And boy am I glad! This week has turned into a marathon, and I was not prepared to run it. One of our co-workers ( she who was hired to fill in while I was out on disablility) has gone out on disablitily herself. She's 3 months pregnant, and having problems. While we all feel for her, we also know that the chances of her returning are slim-to-none. She moved up here from the Ft. Lauderdale area last fall, to be close to her Grandmother- who has recently passed away. And she was forever complaining about living here. Not enough to do, too "tranquil" etc. So we think ( and have sources telling us the same) that by the time her "time" comes, she will be back down south. So we are 1 person down. Which, granted, doesn't sound like much- but there are only 2 full time ( 40 hours) one 35 hour ( me!) and 1 part time(15hrs) tech, to handle 95 hours per week. That means most days- NO overlap. We do 300+ prescriptions per day!! We type, fill, answer phones, and handle cash registers at both the inside counter, and the drive-thru window! OUCH! the last 2 days, I had to work 10 hour shifts! Not to mention, 2 of the other techs are full time students, whose schedules are such that flexability of work hours are not an option. We really need to hire someone fast! 'Cause I can't ( at this time) keep up these hours! Everything on my body is still aching from the last few days. And I still work 2 - 10 this evening. I don't know what they're gonna do next week, when I have my Chemo. I doubt I'll be able to work the next 2-3 days after........
Well, off my soapbox now- and it's Friday! So this week's "Giggle fest!" have a great weekend! Peace and Love! KC
ORDERING PIZZA IN 2008 This is so close to what is probably going to be happening in 2008 that we're not sure how funny this really is...
Operator: Thank you for calling Pizza Hut. May I have your national ID number?
Customer: Hi, I'd like to place an order
Operator: I must have your NIDN first, sir.
Customer: My National ID Number, yeah, hold on, eh, it's 6102049998-45-54610.
Operator: Thank you Mr Sheehan. I see you live at 1742 Meadowland Drive, and the phone number is 494-2366. Your office number over at Lincoln Insurance is 745-2302 and your cell number is 266-2566. Email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Which number are you calling from sir?
Customer: Huh? I'm at home. Where'd you get all this information?
Operator: We're wired into the HSS, sir.
Customer: The HSS, what is that?
Operator: We're wired into the Homeland Security System, sir. This will add only 15 seconds to your ordering time.
Customer: (sighs) Oh well, I'd like to order a couple of your All-Meat Special pizzas.
Operator: I don't think that's a good idea, sir.
Customer: Whaddya mean?
Operator: Sir, your medical records and commode sensors indicate that you've got very high blood pressure and extremely high cholesterol. Your National Health Care provider won't allow such an unhealthy choice.
Customer: What?!?! What do you recommend, then?
Operator: You might try our low-fat Soybean Pizza. I'm sure you'll like it.
Customer: What makes you think I'd like something like that?
Operator: Well, you checked out 'Gourmet Soybean Recipes' from your local library last week, sir. That's why I made the suggestion.
Customer: All right, all right. Give me two family-sized ones, then.
Operator: That should be plenty for you, your wife and your four kids. Your 2 dogs can finish the crusts, sir. Your total is $49.99.
Customer: Lemme give you my credit card number.
Operator: I'm sorry sir, but I'm afraid you'll have to pay in cash. Your credit card balance is over its limit
Customer: I'll run over to the ATM and get some cash before your driver gets here.
Operator: That won't work either, sir. Your checking account is overdrawn also.
Customer: Never mind! Just send the pizzas. I'll have the cash ready. How long will it take? Operator: We're running a little behind, sir. It'll be about 45 minutes, sir. If you're in a hurry you might want to pick'em up while you're out getting the cash, but then, carrying pizzas on a motorcycle can be a little awkward.
Customer: Wait! How do you know I ride a scooter?
Operator: It says here you're in arrears on your car payments, so your car got repo'ed. But your Harley's paid for and you just filled the tank yesterday.
Customer: Well, I'll be a #%#^^&$%^$@#
Operator: I'd advise watching your language, sir. You've already got a July 4, 2003 conviction for cussing out a cop and another one I see here in September for contempt at your hearing for cussing at a judge. Oh yes, I see here that you just got out from a 90 day stay in the State Correctional Facility. Is this your first pizza since your return to society?
Operator: Will there be anything else, sir?
Customer: Yes, I have a coupon for a free 2 liter of Coke..
Operator: I'm sorry sir, but our ad's exclusionary clause prevents us from offering free soda to diabetics. The New Constitution prohibits this.
Thank you for calling Pizza Hut.
