Pissed off

I have been wrapping hampers without a grumble even though it could become such a routine and boring. Nevertheless, this is my job and I have to do it.

I would say I did it well..not to praise myself. Each time a customer came in our shop, he/she got to buy his/her chosen hamper. Never once that I had no supply of hampers. 

I kept on doing hampers according to the situation. Whichever was finishing, I had to top up.

Yesterday, I had done some extras and today it was a rather slow sale. I didn't wrap any hampers until evening. But after 5pm, customers seemed to clear almost all my hampers. So I had to top them up. 

As I was doing, customers just came in to buy. Until at about 9pm, only left two hampers and I was still doing one.

Suddenly, the boss deliberately showed his rough way of handling the hampers. He said, 'You are slow. This is the way you should do it. No need to do it gently.'

I replied: "I'm tired". Actually I had slowed down as I knew I didn't need to rush anymore.

I quickly finished up the last hamper, cleared my desk and made my way back home even though it's not time to close the shop yet.

I'm pissed off! I'm thinking to myself: Why the boss didn't see what I had done best. He only knows how to criticise.

Well, I reached home playing cool as my mum was around. I went in my bathroom and took my long bath. After bath, I told myself: No point getting irritated by those remarks!

When tomorrow comes, I will forget all about that.

    1. No worries, I guess the boss didn't mean what he said. He's most probably as tired as you after a long day serving customers.

  16. perhaps he didn't really mean what he said, just that the tone could be a little harsh.. but since you have already forgotten about that the next day, it's not really a big matter.. :)
