WEEEEEEEEEEEIRD day at work. i swear, all the loonies came out to frolick amidst office supplies (but oddly went home around 7 pm. hrm.)

today, we had:

*** a gentleman that became irate because we didn't carry black highlighters (i meekly showed him the chiseled edged sharpie markers)

*** a lady that screamed at poor pattie, saying it was pattie's fault her utilities were being turned off.

*** a lady (also through pattie's line) that had on no PANTS. i really hope that she was wearing a bathingsuit under that thing she was wearing. it looked like a shirt and short shorts, but at closer look, the 'shorts' were slit WAAAY up the side, to where the waistband would be. she kept sticking her hand through the slit and itching her thigh towards her left butt cheek.

*** a coworker assembled a chair for an older couple... as they were driving down the freeway, the bottom half just.. fell off. i tried to not laugh horrendously as they told me their grisly tale and as i put together a new chair for them.

*** a woman that called, telling me she needed a Canon 6 black and 6 green cartridge. I told her that we had a black, as well as a yellow and a blue, but that there wasn't a green. she called me dumb and said that we HAD to carry the green ink cartridge. No, i stock the ink daily, i can GUARANTEE that we do not carry a green cartridge. i humored her and put her on hold and asked over the radio if anyone had ever heard of such an animal. everyone replied with mirth that yes, yellow and blue DO make green. I got back on the phone and said "i'm sorry, ma'am, we do not carry it in store, someone suggested that you try Canon's website?"

spent WAY too much money during my 1 1/2 hour lunch for dinner, books, and pictures. i had promised a 'before' picture for my 'now' pictures, and there's one WHOPPER that had me disbelieving it was even ME, but here's some more mild ones:

LOOK! it's stacebass and meee! taken april 2003, at my going away party in phoenix.

this was my absolute favorite picture from Halloween of 2004! faetal, dispossessed, and an aubkabob! i'm sad that i don't have a single picture of my ENTIRE Gaz outfit, and there WAS only so much you could do when you had practically no hair, but there you have it.

one of my newest favorite pictures of my brother (brosely) and me. this will remain one of my favoritest pictures until i locate the entire series of pictures we took at denny's that even thinking about has me gaffawing to this day. *wipes tear from eye* good times.

and here's a random Bacci picture (when she was a bit tinier!) that i found on one of the rolls. she used to do cute stuff like watch t.v. (especially the simpsons), and attack the screen when i would play video games. it bores her now, so she would rather play fetch with a foam ball that's dripping with her saliva.

i'll scan more in within the next few days, i would like to do them in series, as there's SO many stories to tell with each set, and each set had so many memories on them:

- my going away party when i moved from phoenix
- halloween and my hallowedding
- my birthday dinner
- my birthday party
- random work pictures

okay, maybe not THAT many different pictures, but still. i'm sleepy and going to bed.

it's anime! maybe she's watching HENTAI! ha ha ha.

from the ears in the lower left hand corner, apparantly it's something on the disney channel. which is funny, as we never watch that channel.

my cat used to watch TV too- but only if other animals were on screen. she would try to catch them. She could care less about people on screen :)

You are a beautiful woman. :)

I LOVE the one of Bacci watching TV. Damn that's cute. The one of you and your brother is so sweet.

Question: What the hell would a black marker highlight if it is black?!?! That's stupid.

if i remember correctly, he ended up buying the chiseled sharpies and grumbling the whole time. one of my favorite things to do sometimes to those people that are absolute JERKS about wanting something ridiculous like that is to say 'hrm. we don't have it here, i'm sorry. maybe try staples?' i'm wondering if after 3 or 4 different stops with everyone staring at them with the same odd look that maybe they'll get the HINT that what they're looking for doesn't exist.

What exactly would you DO with a black 'highlighter'? I'm confused!
Apr. 27th, 2006 12:25 am (UTC)
highlight stuff you DON'T want to remember?

I never realized the office supply store was so darn busy.

I order our office supplies online. =)

A black highlighter?!?

he seemed to be quite happy with the chiseled point sharpies i gave him, so...

i can tell back to school is coming again because our general clientelle is changing greatly.

Last time I checked, most printers use CMYK to print color. Cyan(blue) Magenta(red) Yellow(yellow) Ksomething(black). I'm not too sure about the newer 6 (or possibly more) color printers though.

well, the ones that take the 6 cartridges at work taks 6 of them, the cmyk and then the light cyan and light magenta for that "OH SO SNAZZY PICTURE LOOK!" she insisted on telling me that hers takes 8 cartridges, and that one of them is green. i'm wondering what the 7th cartridge is, since the 8th is green. purple, mayhaps? plaid?

i'll certainly stand corrected if someone comes out and tells me that they have one of those magical 8 cartridge canon computers. in the meantime, i'ls sit confident in that every single coworker, livejournal acquaintance, and myself is correct and that the lady was sniffing glue.

Your brother and your cat are both absolutely adorable!!!!!!!!!!!
and faetal has the most perfect smile I've ever seen. and dispossessed has great hair.

And I think that about wraps up my commentary on your friends!

Oh and cool glasses in the first pic :-)
Apr. 27th, 2006 12:28 am (UTC)
thank you! i'm quite jealous of andrea's smile! and drew still has much longer more luxurious tresses than i!

i love my glasses, too, though it's high time to get new ones: i haven't been to the eye doctor in over 3 years and not only has my prescription drastically changed, but they so feel like they're about to fall apart!!

Oh man, I hate it when I have to suggest to customers that they might be completely stupid. Carefully choosing your words so you seem like you're just as mystified as them why you don't carry black paper to print on...

ha ha. like when i had to inform a gentleman that he couldn't take a cruise from VEGAS to the caribbean, many many moons ago. "iiiiiii'm sorry, sir, but no cruise lines are currently offering that itinerary!"

hoo, wee, i had to put him on hold for a moment while i 'checked' just so that i could keep from outright laughing.

Good times at the store. green ink... Cute pics though. Bacci is adorable
Jul. 22nd, 2005 05:30 pm (UTC)

Aug. 7th, 2006 08:09 pm (UTC)
and thankfully doesn't look like me anymore, either!!
Jul. 23rd, 2005 04:31 am (UTC)
aw cute kitty
Jul. 23rd, 2005 12:00 pm (UTC)
i have a question.

is the dude in the second picture looking down someone shirt?
Aug. 2nd, 2005 06:31 pm (UTC)
You look SO sexy with that eyeliner, seriously. You should wear heavy eyeliner more often. and did you have bangs? Well, it looks like it and I think bangs would really flatter your face. So Bel's recommendation is, cut y'self some short, thin bangs.
Jun. 13th, 2006 03:07 am (UTC)
i HAD cut me some bangs, but now they're driving me beyond batty as i wait for them to grow back out! i was VERY pleased today to be able to finally pull my hair into two tiny pig tail like things. i woke up and just could not HANDLE the feeling of hair on the back of my neck! bleh!
