Once again, it has been far too long between ‘drinks’ oops I mean blog posts.
Although- come to think about it – it has been a long while since I had a nice glass of vino.
There has been so much going on in the world I have had a bit of writers block. Where do I start? What should I really comment on? etc etc. yes it has happened to all of us. How do I know that – wellllllllll !!!! there are numerous other blogs that post about this particular topic. Even the Daily Post and The Community Pool had some tips, recently.
I have had plenty of laughs over at The Return Of The Modern Philosophers blog. Man can Austin pull some type of witty repartee outta the bag, even when he is dog tired from the day job, and its current all about Mr Trump.
Colleen Cheesboro has had me fantasying about all things Fairies, the bottom of the garden and some great links to those helpful sites -for writers block.
Whilst the contributors to the site called The Seeds for Life have been my de facto cheer squad. Just to get me out of bed and tame / tie up /wrangle the black dog that resides at my house.
As for all of you Thanks. I hope you all had a very nice Easter.
Here’s some more candy; just in case you have not had enough.
At the big chain supermarket, where I work, it was frenetic to say the least from as soon as school got out for holidays the week before up till today.
Seriously folks it’s only ONE WHOLE DAY that we are totally shut. But you spent $$$$$$ like it really was growing on (sustainable regrowth) forest of trees. That was OK, as far as our management were concerned. It made us look fantastic for the all important bottom line. As for my team of replenishment experts I was incredibly proud of the way you ( us) all pulled together and got those never ending pallets – split, sorted and onto the shelves as quickly as possible.
The Customer Service team – again you rocked because even though SOME customers thought you were fair game for all their woes, moaning and bad moods ( because Aunty r and Uncle P with their 4 precious kids had dropped in unannounced) you stood tall ( and proud) SMILED and ensured everyone of them it truly was a wonderful day to be alive.
As for those of you WHO THOUGHT THEY COULD SHOPLIFT, just a few extra Easter Treats; well sorry but we really were on to you as soon as you skulked into our stores. Yes even the paying customers dobbed you in. So HA!!
OK it did not quite have a 100% strike rate there but it was a lot less than the company anticipated. Folks here’s a friendly tip: majority of us are casually employed and Yes it is as hard for us to make ends meet but that does not mean we stoop to your level. You only make it hard for every one else. So please stop trying unless you really do ‘want your day in court’.
Now one more extra special thanks: “Lightning”: I know you are reading this and I know you are still safe. (Thank you Big Guy upstairs.. I feel blessed to know this fact. My own Easter miracle).
I truly loved the BIG bunch of flowers you left at the customer service desk for me..
I only wish you had waited just long enough for me to see you. They made me cry. Of which I really did not want me peers see me do…. See! they all think I have no heart and I am this emotionless person who they adore as their Team Leader. So damn you in the nicest possible way.
I still have some of them left sitting in that beautiful hand crafted vase you gave me all those years ago. So do not forget your mum for Mothers Day.
I hope all of you had a great Easter. Cheers.
