7. Be nice.
Let’s just take a minute to realize that I work early mornings, late nights, weekends and holidays. When you’re at home with your family enjoying Thanksgiving dinner, I’m home asleep in order to prepare for the biggest day of the year. When you’re opening presents on Christmas day and watching A Christmas Story with your quirky family, I’m at home sleeping to prepare for the next biggest shopping day of the year. (You know, the one where you return all the stuff you got the day before.) I never see my family. I deal with a lot of ungrateful people who think they deserve service at the drop of a hat. You can yell and be rude, but I have to smile, nod and tell you to have a nice day after you just called me a bitch.
