I blew it again. Or I'm just a pushover. I don't know.

I had to get a haircut today. We have a family photo opportunity tonight so I have to look presentable. We won't all be together for at least 3 years so we have to do this.

Anyway... on my way through the mall I got cornered by a kiosk girl who wanted to ask me a question. She wanted to know about my nails and the roughness of my fingers. UPS has all but destroyed my hands. My fingers are rougher now and only 3 of my nails aren't completely messed up.

She went through her whole sales pitch and buffed up 2 of my roughest nails and rubbed some lotion into my skin. I have to say that those parts do feel a bit nicer. And those 2 nails are presentable now. She was nice. She was very pretty. I liked having a girl mess with my hands. I bought her damn hand stuff for a little over $20 even though I'm never going to use it. I didn't quite know how to say no after she gave me the full demonstration.

I still choked on all other aspects. No name, no real conversation. no nothing. I'm that sucker that's born every minute.

So -- you made a connection of some sort. Go back after you've thought of something to say and talk to her. The fact that she followed you and spent that time to apply the damn stuff rather than just try to sell it to you is encouraging. I think you're your own worst critic silence. Don't be so hard on yourself.

Sucker Silence?

Oh, I think not. I think very kind and compassionate.

That woman is trying so hard to make an honest living. You gave her your attention when so many have pushed her away, or taken her time freely as though entitled and given her nothing.

You probably made her day.

How much is that worth?

hmm. I really couldn't recommend the products she sold me. By the time I got to work tonight, the fingertip that she treated turned hard as a rock. So much for softening the skin. It's now my hardest part of my hand. One of my polished nails is still OK, but the one that was bad to begin with chipped and tore apart again. Now I'm back to wearing a bandaid on that finger to keep the rest of the nail on.

On the bright side, we had a short night tonight and I got my paycheck for last week. Not bad with all the extra hours I've been putting in.

Silence,

Why are your hands so bad? All from UPS? Would gloves help?

So, what are you going to do with your big paycheck? Something you have in mind to buy? Or just bank it for now?

Regarding the lotion woman. That has to be a hard job, so actually I'm glad that you were nice enough to not only listen to her spiel, but purchase the products as well. Don't think of it as being a sucker. Perhaps keep it on hand as a gift for some one.

If you could do it over again, what would you say to her conversation wise?

I'd say anything. I really didn't say much. She did a lot of talking.

All money is being saved for my eventual move out of the parents house.

And yes. My hands are all fucked up from UPS. When you load trucks you will bang your hands over and over again.

Silence,

I have a feeling when you finally find the woman who is good enough for you to talk to (now, will she know that you have all of these on-line mother hens that are going to want to know everything about her?) - you are gonna blow her sock off with your humor.

Glad to hear that you are saving your $$$ to move out.
