I miss you guys!
Now that tax season is over and my H&R Chock office is closing, perhaps I can share with you some of the interesting people I've had this season. I must admit that working in a place that people consider to be an office is much nicer because people tend to behave a little better.
There are a lot of creeps. Creeps file taxes.
I had funny adorable old guys hitting on me (low on the creep meter), to middle aged guys trying to rub my back (mega-fucking-high on the creep meter).
And sometimes there are mega tools who think they're the center of your universe. But I guess that's like any other place :)
Mostly I sat around and did nothing and got paid for it, so not too much to complain about. I do have a request for you parents out there.
DON'T BRING YOUR CHILDREN TO THE TAX OFFICE. There is no place for them.
We have a tiny office and just.....ohhhh so many children. They love the water cooler too.
One child took a cup, filled it with water, and poured the water onto one of our chairs in the waiting area. And repeated. Again. And again. And his mom just watched and clucked. And I stared in horror, went home, and took a whole pack of birth control. :D Hehehe.
So now since the tax office is closing I'm job hunting.....really, I've been job hunting for weeks, but no luck. I have to be a bit picky about where I apply because of my shitty allergies.
Wish me luck :)

Hey RHUers, Freddy here! 20/20 just made this awesome clip of my piggy shopper video!
Show airs tonight at 10pm PST on ABC!
Oh my f'ing god!!!
I went to my local grocery store yesterday (Saturday) and watched the rudest, racist 2 women I have ever seen in my life!!!
Now the back story to this is that I went to my countries equivalent of Wal-mart. This store has shitty pay and no one wants to work there except immigrants, especially eastern European immigrants.
Now their language and my language are in two different groups and aside the fact that my language is notoriously difficult to learn. I can also imagine that it's even more difficult to learn as there are very few language courses available and they are very expensive.
Back to the story.
I went to the store and got the food and everything else I needed and went to the register. In line in front of me were two women who were maybe 40-50 years old. They were friends and were talking all the way through their transactions, they mainly talked about how "these damn foreigners were stealing jobs from those more deserving". Now I shop at this store regularly and the woman on the register can speak the language very well except for the numbers.
She tells the first woman her total (in a very simplified way) and she just sneers and hands over her gold card.
While the second woman is being rung up these woman start bad mouthing the poor check out girl right in front of her, calling her a dirty pole, that she should go back home if she isn't going to try and integrate herself into Icelandic society.
Like I said before she can speak Icelandic quite well and she understands even more and I could see she was on the verge of tears.
She tells the second woman her total in the same simplified way and the bitch said: "If you can't say the total in correct Icelandic I'm not paying".
I just had too!!!
I asked that entitled racist bitch if she would like to work the registers in that particular store. She said no, I asked if she wanted other people to talk about like she was a moronic piece of shit right in front of her again her answer was n.n.n....no.
I told her that if she didn't want to work here she had no right to judge people that did or treat them like they were shit.
I also added that if she was as rich as she pretended to be she wouldn't be shopping in this store and just shut up and pay with your platinum card and leave the poor girl alone!!!
I knew my countrymen were racist but I have only witnessed it once before in my 29 years.
Check out girl was thankful for the help but I have been so fucking angry since this happened I had to share this with someone!
