Hi y'all, Sometimes, I wonder if I am being paranoid but it seems as if strangers that I have to interact with throughout the day are abnormally aggressive towards me for no reason. Maybe it has to do with the place I live (mostly Germanic culture). My two latest examples: I go to the hairdresser without an appointment really early in the morning "Yes?" she asks. "I'd like to get a haircut" I reply. "You're going to have to wait... These people were here before you..." she says with a really bored and annoyed tone. I mean, first of all I'm a guy with no beard, so if I show up it's because I need a haircut, not an extension. Secondly, it's obvious if I come without an appointment and people are already there or have an appointment they'll go first. Why do they need to be rude? I'm always trying to be pleasant and that's how I get treated quite a lot. Second example: I go to a kebab and there are a bunch of people there who look like they're having a good time. I go order a "kebab menu", which is a standard formula where I live meaning kebab+fries+drink. The guy aggressively answers "we don't have menus, we have kebab and fries and drinks". I'm like "yea that's exactly what I want" (at this point I was thinking what the fuck is up with that guy, he says he doesnt do menus but he then says he does but just doesn't want to call it that way). He looks pissed off and asks me to wait and takes an order of a dude that just came after me. Then he started preparing a take out bag without even asking if I wanted to eat in. So I insisted I wanted to eat in and he just still gave me his trashy take out bag instead of serving my food on a goddamn plate. To top it all he told me I have to pay once I'm done eating (this is usual in kebabs) but when I insisted that I wanted to pay right now he got even more pissed off. This happens a lot to me. And I am starting to think that the problem comes from me. People often say I look "too serious" (whatever that means). But in reality I am really trying hard to be pleasant with everybody and especially strangers. And in my examples, I am the goddamn CLIENT. Everytime it happens I really try to keep cool and carry on but it's really hard. I just want to put those sons of B back to their place.
