So, it looks like I may have done that thing again, where I vanish off into the wilds of the internet for long periods of time. The last few months have been pretty odd for me, since as I mentioned in my last post I quit my full time job as a reporter and moved back to my native hometown of Pittsburgh. Wait, did I mention the Pittsburgh part? Lord, it’s been so long, who even knows? If I didn’t mention that part, lets just assume I did and move on.
To make ends meet, I’ve picked up a part time job working at a local Best Buy. It’s not glamorous work… I am what is known as the Asset Protection Specialist (Associate? Champion? Not sure what it is at the moment… Best Buy has a tendency to change the titles they dish out to their employees pretty frequently). Basically, this means I stop people when they’re walking out the door and check their receipts to make sure they’re not actually stealing that 60 inch TV they are nonchalantly wheeling out the door. Since I’m the first person people see when they walk in the door, it also means I get to answer some of the weirder questions, like “where is the jewelry section?” and “what do you mean this isn’t Bed Bath and Beyond?”
