In The Crazies Come With A dVerse Ho And A Hum!

C is for the CUSTOMERS as they are dVerse and will really make you curse. As I'm sure many have seen or been on the other side of the customer divide. "Always right" my little rhyming ass, if they weren't they got some sass. But anyway Pat used to work at a convenience store way back in the day and thought it would be fun to give it a go at my bay. As plenty of nuts came ashore and they literally did along with plenty more. Besides I can't do the ummm people I deal with now they could find out and have a cow. That would be bad, Pat becoming a canned lad.

Zippity Do Dah, Zippity Day,
He sang out as he went to pay.
Even I knew why he was singing that,
I'm not a naive cat.

Gonna win the lottery tonight,
Which she said every night.
Three down and four across,
She heard it from some moss.

It will be a winner,
I'll never be a sinner.
You should look into him too,
Or damned are you.

What? A language I don't know.
(shrugs shoulders and watches down below)
(He makes his hand go)
(And Pat gets it giving an Ohhh)

Take your big purse and your scrawny ass,
Out the door little lass.
Not falling for your sting,
And getting fined at my wing.

I like boys, I really do.
(He said with a drunk view)
Right! Take your drunk ass out the door,
(Pat had a big knife ready to gore.)

Walk in and grab a thing or two,
Then walk out right in my view.
Got your license plate schmuck,
You really are a dumb umm truck.

Do you have such and such a flick?
Why yes we do you dick.
Know where it is on the shelf?
Right next to the one with the magic elf.

Really I don't know,
You'll have to look for it to show.
Pat really did know though
Right down to the spot on the row.

Put it was fun making the crazies yelp,
The nice ones got the help.
I'm in a commercial for a dollar store,
She smiled as she strutted through the door.

Pfft whoopdi friggin doo,
Her smile no longer grew.
She stomped on out
Then came back in to shout.

You talking about me?
Umm no, I have better things to do at my sea.
I know you were talking about me,
Get over yourself and let me be.

No, Pat was not at all,
As she stomped back down the hall.
The pain in the ass cow,
With the one eye brow.

What's under the box?
Pass it by as it was made by a dog not a fox.
She snuck out and left a present on the floor,
I guess she wanted to explore.

Is there a difference between this milk and that?
Both nasty to Pat.
Maybe they come from a different cow,
What? How should I know? Don't raise your eyebrow.

And so many more came,
Some crazy, some tame.
But these ones came to mind first.
So they got worked into my burst.

Glad I don't do that anymore at my shore. Makes the current one seem better just thinking about that. So I guess I can be thankful for that at my work mat. Although the others did make for good post material and yeah all were the real deal. Now the cat is done with his convenience pass and off I go with my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  1. LMAO What do you mean?? You didn't like that old man making moves on you??? hahahahaha

    A few weeks ago I'm writing up a customer's dry cleaning ticket when he starts going on and on about how we need a tailer. I told him that we already have one. He got so excited! He opened up a grocery store bag to show his DIRTY underwear that had a hole in it. Could we stitch it up since it was near the seam? I said hell no, and he started yelling about how he would think we would want business. My daddy saved me from that one, but really? Your underwear??? For the price of tailoring, buy a new damn pair!

    P.S. What was the present she left you? LOL!!!!!

      He need that hole stitched up so the luck didn't run out
      And you made the poor guy pout and shout..hahaha
      hahahaha you never know what one will pull from a grocery store bag
      Next time ask why first and you may not get to see underwear looking like an old rag...haha

      Lets say the house was attached to the store
      And the she was a dog that like to go on the floor
      So can you guess the present she left when she got out to play
      Each and every time at the work bay..haha

    What? A bat behind the counter wasn't good enough for you?
    Had to be able to stab them through and through?
    That is just eeew.

    This reminds me of what customers say
    when you ask them where their car payments lay.
    As they are behind 3 payments
    and you are there for the wheels, they lament.
    saying all kinds of things to you
    hoping you'll ignore what's due.

  30. I worked at a convenience store once, way, way back when, well actually it was more like a gas station that also sold lottery tix and beer. But I only lasted 3 days, as, like you say, the crazies are for real.. I couldn't take them, put me to the brink, to make matters worse there was a group home right next door, so not only did I have to deal with their not-understanding and without being insensitive all the other stuff they did and do, I couldn't even be mad at them because I understood and felt a sense of bad too. So yeah, out the door I did, that third day when the mgr was cussing about some potato chip display messed up, so dropped the smock and out the door I went. The following friday I went back for that mini check and that mgr jerk said I didn't earn it, luckily I just threatened to sue, so paid up he did. Man, brought back the memories here.

    So, looking back it wasn't as bad as I made it then, but it still sucked. Nothing as cool like Clerks, or even that lame remake Clerks 2.

    1. I suppose if they leave happy
      Unlike a certain Flappy
      One has done their best
      Although they are quite the pest

  46. Your rhyming really rules
    You've got all the tools
    And brains to make it flow
    Responding, I've given it a go.

    It is not as easy as you make it seem
    I guess one could only dream
    To be so talented in poetry, rhyme, and all that
    So, I'll just leave it up to Pat Hatt and the Cat!


    Cheers, Jenn

    1. Not a bad job at all
      As you rhyme at my hall
      For me it just comes out
      No idea how with each shout
      But I give it a hum
      From my little rhyming bum

  50. What? A language I don't know.
    (shrugs shoulders and watches down below)
    (He makes his hand go)
    (And Pat gets it giving an Ohhh)

    Are you saying what I think you're saying? Are you serious?

    You got his license plate? Hahahaha! As in Zippity Do Dah in jail now? That dumb fffffffftruck.

    The one eyebrow.... hahahaha!

    My Angie works in some store selling chocolates and posh cakes and some old fart once said she looked dangerous because she wasn't white. Can you believe that sh@t? Man, I'd be in jail for shooting my customers.

      And made his hand go a certain way..LOL
      I'm sure he is out and about now though
      But yep he went to the don't drop the soap show
      That is just pathetic to say
      He deserves a slap upside the head anyday
      I felt like bashing them in their ugly mug a time or two
      But thankfully I restrained myself from ever letting it come due
