WOW! a new better Supervisor

Leave a comment

I’m floored to have a supervisor that appears to be 1) human, 2) compassionate, 3) cares for her people and 4) not a micromanager!! Her liking Pepsi is just a bonus! LOL 😀

Seriously, I’m feeling good about this new supervisor while mine is on Maternity leave for the next two months, I’m wondering if I can keep her for longer than that! Seriously!

And below, I feel as if I’m the only person that likes snow! Honestly, if I can stay home and not have to drive on the icy roads, the better! But just snow alone, yes, I love snow! It’s just so peaceful!

Peace and Namaste!

Good Grief

I shouldn’t have to update a post more than twice, once for my grammatical mistakes and a second time because I forgot to add or expound on something!

5 times is a little much!!

Guess I’ll figure out this new and so-called improved app format for posting.

Since I’m on my phone 📱 more than a desktop 🖥 or laptop 👩🏻‍💻 and the work laptop I use 90% of the time has a key logger, I will usually be posting from my phone 📱.

I think figuring out how to add things will be my learning curve. Why the photos are no longer in line with the topics I’m discussing.

Even JiJi’s confuzzled! Yes, I made that word up! 😝

OMG It’s been f o r e v e r


I’ve been exceptionally busy since November 2019, when the powers that be decided to have me come back to the brick and mortar and do my job here in person. Let’s move forward to NOW! OMG! I’m now classified as an essential health care professional and in February this year, I was informed I now work on the IPU-inpatient unit. So, to clarify, I’m at work, NOT quarantined like everyone else! and I work on the inpatient unit! Today, I’m on call in my office because I have to catch up on the required E-Learnings. Required because they (powers) said so! Honestly, it’s all common sense to this Veteran! OH right, right! I was in the Army and learned this stuff there! Civilians, however, obviously need to learn this stuff! ugh, So I’m required to sacrifice -okay, insert drama llama here- hours to do this! and NO, I can not retrieve access to the company’s website from home to do this! SO! I’m in the building, but that’s groovy! it’s me by myself on the 1st floor, the support staff person in the basement- which is cool with me cause she goes from cranky to worse in a new york minute ugh, and then the inpatient unit is staffed with the Cool Peeps this weekend! *It’s not like any of them read my blog, so I can say the Cool Peeps!! The b team is cool too, but this is the A-Team this weekend! Boom BABY!

MY ANP aka Nurse Practioner bought masks for a majority of us, and I have bought 3 of them, 2 for me and 1 for Patrick for when he has to go out and do things. These are the bomb, 1-you can actually breathe with them on, 2-they’re lightweight, 3- there is a light metal that allows you to ‘pinch’ it close to your nose for complete correct coverage and 4-did I mention you can BREATHE with these on! They are much better made, high quality and low cost, all three masks are costing me, 12.00, that’s 4.00 each!! I will share the 411 on who makes them and if they are accepting orders outside of the local area!

They actually donated masks to the business but OMFG! GET THIS SHIT! someone (powers) decided that the INPATIENT UNIT workers, nurses, therapists, techs, and other related staff, did NOT need masks! WTF! let me spell that out; WHAT THE FUCK! they instead went to the maintenance people! who do not do face to face, one to one with people!! who the fuck decided that they need these masks!

Thankfully, Kelly knew who the mask makers were and ordered an amount for us to purchase from her! I’m grateful to her!! Truly!

Because supposedly, get this, we were given cloth masks that don’t adhere to any safety guideline and informed that we are to acquire 2 of them, and wash them daily! Blah blah blah! ugh

and here’s the drama llama for this post!

I’m done for the week already…

There is so much anger and animosity out there right now. I usually go to Facebook as most of my friends aren’t drama llamas and tend to support me, knowing my health issues. Well imagine my surprise tonight when I got jumped on not once but multiple times. “This is why we’re divided. This is how fascism starts. Do you want a civil war? Start being civil!”    OKAY! That’s it!!   when the boys are telling me to be civil, I’m done! Stick a fork in me!!! Because honestly, they have pissed me off and nothing I say will come out without causing hurt feelings. And I love them, I honestly do! I just can’t handle the negativity at the moment.

