So my new job has a catch.

edited October 2007 in Social Entropy++
I just recently started at my new awesome minimum-wage supermarket seafood counter job.

I can feel your jealousy already.

But here's the problem - I smell like fish all the damn time. Seriously, like all the time. I got off work six hours ago, took a shower, washed my hands several times making dinner (not fish), and now the honey wheat pretzels I'm snacking on taste vaguely fishy.

Someone tell me there's an antidote to fish-smell-itis.

    too bad spray deodorant makes you smell like ass

    Yeah, Axe and Tag both make you smell like a 14 year old and/or a candy store.

    God I wish I could wear real gloves. the ones we're supplied with for now (the store's still renovating, and we're going through a bunch of the old stuff) are these shitty vinyl gloves that are far too small for me and get brittle when exposed to ice.

    Like, you know, the ice that's surrounding all of the fish.

    With that said, I actually enjoy the job quite a bit. It's really nice seafood, and it's fun introducing underexperienced yuppies to delicious homemade food.

    Get a new job. All the Axe body sprays in the world couldn't use their shit smelling scents to get fish off of you. Tomato juice may work, but that may be going to the extreme for a minimum wage job.

    You guys would be surprised at how many 13 year olds buy Axe and Tag, thinking this shit will get them laid. At the store I work at, I want to say for every adult buying a can of these sprays, there is at least 12 kids getting the same thing.

    And when the kids get it, they spray themselves over their clothing a bit first, and then grab a different can to buy so it's like they got a free fresh booster.

    Actually, come to think of it, that was the same kid who tried stealing condoms too.
