You have my sympathy, I swear It's the cash handling.

Money goes through so many grubby paws which have been in contact with so many germ ridden surfaces...

You should have to wear nitrile gloves and a face mask to operate a register.

A good hand sanitiser and avoid touching your face... it helps.

Yeah. I mean we keep sanitizer at every register, but I'm sure it's not the best, and not everyone uses it. I use it numerous times a day, but still get in this situation. You know what pisses me off the most? Is when people come into then damn store, I do my usual "how are you doing today" and they proceed to tell me all about how they're sick! It pisses me off! 9/10 times they're not even getting groceries one would need to not be sick, one time these guys were getting stuff to grill out and this girl was going on about how she's sick. Like don't come spreading your goddamn germs to me if you're sick, stay home or have someone else go do it unless you're in dire need of groceries - PLEASE.

FYI, feeling ZERO percent better today, but still have to go to freaking work. To make things even worse, my boyfriend has been out of town for work, and just got back late last night. I haven't seen him since Sunday night, and I was planning to see him tonight. Now arguing with myself about it, because I do not want him to catch this!

This gives a whole new meaning to the term "filthy lucre."
It may also explain why my health has improved since I retired...

Macho posturing will always cause things like this to crop up occasionally. Besides rolling eyes and asking "really?" to anyone displaying such a thing, mostly use it as a marker of the maturity of the person displaying it, IMO.

Actually, this triggers a memory (which I’m sure I’ve mentioned on Dimensions before, because what haven’t I? So apologies to anyone for whom this is a repeat).

I have a brother five years older than me, whose tastes are strictly mainstream (i.e. thin but busty blondes for the most part). Spanning the period when I hit puberty he had a poster up in his bedroom about “how to rate girls” (the 1-10 rating thing was a trend back then – I blame the stegosauruses who were always proud to show they could count that high, but I digress). It had pictures of two women in bikinis -- one a Dallas Cowgirls cheerleader type, and the other a fairly fat woman (not particularly big by Dimensions standards, but certainly fat, especially considering you saw less fat people back then, other than the brontosauruses). They’d also put the fat woman in un-stylish glasses, lank and greasy looking hair, and had (badly) retouched the photo to give her severe acne.

The poster pointed to various physical features with witty captions for both women, such as pointing to their belly buttons and labelling “a sweet little divot” for the “ten” and “junk food vault” for the “1.” (or something like that).

Despite the unflattering grooming on the 1, and the disparaging comments, whenever I wouldn’t get caught I’d slip into my brother’s room and stare at that poster, knowing that I liked the fat woman better, trying to imagine what she’d look like if groomed as well as the thin one, letting the comments roll around in my mind to decide which ones were simply vacuous and which made valid points that I thought were good rather than bad. In fact, that poster let me really, unconditionally, cement in my mind that I was more attracted to fat women despite all the guidance to the contrary.

So when you see something like that link, consider that there may well be some people staring at it, reversing it all and getting kind of excited …

The article should have been titled "10 Reasons Why High School Boys Won't Admit They Find Fat Women Attractive."

Sorry you are feeling so crappy. Working retail is always a gateway for all kinds of things. When I worked retail I use to use gloves. Maybe you can try that.

I hope you feel better soon!

At work, for the next four months the son of the Vice-President of my department will be here as an intern .... in the desk right behind mine (it isn't a personal thing against me, it is just the last empty desk near the group he'll be working with). He's a nice enough kid, but he's rather literal and not big on mental filters, so I'm going to have to watch what I say, as well as what I have up on my computer screen.

Going to be a long four months at work .... and on the Dims side it means I'll be dropping in almost exclusively on my phone, so I likely will be less active here.

At least it should encourage me to get out of the office at lunch for a walk!

Default Cooks!

UGH!!! I am so mad. I order a Chicken Milanese sandwich for lunch. From the sandwich I would venture to guess that the person who made the sandwich is Hispanic (Mexican most likely). Let me make this clear.. I am not slamming Mexicans. There are plenty of foods they make that I enjoy.

