Stupid Attorneys & Stupid Witness'! (Mainly Attorneys)

I received this Via e-mail from a fellow J-lander!

Read this when you need a couple of good laughs.

These are from a book called Disorder in the American Courts, and are
things  people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and now
published  by court reporters who had the torment of staying calm while these
exchanges  were actually taking place.


ATTORNEY: Are you sexually active?
WITNESS: No, I just lie there.
ATTORNEY: What is your date of birth?
WITNESS: July 18th.
ATTORNEY: What year?
WITNESS: Every year. 
ATTORNEY: What gear were you in at the moment of the impact?
WITNESS: Gucci sweats and Reeboks.
ATTORNEY: This myasthenia gravis, does it affect your memory at all?
ATTORNEY: And in what ways does it affect! your memory?
WITNESS: I forget.
ATTORNEY: You forget? Can you give us an example of something you 

ATTORNEY: Now doctor, isn't it true that when a person dies in his
                          sleep, he doesn't know about it until the next morning?
WITNESS: Did you actually pass the bar exam? 
ATTORNEY: The youngest son, the twenty-year-old, how old is he?
WITNESS: Uh, he's twenty-one.
ATTORNEY: Were you present when your picture was taken?
WITNESS: Would you repeat the question?
ATTORNEY: So the date of conception (of the baby) was August 8th?
ATTORNEY: And what were you doing at that time? 
ATTORNEY: She had three children, right?
ATTORNEY: How many were boys?
ATTORNEY: Were there any girls?
____ _________________________________
ATTORNEY: How was your first marriage terminated?
WITNESS: By death. 
ATTORNEY: And by whose death was it terminated?
ATTORNEY: Is your appearance here this morning pursuant to a
                         deposition notice that I sent to your attorney?
WITNESS: No, this is how I dress when I go to work.
ATTORNEY: Doctor, how many of your autopsies have
                          you performed on dead people?
WITNESS: All my autopsies are performed on dead people.
ATTORNEY: ALL your responses MUST be oral, OK?
                         What school you go to?
ATTORNEY: Do you recall the time that you examined the body?
WITNESS: The autopsy started around 8:30 p.m.
ATTORNEY: And Mr. Denton was dead at the time?
WITNESS: No, he was sitting on the table wondering why I was doing an
                      autopsy on him!
ATTORNEY: Are you qualified to give a urine sample?
ATTORNEY: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for 
                          a pulse?
ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure?
ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?
ATTORNEY: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you
                          began the autopsy?
ATTORNEY: How can you be so sure, Doctor?
WITNESS: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.
ATTORNEY: But could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless? 
WITNESS: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and 
                       practicing law.

Some things I forgot to tell ya!

Well after Dee came and picked me up, we went to go for dinner!

Well we went for dinner right acrossed the street from where we all lived ...

who is "WE" you ask?

"WE" is ... Julie, Alicia, Dee, My sister, Miah (An old, old friend of mine, I've known him since I was like 5), and I

It was the same place that Alicia died!

Alicia died in her apartment, which like I said was right acrossed the street from where we ate!

We went to Anza's pizza! We ALL used to eat there! There are so many memories there on that block, it was really hard to be there tonight!

Well Dee decided before we went to eat (we were not sure on where to go yet) we wanted to see if Miah was home!

Miah lives on the third floor of where Alicia lived!

Alicia lived on the second floor!

We had to pass her door to get to Miah's door!

I started shaking and Dee got the goosebumps!

We had to go up through the back (it's the only way into both aprtments) and you use the same steps (obviously)!

You walk up to the second floor and if you walk another 4 feet straight you would be at Alicia's door!

If you turn and continue to go up steps, you go on the roof and there's a door to Miah's apartment!

Sorry I didn't mean to get you lost, I just wanted you to understand why it was so hard to do all this tonight!

Well Miah was not home, like always!

So we decided just to eat at anza's pizza!

It was hard, because like I said we all ate there many times and it was right acroosed the street from where she died!

If I turned around in my seat and looked out the window, I could see the window to Alicia's apartment!

Well I just wanted to vent out a few things!

Now I'm off to bed, I have to work tomorrow morning!

The shirt and Dee!

Well I said I would post pictures of the shirt and of my friend Dee ...

