First up…I want to thank of all of you who left a comment, sent an e-mail, or even did an entire post (Jay-Man!!) in order to offer advice to my son and address his lack of effort in his first year of High School.
I printed your pearls of wisdom and personal stories off and put them into a nice, book type portfolio which was graciously
The book looks very nice and the contents of each page are what make it an instant classic.
I gave the book to Ryan’s mom Tuesday morning so she could read it at work prior to handing it off to Ryan.
She gave it to him after work yesterday. He read each and every one your offerings, and in the words of his mom, “He was very touched.”
He was puzzled as to why people who do not know him would take the time to do such a thing, but his puzzlement became secondary.
Ryno’s mom, said that while he was reading it, he would periodically laugh, mostly looked thoughtful, and a couple of times his big brown eyes welled up. He likes it…a lot.
I was working so I didn’t get to talk to him very long, but he is already asking me about each of you.
I don’t know how effective your efforts will be upon him, but I do know he digs the thought, and Saturday we’ll talk more about what was written and I’ll let him know what a bunch of perverted psychopaths you all are.
I thank you all for helping me to reach through his thick head and wake that boy up. You’re all top notch.
I screwed up at work yesterday…
It was my first major one in the nearly 18 months since I’ve been working in the Beer Mine. A customer drove in and wanted a 12 pack of Non-Alcoholic beer. This person asked me what kind we had, and I said, “Old Milwaukee N/A.”
Well, the patron took said 12 pack from me, paid, and drove off. A few minutes later, I went to re-stock the Old Milk N/A, when I discovered something odd. There wasn’t one missing. Are ya seeing what happened?
I gave said customer REAL Old Milwaukee not the N/A version. Holy Cow…I may have messed this person up, because it was never returned.
I feel like I’m in the episode of Seinfeld when Jerry sat a drink down near Elaine’s alcoholic boyfriend at a Christmas party, the guy accidentally drank it, and fell off the wagon. Damn, I feel badly about it.
Speaking of work…Halloween Weekend? I am working ALL FUCKING WEEKEND!! Damn straight bitches. I’m closing Friday the 30th. Working 11A-9P on the 31st, and all day the following Sunday.
Boy I tell ya…When Mikey, Little Bill, and Pizza Bill screw someone they leave no doubt that they were there. Lousy Bastards!!
It does have its upside…There should be some scantily clad Halloween chicks coming through that night. I’ll make sure to take pictures.
I think I may dress up as well. I was thinking as going as a Priest. I need to be able to move around to do my job, so that might work pretty well.
I would like to dress up as Jeebus Christ but I worry about that.
What if towards the end of the night some already drunked up customer comes through and sees Jesus waiting on him or her, and freaks out?
That probably wouldn’t be good…Although it would be pretty God Damn funny. Let me re-think that idea.
Happy Hump Day, All!!
