Ok so I haven't yet posted the story of how it all happened. Let me begin...

10/23: Maryanne asked me to pick up for her a bottle of castor oil and orange juice, apparently she had read some info on-line from various sources about how castor oil speeds up labor if you're close to it. (she was a week away from her dd and if you're a pregnant woman you know that week must feel like a month) I didn't end up buying it for her but she got it on her own and took almost half the small brown bottle with orange juice to cut the oiliness. According to her it didn’t taste bad, just felt yucky. For all of you who don't know this, castor oil is a natural laxative and the contractions your stomach makes triggers labor somehow. I expected the laxative to take effect after a few hours, it only took about 45 minutes. She was in the bathroom for a while. Nothing else happened. I went to sleep at like 12, she woke me up at around 2:30 saying that something was wrong (those are the worst things to hear when you are waken up in the middle of the night) during the pregnancy we had a few false alarms and had gone to the emergency room just to be safe. I had read that castor oil was safe but I still got worried. I asked her what was wrong. She said Read more...Collapse )

To all of you that do not know this yet, there was a class action suit against KB Toys, therefore KB Toys is having a 30% sale on every item regardless of discounts on item already, of course you need to spend at least 30.00 to get the 30% discount. On top of that every Fisher Price Disney at item comes with an additional 20% discount on top of the other 30%. So we went over to the mall last night and got 3 toys for x-mas, one for a nephew, the other for Maryanne's little brother and one for Camron. This is what i got for her, I think it's pretty cute ;)

The other 2 toys were a TMNT (Raphael) and a toddler's Lego set.

At the mall we ate some Auntie Ann's pretzels, mmmm....

This is a conversation translated from Spanish to English.

Customer: "I sent a payment to you guys but it got sent back and I was wondering why."
Me: "What address did you send the payment to?"
Customer: "..."
Me: "What is the address you wrote on the envelope? What did the mail get returned as?"
Customer: "It says something like inssuficient address"
Customer: "....I bought a money order and just wrote my address on the envelope"
Me: "You have to put our address on the envelope too. Our address is..."

So yeah, this is what I do. haha

For all of you that don't know, I am a customer service rep for 2 third-party telephone companies.

So today I get one of those common calls from people claiming they have not made some calls (especially those that are out of state and expensive) to certain numbers. Usually I listen to their bitching and open up a ticket for further research, sometimes I actually get involved for shits and giggles to see what I find out. So I go ahead and call the number that has been called the most in Kissimee, FL. Mind you this guy is from NJ and has his wife on the phone with him. His story is that they have no relatives in FL and those calls are not from them. Anyhow, I call and this lady answers her cell phone, I introduce myself and explain I am calling from the telephone company and that I have (customer's name) on the other line who's trying to connect to her and she can't. (I do that just to see if the person I am calling knows that person, most of the time is a relative) The lady I called doesn't know who the customer is because I mentioned the person's wife. Then I mention the man's name and she's like, "who's this again?" and I introduce myself again. I explained the man doesn't know why this number is on his bill and so on. She goes and tells me he is a liar and well damn knows who she is, that he knows him and knows him well. At that point I knew where this was going, thaked the woman for her time and told the customer on the other line I couldn't verify the information because the person I had called was busy but I did call the number alright, at that point the man got quiet, but I didn't say anything else, I just said to call back Monday for further information. I wasn't about to tell him he was a liar! I did however noted the account with the info the lady with cell provided me with, so whomever calls back Monday will be getting the good news.

I thought I'd share this wonderful story with you all.

It's 8 PM, I'm still at work, it's almost time to go.
My daughter is due soon. Maryanne and I can't wait. What will she look like? How will she be? Even though I want to enjoy every minute of her being, I cannot wait until she can understand things, to communicate with words. Know what I mean?

Well guys reply back because I really wanna get back into this, or at least a bit. I will have the server back on eventually and will find time somehow to update quasi-often.

To infinity and beyond.
