Capitalism is for losers!  
And I have to go to work in an abandoned mall in the midst of a snowstorm because...?

Because if you don't go to work then the terrorists win!

god-forbid that hairy-faced, bear-buying, condescending-looking, patronizing-sounding, wannabe-cop, couldn't-be real world professional security guard lose a day worth of pay to support his jewelry-sucking unemployed wife.


god-forbid the customer service desk closes and mall management loses a day of hiding from phone calls, avoiding responsibility, and delaying success and prosperity of the dirty white-tiled hell we call the crystal mall.


god-forbid the bank loses funds from the few people that would be bored, unemployed, townie-ish, or "cool" enough to loiter on the mall premises during blizzard conditions... because we know that the $1.49 they might spend on a soda from sbarro's really makes it worthwhile to keep the mall doors open and welcoming for those willing to don snowboots and mittens.


they never close the mall until all of the employees scheduled to arrive for that day have arrived- they like to watch people show up, begrudgingly and half dead from near car accidents from poor diving conditions, just to order the customer service representative to create some makeshift announcement (and having a phd in english or communications and thus an extremely eloquent speech won't prevent some security guards- who shall remain nameless- from commenting on your lack of ability to speak in public) to send the dedicated workers of the mall on their formerly merry ways.

Yeah, I guess that's about it.

And so I can answer the phone ALL NIGHT to say "Thank you for calling Crystal Mall, open tonight until 9:30, how can I help you?...Yes sir, we're open...until 9:30...yes, that's correct...no problem".

"Capitalism is for losers!" ... Hmmm, I think I could make money selling t-shirts with that slogan.

similair thoughts crossed my mind as I was trekking to the bus stop yesterday morning, snow being pelted at me by a vicious northern wind, and moreover not even able to breathe!

Capitalism, Winter, whatever it is it's yucky and i wish it would go away....

heh ;)

I bring a book EVERY day...but I couldn't read it because I literally was answering the phone all night.
