Working in retail can open your eyes to a whole world of bizarre people. My previous retail job was like working on a different planet, most of the people I interacted with seemed very polite, well spoken and er, just, normal I guess. My current job has an entirely different atmosphere, a completely different set of customers, they’re not all bad but ugh. I’m so sick of answering stupid questions. Day after day, I’m asked the most stupid things. Like, “Can you delete the photos from my camera please?” or, “I don’t know how to use the bluetooth in my phone, can you do it for me?” When I have a million other things to do, my job isn’t to sit there and figure out how to use YOUR phone.
I’ve had customers yell obscenities at me because the computers freeze, because 120 photos can’t be printed in five minutes, because I have to take a few details down when I’m selling a pre-paid phone. It’s like these people just forget that I’m only a human, I’m only a sales assistant, I can’t bend rules for them and I can’t control freaking computers! The other day, I learnt, that last week, a few workers had the unfortunate task of confronting a customer who had been jerking off in the fitting rooms, someone had to clean that shit up! Tonight I was told that this has happened on previous occassions. Man, what the fuck is wrong with people? Another girl informed me, that just the other week, a customer hit her because she politely told her not to jump in front of other people in a line. Dude, violence is wrong and it is not the answer nor is it ever justifiable for a reason like that. If I were that girl, I would have struggled not to go insane and demand that charges be pressed. Just because I’m wearing a work uniform, doesn’t mean people are allowed to treat me like shit. Geez!
Eh, see how thin my hair is? I hate it
Sometimes, while working on the images for Dark Vice, I begin to go off track and often begin experimenting. I wanted to share some of my experiments. Can you believe I had the intention of keeping the style more simple for these images? All my attempts to be ‘minimal’ seem to fail miserably. Minimalism just isn’t in me I guess.
I decided to give this random gif a rainbow of colours.
My trusty creepers.
