I work as a checkout chick in a supermarket, so I get lots of time to chat to people while I work, which is always lovely


Anyway, I was working on Saturday and a woman came in and complimented me on the ironing of my shirt. I thanked her and continued to scan her shopping, when she said "Bet you didn't iron it yourself".

It felt so good to be able to say "Yes, I actually did"

GTL?

I like being a checkout chick. I got called a "ray of sunshine" on the same day. Was quite strange really...

I can´t believe she said that after complimenting you. I bet you felt like saying something else in reply, but when dealing with the public you have to bite your tongue a bit. For every customer like that there will be another one come along that´ll pick your enthusiasm straight back up.

I live for comfort..I have no problem walking around in public with holes in my jeans and baggy t-shirts...yes I still take pride in the way I look but in other areas...my hair is groomed and I make sure I look decent but other than that I enjoy wearing what i wear.

When I'm uniform, however, it's an entirely different story

Yep, except I don't have a uniform

I dress fly when the need arises, and have a couple of tight outfits

But I'm all good with a baggy t-shirt and pants hanging round my knees

All of my casual clothes are the crappiest tshirts, jeans, etc. But when it's time to clean up, I go to work. All brand name shirts, ties, suits, shoes, tuxes, etc.

This. It's better to be comfortable and feel great than to dress in what is considered "fashionable" today and feel like you're wearing someone else's skin (so to speak).

I have a wide area of style...i had baggy shirts and jeans, to boot cups and proper collar shirts, I even have some skinny jeans and a couple band tees.
I also have 2 suits
one for weddings, other for the upscale party/meeting.

To be honest, skinny jeans and a band tee is one of my favorite outfits, its just comfortable and I feel fine. Baggy is right behind with, with suits/shorts making me feel like crap.

I don't get it? You're are a chick, so of course you are going to do the ironing? j/k

No... I use the term "checkout chick" loosely.

An ironed shirt is heaps more comfortable than an unironed one.

I'm not a girl? Where'd that come from...

Also, mr soft, it wasn't said insultingly. It was more of a friendly challenge the way she said it. I didn't feel insulted, especially cause I had ironed it myself


jtypin, agreed, skinny jeans and a tshirt is comfy as.

You specifically said "checkout chick." What are you, transgender? There's no reason to call yourself that if you're male.

I think that mislead about 98% of the people who read this thread.

LAF, you do know what "chick" means, right? And this is the internet, we aren't penis detectors. Words are all you've got.

I am fortunate enough to not have to give a damn how I look for work since I work from home. My wardrobe consists of workout shorts and white t's.

You just would've been confused if I'd said "Service Cashier"...

It's a colloquialism that is applied to both males and females here, not in the US?
