This parody is funny but at the same time sad………
Unfriendly reminder that in America those in power find it reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.

Remember when Nickelodeon had a song about sexual harassment
The events leading up to the girls singing about sexual harassment are also really good examples for a Nickelodeon show. (I went and hunted down the episode to see. What? I wanted context and the context was just as good as the song.)
So today at work I had to wait on this customer who was horribly rude and disrespectful without any reason to be. She kept making me smell her laundry and kept blaming the mistakes of the dry cleaners directly on me, despite my multiple attempts to tell her that I was only a cashier, and that I didn’t actually do the dry cleaning.
Anywhoo, this really helped remind me how treating customer service people with genuine kindness -without any uncalled for rudeness and disrespect- can really help brighten their day.
So tonight, I was at the mall with a friend, and it was getting pretty late to the point where most places were beginning to close. We stopped at the food court to get a quick snack, and I decided to go to Arby’s because of their wonderful curly fries, and I was helped by this exhausted cashier. At the end of the transaction, I just smiled at her and said, “Have a nice night!” Pretty cliche and generic, I know (especially considering how much I say this to my own customers), but she clearly wasn’t expecting it and seemed pleasantly surprised and happily wished me the same.
I feel like I took all of the negative feelings I was feeling from my own err, difficult customer and turned them into something positive I could give to someone else. I don’t know I guess all I’m trying to say is that a little kindness can go a long way and make people happier than you’d think.
