Title: The Only Light in the Dark
Author: snarkysweetness
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Skye/Ward with Coulson
Summary:  No one can be trusted. They hide in plain sight. They’re right under our noses. They make us like them, form attachments, question everything. Skye knows it’s foolish to not lose hope, to keep trust in the team, in the man she loves, but in her heart she knows her life is safe in their hands and right now, that was the only thing that mattered.
Warnings: Sexy times.
Disclaimer: I own nothing.
Author’s Notes: I get to see AoS last b/c time zones so I’m channeling my anxiety into writing about theories floating around that will most likely be Jossed as I write this but I don’t care. I also blame Annie for encouraging me.

A couple of sucks from the thrift shop

Recap: Thrift store assistant manager.

---

Hey, yo, I realize my stretched ears are big. They're an inch, in fact. I realize this is amusing/disgusting/amazing depending on who you are.

But... Don't... don't come up and grab my plugs. Don't do that. It's really flattering you asked where I got them and that you liked them so much, but DON'T PUT YOUR HANDS ON THEM??? I get that they're like huge cute brass fox heads but they're in MY ears, not yours. That's gross.

---

If you're going to call me on the phone and ask me to look through 3 different huge racks of clothing for specific brands in specific sizes, the very least you could do is extend an ounce of human decency. I know you're looking for specific sizes but you don't have to scream at me when I tell you there's a size smaller. I know that's not exactly the size you asked for, but different companies vary slightly in sizing, I'm just trying to help.

No, I can't hold items for you. It's not my rules, it's the store's. I have been verbally reprimanded for holding items for customers more than 3 times, and I just can't risk it anymore. I don't like to have to tell you no, but a lack of planning on your part doesn't constitute an emergency on mine. We just don't have the space to pile things up for people who 50% of the time never come back to get them anyway.

Now, when I tell you this, the appropriate response would be "ok." Not LITERAL ACTUAL SCREAMING about how you've "donated so many clothes" (the people that say they donate regularly almost never do) to our store and you're "GOING TO TAKE [YOUR] BUSINESS ELSEWHERE TO [other thrift shop] EVEN THOUGH IT SMELLS IN THERE"

I honestly do not give two shits. I don't. We don't subsist solely on donations we get to our specific location. We order stuff from our warehouse. Go ahead, give it to the other place. They're worse than us in pricing, so whatever.

I almost broke down crying on the phone and eventually hid some of the things I found for her in other sections because she was making me so nervous with her screaming and anger and demanded the items be held for her. She'll be in tomorrow during my shift to get them. Sigh.

Divided by a Common Language

Dear Ma'am,

No, really, it's not that I don't want to help you. I would love to help you! In fact, I am actually, at this moment, trying to help you. Because I can't sell you the "Nike Under Armour" unless you actually tell me what it is, which is why I --

I see. It's "Under Armour," except it's made by Nike. Except Under Armour kind of makes a lot of things, so if you could maybe --

Oh, thank you for waving that shirt in my face while yelling "Like this! I want this, but Nike!" That's actually a reasonable way of showing me what you want. Well, I mean, apart from the in-my-face and the yelling, but.

Here! Thermal mock neck shirts, in white, made by Nike.

... what do you mean, the ones the other parents have were only twenty-five dollars?

(I did find the shirts she wanted. Eventually. They were neither Nike nor Under Armour, but we found them. Just -- I mean, I'm bad with words, too. I understand. But I don't get mad at other people for that. Is it me? Maybe it's me.)

Yes, I have a lower back tattoo. Yes, my shirt had ridden up slightly when I crouched down to put a log in the pubs fire. But you DO NOT have any excuse to touch said tattoo! I'm glad you were offended when I asked you not to touch me and left, because quite frankly you are a creep. And your wife thought so too. I hope she carried on giving you hell after you left because quite frankly, you deserved it.

No love,

Ok. Superman ...

