Now my ears are ringing

Another thread made me realize how much I miss the old H&R. I hate that it closed down years ago. I would not still be working there, but I loved the owners. They were great people, great co workers, and I met so many interesting people. That is something I can not do on the job anymore. It's 4 walls, 3 people, ringing phones, and visitors you know. I miss face to face interactions, but not the horrible colds and that sometimes went along with 30-200 customers a day.

Did the alternative anti- guru/trending topics forum get up and running? Some regular posters seem to be less regular these days.

Also, that flow chart is perfect. Guys who label themselves "nice guys" are typically asses who think themselves perfect and blame women for not throwing themselves at them.

So, I just got a FANTASTIC "you're a total failure and I bet you go into offices and act like you know everything and refuse to take orders and that's why you always lose jobs and you can't do anything right and here's XYZ why" lecture from my mother's boyfriend. Ugh. Merry Christmas, huh?

Over the years, I have had the office dog euthanized and driven a van around NYC. Driving in NYC was one of my biggest fears in the world.

Yup, yup. I refuse to take orders. Refuse!

Aww, CIBC

I think you should write a book, detailing all your jobhunt experiences. Or maybe an article for a mag. ?

You could make it funny, although I know most of this jobhunting is anything but funny or fun.

Thinking of you and hoping 2013 is a better year for you.

ZOMG I just did a elbow pass!!!!! That's where you hula hoop on your elbow and pass it to your other elbow behind your back and hope that it doesn't' fly off and break your lamp, window or anything else in it's path.

I've turned the other cheek so many times, I feel like I have whiplash. You will not continue to trample on my pearls.

In 2013, I'm going to play baseball. Life baseball.

I will be a model of decorum. Imagine Maggie Smith of Downton Abbey transported to the Prairies. Not as snarky, of course (and not as well dressed, unfortunately).

If after 3 strikes, you continue to be obnoxious/deliberately mean/rude, you are out.

Out = sent to Coventry; a stranger to me; sentences will be approximately 3 words or less (hello. yes. no. thank you. good bye.); no favours for you!

Rude co-worker, be advised, be very advised.

Your mother's boyfriend is a lying, cheating DB.

You, on the other hand, are awesome.

Also Springy, I'm not sure how good you are at Dopeman from Easy E, Sally that Girl from Gucci Crew II, or Me and My Girlfriend the TuPac version - not so much the Jay-Z version.

But I'm good at all of those as well. I figure we could do themed concerts. This is my thug life 4 life idea.

Just a thought....

I better brush up, it's been a while!

Man, Gucci Crew II!! I had forgotten all about that song.

If I start wearing heavy gold chains and a bling grill I can't be held responsible.

Minxy, congrats on becoming an auntie again I tried to log in from my moms laptop so I could like but it was being far too slow.


Woot!! My class was just canceled. The instructor is having car trouble. It is so cold and windy today. I really did not want to go out, unless I had to.

Now back to my regularly scheduled house work.

She was good about giving me a refund though. I asked her if I should return them or toss. She said to toss them. My husband, who hates to throw away any food, tasted one and afterward said, "Go ahead and throw them away." I love Etsy and have had some great experiences with it but maybe I'll stick to buying earrings and mineral makeup there instead.
Perhaps this is a testiment to how I take the feedback on Etsy too person, but this post makes me a little sad.

I know how hard it is to run a business on Etsy. I've haven't had a full nights sleep in weeks. I've sold hundreds of books (wow) and of the 1/2 of a percent that give me bad or neutral feedback, those hunt me despite all the good. My last bad feedback came when the post office ran over a package and I didn't respond quick enough as I was in the hospital with my mom (actually I did respond, I remember, but I quess it didn't go through)

I hope you will consider doing a kiss and make-up with her. She's new and just getting started. She learned her lesson and isn't selling that item anymore.

Awww...good point, Scrills. Now I'm sad too. Lesson learned by both of us, I guess.
