ohhh today ...

I can't help but pass on a few ridiculously funny things that have been said to me in the past five hours. I'll repeat it ... just five hours.

Client: I called you at 6 pm last night and no one answered.
Me: Ohh, unfortunately we close at 6 pm, therefore, that's likely why no one answered.
Client: Well, why ...
Me: Why .. do we close at 6 pm?!
Client: Yeah, why.
Me: Well, that just happens to be our closing time.

*   *   *   *   *

Client: Can you hold on a minute?
Me: I can, yes.
Client: Good 'cause I have another call coming in! * click *
Me {in my head of course}: Well I wouldn't have said yes to THAT. I thought perhaps your child needed attending to for a moment or maybe you needed to check a date to book your appointment. 
Me {a solid 5 minutes later still on hold}: How rude ... * hang up *

*   *   *   *   *

Client: Which facial would you suggest?
Me: I think I might suggest either the __ or the __.
Client: Well you would ... wouldn't you?! What are you, 17?!
Me: Umm, nope. I'm 25. But thanks ... {although my mind was saying 'not that it's ANY of your business but I'll appease your unbelievable rudeness }.
Client: Hmm ...

If I haven't posted this poster before, after today it means even more {yes I rhymed unintentionally}. I immediately made my run to Starbucks straight after the end of my shift. I ordered my usual and I didn't even have to say a word to the girl at the counter ... she knew exactly what I was wanting and it was lovely to not have to say a word except thank you of course! Never forget thank you. It makes all the difference in the world to the person on the other side of the counter. I had to out my thoughts here tonight while I sipped away at my tea misto. What else is on my agenda tonight after a day like this? My best girlfriend is calling me after she puts her sweetie pie to sleep, for one of our weekly phone marathons to catch up. I'm also going to try and put my bathroom back together after I painted it a fresh, light grey color yesterday. I'm also catching up on my Oprah  episodes from the past few days while I blog.

  1. Hi Jes

    sorry you had a tough day! Sounds like you need to come to Africa to widen your perspective. don't sweat the small stuff. And always remember it all is small stuff. Your healthy, happy, and not hungry every day. You have a roof over your head and someone that loves you enough to commit to you forever. A very very lucky girl. I would say. Choose not to let the little things in life get to you. It is a choice you know. Make it now so you don't have to worry about it in the future. Remind yourself every day how so very fortunate you are. I love you so very much hope your day is better tomorrow. I am missing your infectous laugh and uplifting smile. Big hugs Dad
