Semi Nice Post

Who needs raises and bonuses?

Not this girl!

This girl is content with knowing her work is appreciated and valued and... ... ... ... yeah whatever! You know me better than that! (or should by now)


Something really nice happened to me yesterday.
I went in to translate for this one young woman (my third time this month) and as she was leaving she gave me a candy!
No jokers, she didn't think I was wearing my Halloween costume of Hell Raiser (that's my daily outfit) therefore felt the need to give me a treat.
She was genuinely grateful for the assistance I've given her!
[this feeling what is it?] OH! It must be job satisfaction!
Anyway... this made the rest of my day and I will carry this feeling until Sunday night when I realize I have to return to deal with the sub-culture that is the underdeveloped warped brains of the not quite living!
::deep breath:: ::happy place::
♪ ♫ ♥I've got sunshine on a cloudy day... something something month of May♥...♪ ♫


  1. and when it's cold outside

    just pretend there are music notes

  2. You dudettes are like messing with my timeline here... is it yesterday or is it today?? Hmmmm...

    [snapping my fingers and doing a little back and forth side step]

    ♫♪♥ What can make me feel this way? MY GIRL, my girl, MY GIRL! Talking 'bout my giiiiirl!! ♥♫♪

  3. I'm clicking before my internet gives out again.

    Click Quickies!

  4. So you're not just in it for the money. Chocolate works too. Maybe you could negotiate a raise from Oz in terms of candy? Finally a real use for chocolate money...

  5. once, Drew and I had a little debate about whether there was any chocolate in white chocolate. yes indeed, I won the debate.

  6. I used to feel job satisfaction when the little tykes went on summer break.

  7. no school for me today so i can play volley with you guyz!
    can i have some of that candy?

  8. fuckola, its not even 10!! im gonna go get some starbucks!

    sure the day i can play and nobodys there! are you ignoring me?

  10. You are just spreading your sunshiney joy all over! :D

  11. EWBL:
    I know the feeling, mine was on and off too.

    I’m sure the local shoe stores will be happy to know I will be paying them in chocolate money.

    jean knee:
    If I would have been a school teacher I would have pulled the fire alarm everyday!

    big head:
    Chillax dude, it’s Friday. Friday = OZday.

    ♫♪ Yup, singing the grey skies away!♫♪ :o)

  12. okay then ive got jokes for you nice and clean ones.

    What are prehistoric monsters called when they sleep?
    A dinosnore!

    What is the fruitiest lesson?
    History, because it's full of dates!

    What is a myth?
    A female moth!

    This one made me think of you.

    Married life is full of excitement and frustration:
    * In the first year of marriage, the man speaks and the woman listens.
    * In the second year, the woman speaks and the man listens.
    * In the third year, they both speak and the neighbors listen.

  13. The only the thing that makes work bearable apart from a decent wage cheque, is a little appreciation. My favourite little appreciation once came from one of my childbirth patients who presented me with a nice bottle of Jack Daniels. "I knew you'd much prefer that to a box of chocolates!" She told me. Dead right girl, I thought to myself.

  14. magdalene:
    Now I feel cheated! Maybe next time I'll put a sign that says:

    "Contributions in the form of booze are encouraged" ☺

  15. tsk tsk tsk, clicking my tongue at you

  16. :op :op :op me sticking my tongue out at you...

  17. Candy is nice...but I'll still take that huge bonus of cash!

  18. VE:
    Yeah me too but unfortunately my boss is too much of a tight wad!

  19. Really? My boss told me that we get extra work tomorrow for no extra pay. Yippeee! I love being treated with a slave mentality.

  20. EWBL:
    We should round up all unreasonable bosses and make them do our jobs for a week, they'd pay us double to come back to work!

  21. My boss is a complete push over... Not that it's bad all the time cause you can talk him in to a lot of things.. But there are times that I wish he wasn't, I think my team unfortunately ALWAYS GETS SCREWED cause there is no one with a back bone to defend us. WE of course try but in corporate America we are nothing but the little pee-ons...

    I hate my job... Oh well... Im really looking forward to that Maternity Leave.


Ask me no questions and I’ll tell you no lies.
