|LOL I had to post this!
A woman goes to Walmart and wants to return something, but is told that she can't so she says loudly to the customer service person "PINCH MY NIPPLES PINCH MY NIPPLES!!!" The CS person doesn't say anything and again the women says that the item doesn't work, she isn't happy with it and wants to return it and is again told that she cannot return it so the woman says even more loudly "PINCH MY NIPPLES, PINCH MY NIPPLES!!!" The CS person calls the manager who comes down and a third time the situation is explained and the manager says that she cannot return the item to which the woman starts screaming "PINCH MY NIPPLES, PINCH MY NIPPLES!!!!" The manager finally asks her "Why do you keep saying that?" And she replies, "Because I LIKE MY NIPPLES PINCHED WHEN I'M GETTING SCREWED!!!" The item was returned and her money promptly refunded.

Why do i have to be a pushover? Everytime someone is selling something I can't get them to go away. We have had like 3 environmental groups come to our door and I have never given them money, but I sit and listen to them for like an hour. At the mall its the same thing...stupid nail people.
ugh! I need a backbone!

Okay now I am really mad!!
(Friday)I come into work today and am met by a friend of the family who aparently is visiting. She says "Oh momboss took her conference a little early and she said to tell you. He is not wiped up from breakfast, he hasnt taken his nap, he needs his poopy diper changed and you need to change the trash can in his room."
So guess what? Momboss scheduled her conference call early so she could spend the day with this friend. Which is totally fine, but she wasnt honest with me when she called me yesterday to explain why I needed to come in earlier than we talked about.
(Monday) I dreaded going to work today because I assumed we were going to talk about the contract, I asked about it and guess what? Its not ready! suprise suprise! So momboss tells me this morning that she is going on a walk at 4 or 430 with her friends, so if I can get the other mom to pick up her child early, I can take off. So I call the other mom and grandparents are in town! WOOHOO! Next I call up the Dr who i cancelled on Friday with (he only has hourse till 6, which is when I get home) and get an appnt for 5 15. So 4 rolls around and mom comes and says "oh I'm not going on a walk, now I'm gonna go on a bike ride with hubby, be back around 5 30" I explained to her the whole situation, re-doing an apnt cause i canceled on friday (to accomidate HER needs) and he's only open till 6. she says "OH Bummer....okay see you at 530"
I need to just quit, huh?

So I'm not very happy today with my job, and I suppose it has been building up for a while.
First off they hired me and told me all the places the kids and I can go and then I find out that I am not allowed to drive them (I would not have taken the job if I had known this was the case).
Secondly they said I would make 30,000 a year and are now telling me that I have one week unpaid vacation at christmas and so they wont raise my weekly salary to equal 30,000 it will be one less pay check than that.
Thirdly, I really wanted to be hourly pay, but they wouldnt go for it saying that some weeks I will work less and they want me to have a stable income. So far I have not worked less...I have worked much much more...and feel like I am being taken atvantage of.
Forthly, the momboss #1 wrote up a contract with included the overtime we talked about. Saying anything over 45 hours a week would be overtime at $20 an hour...(great for me!!) Momboss #2 figured out that typically I work 8-5:30 which is like 47 or so hours a week and she doesnt want to pay overtime. (hence why I wanted to work hourly) So she decided that if I work more than 50 hours two weeks in a row I will get a choice of overtime or leaving work early one day. ( I told her i didnt feel comfortable with this cause this is very unlikely to happen 2 weeks in a row and she assured me it will be very likely and that if I am worn out, just tell her. Like I am going to tell her!)
Fifthly, She keeps putting off signing the contract (which means no extra pay right now if I work more). She told me since I came in early one day this week, I could come in Friday around 1. Great! I offered to take my husband to school and made a Dr.'s appnt. She calls today, Thursday (she is out of town), and says she made a confrence scheduled at 11:30 tommorow and figured I wouldnt mind coming in earlier, after all its later than my normal time. i told her of my plans and she said, this is a new client and she cant afford to loose it, but I can bring my husband with me.....
UGH!!!! Help! suggestions!!!

