Forty-Niiiiiiiiiiiine, Fifty!

Ready or not, here I come! 

Do you remember shouting that out during a game of hide and go seek?  I do!  But that's not what this post is about.

Mission accomplished baby!  I have *gasp* 50 followers!  Mr. 49 & Mr. 50 popped up yesterday, bless their hearts.  Mr. 49 is Alcantar, and when I looked at it quickly in work, I thought it said Alcanthang, but it ain't so.  lol  Potato, potahto.

And Lucky Mr. 50....You should get a prize for being my 50th follower...feel free to email me in case I think of something.  Mr. 50 is a dude called FullHouse538, no one I remember from this blog.  BUT, you may not know this, but my memory is long and true.  Not so much if I have to remember to bring something home, but I tend to remember those who I've played with for years and years and Fullhouse538 is ringing a bell.  I think I played against him in one of the BBTs.  Remember those?  I may have also kicked his ass.  :)  Anyway, I'm not sure but I think that's the case.  In any event, welcome, welcome, welcome!  I may seem a bit abrasive at times, but I'm really very sweet.  Erm, unless we're in a poker game, in which case I want to take you out at the knees. :)

I normally don't post on Saturdays but wanted to mention mah new boyz.  Now that we've reached my sister's age it's time to reach for my mother's!  My mom just turned 70 years old btw so that is what we are shooting for. 

Since I have you here, I may as well tell you a story - true story as some things that happen to me, you just could not fucking make up.  Let's get back to the receptionist at work, shall we?

When last we left off I was still waiting for my calendars, right?  A large order from WB Mason comes in but she never comes by with my stuff.  Finally late in the afternoon I ask again.

"Oh it might be in the big box that came in this morning."

"You think?"

"I could go open it!"

I touch my fingre to my nose.  Bingo!

An hour later.......

One calendar is on her desk and I snag it.  I ask about the other and she says 'Oh that, I think it's on back order."

Awesome.

"Find out how long the lead time is.  If it's too long I'll just order another one."  This one is more vital as it's my daily book where critical shit goes.

"Just pick another one and I'll order it!"

"No.  Find out the lead time!"  OMFG  So that's where we are calendar wise.  She also places a peapod order for the office so we have drinks and refreshments for presentations etc.  Her peapod order came in at noon on Friday and we have a big presention on Friday afternoons.  Very good!  Except she comes by and says she forgot to get crackers, or cookies, or dip and needs petty cash to go buy some.  Pisses me off.....but I give her some money.  She comes back a half hour later and hands me a penny.  A PENNY. 

"Where's the receipt and the change?"

"Oh, you're not going to believe this but I lost them both...the receipt and the change, except this!"  Again she shoves A PENNY at me.

"How could that happen?"

"I put the change and receipt in my pocket.  I guess it all fell out except THIS."  (again with the penny)

Anyone believe this story?  If you do I have a lovely structure called the Zakim Bridge I'd like to sell you.

Play smart.

Congrats on 50. Next stop isn't 70, it's 100! Go for it!

How much for the bridge?

Cranky said...

VJ - sometimes it's easier to do things yourself. That's what she's trying to drive you to with her incompetent behaviors. Are you involved in her review? If you were, she'd probably straighten up and fly right.

Gary said...

thought she was leaving...

Josie said...

Cranky, she's been doing this for years. The thing is it's a moot point now as she's leaving to go back to Canada end of Jan. Because we are so slow we are not going to be replacing her and using the automated machine instead. I am dividing up her responsibilities, and i think this will really be more efficient in the end.

Josie said...

@mojo, ty!

@lightning, dinner in vegas is the price. Save your pennie...erm or comps. :)

Josie said...

@gary, yes she is, so what little she cared before is now out the window.

KenP said...

A paper based calendar, how quaint.

I say quaint; anybody thinking anal? Bet she has a day planner as backup.

Paul said...

So if your sister is 50 you could possibly be about.....45?

Don't kill me....

Zin said...

Miss Josie i would really like to hear her side of the story, lol.

Josie said...

@ken, i wouldn't say anal exactly, but the daily planner is what's missing.

@paul, i may have to kill you...how bout 44.5? :)

@zin, i am truly being understated.

Josie said...

oh and Paul....Whore! :)

Zin said...

How were the cookies, crackers and dip, lol?

Paul said...

You are alright MJ......lol

41 here...

Josie said...

@Paul ty....I remember 41. *sigh*

@zin... I don't know but I'm guessing not great. Btw I just made tacos. Yummy. Beef.

Zin said...

@josie, glad to hear your a beef eater...

Josie said...

Oh I like beef alright.

Gary said...

anyone? anyone?

Zin said...

@josie, you didn't get it or did you?

Josie said...

@zin, I most certainly did. This is not my first rodeo.

Zin said...

Josie, do you like all Mexican food, like menudo, caldo de rez, barbacoa(cheek meat)etc...

Josie said...

Zin, I love Mexican food but have never tried whatever it is you've mentioned. As for cheek meat, i've heard it's a delicacy and quite yummy, but the idea of eating "cheek" gives me the willies.

Josie said...

Oooo just googled caldo de rez and it looks delish!

Zin said...

How about them Houston Texans miss josie...

Josie said...

Zin they looked damn good tonight. Foster is one of my RB in my post season fantasy league and I'm hoping he scored me some big points.

Zin said...

Eat some cheek meat once and you will forget about the willies...

Barboca tacos with some cilantro, onion and a dab of guacamole, does not get any better...

Josie said...

well zinny, that's all you had to say. I'd eat a shoe if it had cilantro, onion and guacamole on it.
