Living the Orange Life Part III

It was just another day and another dollar working at the depot. I was a college graduate working in the parking lot collecting carts and having fun with it. And how else can one have fun with a retail job.......taking pictures with ones phone!

1)
One of the numerous fun jobs was replacing the light bulbs on the cash registers. You have to get the big ladder and climb all the way up to get to these damn things! And while up there I took this picture. Nothing really interesting, it is just amazing I was able to take this picture without my vertigo kicking in lol


2)
Being a lot attendant I saw all kinds of shit, one of them was cigarette packs from foreign countries. They always have the coolest packaging, way edger than anything in the USA! I think this one was form Vietnam, smoking sure makes your smile sexier!


3)
I saw this back East bumper sticker and had to add it to my collection! Playland of Rye NY! One of the numerous places I have never been to but still a reminder of the NY/NJ area lol


4)
I love finding these be good or suffer the wrath of an angry god pamphlets! Its funny, they have not changed in any shape, form or text since I was a little boy. These things told me exactly where my soul is going when I die lol

 5)
The depot uses Bravo cards for employees to pat each other on the back, which by the way works and I am trying to implement something like this at my current job. I started it and everyone seemed to like the idea, I just have to follow up with it to show them it was not just some smoke screen and that it does mean something. People really need to be coddled and stroked these days. The idea of having a spine and good work ethic seems to have missed several generations of people.
But you can have all those things and still have a sense of humor, notice my card to me for being awesome!


I must say I do miss working there, but as the temperatures have gotten well into the 90's these past few day I do not miss it! It will get to almost 100 tomorrow! I am soooo glad I am not working outside this August, I did my time and now I want A/C and a desk lol

My son's class/school has something similar to those cards. I thought the idea was kind of dumb lol. They are going to get some kind of t shirt or something.