Well Viola, here they are!

I know they are not the greatest, my webcam sucks!

Everything comes out dark and blurry!

Now a few things about the shirt,

*I got it done at the fair

*done by an awwesome lady that knows my aunt!

*She did a great job

*I got rainbow colors behind the writing because Alicia loved the rainbow (she was a lesbian)

*I got the angel on the back because Alicia also loved angels

*I was not 100% sure (I was 99.9% sure) on her dates so I didn't get it done that day, but I'm going to get them done, I have the ladies card! I'm getting the dates put underneath the angel!

My Life the past 4 days!

Well I have not stopped thinking about Alicia! I can't!

It's impossible! She's in my head 24/7!

I just want her back!

I don't want to have to come to reality that she's gone!

I want to go back to sharing all my things with her!

I want to go back to cooking dinner for her and Julie!

I want to laugh and have a good time with her again!

I don't want to say goodbye!

Even though I know I have to, I can't!

It's too hard!

As the tears fall down my face as I write this, I wonder when I'll be able to be in her presence again!

It keeps getting harder and harder everyday!

Like today I finally got to talk to her ex (we have been playing computer tag! Everytime she's on she's idle and I can't get to talk to her, or she ims me when I'm away from the computer!), so when we talked to day Alicia came up in the conversation again!

She was telling me how Alicia's sister has been getting into so much trouble! She stole a car and everything! I told her I know it's because of Alicia being gone! I know it's hard for her, it's hard for me!

Alicia and her sister were close (like my brother and I)! Her sister would never do things like that if Alicia was still here!

But if it's this hard for me, I can only imagine how hard it is for her!

She knew Alicia since she was born, because she was younger than Alicia, so she had Alicia since her day 1! So with her being her sister and them being so close, I know it's really toguh for her and she's only 15 or 16!

Julie is going to try to get her for a couple of weeks in the summer (Julie lives in South Carolina)!

(wait it might me Georgia, I can't remember because she was moving and I can't remember if she was staying in the samestate or moving to the edge of the other, she's been back and forth with it)

......back to my point .....

Where did it go?








Ah ha! There it is!

I hope that someone can help Alicia's sister through this tough time and guide her through life in the right direction!

She deserves it!

Well I'm going to get off here, becuase I need to do some cleaning and take a shower!

Dee is coming to york today to see me ... YEAH! (she got her car the other day)

I haven't seen her since Alicia's Viewing (2 months ago)!

I miss the girl!

So I know today won't be any easier for the Alicia situation, because Dee and I will talk about her and I'm going to wear the shirt I got made at the fair in memory of Alicia ...

When Dee stops by and before we leave to do anything, I'll take pictures with my webcam and post them!

That way you can see pics of one of my friends and see the shirt I had made!

Alright I really have to go now! I have to get done before Dee gets off of work and gets here!

(Please pray for Alicia's sister, Ashlyn, I was just instant messenging Julie and she said she's only 12 or 13 ... she has a long life ahead of her)

Rough weekend! ~~~~~~~~ Missing Alicia like CRAZY!

Yea, the song I'm listening to right now was put on the cd I made for everybody when Alicia passed away .... It was called "In loving memory of Alicia Joy Strauss ... We love and miss you so much and you'll always have a place in our hearts!"

We put a copy in her coffin, but her mom probably got it because she was cremated!

But friday on the way to work, I passed where it ALL "happened" (her death), which was her apartment and I used to live right down the street!

Well I always think of her when I pass there on the way to work almost everyday!

But for some reason friday I got all choked up and was holding back so many tears, but I continued to think of her all day and how much I miss her!

Well then some drama got started about Alicia (of course via my sister, pardon my french in advance but there is NO other word for her, she is a BI**H)

I hate how she's been acting since Alicia has passed away!

I won't go into full detail because I'll get myself all worked up and it won't be a pretty sight!

Well I'll sum it up and say .... Alicia and my sister (Becky) HATED each other when Alicia was alive!

They were ALWAYS at each other's throats!

Alicia even pulled Becky out of bed once (while she was naked ... she sleeps naked .... ew) and drug her acrossed the bedroom floor which was carpeted. Becky has a rug burn scar on her back from it!

