the highlights of my days

As usual, I worked both days this weekend. Also as usual, the store was pretty much empty... So, to while away the hours, I decided to make a list of my oh-so-exciting experiences! (Just in case your job is as boring as mine, and you need some ideas. Feel free to contribute in the comments!)

  • Rearrange flyers until perfectly straight.
  • Sing along with the radio.
  • Stretch. 
  • Stare blankly through the empty store.
  • Chat with coworkers (if friendly).
  • Yawn.
  • Dance spastically (if appropriate music).
  • Drink lots of water.
  • Immediately regret drinking water, since need to pee. 
  • SQUATS! 
  • Stop after five because my legs hurt. 
  • Write blog posts.
  • Get yelled at (depending on supervisor).
  • Resolve to be more surrepticious. 
  • OMG A CUSTOMER! Check through their item. (Or three, if I'm really lucky.)
  • Answer their questions, which generally take these forms: 
1) Is this store closing? (Yes, it said so in the newspaper.)
2) When is it closing? (Same as above.)
3) Can I still use my rewards points? (Yes, as it says ON THE CARD ITSELF.)

  • Sometimes, if my luck is THROUGH THE ROOF, they'll add in a story about their experiences here! Depending on my level of boredom, sometimes I am even interested.
  • REPEAT. 
Literally, this is my day. Sometimes, but again only if I'm really lucky, I get to go put away discarded items. (And that's truly a highlight.) 

Actually, though, the highlight yesterday was of quite a different kind. Someone bought... this.

This is... a shirt?

And these... are pants?

And here is the entire "outfit" in all its glory!

...I nearly died laughing. Literally, how can someone actually buy this and think, ok, this is cute? DOES NOT COMPUTE.


  1. I see a possible Christmas gift idea, Zia!

    1. ooooh, quite tempting xD thanks ever so muchhh....

  2. Oh that is some kind of outfit. Maybe it's for Halloween.

  3. I feel like this outfit will be sported at a wal-mart. it has to, it just HAS to. If I have to be the one to wear it there, then so be it.

    1. omg, i can totally see that too! please let me know if you ever spot it XD

  4. I'm all for dressing however the heck you want, but that outfit is just... beyond words. Haha WHAT!

  5. walking here with a smile. take care.. have a nice day ~ =)

  6. I started laughing when I saw this outfit!
    I have to admit I have taken with me brochures with cosmetics to see while I'm at work. In general though, I have been an incredibly good employee.

    1. hahaha, so did I! glad it brightened your day xD and that totally sounds like a good idea... i'd love to look at makeup!

  7. How can someone actually buy it? I think maybe we should ask how can someone actually have made it? haha... Maybe it's a costume??


    1. my thoughts exactly :P like, how can the manufacturer have thought this a good idea?

  8. I want to know how you managed to get a picture of the outfit without piquing the customer's curiosity ...... or, were there TWO OF THESE IN THE STORE????

  9. ....are you..sure? bahahaaa
