You would have to be a complete moron not to realize that this is a big deal. Not to everyone, of course, but there are some people who have been waiting 2, 5, 10 years for this last book and who are really excited that it is coming out. I mean, what kind of person would just tell someone the end of a movie without asking first "were you planning on seeing it, or can I tell you how it ends?" No one, because no one would be that stupid. Just like no one should be so stupid as to blurt out a spoiler for Harry Potter that they heard about without asking "are you going to read it or can I tell you who dies at the end?" But apparently my manager is just that plain dumb.
So she calls me over as she's talking to another manager and says, "Lisa, come here, you have to hear this story. *Insert story about some Border's workers who filmed themselves reading the last chapter and put it on YouTube* So, anyway, just so you know, *two characters* die."
"*Blink* You're kidding me?"
"I can't believe you just did that." And then I proceed to get really, really angry. I don't think she understood how upset I was and what she just had done. She apologized, but I just looked at her like "are you kidding?" and stormed to the front of the store, where she followed me and apologized again. I don't even remember what I told her except that I wasn't about to say "okay, no big deal, whatever" since it was a huge deal. I was so angry that I was shaking, and I wanted to hit her/punch something/throw things. I did throw around the empty box when I finished. She's like, "you need to calm down, there are customers" but I almost walked out of the store. Me, the person with the biggest work ethic I know, almost walked out on the job. So, a few hours later, after I calm down and pretty much have convinced myself that she hadn't done it maliciously, and that even though her source sounded accurate, it could still be wrong, and even if it was right, I was still going to enjoy reading the book and seeing the course it takes to get to the end. So, I told her that I forgave her, although it was pretty stupid. You know what she said to me? "You know what, Lisa, I'm over it. Cause I apologized and you acted like a child, so whatever."
*Blink* You're over it? You're over it? You're fucking over it? Oh, good, cause I was worried that you were still upset over the fact that you fucking ruined the ending of a book I've been waiting about 4 years to read. But I'm glad that you're over it. So it was a good thing I was leaving work at that point, because I got really angry again after that. I can't believe that she had the nerve to say "I'm over it." And you know what, maybe I was acting a little childish, but she is still fucking stupid to not understand what she did and how big a deal it is. Fucking stupid.
So, I'm not really angry anymore, I'm more apathetic, unless I think about it too long, then the hate starts coming back. I'm not even sure I'm going to go pick up the book at midnight anymore, though. It's really fairly depressing. I sincerely hope that no one else is spoiled by a fucking moron until you have read it.
