Fawk You Friday

BWS tips button



For those of you who are worried about the button, J, at Boobies, Babies, & A Blog, and I, are just fine with using one of ours. I don't know how else to tell everyone that we do not have a problem with that. We just want people to join and vent. Just have some fun!!! How hard is that? Here is my list.

Fawk You to people who call customer service and say I printed their bill. I do not PRINT YOUR BILLS!!! I DO NOT HIT "PRINT" ON THE COMPUTER!!! SERIOUSLY!!!

Fawk You to people who want to do the one thing I cannot take. ENOUGH SAID!!!

And now a word to the one thing that will get me started on a tirade. FAWK YOU CANCER!!! YOU TOOK ANOTHER GREAT PERSON THIS WEEK AND LEFT A LITTLE GIRL WITHOUT A MOMMA!!! YOU LEFT ANOTHER SET OF PARENTS WITHOUT THEIR CHILD!!! GET THE HELL OFF THE PLANET AND NEVER RETURN!!!

Work

Work has been a bear lately. Everyone complaining, mandatory overtime, and school on top of it. I’m not sure if I’ll ever find peace.
The fact of the matter is, I may not have my job much longer. Apparently customer service is no longer what’s important. It’s only sales. And I’m not great at pushing people for sales. There is a reason though.

People will either buy or they won’t. Someone calling in to make a payment do NOT want to spend more money. I know I don’t. And most people are calling in to LOWER their bill. So guess what answer I get every time I offer something. NO!!!

I don’t understand what happened to customer service. There never seems to be someone on the other end that will actually care what I have to say. That may be why I can’t seem to sell. I understand all too well where the caller is coming from.

Of course, it doesn’t mean I want to hear…..”I just got my bill”. That seems to bring out the worst in people.

Tuesday Train

Photobucket



Yesterday I took my last final for this set of classes. Finally! Done! Now I have to work on another class. I guess I'm just a glutton for punishment. I just keep going.

Just a little "bidness". PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, KEEP THE BUTTON ON YOUR POST OR ON YOUR SIDEBAR WHERE WE CAN FIND IT. It is impossible for us to spend all our time searching for the button. I appreciate your help.

Now it's time to take a ride on the Train and I'm really happy I'm here. Aren't you glad to join us on the ride? With Faith, Family, And Friends, The Survival Mama, and The House on the Corner are the best at what they do. So link up and enjoy the ride.

Finally Done!!!

Yes, I’m finished with this set of classes and boy am I happy. I thought it would never happen. On top of that, I got an email on Sunday that said they had not received the fax that set up my re-enrollment for school. And it had to be in by this morning. WHAT!??!

I was fit to be tied. Here I am scrambling to find a fax on Easter Sunday with a final exam to take. What a day! I am so happy it is OVER!!!

I want to say thank you to all my loyal readers. You have been supportive when I wasn’t being very involved in the blogging world. I have missed being able to read all your posts and comment on them too. I am hoping that my set of classes will be a bit less intense and I will be able to participate more.

See you all soon!

Sarcasm Has Vacated The Premises

I know! I know! The sarcasm has left my site or sight. Works both ways doesn't it? Well, I hope that ends soon. I've decided to share more of my photos since I don't seem to be able to write. We'll see how you like these. I have comments for all, as usual.

I love trains. I get to take many photos of this one as it is near my home.



Yes, we had a snow storm earlier this week. This is taken near the river right after it stopped. Except for the fact that is was very heavy snow, it was beautiful.



Do you think he was bashful or just playing hard to get?



This is Maddy the Boxer. And this, is her normal position.



The water has been so high the critters are being found in places they don't normally stay. On the bank instead of some distant spit of land. I'd say this guy was having a bit of bad hair day though.

Fawk You to people who want to make my life miserable. How dare you threaten me? YOU SAID THE ONE THING YOU KNOW WILL GET TO ME!!! HOW IS THAT ANY BETTER THAN THE OTHER PERSON WHO DOES THE EXACT SAME THING?

