I'm a twenty year old free spirit who's trying to keep a track of her life just to observe what kind of a person I am. I'm vulgar from time to time, But really isn't everyone? My frustration level is always close to boiling point, and my patience, well, let's just say, I do need to keep that in check. I'm a girl with Hawaiian hips and Japanese humor. So, ladies and gentlemen, bear with me and do attempt to enjoy my nonsense-d key bashing that I call a blog.

Work is... interesting.
Working in retail really widens your perspective on the world because of the wide variety of people that comes in. From people who think they'll get a discount if they barter with us to people who are just way too young and spoiled to be even allowed in the store. Yes, interesting mix of people like to visit our store, and the most memorable moments are those where you're just head-desking.
Let's do a little recap of customers that I've encountered in the past.
Micro Mini dogs are SO in right now. And we have people who bring in their cute little puppies who sit in their purse or stroller being the cute, quiet puppies they are. Minding their own business, and not really causing much of a problem to anyone. I AM in fact an animal lover, and I deeply understand the want and need to show off your pets (because I know I show pictures of my cat to ANYONE who stands still long enough), but what's really the line that should be drawn here? How big should be the dog that you take with you to go shopping? Service dogs are one thing but a Chow Chow?
As cute and lion like he was, Chow Chows are very BIG. That is a one big ball of fur. A DOG is one thing, but what other pets could you take to shop with you? A rabbit? A Goldfish? But as Patti Page says, you can't take a goldfish for a walk. How about a parrot?
Yes, you heard me correct. A Parrot. Some lady, a couple of months ago brought her parrot with her. And this parrot had bird turrets. Not with human words, but with squawks. I'm not sure if you guys have ever seen the movie Paulie...
but, if it was Paulie coming into the store having his turrets, I'd be ecstatic, but alas, 'twas not. It was only a badly trained parrot with turrets, and the only thing its' owner tried to do was turn to it and go "shhhhh". It's a damn bird, lady.
Children seem to be some people's accessories as well. And we have some ADORABLE babies who come in. Little heart breakers. But one thing I hate more than anything is when parents neglect their children when they're shopping, especially if your child has a mild to sever case of ADD, because let's face it, most children are like that. Because some parents are so busy being in their own world looking at which purse to buy, these little children have their own ideas of fun - Ransacking the store. And only when something in our display some where goes SLAM, BAM, WHAM do they realize that their children aren't where they last left them. So here we are, sales associates, baby sitting their children and making sure that they're not walking out of the doors.
Okay, cute babies are one thing, but what about overly spoiled pre-teens? And what is it with them being sluttier than ever now? I saw a group of girls with their parents come in. The girls looked around eleven (but everyone looks eleven to me if they're younger) and they were wearing micro mini short shorts with a tiny shirt that showed off their stomach. Really? You're, what? Ten? Why are we being so slutty? I mean, I know it's hot, Jesus Christ, but put a shirt on that fits you.
Overall, I think people are interesting, and it's so much fun people watching at our store, it really is a great way to pass the time.
I almost forgot, it's fourth of July Weekend. What is everyone's plans? (Somebody....? Anybody....?)
