Love it

I just love life’s little ironies.  They are so amusing when they are happening to other people.  When they happen to me, I just have to roll my eyes.  So, I’ve done a lot of eyerolling this week.

We travelled off to the end of the earth tonight to watch my son’s first football game of the season.  On the way home, I was thirsty, so we stopped at the next town, which has several convenience stores on the highway.  Wouldn’t you know, I tell my daughter to pull into the Shell station and who else is there but my ex husband and my other daughter.  Five C-stores and I have to pick the one that slimeball is at. Ugh!

Work has been one big ironic exclamation point this week.  A month or two ago I was telling everyone how much I liked my job because I have no stress.  I go to work, I do my job, I come home.  No responsibility other than doing the job to the best of my ability.  And now I’m training new people because I work with the assistant manager.  It’s his job to do it and he always gets them started (like 15 minutes!) and then he’s off yelling at people and doing other things and I’m stuck with training.....  ugh.
Two weeks ago I trained a new guy and was real happy with how he was doing and happy I had some extra help in my area.  Monday morning I got 2 newbies and they moved the other one on elsewhere.  Sigh.....  And the one new guy is 50, lacks confidence and is slow. The new gal is 25 and sassy and seems like she’s going to be a know it all.  

And all the years that I didn’t pick up behind my kids, just left their mess set, well now I’m picking up behind my cute young boss all the time.  Good grief!

    • No, didn’t actually see him face to face so didn’t say hello. He does not speak to me under any circumstances.  I could be civil, but he’s still holding a grudge after 10 years.

       Just about started a domestic disurbance out front of the store with Gracie though.  She was standing there smoking a cigarette and I tried to put it out.  Some biker on his cell phone was giving us really dirty looks.  That would have been an AWESOME irony if a biker on his cell phone called the cops.  LOL!

    • Needless to say, I still don’t know how to accept that one of my kids is a smoker, especially after she just attended the funeral this week of her great uncle who died of lung cancer. frown

    • Right!  Both my daughters and my nieces watched my aunt die from complications from smoking. My mom died from lung cancer. And when my sister had her heart attack and Watson a ventilator they had to pump gunk out of her lungs. The Dr explained that hers looked the way it did because she smokes.

    • Oh my, just having gone through BIL dying from lung cancer and seeing people around me still smoking, it sickens me.  My good friend around the corner was also on a ventilator and when we saw her in the hospital, hub and I did not even recognize her...she was filled up with so much toxin..so I can absolutely relate to you, Vikki!

      So sorry to hear of your family members dying of that terrible disease..T & Vikki.heartbreak

    • Sending love and support your way tulip.   Maybe it will take something like a guy that she really likes, breaking up with her cuz she smells like an ashtray...or something.    Meeting the right guy did it for me :)   There is always hope, love and appreciation.   She’ll find her way.  heart

    • They will grow up and they will realize who had there best interest at heart it might take a while but it will happen. I have two step children well they are all adults now I have five total children. My step children thought I was the wicked step mother. They lived with us. My three children were brought up to clean up after there selves and do chores as well as respect adults. His two were not taught how to clean they didnt even have to clean there room until I moved in. There grandparents would tell them how horrible I was for making them clean up after themselves and do chores so they would come home from seeing them and be very disrespectful and think that I was being horrible to them. It caused a lot of problems. You can imagine the problems that occured but this is what I wanted to tell you from all this my two step children which I dont think as step I love them the same as my own. They both came to me when they grew up and told me how sorry they were for giving me such a hard time. They both realized that because I loved them is why I tried to keep all five of my children on the right road and was hard on them sometimes. But it payed off they both respect me and realize I loved them.