You lie. All the time. Completely unnecessarily. You make yourself out to be some sort of hero in every story and life saver or sports star most cases. No one really listens to you anymore because everything you say is bollocks.

But it isn't the lying we really hate about you, it's the stealing. First it was scratch cards. We had no proof so we double counted morning and night. Oddly enough they stopped going missing. Then cigarettes. Always the same brand, so they got counted every day and they stopped going missing. Now I know you don't smoke so you are pinching them for someone.

So goods are no longer disappearing because we had to step up security so what does go missing? Money. On my godsdamned till. Which was incredibly stupid of you. I can't count my end of shift really well and I often end with ten up or down and you heard me say that to my manager as a joke. I know what went through your tiny little brain. So the next day my till was down £75.

What you didn't realise was that even though I can't count my end of day, I can count my individual transactions. My till each day is only ever pennies out (it's a petrol station and they never have the pennies when they get their fuel) never pounds. NEVER tens of pounds. You picked the wrong sucker. I look forward to when you get sacked. I'll be grinning like the Cheshire Cat you thieving git.

There's more to this but it's the theft that is the main issue and I have a real hatred of thieves.

Did you just pluck that price out of your arse?

I work in a clothing/home decor store situated within a large garden centre.

Today a woman and, I assume, her mother, came up to the till with four fleeces. I did the usual greeting, asked them if they needed a bag and the coat-hangers blah blah blah. Then shit got bad when I told them the price.

"Okay that's £72 then please."

"WHAAAAAT?" the young woman screamed. "NO IT'S NOT!"

"Sorry! I might have over-charged you. Let me just..."

"YEAH YOU HAVE! SORT IT OUT!"

She was really REALLY angry, but I checked, and I hadn't overcharged her. She really did pick up four fleeces for £18.00 each.

"These fleeces are £18.00 each..."

"WHAAAAAT? NO THEY'RE NOT! THEY'RE £5.00 EACH!"

Um. Really? And where the fuck did you see that? Our t-shirts start at £10.00, did you really think you'd be able to pick up four fleeces for £20.00 for the lot?

At this point I show her the tag on one of the fleeces and she redirects her anger onto her mother.

"YOU SAID THEY WERE £5 EACH!"

"Sorry I thought they were!" her mother tried to explain.

I am honestly totally clueless as to how the mother thought they were so cheap.

She turned back to me at this point.

"WELL YOU JUST LOST A SALE! £70 ODD QUID FOR FOUR FLEECES IS RIDICULOUS! YOU ARE WAY TOO EXPENSIVE! COME ON LET'S GO!"

Head. Meet desk.

Luckily all my other customers were really cool. In fact, a bad customer is a rarity.

Bad news people. SHIELD's ratings have continued to decline. Meanwhile, NCIS's ratings have risen last Tuesday. Don't expect this series to land a second season. It's just as well. When American viewers prefer the mediocrity of NCIS over AGENTS OF SHIELD, it makes one wonder if pop culture is going down the tubes.

I demand you apologize for NOTHING!

`Tis me, the Fabulous Baker Boy!

This one was a real "Mind Doozy", so please bear with me while I try to figure it out myself.

A customer came in, said she had an order for a 100 piece fried chicken to pick up from the deli. She was running late and seemed testy. This con fused the deli workers because they didn't have any orders for that day, and when they told her this, she threw an absolute fit! Understandably so, had she placed the order at this store, but here's the kicker: We have three stores on the same road, all within traveling distance of each other, so every so often, a customer places an order by phone at the wrong store, or comes to the wrong store to pick said order up.

The deli workers asked if she ordered by phone. She said yes. (Actually she screamed it.) They asked if she was sure she placed it at this particular location. Again, she confirmed this. Out of idle curiosity, the deli manager excused herself into the back where she placed a few calls to the other stores, and lo and behold, the order had been placed at one of the OTHER stores (despite her insistence she placed it at this one!).

So the deli manager went out to the customer and informed the customer of this little fact, and the customer just stared at her.

CUSTOMER: Well aren't you going to apologize!?

