You make me wanna la la.

Or rather, free CDs and payday makes me want to la la.

(Okay; I just quoted Ashlee "Texas Jig" Simpson.)

Free CDs, because I did some freelance reviews for a website some months back, and now I get to keep the ones I reviewed. I'm esctatic for the Snow Patrol one which I can finally call mine. "Final Straw" (name of the album) is seriously an amazing record. Every track is memorable. Sort of like Coldplay's "Parachutes". Absolutely beautiful. And speaking of Coldplay, I have (x1000) to get their new album "X&Y" as soon as ..

PAYDAY (deserves caps) comes along. Which would be either tomorrow, or on Thursday. Just thinking of it makes me giddy with happiness. I'm already counting my chickens before they hatch- I want new clothes. I want a huge, obesity-driven meal at Chilli's, complete with dessert. I want a movie marathon (Batman Begins, Hitchhiker's Guide, A Lot Like Love, War of the Worlds- fuck me, it's a dream). I want to treat my parents to dinner. But mostly, I want new things. Materialistic, I am.

Port Dickson is where I will be tomorrow, as I go for my first "company trip", so to speak! I can't for the life of me remember the last time I was there, despite calling Seremban my hometown (it's more of my dad's hometown; I'm KL girl born and bred, yo). I can't wait- BEACH, HERE I COME! Yalah I know lah polluted and all, but nevermind. I hope we're staying till sunset. Sunsets at beaches never fail to make me feel like everything's going to be alright.

The customers amuse/annoy the hell out of me.
Amused: The ones who smile back, and thank you. Who looks at you with no disrespect. (Believe me, you can tell who thinks you're beneath them just because you're serving them.) The people who engage in conversation, and understand that during peak times, service would be slower. Basically, HUMAN BEINGS WITH COMPASSION.

Annoyed: Ugh, where do I start? People who bring in vouchers AFTER the expired date, and can't seem to understand why I can't give them the discount. They will then start comparisons; "Ooooooooh but xxx place has no expiration date! Why yours got? XXX place better lah. (Nag nag nag.)" Then go there, you fuckwit. After a while, I give them the discount anyway, just to get rid of them. I don't want to stereotype but seriously lah, all the times that this has happened, it has been a Chinese person. Why are we so hard up on a bargain, why!

I've already mentioned the next: people who think they're better just because you're serving them. OMFG. My fake smile has never gotten more practice than when dealing with these buggers. Their inability to even acknowledge us when we greet them, thank them and talk to them amazes me. Get some manners, please.

I've also been molested by one regular, who has a reputation for being all touchy-feely with female baristas. It just threw me off guard. One minute I was talking to him, the next I was being tickled and touched around my waist. WTF. I always thought I would know how to act in strange situations, but this threw me off-guard. One: he's a regular. Two: He seemed normal. Three: Maybe this was his demented version of friendly.

And last but not least, fending off customers who try pick you up. It's harder than it sounds. I must be the hardest working barista around as I am "working lah on that day." It's even harder when they're regulars, meaning you see them every once in a while and you have to make excuses again.

On a last note: Have fun at the PPS Bash! I really want to come, but can't because I'm working.

Eh that sounded like The Excuse Given To Fend Off Customers. But for real this time.

Also, go to Drama Queen Simon's blog.

SMILES LOVE AND WOW WOW WEE WAHS,
SARAH!