Okay that's just ONE of their "fights!"

They really do go on!

But now my sister is acting like they were BEST friends ... they were not!

Alicia and I got along very well ... she even offered me a place to stay when my sister kicked me out of OUR apartment! (I didn't argue because I'm not the type to fight, I try to keep my mouth shut and go with the flow)

But then my dad found out I didn't need them (I never even told them becuase I didn't want them to think I needed their help)!

Well Alicia offered me to stay there then I called my dad to let him know I was moving and what happened! (I told him that way he wouldn't go there looking for me, because him and my sister DO NOT TALK AT ALL)

Well then my dad HATED the fact that I didn't need him and my mom, so he begged me to come home until I was ready to be on my own!

I figured maybe it was better to be with family ... but i should've stayed with Alicia ... maybe I could've helped her a little more with getting her life together!

Which I think about EVERYDAY since she has passed!

I cried 3 days in a row now because I miss her SO much!

I'm crying right now as I write this!

I miss her ... I feel lonely with her gone ....

I never thought this is what a death felt like and that Alicia REALLY meant this much to me!

I don't mean that in a bad way but I mean it in a good way!

I did only know her for a little over a year and in that time I felt like I knew for a lifetime!

So with the little time I did know her ... I know I loved her and would miss her dearly ... but I guess I never really thought about how much I would miss someone because I've NEVER dealt with a death before her!

Now I treasure the friends I do have (not that I didn't before) but now I show them even MORE how much I appreciate their friendship and everything else they do for me!

I want Alicia back here by my side .... I need her!

(I know that sounds GREEDY, and lots of people say that when people they love pass on, but I TRULY know how they feel now)

Alicia had such a big heart, she always put her problems on the back burner and wanted to work on your problems! She never showed her problems either!

She was always giving if she could!

Well today at work we had a full store count and I just could not get myself to get the count completed! It seriously (no kidding) took me and extra 3 hours to do the count then it usually does!

Well Tammy and I were talking a lot too ... we touched base on training the 2 girls at my store and how they were doing! Which btw is not so good!

We talked about a few other things too! i told her I was sick and I was not feeling well and I had been miserable the past couple days! I told her that I was still coming to work because I HATE calling off of work (and she knows that) and I knew that I really couldn't call off anyway ... there was NO ONE to cover my shift!

Well she did go over my review with me and I did really well! I didn't write any comments because I agreed 100% with everything she said!

At the end she asked me if there was anything she could help me do to improve on anything and I said no but there are a few things bothering me that I would like to talk to you about!

So I told her how I felt about Stephany getting paid almost as much as me and come to find out she is NOT making as much as I ahd thought!

And Melissa lied about the whole "Tammy said that Stephany and I got the best raises!"

Because I got a better raise than Stpehany did!

Tammy also told me that if I keep all the good work like I have (because when she did my review it was at the beginning of july and since then I've improved like 6 areas) she will try in 4-5 months to get me another raise!

OH HOT DIGGITY DOG! (that's my new favorite saying, I don't know why, I just stumbled acrossed it and I say it all the time now)

Another raise for me, which will make me making (well depending on my raise) any where from $9.50-$10.00 an hour!

Just to be an assitant manager at a jewelry kiosk!

(and that's not including any comission I make)

Oh I love my job much more than I think sometimes!

I know every job has high's and low's like everything in life does!


Also tonight my mom told me one of my cousins is in jail again!

I really thought he was getting his life together but I guess not!

He is 23 and had sex (on 3 occassions) with a 15 year old!

(what the heck was he thinking? I know he knows better, because he told me before he wouldn't sleep with quite a few different people because of their age)

My friend had her baby yesterday at 2:11am and I wanted to go see her SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO bad tonight after work, but of course I couldn't!

So I'm really upset with myself!


Anyways, I need to get some REAL sleep (my cold keeps getting WORSE every morning)

Today I thought I was going to throw up a few times!

I got REALLY BAD chest pains after work and now they're gone .. thank you god!

SO I think maybe if I get more sleep that will help a lot more than I think!

(Plus I have to get up early because Lisa, Dontae {her 5  year old son}, and I are going out to breakfast before I have to be at work at 12:30 ... so We'll eat and go do something fun ... maybe stop by our store at the other mall and see what's going on there ... who knows!)


