Oh brother, I must have something wrong w/ me because jerk customers at my job made me yell at them & tell them to not be jerks to the new guy. They MADE me! Understand? Because they were jerkwads, their jerkwaddedness rubbed off on me & had me appear as a jerk. I also accused one guy of specifically being "passive aggressive", which seemed to calm him down for a moment, but I later felt stupid when I realized he was mostly being outright "aggressive". Moron! I coulda really called him out & looked like a badass, but instead I dropped the ball by labelling him the wrong specific emotion. I don't think he noticed. Also I mocked this woman on the phone when she couldn't get what she wanted & kept looking for new ways to ask. Here's the tail end of the conversation:
ME (wanting to get off the phone):
No I'm sorry, we can't do that.
WOMAN (wanting to be annoying):
...but enhhh, ennh-er..--
ME (mocking her):
ENHH ENHH ENNHH!!!-That's how it is, yep!
WOMAN (outraged by my mockery):
Oh my gaw--WHAT is your name?
ME (don't care/little scared):
Josh? Are you wearing a hat!?
ME (not wearing a hat):
Ah, yeah, I know who you are... I know who you are... yeah... Bye.
Would you believe that that transaction left me w/ a sour feeling?
