WTF?! Friday

Hope my awesomely positive post puts everyone in great spirits for the weekend. Happy Friday!

I know everyone has heard enough about it but I can't believe people are defending the now former coach of Penn State and are angry about him getting fired, even protesting and turning to violence. If it were a murder he knew about and kept quite that could make him an accessory. I feel like people care more about their stupid football than about the innocence lost. It's also really upsetting that all this hoopla surrounding Joe Paterno has taken away from the real perpetrator and the true victims. WTF?!

I went to Subway for a sandwich and the guy at the counter asked me about my pregnancy. What gender the baby is, when I am due. Typical stuff. Then he asked me how old I am. I told him and he said he thought I was 16 or 17. I was in awe that he thought that and felt it was okay to say. Saying I look like a pregnant teenager makes me feel really self conscious and is offensive. He was clearly judging me the moment I walked in. I made sure I handed him my credit card with my left hand even though it felt awkward and I almost dropped it so he could see my engagement ring and wedding band. WTF though?!

 I was looking online for decor for the nursery and just so happened to find something on Ebay. I have never actually used the site so I created an account and placed a bid on the item I was interested in. The seller then contacted me saying that they didn't like the fact I was a new user and bid on their item. I was completely outraged and befuddled. Long story short I ended up not purchasing the item. I understand that no one should trust anyone online easily, especially when there's money involved but their suspicion was borderline paranoia. Really, what pleasure am I going to get out of holding out payment on a four dollar knickknack? Get it together crazy. WTF?!

Why is it so hard for just about every cashier to have a smile on their face or at least tell you your freaking total when checking out? I get it, you're miserable. Don't be rude to me when I'm polite and when I pay tell me what I owe! It's not hard. I know because I was a cashier before. I didn't love it but I was a good employee and only told people to shove it when they were rude to me first. (That's what good employee's do, right?) I know you encounter rude people all day but when someone is nice to you then attempt to make an effort. WTF?!

So true my dear...all of it. In the words of old people everywhere, "what is this world coming to!!" :)

At least there was a backwards compliment with that rude Subway guy. I'd love to look that young. :) :)

And don't get me started on the PSU scandal....

That would drive me nuts if someone assumed I was a pregnant teenager... which I KNOW they would!! And sorry about the Ebay business- that seriously doesn't make any sense to me at all..?? Well, either way, I hope you have a wonderful weekend, my friend! :)

I can't believe the guy at Subway! Crazy-ness! And the Ebay user is stupid too! Have a great weekend!

I was at the play area at the mall with my 2 oldest. A woman asked how old I was and when I told her she said, "oh good. I thought we had teen mom going on over here." And so what if we did???

Hope you're having a great weekend and not being checked out my rude cashiers. :)

I could totally see the subway thing happening to me when I get pregnant. I'm 24 but when I show my I.D. people say things like, "Yah...you definitely look 16". Which is SO annoying. I guess it's good I look young but I don't look THAT young. I definitely don't look like I'm in high school. Sometimes, I wish people would just shut up about age and keep their mouths quiet. Obviously this hits home for me. haha

Also, the cashier thing always bothers me too! Just fake it while your on the clock. :)

Oh my goodness, I totally agree!!! When people say things about "poor Joe Pa." my stomach about upchucks. And I totally know how you feel about people saying how young you look....drives me bananas! I can't believe how rude the Subway guy was!

People are stupid. About the Ebay thing, if the seller was concerned about who was going to buy the item from them, they shouldn't have placed it on the internet. -.- I also hate it when cashiers or anybody of the sort is rude. It's ridiculous.

I hope your weekend went well! :)

Completely agree about the Penn State scandal. Seriously everyone needs to worry more about the victims and what actually happened rather then this coaches "legacy". Seriously people- priorities! And wow that Subway guy was rude.

Rude employees are the worst. You go to get frozen yogurt and they act like they are doing you the biggest favor. Be nice yogurt employees. You get free yogurt and I have to pay.

Thanks for the follow. Stopping by to follow back. What a rude ebay seller! I sell stuff on ebay all the time to new users. Everyone has to start out somehow, and as long as they pay you for the item...... Wow, that is so crazy. Sorry to hear that happened to you.
