    As I stated before, I am well known at TDS for keeping my cool under even the most extreme pressure. In the almost 4 years I have worked there I have covered so many other CM's shifts I can't count them, I never take my scheduled breaks unless we're running over on payroll, etc.
    Also, I have never ONCE been assaulted, verbally abused, berated, etc. either. I will come on shift sometimes and I will hear some horror story about how I shoulda' been there 30 mins. ago when some guest completely took a CM apart. Has never happened to me. I don't know if it's the way I look, my age, the sincerity of my tone, or whatever.
    The worst that has ever happened to me was a guest that raised her voice to me a bit about our return policy that I had politely and respectfully explained to her. She left grumbling. 15 mins. later she was back in queue and I was waiting to get more. Instead, in front of all the other guests in queue for them to hear, she profusely apoligized. At which point I told her right back that that spoke well of her character to come back and do that, in turn making her feel good as well.
    That is very fortunate.

    I think a mall stores are a different animal. Theme parks bring out the worst both for the CMs and Guests. Many families not getting proper rest, very hot conditions, 24/7 time with family that many are not accustomed to, frustration of long lines, hustle to make ADRs, lots come into play. My folks neighbors just came back from a cruise/WDW trip. Dad owns a beer distributing corp, has 5 year old twins. A reality check for Dad for 10 days 24/7 with wife and kids.

    I'm with you though, my temperament doesn't lean that direction either and neither does my DS. Some people are just ignorant in general. Once they have an issue they flip out, call people demeaning names, etc. goal to take whoever is in their path down, just little respect for others. There are Guests with very short fuses and go off into their little tangents and rant. These same guests likely go off more than once during their vacations. That is why good training to combat ugly guests is the best defense.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Need the washer to finish before I shower. Really feeling lazy but I have a lot to do. Listening to Disney music instead.

    I just sat down. Eight loads of laundry done and almost all put away. 2 more to go, towels and beach towels, that will hopefully fit in one load. Summer.

    Yes they had another talk and he realized he never even asked her about how she felt. They are really feeling the same things. Imagine how talking could solve problems.

    Woot! Nice! Finally a TV that The Mom can watch too. My DD has been starting the series Parenthood since she came home from school on Netflix

    Are you posting from your phone or is that a big doctorate word in your post?
