Swell Time

Moving forward, just not sure where we're going, but at least we're having a swell time when we do it.

Got sprayed


I wonder if the person who gets paid to stand in a department store and spritz people with perfume enjoys it. Are they appreciated for bringing the joy of fragrance or hated for unwanted whiffs. Is it a job with a lot of human interaction? Or is it a job where people walk by, taking care to make sure eye contact is not exchanged? After work, when the perfume person goes out with friends, the conversation must be interesting. Today was tough, I met my quota today, sprayed 100 people. But it was tough; I had to chase a few around the store. We don’t get credit for a spray unless there is definite skin contact. The goal is to make sure the smell not only sticks but follows the person around with them for at least half a day.

    I never before thought twice about them. They DO have an unpleasant job – most people just keep walking. How awful to be rejected all day 😢. Wow.

    Do you watch Modern Family? There’s an episode where one character cracks and starts chasing a perfume sprayer around with his own perfume. Seems like a bummer of a job in real life too.
