the weather outside is frightful....let it snow? let it snow? i say NO!

I can hardly believe it myself but Proex ACTUALLY closed early today due to the god awful blast of snow we are getting... AGAIN! We got to close at 4. very unsual. generally they make us stay open.
John got done with work at 11 30 so he was nice enough to come and get me. he just struggeled getting the car in the garage. he is crabby now because he got stuck a bit, spinning the wheels and such.

Our district manager said even Southdale closed early. for those on my friends list not in the area, we just got a blast of about 8 inches of snow last weekend and its expected to get about 8-15 total out of this blast. the snow is blowing all over the place too.

i am glad to be home now and not out in it. i have to work at 8 tomorrow morning. it should be fun
trying to get through the snow. luckily i take the bus, so i am sure i can get there...

so all of you out there who are still working, i hope your drive home is safe one...

Just a little fyi for all you Office and Joss Whedon fans... he directs the episode that is on tonight!

what else is new? i am sick. i have a horrible cold. i called in sick today from work. i want to be feeling better since i work this weekend. at least i have tomorrow off also. the day of rest today has helped.

work has been really slow these dsys. my boss says we are down $4000 from last year. he may have to lay some of our part time people off or REALLY limit their hours.

we are contemplating a vacation in the near future. we have enough money from our taxes and some money i got when my Grandma passed away to do it. We are seriously considering going to Hawaii.
i have ALWAYS wanted to go their and John has a friend from his air force days that is stationed in Honolulu that he would like to see again.

the cats are good. Oscar is really trying to master a way to use his paws to open our bedroom door at night. he sits out their and cries and reaches his paws and extends himself to as tall as he can get and wraps his paws around the doorknob! he actually is getting the hang of it. he can move it a little bit. Joey loves to sit behind me and lick my hair. he has been near me most of the day. i think he senses i don't feel well.

enough rambling...

can you hear me now?

This is a really funny story from my day I thought you all might enjoy.
I just finished helping a customer do a studio order and i went to the register to ring her up.
there was another customer right next to her being helped by another one of my coworkers.
my customer wanted to ask me one more question before she left. she starts to ask me this question and this old lady says "could you stop talking RIGHT next to me"? i can't hear anything at all out of this ear because YOU(meaning my customer) was talking too loud. My customer says "excuse me but i was talking to the woman behind the counter NOT you or TO you" basically mind your own business.

i proceeded to tell my customer "i'm sorry about that" i was in shock. i could not BELIEVE how incredibly RUDE this old bitch of a woman was being! My customer said, "no that's okay" and the old bitch thought my customer was talking to her and said "no it is NOT okay"

my customer almost left and she was beat red in the face because this woman was being such an ass. i got her to come around the corner, further away and she got to ask her question and i got to apologize again. my customer was totally cool about it. i don't know if i could have been in her shoes.

some people....
