Its going to be a busy week! The first two days were a whirl wind, currently I am resting out at my dads sitting by the pool with a book the laptop and 2 dogs...
Life is good
Tomorrow morning I jet off to Toronto to visit a childhood friend overnight then back to town to spend time at my moms. We are all going out for my brothers birthday dinner and then Friday my sister and I are off to Britney Spears..
The only thing that would make this better....I wish the hubby was with me : (
Good news is PACKAGES ARE IN THE MAIL!! For all those who won the giveaway the books are in the mail. I think I am still short 2 addresses but those will have to wait until I can get them out when I am back from my trip in September.....
Bad news is I am not taking my computer. Nope. In a HUGE leap of faith I have decided that for 20 days I will be without my lap top. I know **gasp*** but in order to fully be there with my family and friends I have decided to leave it at home. I will still have Internet here and there when I am with my family but postings will be sparse!
I will be home September 2nd in which you can expect a FULL update loaded with pictures and tonnes of fun stories about my adventures!
So times are tough.. and I had a coupon for free hair dye. From the look of my locks you can tell its been a while since I have been to the salon.. like 6 months!! And seeing how I am leaving for vacation in 4 days!!!! And the fact that I am a server and I am not going to be getting paid FOR 20 DAYS, I need to cut corners where I can!
The finished product!
I love the new color, its similar enough to my own that it will not be too terrible as it grows out.
Not bad for free huh? Now I just have to hit up a cheap hair cut place for a trim....
So I bought this dress. It was a dollar. The dress was cute but not the color. I told myself for a dollar I would buy the dress and get some cute accessories and shoes to go with it. I mean it was a lime green dress how bad could it be to accessorize it? You know how you try on dresses and then one fits but its not the one you were dreaming about?? Well that was this dress. It was cute, it fit in all the right places, it was "doable" but not the cutest color...
And then I got to thinking... What if this dress was PINK?? I would totally love this dress if it was pink! I have NEVER died anything before. Or even thought about it so seeing how I had a coupon for a craft store I headed over to see if they had clothing die..... And they did.... So here we go....
Prepping the dress for dying... (see how ugly the color was? I lime/yellow green?)
VOILA!! A super cute party dress for a grand total of $4.00.

Open letters to the jackasses I have encountered in the last 2 days!
*** warning lots of bad words are going to be used!**
Dear Jackass #1:
You are a loser. The fact that you came out to dinner and left YOUR FU*KING NEEDLE, yes people a FUCKING NEEDLE on the table for the poor unsuspecting bus boy to STAB his finger on when he does not expect a fucking needle to be on the table and it impales into his finger. Your an asshole. You have NO CLASS and you should be shot. Really taken out into a field and shot (ok maybe not for real but SERIOUSLY!) How do you do that? This poor man who has a family and 3 children then needed to be rushed to the hospital for rounds of SHOTS that he will have to have done every 3 weeks for the next 6 months. Not to mention the blood screening because all "diseases" can not be detected for weeks or months to come. Its really scary. Your a fucking asshole.
Dear Jackass #2:
Who goes out for dinner and then just announces when the bill comes "We are not paying that" Yep just like that. Ok I get that you are rather scary looking. And you probably get away with this every where you go. But you are a criminal. You ordered the food. You ate the food. You can not just, not pay. Well yes you can. And you did.
You are an asshole. I will not even get into the inner conflict I had that you HAD A FUCKING CHILD WITH YOU, and you refused to pay. I mean I guess you could have just walked out, but instead you made a sport of it. Asked for a manager and then also told them you were not going to pay. Yep. Did we call the police? Nope, because my manager (and I sort of agree) values his life more than your $30 meals. That you ate. And then just did not pay.
Your an asshole. And I pray for your child that they will know right from wrong and never grow up as an example that you have set.
Dear Jackass #3
Your an idiot. You let your child throw a rock through a plate glass window and then do not even come forward to report it. Nope you let the other children turn him in.
I mean really? You WITNESSED him do it. Did you not think that the parents in our building would not rat you out when their children were accused? They do live in our building so the assumption would be that they did it? I mean they are obnoxious and loud but they know right from wrong.
They seemed nice enough. I gave them good service (or what I would say is good service.) They were a little rude but I thought nothing of it.
At the end of the meal the lady says to me "I work at sister restaurant so I get a discount"
No problem, I take her pay stub and her id and show a manager. All while grumbling under my breath because "SAID" restaurant employees that we give discounts to OFTEN stiff the servers at our restaurant.
Call it them being jealous (we are better) call it just being a jack ass it happens more often than not. And there is nothing we can do about it....
AND THEY STIFFED ME!!! After receiving a discount on their bill of over $12.
Whatever I was expecting it.
And then after 5 minutes the guy comes running into the restaurant and asks the hostess if someone has turned in a cell phone. I can see this going on and the hostess is pointing at me and THE GUY REFUSES TO COME OVER TO ME!! (cause he knows hes a jackass) I ignore this finish cleaning the table and walk into the back.
I wait a bit.
Then I come back out and with his tail between his legs he is standing at the table asking "Did you happen to find a cell phone?"
"Sure didn't" Without skipping a beat or even looking.
He climbed under the table (because there was no way I was going to)
A new table is sat and the guy leaves.
His phone rings and the new table hands it to me......
The moral of the story is always tip your server.......
I already know "some people" are not honest. And completely by mistake I decided to try something at work the other night.
I forgot to ring in drinks for one of my tables I was chatting with. When I dropped off the bill they made sure to tell me that I forgot and asked to have their bill adjusted.
And then I wondered if ALL people would be as honest?
Yep, certainly not the case. On 5 of the 6 tables (only the original one told me about my error) that I PURPOSELY did not ring in drinks NO ONE pointed it out!!!
Can you believe that?? 5 tables!!! Every one of them crooks!!
People are SO MEAN!!
One of the girls I work with just got fired last night because completely by accident she gave the wrong bill to the wrong table. Exactly what I did and got written up the first time of my life? Well said party should have paid $80 and they paid the bill for only $30 without saying anything.
