Crazy Just Got To Another Level

(I am handling a sales order with a customer. An older lady taps me on the shoulder.)

Customer:“I can’t find your elevator anywhere!”

Me:“It’s a one story building. I am afraid we don’t have one.”

Customer:“That’s horrible! My knees are so bad! I just can’t handle the stairs!”

Me:“We… don’t have stairs.”

(As I am replying, she has turned and walked away. About a week later, I get a call…)

State Employee:“I am calling to investigate a complaint we received that your store is violating ADA. Is it true you don’t have an elevator?”

Me:“Yes. I don’t have a second floor or stairs either.”

State Employee:“So, I just file this under ‘crazy’… gotcha.”

Yeah, and don't be afraid to use that chainsaw either! Hell, get a wood chipper if need to.

So for everyone who is sitting with baited breath waiting my update for the day...

Niece didn't get fired, but just BARELY. She so needs to be nicer and less impatient with people, AND look for a different job and not make excuses not to because next time she WILL be fired.

My sister is already in Portland, so I have about three hours of (semi) sanity left.

<sigh>

This is the exact recipe I used for the pizza crust: http://www.eat-drink-smile.com/2011/04/caulif...
Not sure of the exact recipe SIL uses for mashed cauliflower, but this is close. Plus, add a ton of garlic. http://www.inspiredtaste.net/19731/simple-cre...
Thanks!

I'm here for you Mimi! If you need to talk dirty to somebody, just lay it on me. I can take it!
No, really please, talk dirty to me.
Well, only if it will make you feel better.
It would wouldn't it?
Hey, yaneverknow!

There should be judging icons for "desperate" and "horny."

Aw, thank you :)

I am on the verge of running away and hiding in a hotel room with a supply of key lime pie and JD for a week. Ry has been sick for 5 days and he needs to go back to school tomorrow, to save both of our sanity.

My MIL is back to her normal drama-filled self, except that we are still feeling like we need to be sympathetic because it hasn't even been a month since my FIL died. We were invited to my husband's Aunt's house for Good Friday (anything Easter related is a huge deal to Polosh people). I asked if she had talked to MIL about it and she said yes, so I accepted. Turns out she said something 2days after FIL died and MIL doesn't want to go because it would be "too much work" for her (I guess she feels the need to bring homemade food like pierogies to her sister's house?). She said that if we want to go we can, but we only said yes because we thought she was going! They are in the middle of some fight that has nothing to do with our generation and life is too short for this crap.

On the bright side, soccer and tball seasons have started :) I love watching the kiddos run around.

All I read was pierogies and I didn't red anything else.

This is for Edog in the morning. He needs to know that he is right about something.

Just reading that helped so much! Thank you :) Today is a new day and I am not going to forget my hair appointment, like I did last week (thankfully the owner is a friend and he knew what was going on in my personal life, so he didn't charge me for the missed appt - I'll have to give my stylist a nicer tip than the usual 30%, though).

I shared this that another friend posted on FB, but since not all of you are my FB friends I wanted to post it on here. I think that everyone who is raising a boy should read it.
