A Learning Expereince
    #1472424 - 04/19/03 03:35 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

I work at a grocery store. It is one of the best places to observe human behavior. The best is watching people uh huh and yeah to people they clearly dont want to be talking to. Anyway, one thing that working there has made me realise is that eeeverything a parent does with thier kid is a learning experience. Whether they realise it or not. Even simple things like buying groceries the parents ideas are being imposed so much. Next time your shopping anywhere where kids and parents are and just listen. being told "this one's cheaper we'll get this one" or "check the first three ingredients to see if its healthy first" over and over again can have a huge unnoticed impact. I just find this a trip

Go through the orange yesterday

I watched intently for a while to both sides, infront of me and behind me.
I was impressed to learn there was another way to look... UP!
More impressive still was the fact that there were beautiful stars in this direction
Most amazing fact of all was the prospect of another direction when I was done with up. DOWN! Which, based on the feel through my toes would be a fine sandy beach!

Ive worked in a fair few different factories and I notice that each one has their own thing. Like one factory u had most women smokers and only 3 blokes (including me) at others almost everyone smokes. others hardly anyone. also I worked in this section the other day where everyone whistled. u dont tend to get many whistlers also one factory where most people would sing along to the radio. anyway, whats it all about?

Yes, parents are our primary agents of socialization. A lot of people don't really notice it, but our parents have a HUGE impact on the way we live our lives when we are older. Even if we hate our parents and rebel against them, we cannot escape their influence.

so superfine were you saying that the parents will sub con over emphasise it when they say things like "this ones cheaper" so as to make sure it gets through to the kids

The people at supermarkets are for the most part materialists who mope around looking for something to satisfy them in their dull lives. Like my mother, they spend too much time going places to buy shit they don't need and they end up wasting too much time to where they have no time to enjoy life.

You hear those bitchy mothers with a few bratty kids yelling at their kids at the store? I see it all the time. Some start to do nothing anymore and just let their kids do whatever they want because the kids aren't learning the right way to behave. It's sad really.

What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

oh damn, now i remember why i love the shroomery

"they all seem so fake to me,
the store is like this huge soap opera, and you just always here all this gossip and shit...
makes me mad sometimes..."
exaclty the way i feel. I especially take notice of this when i'm baked. Sometimes i just want to snap and yell "shut the fuck up i don't care about your fake fucking life, you goddamn fake person, shut up and let me eat my chicken in peace", haha, i do love the grocery store tho. gives me plenty of time to think while loading shelves.


"so superfine were you saying that the parents will sub con over emphasise it when they say things like "this ones cheaper" so as to make sure it gets through to the kids"
Completely didn't think about that but i guess its true.
