Words from the not so wise
You know sometimes you’ve just gotta take that adorning mirror and put it away and then try someone else’s for size. That adorning mirror that you’ve made yourself comfortable in can change in the blink of an eye. These ephemerally perfect perfections that you’ve come to know and love in the spirit of your own eyes have now become skewed and unravelled under the lens of...
Minimum Wage Memoirs: Rules For Approaching My... →
minimumwagememoirs: 1. Hand me your money, don’t slap it onto the counter. If you throw it onto the counter I will stare at it until you pick it up and hand it to me like a normal person. If I have to pick it up myself, I will throw your change at you at the speed of light. It will go right through you. 2….
Socially Awkward: Customer Service →
revbigbabyhuey: One day, I had a customer tell me I should be fired. This is why retail has become the sack of A$$holes to work in that it has. I was trying to do my job the right way and prevent the product he wanted from being smashed to pieces trying to bring it down off the top shelf manually. What he saw was… AMEN. The customer is almost NEVER right.
Very few of us are born with the ambition to end up as a retail runt perpetually working the cyclic grunt just to get ourselves through life without having to resort to the dole and becoming just another dole bludger. Yet many of us begin our careers at some point in some form of retail/customer service role. Yet when we look at the way that people treat retail staff it honestly beckons me to...

Please, I never want to ever experience what many people have gone through today. As someone verging on 21 it occurs to me that I particularly don’t enjoy the sight of blood in photos. It’s one thing to talk about ‘bloodshed’ like it’s just another aspect of carnage…. but to actually see it happen right in front of you…. I just wouldn’t be able to...

britishwesleysnipes: experiminh: britishwesleysnipes: Apologies for generalizations, but I am SO tired of uptight Christians. Especially working in such close proximity to them.

Minh Minh woah... Double Chin.
I by no means expect anyone following to actually read this, but I’d like to add a theme to this blog on my quest for general well being and hopeful weight loss. For years I’ve pretty much been in Egypt (De Nile) about my weight, and when someone calls me chubby I’ve pretty much reconfigured that to be ‘cute’ in my head. However, the hoodies, loose button up shirts...

I’m not quite sure if this aspect of ‘social equality’ in the academic world has been touched on before, but in this world of the internet my 2c is just as valuable as anyone else’s’. Sometimes it just seems to me like in the world of scholars there seems to be an uncertainty when making generalisations and the incessant need to link them to men or women and further...

eyesayuhh: Tonight at work I was able to help a couple, man woman (and their infant), find a dress for the man, Joseph. I work in retail for 2 years now and I can honestly say this is the best customer service experience I’ve ever had. It began when I was returning a dress for a couple, maybe mid to late…

Before Sunset (2005) - Reality and Love
You know what? Reality and love are almost contradictory for me. It's funny... Every single of my ex-es... they're now married! Men go out with me, we break up, and then they get married! And later they call me to thank me for teaching them what love is, and... that I taught them to care and respect women!
I think I'm one of those guys.
You know, I want to kill them! Why didn't they ask me to marry them? I would have said "No", but at least they could have asked!!! But it's my fault, I know that it's my fault, because... I never felt it was the right man. Never! But what does it mean the right man? The love of your life? The concept is absurd, the idea that we can only be complete with another person is...EVIL! Right?
