since i put in my two weeks at target, i thought i would now take the time to talk about the “people” at target.
the guys
the guys fall into two groups, i’ve noticed. the younger guys who are there because they’re in school, they’re looking for other jobs, they’re just at another job. then the older guys, who tend to be there because they’re angry guys, weirdos, or losers. then there’s dave. we’ll talk about him later.
the girls
most of them seem to be butch. there’s a couple of older women in the group, with kids, so it seems to me they’re trying to save on childcare or something like that. the younger ones are kind of, hmm, odd, it seems. they’re not the girls who were class presidents or “most likely to be a model,” that’s for sure. they’re all kind of socially “off.”
then there’s the oddities.
albert
this guy creeps me out. he wears the same pair of navy blue sweatpants to work every day. his ears stick out like no tomorrow. he has bad gas and doesn’t hide it. his glasses are like coke bottles.
TRUNCATED! ohnoeessss
Dave
dave reminds me of my dad – he’s an older guy and i’m not sure if he is working there because he’s bored or because he has to. he drives an astro van. how fitting. however, he does not take lunch in the van, like my dad. they don’t let you out of the store for lunch breaks (otherwise, he might). there’s a snotty girl who works there,
chrystine
who ALWAYS picks on dave, and i just want to slap her. she’s self-centered, and never shuts up, “knows” everything (unlike shawn, who really does know everything), and i swear, she’s never had something not go her way. she’s probably an only child and i hate listening to her whiny voice. i tune it out whenever i work near her.
that’s my night crew. and in two weeks i’ll no longer be there! and my feet will become un-numb!! i’m very happy about this. 🙂
