My summer job keeps getting more intense with each passing day! If it isn't the creepo at closing who decides to have a 25 minute one sided discussion about how much HIS life sucks then it must be that sneaky customer who pukes in his oil then drops it off..Or how about the fact that I am convinced very few people can read in Grande Prairie- it is a real sad story when I see people shoving sheets of styrofoam in the clearly marked bin "NO STYROFOAM PLEASE" - You think this sort of wretched stuff would happen at the DUMP! Oh, sorry.."Landfill"-but not the Eco Center..not with us greenys on guard...and I think the funniest misconception about Eco Center employees from the public eye is that we are actually retarded(no joke!) or that we are recycling nazis that dont want anything to go in the Landfill.. I mean I recycle but I am not going to dive in a blue bin after your baby swimming pool which is clearly not recyclable because it was made from recycled plastic- honestly..I don't care! So don't give me the lip when I say "No, we actually don't take toothpaste, because between you and me it isn't a household hazardous waste, it can really go in the garbage!" - Just put colgate in the trash and let me save that oxygen for a more constructive conversation!- Uffda!
But for real..this guy thought I was mentally challenged..you can ask my mom and the 2 guys that were there..we all almost peed our pants...I guess it was my random "Hi!" as soon as he got out of his truck looking for help..he looked all awkward and then in that "be nice tone" said "Hey there...."- then went towards our office looking for the non-handicap employees..at this everyone was laughing, I on the other hand was ticked..so I shouted a little "Excuse me sir can I help you with something"- I think then he knew I was a full functioning human being completely aware that he thought I was a handi..-again..whatever!
Then there is MRS. "ARE YOU WITH SOMEONE? HELLO ARE YOU WITH SOMEONE WHAT PART OF ARE YOU WITH SOMEONE DO YOU NOT GET"- I wanted to scream at her "GO HOME!" but instead I said "YES I AM HELPING SOMEONE"-wanted to add are you FREAKING blind..but hesitated..contemplated saying...or rather grieving the fact that in my dating life I am most certainly not with anyone..thought it could have been interesting to bring up that point of view but I bit my tongue and carried on knowing God loves her too..Glad I'm not God..
Anyways..a few tidbits of my last week...I got paid today so that sums up why I deal with all of the above!
Ben broke his guitar so it was out of commission since Friday. It is now Wednesday and it is most definitely fixed. I am enjoying(no sarcasm) listening to rock and roll as the background music to my Sarah McLachlan. He will be a rock star yet...pure stardom..
Also I watched CSI NY tonight and was so choked..The scenario was very intense and the whole hour had me on my last string trying to figure out the murder. (When I lived in Shaunavon Judy(the lady I lived with) and me would pretend we were crime scene investigators, every monday!)- Anyways and it was one of those stupid "to be continued" episodes..I almost wanted to email the CSI producers and rant..I just want to know what happens..there is a CSI in a suburban with a murderer(who pretended to be innocent) and he is pointing a gun at the CSI's head..you are about to freak out as a viewer..then..."To Be Continued" jumps on a pure black screen..WHATEVER!
haha..-I will get over it..
I can't find it anywhere! I have looked in the car a million times..all around the house..It has been missing now for more than 48hrs..I feel like I am on the tv show "Without A Trace"- I just cannot understand where I would have put it..AND of course it would be on "silent mode!" ahh! Well pray I find it or if I don't find it for wisdom in what I should buy next or whatever..sorry if I haven't got your message or returned that text..I don't hate you I just hate misplacing my phone...gaaah!
Today we had 90km/hr wind..it was sick..
At work we recycle used oil. This process consists of lifting 20L pails of oil up about 3 feet then dumping it into a drum. Usually when we are dumping oil things will come with the oil, old nuts and bolts, oil filters, and things like dirty rags. Today was a bit different. I was a little busy so I opened a pail and let it drain while I was helping another customer with a few things. When I finally returned to my oil the drum was backed up. At this I grabbed a garden shovel and stirred the oil around a bit so it could drain, at this point there was a weird smell in the air. Once the oil began to drain I noticed strange things in large amounts at the bottom of the drain, things like...carrots...potatoes..celery...PUKE! Some lameo decided to puke in his freaking oil and then kindly drop it off for me(the innocent bystander) to have to deal with. I almost puked and cried all at the same moment..it was horrific!
It is over though..
Happy Mother's Day!
We had a great dinner for my mother and nanny..It was delicious, huge steaks, stuffed potatoes, mixed veggies, mushrooms, onions and shrimp...it was good..
Hope your day was puke free..
I mean the day is still young, it is still the a.m. but I already spent an hour and a half of depression in a dentist chair..booo..but my dentist is really nice so that helps..
I don't have any big plans for the day because that would require me having friends in Grande Prairie, which I lack HUGE! It is like a complete isolation zone up here..but maybe I could clean the house or do random acts of kindness towards my family..
I could clean Ben's room! SCARY! ahhh..
we will see what happens..
I love being home! It is just nice to relax and talk. By talking I mean actually sharing things and feeling safe to share anything.
Last night Mom and I went to the Dream Home which we are apparently going to "win"--We are "going to win" every year! It is really nice this year though so I would be stoked! Then we went to PetLand because who doesnt love pets. I let Charlie sniff a little black cockerspaniel but the guy who worked there said Charlie could have a disease and shouldnt be touching little cockerspaniel. He also referred to Charlie as a girl, who does that? Have you seen his black balls? haha! Then we went to Cash for Camping and toured through many campers and the like. No day is complete without a stop at Dairy Queen for ice cream, so mom and I did that! Then we went to Blockbuster and bought the movie "The Bee Movie"-I love it so much..
That was most of my night..-Ben bought me JUNO for my birthday so we watched part of that in the late of the night.
Being home is good.
