I haven't been moved to post a reaction to something from another site in quite awhile, but this bullshit had me seeing red. I'll direct your attention to the part where the chick responds to the meme with, "I’d just like to take a moment to say that CASHIERS SUCK. they are the single most useless associates at big stores like walmart (where I work). Sure, cashiers are cool when someone needs to be rung out (ringed out?) and leave but what about the other 95% of the time a customer is in the store? Or when the store is dead and all the cashiers can only muster up enough brain cells to continuously clean their belt? Cashiers can suck my dick because you have no idea what a REAL 9 hour day in retail is like if all you’re doing is handing back change and receipts, bitch."

*deep breath* EXCUSE ME, CUNT, but your IGNORANCE is showing! You try taking all the fucking FLACK from customers and management while standing in one place all fucking day long, dealing with lines that never end, the phone ringing off the hook, people screaming at you about stuff you have NOTHING to do with, your relief never being on time, price tags being missing, prices being WRONG, carts overflowing with crap, people wanting double-bagging, no bag, having a re-usable bag with a questionable ODOR, being handed DAMP MONEY OUT OF SOMEONE'S BRA/PANTS/UNDERWEAR, being hit on/ranted at/preached to/sworn at and unable to get away or say anything in your own defense without being written up or losing your job, never getting a break, always being called/thought of as stupid, being treated as an automaton or slave, having things THROWN AT YOU (like credit cards, change, merchandise), being threatened for closing the doors at the end of a shift, having to clean and organize the entire front-end by yourself, being the last one besides management out the door, people on their CELL PHONES, et cetera, ad nauseum. The list goes on and on. How fucking dare you say that cashiers suck? That we don't know what a REAL 9 hour day is? You can suck my nonexistent cock, you judgmental little TWAT.

*exhale* There. That's much better. Thank you for your consideration. *curtsy*

I've been saving up a lot of things to post about that are kinda ranty, so here we go.

Chick-fil-A )

Reverse Racism )

Sexism )

Now that that's over we can get on with our irregularly unscheduled update. We had a Super Bowl party last Sunday, and it was fun to hang out with everybody for awhile. Curtis and I rearranged the living room the Wednesday before in anticipation of the visit, and I'm much happier with the result. We also finally hung pictures! Now I just have to get him to organize the movies, and I'll have really gotten somewhere. Oy. Hmm..went out with Jana today to get Romex's birthday present at Best Buy. Rescheduled lunch with Dad for next week, and I'm going to dinner with Mom and Mema tomorrow night. May see Jana and Artist A tomorrow, if not Sunday. I guess lots of days off are good every once in a while.

I just finished reading Suzanne Collins' Catching Fire, which was awesome, and I'm almost done with Relic by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, which is pretty good for a detective thriller. I'm not sure what I want to read next. We'll see. On the anime front we're still on Godannar, but we also watched the first episode of Queen's Blade with Netflix streaming. I can't wait to see more. We're also working through Supernatural. I still hope they end the series soon before it gets really trite (not that it hasn't gotten pretty ridiculous already, heh). Glee is back on, yay! And I'm watching a new show on Mondays called Harry's Law starring Kathy Bates. It's really funny. Well, that's enough inane stuff for now. I'm off!
