» Jobsworths

oh dear
Damn, petty jobsworths really are reviled. Well, I am one. Woo yay.

I work in a coffee shop, not a fancy one, but a cheap, cheap place. Our clientele are truckers, old people, armies of kids, and the occasionally snotty person who comes in and treats me like a stupid piece of shit.

I don't like that sort of treatment. So I act like I'm either deaf or stupid, whatever I fancy at the time. Usually stupid. They go from sort of stern and ordering, to sympathetic (because they think I can't help it), to frustrated, to livid 'I want to see your manager'...and then beyond livid when I start to crack up and they realize I'm not stupid.

» Pure Ignorance

I remembered a good one!
I was sitting up with my cousin, my mum and my aunt one night, can't remember what we were waiting for...and I don't know my cousin all that well so we were talking about foods we don't like. I don't like veal, and said so. Cuz asks why, I say that it's baby cows....and she stops and thinks about it. Roughly a minute later, she asks me, all horrified: "So, you mean they take the baby cows and make PORK?"

Nearly peed myself, the expression on her face was priceless.

» Local Nutters

My story kind of bites now, seeing as there are some REAL nutters out there, but there is one guy who's a really happy, nice, feel-good kind of nutter that's always around County Fair.

Everyone on this side of my town knows Tex. He walks around the mall all day, sometimes with shopping, mostly without, and you can always recognize him by the cowboy hat and bolo tie. That'd be kinda normal, but he strikes up conversation with anyone who sits on the mall benches for any length of time and the man's convinced he's a cowboy. It's cute.

He asks women to dance to the mall musak too...my friend's mum accepted one time, apparently he's quite a good dancer too. Who knew?

» How I Skive Off Work

Teacher baiting!
We did that too! There's a teacher at my school who has a massive massive repertoire of engaging stories (that are actually pretty good)...and it's hard to get her telling them, but once you have, you're home free.

One time, we learnt absolutely nothing about organic molecules; we got her talking 5 minutes into the 76-minute class period. :D

» The last thing that made me cry

oh god
I feel like an idiot, but yes...I cried at the end of Shall We Dance?, that shitty movie with Richard Gere and J. Lo.

What can I say? On a trans-atlantic flight, after the food they serve...anything seems sad and beautiful.
