Finally Saturday

2 02 2008

Well it’s finally Saturday!  I’m sitting here at the computer in the Eskimo blanket mom got for me the other day trying to keep warm.  It’s cold up here this weekend!  I think the only real news I have is that Jirar is coming home tomorrow for a couple days and even though I have to work most of the time he is home, I am looking forward to some productive time together.  By the way, I appreciate all the concern and interest from friends and family, I know it’s a little more drama than you are used to from us but we’ll get past it eventually.  Just hold tight for a while, I’ll let people know what they need to know when they need to know it.

I’ve had some drama lately at work too.  Not sure if is just a reflection of my attitude about life right now or if the people around me are just getting dumber and dumber.  It might be a combination of both.  I’ve had a short fuse for stupidity lately at work and have been fairly negative with certain people.  In the circles that matter, this attitude works becuase it elevates my ability to show leadership skills.  In the circles where it doesn’t matter, it just adds drama to my day.  The short of is it that I just don’t have time to deal with dip shits whether it is a customer or a team member.  I will gladly spend hours with you if you are a customer with questions which are at least related to the reason I punch in every day.  I don’t give a shit about your personal lives, REALLY I DON’T!  I don’t want to hear about your dog, or your cat, or your blind and deaf sister-in-law who wants a discount because of her disability.  DON’T WASTE MY TIME.  I have to be focused on people who are going to BUY SOMETHING not those of you who are just killing time or window shopping.  This economy fucking SUCKS and since I’m the only one in my department half the time, that means I HAVE to make my sales goals somehow.  That is what I’m getting paid to do.  It’s too bad there are a number of team members (not in my department thank God) who fail to understand the single most important reason they are there: TO SELL!  Anyhow, that was a long rant.  I don’t think certain people like that I’ve been rather cocky lately at work.  Maybe it’s because those certain people know I have the ability to get promoted and become their boss someday and they don’t possess the skill to go that far.  Oh well, I don’t care.

Found some more pictures that I’m going to post here.  Seems I’m not the only one who thinks Traverse City is a little bit of a HICK town!  Got some web sites from co-workers where some of these pics are from.  Enjoy!

Short Bust
This bus is far to clever to be from a red neck.
I about died when I saw this one.  I could see this one on nearly every house up here.  We have plenty of hunters around here who would take out a deer just to make this doorbell!
The title here says it all.  Thank God my snow plow service doesn’t look like this one!
 Finally, (hide the children) This is just plain funny.  Not really redneck but close enough.  I about fell out of my chair.