DELI MANAGER: For what?

CUSTOMER: For this mix up! Now I'm going to be really late!

DELI MANAGER: Ma'am, with all due respect, YOU'RE the one who went to the wrong store.

CUSTOMER: Customers are never wrong! (and she proceeded to storm out of the store, presumably to go to the correct store this time)

I can't believe she wanted an apology for her own mistake!

Happy to Disappoint You ^^

More of a WTF than a suck, but it's sort of funny so I'm posting it :)

On Tuesday night I was on the bar with a couple of other girls, and it was quite quiet until a group of 8 guys came in. They were obviously on a pub crawl and were kind of rowdy, using bad language which was bothering our other customers, so I'd asked them to tone it down as it was only about 7pm and we had families in. Most of the guys were fine about me asking, but one of them, the loudest one who seemed to think he was something special turned to me and said he wanted to prove a point about barmaids.

Him: I want to ask a question.
Me: Ok...
Him: What's the capital city of Abyssinia?
Me: Well, if I recall correctly Abyssinia is Ethiopia, so the capital would be Addis Ababa.
Him: .... I asked the wrong fucking barmaid.

And with that he drank up and insisted they left the pub. Maybe I just screwed up a game, or he was simply trying to make a point that barmaids are stupid, but the look on his face when I answered his question was just priceless. I have to admit that I was feeling a wee bit smug the rest of the night :P If only I could get rid of all annoying customers that way.

Sucks from the land of soap

BG: I'm a soapmaker who makes cold-processed goat's milk soaps and lotions and lotion bars and felted soap goodies and felted animals and all sorts of stuff, and sell it at farmers markets and craft shows.

Lady came up to me at one of my farmers markets last summer and asked me if I'd ever heard of calamus. I was all like o_O no? She said she was from a little town called Calamus and had heard that it's an herb from the Bible and so she would love to try a soap made with calamus. She seriously stood at my booth for 20 minutes going on about this freakin' herb, to the point where I lost at least one customer who didn't want to wait on her to finish.

So if someone requests a particular fragrance, I'll try to make it, because usually if one person wants it, others will want it too. The most commonly requested fragrances are lavender, lilac, sandalwood, and patchouli. But it does take 6 weeks to get a new soap on the market (plus time to order/source the fragrance, etc.) I had the devil of a time finding calamus because apparently it's not that pleasant of a scent (I did some research on the herb and posted about it on my blog if you care :)) But I did eventually track down some a.) calamus essential oil, and b.) dried calamus herb.

I made a lovely soap with it and proudly took it the next time I did that market. And of course I saw that lady, and of course she looked right through me and avoided my booth. Because if she hadn't, I wouldn't be posting to C_S.

She didn't put a gun to my head and force me to make the soap, but it annoys me that she went on and on about it and then forgot I existed. Feh.

It's okay to laugh at this one...

Probably more wtf than suck. My friend and I were checking out at Walgreens, the guy in front of us finished paying then stood there for about 5 seconds before grabbing his bag and leaving. We start to check out when it happens, just a wave of stench belonging to a classic SBD. My friend and I look at each other (we knew if it was one of us a smirk/giggle would show up), then the cashier finally catches some of the assault and became equally horrified. I ended up running and grabbing her an air freshener, it was just horrendously foul! I could understand one sneaking up on you and leaving from embarrassment, but this fucker stood there and let it out! It was seriously three feet to the door outside (though this one could have made it's presence known in an open field on a windy day, from upwind!). We at least had a good giggle, and when she told us about the survey for the $3000 contest thing, said "no need to mention the bomb at the beginning of your transaction"

