Some various notes and maybe a rant.

December 19th, 2009 at 11:24 am

My luck as far as finding money has changed for the better lately. I used to find money all over the place. Then suddenly I was lucky if I found a penny on occasion. Wednesday I found a dollar bill and Thursday I found a 5 dollar bill. Whoever lost it had it crumpled up
about the size of a quarter. Only bad thing is that it probably belonged to a little kid. I think its a shame how I see people all the time letting their little ones run around with cash crumpled up in their hands. The odds are that they are going to lose it.
In this particular case the money found a good home. ME! :-)

My nephew that had a stroke a short time ago had surgery yesterday to fix whatever caused the stroke. He had 2 options and chose the surgery. The other option was
free experimental medicine. He chose the surgery cause he wanted it over and done with. I really don't know which choice I would have made myself. It would definately be a tough choice to make.
Nephew's surgery went well to the best of my knowledge, but I haven't had contact with him today. He should be already home, resting right now.

Well I'm heading to work very soon. Its a bit nightmarish at Christmas time working in the toy department of a Wal Mart store.
I'm sure that this is all part of the punishment for past mis-doings in this or some previous life.

My boss made me change my work schedule.
Most everyone else doesn't think its a big deal. But to me it is a big deal and
adds a lot to my stress level. They used to be very happy that I work in the evenings and on weekends. At one time that worked in my favor. Now they say things changed and they want me to work earlier and no longer have Mondays and Tuesdays off. I'll get whatever days off they decide to give me. And I wont really be "The Toyguy" anymore. Technically I am still in toys but they don't really want anyone working in toys so i'll be working all over the place. They are nice about it in that they gave me total control about changing my hours. But that control means either changing it to what they say or not working. Makes me feel so good to have choices.

Take care everyone.

    Total control of....nothing! Sorry to hear about the work woes. Was your found money in the store?

    Thanks Liza. Yes I found the money in my store. The dollar actually when I was working and the 5 when I was a customer buying some groceries.
    Ironically I used to find money mostly when shopping in K-Mart

    Sorry to hear about the work stress. And a lack of control really generates a lot of stress. Will your stress ease up after the holidays or increase because sales will fall off?
    I'm not surprised you used to find money in one place - I'm finding my Safeway floor is a mini-coin ATM!

    Sorry to hear about the work stuff going on but hopefully that will all improve. Interesting tidbit about finding money where I work - if we keep it, we can be fired! Even if it's a penny we're to turn it in! Rat bastahds... lol

    I hope your nephew is doing better. It's a hard decision on something like that... free meds are nice, but if it is experimental you never know if it will work and it won't be covered by insurance. Surgery may have been covered, but it may not be cutting edge. I hope that his procedure goes smoothly and leads to a resolution of his problem!

    Thanks for the comments everyone. Denise I think there is a similar rule at my work about finding money but its not strickly enforced and one of those things that the rules are a bit blurry.

    my nephew's surgery went well and as far as I know solved his problem. Time will tell but so far so good.