Have a good night!

Thinking about my job!

So of course my brother was upset that no one would take him to the fair this year .... so as the nice big sister that I like to think I am, I took him to the fair, as I really shouldn't have because I'm trying to save for my apartment, and my parents could have taken him because they could afford it, I truthfully can't! But I hate to see my brother not being able to go, so I spent the money I was hoping to save this check and took him to the fair and paid for him to get a few things to eat and drink, bought him a hat and a wristband!


So anyways, the point of my entry is .....

I have been thinking about the whole quitting my job!

I even wrote a letter to Tammy this morning while I was at work, and it is still in my purse, but I have decided that everything that I'm upset about ..... I will like I always do ..... let it slide by and not do anything about it!

I won't go into detail like I did it the letter but I will address the pay issue with her! That I'm not letting slip by me! Because that has me so pissed off! And I found out today that Lisa might be getting a raise in like 2 months if she can keep her sales up ... i know she needs it because she's a single mom and she didn't get a raise like the rest of us, but how does the company think that's fair? If I make my numbers will I get a raise? NOPE! But Lisa is my best friend and she needs the raise more than I do, so I'm not too bent out of shape with that one!

Tammy did call me today at work, but I couldn't talk to her about it becuase I was at work and one of the new girls was there. So I had to train the new girl and ring up one of my customers that was waiting for 4 duplicate items to come in (she needed 5 identical charm bracelets ... indeed it was a good sale)!

But Tammy is to come in tomorrow so, maybe we'll get to talk tomorrow!

Who Knows!

But why have I decided to let this slide?

Because when it comes down to it, I love what I do ... and that is selling jewelry! I love working in the mall, I love working with people one on one, trying to figure out what exactly they need!

I may not agree upon a few things, but nothing is what you always want it to be, so sometimes you just have to bite your lip REAL HARD, and not say a damn thing!

I hate disagreements (I grew up with them all around me, so now as an adult I try to avoid them as much as possible)!

And it's not easy to just find a new job and start all over again on training and being comfortable with what you do and who you work with, and learning what you are doing to try to do the best you can possibly do!

So I decided to try and stick it out, most likely my manager nor regional manager willbe there much longer .... both of them hate their job as well!

But until then I did request like four days in a row next month to get myself back together! I have almost 70 hours vacation and 24 personal so I can spare it, it's not like I EVER go on vacation!


So one fine day I will go back to college though and get a job as a secartary ( I think I spelled that wrong)!

I have always wanted to be one!

I love doing paperwork and organizing! so it's right down my lane!

So I had to keep you updated!

Which btw, I still have my nasty cold, and it seems to be getting worse! UGH!

I wish it would just go away!

Have a great monday everyone!

Job Hunt

Well I have to start looking for a job!

My manager (Tammy) and I got into a pretty deep argument today!

I think the only one we've ever had!

I know she's frustrated and all because of being short staffed .... but that's her job and it's about time she actually does somethign other than gossip!

I can't stand the gossip anymore! It's driving me crazy!

It's almost so bad that I'm like, "damn! Why was I not born a boy? They would not have to worry about the drama and the gossip, cuz guys just don't care, so they don't want to hear it!"

Why do girls have to gossip and be so dramatic?

So anyways back to my point .... where is it .... looking ..... looking ... looking .... looking .... looking .... oh there it is!

Tammy has been making me upset alot lately!

I hate to cause drama and any problems PERIOD ... so I always keep my mouth shut and NEVER say what I feel!

Well WHENEVER, I'm lucky enough to get my end-of-the-year-review (the thingy that determines if we get a raise or not), I'm going to tell (well try) Tammy how I feel about NUMEROUS things!

Like the biggest thing is that a key holder is getting paid almost as much as I am and I'm an assistant! How can that be possible?

I'm demanding another raise because of it, or I'm calling human resources, then if that doesn't work I'm quitting!

But I can't quit until I find another job! i can't afford to just quit!

I want to take this opportunity and just move out of state .... but I have no idea where or how I could do so!

So I'm just going to start filling out applications! And if somehting I like opens up .... I'M GONE!

I can't take the stress from trying to be the "perfect" assistant manager that I don't want to be!

