Before March

I said his girlfriend would eventually get a job at the mall with us because she constantly hangs out there all day with her kids.

And I said when that happens you can bet your ass I’m out of there. Yeah, before they decided to tell us when they were opening I got a new job away from all that bullshit — like we knew I would.

Because I’ve said, there’s only so much corrupt bullshit I will take. I guess I’ve met my quota when great old coronavirus came out and struck our world. I learned to take a great opportunity when it comes across me. You know how many jobs I turned down for the mall? Too many. Was it worth it? Absolutely not. Let’s not get into the owner not wanting to pay workers and me having to sue him when I had my baby for pocketing my PFL. All while all these stores are leaving and they can’t keep up with the requirements to keep running, it’s surprising they gIt the flag to be open. Probably lied their asses off.

Anyway, yeah that’s all behind me. The new supervisor with his girlfriend he probably fucks in all the old places I fucked ‘Dan’ haha. He had an issue with us even talking yet it was okay for him to sexually assault me numerous times with his girlfriend nearby!? The only reason why he got his position is by snitching on my sisters boyfriend and getting him fired. He has no talent or knowledge of the things that need to be fixed in the mall. I guess if you successfully kiss ass and rat on people you deserve a promotion in those places. I guess that’s why now I’m making as much as you and not working there.

The mall was

the first one I went too as a kid
It had a ‘magic’ fountain back then

the place I went too as a teenager to get all my school clothes (they had stores back then)

where I met my future husband online from at dating website for the first time

my place of employment for three years

the place I was working at when my mother was diagnosed with cancer

where I got involved with someone I didn’t know was a satanist until he told me

where I was after I received a phone call she was dead, clocked in and out of work that day upset

where I my supervisor and I fell in love and had a fucked up relationship

the place I was working at when I was pregnant and had to leave when I was in labor

job I returned too after having a baby

job I worked with my sister and got to see here several days a week

also the job the owner tried to fuck me over numerous times and pocketed my PFL and I sued him

the place with a toxic environment and shitty new supervisor that also sexually assaulted with his girlfriend nearby

the place that wanted me back during this COVID shit part time (less money, less time with my daughter) and after everything, I didn’t see why I should it was a good place once years ago…

and so I left and got a new one

Working at a dying mall on Black Friday

… Or any Saturday in the year.

1. I work for THE MALL, not a company or a store.
2. It’s just as busy as a Saturday when there is an event going on — lots of foot traffic, not a lot of messes or spending going on.
3. But the tenants are equally annoying and expect you to drop everything to sweep up some dirt.
4. Yes, I work here — no I’m not walking around with a broom for my health!
5. No we’re not hiring! Unless you’re maintenance, we apparently like to hire idiot men that do nothing but sit back here all day. Don’t send a resume, you have to be related to/friends with someone that works here to get a job!
6. I don’t want to pick up your wrappers because you’re too LAZY to walk 2 inches to throw it in the trash!
7. Realize NOTHING here is on sale! They had the same 10% off for MONTHS!
8. That store hasn’t been here in over a decade.
9. No I don’t know nor care what each store sells.
10. No I don’t know where the store that left 5 months ago went nor care!
11. I don’t keep tabs on shit.
12. Someone broke into your car? What do you want me to do? I’m not security. Security is just as useless. Call the cops on your cell phone.

Brands that were more relevant in high school

Hollister
If you didn’t wear at least a shirt from there, you might as well sit in a corner. You’d even be an outcast to the outcasts.

Today: You see the store around in malls and a few middle schoolers wearing it. I wonder if the reputation ‘hollister is for skinny people’ had anything to do with it?

 

Hot topic
All the cool outcasts shopped there, just not you.

Today: Of course they still exist but where? They’re not in every mall. Should you see one? You may go in for body jewelry or a cool T-shirt, maybe — but you can get that shit cheaper elsewhere!

 

Old Navy
The only socially acceptable place (besides Gap) to buy your clothes if you can’t afford Hollister. Why? It’s still from the mall. An “old navy” shirt means you didn’t get it from Walmart or Kmart.

Today: You probably still shop there for a few things? Why? Because there not ridiculously priced and have sales.

 

Gap
The brand preppy kids with money wore. Did you care if you wore it, nope. Their clothes weren’t that cute.

Today: A grandma probably shops there.

 

Aeropostale
If you didn’t shop there at least once, you weren’t a teenager. Hell an outcast of the outcasts again.

Today: They still exist? Where? I haven’t seen them in a mall over a decade.

 

American Eagle
People loved to get their jeans from until they found out their teacher did too.

Today: They still exist? They’re also leaving malls.

 

Victoria’s Secret pink
It didn’t really start to become a thing until I left high school in 2008. It was mainly a thing for college kids.

Today: 40 year old women and 13 year olds are wearing it! Seems like, the last couple years not so much!

 

Forever 21
Some popular snobs people wanted to be like shopped there.

Today: You realize those popular snobs didn’t have money, they could get those clothes on sale there. Hell, you’ve shopped there more after high school — until they started making most of their shirts crop tops! You’re not ‘forever 21’ anymore, you’re 30!

 

Today
The only brand name stuff I own is from Victoria’s Secret/Pink,(because their clothes are worth the money and cute) some Under Armour and Adidas. I only spend money on crap I’m going to wear, keep awhile, and doesn’t break the bank. The fuck I care where it’s from? I don’t. It’s eventually going to end up in the trash or donated. I’m also a pretty basic Target mom…
