So much sadness today

Friday, December 14, 2012

Let us pray for the families in Newton CT for the loss of those 20 small innocent children and the 6 adults who were killed in the elementary school

Let us also pray for 22 elementary school chilren in China who were attacked with a knife today and wounded.

And let us not forgot those who were killed and wounded in the mall shooting earlier this week.

Not sure what is going on in this world now, but those sweet inocent children and people should be targets for these adults who have issues within themselves

    It is so senseless to have to resort to killing. The adults were doing their job looking after their young charges. I can't imagine what set this young man off to go on a killing spree and killing his mom and other adults in the school.
My heart is so for these youngsters especially and their families. The grief they must be going through is unimaginable. The sweet innocence of the remaining children has now been wiped out also as they learn of their friends who have died and are no more. I don't think the full gist of it will truly hit them for a while yet. God have mercy.

    Prayers for all the families who lost loved ones this week. I'm another who can barely stand to see it or read it - I cry! There needs to be so much more kindness in the world and concentration on more of how we are alike than of our differences. All the hatred is so very, very sad.

    The news gets worse every year. I just dont understand whats happened to the world. Is it the violent video games, movies or tv that has changed some people who do these senseless acts of violence that causes so much pain. The grieving families will be in my prayers.

Blogging safely

Monday, December 10, 2012

Recently I have been reading a lot of blogs on here and some honestly are a bit scarey.

After all I have through with my stalker, I have read some where people are actually are either talking about their stalkers or women who have been hurt my by men and lashing out at them

I do understand that blogs are for venting but honestly there are times we have to think about our safety . Even though SP is a great safe place for a lot of us, it just takes one person in our outside lives to enter on here and find the things we share within ourselves.

How would you react to ths

This was being discussed on facebook and here was the answer I put down

Perhaps all those who work in customer service need to think how they would feel if their were the one with that type of remark on their receipt why not 3 gals which would be sufficient I am overweight but it is not due to lack of exercise or always over eating Really bad when we categorize a lot of people that way For me it's due to a medical issue and my meds make the situation worse Honestly how does one know what is up Also really what is FAT Nothing was mentioned it they were overweigt in the waiters eyes or obese to where it is gross

MOMMACASSEY 12/10/2012 3:03PM

    Just... WOW!

I've thought for years (since I was young and went through a series of customer service related jobs) that everyone should be required to work in retail or foodservice for at least one year to understand how these people are treated every day, and so that customers may think a few minutes before being rude to the people who do the menial tasks of serving them every day, but this article shines a light on how rude even servers can be. I can't imagine that the server in this situation could have thought they weren't going to see that on their receipt...

    No matter what specific insult was written on my receipt I would be beyond pissed. One just does not comment on one's customers' personal appearance or choices. I would certainly complain to the manager, and then to his/her boss if necessary and refuse to pay the bill. Nowadays I would also keep evidence and make sure it was posted out there in the public view if the company did not make satisfactory amends (within reason, such as free meal & sincere apology or whatever). But I would still make sure higher management was aware of what happened in case the on the spot mgr failed to report it.

Once, when I was grocery shopping, the bagger kept commenting on my purchases..."oh, this doesn't work" etc. about certain personal care products...the cashier kept trying to get him to shut up but he wasn't that swift on the uptake. After I left I complained to the manager, don't know for sure what she did, if anything, but I never did see him there again when I shopped.

    People are just so hateful. If the women weren't a overweight, I'm sure the jerk would have thought of another rude and offensive way to identify them.

    Before I read the article and listened to the news video, I can't honestly imagine how I would have reacted, other than hurt and embarrassed. Now, however, I will be watching, and should something similar happen to me, I will vilify the person and the establishment in social media, as they deserve. Forgiveness may come in time, but vengeance will be swift.

    INTERESTING. DID NOT REALIZE THIS WAS ON THE NEWS. WHEN I READ THE ARTICLE WHAT ALSO UPSET ME WAS ABOUT THE WOMEN IN RADIO SHACK AND THE PIZZA STORE. AFTER ALL THIS I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE TO SEE SOME OF THESE SERVERS HAVE TO GO THROUGH A CLASS ON CUSTOMER RELATIONS TRAINING WITH THE TRAINERS DOING TO THEM WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO OTHERS. PERHAPS WHEN THE MESSAGE IS ON THEIR RECEIPT THEY MIGHT LEARN

    Ii have really been struggling with this today. It was rude - no question about that. They wouldn't put any ethnic to describe someone. I have never worked in food service so not sure I knew that they put anything down to describe whose bill it is. I did see these women on the news and they were in tears and all upset - which lead to my struggle. I too am fat. I am working on not being but I am. I eat well and exercise but if you saw me I am guessing it is one of the first things you would notice. It is not something I am proud of but it is a fact and people are cruel. So although it was cruel, I do believe these women are milking their 15 minutes. It is a good reminder to all of us on labeling people based on their appearance.