I order this sandwich because there was no pasta today and this is the closes I can get to Italian food. So I bite into the sandwich and what do I find.. avocados! WTF?!?!?!?! There is not suppose to be avocado in the sandwich! It is Chicken Milanese for Pete's sake! So I take it back to the cook and ask.. are you Hispanic.. and of course.. he is.. and as I suspected Mexican. I told him.. listen.. when people ask for Chicken Milanese, they are looking for something close to Italian, please keep avocados out of the sandwich. I am Hispanic.. and I understand about hispanics and using "Spanish" spices (cumin, cilantro, etc.) in everything but really! Not everything is better with avocado or cumin or cilantro! and BTW, you need to change your sign to say there is avocado in the sandwich because it is not listed. What if I would have been allergic?

ASSHOLE!!!!!!!!!!

Sounds like they made it like a Torta Milanesa. Which does indeed have avocado and is quite delicious, but as you pointed out a far cry from Milanese. Hope they made it right for you.

Sounds like someone was assuming EVERYONE likes avocado. We have a few restaurants and sandwich shops in upstate NY that give you a dirty look when you ask for NO avocado.

Milanese should have some lemon flavor to it, not Hispanic-centric spices or accompaniments. I worked at too many Italian places: one had their Milanese sandwiches come with lemon aioli.

You're the customer, they're just the cooks. It's YOU they should please, not themselves. It's as if they hadn't a clue as to what Milanese means.

It always drives me up a wall when my food is wrong too! Which unfortunately happens quite a bit since I'm kinda picky for a fatty. There is a fairly long list of foods I utterly despise: olives, pickles, onions, celery, beets, peepers, mushrooms, any type of melon, regular pie crust or flaky-type pastries with that quality (graham cracker crusts rock though), anything vinegary or more than a teeny bit spicy. And there's an even longer list of foods I'll eat if everyone else is but don't really care for and never would independently choose to eat: hot dogs, sausage, ham depending on how it's cooked, can be yummy or can be "meh" (I have a soft spot for bacon though), most cooked veggies (I'm cool with broccoli and some raw veggies), grapes (I like grape juice and wine), bananas, and sweet potatoes (these use to be on my "do not touch with a 10-foot fork" list but I tolerate them now and actually like sweet potato fries, and I'm basically addicted to white potatoes). I'm always reading descriptions of dishes and thinking "*SIGH* This would be really good if only it didn't have X )".

But the foods I like I LOOOOVE! Unfortunately those things are mostly unhealthy or at least fattening (not that that last part is so bad ). I could write articles on the merits of McDonald's vs Burger King vs Wendy's, or in-depth analysis of the various Twizzlers products. So I guess you could say my tastes aren't very broad but they are deep. I remember tastes very vividly and I have strong opinions and even emotions about food. I don't know if that makes me a foodie or a junk-food addict or a picky 5-year-old or what.

Actually my clients are almost always guilty and I would do them a real disservice if I didn't point this out. Negotiating a deal is a far better strategy than going to trial on looser case.

Here's how an actual conversation with a deputy district attorney regarding a felony burglary case went.

DDA; You know your client is an asshole?

Me: Yes, but he's an asshole who was smart enough to keep his mouth shut.

long pause

Me: You can prove trespassing (a misdemeanor) with just the officer's testimony.

DDA: Fuck off!

longer pause

DDA: What's the trespass section?

Me: 602(m)


My clients get far better results than do the clients of attorneys who believe their BS.

Thanks, it all worked out. The DA backed down at the last minute and the fact that his trial was about to start and once it did there would be no going back made my client more reasonable. He pled to a low level misdemeanor and was placed on probation and fined. The more serious charges were dismissed.

Me: "we need to update this contact list"
Them: "well that wont happen!"
Me: "...why?"
Them: "because i don't know the owners"
Me: "ok, but how can we have 300 things that should have owners and your list has 100?"
Them: *shrug*

.....

Me: ..."please do an analysis of how many contacts we SHOULD have vs how many we do not. We will use the list to drive sessions to identify the owners."
Them: "i can't."
Me: "export both lists and do a compare. You are the reporting and analytics sme, and this is the list of owners you need to maintain."
Them: *being ignorant*
Me: fine. I will do the analysis and let our mutual boss know that i cannot cover for you while on vacation because i do not have this info, because i see at a glance we are missing 100 contacts!!

....10 minutes later, he asks me to export him the info.

Like, fuck man. Part of your job is to keep track of this. You didn't do it, sass me, get pissy...? Just take some time while i am gone to IDENTIFY the GAPS, not the owners themselves!!!

Do. Your. Job!!
