(listening to: The Cat Empire - Sly)

Well, today has been far too long. Kelly's class all day. Don't get me wrong, she's a nice person, but there's something in how she talks, that not a word she says gets absorbed.

Later, a couple of people came into the common room, having been at the park getting pissed. One threw up, and was near comatose. Thus, the common room is now shut.

As I had to work 5-9, I had to get the train up to Scallymena. It was packed: joy! Now, just to explain, Savers isn't usually open this late, but every year (I think) for one day, Church Street has a discount day (where its 10 or 20% discount), so the whole street was open, causing us to follow suite.
However, we DON'T take part in this discount thing. Sample conversation:
Me: that's £10 please
customer: are you not doing discount?
Me: sorry, we're not
Customer: but you're on Church Street
Me: uh huh.......


And then there's the musical Santa. How i HATE the musical Santa! It is very loud. It plays a musical medley of Christmas songs (Jingle Bells, Santa Claus is cominng to town, and We wish You a Merry Christmas): IN MONOTONE!!!! ARGH!!!! And oh, it gets better: the medley lasts 30 seconds. This means, in 5 minutes, it willhavev played 10 times: 10 TIMES! Not good when you're tired and hate the commercialisation of Christmas. And my boss was smart enough to use Duracell long life batteries! And it's only a 1/3 of the way through November.............
