Random Musings by Funny
I went to work in a good mood and it went downhill from there.
People did not want to sit where I was seating them (we are playing by my rules today, it is MY show), they complained about the food, the service (a snotty waitress- none of them are snotty- lazy maybe but not snotty), the rain (sorry 'bout that- do you have 4 muddy dogs tramping through your kitchen too?), the humidity (goes along with the heat and rain mix), the hashbrowns (too crisp), the pancakes (too done), etc.......
I mentioned to the other manager that there was an unusual amount of complainers.
She said "well there is a full moon and , you have been off the last 2 Sundays Funny!"
Helping my child :
a. move in to the college from hell
b. rescue said child
c. move him again
Kind of like a vacation.
A couple of my favorite guests asked how my vacation was.
"You don't really want to know"
Is that what the other employees told them? That I was on holiday?
One of our useless cooks called in at 2:55 (3:00 shift) to tell us that he might be having a heart attack and he would have to see and let us know if he was coming in or not..
He is a whiner and always has issues. Back pain, leg pain, tired, doesn't think he can make it through an entire shift, blah blah
The manager asks him, "when will you know for sure if it is a heart attack?, I need to get your shift covered"
He wasn't sure.
These things are never clear until you see the bright light and by then it is usually too late for a cordial phone call.
We got it covered.
He had better be there Tuesday with either a pacemaker or a doctors note.
Thousands without jobs and he farts around with his.
See how the crankiness wears off on me.
My sisters and brother were all together for D's b-day.
I called with my margarita in hand so it would feel like I was there too.
My new brother-in-law was holding a large ceramic frog in his lap and petting it, they were listening to vintage Madonna and New Kids on the Block.
Talking about some weird guy on Big Brother who wears pink spandex and has a six pack.
I am missing out.
I told them we all need to get together to see New Moon so we can scream with the teens at the theater.
It will be more bearable if we have flasks in our purses (like in the 10th grade at the teen dance clubs our parents dropped us off at)
We are in talks of a trip to Vegas for my 40th in December.
I hate to fly.
Better get a Xanax prescription soon.
There is some Beatles type show they want to see.
'Love', I think it is called.
Not so much.
I just want to walk around and look at the lights and see the cool hookers.
I need to go to bed.
Maybe we will grab the Little One and go on a road trip tomorrow.
We once went on a long road trip and stopped at this Civil War era house that was a haunted house/ice cream parlor/antiques store.
I would love to find it again.
My sisters went to a Murder Mystery House for my sisters Bachelorette party; it had been featured on Ghost Hunters.
I really want to go there and I am fascinated by ghosts.
They didn't see any.
Maybe you have to be sober for that.
Did I mention that the last time I visited my sisters, we went to a girl's house for girl's night and a few weeks before, one of the girls had seen a dark shape in the kitchen? And another time it was in the laundry room?
It walked right through the wall.
I had the creeps the whole time and wouldn't go to the bathroom alone (we were outside most of the time) so everytime I had to pee I said "hey, come with me to pee" to my sister.
The girl does not know she has a dark shape in her house.
