I hate it when you finally get a nice phone that has a full-on QWERTY keyboard and whatnot, you're absolutely sick of texting. And It's true. I'm so tired of my phone vibrating and people texting me over and over if I don't reply quickly enough or just all-out ignore their texts.
Have you ever had an awkward stare moment when out shopping alone or with family members? Like, as an example, today I was out at the store with my mother, brother, and grandmother, and was paying for my items at the checkout and the clearly old, old, extremely old cashier was staring at me with the oddest leer I've ever seen, and said, "I like your hat."
Yes, I quite like my ushanka myself, but please don't stare. I felt as if It was a) I had been eye-raped, or b) I had something in my teeth, cos being the polite turd that I am, continuously returned his leer with an awkward, twitchy smile of my own.
Plus, who enjoys being stared at by an old man that works at a large department store for a living? Really.
I think I'll waste this journal entry for little stories of my weekend!
I was working last night, around 9 PM or so, with my friend Kristen, and we were straightening the first isle, where all the tiny travel-sized items were placed in baskets. I was bullshitting by then, being tired and annoyed, emptying baskets and re-straightening them and greeting the customers with an annoyed nod of the head instead of the mandatory cheerful, "Hello! Would you like a basket? Or maybe some help!"
Resting on the balls of my feet, I watched as my friend and coworker straightened another basket and stare at a particularly nice-looking fellow with a sort-of half grin.
"You know," she said. "lately all I can think about it sex."
I responded with a raise of my eyebrows, sending her an awkward smile. She continued to speak.
"And lately, whenever I see a hot guy, I don't think, 'damn, I hope he's straight because I want him.' I think, 'Damn, I hope he's gay because It would be hot to see him kiss another guy'."
I responded then with a small laugh and a wide smile. "Me too, but I sort of keep those kings of things to myself, yeah?"
Needless to say, I was glad my manager wasn't near the isle we were located.
