Sometimes I wonder why I haven't been fired...

Me: Hello, how can I help you?
Customer (lady in mid-forties): Oh, I need to return these books. The lady I got them for received two other sets of the trilogy.
Me: Not a problem. *start scanning receipt*
Customer: I also want to return the plastic bag. I know it's only five cents, but it's the principle of it.
Me: *funny look that says "Who ARE you?" and also "WHAT PRINCIPLES?"* You didn't even pay for it though. *show her the screen and scanned in items*
Customer: I paid for it after.
Me: I'm sorry, you want me to find a way to return a five cent plastic bag that you used and have no evidence of paying for?
Customer: Yes.
Me: Alright, since I can't actually physically return the bag, would you like the contact information for the charity the five cents went to? Maybe they'll return your five cents.
Customer: *awkward pause* Well, in a couple of months we won't have this issue.
Me: Yep, no plastic bags for you then. Please sign your return receipt.
Customer: *ashamed look*
-I probably should've just grabbed five cents from my wallet and given it to her. Although I'm pretty sure she DIDN'T need it. Sometimes the attitude of a customer really ticks me off though. Like I'm responsible for all the misery in the world so I get defensive.

A sample from An Evening with Amanda Palmer and Neil Gaiman. Definitely my favourite little story. It is called The Day the Saucers Came.

99 Problems and Small Tits Ain’t One

A collaboration between my bff and myself. Inspired by this. We will be listing 99 problems busty women face (in no particular order).

4. The Boob Brush. A common “klutzy” factor in which you forget that your boobs are actually attached to your body and tend to rub up against anything unmoving or moving.

Every time I eliminate an insect, I am either humming or singing this, under my breath.

Sometimes I think of really witty blog posts in the shower, but then I forget all about them by the time I get out.

I have only ever READ this word because, let’s be honest, who would us this aloud in a sentence? Anyway, I only just discovered it’s pronunciation. I still think it sounds wrong the correct way. I prefer my simplistic ah-gape versus ah-GAH-pay. What the hell, right?  *
*I found that apparently this odd bird of a word has two uses, which makes more sense in that I’ve only ever read it used the other way.

That triumphant moment when you are able to scan a barcode/SKU/UPC code/ISBN number that is under the wrinkle of shrink wrap. 

You cannot defeat me, shrink wrap.

When the shower water is so hot it feels cold. :| I want to be a lobster not a penguin.

Round and Round We Go

I just noticed that I’m picky about the shape of things I eat. I didn’t realize it until I looked at a square dice of potato and the round one…I went for the round ones. I actually even prefer round ice…spheres(?), rather than cubes. Apples are my favourite fruit. Even bread! I used to make tubby toast, just so it could be round. Smile fries. I like those round cough drops, not Halls. Button-shaped mushrooms are my favourite. :D

I think my preference for circular-like things extends beyond food though. Hobbit holes. I love them. I love when owls looks round and fluffy! :3 I also wish my car was an orb. And keyboard keys should be rounded to fit my fingertips. I’d rather sit on a round seat/stool, rather than something square. I’m sure there’s more…


Exceptions to my round rule: Spoons-I hate them. I do like sporks, however. Also, Tomatoes can suck it. No round beds. D: They don’t fit in rooms properly or they have to stay in the same spot forever. Books—I don’t think I could handle holding a round book.
