Pepsi uh huh girl




Please explain!




Remember "you got the right one baby, uh huh" sung by Ray Charles - it was a Pepsi commercial around 1990. Well Pepsi would hire two college girls to dress up in a black miniskirt outfit and go to bars with this big cardboard cutout of Ray Charles. We would do the Pepsi challenge and if they picked Pepsi, they got a Polaroid pic with Cardboard Charles and one of the uh huh girls.

And you guys think your marketing departments have weird ideas!!!

WY - still a CO girl, though
daycare mom, deli worker, fast food employee, pizza employee, retail worker, toy salesperson, donut shop employee, film clerk at a mail order business, live in maid... I think that's most of them....

I thought I held a lot of jobs, unless you are all in your 50s+ - I hold jobs better than most of you. HA!~

Now we now for sure that all fast food workers are bankers in training. These restaurants are now exposed as the Farm Teams for the banking industry.

Lestie, that was just wrong! It's either that or I was highly recruited and just couldn't turn down a good offer.

I've been in banking, with this bank, for a little less than 5 years, and I'm here to stay. I love my job and am truly happy now. Maybe, though, I'll go back into grocery when I retire.

Before banking (now 26 years, all compliance) I was an RN for 11 years. Worked in Psychiatry (this really prepared me for Banking), ICU, ER, L & D, Nursery & Peds. Enjoyed it but burned out. There was less stress in banking until about five years ago.
