The Real Housewife of Claycord – Every Thursday at 2pm on Claycord.com
I’m back! Yay!
This week, I want to talk about rude parents who don’t watch their children!
I’ve told you about 200 times in the past that I work in the Sunvalley Mall, which in my mind is the people watching capital of the World.
I work part-time in a store that has a lot of breakable items.
On Saturday afternoon, a woman came in with FIVE children, who were all under five (seriously, and none of them were twins).
The kids were out of control. The woman was asking questions to one of the other store employees, and completely ignoring her children. I was watching the children, but I was also talking to another customer, so I couldn’t stop what was about to happen. About three minutes after they came into the store, the youngest of her fivesome broke a glass figure we had in the store. She apologized, then about two minutes later, another one of her children broke two things as he slid his arm across a shelf.
In all, the store lost about $75 worth of merchandise.
When my boss approached the woman telling her he would like her to pay for at least half of the damage created by her little monsters (my words, not his), she said “I’m ain’t payin’ for nuthin’, ain’t that why you got insurance?”.
Why are people so damn rude?
Growing up, I always heard from my parents, “if you break it you buy it”. Fortunately, I never broke anything inside a store, but if I did, I know my parents would have their checkbook out faster than I can say “pie”.
The woman ended up walking out of the store, leaving broken glass all over, and my boss said there wasn’t anything he could do to make her pay for the items, so he just let her go.
If you broke something inside a store, would you pay for it, or would you just pretend it didn’t happen?
A few things I saw around Claycord this week:
- I saw a guy being ticketed for parking in a disabled spot in front of CVS on Ygnacio Valley Road. His excuse to the cop who was ticketing him was “but I was just returning my movie to the redbox“
- Speaking of CVS, why do they have carpet in their stores?
- That thunder & lightning storm last week was so beautiful. I wish we had more of those. Who agrees?
The Real Housewife of Claycord Housetip of the Week:
- To get something out of a heat register or under the fridge add an empty paper towel roll or empty gift wrap roll to your vacuum’s hose. It can be bent or flattened to get into narrow openings.
That’s it for this week.
I hope you all have a wonderful week, see you next Thursday at 2pm!
It’s time for me to go make a pie!