I'll NEVER be perfect! but I feel like that's what Tammy wants!

But whatever!


I have the worst cold I've ever had!

I feel like crap and I didn't even call off of work or leave early!

I don't want to break my record or perfect attendence!


So on that note .....

Good night!

The store name change and the fair!

My mood is really something that is not listed ... exhausted and grumpy!


I just wanted to let everyone know that I did take pictures of the the store before and after ... even some pictures of the mess that was there (well SOME, a small portion, of it anyways)

I have the pictures I have to get them developed!

I even took pictures of Lisa's kids on rides and they got their faces' painted!

The kids had so much fun!

I spent quite a bit of money ... not as much as I thought i would though!

I'm really grouchy right now ... I'm really sweaty, and I have a HUGE tension headache!

I have to be at work at 9:30 too ... not as bad as this morning, but I wish I got to sleep in!

I'm going to be grouchy again tomorrow morning, but I'm going to try to fight it off!

I can't wait to get the pictures of both events and share them with everyone!

Wednesday, September 14, 2005

Store name change and the fair!

So tomorrow I have to be at the store at 7:00am!

I forgot to take my camera to work today to take pictures .... so I'm taking it with me tomorrow and I'll take pictures before they get there!

The once they're all done changing the name ... I'll take more ....

Now because I'm not fortunate enough to have a digital camera, I won't be able to post until I get them developed!

I hope it will not take too long because I'm so excited for everyone to see!

(the idea, {I didn't think such a good idea up myself} was given to me by dazeychic over at ... which btw is a GREAT journal!)

Then my regional also said she was taking before and after pictures herself!

My store is where my regional manager started out at! Yep, before she was the big boss!

So she's a little sentimental about my store!

Well anyways, I'm excited about the name change, but not the fact that I have to be there at 7 in the morning to just sit there for 2 1/2 hours and do NOTHING, but watch these people change a few signs!

How boring, I'm going to be sitting there twidling my fingers and yawning, becuase as soon as I'm done writing this, I'm in bed, I have to be up at 5:00am!

Yeah and I know I'll lay up there for 3 hours before I fall asleep, but I'm going to try!

Because after I get off of work, I'm going to the fair!


Back up, Here comes Theresa! Roll out the red carpet! (j/k I had to get everyone that is reading this to laugh)

I'm so excited for tomorrow that I know that's also going to hold me back from sleeping!

A good thing happened ....... checks came in a let's say .... the fair will be NO sweat to spend LOADS of money at!

::::::sighs with a HUGE grin:::::::::::

Yep, I got a raise and they gave it o use for the past 2 weeks instead of one and I got overtime and holiday pay and I also got end-of-the-year bonus!

Yep, for making the store's year I got like $450 .... after taxes not so much but it's still a couple hundred that wasn't counted!

So I got a GOOD paycheck AND a bonus!

More money for the hurrican katrina victims too!

Which btw, all the managers in our region have a conference call every other monday night with our regional .... and on the conference call they had some #'s for us as far as stores and employees affected by katrina .... 31 stores total and one employee which has not been found ... I almost started crying when I found out that one of my co-workers (that I don't even know, or even met) is missing! I hope they find the employee .... please pray for their return! Zales corporation (the company that owns my store) seems to be REALLY concerned about the employees affected by this, and not the stores, which we haven't heard a thing about the stores, just the employees! I hope all turns out well! Please keep them in your prayers!

I think I really should be going to bed now, but I thought I would update (or should I say remind) everyone of all the happenings!

Good Night! Have a great day tomorrow (I won't be home until LATE, so I won't get to write probably tomorrow because I have to open on friday)

A joke I thought the ladies might like!

A man walked into the ladies department of a Macy's and said, "I'd like
to buy a bra for my wife.

What type of bra?" asked the clerk.

Type?" inquires the man, "There's more than one type?

Look around," said the sales lady, as she showed a sea of bras in every
shape, size, color and material imaginable Actually, even with all of
this variety, there are really only four types of bras to choose from.

Relieved, the man asked about the types!

The saleslady replied: There are the Catholic, the Salvation Army, the
Presbyterian, and the Baptist types. Which one would you prefer?

Now totally befuddled, the man asked about the differences between

The Sales lady responded, "It is all really quite simple...

