Today was my Tuesday. It wasn't too bad. Not too many of the customers made me want to kill them. The only exception being the fucking yuppie couple that couldn't read.
I have three signs up telling people if they would like to see the nice oversized art books on top of the selves, to please ask for assistance. I'm really uptight about the dust jackets on these books getting messed up, and people reaching totally over their head to put the book back will fuck it up. They took a book down themselves and looked perturbed when I asked them to give the book to me when they we're done with it. After this I put up a forth sign saying "no really, we insist. please ask for assistance with the oversized books".
What are worse are the people who will look at a $40+ hardcover book and let the cover droop down. I wince and yell at them about this. It will break the binding.
But anyway, enough of me going off about something nobody ever thinks about. I tend to do that a lot.
I wish Ron and John would send me and Mateo out on a buying trip. It's lots of work but I'd love it. I'd get paid for not being at the store for once.
lol, we're sending alyssa some money so she can buy him a wal-mart gift card, i find it hilarious.
but its not worth getting him anything else, since he doesn't even have a home, he just lives in his truck.
back then, i was an angsty teen. i spent everyday wishing i was back in Green Bay, Wi. nowadays i'm just spoiled by living in cities that have a night life or life in general. if i remember right, downtown Ft Wayne is completely closed by 5pm.
i do remember it showing some attempts at life when a little independant record shop opened across from the downtown library. i don't remember it's name.
i remember there is a little bar strip that's about a block or two long downtown.
the last time i was there for any length of time, my ex and i would buy alcohol and and drink on the platforms at the old train station. we'd also walk the tracks to get downtown from my mom's neighborhood up by the old International Harvester factory.
currently i like to go to clubs that play decent music. the more current electro/industrial the better. i like to dance and drink...or sit home on the computer.
