Scattered Thoughts: Produced by frustration

I had another post earlier, but the formatting nearly killed me. So, for lack of any more brain cells to put together something coherent, another Scattered Thoughts.
  • I had my second day of training at National Department Store (NDS), which focused primarily on an unintentionally hilarious workplace harassment video focused on "sweater puppies" and drunk Irish jokes. Then I learned about how you have to "give the customer the pickle." Retail is weird.
  • While taking the bathroom trashcan out to the curb tonight, the wind caught a pantyliner wrapper and blew it down the street. I had to chase it, which didn't help my self-esteem.
  • I found my parakeet asleep on her side the other day. Thought she was dead for a second, then she sat up and looked at me like I was doing something unnatural.
  • Another weird thing-- I saw a chipmunk eating a worm. What the hell is up with that?!
  • No news on the career front. I've been told that I just have to keep going, which is obviously true. After all, I don't want to be stuck at my parents' house forever. But throw me a bone, people! I'll work for peanuts!


  1. Ugh I hate retail. I am sorry you are being subjugated to that :( I was jubilant to get out of waitressing again this summer...

    and I have to agree... keep plowing along!! :) I BELIEVE IN YOU!!!

  2. abz: It hasn't been bad so far-- just far beyond my realm of experience. Should make for some interesting writing.

    Aww, and thanks!
