she works hard for the money......

I was working really early in the morning and decided I needed a drink about an hour into my shift. I pull into the convenience store and go straight to the cooler and then straight to the checkout. As I am walking out, I hear someone yell, "Yeah, that's right, get back to work." I turn, thinking it is someone I know giving me a hard time. It wasn't, and he sucked air through his teeth and tilted his head back, glaring at me. As I walk out, he is yelling at me to go "busting crime" blah blah........ so.................

I pull across the street, and notice the gentleman leaving. His car has no front plate, which is against the law, so I pull him over. He isn't wearing a seatbelt, and has no proof of having insurance. I warn him for the plate, and give him a citation for the seat belt and insurance problem. After he signs it, I ask him, "am I working hard enough for you now, sir?" Of course, he says, "F*** you, you f*** c****!!" and peels out and drives off.

I swear, there are some people you just can't please!!

crazy lady

At work, there is this lady that calls us about three times a night and for the most stupid things. Here are some examples of why she is calling 911:

"There are juveniles outside filling up my window wells with water."
"My neighbor just gave my dog a Klondike bar, trying to kill it."
"The neighbor's kids just filled my furnace up with dirt and now it won't work."
"My neighbor was just in my house, he went out this window right here (pointing) but I have no idea how he locked it back up."
At 4:00 AM, "would you please send someone over here to make them turn off all the lights? Someone is shining lights in my face and I can't get to sleep. They shouldn't be allowed to do that."

This lady works in the mental health profession. I asked her if I was one of her clients, what she would say to me if I came in and reported these things to her daily. I finally snapped and told her she was halucinating. Of course, tonight when she called she asked for them to send someone out, except for the lady that told her she was psycho. I NEVER used the word psycho, but I was thinking it a lot!! That is FINE with me, I don't have to deal with her again!!

psycho at walmart

So, I go to the Walmart Pharmacy to pick up my son's prescription. I get there, and there is a long line. There is a lady standing in front of the line. Her roots are grey for about 4 inches, then the rest is dyed red. She is wearing strange clothing, and she smells funny. Nonetheless, we are standing there waiting in line when she suddenly turns around and starts screaming at those of us in line behind her, "Can you all just back up? I am trying to talk to her about my prescriptions."

Of course, I turn to the lady behind me and say, "SO, all out of prozac, are they?" We had to laugh, but it was a very uncomfortable moment.

grandma got run over by a deer?

Well, today was the opening season of deer hunting. Half of our department was off of work to go hunting. A lady hit a deer, and it was still alive and trying to get up and run away. I had to shoot it. It was a four point (8 point by Eastern standards.) I had to take a picture. My coworkers are going to be mad. I got a huge buck on opening day!! If my camera were better, you could see the photo....but it sucks and the photo turned out too dark. :(

ignorant drivers

To all of the ignorant drivers out there, beware.

I am sick of being behind you in the fast lane while you meander around sightseeing....

I am sick of you pulling out in front of me....

I am tired of you not letting people in when they have their blinkers on......

And, lastly, I cannot believe the way you talk to me when I pull you over for a traffic violation. I obviously have a good reason for pulling you over, or else I wouldn't do it. If you fail the attitude test, YOU WILL GET A TICKET.

There, you have been forewarned.

mean people suck!!

There is a sweet lady that work at my favorite makeup counter. If you are feeling down, just go and see her and you will feel wonderful when you leave. She is always smiling, always makes you feel like the most important person in the world, and always compliments you in a way that makes you feel so wonderful.

Her husband passed away a few years ago. I know that she just finished paying for his funeral, as she mentioned it one day. Just prior to her husband's passing, he had bought a truck in her name...then suddenly passed away. The truck was repossessed, and taken to auction.

According to some scum-sucking attorney, they got $10,000 at an auction for an alleged $50,000 truck. He bought the loan from the Ford Motor Company, and then went after her for the money. Without warning, he garnished her wages, and drained her bank accounts.

She had checks out that hadn't cleared, that are now bouncing. She puts away $25 a check to pay her property taxes, and they took that, too. Her property taxes are due next month, and she has no money to pay them with. I am so angry at this greedy attorney, I could scream.

If I had the money, I would give it to her in a heartbeat. I happen to be at an all-time poor, and am in no position to help. However, I am going to try to find a way to help her!!

home sweet home

What a great trip to see my family, but it is taking me several days to recover. :)

While I was there, Chase broke his arm during football practice and nobody could find my husband. AHHHHH. I think that I paced a hole in the floor. He is OK, so it was fine.

I really miss my family, I wish that we lived closer. ...... maybe some day?
