My local Rite Aid always seemed to hate teenagers. Even when we were customers. If a group of us walked in at the same time they would send security to follow us.
I live in an area where, outside my town, there is one town of similar size about 20 minutes away, and a mall 30 minutes away. So I'm basically stuck in town if I don't want to be spending half my pay checks on gas money. Within town I'm extremely limited. We don't have any of those ice cream places you mentioned. My town is not at a terrible low, but it's not doing fantastically either. Our "main street" is pathetic, 1/3 of the storefronts closed...

Half my friends work at Stop Rite and that's a last resort.

I was at McDonald's the other day and this lady with FOUR KIDS!!! was looking for a job too. just for anyone that's interested, interviews are every Wednesday from 2 to 4pm at that branch
Hey, I was in H&M yesterday too.

But yeah, there are so many people looking for jobs, which is why it's so hard for people my age.

Nice! Ooh, the dress with the stripe down the middle? I saw that one yesterday.

I bought a dress yesterday too. A prom dress. Except I am totally defying all the horribly lame prom "traditions" and am not really wearing a dressy dress. I got this from Fossil:

http://www.fossil.com/webapp/wcs/sto...Path=WC4829600

All the dressy dresses were too expensive, considering even though I like wearing nice clothing I'm not crazy about dresses. The only cheap dressy ones were the tacky or the slutty ones, so I decided to go for a different style. It was on sale for $50. I figure I can dress it up with accessories.

Re: The new (and improved) Djokoforum chat thread!

I just must share something very disturbing to me.

It disturbs me beyond belief to go to the ATP website and see the headline "Ferrero upsets Hanescu". My beloved Juanqui in such a state that beating Hanescu on clay is considered an upset I cannot accept his not being top class. He was my favorite before Novak. that is all.

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Re: The new (and improved) Djokoforum chat thread!

Speaking of like... clothing.

I LOVED MY OUTFIT YESTERDAY.

It was one of those outfits where when you put it on, you know you look awesome someone told me I looked like I stepped out of an Urban Outfitters catalog, which is like... such a nice compliment

Let me see if I can post what I was wearing

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Re: The new (and improved) Djokoforum chat thread!

Bah, I cannot show you the dress because H&M's website does not show all of their merchandise

But it was really cute
