Slumpvis Mondays

Today I saw something random when I was unpacking boxes:

There was a random comic too, and I kinda' wanted to know what it said.

People have used weird things to pack boxes with, and the most annoying thing is newspaper. (Though co-workers would argue for packing peanuts.) Why? I don't like newspaper. It makes my hands feel dirty. I will eat an m&m I dropped on the floor, but I dislike touching newspaper. Weird, I know, but it's true.

Anyway, so I figured that the company was based outside of America, because we order from random countries sometimes. But nope, right here in the US, in Oklahoma. And it just reminded me of how cool America is. (Well... Let's not get into that discussion.) I like the fact that there are so many different cultures and stuff that you can bump into. (Though dealing with only Spanish-speaking individuals can be difficult. Or only French-speaking people. Or... Okay. I am an arrogant American and can't stand it when people can't speaking English, because right now that is the trade language [although other languages are starting to pull their weight around] and if you want to buy something in America, and you live in America, you should know enough English to trade, or bring someone with you who can. I'm not trying to be mean, but it annoys me when I can't help someone because I can't understand them. Yes, this means I should learn a smattering of Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, and French, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. Akkadian is much more interesting to me right now.)

Anyway. I didn't mean to rant, but I just kinda' chuckled over the randomness of it and wanted to share. Also, today my dad bought me these, which was good because I already wanted to hunt down some caramel.

I love Junior Mints, and these were good too... mmmm...

Anyway. That is my random thing for this Monday. I promise you I will write a Retail Wednesday this week, even if it's really short. Ugh. Two weeks is a terrible amount of time to miss, and I feel like I failed all of you miserably. :( Sad face. But I ate some chocolate, so now I will have the energy to get up tomorrow and do all of my homework so that on Wednesday I can put up for you a lovely post. Huzzah!

How did I not see this? And how did I not notice you taking a picture of it?

And you just send all the French speakers to me!

I love using bubble wrap for packing but it's 'spensive.

I just ate a whole giant box of junior mints the other day...delicious and my breath smelled minty for hours!

You have let me down with your lack of retail posts. I can barely drag myself out of bed in the morning. thanks.

@Falen: I know, both are evil, evil, evil. *shudders*

@Palindrome: Oh no! Are there no apologies that I can proffer which will satisfy your anger? Shall I forever wallow in the shame of what I wrought? Alas, who shall hearken to my plea...

Oh. Whoops. I've been reading waaay too many Greek tragedy plays.
