Mmmmmm. What's been happening?
Right at this moment I'm watching Martha Stewarts Apprentice. I never got into the Donald Trump version, but maybe because I like Martha, I've really got involved with it. OK, now Martha has just announced her choice. Dawna. Who I did not like. I can't say I really liked Bethenny either, mmmmm.
What else? Rude customers. For those that know me, know I work in retail. I dealt with the rudest customer I have EVER had. It was a phone call, and before the gentleman, (and I say gentleman in the 'loosest' of terms,) had even given me a chance to piss him off he was asking for the manager. I managed to talk my way around that, and help him out, but boy, did he have a short fuse. I then had several more instances of rude people, some customers, some staff. Fortunately I don't have any work lined up for the rest of the week, yet, so as long as my family doesn't annoy me, I should be good!
The silly season is upon us. The first function for the end of year is this Friday, and another on Sunday afternoon. Last year we seemed to have something on every Saturday/night, but this year there seems to be a trend towards Friday nights, so this year our Friday nights are busy till Christmas. Weekends themselves aren't too bad.
Speaking of silly, even though I work retail, or maybe because I work retail, hasn't it all got out of hand. Presents I'm talking about. Part of my reasoning process is the fact that we are not a religious family, therefore find the reason behind it all a bit hard to explain. Why, when we do not celebrate the 'reason for the season' do we choose to go overboard on gifts. Why not give a gift, for no reason, during the month of July, or April, or any other blimmen month of the year. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy spending time with my family, including my husbands family, but the gift part has got out of hand.
Right, I'm getting down off my soapbox :)
