Booty Call

I had to call Walmart (yes, the evil Germantown Walmart) to do a favor for a friend. I asked for the "Health and Beauty" department and waited. And waited. And waited.

I was on hold for TWENTY-ONE minutes. Yes, twenty-one minutes. To be honest, I didn't really notice because I was working on The Proposal That Ate My Brain, so it didn't bother me. Plus they had weirdly fascinating ska Xmas music on hold. I don't think "O Holy Night" was really meant to be a skanking dance number. Then again, your mileage may vary.

When one of the associates finally returned to the phone, she said, obviously not really thinking straight, "You still holdin' for health and booty?" I burst out laughing.

She started giggling and said, "Looooord, we ALL waitin' for that!"

Amen, my friends. Amen to that.

May the season bring you all health and booty.

Lots and lots of health and booty.

My kind of store!

BTW - what's with Blogger removing the ability for commenters to link back to their site? I HATE BLOGGER!

I'm not a fan of Wal-Mart (although it's due to their corporate policies rather than their employees) but that is a classic line. Although I doubt I'll be seeing much booty this year since I'm working the whole time. Unless I go to a strip club or something.

Health and Booty - that'd be a good name for a blog.

Wonder if it's copyrighted?

Miss u - come back and visit.
