Saturday was not a fun day. I worked from 10-5, my usual Saturday shift.. but this time it was worse because this weekend was actually busy. There were various sport tournaments this weekend which made us busy and also people from the hockey tournament had 40% off coupons. And of course... I got stuck in Rockport. It was not as busy as Reebok, but I find with Rockport there is usually more messy situations. Like for instance, I had one couple with a large purchase of stuff from Reebok (both cashes were occupied so they came over to me). The purchase got a little crazy when I was unsure about the total. After everything was sorted out (it took about 10 minutes for everything), the couple thanked me and walked away. As they were walking away, two older ladies were leaving as well. One looked at me and exclaimed they did not find what they were looking for but it would have been better if they had some help, stuck her nose up and walked out the door. I stood there in shock for a moment at her statement. I turned around, still with my jaw dropped in shock. A customer who had over heard the remark looked back at me in shock as well and told me not to worry about them and that it was not my fault that I was busy. Later on when the customer and his wife came up to the cash and they told me I was doing a great job and not to let anyone else get me down. Sometimes I hate customers, sometimes they are great.
When mom picked me up from work, she had some sad news to tell me. Our friends Joan and John Laurent (they are sort of my fake grandparents), well their lovely dog Buffy has gone off to heaven. I loved that dog, but I know it was her time to go and I know (cheesy yes...) but all Dogs do go to heaven.

Today, I stayed home from church. I was tired and not feeling the greatest mood wise. I have been down lately and felt like no one was really around to help me up.. but I ended up getting myself up because I was the one that brought myself down. Life is full of setbacks, success is determined by how you handle setbacks.
This week : Work and Hello to December. December=Christmas, Christmas=all I want right now.
Hope you all had a good weekend!
