please post this video



I wish i could.. i have it packed away somewhere on a VHS tape, and a couple of my family members have it on VHS as well.. the psychic hotline commercial ran for 3 or 4 years in the late 90s, usually on basic cable at 2 or 3 in the morning... One of these days I’ll find my old VHS tapes, and take them to wherever you go to convert them to streaming (any advice on the best place to go, or how to get that done, would be appreciated)- then I’ll gladly (cringe-ly) post it.

I remember :)



Ha, yep.. I’m trying not to be too specific on here, but there were actually a couple different places.. the one you remember , where my title was ‘Floor Manager’, but i was basically a glorified bouncer.. and another place down the street that was a little more of a, shall we say, ‘traditional’ place. :hihi:

Maybe you could be a film critic, you’d be great at it with all the movies you’ve seen.

Yeah, I have a feeling we’re going to see a distinction between those who locked into the career in their 20s and then chumps like me
All I can say is that this is a great thread idea! :grin:
It certainly helps me to feel much better about my sorry self.

Yeah. It was a weird place for an 18 year-old boy to work. But, I did find all the merchandise interesting. I do recall that we had a bra specialist. I actually worked in the one that was in the Riverwalk and the one that was in the former New Orleans Center when they were building both new. I was unloading trucks on the dock and putting together fixtures. Then I kept working at the Riverwalk store after they opened putting up stock and unloading trucks.