Community Service and volunteers

One of the 'jobs' someone can do for their community service is work for however many hours at the Humane Society. To those people, the following
I don't care what you did, why you did it, or how many hours that evil judge gave you. No, I'm sorry, I really don't care. Anyway, you'll probably be working with the guys in the dog kennel. Tell them.
When you are here, you are here to work. Not play games on your cell phone, text about how 'bad' the kennel smells, (hey....almost fifty dogs in there overnight...yeah it smells, now get to work scooping that poop) nor are you here to merely play with the puppies. Do your work, or you'll not be doing your community service here.
If told to do something really difficult like sweep and mop the lobby, kindly get the broom (you know, that pole with the straw) SWEEP up any and all items on the floor that, well, are not floor, cages, rugs, chairs or tables. After that, kindly MOP with the mop water and mop which I will get for you. Standing there with a mop in your hand does not get the job done. Oh...and yes, we do want the floor done by the time we open.
For our volunteers, while we are not as hard on you as we can be, we still ask that you do something besides take cell phone pics of the parrot, try and tickle the kitties, stand around and squee over how MANY there are, and ask me stupid questions like, why am I cleaning that cage? (because its my job, I want the cats to be healthy, and it gets me away from most stupid people)
Cutting cage paper is NOT difficult. Yes, it does take some practice, but I have the measurement right there. You just need to make sure the paper is cut, more or less that width. Preferably at least kinda straight. Actually, I prefer to cut the cage paper myself. At least then I know it should cover the entire bottom of the cage. (ok, I also prefer to sweep and mop as well, I know it gets done then)
Finally, to the ladies who take our cats to the adoption center at Petsmart. Yes, we know, you've done a lot for us by getting so many of the cats and dogs adopted. However....
The cats have been fed, you do NOT need to get out the feed barrel and put three days worth of food into each bowl. That is not only wasting food (Science Diet is NOT cheap, even when bought directly from the factory) but it is rather like a hundred pound person binging on thirty thousand calories. Every day...for a week. The cats are fed a weight maintenance diet, with a few (like the ones brought back from the adoption center) on more of a weight LOSS diet. Unless our Veterinarian says something, (and so far, she has said I'm doing it right) that is how I will feed them. Unless, of course, you get me fired (not gonna happen) and YOU can take over the scutwork. I will take my bandaids home with me.

Co worker,

You know, you should get your story checked and verified before you start telling it. And don't go all pissed off because I refute and state the otherwise which is a fact and nothing but a fact like you want to start a fight. Oh, I forgot! You never like to be wrong because like that other coworker, you're never wrong. How stupid of me..

Ok. First of all, I did not do what you said I did. It in fact was you! And yet you still don't believe me when I show you the proof! And all that "if I did that I would have done it properly" shit, you, like I, are just human. We make mistakes. Why don't you own up to yours? It wouldn't kill you. But of course! You, like that other coworker are unblameable. Think I should've learnt my lesson by now...


Hate is a strong word, but well, I hate you. But I feel no malice today because I still made more than you today...
Guess you shouldn't have taken that afternoon nap instead of working, huh?

Between a Boss and a Hard Place

Well, I've been in my new job for less than a month and I'm already facing burnout, and I'm caught between the overall boss and the General Manager. This is my first management position.

Basically the boss and the GM are not seeing eye to eye about certain things. As Duty Manager I have no say in how the business is run, I deal with staff, day to day stuff and customers as well as doing barmaiding and waitressing. Normally this isn't an issue, but there is one thing the two can't agree on that directly affects me, and it's kind of a biggie. And that is breaks for me and the GM.

Some days I'm the only manager on duty, some days the GM is. I don't have an issue with this, I expected it, but what I also expected is to have a break at some point during the day. The way it is done at the original site is if a manager is on all day they will come in at 9.30, work til 3.00, then have a 3 hour break and come in an work the evening, and that's how the boss wants our site run. But the GM at this site believes we have to be on site, and working, the ENTIRE DAY, grabbing food and the occasional sit down but being there all the time. So it's not unusual to have to work a 14 hour shift, which I did two days in a row last week.

