Oh thank god Black Friday is over~

Friday, November 25, 2011

People never see been working Black fridayase to amaze me... first off I have been working retail for 15-16years now.... and every year i swear I have seen it all... I have been up since 130 this morning I had to drop hubby off at work at 230 and I had to be at work for 330 I worked til 330 pm and hubby is on his way home now (his boss is thankfully driving him back) its 5:16mhere now.... I have never seen so many people turn irrartional over sales... sales items sold out... online and in store... the rudeness and inconsideration fone but them selves.. ok thats all normal every black friday behavior.. but this topped it for me... I was literally sneezed on by a woman and she was like oh sorry did that get you... I said yes..but i will go bathe in sanitizer now and she thought i was funny..hahaha :/ really...and then a few hours later A guy walking by just coughs all over me... these people were never taught to cover there mouths really? he just lloked at me with a questionable look on his face and I must have looked horrified (because i was) and kept walking... really really???
I swear I catch a cold from those people i swear i will take matters to the unverse and make sure they are taken care of.. grrrrr ... well at least i have til monday ff have zumba in the morning so hopefully it will knock out anything they gave me ... :D Ahhh retail.. :)

    Being a "fussy old school teacher" I would be most indignant if someone sneezed or coughed on me. My doctor used to say, "Don't let those kids breathe on you." I was so susceptible to strep throat that I avoided sick people like the plague. And being in retail you are really exposed to a lot of germs.
Some people don't even know that bronchitis is contagious and I have heard it is going around both here in FL and in NC. Stay healthy!!!
Talk later, Carol

    I think many things that were required etiquette have been removed, and a lot of this was good. We had many rules just to make one group made to feel beneath another, and that was wrong. However I think it has swung the other way too far. I am always amazed that people treat service people so horrible. We get sworn at all the time, and can never be fast enough. I think they sneeze or cough on us because they don't even see us there. We are less than human, but should be serving them with superhuman

How dare you look horrified when you are sneezed on? You are just lucky to be allowed to serve them! If you sneezed or coughed on them, they would scream in your face, and try to get your manager to fire you. I think it makes them feel good about themselves. I actually feel sorry for them. They are pretty pathetic people. When I am confronted by one of these " people ", I just think of Penguins of Madagascar.... "just smile and wave boys... smile and wave!" keep some sanitizer handy.. winter is the worst.

hope you don't get a cold from these inconsiderate bufoons.

Well the holidays are upon us

Sunday, November 13, 2011

Holidays are here and I have to start really thinking about getting the kids gifts done so i can send them LOL... but the other thing that has been the buzz at the gym in classes ...yep you got it weight...I have a anniversary coming up jan 3rd is when Zumba came into my life this past year(2011) It will be a year this coming jan 3rd I have lost 45 pounds to date I was hoping (before i realized how hard it is to lose on my medications) to lose all the weight (70 pounds) before Jan 3rd of 2012 now I might come close wwith another 5 or 10 pounds during the holidays or I might stay the same til after the holidays either way I am ok with where I am at the moment...either way come Jan 3rd 2012 My life has already changed for the better and only starts of next year with a bang :)
So i was planning thanksgiving yesterday with hubby I am making 4 pumkin pies (2 for him to take to work to share and 2 for us at home :) ) It is the only time of year i make these pies thankssgiving nd christmas and I am not going to stop now... the only other pie I am making is is a apple pie but I am only putting crust on the bottom and a crumble instead on the top...less carbs that way ::) and that is usually what i at for breakfast and snack til its gone LOL i usually have to make 2 because my older son and I dont share very well when it comes to mom apple pie lol :) the other thing that only comes in our home on those 2 holidays is cool whip :) (Cosmo is gonna be SOOOOoooo Happy LOL its his favorite! )
then of course turkey mashed potatoes carrots and stuffing with cranberries for the dinner (never understood why we have to have diner and dessert when all i want is dessert ) LOL
It will be just hubby and I and the birds :) (Fids) the kids will skype on both holidays :) which will be nice...really didnt do to much decorating for fall around here but if i have saturday after black friday off i will decorate for the winter holiday...I really dont get excited about the holidays I just go thru them...My holiday has already passed :) It was my new year (halloween) that holiday is MY holiday lol and NO ONE can screw that hokiday time up for me at all :) I started MY new year a few weeks ago andoff to a good start so scale finally went down a few ounce today so I am happy to see that... means my body is in tone mode and will lose weight when it reachs a certain point... I dont plan on gaining weight over the holidays or losing weight but if either happens I wont cry about it :) But i have a feeling i will be losing this holiday season with my strict gym schedule and running around at work (which is retail) I am sure i will be fine this holiday season :)

I have a plan and i plan to stick to it and enjoy the days we eat I will track good or bad like i always do and just go from there .. now just to get shopping lol ugh :D

Do you have a plan or do you wing it?

    I'm almost 30 and still go to my inlaws and grandmas for Thanksgiving dinner lol.
I sort of have a plan. I'm going to TRY to eat a decent dinner with only 1 hot roll ( my weakness) and 1 piece of pumpkin piem. Then hopefully I'll be done =). I'm really worried about Christmas. My MIL makes the best desserts ever, but I'm going to be strong. My 1 year on Spark ends on January 1 st =)

Sounds like you have a great plan! You can do it!
