Knowing my luck, I'd probably somehow managed to be red flagged or shadow banned from here too for violating some standards  ;D .

It is never too late to make amends or start afresh on few goals.  ;)

Is an orange called an orange because it's orange, or is orange orange because of the orange? Which came first, the fruit or the color?

Let's talk about the  :crazy: pizza. Pizza has a shape identity issue - pizza is circular, but in a square box, and served in triangles :pizza:

 :))  :))  :)) Oh that is the best thing ever. Plus I think it is working on its self there is pizza that is a rectangle in a longer rectangle box and shares its space with pasta.

There are things that are called pizza or variations of and they're not even pizza, but some Italian or Hispanic style recipes stuffed in a hallow bloated croissants or puffed patties, also known as calzones and stuffs  :P  :crazy:

It was a good day at church, minus the moment at one intersection where that police officer was giving MIXED manual hand traffic control signals  :-\  of telling the cars to make left turn (with his right pointing) and calling the oncoming traffic (with his left hand) - so we drove onward and he just stopped and said it was for "turning".  :idk: (I'm pro-police, but that was just ...)

My day today was good till I had to go get a new battery for the truck. Truck would not start without jumping it so needed new battery. My husband called the parts store before I went to tell them the year make and model of the truck. (it is a 1993 Chevy Silverado, That is important for the story) He told him what battery he wanted as well as told them to keep the old one so we don't pay the core price. As well as tell them that they will need to install it for me as I was going to be on my lunch and have never done it before, not the time to learn today. I get there and tell them that my husband had called and I guess they did not think it was a good idea to put the battery after my husband had called so man asked me the year make and model. I told him I did not know the year and that it was a Chevy Silverado and that is why my husband call ahead of time. Man does not go to check to see what the truck is and that is fine but told me that he could pull the trunk info with the plate number. He asked me to go take a picture of it me thinking it is weird but ok this is his job so I do as I'm asked. I come back with the picture and he enters the number. Then he tells me with the most confident as well as you are a dumb woman voice that my truck is not a Silverado it is a Chevy Cheyanne . I told him no it is not it is a Silverado that I am sure of. He then tells me again no it is not. So I go get my registration as well as call my husband and my husband tells him he is wrong my wife is right. He ran the VIN number and SURPISE it is a Silverado he goes with it but can tell he is not convinced I'm right and he is wrong. He hangs up with my husband and proceeds to ask me what battery I want (because he did not listen to my husband when he called a head of time) I tell him which one and remind him to take the core price off as he is keeping the old one. He looks at me and asks if I already pulled the battery out. I just look at him like really did I drive here without one when would I have pulled it. I tell him no that when my husband called and you stated that you can change it for me. He say well I don't know about that. I told him the truck will not start with out the new battery and I'm not leaving with out it installed. He tells me that it will depend on where the batt is. I tell him it is right up front cant miss it.

He then starts to follow me out and the all of a sudden turns around and say he will meet me out there in a few. He started to ring up other customers in the store even though there were two other people there working to help. after almost  mins he finally comes out and sets the batt down and say "oh yeah that's a Silverado" *hand to forehead*. Then walks over to another lady's car who showed up after I did and starts looking at her car I guess he thought I just had all day to wait on him. After helping her he then had to take something back in to the store.  mins later he is going to put the batt in for me.

As he is putting it in he is complaining because he is the only one that ever comes out to do things on peoples cars because he works with women and so he is the only one to do it. Braking up the wrong tree on that one. He made it sound like they were useless and incapable of doing their jobs because of their gender. After many more complaints and him telling me how cool his Ford Focus was he is done and truck starts and I leave. Something that should have taken me a half hour at most took and hour.

That was my fun for the day :) @Ko This is why I needed a real keyboard and not just my phone LOL

I did not reply earlier to any posts and went on about my daily routines first because THIS DESERVES dedicated reply, without interruptions of any leftover chores on my side!  :hi: I do not just scan and type quick liners and run when someone like you took time to tell me things (or talk to me!)

WOW!!! Was it even legal for him to run the plates? I've dazzled with PI works and it is never legal to run a plate, unless laws have changed since in some places or just an exception with certain town/city! VIN number on the other hand is reasonable as it tells you the make, model, pain colors, etc!

I could not believe he asked if you had the battery taken out! :facepalm: Should have sassed up and told him "Did not need one in the first place after the solar conversion upgrade".  :lmao: But wow! What a staff! Bad customer service right there! I mean 1% benefits of doubt, he was busy when talking to your husband and did not paid much attention BUT.... MAJOR BUT HE SHOULD NOT HAVE TREATED YOU THAT WAY WHEN IN-PERSON when you were giving him info he missed!

Greeting a customer was one thing, but helping that later customer first before attending to you, that WAS unprofessional of him too! Plus it's not like you were asking him to take the engine apart to replace something!

Male staffs like him are the ones giving the other males a bad reputation. I bet those female staffs can work more efficiently and even more professionally with great mechanical AND people skills, more than him! He could not even do a phone call that correctly!  :-X

And wow! imagine typing all this on my keyboard! It's like sound of tap tap taps (need a silent keyboard LOL)  :hug:

Gonna use the forum categories as blog topics too. Starting a blog, I'm not sure if I could keep writing and there's baggage of server security etc. Here, I've already worked on security and can keep maintain, keep posting, and sharing!  :idea:

Am I the only one who enjoys seeing all types of customers at work? the friendly or difficult ones? So much stories to hear from them, so much about different cultures or lifestyles to learn about, and so much personal and professional growth opportunities with people/empathic/sympathetic/flexible/understanding skills!  :)

There really IS such thing as a good stress. Sometimes, I can FEEL IT and it helps me motivated and inspired with self-talks! (the non- :crazy: self talks  ::)  )

This forum will be acting as an exhibit to remind the fun of a forum.  ;D (gotta learn to appreciate the past or the little things and things as they are, no greed, no unreasonable expectations, no hope of this getting super big!  :hi:  #content )
