I presume this is you shooting pieces of Monday at someone/something. I only hope 1)it was at an annoying customer and 2)you packed glitter and macaroni fragments into those shells along with the Monday pieces.

1) in part it was at an lj person who made me cry sunday night. my new policy is: if you are someone i primarily know from lj and you make me cry with lj, you will no longer be my lj friend. thus, said individual is no longer my lj friend.

but holy moly, was the bookstore infested with annoying customers on monday. i can't even tell you.

2) oh yeah. glitter and pasta a go go.

Do you ever say to someone, "Hi, welcome to ____!" and they respond with "I'm just looking around!" And do you ever want to grab their face in your hands and growl at them, "I ONLY FUCKING SAID HELLO" ?

i had the exact opposite today! we gotta say hi! so i said "hi!" and i'm in the back of the bookstore, where the air conditioning is broken, and the distributor put about two dozen of these heavy, spiral bound plastic planners in one of my kids boxes. so sweat is pouring off me, i have a wobbly stack of planners up to my chin and the customer i said hi to says, "hey, where's that, you know that, eggers book, i think... heartbreak..." and i know what she's talking about, of course, and i even THINK i know where it is, so i walk her over to lit and we look at the eggers books. and it is not there. so i take my whole stack of planners over to info and try to get one of my coworkers to ASSIST THE CUSTOMER, but they are not thinking that i need help apparently, so someone just says, "yeah, that's over in bio," at the exact moment a quarter of my planners jump out of the pile. fortunately, a coworker i hadn't seen ran interference and took her over to bio for me, so there wasn't a ....plannerlanche.

but usually, yeah, people are just on autopilot with whatever "dismiss the person who will try to take my money" phrase they can think of. 'i'm just waiting for my wife!' is a big one.
