Thursday Observations

I took off work on Thursday and these are some observations:

  1. Starbucks isn't private. Please don't carry on private conversations on your BlueTooth. I saw (and heard) a guy talking into his computer (I Site?) - he was complaining about an employee. He named the employee and told us all that she was a problem from Day 1! He later moved next to us (yes, he discussed said employee 2 table over and we still could hear) and we were able to see his company's name. I'm thinking of calling this employee so I can get half of the money she can get from her company for talking about her in Starbucks.
  2. I saw a lady enrolling someone in Aflac in Starbucks (Starbucks isn't private!) - she was sitting with lots of papers and her lap top was open. In front of the lap top, she had placed a stuffed Aflac duck. It was dressed for the prom. I know I was impressed.
  3. At the pedicure place, just be happy they work on your feet. Don't ask for much. There is a serious language barrier. If the one lady who speaks West Texas English is there, you may ask for something special.
  4. There are rules to eating your way through Sam's. Go up one side and down the other - don't cross. Walk up and down another aisle so it may appear that you're buying something. Always say "Thank you," of course.
  5. You may not go down the hall where the classrooms are until the bell rings at 3:15. Needless to say, there is very important instruction going on at 3:10.


I've been tagged by Anne to come up with some weirdness about me. I'm not weird. I'm normal. Check back later to see if I can come up with anything.

I blogged about the computer man and duck also. I think our posts must have hit at exactly the same time. I am still laughing thinking about the duck and Mr. Computer man.

SO glad that you had some fun experiences on your day off yesterday. :)

Note to self: If you need something to blog about, take a day off work and things will come to you.

Sounds like you & Tammy had quite the afternoon! Glad you had some time off to yourself...gotta have that now & again.

I hear you on the language barrier at nail places. I ended up getting solar nails months ago, and not really intending to. I find myself just saying "Yeah...ok.....Yeah" over & over...because I have no idea what they are saying. Luckily I love my solar I guess I wasn't too upset about that.

Sneak all you want. . .I just looked up "fabric" in google and went to lots of sites until I found some that had pictures big enough that they wouldn't be all fuzzy when I cropped them and Wordpress made them hugemongous for my header. . .it was really pretty easy after that. . .I'll have both running but won't be able to do any real switching until after Thursday, so keep checking back to see what I've discovered next. . .like how to linky doodle things to categories. . .
