It’s like a casino in there…

November 22, 2003, 10:13 PM

Day two on the registers: I kicked butt. I am definitely getting proficient at Wal-Mart’s registers.

I also can say that Wal-Mart is kind of like a casino when you get inside to work. There are no windows (and you can’t see out the doors from my vantage point), and you can’t really see out the skylights, either. Plus there are no clocks. And besides, doing checkout, it’s easy to get so absorbed in your work that you lose track of time. Makes the day go really quickly, though. Every time they close my register for breaks, I’m like, it’s time for a break already?

Needless to say, I’m adjusting to this job quite well.

Web site: This is just cool... Wal-Mart may be coming out with store-brand laptops.

Song: Theme to Roseanne (5th Season)

Quote: "We're sorry. You have activated Wal-Mart's inventory control system. Please step back, and an associate will help you." (I was at a register near an exit)
