    I walked outside this morning and thought, "Down in Westchester, a man(ton) is shaking with rage."

    it is truly fucking awful. I left for the pool at 6:45 and it was already just wretched.

    Saw a fellow walking down the street with a line of sweat darkening the ass crack of his pants.

    This is why I never sit in the subway.

    Days like today make me glad that my office has a business casual dress in the warmer months.

    I even wore golf pants and polo on my commute to the office, then changed, a few times when we were in the 100's.

    I've come to the sad realization that whenever I'm in a Manhattan Duane Reade or CVS, I no longer shop based on what I want or need, rather shopping decisions are based on what I feel least dicked over on when it comes to price.

    CVS has the best price on national brand cereals that I've seen in NYC, especially when they inevitably go on sale.

    I've never found anything at Duane Reade to be "inexpensive".

    noted on the cereal, even though I don't really eat cereal. My cereal consumption is more late night drunken "oh man, Reeces Puffs would be awesome right now."


    I was at CVS earlier in need of Red Bull, and I got excited when I saw Gushers. Then I saw they were $4, which is a little bit more than the $0.88 that they cost at Target.

    every drug store in NYC, no matter what the chain, is staffed by the most incompetent people in the city and it takes hours to pay and get out.

    So true, watching them, "work" is like watching a car crash in slow motion.

    I'd rather deal with a retarded person at the register than those stupid self-service machines at CVS. They're awful.

    Our summer business casual dress code ended last week. I just wore chinos, shirt and tie today...too hot for anything else.

    My first job was a cashier at CVS. :lookaround:
