Let me ask you something I tell ya!

Don't you hate when your hand falls asleep and you know it will be up all night.

Do Lipton employees take coffee breaks?


Do you think that when they asked George Washington for ID that he just whipped out a quarter?


I have the world's largest collection of seashells. I keep it on all the beaches of the world... perhaps you've seen it.


I went to the bank and asked to borrow a cup of money. They said, "What for?" I said, "I'm going to buy some sugar


I'm writing a book. I've got the page numbers done.


I'm writing an unauthorized autobiography.


If a word in the dictionary were misspelled, how would we know?


My friend has a baby. I'm recording all the noises he makes so later I can ask him what he meant.


On the other hand, you have different fingers.


Sponges grow in the ocean. That just kills me. I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be if that didn't happen

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

The other day I... uh, no, that wasn't me.

Sorry I Quit

I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult. I have decided I would like to accept the responsibilities of an 8 year-old again
Here is my list of wants
1.  I want to go to McDonald's and think that it's a four star restaurant.
2.I want to walk to the Piggly Wiggly with a dollar and come home with a whole bag of bubblegum.
3.  I want to go to Baskin Robbins and stare at all the flavors of ice cream and them pick the same kind I always do.
4.  I want to take my Grandma there and watch how she passes up all the flavors and declares that only vanilla will do....remember Mom?
5. I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and make a sidewalk with rocks.
6.I want to make little boats and sail them down the curb when the rain comes....I want it to rain.
7.I want to think M&Msare better than money because you can eat them.
 8.I want to climb the big tree in the middle of the yard at my childhood home and pretend I live there.
9.I want to wake up on Saturday and watch Shirley Temple.
10. I want to sneak out of bed when my parents aren't looking and watch Carol Burnett which was on way past my bedtime.
11.I want to lie under a big oak tree and run a lemonade stand with my friends on a hot summer's day.
12.I want to return to a time when life was simple, when all you knew were colors, multiplication tables, and nursery rhymes, but that didn't bother you, because you didn't know what you didn't know and you didn't care.
All you knew was to be happy because you were blissfully unaware of all the things that should make you worried or upset.
I want to think the world is fair.
That everyone is honest and good.
I want to believe that anything is possible.
I want to be oblivious to the complexities of life and be overly excited by the little things again.
I want to live simple again.
I don't want my day to consist of computer crashes,
mountains of paperwork, depressing news, how to survive more days in the month than there is money in the bank, doctor bills, gossip, illness, and loss of loved ones.
I want to believe in the power of smiles,ATT000541.gif hugs, a kind word, truth, justice, peace, dreams, the imagination, mankind, and making angels in the snow.
So . . .. here's my checkbook and my car keys, my credit card bills and my investment statements. I am officially resigning from adulthood.
And if you want to discuss this further, you'll have to catch me first, cause........
....."Tag! You're it."
Try to Remember the Simple Things in Life. ATT000631.gif
((((((((((((((HUGS FOR EVERYONE))))))))))))))
Hope Ya'll join me !
And remember....
The tree in the middle of the yard is base for tag and hide and seek.
It is second base for baseball games
And if you climb real high and hold on tight it works to find your dreams.

Where's Barbara? She's Back! Enjoy!

A little boy was waiting on his mother to come out of a store. As he waited, he was approached by a man who asked, "Son, can you tell me where the post office is?"

The little boy replied, "Sure, just go straight down the street a couple of blocks and turn to your right."

The man thanked the boy kindly and said, "I'm the new preacher in town, and I'd like for you to come to church on Sunday I'll show you how to get to Heaven."

The little boy replied with a chuckle, "Awww, come on; you don't even know the way to the post office!"

BACK SEAT DRIVER Lisa this ones for you

An elderly Floridian called 911 on her cell phone to report that her car has been broken into. She is hysterical as she explains her situation to the dispatcher:

"They've stolen the stereo, the steering wheel, the brake pedal and even the accelerator " she cried.

The dispatcher said, "Stay calm. An officer is on the way."

 A few minutes later, the officer radios in. "Disregard." He says.

"She got in the back-seat by mistake."   LOL!!!!


