How are we still trying to say rape is the result of uncontrollable sexual desire when men are out here THREATENING to rape women they feel intimidated by?

Met my boss for the first time, yesterday. He seems pretty cool. We commiserated about our mothers judging us for having gauges and always thinking the gauges are bigger than they actually are. Also, I may have volunteered as a trainer for my department.


Welcome to Nightvale


Welcome to Nightvale


Gentle reminder to all those who have never worked in retail - Just because you disagree with a company policy don’t take it out on the employee serving you, they more than likely had nothing to do with the policy and all you’re doing is making them hate their job more than before.


We hate you because your ability to read and understand signs disappear when you walk into our store.


If you ever think your parents are too hard on you just remember that Mufasa materialized as a cloud to tell Simba to get his shit together.

Apparently it’s not socially acceptable for a man to invite another man out just for coffee or to go out for a meal, in case it’s perceived as a date. Like it’s fine if you wanna go to the pub and drink beer and have a chat but make it non-alcoholic and suddenly you’re not straight anymore? You can go to the cinema together but ONLY if it’s an action movie. You guys can’t even just go shopping with each other. Oh masculinity, so fragile, so strange.

When a guest starts yelling at me just for the sake of yelling…

Don’t Steal, We Catch You!


I was looking through that shoplifting blog…and while I do find it very stupid and criminal…I do find some sort of pride in the fact that they are saying “DO NOT STEAL FROM TARGET! YOU WILL GET CAUGHT!!”

TBR: Well I’m glad they know not to mess with us! 

My location is going to be averaging 9 trucks a week after next week to get ready to open, we still need to hire 100+ people before opening, I’m the only person in hardlines who has turned up for training, and the only other people with open availability besides myself are Jester from flow and Vet (who neither Jester nor I will allow to do heavy lifting because she’s a sweet little grandmother type). And once we open, it’s fourth quarter/Halloween/the holiday rush and I work full time. What have I gotten myself into?!

I was thinking about how The Duck Song by Bryant Oden is a perfect example of what it's like to work in retail.



… it’s perfect

the face of retail


We hate you because instead of handing us the items you don’t want you leave them at the end of the conveyor belt

Argh, distribution center didn’t put team lift stickers on the Monday truck’s furniture and I got assigned the furniture pallets when helping flow, so now my back is screwed up.for the time being. Some of those boxes were easily taller and heavier than myself.
