“Shoes, shoes, everywhere I look there are shoes. But not just any shoes, sandles to be exact.”
“Look, this is just a dream, you are dreaming about shoes.”
“That's all I have dreamed of since I took that job as a shoe salesman on the beach. I can't stand it anymore!”
“It will get better. The beach will close down In a couple of months for the winter season.”
“Thank goodness for that! I have two more months of this shoe nightmare. What will be next, I wonder? Christmas Season sales…”
“Toys, toys, everywhere are toys…”
Damn! Another nightmare awaits!”

Reminds me that Christmas is coming round quick again! I can understand his nightmare! Good fun PJ 🙂
LOL! Yes, Christmas is coming quickly and soon the stores will be filled with toys and Christmas decorations! Anytime I would start a new job it seemed I dreamed about it every night for the longest time! Thank you so much, Iain!
The stores are already full of festive stuff. I did notice some lovely vampire gingerbread people for Halloween though…………….. they had fangs of icing .
Hahaha! Oh yes, we have to go through Halloween first! LOL!!
LOL a very funny story, PJ and apt for the time as Christmas will be here before we know it!
Oh gosh that is so true! Christmas is just around the corner! Thank you so much, Jade!

You are welcome! 🙂
Sales can be a nightmare for some 🙂
Yes, that is so true! Especially at Christmas! Thank you so much Reena!
In Puerto Vallarta they would probably carry the whole board of shoes around. Good idea for the nightmares of retail jobs.
Hahaha! That would be a nightmare in itself – carrying the whole board of shoes around. Thank you so much, Mark, for reading and commenting.
Methinks he should not be a salesman.😸 Then again, I can kind of relate as I worked at a steakhouse once as a waitress. When I left to go back to school, it was a while before I wanted to even LOOK at a steak.
Hahahaha! I don’t blame you, cause I would be the same way! LOL!
Comes with the territory, it appears. Dreaming of wares to sell.
Thank you!! 🙂
When work invades our sleep we should get over time!!!!
Hahaha! So true! LOL!!
It is time to leave this job, perhaps he could become a chiropodist 😉
What is a chiropodist? LOL
