Who You Gonna Call?

So 2 weeks ago I signed up for this silly competition at work called 'Cashier Olympics'. I only cashier one day a week at work and the rest of the time I'm usually in the phone center. I didn't think I would be good at this olympics because I'm a little rusty on the ringin'. So I show up(I get paid for doing this!) and only 4 cashiers show up! 20 people had signed up originally so it was little sad but that means I had a better chance at winning.

We had to do little tests to win. I got the highest score on the written test. I twas random questions about cashiering. Then I ran around the store like crazy for a scavenger hunt. Then we had a cart full of things we had to 'return' and put in the right department bins. So with only 4 people I figured I would win. And I did! I won 3rd place. I was really happy because I won $50, too! Then I realized I would have to compete in the District Olympics and my happiness faded away.

The district olympics were on Sunday. The 3 of us that won worked so hard on our float(well they did. I never work!) and we made kick butt costumes. Our results from the districts were I was the only person out of about 30 that got 'Name The Department' game 100% correct. Go me. Our silver medel won the 2nd place in district. She got a sweet turkey fryer(raaaandom!). AND WE WON BEST COSTUMES! Thats it.

Here is a picture.I give you permission to make fun of us. We are proud Ghost Busters.

Pumpkin Fun

I've never really been a huge fan of Halloween. It was never a holiday that I got overly excited about at all. I'm much more of a huge Christmas fan. I love everything about Christmas time expect the coldness.

Anyway, this year I am actually super duper excited about Halloween. I don't really know what it is but I can feel the excitement in my BONES! I have been watching scary movies on the Chiller network every night(even without Adam!). I bought new Halloween decorations. I even feel the crafty coming out in me.

Here is a pumpkin craft I made my boys do with me. We painted the pumpkins. It was really easy but a lot of fun. I did the two pumpkins on the left(the pirate and the chalkboard painted). Adam did the devil looking pumpkin. Gage did the crazy finger painted one. I think Adam won hands down on this project. Who knew the man could paint?!

I've been having such a great time since my mom has been here that I haven't even felt like getting on the computer. It is really nice having her around. I wish we lived closer to each other. She leaves on Thursday and I will be very very sad.

As you can see in the picture above Gage is going to be Tigger for Halloween. I decided to dress him up on Monday in the costume. We went on a hayride, a cornmaze, and through a pumpkin patch. It was awesome. Everywhere we went everyone was commenting on how cute he was. I know how cute he is already so I wish I could say the comments got old but they didn't. They never could. I loved it and so did Gage. Hah.

Speaking of Tigger and Halloween, I am actually pretty upset that I can't match Gage this year. Last year we both dressed up as pirates and it was fun. This year though there is no way you are getting me in a pooh, eeyore, piglet etc etc costume. I guess just being me will have to suffice.

I lied.

So, on Monday I was really looking forward to bloggin' and readin' blogs but it didn't happen. What did happen was I had an appointment with my dentist. I think its safe to say that no one likes a dentist unless you're married to one or something. I especially don't like my dentist because without warning he decided he was going to yank my widsom tooth out of my mouth right at that appointment!

I wanted it out! Oh believe me. I really wanted it out. It was hurting all week. I just wasn't prepared to have come out on Monday. I figured it would take a few days for referrals etc etc. I don't know.

No. I am now missing 1 wisdom tooth. My mouth is swollen and for some reason no matter how many vicadin I take I am still in pain. On top of that I also have a nasty infection in my mouth where my gum and my cheek were swollen. I was biting it. So yuck not fun.

So I'm not updating until my mouth is better.

My mom is coming to visit on Monday so be prepared for lots of crazy blonde stories!

Hear Me Roar

I work at a home improvement store. Its a kind of store that sells materials that typically men do for a career or a hobby. Women do shop there in the more girly departments and then you have the women that do typical men jobs. Then you have people who shop there for presents for other people but they don't count in this post. I would never sexually discriminate any of them by assuming they CAN'T do their job just because they are women. It really amazes me how many customers come in and ASSUME that I can't answer their questions because I am a woman.

I have worked there for over 2 years so even if I had no prior knowledge in some areas I can now answer pretty general questions. Usually what I know helps the customer but sometimes I don't even get that far because they would rather have a man answer. Seriously, I have had people tell me this. WTF?

Anyway, last night at work I was suppose to be in my little room answering a phone all night. But they were short on cashiers and since I'm trained I did returns all night as well as answering the phones. I also did breaks at the service desk. I was quite the busy gal last night. So a guy walks in and starts asking a co worker a question about pellet wood. The co worker said 'I'm sorry I don't know anything about that you will have to ask her.' He then pointed to me. I heard the whole question so I start answering the guys question and he refuses to look at me! He is still staring at my male co worker like I wasn't even there! I'm a little shorter than these guys so I lean over, stand on my tip-e-toes and wave my hands in front of his face. He still refuses to acknowledge me. I don't know what his problem was/is with females but apparently he has one. While I was taking down his information he still absolutely refused to make eye contact with me. It was like he was embarrassed that me, a female, was helping him.

It really angered and disgusted me that people treat other people(women) this way.
