Five-Hundred Word Challenge 348: Closer to Christmas

Well, we draw ever closer to Christmas and all I can think of is getting to the end of the year, for Christmas is not a time that I want to be spending my time doing things with.

Such is the way of things, I guess.

I am at work and the customers may be furious if they are not hungover. It is getting close to Christmas and all they can think of is blaming customer service for their own terrible life decisions, such as ordering things at the last minute and then getting annoyed that what they ordered will not arrive in time, despite the warnings that they were provided on our website advising that ordering after a certain time may mean that they will not get what they want before Christmas and may have to wait a few days extra.,

Our sincerest apologies for your not being able to read, you intelligent human being.

Yes, I am tired and grouchy. I don’t care. Today is a day of work and most of the customers will be unpleasant, unless they won’t be unpleasant, in which case I shall swallow my words as I sow rightly should.

Such is the way of work when most of the customers are unreasonable and don’t like the idea of using a little thought, instead preferring to get aggro over the fact that they need something to blame as it means that they don’t have to face the responsibility that they bring up[on themselves.

It certain is a work day today. It is a little warm outside, but soon the air conditioning will be turned on, in which the office will drop to some temperature below twenty degrees Celsius.

This time I have come prepared. I have gloves, I am wearing pants instead of shorts and I also have a beanie.

I probably should have taken a jacket with me, but I felt that that may be a little too excessive, so I’ll just stick with what I have.

I’m almost certain that my arms will be fine.

Soon the Christmas rush will be over and the calls will return to a normal volume. Less getting hammered with enquiries about orders that have been delayed due to a huge increase of orders around Christmas, especially at the last minute.

Less calls from people who don’t know what they are doing and want to put the blame on someone. Less calls from blah blah blah.

I am feeling a little grouchy this morning, but I am sure that with a little bit of time it will pass and I will be back to feling less than grumpy.

I’m sure it will happen at some point during the day.

Maybe it won’t. Maybe I am deluding myself.

Still, there are calls to be taken and customers to help  and soon Christmas will be past.

So, here they come. Here come the calls. I will be ready.

Or I will just be grouchy. I don’t know yet.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 05:27:65

A rant that could be a little more sharp, but is otherwise fine. Probably.

Written at work.
