You think that hating high school makes you cool. Or saying that everyone else sucks makes you any better. But it just makes you look like an ass.

Because, dear customer, it’s not necessary to launch into a long, meandering, repetitive, stream-of-consciousness monologue about your problem when all of the information I need to help you was contained in your initial question and I cannot give you the help you’re requesting unless JUST STOP TALKING for two seconds so I can tell you what you need.
Real life example:
Customer: Can you help me find a good fabric for this quilt I’m going to make?
Me: *inhales to answer customer*
Customer: Because I’m going to be making this for somebody who’s graduating and I’d like it in green because they like green, although blue is also good. I kind of want a floral kind of pattern in one of these calicoes, although flannel is also okay. But I need to get started on it so I can make it in time for the person’s graduation. And I’m hoping I can find a nice floral calico in a green they like. But blue is okay too, and so is flannel. But I really need to get started on it because quilts take time and I want to get this done in time for their graduation party. I’m just hoping I can find a nice green calico for this project, although blue and flannel are also okay…
Me: *drowning in the unending flow of the customer’s words*

Anymore, I’ll just find a good place to interrupt the customer and answer their question because a) I don’t have time to be held captive for 5/10/∞ minutes while they work out their train of thought (I do have other work I have to do) and b) uh, they do want their question answered, right?
TL;DR: If you want somebody to answer your question, just shut up for a few seconds so they can actually give you an answer.

It’s hard for me to do this. You make promise you won’t keep;  things like”oh I’ll text you tonight,” and I know you won’t keep them, but it doesn’t stop it from hurting each time a promise is broken. It’s not easy to always be alone with your thoughts. I’m constantly thinking about horrible accidents, thinking you didn’t text back because you got in a car accident, or that tomorrow when I make that turn at the top of a hill to work a car will come barreling into me.  Thinking out what I would have to do if I broke my leg, would I still be able to work? Thinking that if something should happen to you who could I call to cover my shift at work, so I could help you through it. It’s not easy having those thoughts every minute of everyday. It doesn’t make it easier when you ignore me, or lie to me. 

Sometimes I think of myself as broken, and thats the scariest thought of all, because you’ve been scared away before, and everytime we fight you go to Her, and for you to runaway because I’m broken to her would kill me. You are broken, and I do everything to help, to help you cope, recover, become okay with you. But you choose to runaway from me, and that’s the thing that hurts the most.