Three sisters ages 92, 94 and 96 live in a house together

. One night the 96 year old draws a bath. She puts her foot in and pauses. She yells to the other sisters, "Was I getting in or out of the bath?"

The 94 year old yells back, "I don't know. I'll come up and see."

 She starts up the stairs and pauses. "Was I going up the stairs or down?

" The 92 year old is sitting at the kitchen table having tea listening to her sisters.

 She shakes her head and says, "I sure hope I never get that forgetful, knocking on wood."

 She then yells, "I'll come up and help both of you as soon as I see who's at the door."


As a senior citizen was driving down the freeway, his car phone rang. Answering, he heard his wife's voice urgently warning him, "Herman, I just heard on the news that there's a car going the wrong way on Interstate 77. Please be careful!" "Heck," said Herman, "It's not just one car. It's hundreds of them!"

You Don't Know Me!

Today was something else.

I met a new manager/kid/I am so smart

He told me to be friendly and nice to the customers.

Um...I thought I was

He told me to talk and be friendly with the kids are talking to Miss Barbara who loves children and it is the highlight of her day to talk to them

He told me to thank the customers

Gee...that sounds like a good idea!  How long did you have to work here to learn that???

He told me to make sure the customers had a pleasant experience shopping and to be helpful.

Oh man!  I was really hoping to piss someone off today and now I have to be nice

He gave me a 20 minute lecture on behavior.

Yes really know me good.....NOT

All of this before he even allowed me to be on a register.

Shouldn't a "boss"  watch an employee first to see how they interact with customers and if there is a problem THEN>>>

He had me bagging for 3 hours straight.

Hello!  I am a checker!!!!!!

When I finally got on a register I had to check and then bag all my orders.

I guess that saves them some money......sure sucks for the customers who have to wait while this happens though, not to mention the fact that 500.00 worth of groceries does not fit on that little table,.


Someone forgot to sceudule baggers so when I was bagging I had to bag for 6 registers.

Normally most baggers are responsible for two at most....

I had to refuse to take out one of the orders because there was a 50 lb bag of dog I am going to be able to lift that!

The "managers" all stood around talking to each other.

So...what are your plans for tonight???blahblahblah

I had to go to the back of the store over 15 times to get a bag of ice.

As fast as possible because I had to be back to bag groceries

The front cooler was down.

FIX it!!

Definately need a different job!

I am off for two days...I refuse to go or do anything!

Every year I dress up for Halloween.  When Eric was small I would always dress up something to go along with him. We won many compititions.  One year that I remember with a smile is the year he went as a doctor in training and I was his patient.  I looked like I had just been in a terrible car accident.  That was when he was in the second grade over ten years ago and I had a young girl come through my line at work who remembered me from that LOL  She said she thought I was really hurt until she saw me up on the stage for the contest.


New Job

I think I would like a new job.  I love people but I am begining not to like them very much.

There are many things that people do that drive me crazy.

A lady today yelled at me because she got a letter in the mail about a special at one of our other grocery stores.  It had some items on sale only in their store and she got mad at me because we weren't having the same specials...ummmm...not my fault!!!

Everyone is going crazy buying supplys for school.  Getting mad at me because they waited until the last minute and we are out of some items. ummmm not my fault!!!!

One lady came in and said she left her money at home and could I hold her sale until she went home to get the  not my fault!!!!

I see young and old struggling to buy groceries and making ends meet, most older people even if they do get assistantance is like around 10 dollars a month,

While some people LIE and say they have no support and drive fancy cars and wear diamond rings and have 10 children get the assistance and waste it on junk food.

I had this one lady come in today and use her whole food stamp allowance on a party for the adults.  Chips, Candy etc.

ONe young girl of about 16 years old came through my line today and bought a pregnancy test, diapers and condums.

Some times I just want to scream.

I had to count to ten while smiling at least ten times today.

I need a new job.

I do not want to work with the public anymore.

I wish I could find a proof reading job or learn how to do the medical transcribe.

I have been practicing my typing and am up to 64 words per minute.

I am also painting again.

Right now I am working on an underwater scene.

It calms me down.

If anyone knows of an idea...PLEASE!!!

I am also working on my book I am writing again.  Maybe I will be the next Danielle Stelle...who knows!!!
