Why do I like this job, again?

Starbucks Twenty Questions
Me: Hey, good morning. What can I get for you today.
Moron (aka Customer): Ah, that light thing?
Me: Frappacino?
Moron: ...
Me: Cold drink? Blended...
Moron: No, hot. Hot?
Me: Skinny latte?
Moron: Yes.
Me: Flavor?
Moron: ...
Me: Vanilla? Hazelnut? Cinnamon Dolce? Gingerbread? Mocha?
Moron: Yes.
Me: ...
Moron: Vanilla.
Me: Size?
Moron: Grande.
Me: Anything else for you today?
Moron: Yes.
Me: ...
Moron: Sandwich.
Me: Which kind?
Moron: ...
Me: *points at case*
Moron: Oh...Sausage.
Me: *mental headdesk*

I'm still covering shifts this week, and today I was covering about half of an opening shift (I can't be there at 5a because I walk to work). So, Dad dropped me off at work, I had a quick breakfast and clocked in at 7a. Then my assistant manager decided that there'd been too many manhours scheduled that week, and starts sending people home.

So I got up at 6a to work two and a half hours today. Not pleased. Not pleased at all.

And since I had an appointment a few hours later, I just went down to Silver Spring rather than home. And the wireless keeps going out on me.

And then C cancelled on me (we were supposed to go hunting for the illusive Bra That Fits), so I'm not having the best day.

I'm not sure if I've told you this story - when I worked at the bookstore a lady once came up to me and said she was looking for a book for her father, for Father's Day. She wanted to know where the Non-Fiction section was.

Insert *headdesk* It took a lot to not twirl around while pointing at most of the bloody store :p We eventually narrowed it down - but honestly!

I'm sorry you're having a bad day >_

She was probably assuming the bookstore was like a library in structure. Still, *facepalm*

Eh, I'll be alright. I've got therapy in an hour, and then the 'rents are possibly going to pick me up. And it's not like I actually wanted to go bra shopping, I just need to.

Ah. Nothing like dealing with the morons, pre-caffiene.

Oh, wow. I think that is the reason I don't work in retail anymore. Stupid customers that you have to be nice too.

Perhaps they were seriously out of it...

VS has the new biofit thingy. I went and looked at one and it seems interesting...but I also put it right back in the drawer because it's $48 >.

Yeah, that's part of the problem. I'm tired of paying $40+ for bras that don't even fit well. We were going to go see if we could find something that fits better at another store.

Oh oh oh! Bra shopping! Sign me up -- assuming this problem still isn't solved by the time I come home next month. Ever tried the Hanes half-fit bra? I don't know what you actual sizing problem is, however...

Man, I love underwear shopping; it's unnatural.

No, my problem is two-fold: that my breasts are visibly uneven, and that they need more support that one would expect for their size for me to be comfy. The bra I used to by, from Vickie's, fit like a dream, but they discontinued it, and the most similar thing is a little uncomfortably around the underwiring.

And yes, that is unnatural.

The elusive bra that fits
Go to Nordstroms - the measure you (bra on - no embarrassment - and then they scamper around getting you the perfect bra while you stand in the dressing room life an important person. Changed my life.
