Hahaha...no really though. I started a job yesterday at a pawn shop. It's actually way more awesome than I expected. Of course you get the crazies, and the idiots who think their crap is worth hundreds of dollars when it really is just that...CRAP. But the job is easy, and the people I work with are pretty awesome. Mostly I'm just happy to be working again. I loved being home with DS, but I feel so much better about myself now. Plus, now I can work towards getting off PA, which is awesome!!!

So...yay for me!

Ugh, I worked at a pawnshop!

My favorite was when people would come to pawn their guns and NOT unload them first. Yeah, thanks...

And just bc something says 14k does not mean it's real gold!

Girl.... Just wait! Lmao! The stories I could tell you!

When someone would argue and bargain with you over a pawn amount. You give in. Give them their $100 and then they go and put a TV or computer on layway with the exact $100 you gave them! Ummm... Isn't pawning for when you NEED cash??? I think of light bills, sick kids, etc... And then they buy something in the store! SMH

Congrats! I love watching the people at pawn shops. The other day I saw a lady get into a screaming match with an employee because he didn't offer enough for the defective keyboard she was trying to sell. Then another guy brough in five GPS units to try and pawn, it was the fifth day in a row he'd done it.

LOL!! Luckily where I live (MA) you cannot sell any weapons at a pawn shop.

And I know alllll about the fake gold. I actually had a 3 hour seminar today on how to test if gold is real or not.

I'm sure I'll have a whole ton of crazy stories to share :)

Oh girl, no! I wasn't talking about you ;)

I'm talking about the 38729572047 people you will see in any given week who firmly believe that a stamp is the word of god! Lmao ;)

Have fun! It is! Interesting group, but fun!
