1. Assholes who park next to me in the space that is clearly marked as a redzone. I don't know why it even has a post denoting a space - IT IS NOT GUEST PARKING - but stupid fuckers keep parking in it and blocking my car within an inch of its life. Why anyone would want to park there is beyond me, anyway. It's the corner space, meaning it's difficult to get in or out of it due to two perpendicular cars barely giving you enough room to back out. Today's dick may or may not have gotten a dent and key scratches for his idiocy.
2. People who don't know you very well but act like they do. I'm having a curious issue with my sister's friend's husband. Just from that description, it's pretty obvious that he's not going to be that close to me, and I haven't seen him since my sister got married several years ago. Thing is, now he works at the same store as me, and every time he sees me, he stops to talk. Well, that's fine and all, but he keeps saying phrases along the lines of, "I know you better than that," or he'll start talking about people in his life that I literally have never heard of without giving me any context. I don't really consider myself his friend - more of an acquaintance - and I'm not sure how to get him to back off. He's not exactly doing anything wrong, and so I'd feel bad offending him, but it's irking the hell out of me that he acts like we're old friends when he knows next to nothing about me.
3. People who pretend you have a freedom of choice in certain situations, but it's clear that they are trying to manipulate or guilt trip you into doing a specific action. I get this a lot at work. I'm pretty easygoing, and I don't care what task I'm put on, and I'm also flexible about breaks and lunches, and so I rarely cause a fuss when someone makes a request of me. The problem with this is that it's earning me a troublesome reputation of someone who can be walked upon or ordered around freely. Example: working freight on the sales floor is a job that basically gets you left alone. When my co-workers are doing it, we let them work without interruptions while we handle customers and other tasks.
However, when I am doing it, I am constantly being called back to wait on people. That means pulling the whole cart inside, into the cooler, washing my hands, putting on gloves, and finally making my way over to the customer. By then, they're pissed at having to wait, I get stuck waiting on people for the next hour, and someone else (namely the same one or two people who always wriggle out of waiting on people) takes my job and I never get back to it. Oh, and then I get yelled at for not finishing freight. I have brought this up many times to multiple managers, but the issue goes unresolved.
I mean, like I said, I don't care what task I'm doing, but if they want me to focus on customers, then for fuck's sake, don't assign me to do other things. I have no problem waiting on people all day, but don't ask me then to do something that will remove me from the area and make it difficult to keep up with that central job. Or, better yet, stop being lazy fuckers and wait on people yourself. Stop treating me like I'm the only one capable of doing it. It's not that hard!
