No Discount For You

TGIF, my Friday anyway!
Two days off with no one asking for a discount!

Sometimes, well always, I think people have a lot of nerve asking for a discount. Especially at this time!!
If we gave a discount to every one who asked we'd be out of business in no time. Seriously do you ask for a discount at Wal Mart? No? Hmmm...
You seem to have no problem asking a small business though. You suck!

The other one that fucking gets me is, "I can get it online for cheaper"
Then go shop on line and get the fuck out. 😒
Thanks for supporting small business!

Of course these are the thoughts in my head and I would never completely vocalize them as I love my job too much to risk losing it. But if it was my business...

Actually my first thought is always, do you own your own business? You do, Oh can I get a discount?  No, hmmm. Or oh, you don't own a business. Well let me explain to you that the Turkish lamp you want a discount on cost thousands of dollars to ship here so you asking for a discount on a $125 lamp is a bit of a slap in the face. Actually next time someone asks if it is the best price I'll say no our best price to recover costs is actually $200 but you won't even pay what we're asking. So again just go away and don't let the door hit you on the way out or however that saying goes. 

Again only thoughts in my head, should I be worried. Lol!

I could ramble on about this topic forever but Leonard Cohen just came up on my playlist I must go!

As I walked home today it was quite windy, there were wonderful pink blossoms falling and dancing their way to the ground. Gathering on the sidewalks and the streets. 

Blossoms on the ground always make me smile as I always remember the time standing on a corner on Cook St in Victoria waiting for the light to change. It was a windy day and I randomly decided to grab a handful of blossoms and throw them into the wind. Right into the face of a passing cyclist! Oops! I should have looked left.  He turned and scowled and I gave one of those, OMG I'm sorry looks and smiled back. I thought to myself, dude I bet you never had a girl throw petals at you before. Lol!

I think if that happened today it would become,

Innocent toss of blossoms leads to random meeting of long lost siblings.  Click Next! Click, click, click. Haha!

Until next time

Needing an outlet!

 Holy crap I created this blog so long ago I can't remember, much like a lot of things in my life, so I've decided to have another go at it. 

With the way of the world right now we don't have as many person to person conversations over coffee or a drink like we are used to and I don't want to 'force' anyone to read my ramblings on Facebook so I will provide a link and if you choose to read my ramblings you choose to read my ramblings.

I like to ramble, hence the name of this blog, and a lot of the time I have no one to ramble to. Jeff's heard it all...Plus I tend to have those sudden moments where something reminds me of something, like that time at band camp, and I segue (sic) and he gets so confused 🤔  I think I may be rambling!


Until tomorrow my friends.
