by CJ2008 » Apr 20, 2018 Good morning and yay Friday lovely girls! And since Missy didn't use this icon today, I get to use it yay! marcy LOL no at least IT'S NOT ALL CAPS. I would have fired him over that. LOL This year it was kind of my fault I could have sent everything much earlier but didn't. I totally procrastinated. On the plus side I am getting quite comfortable with the idea of extending the deadline. That cleaning lady is annoying. Unprofessional. If you let her come over can you scare her with one of your killer bears jimmianne I love being tired when I get on a plane and sleep the whole time. Safe flight! missy So lovely whether it's a letter or a post it. I love that your kitties get their own counter. How cool is that. If I ever come back as a cat - which is very likely - would you and Greg like to adopt me? I keep to myself a lot and other than my own computer I don't need much more. pierre Yes tapioca balls I love them. And no wonder it's good - condensed milk and tea. That sounds like it has little calories. Pierre I guarantee you your kitty is sprawling himself all over the kitchen counter when you're not home. I am so glad your new job's environment is healthy. And you're so welcome. I think we associate our worth so much with how well we do our jobs it's so much more than just a "job." thanks junie all better today. I just finished a bagel and enjoying a nice cup of coffee life is good right now. thanks austina and BTW thanks again for saving Dottie I read your story in the other thread I didn't know it to such detail. She's a lucky girl and we're lucky to have yet another kind animal lover as a NIRDI. Girls, I finally - after a few years of letting it just sit - moved some money out of a place and put it into another. It's a very small sum, but still. I let it sit there doing nothing and paid a fee for that every year. Every year I would get charged the fee, I hated paying it and still did nothing. Well, that's done. Also - I've texted my last manicurist twice now (the one with the colon cancer and going through chemo) and she's not responding. I hope she is OK. at first I thought nothing of it when she didn't reply like two weeks ago, even though she always responded in the past. But we're not "friends" I'm just a client and she may be feeling overwhelmed and who knows what else. But she didn't respond today either. I think when/if she responds I'm going to ask her if I can visit her. Nothing long, maybe just to have a cup of tea or something. I hope she's OK. Speaking of manicurists the girl I chose to use now (she had left 3 girls as possibilities) is actually awesome as far as how good she is. But - she's a little snotty. She wasn't the first time I sat down with her. But I think maybe she thought I didn't tip her enough. The manicure and pedicure is $37 and I left her $8 which is a little over 20%. I suspect that's the reason because I had given her a $10 and asked for change and she asked a couple of times so you want $2 back? I didn't think anything of it at the time but looking back now I think she was trying to either make me feel self conscious or she was implying I should have given her the whole $10. And the thing is that she had done such an awesome job I really considered leaving her $9 but I didn't want that to become the default tip where I felt obligated to leave her that all the time. But then I really started feeling guilty that maybe I hadn't left enough. So last week I went in to have a polish change which is $7 and I said to myself I'll leave her $3 which is $1 more than I might usually do. But when I gave her the $10 she didn't even ask me if I wanted back any change. So this whole thing is starting to annoy me because it's not a good feeling. Granted $8 may not be an awesome tip but it's not a bad tip or not bad enough to warrant an attitude. Well that's my story for the week. Hugs to you all.
