Its All About Me.....Today
Holden had the ugliest staff by far, I wonder if that was a marketing ploy so the wives would let the husband go and talk to the staff and Mitibishi tried to have hot girls but they didn't quite cut the grade and looked corse and chunky compared to all the other stands.
Later in the day I went up all the levels in David Jones men’s side and had a nice restful time looking at all the nice things and I saw lots of older gay men working there, and it got me thinking about the history of that store. My guess is that David Jones in the city would have provided employment for gay men probably the whole time it’s been open. Probably there was a secret code, but gradually men would have started coming out in the 70’s. I don’t mean to judge, but there seems to be an element of “The broken down old poof” when I see men over 50 still working in retail. No judgment on men who want to be there but I can’t help but think the reality is a little closer to these old men had dreams once, and in the end the gay life style has taken it’s toll, be it heart ache or drug or alcohol abuse or rejection from their families that has led them to a place where being very good a serving customers is the only thing they can do or handle. It was a little scary for me to see and I don’t put myself above anybody else and it makes me think, I might think I’m bright and wonderful but could that be my future as well?
