Working In Customer Service, As Told By The Baddest B*tch On The Block, Cardi B

Working In Customer Service, As Told By The Baddest B*tch On The Block, Cardi B

"We're ready for the check." "OKURRRT"

For a majority of us, there will be at least one point in our lives where we work an unpleasant customer service job before landing our ~dream job~. It's just part of life. By working in customer service, you are constantly exposed to the good and bad qualities humanity has. Some customers are the sweetest, most genuine people, while other customers try to crush your soul and eat your happiness (I'm talking about all the unnecessary "I need to speak with your manager" people!!!).

But no matter how frustrating customer service can get, we all usually just swallow our pride and smile through the pain (and also talk shit with the other employees about rude customers once they leave). This can take a lot of willpower, and most of the time we just want to tap into our inner bad bitch (Cardi B) and say "f*ck it." But we can't because then we would all be jobless. But if we could, it would look like this:

1. When you greet a customer and they just stare at you and walk away

OK, rude. I just wasted all that happy energy on you for not even a response?!?

2. When work is slow but your boss won't let you leave

Valid question.

3. When a customer asks to speak to your manager

What I want to say: Bitch, I'm my own manager.

What I actually say: She'll be right with you!! :,,,)

4. When your manager tells the customer exactly what you just said

I always just want to lose all my decency when this happens and just scream "I TOLD YOU SO," but I keep my composure.

5. When a customer comes in two minutes before closing

^ ^ ^ Me using all my strength to hold back my anger.

6. When you haven't even clocked in yet but your boss is already listing off a million things for you to do

7. When customers treat you like trash for no reason

Also, a valid question.

8. When you clock out and a customer tries to stop you on your way out


9. When work is busy but one customer is demanding your full attention and showing no mercy for your stressful situation

10. When customers get upset over menial things that you have no control over

I once had a customer have a hysterical meltdown and yell at me because the restaurant I was a hostess at was out of chicken. DO I LOOK LIKE THE GIRL IN CHARGE OF THE CHICKEN SUPPLY?! NO. QUIT HARASSING ME.

11. When you are asked the same stupid question 500 times a day

Especially when the answer to their question is on seven different signs around the store.

12. When a customer stares you down because they are upset or impatient

Glare at me all you want. It will make me incredibly uncomfortable and insecure but you better believe I'll pretend like it doesn't.

13. When you get paid and it makes everything worth it

Money MOVES!!

Ha, just kidding. I'm broke as hell.

When You Make A Girl An Aunt, You Change Her World In All The Best Ways

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest girl in the world.


My brother and his wife recently blessed our family with the sweetest bundle of joy on planet earth. OK, I may be a little bias but I believe it to be completely true. I have never been baby crazy, but this sweet-cheeked angel is the only exception. I am at an age where I do not want children yet, but being able to love on my nephew like he is my own is so satisfying.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her a very protective person.

From making sure the car seat is strapped in properly before every trip, to watching baby boy breathe while he sleeps, you'll never meet someone, besides mommy and daddy of course, who is more concerned with the safety of that little person than me.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her a miniature best friend.

There is something about an aunt that is so fun. An aunt is a person you go to when you think you're in trouble or when you want something mom and dad said you couldn't have. An aunt is someone who takes you to get ice cream and play in the park to cool down after having a temper tantrum. I can't wait to be the one he runs to.

When you make a girl an aunt, she gets to skip on the difficulty of disciplining.

Being an aunt means you get to be fun. Not to say I wouldn't correct my nephew if he were behaving poorly, but for the most part, I get to giggle and play and leave the hard stuff for my brother.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her the best listening ears.

As of right now I only listen to the sweet coos and hungry cries but I am fully prepared to listen to all the problems in his life in the future.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the best advice giver.

By the time my nephew needs advice, hopefully, I will have all of my life lessons perfected into relatable stories.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her a number-one fan

Anything you do in life sweet boy, I will be cheering you on. I already know you are going to do great things.

When you make a girl an aunt, she learns what true love is.

The love I have for my nephew is so pure. Its the love that is just there. I don't have to choose to show love every day, I don't have to forgive, I don't have to worry if it is reciprocated, it is just there.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest person in the world.

I cannot wait to watch my precious nephew grow into the amazing person that I know he is going to be.

4 Things I Wish High School Me Knew

Every day has a purpose.


People don't give high school enough credit for having the ability to shape your life. It can build you or it can break you and often times there is no in between. As I enter into my senior year of college I have reflected a lot on my college career and how it really has been the best years of my life up to this point, but I know that without a doubt my life would have been so different in I would have known these things as a high schooler.

1. Your life is valuable

But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. - Ephesians 2:4-7

2. You aren't defined by your singleness. 

Daughters of Jerusalem, I charge you by the gazelles and by the does of the field: Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires. - Song of Solomon 2:7

4. You aren't going to fit in

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. - Romans 12:2

4. Your clothes aren't going to fit forever, don't spend all of your money on them 

Then he said to them, "Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions." - Luke 12:15
