To The People Who Are Rude To Staff Members

I'm talking to you Miss "I want to speak to the manager"


I have worked the same job since I was 15. Since my days of working concessions and front desk on a worker's permit, I have seen a lot of different employees come in. However, if you've ever worked in Guest Services or any sort of job where you are dealing with the public, you know it is the worst when people give you a hard time.

There are many ways that people can fall into this category. For one, if you are that person who comes fifteen minutes before closing. I want you to know how upsetting that is to the people who work at that facility. Yes, it is true we are open but if we are trying to close and you have to be that guy who stops in with five minutes to spare, it is extremely frustrating. There is really nothing we can do about this one but if you are ever trying to stop in somewhere at night, have some respect and come at a decent hour.

Our next problem is those people who don't realize when something is out of our control. For example, I am eighteen years old. Yes, I am a manager but obviously, there are people above me who oftentimes give me the orders that I present to the public. If you want to get mad at someone, you should make sure that you are actually talking to the person who is responsible for your anger. We've all heard the saying, Don't shoot the messenger here people.

I would also like to give a shoutout to those people who don't listen to you when you call them out for breaking a rule. Yes Ma'am, I can see your upset but if I'm asking you not to do something, I probably have a reason. Most employees are not out to get their customers so if they are asking you to abide by the rules, they probably have a good point.

I love my job but it gets tough when those who you serve don't respect your boundaries or the rules presented to them. You may be older than the employee you speak to but we still hold some authority. Next time you visit a public place or a place or service, I recommend that you give the employees a smile or a nice "please" and "Thank you", it makes our day better and it might just make yours better too.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.
