    Shopping and Flirting.

    Today at the checkout, I started flirting again, this time with the cute
    5'10" blonde behind the register.

    All was going great until I hear "I'm in a hurry!"

    I turned around and replied "If you don't mind, I'm trying to flirt with
    this gorgeous... ..."

    Brunettes! another weakness!

    Not flirting, but supermarket conversations.

    Today, people were in my way in the frozen food aisle. Some fat woman
    and a munchkin. The kid was pawing through the frozen strudel
    offerings. Mom said "You can't get all blueberry. Some people don't
    eat blueberry" And I had to say "Yeah, what's wrong wtih those
    people?" She got fed up with the kid and told him to put them all
    back but one. I whispered to him "Get the blueberry" and we went our
    separate shopping ways. Fifteen minutes later, who is next to me at
    the check-out? She said "I think you've started something."

    I like causing trouble, or "learning opportunites", that I can walk
    away from.

    Yesterday, for some reason the cashier started telling me about the
    guy who invented velcro, made a fortune, lost it, made another. The
    woman must have been sixty, working retail, but still has a dream of
    her millions.

    The day before (I go to the grocery store a lot) some woman was in my
    way, looking confused, when I just wanted to grab a bottle of oyster
    sauce. I'm a friendly, helpful guy, so I asked what she was looking
    for. She had $20 of shrimp in the cart, said she wanted to make
    shrimp-fried rice, had a packet of crap in her hand. I showed her
    the back of her packet - dehydrated soy sauce, wheat paste, more
    unpronouncable chemicals. I pointed to the shelf in front of her -
    here's the soy sauce, here's the fish sauce, here's the MSG. Lime and
    ginger the next aisle over. Don't buy the crap. "Well, I used this
    stuff before and it was horrible, but I'll try it again." Some people
    can't be helped.

    Jill,

    Flirting is never a sexual commitment. It's a sexual tension relief
    mechanism that only lasts maybe a few seconds, appreciated by both
    parties involved. Going beyond that involves considerable risk!

    Best,

    Andy

    Maybe I'm just sick of people "hitting on me" when I'm in a store. It's one
    thing to be complimented on an outfit. Definitely another thing to have
    some guy panting over how I look in a pair of jeans. No thanks, dude, not
    interested.

    Not mentioning any names, but when I commented on how beautiful a
    woman's face was, a man said, "I didn't even notice she had a head."

    I don't care if you're flirting, or discussing your leakin' roof -
    just keep the line movin', dude. The person behind you shouldn't have
    had to explain that he was in a hurry, even if he wasn't. It's rude
    to take up a clerk's time when other customers are being delayed.

    Go over to uk.f +d and say that. They have an entirely different
    attitude toward talking to checkers and people in general at the
    grocery store.

    I always knew what I'd do with a fortune if I made it, but I never made
    one. My plan was, if I ever got just a million bucks, was to put it into
    a certificate of deposit and let it draw interest, which would be
    deposited monthly into my checking account. Sure, the million would never
    grow beyond its principle that way, but at least on a 20-year CD drawing
    5% interest, I'd be getting $50,000 a year in free income, minus the
    taxes. Then I could enjoy doing the kind of work I enjoy doing without
    worrying about the fact that the pay sucks. And I wouldn't have to work a
    full 40-50 hours a week, either. I could have worked maybe 25 hours a
    week and avoid the burnout I suffered having worked the occupation for
    38-55 hours a week for four years, plus the hour-long drive to and from
    work.

    I had plans to try, even if it was in vain, to build toward some kind of
    CD by trying to save a thousand dollars a month, but it's hard to save
    when you're paying off debts you had to run up when there wasn't enough
    cash on hand for unavoidable expenses, like having your car fixed when
    your job is delivering pizza.

    > The woman must have been sixty, working retail, but still has a dream of
    > her millions.


    Meh... I'll never see a million unless the economic system changes so that
    everyone makes the same amount of money. Last time I checked, if the
    USA's Gross Domestic Product was distributed as a salary amongst all
    living Americans, including babies, we'd all be getting a check for
    $46,000 a year. I've never made that much in a year. Best I've ever done
    was $30,000 and I had to work my ass off at two jobs to make that.

    Fried rice took me a few tries to get it right. First, I found that the
    cooked rice mustn't have too much moisture in it. So when I made the rice
    in the rice cooker, I didn't use two cups of water for a cup of rice, but
    I only usd about a cup and a quarter. Then I chilled the rice, and while
    the rice was cold, I broked up the lumps with my hands so all the grains
    were separated from each other. And I used oil instead of butter to fry
    it. It just turned out so much better than my previous attempts. Plus, I
    used to have a problem with the scrambled egg sticking to the rice, even
    when I formed a well in the middle to cook the egg in. Now I just
    scramble and fully cook the egg on the side, then dump it into the rice.
    It certainly works out better for me that way.

    I think I used soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and cayenne pepper for
    seasonings and flavors. And for the non-rice foods, I had chicken, onion,
    sweet peas, and little carrot bits I had chopped from baby carrots. I
    just wish I had a wok to cook it in.

    I made fried rice for the first time not long ago. It was fun, and a
    good refrigerator cleaner outer. I also added for seasoning some
    oyster sauce and a tiny bit of sesame oil.

    When I moved to the South, I was unprepared for the friendly way
    strangers would address you. The first times some stranger called me
    Honey or Baby I was almost in shock. Why were these women openly
    flirting with me? The answer is they weren't... they are just being
    friendly.

    People here think nothing of coming up to you in a store and telling you
    how they made something that they see you are buying... or wishing you a
    Good Morning with a smile. I have even had a cashier come out from
    behind her register and give me a hug! Since I am a hair over 6 feet
    tall, I have had strangers politely ask me to please reach something
    from the top shelf for them and that usually leads to a short
    conversation and effusive thanks. Short little old ladies seem to love
    me! <vbg>

    It didn't take me long to get used to this and it sure makes shopping a
    lot more fun.
