Tuesday, July 29


Since I haven't updated in a while I thought I would fill you all in on the wonders and marvels of working retail. So without much further ado, I give you the "Quote of the week":

"Who wrote Dante's Inferno?"

Thank you. Now as a special side we also have the most vague question ofthe week. This is a feature where we compile all the questions I have gotten over the course of the week and decide which of them is the most vague. This weeks winner goes to a Jr. Higher who asked me, "Where do you keep your books on the future?"

Some countries require that when you turn 18 you must up and join the military for 2 years. In the U.S. I think we should do something like that, only make it that once you get a credit card you are supposed to serve 2 years in retail. That'll teach 'em.

I must admit however that all these crazy questions from customers have given me great things to ask at Borders the next time I am in there. *evil chuckle*. I have to admit that is a great passtime. I don't know if they get stupid questions over there, but I feel the need to share with them.

Another thought for you from my standing at the information booth all night tonight: Does anyone know where the term of endearment "pumpkin" came from? "Come on pumpkin" "Love you Pumpkin" I mean, does anyone realize they are calling the other person a big fat orange squash? If anyone can track down the history of that I would love to see it. (Why don't we say something else? IE: "Come on my little qumquat!" or "I love you my little aphis gossypi!"

Anyway, those are my thoughts, and now I am to bed. I wish you all a good night and I hope that the morning finds you well!
