Never really knew much about this holiday other than it is used as an excuse to go out and get hammered. (Not that I need any excuses ). But JoJ made a comment about it in a thread yesterday and it got me to wondering what Cinco De Mayo was all about. Now I know. Just thought I'd share.

Haha, I have to work today. My boss had the audacity to ask me to dress up for the occasion knowing I own a poncho and a sombraro. I'm going to walk in dressed as a corpse.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

Unlike everybody else here who wants to get hammered, I actually celebrate it and then get hammered. I mean, its not like it a big whoop or anything, but there is meaning behind it.

And I had no idea what that meaning was until 15 minutes ago.

No, because as a joke I convinced her that Cinco De Mayo is the Day of the Dead.

Edit: Though, when we were decorating for Halloween, we had a Scooby Doo theme, and after she left one day I put the Mystery Mobile we made next to the beer displays, and had the dolls we had inside it sounded by bottles of Captain Morgan so it looked like they died from a drunk driving accident. I got written up for that one.

Actually, I've heard from reliable sources that most of the American douches come from New Jersey.

They said it on the Daily Show.

It's somewhat true, although technically the douches come from a place called Nu Joisey, all I'm going off of is pronunciation.

Nah, I'm a pump jockey. So I get all the really moronic people who can't be bothered to go to the super market. Its great, I sell people their weekends, what with my gasoline, my cigarettes, and my rivers of liquor. Today, I'm going to get a lot of morons who have no idea what Cinco De Mayo is, celebrating the hell out of it. And oddly enough, they're under the impression that they have the moral authority to complain about something I do or say. My listening to The Chronic by Doctor Dre while there are customers in the store is apparently much worse than letting your kids see you drunk off your ass. Go fig. And yes, the stuff that happens in Clerks.. Some of it really does happen. You do get a lot of static for selling cigarettes to people. I generally explain that they should be happy that I'm killing off people who are stupid enough to smoke. (That's not really an insult, I'm a smoker, too.)

I dunno, customers really annoy me sometimes. I'm not allowed to smoke in the office anymore because customers were complaining about smelling smoke.. yeah, if you're worried about those dangerous fumes, you should probably stay away from the gas pumps, moron. Everything I sell will kill you. Enjoy your fatty foods.

About the ad:

The company was trying to make a joke (and indeed, a very bad one) but some Americans took it the wrong way (others up the ***). And that's pretty much it!

About George Bush, he was only Governor of Texas, not an actual citizen of Texas and only moved there so he can carry the state when he ran for president. Like how Hillary is a Senator from New York, but not from New York.

^ You said a mouthfull there Jill. It seems you like your job but not your customers.

Actually, I like both of them. I do like my job, I just get really annoyed by people sometimes. Yesterday there were these two skater kids skating on the parking lot, which I don't really care too much about if it is later in the day and there's no one in the lot, or very few people. But they were doing it when we were at our busiest, so I asked them to do it elsewhere. They chose to do it next to my brand new car, which I got a month ago. I noticed then when I was taking out the trash and smoking a ciggy. The little bastards had the audacity to tell me I was a bad person for smoking, so I asked them to leave altogether. They proceeded to annoy me, so I pulled out my cell phone and acted like I was actually going to bother the police. They were furious, and I'm sure their mommy and daddy's, who are friends with my manager, are going to piss and moan about it. For the most part, I like the people that come in, and my job is fun because I usually get away with murder, like when I set up a kissing booth in the middle of the floor, charging a penny for kisses.

What this has to do with Cinco De Mayo: I don't know. But I'm wearing a sombraro right now, so we can pretend like its related.

I just got a bottle of some really hard stuff yesterday. I was going to wait till the weekend with my friends and be responsible because theres school tomorrow, but cinco de mayo sounds like the perfect excuse for having fun tonight. It feels like its getting overlooked this year though, like no one even mentioned it today in school but myself, probably because its on a monday :/
