Hugh Hefner would be ashamed of you.

I was on and off the information desk for most of the day today. At one point during the day I was sitting there when a middle aged man came up to me.

Conservative Conor: “Hello there.”

Me: “Howiya!?”

Conservative Conor: “I’m very well, thank you. I have a complaint I would like to make. Firstly I would like to commend you on what a wonderful store you have and that I’ve been coming here for a number of years. ”

Me: “Good stuff. What seems to be the problem?”

Conservative Conor: “Well I noticed that you sell Playboy.”

Me: “Yup, we stock a bit of everything here.”

Conservative Conor: “Because of you stocking such a magazine I’m afraid I will be taking my custom elsewhere.”

Me: “Right! Well to be honest I’m not the person you should be talking to about this. I can get you a manager if you like?”

Conservative Conor: “No, that won’t be necessary. Please just pass it on. Goodbye now.”

Off he goes leaving me baffled.

Of all things to complain about this one takes the biscuit. Playboy is quite tame in comparison to the other magazines. I only know this because I’ve seen scantly dressed individuals in Penthouse and Attitude that puts Playboy to shame. I only look at those titles because Penthouse has better articles and Attitude has a good fashion column.

I do wish I could have said more to this fellow. # BaldManProblems


Ya what?

Things not to say to your manager.

Manager: “So I’ll be all set to have that coffee chat with you on Saturday.”

Me: “Oh great! Our coffee date. Can we hold hands?”

Manager: “No…”

He seemed so enthusiastic at the beginning and then his mood changed quite abruptly. I wonder what caused that? # BaldManProblems.

She took that well

I was walking swiftly to the bathroom because I needed to lose some weight. As I approached the stairs to head to the locker room two old women stopped me for a moment.

Nora: “Excuse me? I’m looking for the Buy and Sell.”

Me: “That’s no longer in print. You can only see it online now.”

Nora: “Awh! I’m sick of all this online shite! What about the old people who don’t use it?”

Me: “Well, I don’t think they’re really concerned about you. They see a future and you’re not in it.”

Betty: “He’s right you know…”

Nora: “Bah! We old people have all the money, not you young folk.”

Nora and Betty take their leave.

I’m glad my response was taken so well otherwise that could have ended badly. # BaldManProblems
