The Showcase of Depravity

This is the long hard truth. It goes extra deep.

"Comedy's a dead art form. Now tragedy, that's funny." The Showcase of Depravity showcases... depravity. Wisdom and humor from the perspective of a few disgruntled (& sexy) video store professionals.

isnt Gordon that black dude on Seasame Street? awesome!

there is this nice old man that comes into the store all the time (..ALL the time) and he is very sweet and polite, but he continually calls me GORDON instead of JORDAN. At one time he called me Jordan and I'm not sure why he changed it.
But he is so sweet that i dont have the heart after all this time to tell him he is calling me the wrong name.
thing is, it drives me totally nutz. i cant stand it and every one knows that and thinks its hilarious.

one time i asked jeff to wait until this old guy came up to the counter, and once he did to loudly call me JORDAN so he would know without embarassment that he was wrong and would simply change what name he called me.

but jeff, being the weasel he is, decided instead of call me GORDON really loudly so this old man would think he was definatley correct and continue to call me GORDON.

now, here's something funny that happened recently:
this old guy came in and i put up with him using the wrong name as usual... when he came in he said "hey Gordon how's it going?" and then went to look for a video. But when he came up to the counter he definately called me JORDAN! he distinctly used the name Jordan and i thought "THANK THE LORD he finally found out he was wrong and is going to use the right name despite Jeff's efforts"
but then as he was leaving and i said "have a good day Mr. ____" he goes
"you too, have a good day Jordan!...

Gordon..

Have a good day Gordon!"
and then he left before i could tell him he was right with the Jordan!
What on earth would make him suddenly change the name he called me MID-GOODBYE!? he said one name, and then the other... and then switched back to the wrong name. question is.. why did he say Jordan if he has been calling me Gordon for so long? but more importanly, why did he suddenly switch back to Gordon as if to try out a new name and then confirm the old one...

it makes no sense


AHH! will this torture never end? i cant just tell him!

hopefully he is reading the blog
