Elf on the Shelf and stores

I started working at a retail department store at the beginning of October.  For the past 2 months now I have had to look at Elf on the Shelf every time I go up the escalator.  I am like can i just push it down the escalator now and roll it somewhere else.  Hello people we have 2 more holidays to   through, Halloween and Thanksgiving.

If it needs to be out that soon then maybe it should have a Halloween outfit and a Thanksgiving outfit.  Because then maybe it wouldn't end up at the bottom of the escalator.  I can't tell if any of them sold.  If they did then they are multiplying like rabbits.  Maybe all the toys run around the store and make a mess.  It's either them or the slobs that shop.  Well whomever it is they are keeping me employed at the moment so keep at it.

Life has been not so blonde lately

Lately, life hasn't been so blonde.  I have been working multiple jobs and trying to remember what day it is and where I'm supposed to be.

Today at work, they put out wrapping paper for us to take.  So I took 10 rolls thinking I'll find a use for it.  Yea right it's wrapping paper with a beer logo on it.  That will work great at Christmas.  Heck, who am I, kidding I'll use it because it's a step up from using a Meijer or Target bag to wrap my presents.

The funny in almost all situations

Whether it's positive or negative there's usually something funny in just about any situation. If not then I just have a weird sense of humor. There's one person I know who will say things out loud and when someone answers she's always surprised and is like I was just talking out loud. So after a few times of this, the group of us just stopped saying anything. Then she gets a little pissed when she says something and no one answers. She's like I was waiting to know something. Then we are like well we weren't sure if you were talking to yourself or us. I just chuckle at these things. If I don't then I'll go crazy. I'm already blonde don't need crazy added to the list and I mean blonde in a good way.

My very good friend's fiancée passed away about 6 years ago. While at the funeral service, her fiancee's 5 year old nephew passed gas during a very quiet moment. Then you hear a few chuckles from people. After the service people were talking and chuckling about it. It lightened the mood for a few moments.

Of course there's the one team lead that doesn't read her emails before delegating the work to others, because if she reads them she might as well do it. Ummmm, then how do you know what your team is working on. Not to mention how do you know you are not creating double work for the group? For example there were 2 emails about 2 separate orders that were going to the same person but with different addresses and she sends them to 2 different people. The person it is going to is no longer with the company. Ok let's have 2 people start emailing and calling to see where the orders should be going. Use your group wisely and we will shine. If not we look bad then you look bad. Something funny may or may not come from this one. But I moved on from it.

I was thinking about how some people get hazardous pay because they work with hazardous materials. Why don't we get attitude pay, more like bad attitude/negative attitude pay? It takes a lot of energy to deal with those types of people. When you are happy and positive life is so much easier. I�m not talking about the 1-2 moments a month where everybody gets crabby or has a bad attitude. We are human after all. I'm talking about the ones who are nasty all the time. It's like they thrive on take the joy out of other's lives.

I figure I'll keep looking for the positive/funny things in every situation. It will help me stay positive and focused on myself and my journey.

Zoo with the friend and the nephews

So I'm the one without kids and I go with a friend and our nephews to the zoo.  My friend also doesn't have kids so it makes for an interesting day.  

We had a 5 year old and a 2 year old plus a stroller and a wagon.  Who brings that much crap to the zoo.  We do and not sure why,  Oh wait my friend gave in and got the wagon.  Half the time I'm chasing 2 kids and  pulling and pushing the wagon and stroller.  The other half I'm trying to control the kids pushing and pulling the stroller and wagon.  Not an easy task for a 44 year old who is with her friend who has no clue what is going on.  Like walking in a shop and forgetting I'm right behind him with a stroller.  Hello, hold the door.  Yep, it's been like that for the past 20 plus years.

When I wasn't chasing both I was with the 2 year old, while he was talking about all the trash cans over the zoo and wanting to be in the wagon.  That kid liked the trash cans and wagon the best out of all the animals at the zoo.  What the heck kid there a ton of animals and you'd rather throw out my water bottle that's half full.  I;ms just glad he wasn't trying to throw my water bottle in the monkey cage.

But it was fun and the kids won't remember that it was warm out and they ate cheerios and ice cream for lunch.  They will remember the trash cans, the wagon, and all the running we did over the zoo.

Slap the stupid people or have ballon head

Since I have mutliple things going on, I run into a lot of different types of people. Lately it has been stupid people. Some days it's so bad I feel like my head is a ballon since I cannot slap them. 

Some people will still there and talk to their computer screen and when someone doesn't realize it and answers them they are like oh I said that out loud. Then when they actually need an answer no one answers them. Hello people don't talk to yourself and we may answer when you are talking for real. 

Then there are the shopping carts in the parking lot. People is it so hard to push the cart all the way into the cart carrol. It must be, becaus you left it sitting right in front it. I then walked 10 feet to push it all the way in so it wouldn't roll and hit someone's car. People like you are too stupid to shop so please stay home.

Summer of Work

Yes, this has been a summer of work and little fun.  Oh and maybe dealing with stupid people.  Some days I wonder if I went from the blonde life to the stupid life.  Things like people not understanding dye lots, not knowing how to run a vendor event, to anything else one can think of like not using a turn signal.  Oh, lets not mention the one where I cannot make the bed because the corners of the bed are too heavy for me to lift to get the sheets tucked under.

I seriously think someone switched my life and I didn't know it.  I feel like people have lost all common sense and turned into idiots.  I'm sure this will turn out some comedic stories at some point.  It better happen soon because this is getting like the stairs at work, way too much work.  Because I have to keep my mouth shut and not say things like "what are you stupid?"

Of course there has been a boat sitting near the railroad tracks that are near my house.  My boyfriend and I are trying to figure if someone tried to take the boat down the tracks.  The funny thing is that it is not on a trailer and it looks like the back part of it is missing.  So yea, it's been there a week and still sitting there.  I mean really is anyone missing a boat that thinks it's a train.  Maybe it was the caboose.

Middle aged...ummmm maybe

Yea so the 2 shows I have been watching the past 2 weeks are Big Brother on CBS and Grace and Frankie on Netflicks.  Most of the people on Big Brother range in age from early 20's to early 30s.  then Grace and Frankie are geared to older people.  The 2 main characters are 70.  Ok I am 44 and don't feel like it.  I enjoy both shows on different levels.  I just chuckle and giggle at Grace and Frankie.  Then I get sucked into the drama of Big Brother.

Yes, one show is fictional and the other is a reality show.  Both shows are probably not geared towards my age group but I watch what I want and enjoy it.  Imagine of both shows combined.  Old people in a house with no communication with the outside world.  There'd be no drama and they'd be talking about their depends and the good old days with no TV.
