Yeah, clothing retail is the worst. But that chain went out of business a little while ago. I wonder why.

      Usually they're not, but I drink in them anyways 'cause I'm a BAMF .

      In all seriousness, working in any form of retail sounds like the worst job ever. I mean, I hate having to get up at 6am to go to work, but I'd much rather that than waking up at 8am to go and clean up other people's mess/stack shelves/serving rude customers etc. Over the summer I'm probably going to have to get one and the thought of it irks me.

      Only the fancy ones from my experience. Maybe it's different in different places?

      The store was in a mall. People would bring sodas from the food court and stuff and occasionally drop them. If I saw it guess who had to clean it up? I also had to clean up grosser things occasionally, I just dont understand why people have to make such a mess. I also once saw someone smoking inside the store.

      I worked retail for a little while, and I didn't really mind it that much. Saw a few familiar faces and whatnot, but a lot of the people I worked with, and the people I interacted with were generally nice. Although, around Christmas time, or Boxing Day in specific, there's no such thing as a polite Canadian.

      This concept of there not being a single polite Canadian is very hard to imagine because of all the stereotypes of Canadians being super-nice that we have here in the States. :P

      Boxing Day can be bad. Especially in parking lots. I once went to Best Buy to get a Wii game and an SD card, and we were trapped in our stall for almost 45 minutes before we had our first opportunity to get out.

      I'm one of the few people who wishes they worked in retail. Do you know how hard it is to get a job and not be a teenager when you haven't? You learn so many skills that are transferrable, especially in the United States, because so many of our jobs deal with how you interact with people, how you work in a fast paced environment, and even things like being dependable with sensitive items or information (such as using a cash register).

      So when I'm out of a job, I can't find temporary work. Only another full time job, because I'm too overqualified for part time work, and too underqualified to actually do any of it when they can find a 16 year old and shape'em the way they want. I've been there. It ain't easy. It's not fun.

      I read "crazy people" and "cats" and thought of crazy cat people.

      Good luck with that. Female cat urine kind of has ammonia in it, and that stuff reeks horribly.

      Although for the record all cat urine has ammonia and is gross. Boys are worse though cause if you don't neuter them (and even if you do sometimes) they spray.

      I have 3 cats, and they are all so different. The boy is the most 'sexual', but has not been neutered yet which we are to do after Christmas. Other 2 cats, females, have been neutered since one gave birth to over 30 kittens in total after a numerous amount of births and it was getting hard to deal with so it had to be done. It's nice having cats, they love being around you, laying in your lap or sleeping in bed with you; very fun and loving animals :3

        Cats are so cool. They're a lot more personal in having to get to know you, play with you. I remember some of my old cats (long since dead) sitting on the bed watching us, and last Christmas where we basically lived like cavemen and watched free TV with its corny commercials for dentures and stuff for weeks. Ah, those were the days... :)

        Because I've spent the past 15 years living in a house that smells like that even with daily cleaning of the litter boxes.

        Depends on the cat. There are issues for some of them when they're picky about the litter box, and even my almost perfect cat peed on the floor when we moved his litter box. >_o

        At one time my mom thought my cat went to the batroom outside the litter box a few times, but I think that was when I brought her home, sometimes they can be stressed out and that happens but as far as I know she now uses the litter box all the time. My dog however has a nasty habit of going to the bathroom in the house >_>

        Thing is, the cat we still have will think she's in the box if she can see the edge of the box in front of her, but she ends up peeing outside of the box. She does that with far less regularity now, but it used to be almost daily before we finally figured out why.
