To celebrate Gay Pride Month ~ I wanted to extend a friendly hand with a song dedication to those young guys and girls out there struggling to come out of the close because you’re not getting the love and support from friends and family.
And to those who are constantly bullied because you are different based on your race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. ~ please hang in there because it WILL get better.
I hope this song will help elevate your confidence a little and encourage you to be strong and inspired to be someone in this world that will make a difference.
TO ALL OF YOU - YOUR LIFE IS WORTH IT. YOU ARE IN OUR THOUGHTS!
This guy comes in every time I’m working my shift and he would buy lottery scratchers; he would never actually play them properly but would only scratch the three digit code and then he’ll check to see if he won anything. Then he will continually do this until the money he wins decreases in value. Then when he completely loses he’ll say, “I should’ve stopped when I won the $20”. In my mind, I want to say, “You should’ve stopped. Period!”
About a month ago I met this guy online. We started chatting and we decided to meet each other over coffee. We seem to hit it off right away, and one thing led to another and we ended up at his place and had sex. But before that we made sure that we weren’t looking for anything serious.
I specifically told him that I was not looking to date at the moment and I just want something casual. He seemed to agree to this and assured me that he was on the same page.
Since then I’ve been busy with family affairs, working more hours, going on job interviews and because of the strange weather we’ve been having I was sick for about a week. During that time he would send me text messages saying that he misses me and that he’s thinking of me. While I find that very flattering it feels like I am being pressured and obligated to respond to him that I feel the same way he’s feeling even though I’m not. I did response back telling him that I just been busy so I haven’t had any time to get together again which seems to be something he kept asking me over and over.
This morning when I woke up I got six text messages from him. Most of his text were accusations that I “used him”, making excuses not to see him and if I were “man enough” to just tell him that I don’t want to see him ever again. This is the last thing I need on a Sunday morning so finally I text back.
“Listen, when we first met you said that you weren’t looking for anything serious either and you seem to be on the same page as me. Now you’re texting me like crazy, making me feel like I have to check in with you every time. So if you’re not looking for anything serious, why are you being so needy and obsessed? You’re 35 years old, you’re no longer 17 and naïve so stop acting this way!”
Good morning Starbucks!
Decided to get up this morning, feed my dog and then go to Starbucks for a quick pick me up. I wasn’t expecting for it to be on a Sunday. So here I am waiting in line at the drive through when I spotted this handsome barista.
Customer guy comes in to buy Marlboro reds, total came out to $5.66 including sales tax. He gives me $22.66 so I can put the $17 remaining change for gas on his car. Except, he gave me only $22.21 ($20 bill, $2 in quarters, two dimes and a penny) so he’s $0.45 short. I notified him that he is short but he insisted that he gave me the right amount without coming back to look at the amount he gave me even though I counted it out twice on the counter to make sure.
So, with $22.21, I tendered the amount so the change for the remaining gas is $16.55. After he dispensed his gas, he came back wondering why I didn’t put $17. I explained to him again that he was short $0.45. He wasn’t having it. He stormed out, got in his car and parked and went back in to ask for my name. I gladly gave it to him and he left with a sarcastic and attempt to intimidate tone that he will make a complaint. To which I said, “ok, thank you”. He turned around and said, “you can’t talk to a customer like that”
Like what? The truth? I am not going to get in trouble just because you failed your simple math calculation with your money. Just to prove he gave me the right amount, at the end of my shift, my balance was zero. Which means, I was neither over or short $0.45
So, he can make complaints all he wants. He’s going to lose this petty argument over 45 cents!
Today is my last day at the long-term-care pharmacy internship. What I learned from this experience is that this is something that I will never EVER want to do in my pharmacy career. Instead, I’d rather much do retail pharmacy. I realize that I work well under pressure, especially when it comes to dealing with people interaction. I am at my best when I utilize my customer service and quick-thinking skills to the test.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it’s time to bring her back to life and on to the big screen
This is what I do every morning from 6am to 12:30pm, Monday through Friday. Very boring and tedious. I miss retail pharmacy.
Forget the fact that your anti-marriage equality. I won’t eat at your place because your chicken is dry!
