There's something in the water

A couple of weeks ago I got a job at shoppers drugmart. I work mostly night shifts 6pm-12am and let me tell you it has been an eye opener. So far it has been like watching a parade of stereotypes. From about 10pm on the only people in the store are women buying tampons and chocolate, men buying condoms and sports drinks and sick people buying cold and flu drugs. The best one was the couple that came in to buy a pregnancy test and condoms. Can you say oopps?

Tonight was a little different, in the last four hours of my shift i sold about 10 pregnancy tests. by the end of the evening I wanted to go home and check the calender. We all Know that these things are contageous. Watchout ladies there's something in the water.

I love the word 'but'. It is the word everyone uses to say what they really mean. Dr. Phil said when you use the word "but" it means forget everything I just said what I actually meant was....

Some of my favorite but phrases are:

  • I don't want to be a nusance but,... translation, pay attention to me!!!
  • I Know you don't want my opinion but,... translation, of course you want my opinion, I know everything
  • I don't want to be a nag but,...translation, if you had just listened to me in the first place we wouldn't be having this conversation
  • He's really nice but,...translation, I would rather spend my evening cleaning my bathtub drain than waste another minute with him

What's your favorite but phrase?
