My Pet Peeves List For The Jewelry Counter

This is one of the areas where I work at, and it surprises me how rude people can be to the person working behind the counter. After 5 years of it there are certain things that stick out. There are more of them, but I’ll leave that for the book I’m writing. Here are my pet peeves for the jewelry counter:

Quit telling me how to do my job. I’ve been working there for so long I really don’t need you to tell me how to do a watch battery, and who to serve first.

Don’t get mad at me when I can’t fix your watch. I don’t have the tools a professional does so the only way I can open one is if it has a latch. If not it requires a pressurized tool. Nothing I have…

I don’t make the rules, and I can’t work on your watch if it’s not a brand we carry in the store due to liability issues.

I hate it when you interrupt me when I’m with someone else because you have a “quick question” have you heard of waiting your turn? Stop being impatient and never interrupt me when I’m with someone.

If they did it at the other store then go there, since each store is run differently…

Not all the stores are the same. They are different and carry different stuff. What one store has the other might not, and I keep telling people they might be exclusive to that store.

Don’t ask me where an item is without looking for it first….

Don’t tap on the glass counter it’s annoying, especially if I have a migraine.

Don’t yell at me about the price of the batteries since I don’t control it.

I don’t care if it’s cheaper at another store if it’s so cheap then go there I really don’t care at all.

Don’t ask me the price if it’s on the tag. Use your head and read first then ask me.

At the counter we don’t have a weighing station so don’t get mad about us not being able to ring up weighable items.

Don’t complain about having to ring up items in the cases at the jewelry counter. That’s the rule, and I didn’t make it. I’ll be happy to walk it up for you to the register just be nice, and don’t be rude about it.

Never, ever film us or take our pictures if we are doing our jobs, and you can’t stand us following the rules.

Never leave your trash on a shelf; instead throw it in a trashcan.

Never leave items in the wrong spot. I hate you if you do this.

Take your attitude somewhere else. I really don’t care if you had a bad day; it doesn’t mean you need to throw it back at me.

If the register has issues, never blame me for it. I don’t control how much money your card has. You do. Not my fault.

Don’t glare at me if you are waiting in line.

Always keep the packaging and receipt for a return.

Don’t get mad about us not doing a return if it’s past the date.

Never use your finger or whistle to get my attention since I’m not a dog.

Don’t remark how it’s such a nice day and how you feel sorry for me being stuck behind the counter.

Don’t ask me if we have a bathroom since we do at the front and the back. It will actually say restroom above it, but what am I saying? Half of the people act like they don’t read anyway.

Don’t ask me if we will ever get a certain item in since we won’t if it’s an old one.

If something is out of stock then it’s out, and we don’t have any in the back cases. Stop bugging me about it.

Don’t be rude period it wont get you anywhere. There is a customer that comes in that I hate dealing with since she is always rude to me by yelling at me when she asks me something.

Once we are closed we are closed, and don’t make me open it back up just so you could get one little thing.

We are human and we make mistakes no reason to make us feel bad about it.

Don’t ask me about stuff online since I don’t work in that area. And if it’s online only then it will say that.

If I ask you if you need help, you don’t need to be rude about it or cut me off.

Lastly stay off your cell phone when you are talking to me and asking for help. It’s rude and it shows me I am not a person worth your time when you need my help. Just put it down when talking to me. I’m a person behind the counter, and not a slave. Just be nice to us and we will be happy to go out of our way for you.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
