B.O.B.

alright. i work at a bakery in orem utah, with a bunch of crazy people.

there's the kid that just hit puberty and last week revealed the fact that he had never met a homosexual. i let him know that i not only had met hundreds, but was related to several in addition. he was BLOWN AWAY that i had actually found homosexuals in Utah, as if it was more impossible than a meteor striking us down in the middle of that very conversation.

the next is my "crew manager", who is pretty much a jerk. everything is the worst thing you could have ever done. running out of paper in the credit card machine is the worst thing you can ever do. being too frantic about getting an order out is absolutely uncalled for. and you never, EVER ask to go the restroom. now THAT. that is unhuman.

but nothing beats bob. bob is the manager of the entire franchise. everyone knows the story of his life. he was raised by the typical disfunctional american family, but lived at his best friend's house who was italian. he believes he has a cure for everything. the cure for world hunger("everyone throws away enough food to feed the entire world, and then some), the cure for sadness("you CHOOSE to be sad"), and the cure for every other problem anyone could come across. forget scriptures, bob has got the answer. last week he let me know that if any one were to come in the store with a sword, he is amazing with a machette, and could chop him to pieces. usually people bring guns to scare with, but apparently in the baking business, the sword is the choice weapon. he believes no one has real passion, everyone is faking it. in a word, he's my work. he explains the craziness. aaaaaaaaaaaah!

Blunt.

I truly adore blunt people. I was working the other night and although this situation may seem extremely awkward, it wasn't at all.

I was in charge of the drive thru window and a man drove up with his wife. i gave him the six eclairs, two cookies, and four slices of cheesecake he had ordered, and his wife butted in exclaiming that they were all for her because she just couldn't get enough sweets. the man then turned to me and explained that she was pregnant. i gave an excited reply, him then adding...with another man's baby.

the strange thing was that they both sort of giggled after he said this. you could tell he was being completely honest, but apparently after the nine month pregnancy they had made their peace with it. however, i still didn't know what to say.


A random addition...my friend kim is from taiwan, but was adopted by two americans. my friend savannah had hung out with kim a bunch and met her parents several times. one day i was talking about the fact that kim had been adopted and savannah had a heart attack. she had no clue and couldn't believe it. how could she not have? i mean seriously....her parents were BOTH WHITE. it's not like her parents were in the hospital and the doctor came in and said, "well guys, you're having a girl. and she's asian." haha.

anyway. that was really random. adios.
