I love your non-communicating ways.

leave a comment »

I really think communication is very important. It is so important in all parts of life. With lovers, co-workers, doctors, friends, and those who directly could effect some majo0r moments in you life. I probably over communicate, and I’m okay with that.

There was a weird ordering snafu at work on Thursday. I ordered a product and 2 hours later that product showed up on a extra delivery I knew nothing about. I tried to cancel the order for the following day, but it was more than 2 hours past the cut off time for orders. I explained what happened and the distributor was surprised that I hadn’t been left a note, they definitely had remembered talking to the buyer and arranging a special delivery for shorted product. There was no communication to say what the deal was, what to expect, or what not to order. Zero emails.

So I sent off a little email about the situation. The responce I got back was pretty awesome… something like “I had things going on on Wednesday and sending you an email about orders wasn’t one of them. Oh, and by the way you ordered way to much.” Fantastic. This is why I don’t really enjoy working as this person’s backup.

Let me say… I was rather happy to leave work early today, even if it was because I was having back pain and needed to see my chiropractor.

If you’re going to wear bright lipstick, brush your teeth. Nothing says hot like staring at your mouth and wonder if the last thing you ate was a whole loaf of bread.

I’m going to a going away party tonight for my friend Jen. The crazy thing is I worked with her in the past at a spa 5 years ago, and she left me then, too. I asked her is she was coming back again, just to leave me again. She laughed and said hopefully not. I love ya Jen, good luck in Lake Tahoe!

I’m wearing bright red lip gloss, I brushed my teeth.

resume snafu..

leave a comment »

So, if you’re a pretty good looking chick putting your picture on your resume might seem like a great idea… but it only works if the person hiring you is:

  • male
  • a lesbian
  • single of the above
  • not so bright
  • unprofessional

But if you are my boss you would say it is pretty unprofessional. Or that “just because you’re good looking doesn’t guarantee you an interview.” I personally found it tacky.

Amen, the end.

Motorcycles are heavy.

Do not let anger overshadow your judgment.

Yesterday Kevin decided to go for a bike ride. Motorcycle that is… He dropped it twice. This means he had to pick it up twice. This also means he probably tweaked his back at least once. Good job.

Um, I’d be happier if he went for rides with other people. He did tell me exactly where he was going. He also later told me that there were lots of people up in the area.

Drip coffee would be free, if it were up to me.

leave a comment »

I love coffee. Working with coffee for about 7 years will do this to you.

So today I decided I needed a cup. I had already had tea but coffee sounded like a great idea. I took $1.60 out of my piggy bank. Who wants to whip out the debit card for coffee when I can pay for it in quarters.

I ordered a tall drip. It came to $1.75. “Um, just a tall.” Yup. Whoa! Since when did a tall (12oz.) cost $1.75? I ring up people for tall coffees all the time at work and it is $1.36! Jesus, did he bless my coffee first? Why so much?

Yeah, I think I’ll be making all of my drip coffee at home… except for the everlasting free flowing coffee at work.

Happy belated!

leave a comment »

You know you are a total douche when you realize it is the 6th and your mom’s birthday was on the 5th.
You realized that you talked to her but totally spaced it. You call and say “yeah and I was gonna say happy birthday but apparently it was missed in all those things we talked about. Um, yeah. I knew I was forgetting something but couldn’t remember what. …”
At least I beat my brother at remembering… a day late.
Happy Birthday mom, you’re neat.

Credit cards are a joke, most times.

leave a comment »

Against my better judgment I got a credit card a few years back with Orchard Bank, issued by HSBC.

Dealing with these people is like dealing with a small child. I rushed a payment and payed extra for it, they charged me a late fee. I called to dispute it and they got rude even though I said I had an email saying it would be reversed. I argued with them and demanded to speak to a supervisor and the second I said I wanted to make a $150 payment they could easily reverse my late fee and be my new bestfriend. We are setting it all up and the guy said something about a $15 phone fee for the payment. What? Forget it, I’ll hang up this very minute and pay it online. Wait, my new best friend chimes in that he’ll wave this fee for me as a courtesy this one time.

If you have the magic to wave fees magically, why by a dick and argue with me that you can’t do them in the first place? Oh wait, if I offer to do something then you’ll be very nice and do what I need/want you to do.

Basically, stick to well known financial institutions when getting a credit card.
