Beware... rant ahead...

As most of you probably already know, the company I work for is closing. All of it's locations nationwide are shutting its doors at the end of the month.
I feel like such a horrible, horrible person but I'm so sick of people coming in here and asking me questions.
The worst is when they walk in and see my two fixtures of merchandise and little bit of stuff on the walls and ask "Are you closing?" I want to look at them and say "Are you serious? No, we're just low on stock." The sarcastic b*tch in me really wants to come out and bite their head off. I hold restraint though and try to change the subject.
I'm almost to a breaking point though. If one more person asks me "WHY?" I'm going to freak out at them and tell them to go home and Google it if they're that interested. Why the H do you think we're closing??? Because we're so profitable we've made too much money we have to shut down?????
I know I probably sound like a complete snob, but I'm so passionate about this company and love it so much it's like stabbing me with a knife and twisting it everytime I have to answer these heartbreaking questions.

Thanks Lesli! I can't wait to get started on Jen Lancaster's books! Her sense of humor sounds like just what I need right now ;)
