Random stuff for today...

To start off this post i just wanted to say Happy Veterans Day. I support all the troops and wish them the best. do any of you know anyone in the armed forces now. i personally dont. i have friends that did serve in the past. not anymore, well actually there is 1 friend that still does. he might have finished around this time or not yet. im not sure, i need to contact him and see how he is doing.

Well on to some good stuff now. yes as i said in my last post me and 2 friends went to the movies. my best friend, as usual, picked me up a bit late but she to wait for our other friend to call her so she could pick him up. i cant blame her in that case. so because of the time we werent sure of what we wanted to see. any movie we chose at the time we would end up missing some of the beginning anyway. i hate that. we finally ended up seeing the Christmas Carol 3D movie. i loved it. i have always loved that story and this version was so much better than many others i have seen. and watching it in 3D was fun too. i would recommend it to anyone. there are some parts that might be a little scary for little kids, just so you know.

I get paid this friday. thats always a good thing. hopefully i will be a little closer to getting my own car soon. an apartment right now is out of the question, i dont have enough. i really was hoping to have one by december. i love having my own place to decorate but its ok. soon enough i have it. all things come in time and with patience.

After that i was suggesting to my friends that we get something to eat. our guy friend wanted to see another movie. we just went into another theater that was next to the one we just got out of. ok we snuck in. no one was around so we just went in. i wish i had just brought a snack at the point. i was so hungry. it also happened to be another movie that he wanted to see, The Men Who Stare At Goats. my opinion of this movie, well, if you have seen the preview or commercial then there is no need for you to waste money to see the whole thing. the commercial showed all the best parts. my best friend agreed with me. the movie was stupid and much of sit didnt really make sense. we understood what was going on but i'm just happy i didnt waste extra money to see it. i would not recommend it to anyone.

Ok now on to the stuff that has pissed me off recently. well for starters at the movies some people brought their kids along and some of the kids were crying or making noise and just being overall annoying. i dont have a problem with people bringing their kids to the movies but at the same time i do because of shit like that. it really annoys me when i pay money to see a damn movie and i have to deal with that crap. not to say that all kids are like that in movies, of course not, but i think some parents shouldnt bring them if they know how their kids will act. yeah you cant always predict what will happen when it comes to kids but either way i was still pissed off.

The person that was working in the box office that gave us the tickets was a bitch. she had an attitude and overcharged me and my friends. we even showed her our student ids but she didnt care. i know it was just a dollar difference but still, it was our money. can yo believe she actually even say to us "oh big deal its just a dollar". my best friend was pissed and asked for the manager. we all just wanted to see the movie so we went in but i have no doubt that my friend called the theater today to ask for a manager and complain. i know how my friend is so i am sure she got this situation taken care of.

Next is the situation will my boyfriends car. i went over to his place and we got tow truck to tow the car to the mechanic and get it fixed. i had called these guys before hand to get a price. they quoted me one price. of course once we got there the mechanic was trying to screw me by giving me a much higher price. i was like what!? i dont think so. i argued for a moment but he wouldnt honor the price i was given. i asked another employee to get the manager for me and it turned out that the manager was the one i spoke to. the manager honored the price he quoted me. i also said i didnt want that mechanic to work on my car so the manager got another employee to work on my car. well at least it turned out good, we got the car fixed and pay no more than what i expected to pay.

Something else that has pissed me off lately is people at work. not any of my co-workers this time but guests that come in. many have been annoying lately. others come in drunk late at night. some will not stop bothering me to get stuff for them that i keep telling them that i cant get for them. new people that comes in wanting discounts or deals of some kind. i cant do that people! get it through your heads. others being loud when i tell them to keep the noise down. i have even gotten stupid phone calls recently where the guys want me to give messages to guests they dont know. the point of this is too get me to repeat a message that is sexually based in a disgusting way. wtf people! grow the hell up. basically all around annoyances at work at some point will happen no matter what. all i can do is deal with them the best i can but it seems that i deal with something at work almost every night. i think i should start looking for a new job soon.

Well everyone these are my rants and raves for the day. sorry it was a bit long but once i started this post i was on a roll and just kept going, lol. i hope you enjoyed. i have to work tonight so i will now go lay down and rest for a bit before getting ready. have a good night everyone.

That goats movie looked horrible to me!

It is great to honor the troops!

It sucks when you have to fight so hard to afford a car or apartment. Just keep pluggin!

Oh Sweetie... You have every right to complain, what a week! I love children, ones that have been raised with manners! If that ever happens say something to the parents! well I would. As for the car repair, kudos for standing up for yourself! I hope you feel much better getting it all out! I agree that movie looked horrible, staring at goats?? Stupid, they're getting to the point; thinking that the american public would pay for junk just because George Clooney is in it!! I have to run to the gallery... Have a great day! Thanks for always stoppin in!

The goat movie looks weird anyway.
Did Jim Carrey do all the voices in A Christmas Carol? It just seemed that way in the commercial that's why I asked.
People can be buttheads. I remember when I worked front desk in a hotel on 3rd shift. Omg I wanted to shoot people. They're no better in retail, tattoo shops or doctor's offices by the way. I've had a few different jobs, can you tell?
Mechanics all try to pull that trick. What is up with that?

hi everyone. thanks for the comments.

otin: yeah the movie did look stupid. i cant believe that i saw a commercial for it and it said that the reviews said that movie was hilarious. what bs. they are doing that to make people think its good so they will buy tickets and go see it.

caroline: yeah someparents dont know how to raise kids and they will act like that. i really dont get those parents that will bring babies to a movie. i have experienced that quite a bit. first of all its a baby. babies dont need to be in the messy loud environment of a theater. they will start to cry and i dont blame the babies of course, i blame the parents. yes i definity had to stand up for myself with the mechanic. its not like i am rich and can afford to burn money. yes it is at a point where people will go to a movie just to see george clooney. i never see movies just b/c a certain actor is in them i see movies i want to see.

mejis: jim carrey did the voices of Ebenezer Scrooge/Ghost of Christmas Future/Ghost of Christmas Past/Ghost of Christmas Present. i knew he did scrooge but i couldnt tell with the other ones. either way its a good movie. i recommend it. lol yes there have been a few people i have wanted to shoot. i swear most people that come to my job are stupid, spoiled, annoying idiots. alot of mechanics are generally crooks so thats why that happens. i have had retail jobs, food jobs, security jobs, office jobs, labor jobs. lol, i've done a little of everything.

I don’t like missing any part of a movie either. I even like to get there early for the previews. I’m glad you liked it and how fun that it’s in 3-D! The Men Who Stare at Goats movie looks horrible. I’m sorry you had to see it!

It’s very true that all things come with time and patience. That’s how I felt when Geof and I were trying to buy a house (and now we want a bigger house…go figure). The car will come along soon :)

I get so angry at nonsense in the movie theater. It is so expensive these days and to have to deal with that is just plain annoying! I usually have to deal with teens and even adults that cannot behave themselves, especially at one theater in particular. Drives me nuts! Good for your friend calling and complaining too. Employees at certain places get away with far too much.

Good for you for forcing the issue of price about your boyfriend’s car. People will take advantage in anyway they can.

Hopefully the work stuff gets better and that you have a nice weekend!
