put it where it doesn't belong

there's no other way to say it, my day at the SS has been a fucking mess. i'm brutally bored, my blood is up and i'm on the verge of blowing my promising career in giftware to smithereens.

fortunately this furrow browed, death inducing day has not been without humor. five minutes ago, while i was puzzling over a stack of long-ignored invoices, i heard patty smith, my sweet, slot machine lovin', 65 year old co-worker, matter-of-factly repeating the following titles to a customer:

"want a whipping?

clean clothes, dirty mind.

want to get lucky?

thanks for making me stretch.

you and wine are best drunk."

after she completed her list, i about shit. i had no idea that we had decided to carry the "hustler home accents" line.

If it makes you feel any better, I just spent 11 hours managing a section of a warehouse sale.....

Following Ali's lead...
If it makes you feel any better, at 6am this morning I chopped product out of a 1000 gallon centrifuge with a paddle.

oh and we're hiring...

thanks for stopping by, ali and ahbahsean. i try to keep myself constantly aware of those who share my struggles. on my better days, this solidarity strengthens my resolve. on my worst days, well, i'd like to tell you what i feel tempted to do, but i won't. let's just say that if i acted on impulse during my worst days people like krista would be bookin' it for their hidee holes: )

I see nothing wrong with having hiding places in case someone decides to go high school (formally known as "go postal") at any place I am employed at. And no, I'm STILL not going to divulge where I would go to hide in case of such an event.

She'd probably just run over and hide under my desk!

Nope, your desk is way too open, can be seen from the internet marketing department. Nope, I have better places.

I'd just lock myself in the CI studio in the back room. It's nice to be the one with the keys sometimes! :-)
