I'm looking forward to it!

The big one I found was the femur (thigh bone) of a hypsilophodontid dinosaurs... and it wasn't very big, by dinosaur standards. Hypsilophodonts were little bipedal herbivores that were generally about a metre or two long (three to six feet).

I don't like being pushy, either. I remember my mom, when she worked at a Pier 1, talked about how the higher ups were constantly giving out memos to the employees to push these "instant credit" sorts of things on customers. My mom did manage to rack up quite a few of those over her time there, but the people who signed up for them did so because they wanted them and my mom didn't force it on them, they liked her sales pitch style. But the higher ups wanted the employees to pretty much do anything possible to try and get customers to accept these, forgetting that, like you said, customers don't like pushy salespeople. And these cards, many people either didn't need them, or it was just one more card they'd have to add to their endless list of store/credit/debit cards. They probably feel like they'll have to pay something eventually or the store's going to have some sort of hold on them for this "gift" or whatever, and even if that's not the case, I can see where they'd be suspicious and wary.
Bah... I hate those cards. I don't really want loads of cards in my wallet, and I don't go to any clothing shop often enough to make it feel worthwhile. Good on your mum for not pushing them!

We have some cool, free offers at our store, too, but if a customer says no to one, I let it go at that. So does everyone else.
And good on you too!

You say "fangirling" like it's a bad thing .

Seriously, hehe, oh, yeah, the temptation is strong, isn't it? YouTube is frighteningly addictive that way.
Well... it's been a while since I've fangirled about anything... well, there was Doctor Who in general, I suppose... and... uh... I know you're never too old... but... and... er... *cough* Anyway.

Oh it is. I spent pretty much the whole of yesterday reading about megafauna extinction (that was FB and Wikipedia's fault), then reading about Hamlet, and then watching David Tennant on You Tube. Curse that "related content" section!!

Right. Practice. Now.

Awesome. That's a pretty interesting find no matter what you're looking for. It's always cool to find out about what lived alongside the dinosaurs, how they managed to survive amongst them (and you realize how long some of the animals we're familiar with today have lasted as a result and it's sorta mind-boggling).

I like it when people get all geeked out about stuff like that. You learn something new, and it's a different sort of hobby/interest to talk about .

You prove my point exactly! The higher ups should talk to customers like you more often.

Also, thanks .

LOL. Yeah. Something like that .

Haha, oh, god, yeah, it's scary how the "related content" stuff can get you sucked in so quickly! All I do is go online to read/watch one or two things, and then before I know it I've got, like, 10 tabs open and it's 3 hours later and I'm pouring through all sorts of stuff and thinking, "Ooh, that looks interesting!" or "Just one more article/video, I swear...". They've gotten good at making you stick around, those internet people.

Hope practice goes well if/when you get around to it . Hehe.

Instead of studying I sat in the garden for about two hours with a cat on my lap. Hey I am supposed to brush her daily, as per the doctor's orders. Not my fault she stays for two hours, right?

Yea I'm NOT a morning person. This only increases my early bird issues. Especially when it's timed before my exam week.
