Waste of money...but oh well :)!

So, I had my car towed to my dealership. We thought it was my starter that had gone out. It ended up being a dead battery. So, I had the dealership jump me and a friend follow me to where I have an account with. I have an account at Les Schwab. :). So, the battery was free for me right now ;). So, I spent 103 bucks yesterday for them to tell me it was the battery! Oh yeah, and Les Schwab could have came and installed it at my home! AHHHHHHHHHHH!

Maybe I should "knock" on wood next time!

So last night I was talking to some friends at work telling them how my car has been great! And it's never broke down on me. Well, I was getting ready to leave to go to work and wouldn't you know my car was completely dead today! I don't know what is wrong with it!! AHHHHHHHHHHH! Seriously?! I am somewhat pissed. However, I've decided that if it's a big fix it's gonna have to wait until after my trip! Because, I am not gonna shell out 500 bucks right before a vacation!

New cameras and vacations!!

So...yesterday I bought a beautiful purple digital camera! I know this is lame but I've never owned my own digital camera! I know! I am behind on the times! May 1st-4th I'll be in Las Vegas and St. George. I am SO EXCITED, you guys don't even know. I've not been out of the state (minus wyoming and idaho) in 4 years! I'll definitely post all about my trip! YAY!

Did I do the right thing?

Okay, first off I'd like to pose a question... Here is the situation. Say you work with a girl and she is always saying rude things to people. She has a sexual induendo FOR EVERYTHING and makes sure everyone in the work area can hear her talking in an unprofessional way. If you were in this situation would you tell your boss about this employees behavior?

I am not easily offended unless it comes to religion or politics.. For example my friend at work kept telling me after I had voted for President Obama that I voted for the "Anti-Christ" it really offended me. This same particular person also dogs on religion. Even though this person went on a mission. I respect people's opinions and I hope they respect mine. I am a free thinking 27 year old woman. I have strong beliefs.

Anyway, so the story is this girl at work is very crude in her language and what she says at work. And I finally got sick of hearing it. This particular girl also told me that one of my good friend's cheated on her husband even though I know it's not true because she has been married for over 30 years. I am a good friend and told my friend what was said behind her back. I would like a friend to approach me if someone was bad mouthing me. Come to find out there were 8 people in my area who were also sick of her crude and rude behavior. Well, we all talked to our manager. And my manager talked to her. Well thursday in our team meeting she got up and did a public apology, but then it ended up being a BIG drama fest, she tried to make those of us who had said something feel like crap, because she could have lost her job over this! Well, don't be rude to people and don't talk dirty at work. It's called sexual harrassment and we don't need to deal with it! I am glad that I said something. Because I don't need to listen to it at work of all places!

What kind of country do we live in?

Honestly?! In life 2 things are certain. THERE WILL ALWAYS BE TAXES and EVERYONE DIES! I was just watching the news and they were talking about a Tea Party in Salt Lake. I believe that Bush put us in this financial whirlwind and that Obama isn't helping the situation. Yep as an Obama supporter I am wondering why he is spending so much money when the country is in a recession. I mean honestly. And to be honest I really don't think McCain would have done a good job either. I guess you can say I am disappointed in Obama. If we go bankrupt as a country then I will have lost all faith in our leadership! People always complain about paying taxes. I guess I am kind of bias because I work for the IRS. I don't like paying taxes, but it's something I have to do. I'm held to a "higher standard" on paying my taxes on time. If I don't pay my taxes on time I can lose my job. I can't even file an extension like most tax payers. LOL. I have noticed this year at work that there is a lot less work because people are filing for extensions because they can not pay! And no wonder they can't pay. Obama spends millions of dollars on his Inauguration ceremonies and thus puts our country deeper into debt. And people lose their jobs! So, what does this teach all of us? Don't buy uneccesary things unless YOU CAN AFFORD TO! Instead of bailing out these banks why didn't they give "middle" america each $10,000 to stimulate the economy!

Okay, Now, I am going to shut up! :).

Counting my blessings!

My last post was somewhat of a downer. LOL. I apologize. I would delete it, but it was what I was feeling at the time. Some people in my life have had a much harder life than I have. I should feel very blessed. I have good health, a great family, wonderful friends, and a great job in these troubled economic times. Part of me is glad I didn't get the HR job! Granted the money would be nice, but I work with some amazing people! I just wasn't meant to get the job. I am supposed to be where I am. It's not my time frame. One day I'll get my dream job, it may not be tomorrow, or the next but eventually it'll have to come. Right now I will just be grateful I get paid well and work with some great people. I swear that it feels like every winter I get "seasonal depression"! I need sunshine! It makes me happy to be outside and be active! I had a long week last week! I worked 10 hours of overtime plus my own 10 hours a day. So in 4 days I did 50 hours! :). I don't work tomorrow, or tuesday! YAY! WOOHOO! I am working overtime to buy a Nintendo Wii! Actually I can afford one right now, but I hate buying "unnessary things" sometimes unless there is a good use for it. This is just for fun. :).