The Catholic type supports the masses.

The Salvation Army type lifts the fallen,

The Presbyterian type keeps them staunch and upright,

The Baptist makes mountains out of mole hills.

Have you ever wondered why A, B, C, D, DD, E, F, G, and H are the
letters used to define bra sizes? If you have wondered why, but couldn't figure
out what the letters stood for, it is about time you became informed!

{A} Almost Boobs...

{B} Barely there.

{C} Can't Complain!

{D} Dang!

{DD} Double dang!

{E} Enormous!

{F} Fake.

{G} Get a Reduction.

{H} Help me, I've fallen and I can't get up !

They forgot the German bra.

The STUPID LYING ... (I'll leave it edited) ... girl!

Okay, I said I would tell you about Michelle and why I called her STUPID ... not that you probably care ... but I need to vent it and defend myself on why I would call someone such a name!

I'll try to keep it short and sweet, but to the point!

A regional manger for another region called yesterday looking for Tammy (my manager) and I said she was at the other store!

Let me just say, I was really confused because regional managers NEVER call other stores looking for managers NOT in their region ... especially not even near our region!

So I gave her the number for the other store!

I saw Tammy and Lisa at lunch when I went to mail the audit envelope and I went to tell them that there was another old bad news employee in the mall ...

and they proceeded to tell me what happened with Michelle!

They told me that the regional called looking for Tammy and I said, "yea, I knew that! She called my store looking for you and I told her you were at PP (piercing pagoda), and I gave her the number."

Well they said that the lady said she was calling for a reference check on a Michelle ___________!

Tammy said, "I can't really say anything other than I would definelty NOT rehire her!"

And the lady says, "Oh but you can say why becuase I'm a regional manager for Piercing Pagoda in the northern pa area!"

Well I won't go into details but Tammy pretty much summed it up in a short little descriptiona nd told her what all Michelle did!

For those of you that have not figured it out yet ......

Yea, the STUPID girl went and applied for a job at another piercing pagoda!

Yea, she wrote that she worked for us and just recently "quit" becuase of a serious illness and was unable to fulfill her job duties and that her and Tammy were on a agreement of her leaving!


Yea, Tammy was happy she was gone, but who wasn't? She did not leave because of a serious illness!

She got FIRED because she didn't show up for work!

And it was her FINAL write up!

Where does this girl get her brains? Does she not have ANY common sense?

Did she really think that they wouldn't call us and find out what happened?

When she told the regional about the sickness and not being able to work, the regional said, "This was just a couple weeks ago this happened and she was only there for a short period of time! What happened in a few weeks that she is suddenly able to work now?"

Well Tammy, Lisa, and I all tried to figure that out ....

Let's just say this is the answer we came up with ....


The girl is back on her lying spree and she figured she would go to another area and try to get a job at the same company and keep on stealing the jewelry she wants!

She just has not figured out that we figured her out yet!

She thinks we are stupid!

NOPE! Sorry Michelle you got us "twisted" ...


You are not fooling nobody but yourself!


I know I should not call people stupid ... but she just topped it off!

Sorry, but that's just how I feel!

And if you met this girl, you would feel the same way!

It has been forever ~ or so it feels like it!

I know it has been forever since I have wrote a REAL entry ...

but there's not much going on in my life right now ....

I do have an update on Michelle ... but all I'm going to say right now is ... SHE IS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO STUPID!

I hate saying that about people, but she has topped it off! I can't hold it in about her!

She must have done some SERIOUS drugs recently!

She told me when she worked there she did drugs!

Her exact words were, .... (wait now that I'm trying to write it I can't remember how it EXACTLY went!)

But this is how it pretty much went ... "I either have to be drunk or high, I can't be sober, I have to have something in my system!"

........... HOW SICK IS THAT!

But anyways, I'll write later today what recently (like yesterday) happened with her DUMB AS*!

But other that that I have nothing to write!

Other than ......




Oh, I can't wait until Thursday when I go after work! It started friday or saturday!

