Re-Tales: Xmas Edition

I asked my boss if she found the purse that her daughter wanted.

She said she had, but that it wouldn’t arrive in time for Christmas.

That was alright though; she had a plan.

She would print out a picture of the purse, seal it in an envelope, hide it in the bottom of her daughter’s stocking, and make sure it was the last thing she opened.

“I like to see my kids squirm,” she cackled.

I’ve never liked her more.



Off the List 21

This music video is simple but mesmerizing.

I saw The Weeknd open for Florence and the Machine, but I didn’t really pay that much attention to them until I heard this song on the radio. Abel Tesfaye aka The Weeknd has an amazing range and is pretty handsome too 🙂

This is one of the few non-Christmas songs that plays at work now.  I can’t tell if I actually like it or if I just have Stockholm syndrome.

Ahhhh! I just realized they play two versions of this song at work. Why???? Also, hey is this Cee Lo Green? Why yes, yes it is.

Re-Tales (Get it, like “Retail,” but it’s a story…it’s probably not good if I have to explain it)

I work at the mall.

I figured I might as well try to get something positive out of this experience, so I’m going to start posting about things that happen while I’m at work.

A couple of weeks ago, a customer came to the store to return a pair of pants.  A manager walked over and the customer, a woman, explained her situation.

Customer: I need to exchange these pants for a smaller size.  I’ve lost a lot of weight recently, due to stress.  My mother just died.

Manager: That’s great!

Customer: Thanks!

This is insane. Talk about a “silver lining.” Maybe this applies to other, supposedly “tragic” situations.

Customer: I came in to buy a whole new wardrobe because my house burned down and I lost everything.

Sales Associate: A whole new wardrobe? That’s awesome!

Customer: I know!

Lesson learned. Remember to look on the bright side.  Although most people may go with “I’m sorry to hear that,” it’s not your only option!
