It's interesting how people react. Yesterday, I wore a dress to work and had my hair down. The woman all worked with commented on my dress and how cute I looked in it and I had several guys comment on my hair. I just found that situation funny. Women notice clothes and apparently Men notice hair. *lol*

Strawberries and Cream and Tennis

I love Wimbledon. It maybe my favorite tournament. The tradition. The grass. The Royal Box. The all white clothes. The Strawberries and Cream. The PIMMS! It just oozes class. I also have a lot of fond memories. When I'm watching it on TV, I try to look at the stands and see if I can find where I sat on Centre Court. I find this little tidbit about Wimbledon the funniest thing. When you think of Wimbledon, you think Strawberries and Cream, the Duchess of Kent and all that stuff but you see those fans in the front rows on Centre and Court 1? Yeah, well, they all camped out last night on the pavement to get those tickets. They haven't showered. Many of them probably forgot their toothbrush or comb and many of more them are probably wearing the same clothes they wore last night. How funny is that? And so Wimbledon is just a perfect mix of the Upper and Lower classes all cheering for Andy Murray. *lol* That maybe why I really love Wimbledon. Where else in the world does that happen? There is no way you could camp overnight in Queens to see the US Open overnight and survive. No Way! So, I'm telling you to watch it. Watch WIMBLEDON! It's on ESPN2. NBC on the weekends and for the lucky few, The Tennis Channel at night.

People Suck and I'm not loving my job right now

I think I need a new job. I had such a great week with Kat but as soon as she left, my week just went downhill. I kind of hate retail. Maybe it's just he clientele at my store. Park Slope is a fairly wealthy neighborhood in Brooklyn. If you look around, you wouldn't really notice that we are in an economic downturn with their Louis Vuitton bags and Gucci sunglasses. They all feel entitled to everything and for too long the store had been letting them get away with everything. Well, we are in an economic downturn so we are not being as carefree with our exceptions as they have been in the past. I hate when they pull out the "I'm a member and shop here all the time" excuse. Well, so am I, so you're point being? Plus if you shop here all the time then how is it that this is the first time I have seen you? Anyway, they suck. The other reason I'm not really enjoying work lately is some of my cashiers have been really getting on my nerves. Ok, only really 2 of them and unfortunately they are like the only full-time cashiers we have and even more unfortunately, their hours seem to always coincide with my hours. If I open, one of them is my opener. If I close, they are my closers. If I am a mid, one is already there before I get there and the other one comes in to replace them later. I feel like I get no relief! I know they are not only working with me but it really does feel like that. One of them is hearing impaired but it's not that she can't hear me, she just doesn't listen. The other one is just so unsure of herself. She has no self-confidence. I would feel sorry for her if she didn't make my life that much harder. Between the two of them, I spend more time correcting their mistakes and basically cleaning up after them. It's exhausting. So basically, I am saying a need a new job because I don't know how much I can take this. I need a vacation.
