This girl at work today. Looked about my age. She and her boyfriend approached me to inquire as to the whereabouts of birth control. I told her. 5 minutes later she comes back. "Can you help us over there?" she asks. I'm not sure if I successfully masked the wave of discontent that washed over me, but I said "sure" and followed her over there. She started out with that "where is the birth control" question again. I did a general arm wave in the direction of the huge wall of contraceptives directly in front of us. But she wasn't having it. "No, birth control."
"Condoms?" I ask.
At this point, her boyfriend gave us his intellectual contribution to the conversation: "No. No condoms."
So while I was sneering at him, she grabs the contraceptive films holds them up to me and says, "I can stick this on me?"
I told her no. No. It goes inside you actually. To which she replied, "So you can't even feel it, right? The box says you can't feel it."
"I don't know. I assume so. I've never used them before." And after I'd somehow been conned into saying whether or not I'd used vaginal films as a means of contraceptive in my lifetime, I started looking around for the MTV Boiling Point crew. Surely if I put up with her crap for two more minutes, I would make a hundred dollars and could thus go home for the night.
But no crew emerged. Instead she told me about a patch she'd seen on TV which prevents babies. Did we have it? I explained that one has to see a doctor to be given such a magical baby preventing patch. What about the pills? Doctor, I says.
So finally they left with their films. I am upset for two reasons.
1. I did not receive a hundred dollars for having to deal with them.
2. Films aren't very effective against pregnancy. Especially when the woman using them wishes to stick them on her ass.

I can barely believe the idiocy of some people. It's scary sometimes, to the point where I wish that Darwinian Theory was more prominant in our societies. Weed out the weak, only the strong will survive.

MTV actually does stuff like that? I thought all that was broadcast was Britney, NSYNC, and other obnoxious trype..?

yes. my favorite episode involved someone following a transvestite around blaring "dude looks like a lady" on a boombox.
but hello, nsync are so over.

i would have told them that pulling out is the most effective method of birth control

yesterday while at job number two, i had a customer who kept repeatedly buying ONE thing at a time and paying with a ton of coins. around 5 times, she bought something, each time only buying ONE wine glass, ONE shot glass, ONE tumbler, etc.

what's funny is that i was waiting for my 100 dollars, too.
i don't call it job "number 2" for nothing.

there is never a better time to break a shot glass and stab a person than this.

And do you know how aware I am that I spell it wrong? Every time I spell it I think "heres another word I'm spelling wrong" but I've been spelling it wrong for so long I can't ever hope to fix it.
