Since everyone is complaining about their cashier pet peeves, I will enlighten you about cashier pet peeves. 1. Hand us your money. Don't put it on our belt (it will eat it) or on the counter. I have to hand you your change, treat me with the same respect. 2. We're scored based on speed, fill out checks or count out your ridiculous amounts of change/ones BEFORE I hit total. 3. If I'm not cheerful enough, it may be because you were rude first. Granted, some are just complete sourpusses and shouldn't work retail. 4. If you have reusable bags, put them on the belt first. Don't wait until we have half of your order bagged to mention them. Also, don't be a witch if it takes a bit to rebag it because of your mistake. 5. Don't talk down to us, be rude, or a general PITA if you want things to go smoothly. I don't, but some cashiers will purposely double scan or mess up your bags in retaliation. This happened more when I worked at Walmart than my current gig. Not a pet peeve, but if you're nice we will be more likely to bend the rules (I.E. accepting an expired coupon, discounting an item, or bending rules regarding a return). Throwing a hissy fit, being obnoxious or asking for a manager will usually make them purposely go slower/make you work for what you want.

CL OP here. As much as I look forward to the emails, I really had step back and take a break from emailing the guy bc it was consuming way too much of my time. We've exchanged about 51 emails in the past 2.5 weeks. Usually he'll reply back to his last email if I haven't written back in a day or so. He hasn't done that, yet, fingers crossed that he needs a break from me, too.

When I first met my roommate I asked her if she worked nearby, she mentioned the name of a city with a very famous company that has several campuses locally and worldwide. I just assumed she worked at said company which rhymes with "Crapple." It seemed like she made a point to not mention the name when I ask about work, but says that its a small firm with mostly with men. I assumed she no longer worked at said large company, but tonight when I saw that she left her name tag out, my suspicions were correct. Not sure why, but this made me feel good.

You can always tell who the food stamp recipients are. They are the very fat people who use a scooter and look like missing a few meals would do them good. I had some fatass cut me off in the parking lot with my ds5 next to me and nearly hit us. I cursed at her and called her a bitchy fatass. Don't feel one bit bad either considering she was in such a hurry to get to the handicapped parking spot right in front of me and nearly missed hitting us. I ended up in back of her waiting in line and of course she pulled out a food stamp card. Go figure. And she was in a scooter. If your handicap is obesity then you should not be allowed to get disability because you allow yourself to get so fat it renders you unable to work.

My ex-MIL is so two-faced! A month ago she posted on FB that I'm like a daughter to her and she loves me so much. But yet she is telling exH that she doesn't even know me anymore, I'm someone she just used to know, she can't trust me, and is instigating exH to hurt me in every way he can (I read her messages to him with my own eyes). This whole time, I've done nothing to her. I've done nothing to exH either. See, exH has always used me as a scapegoat, and he told a lot of lies to his mother recently in order to cover his own a$$. This got her to hate me. He's done this before and I forced him to tell her the truth. He did, but went right back to lying. You think she would have learned not to trust his every word by now. If I tell her about it now, it's just going to happen again down the road. It's too exhausting to keep dealing with, so eff it, let her hate me....but if crap happens to me because of it...exH is going to have hell to pay!

I posted on Truu about visiting my the in-laws and MIL's cooking. I love her and she is such a sweet lady. We get along great and I love visiting. The only problem is when we visit we stay at least a week or more because we live so far away. Everything is fried and I mean EVERYTHING (Her pancakes are fried in 1/4 inch of oil) or a casserole that always includes a block of Velveeta cheese and a can of cream of something. I have stomach problems while visiting and so does DH and DS. Last time we visited I had headaches almost the entire time. We offer to do the cooking some nights so we can cook something a little lighter but MIL takes pride in her cooking and feeding us. A fast food place would be healthier than some of the things she cooks. Another problem is they live 45 mins away from the nearest grocery store and restaurants. That means no quick trips to get something different to eat. DS 6 will only eat fresh or steamed veggies because that is how we have always eaten them. MIL only has veggies out of a can and DS refuses to eat them. He pretty much eats anything except her food. We get snack foods to help but there is only so much you can eat of crackers and fruits before you want a real meal to fill you up. We visit next month and I am dreading the visit.

Thanks f-in car for speeding down my block and running me off the road late last night. If I hadn't pulled off to the side, it could have gotten ugly. May karma work in your favor.
