I totally LOVE that cat...& yes, that is exactly how they think!!
My rn called tonight to check on me, how neat is that? She'd been told by my other nurse that I was totally depressed, etc...my mom's birthday is tomorrow, & I miss her...

This was on the Marion, Ohio website awhile ago...
It's especially funny to me, because the one time when my brother & his family drove down to Myrtle Beach for vacation a couple years ago, there was Doug & wife...at that time they only had the first 3 kids...the oldest daughter & her brother put a sign in the window that said "HELP! We're being kidnapped!"...so...I rest my case, it's the Stevens gene....http://www.stevensconstruction.net/index.php
There are so many spiders out here, it's unreal!! Shit! Remember last Halloween a ferret came to my door & scratched on it, & ran in here when I opened the door? The pizza guy (oddly enough, I was having pizza then too. :-/!) I just got a pizza from a different place...he brought it in, & talked to me & Truman for a few...as he was leaving, he jumped back when he opened the door to leave, stomped on "a HUGE spider~!" Yay for Aaron!
...that's my signature, you know? lol!
I remember when I had my last produce manager job at the store they just built here in town. It was like, the perfect job, and it was about 5 minutes from my house! They were still building the store as all of us were getting hired. That was one of the best times in the world...the big bosses from Lima & Wapakoneta (hah...bet you never even knew there was a town named that in Ohio, didja?), & the company's owner were there every day, meeting everyone, and getting ideas for what to put here, & there...and now I know exactly why you'll never see a clock up on the wall by the registers. It was mentioned at one of the earlier meetings, and the human resources guy said no, you don't want customers watching the clock to see how long they're waiting in line. Makes sense...I never would've thought of that!
So, we all got settled in & familiar with the place, & comfy with each other enough so that we knew who to pick on, & who to leave alone...our lunch room/breakroom was upstairs. All of us who worked in produce were hanging out, taking lunch, then one of the guys pointed out the playmate cooler sitting there, & I told him it was one of the guys' who worked there's lunchbox...*evil grin*. He went over & picked it up, and stood on a chair & moved one of the ceiling tiles, put the cooler up in the ceiling, & our work was done! And it was impossible to keep a straight face when we heard him thundering through the store yelling death threats to whoever stole his lunch! And then he busted through the swinging doors to our back room...One look at him, and I just started laughing, then I made the guy that put it up there take Scotty upstairs & show him where it was!! Me? Are you crazy? I didn't hide it!
I've just been sitting around remembering stuff that we did to each other at work 20-some years ago, that made everybody die laughing...Like the time that I was mopping the floor in my produce aisle. The acting store manager, Mark, rounded the corner in a hurry to get something, and WUMP!, he went down...so I did the only natural thing to do...went over & grabbed the p.a. & announced "Mark down in produce!"
Then almost every weekend we all went out drinking, we all HAD to stop at the Dairy-Mart on the way back to my date's mom & dad's house so we could all get chips & junk food. And, of course, the guy I was with was the guy that thought he could do everything. Hmph...So I can't even imagine the fear those clerks felt when they saw us coming...7 or 8 drunk-ass fools! John always made a beeline for the place you make your own nachos, & made a huge plate then he'd grab a can of pop & a couple candy bars, like the rest of us...the difference was, the rest of us would pay right away, John would start eating right then...! We'd all bitch him out, but he'd say I won't get in trouble unless I leave...
