    Doing the happy dance right now.:bravo::bravo::cutie_pie::cutie_pie:

    Owner of the store calls my former boss and yes, she said I was crazy. He said...that's perfect! He liked the crazy outfits and such. He'd like to do it here. BUT...you have to climb the ladder. Everyone does. I first have to do 20 hours of bagging. Then 20 hours of checking. Then he wants me to do the demo thing again. I'm so thrilled!! I start next Wednesday.

    It doesn't pay ****, but I don't really care. Lots of opportunity to move up, or just have fun.

    Well, I was gonna do a dance, too, but it keeps putting a space between the c and e, so no dance, so sorry.

    Yep. Radish breath, and I didn't even do my hair. I guess it's slim pickins' around here.

    Can you speak English? (Yep.)

    Can you write English? (Yep.)

    Can you speak Spanish? (Nope.)

    Can you bag groceries? (Yep.)

    Ok. You've got the job.

    Tough interview.

    Great news, Abby, I'm so happy for you!
  17. Abbey

    You're bad! And yes...I would dress as a bag lady. They're loveable too. The manager actually seemed quite pleased that I am a nut. They are VERY customer oriented and thought it might be a nice 'touch.' I just said, "Beware of what you ask for."

    I have no shame.
