I don’t like showing up to the bank on a Sunday afternoon and dealing with the miserable people waiting in line ahead of me.
The two of us all want to get service, however it doesn’t make it better to complain loudly for us all to hear.
I’m not a confrontational lady by nature, so they supply myself and others anxiety when they start shouting or berating the employees at the bank. Recently I started walking in with my headphones in my ears and music playing to drown out the talking and complaining among the other people waiting in line alongside me. As long as I do this and stare at the ceiling, people respectfully leave myself and others alone. I know it’s a real shame that the lobby at my local cannabis dispensary is even worse than the bank, and that’s on a weekly basis at rush minute. This unique cannabis dispensary is a important company with locations in every neighborhood throughout the whole state. They’re known for a ton of strange products and lots of sales on those products. That’s why they get a lot of people from all sociodemographics and ages, however it’s the seasoned folks that seem to be the most verbally aggressive and they’re often the ones in the room with the most currency. You can do an early “check-in” on the dispensary’s website as you’re pulling up to the store if you venue an online pickup order an minute or more than one ahead of time. It puts you in a priority queue ahead of random walk-ins that don’t have an order made. But those people recognize entitled to get service at the same speed as all the people else, which isn’t how the plan works at this cannabis dispensary.