So I will be doing birthday stuff and that’s it this week on Facebook. Ppl know how to get ahold of me if they truly care or want too! No drama here! Just it is what it is right now. I’m pissed and I’m not putting up with it at the moment. I love ya’ll too much to get into over a stupid comment some ppl didn’t realize how it would come across.

I’ve lost enough of the assholes, I don’t want to lose people I actually consider friends!!

And I’m not feeling very Patriotic this week for the 4th of July!! Yes, I’m an American but at this time, I’m not proud of my country! I’m definitely NOT proud of the traitor that was placed in the white house!

But at least I’m trying to maintain my civility with friends!! Hugs and love ya’ll!

And on a positive note, I might get some coloring done if I’m able!! 

mental health time…

Leave a comment

I’m taking the rest of the week off and through until Sunday night! I need a break from my timelines on Twitter and FaceBook, it’s getting kinda nasty on Facebook! And I’m trying not to start an issue with a friend, I still can’t believe they said it and mean it… but I’ll find someone to talk it out with .

So tonight, I’ll be working on the Stargate Rewind post and then early this morning (It’s soo confusing working third shift! LOL) posted a lot of cute and funny animal pix on my facebook wall, I stayed away from the timeline. I did do one political post and I’ll probably share it here too!! but not at the moment. Anywho I’ll post that later this morning before I go to bed and then I need a mental health break!

too much anger, angst and downright rudeness from some people and I’m done! So time to recharge this weekend and come back fresh! I will be posting more animal pix tomorrow on Facebook and maybe some other art type stuff! We need to see beauty right now, with all the ugliness going on.

So I challenge you to post Thursday, Friday and Saturday aka Caturday some beautiful images! It doesn’t have to be a lot, just one image of the day! Give it a shot, leave me a comment if you do and I’ll have a surprise for you! Thank you in advance for taking some of the ugliness away! Big Hugs

I love you tree! ❤

Okay, so when I went home yesterday morning; hubs and JiJi were waiting to greet me. I got a hug from Hubs and kitty kisses from JiJi. Hubs told me everything will be alright. To try and remember how we felt after 9/11 and how we acted. Then when I went to get a drink (alcohol) he put it back and quoted me again, “This is a depressant and you don’t need it.”  It’s soo cute and somewhat annoying when he can quote me to me! lol He also informed me that it’s not the Zombie apocalypse which made me giggle and I was finally able to breathe normally. Ya know?

Anywho there are enough issues out there without causing more! I snapped it all out during the night and have had regrets today. That type of behavior is not me. I haven’t deleted them, but I have password protected them. But I did delete them on facebook! And FYI I have not unfriended, unfollowed or blocked anyone on my Facebook friend’s list. I don’t want to be a hypocrite, I always tell people that we have to agree to disagree. Best if I follow my own advice!

Now then with that being said, I have unfollowed another blog here and I hope that they unfollowed me, I don’t need the negativity and the verbal vomit anymore!*I deleted her comment/essay!  Yes, I believe in free speech, but I also believe my blog, my rules. LOL  So let bygones be bygones and move on!

Together we are stronger! WE are Better than this! Let’s see what happens, to me, actions speak louder than words.

Stay strong, Peace my friends.


FYI I have apologized to those that I feel I offended this morning. And they didn’t feel/think I offended them, whooo I feel much better now.

just because

random musings…

What is it that keeps you as a return customer?

Is it a rewards system; punch card, or scannable card. Is it the website/email’s that send you personalized coupons. Is it the name itself? For example; Macy’s, Kohl’s, Brighton. Or is it the most basic thing; customer service? Having someone actually say hello to you when you enter the store, and cashiers that actually say Thank you when you check out.

I have a few rewards cards and will admit that they do have a limited draw on where I shop, but that’s not the reason. I do like Macy’s and Brighton. Kohl’s used to be a good store, and then something happened.


