employee of the month



So. yet again, my scintillating Friday night was spent in a Big Lots.


Anyway, not once, but twice, I got this question:

"Excuse me, sir, do you work here?"

"Oh, no," I smiled...thinking all the while,
"Excuse me bitch, do I look that white trash?"

(don't answer that)

I get that all the time.

Perhaps they think we are the Big Lots' Elves.

That are we truly are that white trash.

The same annoying thing used to happen to me, but I caution you Jason, be grateful for what you have. They recently closed the Hollywood Big Lots!

My Friday nights now belong, exclusively, to Turner Classic Movies.

When I go to the Big Lots in my neighborhood, I'm not just the only white trash person there I'm the only white person there. Which is sort of cool.

Jason dear, do I hear you humming "Halfbreed" over there?

Oh, damn! This is too funny. Reminds me of when I did seasonal work at a Big Lots when I was in high school.

I think we both share the same kind of humorous/snarky view of the world!
