    Basically i give about 200 people a day about 40 seconds tops. I run into alot of assholes. Take alot of no's. The no's dont really bother me that much because i also get some yes. I make decent money, this is neither here nor there.
    Today i had 2 people threaten to call the cops on me.
    The one bitch looked like a bird so i called her out on it. The other fucker dialed 911. I want to etch his windows. Regardless. Can anybody think of some good shit for me to say to these assholes? The best avenue is to just laugh. They want you to get mad and this pisses people off. Nevertheless sometimes i cant control my urge to just tell someone off. Any creative suggestions? Anybody know any good tricks that wont get me arrested? I so far have controlled my urge to piss in lobbys. Last week some shithead yelled at me to not solicit. I told him i wasnt selling ass however he could suck my dick for a price.
    The other thing... you wouldnt believe how many people leave themselves open. Leave a store unattended. Today i walked right into a full warehouse. Lights were off. No cars outside. Door was unlocked. I see purses all day just sitting with no one in sight. People just leave sometimes without locking up. I stress myself to not run registers. Im trying to live right but i got evil streaks. Just on monday i saw fiftys and hundreds. probably more than 400 on a table in a resturaunt. I didnt do anything but this job is testing my weak morals and ethics to the brink

    I've been in a very similar spot (not the stealing thing, the dealing with angry asshole thing)
    and I always found the best way to make the confrontation end is to put the whole crux of
    the conflict directly on them. Like so:

    me: would you be interested in blah blah blah
    them: you cant be selling roar roar roar
    me: you could have just said 'no thanks' and it would have been over. You're making more out of this than necessary. You've got the problem.

    i find it impossible to steal from people -- not big companies -- but people, I can not do it. If i were to do it, i would constantly think about it afterward and not feel right until I gave it back somehow.

    find a way to humiliate the person, so that they reflect upon it afterwards and know that youre right.

    yeah. thanks rum. Thats probably the best thing i could say. Im pretty responsible. I dont steal from these people. I want that to be clear but i need to keep myself in check. This is just the type person i am. I see 3 purses and i start envisioning 3 checkbooks. a bunch of cash and some credit cards.
    I dont fuck around like that.

    In my line of work keeping your attitude is KEY. You let people get under your skin you cant sell shit. I try to let that bullshit bounce off

    so you're one of those fucking idiots with the duffle bag full of shit walking up into places asking if they want to buy an alarm clock. wow. i hate people like you. you're always interrupting peoples lives, trying to sell em some bullshit they dont need, then you get mad when people dont wanna be bothered. i had a motherfucker trying to sell me picasso paintings last week. dude wouldnt just accept 'no'. if fools that do your job were really good at talking, they'd be selling something alot more lucrative than rubber duckies and sunglasses.

    maybe you personally are alright, but from my experience, fools that do your job are pretty much out of work carnies. good luck getting into heaven with a rep like that shit.
