Wasn’t in a great mood tonight when I got in to work. Really didn’t want to talk to anyone and people kept following me around wherever I went before the shift started. I tend to get waspish when I don’t want to talk to people, and really everyone is better off if they just leave me alone. I’m not looking to be cheered up when I’m like that. I guess hyperactive trying-to-be-cheerful people just don’t get that.
A woman fell at my position tonight at the end of the show. She couldn’t hear me over the insanely loud music that plays as people are leaving, and she apparently wasn’t watching where she was going and completely missed the flashlight-lit-up step I was pointing at and trying to tell people to notice. I felt bad for her, she was really annoyed at having fallen. She told me she wasn’t hurt, and got up fine and went on her way.
Oh, and speaking of insanely loud music, I’ve noticed when I’m lying in bed at night I can hear a high-pitched ringing in my left ear. Now, I don’t know if I have hearing damage (oh wouldn’t that be fantastic) or if it’s just that occasional ear-ringing when I’m in a silent room thing I used to get when I was younger. I’m hoping it’s the latter. Ear damage can’t be fixed. And yes, I wear earplugs every night at work, to hell with what patrons might think if they notice.
