sample sales! Yes anna sui IS having a sample sale this year! One day only, watch it's gonna get real ugly in there real fast. A bunch of ugly women trying to buy stuff and grab at things not in their size. Ok this year i have to limit myself, because these bastards only take cash and check. wtf? take credit card, don't you know how much you will be making that way?! Geez, but I guess they don't want to pay the credit card fees or some bs reason, which is just stupid, cause women always have plastic to back anything, but when it comes to cash for that much stuff, well that is another story. And a check, who the fuck uses checks these days? like a physical check you write out, no one does that, so backwards, hence the dumb ppl that work the finances at anna sui...sigh....

I haven't updated in a while mostly bc i'm busy out shopping and crap. A small update on the whole Express thing. I was totally annoyed at them for being such lazy fucks and stuff so i decided to email them and tell them how much they sucked. being that the idiots working in the store were far too lazy to comprehend anything. I emailed them and told them how much they sucked, and the location and what happened. Express then emails me back blah blah blah, whatever, they don't give a crap and niether should I. a few weeks later, i get a letter from them, ok, its a letter saying we're sorry for your bad experience we have spoken to the ppl there. blah blah blah, more bs. like i care, and bc we're sorry we're giving you a $20 express gift card. ok it eases my pain a little. just a little. but the fact remains there are idiots working there. I've worked in retail before. I worked in a boutqiue in fucking soho and it sucked. working retail sucks. and what sucks more is dealing with stupid ppl, but still if someone asks you for something then do it. if someone wants to buy something, u help them along and take their money because you as a retail store want their money. you don't go around acting like a dumbass and playing with the cds and chatting with your friends. god. its not that hard of a job ok?!
