I used to be one of those people who thought there was no such as thing as "internet friends." I honestly thought that people who made friends online didn't have lives or were talking to a complete and random stranger who was going to hurt them or something! And then a little less than two years ago I make a friend on AHS (Ayumi Hamasaki forum). I saw someone, whose name was Angel Senshi, had their location as Malta. I had a song by this woman from Malta and I decided to randomly message this girl and talk to her about it. I never imagined we would actually remain friends but...two years later here we are. She means the world to me and I consider her one, if not THE closest friend I have. My best friend is someone I met on the internet.
Fast forward to the now and I actually have a few more friends I met online. This girl commented on a Hetalia 30 day challenge thing I did on LJ and told me to join tumblr. Well...for some reason I did it haha! We don't talk a whole lot honestly but I still consider her a friend. Her online name is Lemurturtle and her real name is Kayla.
The next girl I met is a fan of Kaori Yuki. She noticed I posted a lot of Kaori Yuki stuff on my tumblr so she followed me and I followed her back. She's actually a Cassian/Lucille cosplayer haha. She's a good friend and we even exchanged phone numbers. I don't agree with her ideas about love though, but that's part of a friendship - having differences. I hope she eventually learns to move on though. I call her either Cass or Lucille but her real name is Rachel.
And last but not least is another big Hetalia fan. This girl was really random hahah. She messaged me on tumblr one day and asked me to listen to the plot of her story. Oddly enough I did and we've been friends since. We get along really well and we enjoy talking about our favorite Hetalia pairings. The great thing about it is we don't have similar tastes in pairings so it's fun to discuss them! She got me into France/China haha. Though America/China will always be my number 1!!! We talk about a lot of other things too. It's pretty awesome. ^_^ Her online is Seiferre and I have no idea if that's her real name or not. That's what I know her as.
Althought, my bestest friend will always be MK. I know for a fact our relationship will never die. We would do anything for each other. These other online friends may leave me behind one day but MK will always be by my side...even if we are an ocean apart ^_^
Just ranting a bit. It seems to be the only thing I use this journal for.
I need someone to tell me it's okay haha. Like serious. Someone help me out here!
So the situation....*sigh* Here we go.
I work in retail. My job is to sell stuff. It's what I do. It's how I do. I sell stuff.
I get regulars sometimes and I don't always know their names and sometimes I do. This particular regular I didn't know his name but he was a cool guy. I was fine with him and he was fine with me. So one day he walks in my manager tries to sell him something that was the same thing he was looking for but it was a better deal. I make a point to not try to oversell people on stuff. I'll only try to convince them to buy something if I truly think they would be getting a better deal with what I want them to have.
So my manager tries to sell the guy this thing and he doesn't want. It absolutely didn't want it. My manager had me come over and explain to guy again why he should get what my manager was trying to push because it was a better deal. So I explained to him again why it was better than what he was trying to get. He still didn't want it. My manager kept pushing him to get the other deal though and I was reiterated that he would be saving money blah blah blah. Guy eventually broke down and got it.
He didn't seem like he was getting aggravated with my manager and me so I didn't think of it. Then a few days later one of my co-workers tell me I bothered his cousin about buying something. It took me a while to remember what it was but then I found out it was that same guy. I had no idea this guy was my co-worker's cousin and I also didn't know he was so upset that we tried to sell him that thing. He just didn't seem aggravated or annoyed so I didn't think anything of it. Apparently he was really angry about it though.
Even though I barely know the guy it's really been bothering me for some reason. I don't know why! I think it's because it was my co-worker's cousin. I know I'm at fault cause people hate those sales people who try to oversell things, but I try so hard not to do that and I didn't feel like I was doing it with his guy. I guess I'm starting to fall into the "salesperson" persona and not even realizing it. I just don't feel like this should bother me so much cause I also don't feel like it was so much of a big deal. I mean if a salesperson tried to oversell me something I personally wouldn't get so angry about it, but then again that's just me! *sigh*
I dunno. Just another hump in life I guess.
Has anyone ever noticed how a lot of times strangers online are really bitchy and mean? And you just know that in real life they don't have the guts to say half the things they say online. Online people can't see your face, they don't know your name, they don't know who you are so suddenly that makes it perfectly okay to be a jerk? People do it to celebrities all the time, but they don't have any qualms about doing it to other normal people you meet on forums or something.
I had to stand up for this girl on tumblr from one of those people. It really, really sucks!
Like, you're being genuine and whether you have to apologize to one of these online people for something or are just having a normal conversation and you disagree with something they say then they get all up in arms about it and throw a hissyfit and start saying shit and you're just like "....unnecessary much...."
Just ranting though. I don't do it often but this needs to be heard. If you're one of these people, chill the hell out. There's no reason to try and be all big and bad just because people don't know who you are. That is NOT how you make internet friends....
