Well, Since It’s Supposed To Be A Blog About Letters And All….

Dear Hot Topic Cashier Who Didn’t Know Which State The City Of Chicago Is In,

Dude, really?

I’m kinda sad now.

Yes very sad. Hey congratulations on your miraculous spine surgery and recovery. Yea!!!!!

Scope said...

Do not be too hard on the cashier. The City of Chicago does not know what state it is in. It believes it is in the state of "Chicagoland" and that nothing else exists outside of its borders that matters remotely.

(And technically, "Chicagoland" stretches over into "the Region" of Indiana and it is creeping into south eastern Wisconsin.)

Joshua said...

Yes it is, and I'm so, so very happy that "Chicagoland" is where I was born and raised. Give me the cold and snow over this Atlanta heat any day. Well, not today exactly, but the summer months, yes.

There is a regional joke that people in the Houston, TX area have about Dallas, similar to Scope's earlier comment. Dallas is such a sprawling metropolis that we often affectionately refer to such peripheral boundaries as, say, Denver, or perhaps Huntsville (TX, north of Houston) to be on the fringes of "greater Dallas." Nuff said. -Diane

Chicago? Never heard of it.
And how did that come up in conversation at HT?

What uneducated cretins. Who doesn't know where the state of Milwaukee is?

What??? Having said that, I talked to a woman once who pronounced it "Illi-NOISE" What the eff, lady?

Cora said...

Peach: Thanks!

Scope: Fine, but can I at least feel disgust that after I told him it was in Illinois he didn't know how to abbreviate it - he was typing it in as LI. Lillinois?

Joshua: Ahhh! Another Chicagoan. I'll be joining your club soon. :-)

Diane: We do the same thing in Seattle. EVERYTHING falls under the blanket of "Seattle." Except Tacoma of course. *Gag*

SkyDad: *pat in head* Yes. Yes, it is. Now run along. ;-)

Candy: My pleasure!

Soda & Candy: Exactly *grumble*

Callista: Because I asked him if there are HT's in Chicago and he didn't know. He tried to look it up on the computer for me but had to ask me which state it was in. When I said Illinois, he didn't know how to spell it nor abbreviate it. He actually asked me to step behind the register with him and help him look it up. It was most sad. He looked to be about 30 years old!

Veggie: And I've heard people butcher the name of my state by calling it "Warshington" - where'd the R come from?!

Cora said...

SkyDad: I meant "*pat ON head*" there. Just clarifying. ;-)

Morgan the Muse said...

Wait, you mean, Chicago isn't a state?!

Oh my goodness... that is terrible.

Dear cashier
She's right.
You suck.
Get a map, dude.
Or, look at your DRIVERS LICENSE!

That's why he's working at Hot Topic at 30 years old.
