Post #11: Rant about customers.


I am getting sick of customers just leaving clothes and things anywhere they choose to. Ladies tops do not belong in the mens pants section. It just makes far too much work for us volunteers, who are there to help no abuse (usually just verbally…)

Come on, people! It’s not that hard to put things back where you got them from.


Post #10: Tempation.


When you work at an op shop (or any place that sells clothes or books or whatever you are interested in) IT IS VERY DANGEROUS! I want about half the stuff in the shop.

This week I have gotten: Doc Martens, a dress, earrings, a necklace charm and 3 presents for friends. And I get paid on Monday!

Oh well… hehe.


Post #9: Young and gorgeous.


My co-workers today were all over 50, and loving having me around because I am “young and gorgeous and dress so well.” It’s odd to hear older people saying I dress well, because I dress differently to most people, but I was glad to hear it, I like people complimenting my style.

I borrowed some great, High-top Doc Martins today, wore them home. I’m hoping mum will give me $10 so I can BUY them! They’re so comfy!

That is all. xx

Post #8: Strange strangers.


Today at Vinnies I delt with alot of strange people. There’s one old man that I’m used to, be comes in every day, sometimes more than once (todays count: 3 times.)

But then there are the people who try to flirt (mainly to get a discount… which we don’t do, by the way.) And the people who just stand there then walk out…

Well, that’s my short rant for today, I am far to exhausted to jabber on anymore.


Post #7: Back at Vinnies.


So today I started my 2 week placement at Vinnies, and I am already sick of one of my co-workers. She wasn’t this annoying a few months ago!

She seems to think that she is the manager of the store, but she isn’t! She takes charge of everything… “What are we doing selling battery-powered toys? They don’t have any in them, you can’t tell if they work. Don’t put anymore battery toys out, ok?” IT ISN’T YOUR STORE, YOU DON’T DECIDE THESE THINGS!

At least I got to go home about an hour early, there was nothing for me to do.

Hopefully that lady isn’t working every day, or I will go insane.


Post #6: You + me = we.


I’ve been talking to my friend about these 2 boys who are obviously in love, but deny it. We decided to combine their names, and got “Dezza”.

Then we went on to combine our own names with our boyfriends. I got “Lustin” and “Jiz”… She got “Bon”, “Bron”, “Ridge” and “Rodget”, personally I like the last one.

It got me thinking… What if someone out there got a combo name more unfortunate than “Jiz”… I put together “Hillary” (as in Clinton” and “Obama” and got “Hobama”!

Let me know if you can think of anything hilarious.


Post #5: Video ezy, more like Video HARD!


My mum and I went to the video shop before (If you read my last post; mum is just ignoring what happened last night. Oh well) and we lost our card, so we had to tell the guy our surname ra ra ra. But it’s in my dads name, and he doesn’t live with us anymore, so we can’t hire movies. Now I have nothing to do tonight, maybe I should have gone to that party with my boyfriend after all.

We can’t sign up in my mums name because she doesn’t have a licence, passport or Keycard. I could have tried my Proof of age card, but I didn’t take my wallet. She tried to use her work i.d and Medicare card, but NOOOO, they don’t accept that! What, do they think we’re stealing someone identity to rent dvds? For crying out loud.

Back in the 90’s, it was alot easier.
