Work blogging a la Francais

In yesterday's Times (2 supplement) there was an article on a very popular French work blog - Les Tribulations D'une Caissere (also see left).

It tells the tale of how the witty observations of a French checkout girl have become an international bestseller.

Some details:

Her name is Anna Sam and she worked in a French supermarket for almost a decade, smiling at shoppers but receiving little besides insults and disdain in return.

She witnessed behaviour ranging from the loathsome to the lustful - queue-jumping, cheating, thieving, moaning and sometimes a quick fondle between the meat and the cheese counter.

She put up with self-important managers watching the staff from behind a one-way mirror, a salary of €680 (£605) a month and the orange polyester jacket that she had to wear.

She would often joke with other checkout girls that someone should write a book about their plight.

For more details see The checkout girl: abused, ignored and on a till near you (Adam Sage).

The blog is, as you would expect in French, but if you read the Time's article you'll see some translated examples.
