Just in the Nick (HA) of Time

Although this title might be misleading, it is, in fact, not about Nick. I am writing to tell you the joyous news that I am off work today!!! AMAZING! After 14 days (and the days off before that were with the flu, so I am thinking they hardly count) and 130 hours of work, I have finally got a few days off.

I realized that I really needed it yesterday when I made a quick Wendy's run for some Frosty's for Tarp and me. I pulled up to the speaker, pulled up to the pay window....and then just drove away! NO FROSTY'S!! I stop to turn out of the Wendy's drive through and as I check my rear view mirror (as all good drivers should) I notice the head of the guy running the drive through hanging out the window with a Frosty is his this is embarrassing. Even more embarrassing (well maybe not) was when I threw the car into reverse in order to get my delicious treat (I would have driven away and never looked back, what with all the shame and everything, but it would have been worse to walk into work without them..) So I throw the car into reverse and fly back there...but you see...I am not so great at backing up. So, I ended up about five feet from the window. My arms are long, but there was no making it. Yep, I had to park the car, take off my seat belt, get out and walk over to the guy at the window. He wouldn't even make eye contact... I did see a mean little grin on his face though. No doubt he was talking about the idiot at the drive through all day. Awesome.

We had an interview yesterday for a guy who is most definitely the one! I am so excited about him. He actually knew what we do (which is rare) and (GASP!) he had DONE IT BEFORE!!! He did it in a class at school. Well, sir, you have found yourself a job! After he left Tarp was going on and on about how that was the best interview he has ever had with someone... yep this guy was tops....then he felt the heat on his neck when he noticed me looking at him. Ooops..he forgot he did, in fact interview me. He was so tickled with himself...but he was right. This guy was WAY better than me in the interview, but I am better in many other ways, so I am not worried!

Okay, I have a long day of laundry, TV watching and talking on the phone to get to, so I am out of here!


  1. Lol, your drive-through situation was really funny!
    I hope you enjoy your days off! :)

  2. So glad you finally got some time off. Rest and relax, honey. And lots of tv!!!
