An absolutely glorious Tuesday

Tuesday is essentially my only real day off. So I like to sleep in and lounge around the house. So yesterday I did just that...slept in until about 11:00 am. After I woke up I had to use the ladies room. So I preceeded to walk into the hallway when all of a sudden our house alarm went off.

Pause here and let me explain to you how abnoxious this alarm real might recall the noise that Jim Carrey makes in the well known flick "Dumb and Dumber". He calls it the "most annoying sound in the world" and yes it is just that. Ok so you have that sound in your head...multiply that by oh say a trillion and you have the noise that was completely surrounding me on this lovely Tuesday morning.

So it takes me about 5 seconds to figure out what the heck is going on and about 2 seconds to dash to the alarm pad and turn the dumb thing off. After which I am shaking like a leaf from sheer terror.

The security company called and made sure everything was ok and the guy on the phone didn't think it was funny that someone left the alarm on with someone in the house...I thought it was (well after my heart wasn't beating out of my chest) I am just glad that I didn't go "potty" (as Luke says) in the hallway.

Oh and on a lighter note Jess and I went to a kickboxing class last night and it was awesome!
Except that it kicked our butts instead of us kicking boxes...

Are you serious?

Ok I just got done working at Starbucks...lets just get one thing straight

Be nice to the Baristas when you go through the drive thru. Just because you are too lazy to get out of your car and use your legs. I have just a teency bit of understanding for those with children in the car. But everyone's probably faster to go inside anyways.

We DTO's (aka the people who try to take your order) have SO much to do. So it is imperitive that you know what you want and would it be too much to ask that you order slowly so the new people can put the right drink and modifiers into the computer. Oh and when they repeat the order back to you actually listen just so we didn't get anything wrong.

And if we do get something wrong I personally am sorry that we messed up. But getting angry only makes those with the aprons on frustrated. It slows things down and the people behind you get frustrated at us...

So what I am trying to say is that if you don't have "time" to sit in the line or don't appreciate the people who serve you the much needed "caffeine" fix...then don't bother coming in until you change your attitude. Oh and I am sorry if I have offended anyone I am just tired of the jerks that come through the drive thru on their cell phone and don't give us the time of day.
