As I had been instructed, I said pleasantly, 'Good morning, and welcome to Wal-Mart.

Nice children you have there. Are they twins? The ugly woman stopped yelling long enough to say, 'Hell no, they ain't twins. The oldest one's 9, and the other one's 7. Why the hell would you think they're twins? Are you blind, or just stupid? So I replied in my most polite voice, 'I'm neither blind nor stupid, Ma'am, I just couldn't believe you got laid twice. Have a nice day, and thank you for shopping at Wal-Mart.'

My supervisor said I probably wasn't cut out for this line of work.
That's a good'n, JH.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

Only there one day and you were caught on camera. Damn the luck.

funny, kind of.

So the point was ugly women could hardly get laid twice and every fucking Walmart greeter was going to remind them about that.

Got it, JB.

It also looks like the job put you into contact with subhuman filth of the least educated kind.

I'm sure you can find a better position even in this recession.

I was very depressed last night thinking about 4 years of Obama and Biden, so I called the Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

Got a call center in Pakistan.

I told them I was suicidal.

They got all excited and asked if I could drive a truck.

I have to say in general Retail as an industry sucks.

Dealing with the idiots who come into your store on a daily basis gets tiring.

I was consistently amazed by the store managers at the Home Depot I worked at. They weathered abuse by customers on a daily basis.

I remember a particular customer who came in at 9:30 pm (store closed at 10:00pm) and stood at the front service desk chatting with the associate for 25 minutes then got in one of the motorized wheel chairs and began her shopping at 9:55. At 10:30 the store manager asked her to come back the following day and she got absolutely livid. We were waiting to get her out of the store so we could start bringing in the lumber from a delivery and with the safety policies of the company we had to wait until she was out of the aisle on the backside of the lumber stacks.

Stuff like that, being called all sorts of names when you give an answer based on the manufacturers recommendations that doesn't agree with their view on how something should be installed etc.

I think that Wal-Mart is a fine company. I just can't stand dealing with people who are total Obliviots, and that is what Wal-mart caters to.

It was entertainment night at the Senior Center . Claude, the hypnotist,
exclaimed: 'I'm here to put you into a trance; I intend to hypnotize each and
every member of the audience.'

The excitement was almost electric as Claude drew a beautiful antique
pocket watch from his coat 'I want you each to keep your eye on this antique
watch. It's a very special watch. It's been in my family for six generations' He began to swing the watch gently back and forth while quietly chanting, 'Watch the watch, watch the watch, and watch the watch...'

The crowd became mesmerized as the watch swayed back and forth, light
gleaming off its polished surface. Hundreds of pairs of eyes followed the swaying watch, until, suddenly, it slipped from the hypnotist's fingers and fell to the floor, breaking into a hundred pieces.

'SHIT!' said the Hypnotist.

It took three days to clean up the Senior Center .