I can't do it. I don't know if its the Fibromyalgia that's causing the issues with that or the fact I'm a mere human, but working all that time without a proper break is killing me, especially when working two 14 hours shifts in a row I finish at 11.30pm and have to be back at work at 9.30am the next day. The GM can't say it's not affecting him because I've seen how tired and stressed out he gets, but he still won't agree with the boss, and I'm caught in the middle. If I take breaks the GM threatens to fail my trial period on the grounds I'm not upto the job because of my health problems, but if I don't the boss gets mad, albeit not with me, but it still sucks.

I need this job, I can't afford to lose it, but at the same time I can't let my health suffer. I have no idea what the hell the GM is thinking about the no breaks things, but then it's not so bad for him as he can do 'office work' and sit upstairs doing that, whereas my duties don't really allow for that. He claims it's what managers have to do, and that's that. It's not like the staff we have couldn't handle a few hours on their own, they are all experienced and trained.

I dunno, maybe I'm just being weak or something, but I feel terrible.

Sometimes it's best to keep your comments to yourself

I was volunteering at the charity shop this morning. Luckily, this incident happened at around 9:15 in the morning and we had no other sucks. It's not THAT bad of a suck, but still...

Two women came in. They weren't being very careful with the clothes as they were browsing, and were raking through the rails and messing everything up like we were a jumble sale. Then they decided to leave, but as they were nearing the door one of the women said to the other, in a loud voice might I add, "The prices in here are fucking disgusting! It's just fucking tat!" Her friend must have told her to shush or something because she then piped up, "Well it's true!" And as they were stood outside the shop I could hear her carrying on, saying "I might as well fucking buy things from a REAL shop!" Then they walked off.

Apparently, this woman has been rude to the other volunteers. She made fun of another volunteer because she speaks with a stammer. She had a go at another volunteer when she asked her if she needed a bag. And she did it to another volunteer when she demanded a bag for a buggy she'd bought and he could only fit it inside a large bin liner.

This is, thankfully, the first time I've seen her. Usually the other woman comes in and browses on her own.

I'm at the clothing/home decor store this afternoon so I would rather not have any sucky customers there. One is enough for today, thanks!

Things I am not

I am not a librarian. I do work in a library, but my title is not librarian (it's computer lab attendant, actually. And we are clearly labeled as such). I do not have the knowledge or training (yet!) to help people with certain things. Don't get mad because I'm "passing you off." I am not. I cannot answer your question, especially not in a timely manner, so I am taking you to someone who can.

Example: You need to do a paper on someone historically important but somewhat obscure. I can Google that for you, or show you how to on one of our computers, but I can't tell you what links might have the best information. Also I am not familiar enough with the kinds of databases that might have better information. I can certainly look through the db list available on my library's site, but will fumble a lot. If I were doing this for myself, whatever. But you, patron, presumably want to get out of the library sometime in the next 2 hours. Please, let me lead you to a librarian.

Example 2: Genealogy. Please let me transfer you to the whole damn department we've got on the subject. D:

And honestly, part of it is I need to be available to help those with computer questions. But this leads us to...

I am not tech support.Collapse )

I am not a cable technician. Why the hell are you calling us with a cable question?

I am not a lawyer and cannot help you with law junk. I can point out our books on law and take you to where we keep a folder of common law forms, but cannot give any advice. I am more than happy to look up lawyers online and give you some numbers.

I am not a tax preparer. I have no clue what tax forms you need. If you tell me what you need and we don't have them I can certainly print them off, though. Also I am more than happy to look up the numbers of tax prep places.

For those two, please see: Liability, and how the library wants no part in that.

I am not a bank. The library is not a bank. We don't do a lot of cash transactions, amazingly enough, so we may not have the money to change out your 20-dollar bill. We sure as hell don't have the change for a 50 or 100 and will in fact direct you to one of four banks within a quarter-mile radius. No seriously, three of the banks I can walk to in 5 minutes or less, and the third one in less than 15.

And again, for all of these sucks, they do not suck for simply asking if the library can help/give change/whatever. They suck for getting mad and rude, and for wasting my time when I ultimately cannot help them.
