My face is peeling. Again, damn you, sun.

It's been so miserably hot in my room (it's upstairs) that I've been prancing around just in my undies. Now I'm sure no one wants to picture me prancing, let alone in my damn undies, but this is my blog dammit, I DO WHAT I WANT!


They updated Counterstrike again. What is it now, 1.7? I dunno. I played for a little bit and got my ass handed to me by a bunch of 14 year-olds (probably). I blame it on the patch.

I haven't played FFXI in quite a while. I've been trying to get myself to play again, but I just keep making up excuses like "I'm too tired" and "I have other things to do." Then I sit and watch TV for a couple of hours. Then I play some other games. Then I sleep. In between those activities I spend some time prancing like a fairy. In my undies.

We had the bitchiest customer at our store yesterday. She had a coupon that said "up to $200 off MSRP for phones when you sign up for another year." The thing is, it's not really a coupon. We give that much off for phones when people sign up anyway, so it's really just an ad to get people into the store. Who would pay $400 for a cell phone? Not too many people. So we take off up to $200 for people that sign up for a year or two. That's how you get free phones. This lady wanted to use her "coupon" after getting a discount for signing up. Confused? Here's the breakdown: she wanted a $400 camera phone. We would give it to her for $169 plus tax (and a $50 mail in rebate, so it's actually $119). She then wanted the "coupon" to go towards that already-reduced price and basically get it for free! When the "coupon" itself says IN CLEAR PRINT that it's for MSRP ($400). She out of her mind? She raised hell in the store. She called customer service and raised hell with them. All the while championing Verizon as the better company (she had two phones - one with Cingular and one with Verizon -- what the fuck is that?). After about an hour of hellraising, she left while muttering something about canceling her service with us and going with Verizon.

Why do I still work there? 'Cause I'm a masochist.
