Scammers are amazing!

today at work....

a woman was leaving with her baby and 5 year old little boy
and the little boy tripped on the carpet on the way out and was crying.

conveniently the woman had a digital camera and her lawyer on the speed dial.

The boy had a slight scrape on his knee with about a pinprick of blood. she was asking for ridiculous amounts of paper towels to 'stop the bleeding' woah...

we told her if she wanted to take pics that was fine but she had to wait and we would call the police. she said fine. the police came and they were SO upset about this woman wasting their time.

"if you want to make something of this, then we have to call the paramedics. Otherwise, sign that the kid is fine and everyone can go home"

she wanted the paramedics. sat there waiting with her kid (walking around - quite okay) for the paramedics. She said 'yeah he is walking now, but what about tomorrow?"

the paramedics show up and the cop says

"I have to go, there are REAL emergencies out there"

the paramedics showed up and when they saw the kid started talking to us about phones and when they are eligible for an upgrade. the woman signed that yes her son was okay.

the paramedics left and she started talking about taking photos again. WHY DIDN"T YOU DO THAT WHEN THE POLICE WERE HERE?

Tyrone was the funniest during the whole event.
"hope nobody died while the paramedics were wasting their time here"
and even took the toy that the store keeps out front for kids to play with as a distraction into the back room saying "we better get this out of here, due to the circumstance, we don't need your kids to get hurt on this"

I laughed a whole lot this morning.

but seriously - i feel bad for those kids.

uber randomo

I woke up this morning with a serious need to watch the youtube video of david hasselhoff singing 'sweet caroline'. i didn't look too hard but apparently that one isn't a youtube favorite anymore. so i had to settle with the neil diamond version...

then i had to follow it up with mr bojangles.

and then 'walk the dinosaur'

can you tell that a) i haven't had a day off in a while and
b) i haven't gotten to play on the computer in a while?

again? are ya kidding?

sometimes i have to wake up earlier than i have to in the mornin to check my mail/estrip/etc before lauren needs the computer for the rest of the day...

and then i have nothing exciting to post.

been thinkin about moving a bit further north of buffalo when my lease is up - since mostly i work in lockport and lauren goes to school up there. i love the fact that we live right between allentown village and elmwood village for anything that we want to do - but seriously - we don't do anything down here so at this point its just costing us gas. maybe we should just stop being lame!

besides we need to be someplace with a yard so that I am allowed to have a dog. lauren promised you see :) i've named him already. Ralphy.

So my aunt and cousin live up in the falls - LaSalle? she is trying to get me to move near her. And i would have to say that if i were to move closer to anybody in the fam it would probably be her...

but then my boss shook her head at the idea of it. no no no... you don't want to live there...

okay fine. its not like i don't have till June to find out where I want to move to...

now i'm rambling.

as the sands of time deliver

So the cats haven't knocked the tree down yet.

it looks kinda nice actually. It is the light that we were missing in the unlit side of the apartment. Of course it kinda looks like the tree is on fire in this picture...


this is what lauren has been doing for the past four days. Well no actually mostly she has been on the computer. She works so damn hard and i just wish i could help her.

i'm trying to focus on keeping myself positive. I tend to get so very irritated so very easily. i guess i made a lot of pretty good sales today too so i guess its working.

(people just really irritate the poo out of me sometimes~!)

yeah sure...

put up the tree last night. its sooooo ugly!

white tree.

the cats will knock it down soon i'm sure.

because that is what they do. they ruin christmas. every year.

but at least when they do bad things i get to yell at them "You are ruining christmas!" and it makes me laugh a little.

I promise

I give my retail season resolution out to all of you know. in speaking it, i have a much better chance of keeping to it.

I promise to chill out when everybody and their mother wants to purchase p hones from me that are not very profitable at all.

I promise to not freak out when THe phones actually LOSE money due to current promotions.

I promise to remain happy and positive throughout the holiday grumbles and rumbles.

I will thoroughly enjoy my customers and look forward to their presence in my store, even if they are only paying a bill.

I will refrain from uttering complaints when they leave.

I will stop complaining about how walmart undersells us consistantly and makes it very difficult for me to deal with customers.

I will enjoy the holidays and all that there is about it. This includes traffic, christmas music, snow, and every member of my family coming in and requiring deals on phones.

turkey turkey gobble gobble

Happy Turkey day you ALL!!!!!

(E:lauren) went home for the holidays and i find myself alone for the first time in quite some time! which apparently means eating large amounts of pizza.

now i have to get my butt in gear and clean up this joint and head out to my gram's. It will be insane. lots and lots of people. my mom is one of ten.......

so now i'm just procrastinating.

if i can figure out how to post with my phone - i will. I don't see how i could actually post a mobile photo without going to a pc first. i mean i don't have an iphone like (e:jim) or anything.

anywhoodle. i'm going to play some tunes and get moving. happy turkey gobble guys!

oh and (e:janelle)... did you guys get your gift?

technicalities from folgers

(e:janelle) = the cats wanted me to express their graditute for you coming to feed them this weekend, so they have a token of their appreciation for you. how would you like to receive such a gift? perhaps your address and a well placed package on your doorstep for midnight delivery?

they didn't have their goals in gear yesterday when you stopped to drop off the keys. procrastinating kitties, i know.

so serioiusly i haven't had coffee and i'm delerious in case you couldn't tell.

i'm trying to make more time for estrip. like now when i should be getting ready for work.

even though that should be a fairly not so easy task - given that (e:lauren) has 23454345 pages to write on here in the next few weeks and i am entereing into the crazy retail season as a salesperson. aye.

whatever... if i could figure out how to sign in from my phone i would mobile post. i'm just an idiot. :)

ahhh i never thought i would be so happy to come home.

(e:lauren) and I went back to New Paltz this weekend and oh what a weekend it was. It was a whirlwind of places to go, people to see.

It was interesting though, because it wasn't the happy and joyous reunion that i thought it would be. We spent half the time in a state of "we don't live here any more."

Suddenly you find yourself outside of all the inside jokes.

I missed those mountains though. Even this late in the season the oranges, reds and yellows of what was left on the trees and the ground just made my heart a little happy.

And we made a descision. We have chosen two of our friends (jess and wazina) and we have decided that no matter what, we are going to be neighbors. We have to choose a place and move there and live next to eachother. We are going to raise families together.

And it can't be buffalo... so alas... buffalo has become a short term solution to the grad school problem.

Well don't I feel like a debbie downer?

Hey (e:janelle)
Thanks so much for taking care of our boys! Sometime this week you will find yourself in possession of a little token of our appreciation!
