Entered the Union. Mar.

I saw the man standing outside the employee entrance door through the security glass. He had a big grin on his face like he was about to sell me a car. I took a deep breath as I pushed the door open just enough to let myself outside. He stood there and the door closed behind me. “Hey, how are you doing?” he asked still smiling broadly.

“Good. Have a good night” I said as I moved past him briskly. He starts to follow me.

“Hey!” he calls out.


“Do you want to be [dramatic pause] a star?”

“Eh.” I said indifferently.

“I will make you a staaahh.”

“Oh?” I said feigning interest as I stepped backwards while looking at him.

“Nah. You don’t have what it takes to be a stah.”

“Aww.” I said crestfallen.

In a related note my place of employment has a psych unit.

Sent via postcrossing to Pei_Hsin.  Who wanted "greetings from..." cards.  I realized I have been sending a lot of these cards out incorrectly.  "Greetings from..." were listed in a lot of people's profiles but it wasn't until now that I realized that they are not asking for these they are asking for this kind.  Which I kinda feel are just dumb.
