Thursday Thirteen...

Thirteen Things that make my day at work less enjoyable that I would like.

1. Mail that reads....FINAL NOTICE...bla, blah, by Jan 30...blah, blah, blah....collections...blah, blah, blah...

2. The pasta in my lunch leaked. Now I have sauce on my drink, sauce on my chips, sauce everywhere. I'm not sure I've ever used the word "sauce" that many times before. Sauce. Sauce. Sauce.

3. Calls that start "Ma'am, if I may have a minute of your time, I'd like to tell you about how using XXX credit card processing can save you money"

4. The fact that I didn't even unlock the door until 10 minutes after, and no one noticed.

5. I skipped Starbucks in fear of provoking my face, that clearly has had it in for me since I was 14. Caffeine=UGLY for me.

6. We are out of Post-its. I love Post-Its.

7. My beloved laptop, AKA my Baby, stayed home today.

8. There is no chocolate here. None.

9. The nine million racks of clothes to sort and price. Don't ever do consignment. Ever. If you own a store, sell only shiny, new things that you can price in massive quantities. Trust me on this one.

10. Had to leave this morning with wet hair. Resemble frizzy, angry llama.

11. Writing checks that don't involve buying something nice for myself.

12. Seeing the mounds of crap to get done. Deciding to delegate. Realizing I don't have any employees to delgate to.

13. People who know their little angel is poopy, and ignore my polite mention of a changing table, diapers, and wipes in the bathroom. "We'll just be a minute...then I'll change him in the car." Yes, but I'll smell Junior, for the next hour.

How can people NOT be considerate or self-conscious of that fact that their kid did a little poopy in his diaper??? AAARGGHH!

I like post-its too. Awesome invention.

Thanks for stopping by my 13.

Too funny!

3. I get credit sales calls at work, too...WTF?

5. I always hear the siren call of Starbucks in the morning...come to think of it...that little lady on the insignia prolly IS a siren!

8. No chocolate, no peace, Know chocolate, know peace.

13. Parents must consider that their fellow earthlings (including their own little angels) do not like remaining in a suspended state of poopiness, nor do they appreciate smelling state of poopiness. This is what the Water Closet abolished. Please follow suit.

Did you leave your laptop at home on purpose? That's so sad, I'd miss it to much. ;)

LOLOL! One of the funniest lists today. And I LOVE the oblivious mom in #13. A mom becomes immune to her son/daughter's poopy messes after a while. *grin*

Mine are up

You kill me, you know that?

Sorry, I love the sound/smell of a tiny one.. at least until they start getting forumula/big boy food... until then it is all sweet as sugar.. or in the case of my girls... bacon butt.

Or am I revealing too much?
