Friday is my favorite day.
The best day of the week.
The beginning of the weekend.
Fun at its peek!

Friday after work is great!
All my cares are done.
Friday at the bar with friends,
to laugh and drink, have fun!!

Saturday is great as well.
Sunday's overrated.
Friday is the best of all!
Though, I'm sure it's been debated.

Wrey F.

Happy Friday!!! cheers

Yikes! I had that schedule for a good bit at my old job. I actually liked it only because I was the director for a customer service call center for Bassett Furniture at the time (S.E. Division). Saturday had very few calls because most people figure that kind of office is not open then.

I hated that job with a passion that could vaporize lead. good grief sarcasm

People don't have any problem being mean when there is a phone to hide behind.

Isn't that the truth! As well as online and behind your back.

On the brighter side, the world is full of great people who care about others. We just have to keep an eye out for them and limit our exposure to the nice ones. That's why I don't put up with crap from anyone over the internet. I just sever the connection. LOL

All very true, very true. But lemme' tell you, man. When I first came to Puerto Rico I had a job waiting for me at a local furniture company called Berrios. Same job, running their customer service call center. I never said no to the answer, but there was no way I was gonna take that job. I still have the occasional nightmare to the tune of:

"I just got out my tape measure and measured one side of my sofa, which I bought six years ago, and it is .00000357 millimeters higher than the other! I want a complete refund or I will write a letter to the president of the company, of the United States, and to God himself!!!!"
:rant:

Gary - You build customer kitchens. I have to assume you understand where I'm coming from, aye?

I can see that happening too.

I was installing a set of cabinets in a remodel once. The floors were absolutely atrocious. It sloped almost six inches in 12 feet. Yeah. affraid

So, I had to scribe some of the toe kick off the high end and add to the lower end.

I was in the middle of shimming one when the customer walked in and started going on about how she didn't like the way that shim looked sticking out from under the toe kick. I tried to explain to her that I would be cutting them flush with the toe kick then 'skinning' the entire thing with plywood. Well, she just wouldn't let it go! Started going on about how she would catch her foot on the pieces of wood as she walked by.

It was one these moments :rant: for sure.

I hate ruining someone's day. I try to be nice wherever I'm at--even on the phone or the net. biggrin Though it's hard when other people are mean and snippy for no obvious reason. Rolling Eyes And I love to tease, which sometimes get's taken the wrong way.

That's pretty much the long and short of it, MC. I used to work at a Telemarketing firm (I may have even called a few of you at one time Wink ) and ever since, as annoying as telelmarketers are, I try to be kind to 'em and hang up as fast as I can!

It's a really hard job...so I pity anyone who has to do it to make ends meet like I did.

NICE PEOPLE ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I actually enjoy compulsive people. I got a call just yesterday from a customer who was upset about his Blue Cross pharmaceutical coverage. After I let him blow off steam, I explained that the benefit plan he chose has a restricted formulary and I offered him a much better formulary . . . that, of course, comes with the more expensive plan; ironically, the SAME plan I put him on two years before and he chose to drop!

His enmity then shifted to Medicare and we both enjoyed a good rant about the terrible Medicare Part D prescription design foisted on us by our loving government. Before long, we were having a fun discussion about his "manuscript" covering his personal experiences in "the big one" -- WWII. I explained how POD publishing works and offered to help him find one of the more legit POD firms. He doesn't expect his "book" to go public but is willing to spend a few bucks to document his war years for his family and friends (the perfect fit for POD). He asked how I know so much about this area and I told him of my self-publishing. I honestly did not "push" my book, but he called me today to say he ordered it this morning through Barnes & Noble.

All this started with a pissed off guy calling about a bad experience with a brand-name prescription. Like I said, I enjoy compulsive people. Just got to let them blow off steam before the nice person emerges.

Funny how you guys in WF.org started calling me "salty". When I got ready to leave Vietnam, some nuns at an orphanage where I taught English, French and music (in my off-duty time) gave me an engraved beer stein. It said, "Salty." Nobody ever called me that, but them. I had that mug on my dresser until it fell off and broke about a year ago.

Good Morning!

It's important to get your kids headed in the right direction early in life. Better get your eldest on board soon before it's too late.

biggrin

On a serious note. My aunt used to give coffee to my cousin for hyperactivity. For some reason it acted the complete opposite you would think. Knocked him right out.

I have to be careful how late I drink it or I'll be bouncing off the walls all night.

I love coffee!

Oh Garmar, you're my new best friend!!! The first thing I do when I invite people over is brew a pot of coffee (the good stuff--kona usually). I get abnormally disappointed if they don't like coffee.

I'm not hyperactive, as far as I know, but coffee usually makes me drowsy too. My husband and I usually brew a fresh pot after we get the kids into bed each night.

Oh, yeah... we're gonna get along just fine!

I drink so much coffee. They have the best coffee at work, and that surprises me because it's the automatic (instant) stuff that comes in a big container and gets mixed with hot water. Amazing. And I'm quite particular about my coffee.

I'm planning to buy one of the single serving coffee makers. So I can have something different without having all these containers cluttering up the cabinet.

I'm grumpy from reading about Salty's harrowing escapades through the jungle with a "pink elephant" and my slightly scalded "small chest". :rant:

You get back here Salty! You can run...but you can't hide!
