Half-Full Friday and Blog of the Week

I'm beginning to think that Bob is going to remain a permanent fixture!  His little brother Jimmy came and went within two days but Bob must be content 'cuz he sure doesn't seem to want to leave.  In fact, he's spread out a bit, gotten bigger and made himself at home.  :(

It's Fabulous Friday which means it's time for Half Full Friday!  As always, if you want to join in the fun, head on over to Eyegirl's and add yourself to Mr. Linky.
I'm happy I got both my state and federal tax refunds back already!

I'm happy the weatherman got it all wrong and we didn't get any snow this week after all!

I'm happy Max made it to his 10th birthday today!  Happy Birthday, Max!

I'm happy that after downloading approximately every possible Flash Player program available, I finally got the right one and can now watch videos online again as of last night!  :)

I'm beyond happy my Midol has FINALLY kicked in!  Midol is my bestest friend in the whole wide world right now!!!!!!

I'm happy I finally got my first ever McDonald's Shamrock Shake this week!

This week's Blog of the Week isn't really a blog but a website that I love to go to.  I'm not sure how I found it exactly but I used to read it pretty regularly.  Then I switched computers and lost the link and just recently found it again.


If you've ever worked in retail, you know just how stupid and funny people can be.  The basic gist of this website is people relaying their various experiences with customers.  What I love is that these snippets come from all over the world which goes to show we are all the same no matter where you go.  The stories come from all kinds of businesses, although they don't name the business itself.  The type of business and location only are given.  The names of the people involved are not usually given either, unless it is a vital part of the story being told.   

The stories are all given from the point of view of the employee.  Reading them is like talking with a friend or a co-worker and hearing about their day.  This website was started in October 2007.  Sometimes when I have nothing better to do, I enjoy catching up on the older posts.  It never fails to make me laugh at how dumb people can be!  Luckily, I've never seen myself in any of the stories!  LOL

7 showed me some love:

I am happy you got your flash to work! Yipiiiii! That is great. I always felt so bad for you, that you could not watch my clips.;))
Thank you for sharing the blog you mention, my Irishman would love it as he has worked in retail many years.
Have a lovely weekend dear friend,

Glad you sorted your videos out! I was just about to come and leave a suggestion that you try a different browser - I know a lot of people who have trouble with IE find that everythign is fine if they use Mozilla...anyway, glad you've sorted the problem!

And what on earth are Shamrock Shakes? Sounds very interesting!! :-)
