FRESH BLOOD ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


Something's percolating at Our Favorite Starbucks and it's not just the coffee. Rumor has it that Manager Extraordinaire Gabe is on the prowl for new employees. That's why I wasn't surprised this morning to find one candidate (pictured above) filling out a job application and another, just yesterday, sitting with Gabe for an interview (pictured below).


A third candidate (pictured below), listened intently during what appeared to be an orientation session. I assume the discussion went something like this: "Welcome to the exciting world of 7th and Montana. Now that you've signed on the dotted line, there are a few things you should know: (1) Always smile at the Jittery Nutcase, especially when he's waving a cup of Hot Chocolate in your direction; (2) Don't take your eyes off the Newspaper Display, not even for a minute; (3) Be nice to the Superheros, you never know when you'll need friends in high places; (4) Don't believe the Bulgarian Vulgarian ... she is not in charge around here; (5) The Fishing Pole in the back room belongs to the Gorton's of Gloucester Fisherman, you'll know what to do with it when the time comes; (6) Don't laugh at the Bicyclists, they spend a lot of time and energy squeezing into their Lycra Suits; (7) Watch out for the Blogger; (8) Don't feed the Psychopaths; (9) Humor Our Favorite City Councilman ... tell him you live to sell RED cards; (10) The Apple Fritters are for emergency use only."

I'd apply but I don't think they'd appreciate me drinking all their profits.

Maybe you can publish a User's Manual for 7th and Montana!

I chuckled at #7!

Hugs, Beth

Well Marty, I tell ya!...That's quite a list of do's and don't. But if they can handle the list the rest is a piece of fritter!

It's good that 7th and Montana is doing what it can for the economy, even if they do insist that you smile.
