Ways to Piss Off Your Cashier:

Since I've started working at Wal-mart, I've come up with a wonderful list of joyous things that various people do while checking out at Wal-mart that make me want to WRING THEIR NECK. Here they are.

1) Talking on your cell phone while the cashier is ringing up your stuff.This is my number one pet peeve. It is SO RUDE! If I'm here to do you a service by ringing up your stuff, at least have the courtesy to get off your damn phone.

2) Sort of like # 1, bluetooths. I can't STAND bluetooths. Every night, I'll start talking to someone, they'll start talking, and then they'll say, oh, I wasn't talking to you. Plus, WAKE UP! You look like an idiot walking around a store talking to yourself!

3) People who buy soda, cupcakes, candy, chips, pies, etc, and then use their EBT card. Now, at holiday times, ok, maybe, but every day? Come on! This is what's wrong with the system! Why is that ok to buy on the government's money (AKA my money!)? Now don't get me wrong, I have no judgement against people who use EBT cards. I think if you really need some help to feed your kids or feed yourself cause you can't make enough money at your job, or got fired, or whatever, that's fine. I see lots of people come through who buy cereal, yogurt, bread, milk, eggs, lunchmeat, and that's great. They're using the money the right way. Some might say, who are you to say how they use their money? Well, sorry, but if my husband is in the military and we have 2 kids and we don't qualify for EBT, then how can they??

4) Piling stuff up in a box, basket, etc, and then not getting it out when you get to the register. That's always bugged me.

5) And now, the BIGGEST pet peeve (besides the cell phone): handing me wrinkled, wadded up money. Now, I don't expect everyone to have all their money facing the right way, or be totally crease free, but....just look at a register drawer. Does it look like wadded up money will fit in there the right way? Why should I have to unfold your damn money?! Grrr.....

Alright, that's my list for now. I'm sure there will be more as I remember it throughout the day.

blah blah blah

Well, I couldn't think of a creative title. So there you have it. I just got home from work. I decided I want a million dollars last night. Dad called me and left me a voice mail saying he won the $135 million dollar jackpot. When I tried to call him back, his phone was busy, which made me think, "Hmmm....even though it is April Fool's Day, maybe he really did win....". Yeah. No. Oh, well, more money just brings more problems.

So I ended up getting a dehydrator! Yay! I just ordered the instruction booklet in the mail, and it came yesterday. I'm really excited! I can make "fruit leather", it's like fruit rollups, and banana chips, apple rings, all sorts of stuff. I bought a chocolate mint plant at the Herb and Garden Festival in Ocean Springs last weekend, and I can use my dehydrator to dry herbs, so I might try it! That would be neat if it worked.

Whew. I'm looking through the CPSC website at the latest recalls. I just found 2 recalls for the kids' toys today, and it has me a little freaked out! There is some scary stuff in there; paintbrushes recalled for lead, cribs falling apart, and this one, which seems pretty self explanatory - DUH! What did they think was going to happen when they wrapped a candle in TREE BARK? Retards. Ugh. It takes forever to go through that website, but when I find toys for the kids on the curb, that's one of the drawbacks - having to scour for recalls. The odd thing is, I was looking really far back, and although they DID have cameras back then, in the late 90's and earlier, they had no pictures of what was recalled, only like, a pencil drawing. WTF good does that do, I'd like to ask?!'s late, I'm tired. Off to dreamland....
