WHAT???!!! I’ve been set up. Zoe, you told me there was more of Ray’s stash back there. Harumph. Well good thing this is the first of the month and all is stocked back up again.
Coffee and…Chicken in oyster sauce and a couple pork and shrimp spring rolls please. Thanks. Haven’t had any Chinese food this week and I’m starting to cramp up.
Scattered snow showers before noon, then a chance for flurries. Cloudy, with a high near 33.
Oh, Pennsy! We’re in J.R.’s neck of the woods. He’ll probably head out to parts unknown, but hopefully he’l be able to stop in a bit more.
Wonder how ole Lee’s doin? Cape Jim too.
Ulrich- They have Burger King’s and Chinese food in Germany? Wow! Almost like here but can’t understand what the people are saying. Well, now that I think about it, it IS just like here. Just kidding. It is funny though to hear of these similarities between other countries, especially European countries as we have a tendency to think you are all German and no other food, for instance, is there. And I know what you mean on the fast food prices. Same as here. You can’t necessarily eat cheaper there. Oh you can, but for a “meal” at say McDonald’s it costs, with a dessert, almost $8. Now that’s a bigger burger granted, but I’m not talking a snack, but a meal. At the Chinese buffet, my meal costs $9.70 after tax. If I drank water instead of Mr Pibb, then it would be less by about $1.50 or something like that. They have weird pricing. Point is, I can eat at a buffet and walk away stuffed for about a buck more. Not counting tip of course. That varies because you are right, there always seem to have at least one pretty one and weeeelll…the price of lunch usually goes up just a bit when she waits on you and smiles a lot.
And don’t get me started on other restaurants lunch menus. Fast food is just that…..fast. It’s not really much cheaper.
Galaxy- I hope things go well. In spite of the “reasoning”, I still think one minute is cheesey. Like I said before, there usually is a 5 minute or so window they don't pay anyway. Besides, how do they expect you to be at the time clock and at your w**k station ready to w**k at the same time. What, if you weren't at your w**k area because you were standing at the clock, would they complain cause you were a minute late? Sorry. I know you have no answer for that. Just thinking out loud.
Looks like I’ll stay home today until w**k tonight. I have several things that need done, some of which are in the trainroom. We’ll see.
Ya’ll have a good day, ya hear!!!!
