The Banana Republic of Beauty

As anyone that can stand to listen to me complain knows, I hate my job. I've also been telling anyone that will listen that I'm going to quit my job and I'm going to fold sweaters at Banana Republic. I can't help but believe that folding sweaters is therapeutic and much much better than shelving books. And also the discount is better at Banana then at Barnes & Noble. Yes 30% off of books is nice, but 50% off of clothes is nicer. And besides Banana is way more overpriced than B&N.

The only glitch in this plan is that the other day when I was at my local Banana they had a bunch of new people I had never seen before. (Yes, I'm there enough to recognize new employees, sad isn't it?) The problem was that all of the female new hires were blonde, skinny, and tall. So essentially not me at all.

I need a plan B. Maybe J. Crew is more open to diversity in their staffing.
