Today is St. Patrick’s Day. Just like last year, this post is work-related. Today I did my cashier training at Target. Therefore I was forced to wear the color that is the opposite of the preferred color of the day. Good thing my eyes are green or I would have been pinched.
Anyway, as I was working the register, I began to suffer from a form of reverse buyer’s remorse. I guess that’s seller’s remorse? It’s hard to believe that there is a problem with the economy when you’ve just watched people spending large amounts of money on junk for 5 1/2 hours. Perhaps my current situation is also playing a part. I mean, I’ve been trying my best to spend nothing lately, so it’s hard to watch someone spend $200 on towels. Nothing else, just towels. Her family must be really dirty. I wanted to start asking people to really consider their needs. “Ma’am, do you really need this pink lampshade?” Then I remembered that my paycheck is directly influenced by the ridiculous and irresponsible purchases of the general public, and I felt a lot better about it.
Happy St. Purchase, I mean, Patrick’sDay!
