I have little to report and little time to report it in. Here are a few things I did this weekend to make myself heard:
- After casting meaningful looks at three Best Buy employees and being ignored by each one, I yelled “Excuse me! Can you help us?” to the retreating blue-shirted back of a fourth employee. Wonder of wonders, she stopped.
- At PC Richards, I interrogated the salesman on whether the Wifi-ready DVD player will really bring us Netflix on our TV, so that I can watch unlimited reruns of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly. I made it very clear that I am not to be trifled with. On my way out I said, “I’ll be seeing you soon if it doesn’t work.” He was totally intimidated. Or possibly bored. Hard to tell.
- In Starbucks, I changed my order while the barista was filling it. I know it’s ridiculous to chalk this up to bravery, but really, I have this thing about not being a bother. So I was a bother to the barista and got the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate instead of the tea. Yum.
Ok, so maybe not bad-ass, but definitely less wimpy than usual.
