Hey, all 3 people reading this (and you know who you are!), my first blog host, aTOMic/Tom is up and running. Check it out!
Once you find yourself bitten by the BLOG bug, there is no going back! (Well, except for Twinnie who is much toooo busy and social to keep a blog, you know!) But for those of us who must chronicle their lives (even if 3 people read it), the bug is powerful!
The Hooty Chronicles
In other news, Madame Hoooooooty is being much nicer now that her butt has been sorely whooped upon by a Vermont native. Apparently, I am not that much of a northerner to make an impression on her but between Rich (East Jesus VT) and Ween (Brooklyn NY), she has straightened her butt out (for now).
Hooty Smackdown II took place on Monday and from what I understand, Rich gave it to her but good. Apparently, she blamed him for something when, in fact, it was her goooodest buddy AlBEEE who made the blunder. And not only did she blame the wrong person BUT she threw the customer email back in Rich’s box with the comment “I wash my hands of this” — now, as much as we like dumping icky crap on our co-workers (particularly ones we don’t love), it is in poor form to do this (if one wants to remain employed for a while).
So, in typical Northern fashion, Rich asked her exactly where she got the idea that it was he who said this to the customer (whatever it was that was wrong) and although she tried valiantly to worm her way out of it, alas, she could not. After his smackdown, Ween had a chat with babykins and said “it won’t help in getting along with your co-workers to point the finger at them. Especially when you point to the wrong person.”
Thus, she has been a tad bit nicer (not to me, of course) but the group that posesses a penis seems to be getting a bit more attention. Gotta love that girl. Fabio tells me she is very different out of work (as you recall, he was invited to her partayyyy) – very nice and has a normal group of friends. (I think Fabio was inebriated for most of that evening, if ya ask me. heheh)
Ice sucks … just in case you were wondering.
Hey there! Just stopped by via 100 things and had to say hello. I’m a ‘chapstick’ addict too – we need to stick together girl! How many do you have on the go? I have 4 (car, bedroom, handbag, desk) and I’m getting worse! Happy Friday anyway! Roo xx
Is this Hooty’s first job? Most of us have first jobs that teach us what not to do in a career. I know I did. My first “real” (full time) job was selling crap on commission for Montgomery Ward. As a shy person I wasn’t made any less shy by trying to sell lawn and garden stuff. I was terrible at it but so were we all; the pay was crappy, the commissions were an insult and I learned a valuable lesson that retail treats you like crap, so maybe being a civil servant wasn’t such a bad deal.
I suspect Hooty will come to this conclusion soon enough. Perhaps she can sell perfume at Hechts or something in her next job.
