Business 101

Now, I don’t know much about business. I’ve never taken any business classes. But one thing I do know about business, you have to make a profit. To make profit, you have to have some kind of service or product that people want to give you money for. And when you sell this service or product, you have to sell it for more than you obtained or spent on it to make a profit. To stay in business, you must make a profit or get a billion dollar bailout from the government.

Now this seems pretty self explanatory. I imagine this is something you would learn on day one of Business 101. Which brings us to my story. Remember back when I talked about how stupid my co-workers are? Apparently, this concept has not penetrated their thick skulls.


So, there I am sitting at my desk, minding my own business. When I hear Co-worker X tell Co-Worker Z that he just sold a part above cost! At first, I’m like big deal. Isn’t that the point? So I did some digging, and found, lo and behold, he didn’t sell it above cost. Surprise surprise. I mean, we can’t actually expect to make money off our customers, right?

Potty 101

What is with people these days and not properly using he bathroom? Everyday, multiple times a day at work I go to the bathroom and here is toilet paper floating in the toilet. nasty. I don't wanna see your gross used toilet paper. I guess at least it's only toilet paper and no poop, but still I don't wanna see that. Also pretty much everyday at the gym, I have to try several stalls before finding an acceptable one. Several of the stalls either have toilet paper still floating or puddles on the seat or both. The other day there was a puddle bigger than a quarter on the seat with several drops around it. Gross! First I don't see how they got so much on the seat and then to just leave it there. I read customers suck on live journal and there are always stories of people smearing crap all over, people using aisles, trashcans, sinks, parking lots etc for bathroom. My sister used to work in a retail store and people would use the dressing rooms. What is wrong with people?!? And the people that do it to get back at a store for not having a public bathroom is just horrible. The people who make the policy of no public bathrooms are not the ones that have to clean up after you that's just sick and demented. I think every public bathroom should have to have the seat covers. Also people need to prove they can identify acceptable places to use the restroom to graduate elementary and again every couple years like when they renew drivers license or something.

Still Kickin

Hey everyone!!

I am still alive and kicking. I haven’t been in a blogging mood for a long time. I have lots I want to post, just never get around to it. And for some reason I feel I have to have my first post back on a Monday. So many a Monday would come and I not post so then I felt I’d have to wait til the next week and then that wouldn’t happen, so on and so forth. I have also had computer issues. Computers automatically do the update things, and they were causing my lappy to freeze, first if I wasn’t constantly using it then even if I was using it. The man has deleted all updates and set it to not update so hopefully it will continue working. It was driving me nuts not being able to use my lappy regularly.

So I will try to update and comment more.

In closing, here is a pic:

We're all mad here