Our fair is only 10 days long and with a schedule like mine it seems to fly by before I even get a chance to go with Lisa and the kids! 

~~~~ which I have to go with because her kids won't have it ANY OTHER WAY! Dejya was almost in tears when I told her I wasn't sure if we could go together this year, because of hem mom and I working at the same place and being short staffed and probably not being able to request off .... especially being that Dontae's (Lisa's son) birthday is 9/11, so Lisa and I requested off for his birthday party! (in which our regional manager was there for as well, and I hated her being there in my presence, because she can't even tell us our freaking raises ... which we arerecieving as of 9/2 and WE DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT WE ARE GETTING PAID RIGHT NOW ... she said she would call and tell Tammy on monday, but of course she didn't! So she might as well forget about it now because we get our checks tomorrow!


And to think that I had to bite my tongue at the party and NOT say ANYTING to her about it .... beleive me .... it was KILLING me!

So off of that subject,


I will defenitley post about my fair trip when I get home that night or the next day! (my schedule is CRAZY this week)!

I plan to eat ALL kinds of foods!

Then I'll have to work it all off for the next MONTH!

But as I keep writing here, I realize I have more to write then I thought ......

Our store name gets changed this thursday!


Tammy was supposed to be there at 7:00am ... (so it's done before the mall opens at 10:00am) .... but she forgot she has to close that night, so she doesn't want to be there from 7am-10pm

So I asked her if she wanted me to come in at 7 and I leave at 3 instead of working 9:30-5:30 ... (that way I can leave earlier and go to the fair! ... golly I am toooooooooooooooo smart) ... and she loved the idea!

I told her to make sure she is there by 3 and at MY store (not the other one) so I can leave so I don't get overtime!

I told her I'll be there around 6:40-6:45 and that way I can set the cases up and just wait for them to do their work!

So I am SUPER PSYCHED! ... (I think I spelled that wrong)

Just wait until we are shining like a brand new car!

We are going to SHINE BRIGHTLY!

I'll make sure of it!

I'll write as entry once it's all done and let you know how it all went!

Donating Spree!

Well I was debating on where to doante my money at or how to do so!

I took $20.00 out of my lunch money to donate, and I had it hidden in my wallet so I wouldn't spend it!

Well I was at wal-mart last night picking up some layaways and I saw they had a sign saying they were taking doantions there!

So I went up to the front to the customer service center and they had a container for the donations (a big water thing, I think it's a 5 gallon thingy) and I dropped my money in!

The associate nearby said, "thank you!"

I said, "your welcome!"

But when I first got to wal-mart, Lisa and I spotted M&Ms for breast cancer ....

They were all pink and money went towards breast cancer, so I bought 2 bags one for me and one for Lisa!

Well as we shopped around I found the pink ribbon magnets that said "Find A Cure"

So I bought 2 of those, one for me and one for Lisa!

So I was on the donating and giving spree!

As Lisa is ALWAYS doing for me, I love to give her presents .... so I felt as if it was time to thank her again!

Well as we shopped around I found plaques that had to do with friendship and angels (she loves angels) .... so I spent like $30.00 on gifts on her!

I surprised her with them too ... she had NO idea I was hiding stuff in the cart and that some of the stuff in the open was for her!

She even found something and was digging in her change to see if she could get one of things I had hidden!

Well I was tugging at her and telling her "No we have to go get your kids, and if we turn around I'll end up spending more than I want to so let's just go please! It'll be here when we get paid again and I'll let you get it then I promise!"

I hate lying but I was saying anything to get her butt moving AWAY from the stuff!

So we left, went to eat, then picked her kids up and I had surprises for the kids on layaway so I figured I would sit them in their seats and put hers together and sit it in her seat!

Well when she went to get in the car after getting her son strapped in, she just nudged hers (thinking it was her purse {it was a cool furry gift bag that looks like a purse} until she saw the card drop, and felt the fur on the bag!

So I said "Watch where your sitting"

As I turned on the light

"Oh my god Theresa! What did you do?" Gasps Lisa

I said, "Well you always do so much for me and you know how I love to give gifts, well I was in that mood tonight and I thought it was long overdue that I thank you again!"

"I always tell you saying thank you is enough"

"well thank you and here have some gifts"

She was stunned to see the angel magnet in there that I was pulling her from!

I said "Now do you see why I was pulling you away and arguing with you?"

She laughed and kept saying "thank you, but you didn't have to"

I took her and the kids for ice cream and we talked!

