The fact that most of the employees at my store are actually college students who will eventually become computer techs, social workers, or business...

It was my friend's birthday, and I met one of her favorite musicians (Jonathan Richman) and had him call her and sing happy birthday. Then I remembered that another friend's birthday was the next day, so he was called and sung to as well. Too bad that's not actually going to happen this August. That...

When you're in retail, no customer criticises you for working until 7p.m. Christmas Eve or getting to work at 7a.m. the day after Christmas. They wanted us to be open for Easter once. I'm glad I quit retail. It must be nice in your area. I was yelled at yesterday, hence my original irritated post i...

Even though the weight loss thing has been cited a few times, I've actually seen a study (okay, so it was an article in Seventeen!, but they generally provide outside info and are very helpful at times) that says smoking actually leads to weight gain . See, the theory is that since you have decrease...

Bad thing: I was attacked by a raptor today. No, seriously.
Great thing: Okay, so it wasn't a raptor. It was a hyper coworker. But she definitely said "RAWR! I'm a raptor!" before swiping at me with her claws...er...hands.
