Notes Re: Fugly Bitches!

I really was having one of those great days at work today. I was very productive and I made all my goals for the week, and just an all around fun day.
Then, I returned from lunch and listened to my voicemails... and there it was, a fugly bitch!
Better yet, it was a lower level employee on my voicemail, bitching me out. She apparently thought that it was wrong for me to note an error she had made some work she completed.
The fun part - all our phone conversations are recorded, she was later busted out by second highest ranking manager in our office.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it chickie-poo!

Having the Stomach Flu Sucks! :(

For the last two days plus I have had this flu, which is not actually a flu because it is a noroviruse (aka gastroenteritis, food poisoning, food infection or acute none bacterial gastroenteritis.) Let me tell you that there is not a cute thing about it, although I have lost six pounds. I feel grosser than I have ever felt before. I have to say I thought I was going to die. Now that I am no longer dieing I am able to write this, and the only thing I really wanted to say is that Gatorade saved me.
After two and a half days of torture I downed a bottle of this magical drink and I was better within five hours. Go Gatorade! :)

Annoyances of the Service Industry!

Below is a list of things that really bother me when you go to a restaurant, a bar, shop at a store, etc... They are not listed in any specific order.

  • You walk into a restaurant and sit in the bar area, and before they even greet you or you order, "ID." This shit drives me nuts! (I actually had this happen at what was supposed to be an upscale restaurant. I showed the bitchy waitress my ID and left.) Highland House in Mequon, WI.
  • Ordering a steak medium rare and getting a raw slab of meat or on the flip side, beef jerky. That in of itself is not the worst thing, but being told that a medium rare steak is cold in the center and "it’s not for everyone" by the eighteen year old manager, as though you have no experience ordering a steak. The Outback Steak House in Fox Point, WI.
  • Grocery store clerks that you have somehow managed to ask too much of. You are checking out your groceries and maybe the price doesn't match. If you’re a smoker, you ask to purchase a pack of cigarettes. The response is the standard eye roll followed by a huff. Pick N Save in Brown Deer, WI.
  • Waiting for the store clerks to finish their intense conversation about makeup. (This is self explanatory.) Everywhere in America.
  • “Do want to put that on your (insert store credit card name here?) The poor clerk has been brainwashed to relentlessly sell the store card as though their life depended on it. It doesn't stop there. Push, push, push, push, PUSH! (Recently I was at Kohl's department store buying a greeting card for $3.99 and the clerk asked me, "Do you want to put that on your Kohl's card?" I actually laughed at her (just a little,) because when I was waiting in line I thought to myself how funny it would be if the clerk asked me if I wanted to charge the card for $3.99.) The fore mentioned incident took place at Kohl's in Brown Deer, WI; although the worst offender of the customer's right not to be harassed are Target stores everywhere!

Gifts For Men?

Tomorrow is my three year anniversary with my boyfriend :)

I really wanted to get him a great gift that was meaningful and different. So last night I was looking for creative gifts ideas online. The funny thing about this is that if you don't know exactly what you are looking for, and just do a generic search like "anniversary gifts for men," what you find is not what you are looking for. (As seen here.)

This is not what a women would buy a man, this is what a woman might (might?) buy herself. What comes up is mostly lame little knickknacks or trinkets. Furthermore, what man would want you to call him a Frog Prince?

Shopping for a man who has everything is hard! Don't let a cheesy website tell you what your man really wants as a gift, we are already rapidly running out of landfill space.

Women complain about premenstrual syndrome, but I think of it as the only time of the month that I can be myself.

by Roseanne

Shoes, a source of conflict.

I think it must be said that women want shoes.
They want to have as many shoes as there are days in the year.
They also want to have some where to put them so they can be neat and organized.
We don't mean to leave them lying about so that our men stumble over them.
We fully intend to put them away, but there is nowhere to put them away, and yet have them easily accessible.
Needless to say, we don't want wire shoes racks that hang over the bedroom door.
Why after so many years is there still no perfect shoe organizer?
