Why I Love My Job

This past Saturday I poured beer at this event:

During the event a poor lad did this right in front of my sampling station:

These were some of the higher than average ABV brews that contributed to his demonic possession. There were many more on hand:

Giving up my Saturday afternoon was worth seeing this poor guy toss his cookies. If his head had spun around it would have been the coup de grace but alas a liquid substance coming from his nose was as close as it came. Please bear in mind the event was a sampling event which meant pours of 4 oz. but I was much more generous than that and some of the beers were 10% ABV (alcohol by volume) so I should have squelched the over generosity but I didn't. And last but not least I was able to enjoy the hooch as well and these are reasons why I love my job.

Long Weekend

First stop was Palm Beach Resort. My home for the next 3 days...

Second stop was Live Bait which had karaoke and a ton of Spring Breakers & then onto Live Bait Too with a live band in the back...

This was the band and they were loud! They played 80's and 90's rock. I did request Motley Crue's Home Sweet Home and they gave it a good shot...

Next day for lunch was here...bloody mary's and crab claws.

Then I landed here...

To see these guys who were nothing short of fantastic...

Final stop was here for a super jazz brunch and mimosas...

And now I am here, my home for the next 40 hours.

I shop at Wal-Mart. Sure, it injures my pride from time to time but I still go. Not one shopping event have I ever encountered what you will find below. I don't know whether to count that as fortune or misfortune. You decide.

Good Grief

An employee had a retirement party yesterday. Initially I said I was going to attend. When the date arrived yesterday I honestly had forgotten until someone asked me yesterday morning if I were going. I said "oh shit, I forgot". As our VP was departing yesterday afternoon he said "Kimmy, will I see you later?" I responded with a no sir, I actually had forgotten about it. Why didn't I just go you ask? I was not dressed for the affair.

We have a accounting/bookkeeper person who has been here forever and bless her heart, well, bless her heart. This morning she comes in & asks where I was last night. She said several people were asking about you & they said "a no show again". Then she trots off to the break room & begins to say "how dare she not show up". So I ask this - why in the world should it matter to her?

And earlier in the week I had to complete an end of the month report. I do it every month, there is no surprise. This particular day, as the same is every Monday we only have one route that goes out to sell. The outgoing route was back into the warehouse & had completed his check up by 4:00pm. I completed my report & sent out emails to everyone that matters that the EOM settlement was completed. I was out the door by 4:18. After I departed she storms into the sales managers office and asks "Did Kim leave"...her thinking I didn't do what I was supposed to do. Her balloon was quickly deflated when our sales manager informed her that he had just gotten an email that everything had been completed.

Why are people are like this? Are their lives so small and incomplete that they have to worry about other people's business?

BTW, she is at retirement age & says she doesn't want to retire because she doesn't want to be bored (remember she is a bookkeeper). She has no children & I think her husband may be the local drunk. She takes all kinds of medicine to stay alive and loves to chat about her medical issues & if you've been sick, well she has been sicker.

Why oh why?
