Why I hate my job and being alone

Just had a customer in here okay? At 1:18, he asked about storage, took him out and showed him the storage size he wanted. Came back in, had him fill out some paperwork, normally takes a person 5-10 minutes total and me 5 mintues to get everything done, they leave.
HE WAS HERE UNTIL 2:14!!That is almost an hour, why? Well, just a run down in matter of fact phrasing from his mouth.
1. When God comes down in a spaceship, will we believe he is God?
2. Mary's pregnancy was artificial insemination, not emaculate conseption.
3. His daugther was harassed by a cable guy, got him fired and he is stocking her.
4. The bible is full of lies.
5. The earth is going to be on fire in a few years.
6. Terrorist are everywhere, you can't trust anyone.
7. There are angels walking around in human form and if you anger them, that is how people die.
I won't say anymore, but, let me tell you, it went on and on, to the point of freaking me completely out!!!
This is why I don't like my job and being alone here.

If he comes back....show him the room! (again) When he gets inside shut the door and lock him up!! A real nut case that needs to be in storage!!!

Seriously...next time...excuse yourself, and step into another room to call someone...The Police??

Stay safe!!

DANG IT, can't give either of you any karma, gotta spread it around more first.
OMG, my stomach hurts soooo badly right now!! You two!! Thank you, needed that so much!!
Don't worry, I have scissors beside me waiting if I need them. I'm not able to walk away, this is a 30'x30' room with a closet and restroom, that's it. My counter is the only place there is a phone and I dont' have a cell. I'll be okay. I already told my boss that I was looking for another job. They are trying very hard to keep me, but, after today, the only way I will stay is if he can garauntee that I won't ever be alone and that isn't going to happen.

If the boss wants to keep you that bad, make him provide you a cell phone, or at least a portable phone you can walk away from the desk with. A lady always can excuse herself to "powder her nose"










PS. ...And lock the door!!

They should have a panic button installed. I was a bookkeeper once, in a paint manufacturing plant near a bad neighborhood and I had a panic button under the desk. Press that and the police would show up within a couple of minutes. I'd insist on it, before something happens and you sue him up the wazoo.

Hadn't thought of that one. Will tell him about that too.

We have a mandatory meeting next week and I'm going to be telling him about this some more and give him these suggestions.
Even the angel wings BT


Also, I know a lot of people are wondering why I didn't just tell him to leave. I'm more scared of that reaction that crazy talk. I also have IM's with my other two facilties that are run by women also. That way, if there is an iffy situation, we tell each other what is going on. I've even gone as far as entering a make and model of a truck and license plate number and a description of a guy that had me on edge once on my IM for one of them to call the cops if I don't call her or type to her that he was gone.

Not all nuts come in shells - some come in pickups or cars!
