    Thursday 135 - The Little Shop(ping) Horrors?

    LOLOLOL,

    I thought we could do a "shopping" thread this week....
    You know, Get into the spirit of shopping, pushing and punching!

    ----------------------------

    First let's say a prayer for all the people who work in retail....selling, stocking and ringing up those sales.....I hope all your transactions are pleasant...AMEN!

    -----------------------------

    I am bent more and more to just give out Gift Certificates or cash.....I know
    It's lazy but.....I give what people want!!!!


    I have the coffee on and toast......anyone want some biscuits and gravy???
    Eggs??? Ham????


    ---------------------

    For some reason it's too early to drink and shop!

    I'll be back with the DOTD!

    Yep, I agree, Richard. There is no way I'd want to work in retail at this time of year. Wouldn't want to work there anytime of year, but especially this time of year. I'm sure I wouldn't have lasted more than a few hours on Friday before I was fired for telling some snooty crabby woman where she can put her blankety blank blank attitude!

    I've never been shopping after drinking. Sounds like fun so I think I'll start with a slushie right now, then by the time I leave work I'll be good and primed for a productive shopping trip.

    sniff sniff!!! O0000! Do I smell biscuits and gravy? I want some, please???? I love biscuits and gravy!!!

    I don't go to the department stores after Thanksgiving until after the First of the year, myself. Only go stock the kids up in their food and to the grocery.
    I hate crowds. (except here at the bar).

    Could I get some hot chocolate and 4 cnt's on the warm side? It's cold here. It was supposed to warm up to 50 today but it's not gonna make it!
    No matter what anyone does, someone some where will be offended some how!!!!

    Well, since I've been up working since 2 a.m. any jokes I could ever possibly think of will have to wait until I can try and rattle some out of my brain, I don't know any recent actual jokes, it's rather more off the cuff and on the fly when the opportunities present. But I'll see if I can think of one eventually

    As for dire things, I don't have any dire things Life is pretty good hehe, but I make a really mean hot chocolate.

    Thanks Jess for the great sig of my kids!

    Irish coffee sounds perfect! More snow on the way here tonight too. I suppose 18 is better than -18! Give it another month or so

    I didn't think that a "-" could make THAT much difference under 32 degrees!!! I apologize!!

    David,

    I am mad at you....

    What happened Monday Night????
    I wanted a Steeler win!!!

    Congrats on the car!.......breathe that new car smell....

    Irish Coffee.....But not while you sit in your car.....

    DONE!


    LOLOLOLOL
    I almost forgot....do you have a hammer?

    Take it and every six inches tap a bump into the car body...trust me, It's far better to chip the paint yourself than to come out of a store and see
    that someone else did it for you!!!

    Christmas shopping? I should really be doing some of that. I'll just have an Irish Coffee first if you don't mind, while I think about it! Don't you think that Christmas shopping would be so much easier if you didn't have to buy for the same people year after year? Trying to but something a bit different can be so hard!

    Karen, did you say Irish Coffee? Make that two, Richard!

    Ah, the bustle of the holiday season. I have to agree....I would hate to work retail this time of year!

    I've actually made some headway on my Christmas shopping, which is saying something, because I'm always late in getting everything done. Unfortunately, I was unable to afford tickets to go home for the holidays (I usually like to go the week before/of Christmas)...so I'll actually be flying on Christmas day and we'll be celebrating on the 26th instead. That means I have to get all of my shopping done before I go home! Yikes!!!

    Just back from getting some essentals (cat food & litter) at wally world not to bad today. Next thing you know david will want us to build a carport for him here.( )
    I know I'm late for brackfast but I'll take a hot cocoa it's 21 above here today last nights low was 11 so its almost shorts weather. Ha Ha
    Welcome Vela you have entered a cross between a comedy show and the Twilight zone. But it's the best place to unwind and know you have freinds, I think only once did we have a person get upset from here as we all know it's in fun and love here. One word of warning DO NOt for any reason go alone in our lost and found room(known as L & F ) some haz mat guys came once and went in we haven't seen them since. that was about # 60 I think.
    I'm making a big pot of veggie soup any one want some.? It will be ready in about an hour.
    Done with my shopping I do it all year ,plus working in a gift shop helped. Not next year I'll have to watch other sales better.
