Because You Didn't Notice My Giant Name Tag

Hello World -

As I begin the journey out of retail I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite moments, stories, and incidents from what feels like an eternity of working with the public.

I guess it is background time: These stories come from the worlds of books, overpriced wicker, food service, and a big box retailer, in the state of Indiana. [Insert some kind of Indiana joke here. You know you have one.]  These stories will be about the people not the organizations. It is just more fun this way. You don't care about the place; you care about the amount of crazy that can be contained in one person.

All of the stories you will read here are true. Names will be changed to protect the stupid, intolerant, and sometimes innocent individuals from these moments in my life. I might secretly be hoping some of you will recognize your own behaviors here, feel bad about them, and make the necessary adjustments. Mostly, I hope you laugh a little. It's good for the soul.