Fawk You to Cancer!!! HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU TO GO AWAY!??! I WILL DO THIS TILL I DIE!!!

Scavenger Hunt Sunday



More fun on the Scavenger Hunt Sunday with Ashley at Ramblings and Photos.

Time

I live and breathe on this. It holds my schedule, therefore, my time.



Poem/Poetry

Although this is an archived photo, it is poetry for my soul. Sorry for the cliche.



Outside

This is "outside" at my favorite park. Needless to say, I can't get to most of it right now.



Zoom!

I don't know why, but I like this zoom.



Isolation

This area is normally teeming with people. Kids are usually running all over the park stage, but yesterday morning this was a very quiet place. Yes, we had snow.

Fawk You to people who just want to cause problems. Have you noticed you can't get what you want when you're being nasty? THINK ABOUT IT!!!

Fawk You to companies who don't get that the economy sucks. Do you seriously not get it? THINK ABOUT IT!!!

Fawk You to the &%$#^!*% driver who decided to ride three feet off my bumper and then get upset with me. GET OVER YOURSELF!!! THINK ABOUT IT!!!

Fawk You to rain. The river is rising and flooding in places it hasn't since 1965. GO AWAY AND STOP VISITING!!! THINK ABOUT IT!!!

Fawk You to Cancer. I'm going to make a button that everyone can have on their blog and together WE'LL MAKE YOU GO AWAY!!! WE MEAN BUSINESS!!! THINK ABOUT IT!!!

Okay. Now it's your turn. What is making you mad? What is making you steam? We want to hear it and we want you to share it. Come on!!! What are you waiting for?

We Are Wet

Yes we are. The Mississippi is making sure we know it's there. These were taken at the local park that sits on the river and they were taken after we were supposed to start falling. With another storm on the way, I'm a bit concerned about that prediction.

I'm counting down the days until this term of school is over. I am just crazy right now. I've already requested that I cut down on school next go around so I can get a breather. I can't wait.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday



More fun on the Scavenger Hunt Sunday with Ashley at Ramblings and Photos.

Motion

Ok so it's archived. The lighting was horrible during a program where children have movements. This is what you get!



Waiting to Click

I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS BIRD TO SIT STILL LONG ENOUGH FOR ME TO GET A DECENT SHOT SINCE LAST YEAR!!! Now that it's out of my system, I am so happy I finally got it.



In Fashion

Yeah....IN THE 70'S!!!



Animal's Perspective

This is what Maddy does when I have the inside door open. She LOVES this.



Many

During the winter all the water birds that don't fly south hang out at the park where they are fed by lots of people. It does give those of us that don't feed them some time to shoot them. So to speak.....

Where The Name Fits

So I'm coming home from Sam's on Thursday when I do a double take. I had to pull over to get a shot of this. Does anyone else find this ironic? The only part of this building that looks remotely like it used to after a fire is the front wall. Surrounded by blackened timber framing, the name is still proudly displayed. El Charro!!!

Fawk You to insomnia. WHY ARE YOU TRYING TO CREEP BACK IN! I SERIOUSLY DO NOT NEED YOU RIGHT NOW!!!

I'm Tired of Gray, Aren't You?


Scavenger Hunt Sunday



More fun on the Scavenger Hunt Sunday with Ashley at Ramblings and Photos. Challenge yourself! I had a hard time with this week's prompts. I guess I'm bound to have an off week.

High Key

Okay, so this one's a little bit of a stretch but hear me out. The KEY to my ability to relax flies HIGH. I know, lame. Just go with it!




Bedroom

This puzzle was put together when Amanda was sick for the last time. It hangs in my bedroom now.



Something Tiny

These flowers are tiny but pretty.



Off in the Distance

There is supposed to be a dock near those green posts. That's how high the Mississippi is right now.



Stripes

I know you were thinking something different. These are the tiny stripes in the interior of my car.
