I think I am the only person in the world who's currently grateful that the weekend is over. I cannot do 15 hours straight on my feet any more.

I refuse to smile at any more drunken 40-somethings blatently staring down my top (newsflash guys - you can't see anything! I checked myself in front of a mirror before I left!). I refuse to be polite when you watch me send everything through my till and then tell me it's all on a tab. I refuse to say 'excuse me' to anyone behind the bar standing chatting when I'm working my arse off. I refuse to find the last rounded Stella glass for you because you 'only wanted Stella because of the pretty glasses'.

I love French guys who tell me it's OK to serve wine in half-pint glasses because 'zat is verry French', and who ask me if I 'do everything here?' and who wear flat caps inside because 'it is ze style, no?'. I love my regulars who buy packs of Pork Scratchings and tell me I have to share the pack with them. I love regulars who tell me I'm the one pouring them their best pints after my boss has just yelled at me. I love cute blond guys who are patient enough to let me deal with my more pissy regulars and then ask me first if I'm OK.

I love my job, I just hate how many hours I spend doing it... And now I can only speak coherantly in French. C'est tres amusant, non? ♥

Vous n'êtes pas le seul qui aime son travail, mais déteste leurs heures.

I think that's right. Hahaha. I'm totally with you on this one, I love my job - but sometimes the hours just make you want to scream. <3

I'm here if you ever need to rant - I'll give you my number when I talk to you next. xxx

I think there's a limit to the amount of time you can be nice to people for. I need about half an hour to settle in behind the bar, and then I'm fine for about seven hours, and after that... kinda depends.

Thank you. I tend to rant in blocks of text that never make it into public - being brought up British and Military has not been good for my emotional development... ♥

Sometimes it's the regulars who watch out for you that make it all worth it.

I was about to drop to my knees and cry on the floor at that stage, so he was my knight in shining armor! Yeah, they know me pretty well now, they know when my boss is getting to me and how to cheer me up. Sometimes, I love them! ♥

::.nuzzles and snuggles a bunch.::

I hated stupid people when I worked that just bitched and complained when I was doing my job well. But those few customers that were just super nice always helped my day out.

You has to come back online again soon. We shall make everything better by Chace Crawford picspams <3 XD

*snuggles*

Mostly, I let the complaints just slide off me. I know when I'm doing a good job. But my boss calling me out and then my regulars contradicting her was nice.

I shall, soon in fact, and we can exchange more pretties! ♥