(and while we were at McDonald's they had they little bins for "hurricane Katrina" so I put all my nickels and pennies in there ... which was alot ... maybe $2 worth)

Then we went to the other wal-mart (on the other side of town)

And I paid to put some things on layaway fro her kids because she didn't have the money too!

Then today I was reading a journal and I found this lady is taking doantions and buying stuff the surviors of hurricane katrina need ... so I donated another $20!

She will be going multiple times and taking donations for a while longer so I most likely will doante again next pay day!

so here is the link to her journal entries to see what she is doing:

See the amazing work this wonderful young lady is doing?

How nice of her!

She will be paying for the gas and any of her own expenses out of her pocket, that does NOT come out of the donations!

She will be making multiple trips!

I admire her, I want to help hands-on style, but it's impossible for me to do so!

So I decided to help her do so!

Please find it in your heart to help her do this ...

She is giving them necessities like water, food, tolietries, toys for kids, and do on!

Thanks and have a wonderful day everybody!

Watching Hurricane Katrina

Well today was the first time I actually got to see Hurricane Katrina on t.v.

It was so sad!

Seeing all those people crowded in one spot, people dying, losing freinds and family members, losing their homes, jobs, cars, anything and everything!


So here are a few questions that are brewing in my head:


Where do they begin their lives over again?

How long will it take for them to be settled somewhere comfortably?

Can they even afford it?

Will people steal donations like they did for 9/11 victims?

Will hackers steal my donation? (which is my reason on not donating online yet ... I'm waiting to see something in person)

Will they rebuild this town (new orleans) for it to happen again in another 2-4 years? (which is what they are saying ... it's to happen again in a few years)

Will all the donations actually reach these people?

How can people be dishonest at a time like this?

How could men try to rape 13 year olds while confined to the convention center in new orleans?

Why would people shoot at the helicopters?

What is the exact amount of everyone involved?

What's the total damage?

Can we even doante enough to make up for what was lost? (not memories)

How many lives were lost?

How long is this going to take to clear up?

How long to it's at least bearable?

What are these people going to do about their jobs?

What about all the business'?


I'm so sad about this all ... and I wish it was all taken care of, so we can all be happy again, and not worry about not being able to help out enough!

I want to do so much more than I can!

I feel guilty for not being able to donate more than $20 and a few pieces of clothing!

I wish I was rich/famous just to donate most of my money righ tnow to this people!

I always tell Lisa, "If I win the lottery or become rich/famous one day, there are so many ways that I want to spend my money on others (not me)!"

I don't wish it for me or for the fame, just so I could be very helpful in situations like those we are dealing with now!

I just want to make a difference in more than one person's life!

On that note, I'm going to go to bed to dream of being able to do more than I can!

(I don't ask for things for me that often, on the other hand, I'm ALWAYS asking for others! I rather others be happy than me)

Hurricane Katrina

But here is something that I really need to be talking about:

Hurricane Katrina!

here are a few sites to take a look at:

My heart really goes out to everyone affected by this horrible hurricane!

God bless everyone and stay safe!

And donate, even if it's only $10.00 ~ it all adds up!

This whole situation has really made me think about how greatful I should be of what little I do have, because even though it seems little to me, it's ALOT to others!

At least I have a shelter, food, clothing, and so on!

Thank you god for blessing me with the things I do have!

Lies, one after another!

So Tammy called me today to touch base with me since I was off the past 2 days and she had off today!

And well she told me that Michelle lied about the whole rehab thing!

She wasn't even in a rehab!

She told Tammy she was at the doctor's for something ... which no one now believes!

Because of 2 reasons:

First of all because she's lied about all kinds of things since she started there!

And second, becuase she supposedly wanted to keep her job here so bad becuase she really did like it, so she was told that if she was at any kind of doctor's that all she had to do was bring in signed papers stating she was there!

And she didn't ... she just came in yesterday to turn in her keys and pick up her check!

Well after all that, I'm pissed because I was worried and I was praying everything was ok and it turned out she LIED!

I HATE dishonest people!

There's no need to lie!

So here is two things to keep in mind:

Communication is the key to a relationship, but honesty is the best policy!

Sorry everyone, but I had to release my anger!
