I'm a smoker, and on foodstamps. And let me tell you, I would DEFINITELY but the cigarettes. You can beg food, you can go to soup kitchens, you can go to friend's... But without that nicotine, you become A BITCH, and quick. Smokes > Food (I've gone days without food just so I could have my smokes... literally, days.)

She was a big, scary, violent girl that I did not like to anger. I am no longer friends with her, for many reasons like that. If I had said anything, nothing would have changed except that I also would have been yelled at, then forced to apologize for "going against Homies"..... whatever.

That's horrible. It's not only disrespectful to those at the place of business, but shows that these people don't care about the state of the planet. Is the Go Green movement over already? Are we done trying to save the planet? It looks like we're all going to die of severe toxicity of the air and water because of schmucks that do stupid shit like that.

Good luck with the interviews! So sorry for the mental image that i'm sure is burned into your Retina's for years to come! Fudge, if you find eyeball bleach, let us all know, teehee!

PERFECT story to read when I just woke up... I got my new boo drunk last night, but he just puked everywhere and wanted sex. This is much funnier. I don't know what I would have said if he just walked into a store I was working at like that. Probably gawked, then cracked up.

Guys, folding the shirts are SUPEREASY. Lay it on it's front. Fold the shirt halfway between the collar and the seam for the sleeve. Repeat for other side. Make sure it is straight all the way down and the sleeves, if it short, do not touch (women's) or barely overlap (men's)... For LONG sleeves it's a bit harder, but not much. Then you fold it in thirds. Also, i've NEVER folded for a store (we hung everything, shelves were for shoes and purses). I simply fold my clothing the same way (and have since I was 9)... (Although I ALWAYS have to redo it if my grandmother folds... She folds differently)

my grandmother is weird with the credit swipers she does it the right way, but even though she ALWAYS HAS TO PRESS OKAY at EVERY store we go to and she's used them for YEARS, she ALWAYS swipes and says, "Do I press Okay, or Back?" -cue brain explosion- I've given up. I hate shopping with her.

I used to play video games all day while my parents shopped, but thankfully for the retail slaves, I always threw a tantrum until my parents bought me like, THE most expensive game in the store xD I was there too long and annoyed the shit out of them (I was DEFINITELY a hellspawn, no two ways around that...), but they got their sale.

convince customers to complain formally if bothered. don't say, "hey that chick sucks, complain about her", but if you see they're upset, say "i'm really sorry about her, i keep complaining but they only listen to customers here, not employees..." and hopefully they'll decide to complain about her. ~sub shop slut

Agreeing with Kat on the lawyer bit. That is SUCH bullshit. I would be PISSED. Family IS more important! If I was a boss / manager / supervisor person, I would hear that and go "D; omg you poor thing! Take as much time as you need, you don't want to regret not seeing him when you could have if he goes. Do you need a hug?? ):"

I love using the Self-Checkout as i've been in retail and don't do stupid shit like that. I know how to weigh by volume or item, I know how to key in codes, I know how to turn the volume down, I know how to keep it clean. I use the self-checkout so I don't have to wait in line behind custys and crustys all damn day, listening to them argue the price of ham. I have had to deal with idiots all my life, but i'm certainly not doing it when i'm not getting paid for it!
