My Top Ten

There are things you should consider THINKING about before actually SAYING when you come into an herb shop,.... and if you are coming into the shop I work at, I'm begging you to give it one more thought before you say any of the following to me:

  1. Do you know anything about herbs?
  2. When is the other lady in here? She knows more.
  3. You wouldn't know anything about this stuff would you?
  4. You only know whatever you've learned since you started working here, right?
  5. Wow! You know more than I thought you would!
  6. Are you SURE the other lady isn't here?
  7. Are you hiring? (the answer is no, and then...)Oh ok, well I need something to help me pass a drug test, whatcha got?
  8. Oh,... you're not Linda.
  9. This stuff right here will give you cancer.
  10. I'll just come back when SHE'S here.
For the record, there are store clerks I prefer as well. It doesn't always mean I think the others are any less capable of doing the job I need done. It's just because I've gotten acquainted with them and enjoy the opportunity to be around them and be uplifted by their character qualities. Just the same, I would NEVER EVER tell one of the other store clerks "you don't know what you're doing, right?" How rude!

So in a nutshell, think first. It actually encourages me to be nicer in return. And believe me,...I DO know which herbs will give you diarrhea or make you throw up!

  1. Do I need to come and smack some folks for you? I can see you aren't Linda. And as for whether you know anything about herbs, tell them you have a split personality, and today you are the smart one.
