The Comic Shop Life: Day 6, Saturday (Ordering Pigs for Comics, S.H.I.E.L.D. and Some Austen)

Halfway there!  You knew this couldn’t last.  I don’t have the patience to do this job full time.  The previous five days should be proof of that.  Pt. 1, pt. 2, pt. 3, pt. 4, pt. 5.

Saturday, Day 6

10:40-  Still haven’t seen any ants since earlier this week, but traps are down just in case.  Bought ’em for the store, might as well use ’em for the store.

11:42- Have yet to do anything work related.  Unless you count texting the boss one question.

11:43-  I really should stop watching this Supergirl trailer so much. But, and I quote,

I… I don’t want to.” -Supergirl

12:16-  Another round of reorders.  I really hope I’m not ordering twice as many as I want by forgetting that I already ordered a stack.  :\  Guess we’ll find out.  C’mon, how bad could one little shipping error be?

12:32-  Some customers offer forth their opinions meekly.  Others proclaim them boldy and without prompting.  (Shrug)  To each their own.  Free speech, amIright?

1:03-  Stalking and obsessive behavior is a good plot for a comedy show?  I can see a sketch, but whole season?  I like musicals, but not that much.

2:07-  Nope, I couldn’t tell ya how she figures out what you want ordered and what you don’t.  Must be a very complex algorithm.  Either that, or she’s had over a decade to practice.  Me, I just guess.

3:03-  Please, please, please don’t drop the remaining 20 oz of your 24 oz drink on the floor.  Or on the comics.  Please.

3:10-  Ahh!  I put a comic in the wrong box.

3:13-  I think I found the right one.

3:14-  Yeah, I’m over it.

“No, Lizzy, let me once in my life feel how much I have been to blame. I am not afraid of being overpowered by the impression. It will pass away soon enough.” -Pride and Prejudice

3:34-  That customer’s baby smelled like baby.  (Good?  Bad?  Interpret it as you wish.)

4:07-  I keep getting “this close” to finished S.H.I.E.L.D.  Silly customers.  What do they think this is, the weekend or something?

4:58-  Last S.H.I.E.L.D. (for now), done.  Last FF (for now), done.  Time to flee.
