Bit late in the day but....

My illustrious employers (thats spelt idiots) asked me to take them to the airport... I don't mind doing it, but they think timekeeping is for other people! I have always told them that one day I will laugh my head off when they cut it too fine. We think this already happened once but it was kept secret... well today it came at them full force They wasted time and we left for the airport late... oh dear they missed their flight and I got to go back and get them. three faces were there to be picked up!
What a cracking start to my week endthumbsup:

An old Cherokee told his grandson, "My son, there is a battle between two wolves inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies, & ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy, & truth." The boy thought about it, and asked "Grandfather, which wolf wins?" The old man quietly replied, "The one you feed"

Just figured out why I'm overweight ! The shampoo I use in the shower that runs down my body says "For extra volume and body". I'm going to start using "Fairy" dish soap. It says " Dissolves fat that is otherwise difficult to remove".

From a post on my Facebook page.

Yesterday was my second day as a concierge at one of our vendor hotels. The sales manager decided to "try me out." We are still supposed to sell tickets, but also do concierge duties as well. The first day pickings were slim since people were either checking out, or as they ch ecked in were more intent in getting into their rooms to recover from their travel or finding a place to have dinner, so no great shakes at all in the sales department. However, yesterday I was busy as a bee, setting a record for sales at that hotel AND satisfying the guests.

The upside is the pay rate is 9.00 an hour for a concierge vs 7.50 an hour as a ticket seller. Also I get to sit down AND I'M IN AC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The downside is that it's a longer day-clocked in at 755 and clocked out at 645. Also they only have a concierge at that hotel 2 days a week Fri and Sat, so it's back to the great outdoors for me the rest of the week.

Ah well, it's a start.

Me too, since the concierge position was what I applied for and interviewed for with the company last fall.
