Remember that episode of Buffy where Cordelia's dad lost all the money so she had to work as a 'name tag' girl at a clothes boutique? Well that's what she called herself, a name tag girl. Which is what I used to be, minus being poor and actually having a name tag *shudders at the thought* Some...

Right. Not sure what I should be saying in this opinion, but as I asked Ciao to put it up over a month ago, I feel I should take advantage of actually having something to write about. Left. Sales advisor is basically a posh name for shop assistant. I have worked in a garden centre (uncle Aspen...

i have been working in retail for the last 8 years, and i love it, there is no place like the stage floor, as i would call it, so, your downstairs{or upstairs}wherever the office may be, and your getting changed, and the last thing you do, is say a little prayer, so you dontloose your cool on the scene, and as you walk up, you feel this emotion and passion, you just know that retail, and what you make of it, is the best place and most vibrant place you can ever work in, nothin stays the same, day by day things change..i love it, this is what makes me tick..best of all, THE SEXY WOMEN THAT TRY ON THERE BRASS.
