I am amazed at how snotty and snide people that work in the fast food industry are.

Sunday, I went to Subway for lunch. My order, while a little off the wall isn't complicated. I always get...
6 inch club
wheat bread (scooped out)
No cheese
Spinach, tomato, onion, pickles and oregano
Red wine vinegar on the side.

My co-worker always gets a Chicken Bacon Ranch. She doesn't like the dressing slopped on. I said to the girl "one thin line of ranch" she looked at me, and globed it on.

It seems like they don't listen! They are in such a hurry, they don't listen. It isn't like I am rude. I always ask nicely.

On Monday I went to Chipotle, and it was the same thing! They don't listen to me! I ordered a burrito bowl, and she puts a tortilla in the steamer... when I said "No, I want a burrito bowl" she got huffy with me! She asked me what kind of rice I wanted, and I said, no thanks, no rice. She just looked at me? I added black beans, steak, a double scoop of fresh mild salsa, a scoop of corn salsa, and cheese. I asked for a small amount of cheese, and I swear she put twice as much as normal on it!!

I realize their job isn't fun, but seriously.

I am looking for a second job, and I am thinking about applying at Subway. I promise that if I do I will listen to people and take some pride in my work.

Next item... my grandmother. I love my grandmother, and I realize how fortunate I am to have her. I wish though she would have a little more faith in me. I posted the Map and obstacle list for Mud on the Mountain today on my facebook page and she says...

"Corty how in the world are you going to do all that?"

and I said

"Because I am tough and I am determined"

she is worrying herself sick about me doing this race. She is also the same grandmother that wouldn't let me walk in the woods because I would get "jiggers" (when I spent most of my time at home playing and walking in the woods) I wasn't allowed to run around outside because I was going to get "over heated" (WTH is that anyway? Like seriously? My chubby butt needed to be outside running!!)

Even now she yells at me for "over doing it" because I have been working out a lot to prepare for my race. Trust me, I am not overdoing anything! I push myself, of course I do, I like to push my body! I like how it feels, but I know how far to push it!

anyway, that is all I have to say about that for now

    I just love your Granma! I know, I know she is not mine so it is easy to enjoy her and laugh over here in Africa. But she makes me miss mine, who has gone Home. Have fun. I bet you she braggs about you to her friends.
