grande americano

sometimes it helps to be a regular customer… you get to know the baristas, so when you forget your wallet and become penny-less… you still get to enjoy your grande Americano to feed your caffeine addiction…

Thanks my buckies barista! ❤

The sky is not falling…

2011.09.02 § Leave a comment

The sky is not falling and the world is not going to explode – whether or not galaxies will be sucked into the Black Hole is another story.

Everything does not require a heart attack and you’re better off focusing on what matters, or better yet, generates income. Bosses that micro-manage and does not have any tricks up their sleeves should be more adequately attuned to the productivity for their colleagues (I say colleagues and not staff because they are the actual bread winners, the mules and little minions that gets the work done so You. Can. Sit. Your. Sorry. Fat. Ass. Down. And. Do Nothing!)

So if you are one of the unfortunates that must get your daily dose of power tripping and create inhumane working conditions for us folks, kindly please continue to halt efficiency, hold mind-numbing , time-wasting 2 hour meetings that circle around the same useless 5 min of material and shove food into your face. Remember… Round is a shape.

No, srs’ly STFU! And we wonder why we are in recession

Happy Friday =)

better end of the deal…

2011.08.30 § Leave a comment

so chef lui tells me whoever makes it home earlier “would [insert name] please wash the dishes; otherwise there won’t be anything to eat dinner with”… the problem is that it feels like a tornado/hurricane/some mega natural disater whipped thru the kitchen, debris and DB everywhere, and no one to clean up the rotting aftermath… think new orleans

moment’s later, while still on the phone my hun tells me that he needs to go to buckies to grab coffee cuz he’s falling asleep, can’t keep his eyes open, and offers to bring me some also… awwwww…

guess who ends up home earlier? ME! … who gets stuck with dishes? ME! … who gets to clean the grimmy compost rotting in the sink? ME! … such a lucky girl …

awhile later… baby comes home, coffee in hand… and kitchen is clean… i mean SPOTLESS!

i got my iced caramel machiatto and he gets a sparkling kitchen with clean dishes…so um… who got the better end of the deal today? HIM!!!

lol… conspiracy theory i tell you…

dick’s u-pick cherry farm… summerland, bc

2011.08.02 § Leave a comment

over the long weekend my friends and i headed to summerland, bc for a mini getaway (… like we do every year to someone warm and sunny)! this year we decided to explore some local wineries… on the last day, before we all headed back to the reality of working… we wanted to do a lil cherry picking…

the closest u-pick farm to us was dickinson famliy farm… the experience was NOT PLEASANT! and would NOT RECOMMEND this place!

i say this only because Hilter (ahem… i mean owner) was quite the champion when it comes to alienating his customers and making racist and condescending remarks… all of which unnecessary and down right rude! by definition a “u-pick”, is a farm where you pick what you like, how much you like, where you like, and you pay by weight in the end… these clowns that run this outfit expected the 5 of us to each climb a ladder… after explaining to them that we wanted 2 ladders to share amongst us, they glared at us and charged us $2/head extra to go in… fine whatever… not worth hassling of $2… basically the way they came across was that we were ripping them off…

while the cherries were juicy and plump (to be fair… i do give them that), yield was thinning where our ladders were situated… mon l’amie and i noticed that trees nearby also sported some really yummy cherries (that did not require us to climb 12ft and risk killing ourselves)… as we were happily picking them, Hilter came over and bickered at us for picking the low level cherries… we asked him to “recommend” us some better suited trees, he walked off… after shortly returning yelled at us for not following or listening to his orders… sorry buddy! last time i checked i did not work for you!!! In fact i’m here paying for your god-damn-mother-effing cherries which i’m laboring myself! bloody hell! anyways… still did not want to sour the experience for our friends, we followed to the tree Hilter took us to… unfortunately all the crops were 12 ft up in the air, thinning and were badly ripe / munch on by birds…

later, after a bucket full of cherries… we were heading back to join the rest of our friends… on the way back… again there were some pretty juicy cherries on the lower levels… so again, i picked a few… seriously Hitler is a control freak and really needs to get out more! Either he has had way too much cherries and it’s affecting his interpersonal skills or he is just pure racist… He basically told us that we don’t speak english and would not listen to him to stay away from the lower level cherries… I honestly do not understand why it is such a sin to pick those cherries… we are not in the garden of eden!!! honestly if it wasn’t because i didn’t want to ruin my buddies experiences i would have just thrown the cherries right at Hitler’s face and told him to shove it! where do all these uneducated ppl come from???

final verdict (out of 5 stars) : level of happiness = -5 | douche bag customer service (or lack there of) = +5 | wtf factor = +5 | racist = +5 | cherries juiciness = +4

would we return … HELL NO!!!

Boss drama

2011.07.15 § Leave a comment

if there is something i hate most… drama… people that stir shit up just for the sake of shit stirring… (sorry i don’t have a more eloquent way of putting this!)

there is nothing worse than to pretend you know what you are doing and drag everyone’s productivity down with you into the abyss…

apparently not everyone has professional etiquette of how to motivate a team and have a system in place before you start doing business.

my “new” boss is technically as vlo and i put it during our discussion today is…

fungus – useless, alot and annoying

disease – causes everyone around to to have internal bleeding and vomit blood

bbb – blah blah blah … i lot of noise coming out, but nothing constructive

meningitis – melts one’s brain

roadblock – roadblocking…

cheers, TGIF!
