Thanks for the support, everyone.  Luckily, the manager has knocked it off with that type of stuff, but he is still being a douchebag. 6/10 of the staff already left, and another one is already starting to look for another job too. 

I actually almost quit the other night because I almost had enough.  I decided that since I needed to call him on his bullshit, he would fire me for it, so I thought that I'd just quit because he could do that, but he didn't.  Sure he listened, but he was still making feeble excuses for his actions.  Let's see some of the things that he does:

  • leaves heaps and heaps of clothing from the fitting rooms around the till and never puts them away
  • hangs around the till and essentially steals people's sales
  • never cleans up the store
  • gets the keyholders to do all of the administrative work and refuses to learn how to do it even though it's his job
  • gets bored of something, so he leaves shit all over the place and expects someone else to take care of it
  • interrupts your own work to tell you to deal with a customer while walking away and doing nothing but stand around
  • criticizes people for "incorrect grammar" even though he is wrong and doesn't understand what language even is
Did I mention that he is a complete hypocrite?  For example, the other evening, he and I were the only two who were working.  My brother happened to be in the mall so he came to visit me.  The place wasn't busy at all.  Maybe just three customers total.  While I was talking to my brother, I was still aware of the people around me, always asked if they had any questions or anything, got them fitting rooms, folded clothing and maintained the entire store, etc.  After Ryan left, the manager came up to me and said, "Yeah, I'm going to need you to be on the sales floor while I'm making your sales."  Uh right.  I said something to the effect that it's funny that he mentions it because the opposite happens all of the time.  He then asked me if there was something that I wanted to tell him.  I said, "no" and walked away.  See, so many times I'd be multi-tasking, unpacking boxes and cleaning the store while still managing to help all of the customers around me, and of course I never had the chance to actually ring in said customers whenever they made a purchase.  And wow, while my sales would sit at $30 for three hours, his would magically skyrocket to $800.  As others would say, he seems to think that saying hi at the till and asking where someone is from justifies taking the sale.  So after I walked away from him, I went to the back to put away hangers since our bin was overflowing, and there were zero customers anyway so surely he could handle the sales floor alone. I was gone for not even four minutes, and he came in telling me that he needs me on the sales floor.  When I came out, there were only two customers.  Like seriously dude?  There have been so many times when he would leave the store altogether for 20 minutes at a time while leaving me or someone else alone while it was busy, but apparently that is ok.  Lollerskates.  Apparently last night he left a co-worker in the store all alone for almost forty minutes, and when he came back, he talked to a customer for twenty minutes.  Just basically talked about himself, as if anyone would care.  Oh, how the hypocrisy burns.

Just watched the Canada Day fireworks down the street and they rocked so hardcore.  Better than last year's.

My Uncle Michael passed away.  I am still in absolute shock.  He was more like a father to me.  This shouldn't have happened.
