St. Helens burped. half of them say that that was all she needed to get rid of some pent up gas. the other half say that they'll just monitor the hell out of it for awhile.
no matter what, though, the freaking local news will NOT shut up about it. return to the regularly scheduled programming, thankyouverymuch.
i also love that even almost 25 years later, the land around st. helens still looks like it was a nuclear holocost instead of a volcanic eruption. i was looking at pics last night of what it looked like before, and it was absolutely beautiful.

i watched the news coverage of it, and then ran (well, i didn't RUN, i just walked casually, really...) out front. right over the top of Chuck E. Cheese, it looked as if there was a small mushroom cloud.
less than 10 min later, the wind had completely blown it away.
after all that hype and excitement for those of us that had never been through a volcanic eruption before... well, i thought that was quite... disappointing. but at least i got to see it.
heard a knock on my bedroom door this morning, it was andrea telling me i had a phone call. tony, naturally, wondering WHERE THE HELL I WAS, as it was 15 min after the store opened and i was supposed to be there. woops. two seconds later, andy calls, saying he'll come pick me up. he also loaned me Rat Race, so i must watch.
today was one of those days that practically everything i touched turned to shit. a $1800 sale i did on furniture yesterday? dumbass me overcharged her on accident. my register crashed repeatedly, so they moved me to another one, which also crashed/ran out of paper/beeped a lot. there were a series of customers that came through my line, where every. single. one. of. them. had a freaking beef to pick with me.
my favorites of the day, though?
- someone who stomped out and said they would never shop there again because we were unable to sell her a fax machine that would fax without having a phone line.
- someone who was angry that she couldn't find anyone out on the floor to help her, so also stated she would shop at staples from now on. i told her to have a nice day, she yelled 'DON'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO!' (this one was almost as good as the one that screamed at me for smiling at her...)
- another one that spit on Manager Steve as she was screaming, in tears, because we wouldn't take her word on the fact that she had bought 15 binders and didn't have a receipt, didn't have the binders, and wanted us to give her money back on an ad match with Office Depot. She, also, stated - at the top of her lungs in front of a full crowd at the registers - that she would take her business elsewhere from now on. we should RUE the day that we crossed her, because she has 14 GIRLS IN HER GIRLSCOUT TROOP! (is she putting a boycott on us for cookie sales or something?!?!)
too many others to list. i'm tired and hungry, and i need to pee.
happy october, everyone!
