#FollowFriday: Convenience Store Dreamin

By: Gini Dietrich | July 30, 2010 |

This isn’t my typical blog recommendation, but it’s summer and it’s a great break from reality. Which is why today’s #FollowFriday recommendation is Convenience Store Dreamin.

Written by an old colleague of mine from Fleishman Hillard days (that’s the most I can tell you about her), it’s written about her nights as a convenience store clerk.

I ask you, for a moment, to put yourself in her shoes. You have a career in public relations. You are on the fast track for success. You know exactly where you’re headed. Then the recession hits and you and all of your colleagues are laid off (this might not be hard for some of you to imagine!). You set to work starting a business, but the economy is terrible and you still have to make rent. So you get a part-time job. And voila! Out comes brilliant prose, hysterical satire, and really well written posts about the craziness you see at work.

That’s what this blog is about…and it’s pee in your pants funny. Though she hasn’t posted for a couple of months, it’s well worth going through the former posts for a brain break. Trust me – you will not be disappointed!

I love this blog! - I worked in a small town convenience store when I was in high school. I wish I could say that she is embellishing some of this stuff...unfortunately not.

Very funny stuff Gini. I hope she decides to write some more. Perhaps this will spur her on to further musings? I hope so.