So, what is the draw for me? Customer Service! Wal-Mart and Meijer’s are well known for having door greeters, now the difference between the two is the enthusiasm of the door greeter. And as someone who once upon a time worked for Wal-Mart, I know that was the least favorite job. But the door greeter’s at Meijer’s always appear happy to see you, and they don’t seem to use a script. Even a few when you walk in are able to ask what you’re looking for and will direct you in that direction. NICE! 😀 Wal-Mart door greeters, in this town, tend to avoid eye contact and will NOT help you! “Go ask the customer service desk.”

Brighton, I walk in and not only get a “Hello, I’m happy to see you,” but we also get asked if we want coffee or water. Uh, yes. And then when they ring you up, they are still helping you out, with registering your product and ensuring that you know what that means. And then we get a genuine “Thank you!”

My issue with Kohl’s, I hate HATE being called, honey or hon, sweetie isn’t much better. And I have asked a store manager not to call me that when we were discussing a matter of importance. There had been a mixup and I was attempting to return a much higher priced item that I was charged the lower price for. Yep, honesty is really the best policy except for apparently Kohl’s! So after explaining what I was doing, and asking him -politely, to stop calling me honey which by the way was really aggravating hubs! The manager then switched to calling me Sweetie! UM HELLO! no that wasn’t any better! Patrick had had enough and we took the package and left the store. We actually drove to the nearest town with a Kohl’s and they too started with the hon, honey thing. But the difference was, someone else stepped up and treated us with respect. And we were able to keep the item even at the very discounted price! The moral of this story, it does pay, to be honest, and for the store-it pays to be respectful to your customers. That is the only Kohl’s I will step into.

And yes, I get a lot of crapola about my Starbuck’s addiction, but guess what? Again it’s the customer service! The Starbuck’s in this town is rude! And by that, I mean all the people that work there that I’ve interacted with are RUDE! I’ll drive to Gas City which is out of my way to get a cup of coffee! And yes, I know I pay more for that coffee, which is why the main reason I go there is for the Customer Service!!! The Gas City Starbuck’s is off the interstate so they don’t always have the most customers but the ones they do, we’re treated pretty well compared to the Marion location.  Both Starbuck’s locations in Muncie are pretty good, however my main base is the one on Tillotson, why? Customer Service!

Do ya’ll see a pattern here? LOL 😉

Where I am treated with respect and acknowledged as being an important part of the chain, Seller, Consumer. Is where I shop! I have options now, and a few places recognize that important difference.
I’m not saying the customer is always right, trust me, as someone that has worked in retail as an associate, customer service rep, and department manager I know that’s not always true! Yep! And as such I avoid using that phrase!!! OI! However, on the other hand, those businesses that treat me and hubs with respect, we return to. And omg! We send other’s to their business!! YEP!! Take Note! Customer service gets you more customers/clientele which is your bottom line! So put a bit more effort into your customer service, and this applies to those that work there too if the company/store goes belly up, what could you have done differently to ensure it didn’t? As I said earlier, the door greeter gig was the least

As I said earlier, the door greeter gig was the least favorite of the job at Wal-Mart, but if you made it fun and interacted with people instead of standing there sounding like a robot, “Hello. Hello. Hello. Hello.” The time you had the gig flew by and customers noticed when it wasn’t you. Yep! I’ve been a goofball for forever and it would seem that is alright. I was asked to do that gig more often and after a bit instead of dreading it, I started to enjoy the time I was doing it.

The reason for this particular rambling… I was sent a few email’s that sent me to the company’s survey on how they did customer service wise, smart company!! I gave positive feedback. For nothing other than that they know that yes, I was satisfied with the service and the customer service I received. Now if they send me a coupon, I’m not going to complain. lol   Also a lot of businesses have websites now and I do leave feedback, both positive and negative. I also leave my contact information to have someone get in touch with me. This happens more often than you think, and more so with the smaller businesses. 😉 See someone understands the relationship seller/buyer. 😉
