*update*- according to my latest spam email, I am now known as "maevePhoenixSnow".
Ah, WeekendsWell, let's see how I did:
I guess this "to-do" list will follow me to next friday.
On a happier note- karma. While at work on Sunday, I took a call from a woman in California who wanted to send her sister (in MD), a gift certificate to the store. Now, the owner sometimes has issues about things like this- so, rather than giving the woman the run-around (ie "not sure if we can do this, call on monday when the owner will be here, etc") I took her cc#, ran it through, wrote the note to her sister as directed, wrote out the gift certificate, put it all in an envelope, and slapped my own personal stamp on it. I put it in the mailbox as soon as I got home. My reward for deciding to go a tiny little itty bitty extra step to help this woman treat her sister to some $$ on her birthday? A little later in the day, I was tidying up the winter coat display. I often check the pockets in the coats, because sometimes people leave things like gum wrappers or something after trying them on, or there might be those "inspected by" notes or something (which I think look tacky). Imagine my surprise when I reached into the pocket of the coat I was putting back with its mates, and what should I find, but a $50 bill!! It was paperclipped to a receipt from a store in new york state. No name or anything- and the receipt was dated in early september. Now, I KNOW no one had tried on that coat either Sat or Sun, and no one had called asking about any $$ lost at the store or anything. (although someone did lose, and then recover, a $4000 diamond bracelet over the weekend) So, after asking to make sure no one had misplaced anything, I decided that my good deeds of the morning had come back. I know, karma isn't about instant rewards for good deeds, and usually nothing so blatant would EVER happen to me. But it did, and I felt like I had won the lottery. Warm fuzzies all around. Although there would have been warmer fuzziers if I had a clue who lost the $$ originally...
Speaking of warm fuzzies, Cricket made me 20 minutes late to work this morning. Well, it was acutally a conspiracy- Cricket and the down comforter (with a little help from the flannel sheets) decided that the alarm was only a SUGGESTION, and really, can't suggestions be disregarded? :) Note to self- set alarm 20 mins EARLIER from now on!!
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend- I'll try and take some pics tonight... ummmm... I guess that would be before choir! ;)