Today is my hubby's first day of school. I felt like such a wife making him breakfast, homemade english muffins with egg, bacon, and cheese. I also packed him lunch with a little note. I am going to miss him though....
and how many memories do these bring back for you ? http://www.classic-tv.com/themesongs/lyrics.asp

Can I just say I miss college for a very odd reason?
RA's....yeah how weird is that?
Well my reason being that we have blah neighbors....well they are nice people, but loud. The ones up stairs play their music crazy loud (we have even hit the ceiling with our mop a couple times) and then have yelling fights down the staircase in front of our front door. The ones next to us for some reason decided it is cool to buy pizza and beer and sit out on the concrete slab in front of both of our doors and have parties at night.
What I wouldn't give to have an RA enforcing quite hours sometimes :)
So our closet doors were not working right and we told the landlord it was annoying. He realized he could not replace them, something about the frame wouldnt hold them. Since they are on either side in a small hallway leading from the master bedroom to the master bathroom, we just took off the closet doors, put in a regular door...and bada bing! A walk in closet.
Yes, my life is uneventful.
No, I don't have a life.
Yes, I would rather have a job than a walk in closet

|Aparently privacy means nothing to some people...
*Special thanks to those adults who think it is funny to track down their children and read something clearly not meant for them.
*Bonus for leaving an abnoxious comment about how wrong all children are.
Yes we all know Mandie is the following:
1 bride from hell
6 worste daughter ever
7 bad example
8 added expence of their precious money
9 nothing to be proud of
I think that covers it.............
Maybe in some alternate universe they will accept me for who I am, they will realize I can't do everything they want, they will be proud of me for something, they will not think that everything I ever accomplished is because of them, they will stop critisizing the choices I make, that I will be able please them somehow.
---------maybe I am just kidding myself
47 days never seemed so long.

I'm with Alicia being at home stinks. After being woken up at 8 am to be told to pick up the sandals and day planner I left upstairs, then I was told that I was disrespectful. Aparently I dont respect my parents house because I left shoes in the living room. After I was called lazy, a slob and so on I went back to bed.
Then I got awoken again. Dad says I am being ungrateful for living here because I dont have a job yet. Okay I have been home for a week, but I was also watching the kids for 4 days, having a birthday, unpacking, calling rental places about chairs, calling the church wedding lady, applying for teaching jobs, getting my car fixed, and cleaning and reorganizing my little sisters entire room. My father then proceeded to tell me I need a job by friday and He will tell his friend at Chic Filet I am coming in. Chic Filet!!!! I am not working fast food! First off I am not in high school, second off I don't want minimum wage, third off I don't want some high school drop out as my manager, and forth off I dont want to look like pimple woman at my wedding. My dad then says okay find another job by friday. I said okay, but I am leaving Tues for a week. After I explain I am going down to LA for Chris's graduation he yells at me asking where I got the money. I told him it was a voucher I earned by taking a later flight. We go through the whole, why didn't you use it for your honeymoon thing and then he says I need to accept my consequenses for making a irresponsible descision and if I get fired from my new job, I will have to get a new one when I get home. After one little touch of, I helped you pay for your car, college and private high school. I was told if I dont have a job by friday I am not allowed to eat their food.
Ok.....so I am moving out in July, have no responsibilities other than getting a job in CO. Why do I need a job again? and also, I asked to go to public school, my parents refused. I was told I HAD to go to college if I ever wanted my parents to support me on the mission field ( I did not want to go to college, I wanted to do an internship overseas), I also had my heart set on this old fixer up car, was told I could not buy it and they emptied my bank account and bought my car without my knowledge.
I am a greatful person.
If I had known allowing them to help me would give them full rights to tell me what to do forever,,,,,i would have never done it.
How old am I?

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
