>Do you think

>people realize when they look like flaming idiots?

I was at Borders last night, I had a coupon and it is time to get next years appointment book. As I was standing looking through the Moleskin display (cause you know that is the brand appointment book I get every year) a man was at the register trying to return something and it was against Borders policy, whatever he wanted to return they couldn’t accept it, and so he thought they (the people in that store) should change Border’s policy to accommodate him, “If you want to keep me as a customer, you will give in to my demands.”, he was very loud and got on the phone, after asking, “Do you have the receipt for the stuff you got me for my birthday? Cause Border’s won’t take it back”, he then says, “Well now you got some new stuff cause they won’t take it back.” So now whoever gave it to him knows he was returning it, except he is probably the type that told them when he got it it “Why did you get me this? I don’t like it.” People like that are one of the reasons I left retail sales.



>good morning

>I was going to post last night, don’t remember exactly about what, but remembered I had a survey from J.D. Powers to complete, they even sent me a dollar to do it! So anyway, it had sixty something parts and about a gazillion questions, OK maybe only a bazillion. When I was done I had to go to bed.

I am feeling much better today and I would like to give my thanks to everyone for their well wishes and interest. On another note, as I was heading out the door Stitch said, “I don’t even know what to say about this.” I turned around to look and there was Abigail (the cat) on top of Woodstock’s (the parrot) cage. And Woodstock was not making a sound, I hope he wasn’t dead from a heart attack.

I just got an e-mail with this quote in it:

“A woman is like a tea bag–you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.”
~ Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962), United States diplomat and reformer
