New Job, Old Company

I've got a gig doing semi-full time work at the local Sign*A*Rama.

First official day was yesterday.

We're laying out the vinyl for a 15 foot wide sign for a Vietnamese

restaurant. Funny, the place is called "Pho' 88 Vietnamese Cusine"

(I guess 88 is a lucky number in Vietnam) anyway we're listening

to Rock 101 and G&R comes on... "Sweet Child" which is my all

time favorite BTW.... anyway I say under my breath something

like "sweet it's Guns & Roses"

Here's the funny part, the asian guy who works with me is amazed

that I LIKE G&R so I'm like yeah... who didn't like G&R in the late

80s early 90s??? I still love G&R.

So his next question to me, with a stone cold serious face:

Did you ever have a Mullett?

I was like uhhh... not in this lifetime. I also proceded to tell him that

not all people who listen to 70s & 80s Rock are brainless hicks.

Yeah... mentioned the Camaro well before that.

This kid's idea ofd a cool car is a Civic or Integra. :rolleyes:

The owner, my boss is from Singapore so I expected she drove the Toyota Sienna

that was parked outside or perhaps the Rav4 that was in the parking lot, turns out

she drives a navy blue Cadillac SRX (V6). Says she loves it.

Congrats, and good luck, on the new job!

Growing up in a strict household, I had a mullett - but only because I couldn't grow my hair any longer! I miss those days...

The allmighty mullet rules! :lol:

It could have been fun to play into his stereoyping though...

Speaking of Asian restaurants there's one in Florida (don't remember if it's in Boca Raton or Deerfield Beach) called 'Phuket Thai'... I find that name amusing...

It's an actual place in Thailand...on the beach, I think...kind of a resort.

Too bad I won't go anywhere near Thai food...twice was enough...give me Greek or Italian food, anytime.

Yeah, Phuket is a place with those praradise-like endless beaches. But the idea of pronouncing that as 'f@#k-it Thai' cracks me up :lol:

(EDIT: no racial insult to Thai people intended).

Did you read my reply on your spring break thread? It was all in Portuguese and if you had any difficulties please tell me and I'll help you translate it :AH-HA_wink:
