I wiped the smile off some ladys face earlier. It was priceless

She told me thank you for being here so people can get food before having the put up with their families. I said we aren't here by choice but thanks anyway. Wiped the smile right off her face

Good for you! Smile-destroying is an important function in a world that is just too happy.

Maybe she'll go home and slap a child or kick a puppy and your cause will be advanced.

[@579836,TempuraShrimp] You are right, and cruelty is the best teaching tool.

You ARE there by choice. You chose to work instead of getting fired, or losing pay. Punishing customers for your choices is the easiest way to go, though.

[@663519,Mamapolo2016] It's not really a choice when you are scheduled

[@579836,TempuraShrimp] It's not a choice you like, but it's a choice all right. Instead of refusing and making yourself uncomfortable when rent comes due, you choose to work and make others feel uncomfortable because you're mad you have to work there to live.

Ok , and what you got from that attitude?
She just said: Thank you 🤔

[@401865,Noni33] I felt pretty good not gonna lie.
Noni33 · 31-35, F
[@579836,TempuraShrimp] Oh Then never mind.
How dare you be yourself! 😏

Isn't that what people preach but then judge you when you are?

[@1181120,Collectivefragment] I used to be a happier person who would crack jokes a lot but I dont do that anymore. I dont have a reason to be happy anymore.
[@579836,TempuraShrimp] Ah well just be you. Surely you could find something to be happy about? Do you have any pets?
TempuraShrimp · 22-25, M
[@1181120,Collectivefragment] I have pets but deep down I'm not happy which is the root of the problem.

Well pat yourself on the back, she was trying to spread good cheer and you lowered yoursef.
TempuraShrimp · 22-25, M
[@423488,curiosi] I didn't lower myself. I simply shut her down because she was trying to justify her bs
Honesty will do that every time.😃

Actually, you ARE there by choice. You CHOSE to show up to work on Thanksgiving Day. [/c]

But it is a choice to accept that schedule, hence accept the working conditions associated with that line of work. You could have chosen better and had the day off. [/c]
Are you always this pleasant? 🧐

[@112526,carpediem] Why should I be Thankful for working on Thanksgiving?
carpediem · 61-69, M
[@579836,TempuraShrimp] You could be sitting at home every day. Be thankful for what you have. And stop whining
