Well at least I'm not ill anymore

So I've been cured from the plague for about a week now and I'm living life up. It was really touch and go there for a while. I seriously thought that my stuffy nose was gonna be the death of me...

Did I ever mention that I'm a cry baby about being sick? Well that would actually be putting it lightly. My immune system is much like a bullet proof vest...Not much can get through that sucker! So you would understand a great deal when I admit that I get a little distraught over the pain of just a simple cold.

My older sister Lydia is graduating college tomorrow from Northwest Missouri State, and I couldn't be any more proud of her. She has worked her ass off to be there and I can't wait to watch her walk up there. She already got a job and everything! We butt heads every once in a while, but I love her very much and I take pride in the fact that she is MY sister.

Big changes are happening at the place of employement. My manager is leaving and one of my co-workers (who just happens to be her lesbian lover) is going with her. They've come to be great friends, and I don't want them to go because we have such a fun time at work that it almost doesn't feel like work. Plus the new manager is a real bitch and I don't want to be nice to her...But I will because unfortunately it's in my nature to give everyone a chance (it's one of my personal flaws).

I'll leave you with one fact: Strawberry Gatorade and cherry nibs go quite well together dispite what you may think about two polar opposite artificial flavors. Just something to keep in mind!

Stop Running!

That is how I feel about my damn nose! I'm sick as a dog today and I'm gonna be a big baby about it.

Everyone has something in common...

Since I've been working a ton of hours, I've picked up on something that I find to be really cool. One person comes in and buys a $1.29 pop with 2 $1 bills. I give them their change, and they're on their merry way. Then, the next customer in line, who doesn't know a darn thing about the customer that was just in front of them, buys 3 lottery tickets with a $5 bill. Their change is $2, so they end up getting the last customers money.

Sometimes when I'm having a bad or maybe just boring day at work, I get really into this, and I imagine where those 2 bills will be in a day, a week, or even a month. I'll keep doing it until I confuse myself to the point of insanity!

Then I start to wonder who has touched my money before? Has Tom Cruise ever come into contact with my dollar before? Or maybe a convicted felon doing 15 in San Quentin... All very very possible.

If only paper money could talk, huh?

Happy Easter

I hope everyone is having a great day. Spend time with family and eat more candy than your tummy can hold!

Things That I Swear Really Happened to Me at Work:

I finally got switched to the evenings and just as things are looking up for me, I get stuck with an old man that refuses to wear deodorant....and if I'm up to date with my foul odors, I'd say he doesn't bother to wipe his ass either!

I ran over a silver fork and it got lodged into my tire! In the employee parking area...When I told my coworkers about it, my former assistant manager says in response, "That's what happened to the fork I brought for my dinner last night!

I had to argue with a group of 12 year olds on why I wouldn't sell them a carton of eggs and a 6 pack of toilet paper...

A door to door mormon came in and told me I had a beautiful first thought was 'Yeah, well you ain't getting any of THIS ora!'

Today is a day that I've been waiting for...A beautiful Spring day. Not too cold and not too hot/humid, just perfect. This past winter things were pretty rough in our household and there were many times that we regreted buying this house. But today is the kind of day that makes me rethink those kind of thoughts. It's a day where the tulips and trees are blossoming and the birds are making God-awful churping sounds that make your realize that Spring is here!

This is bound to piss me off!

When customers belittle me by literally throwing their money or credit card on to the counter as if to say "I want to pay but I don't want your blue collar coodies to rub off onto me".

Needless to say, today was interesting at work...
