Special Delievery

Please pass your assignments to the person on the left and than hand those back one person. Ok. Everyone have someone else homework? Good. Commence with the reading of your weekly Mama Kat assignment.

The Prompts:
1.) Describe something someone has done to make you feel special.

(inspired by Le Poppy Design)

2.)Name your current addiction...we can get through this together.
(inspired by Lula

3.) What have you been busy doing that's keeping you from updating your blog? How hard is it for you to get back into the swing of blogging when you take time off?
(inspired by Sera)

4.) Write a letter.
(inspired by eyegirl)

5.) Where would you like to be?
(inspired by T.J.)


Okay.
1.) no clue. I haven't felt special in a while. Not that it's bad. I'm not feeling forgotten or anything. Well you know what La Pixi tagged me and that made me feel special. and I'll be doing that post next week. hold me to it everyone!

2.) Rita's Italian Ice. Ahhh I love it. nothing screams summer like some Coconut ice from Rita's. I only need one more punch on my card to get my free treat!!!

3.) I haven't been doing anything. Mainly because I don't have much of a life outside of bloggy world. I work. watch tv. Sleep. and repeat. I'm working on this. I do know that after I've been away for the weekend it's hard to catch up on what I wanted to remember to blog about. WOW that didn't make any sense. sorry. I have been working on my 200th post this week. It's a four part post you should check it out here.

5.) this was take ONE of my 4 part 200th post.

So that leaves
4.) write a letter.


To whom it may concern:

I'm not sure why you feel the need to look at me like a deer in the headlights. I'm not sure why you think I MUST be the person you approach because I was the only one who looked up when the door clicked open. If you had any sense you would know that look didn't mean "please approach me with all questions as I am the helpful friendly person who wants to make all your dreams come true," and that it really meant back slowly out the door and I wont hurt you. Before entering the building THINK about why you are here. Gather your thoughts, as lonely and scared as they are inside that empty head, and please try to reduce the amount of times you say "ahhh", as it's rather annoying. If all else fails please return home and rough draft out an explanation of why you have come to my office today. I don't know why. I wont guess why. I'm not a dentist, so I wont be pulling it out of you physically.

If you have come for some reason other than to place a "Celebration" announcement , which the sign very clearly advertises over my head, DO NOT come to my counter. Do not ask me for an application. Although I do agree that a job in this economy is something to CELEBRATE that is not what I handle. I also do not handle stories about your child's soccer game, 5 generation photos, wet newspaper complaints, bill disputes, puppies for sale, homes for rent, name changes, or the MAIL. For most of those things you will want to check in with the RECEPTIONIST. The nice lady with the sign over her head that very CLEARLY says RECEPTIONIST. Yes it is just that easy. We aren't trying to TRICK you. This isn't How We Do it, I don't have a hidden camera in my bra. We really aren't misleading you. Yes that's right the women with the CLASSIFIED sign over her head, she is who you see about homes for rent and puppies for sale. See you can figure it out. When in doubt please see the RECEPTIONIST.

But I swear to (insert icon here) if any of you ask me one more time for an application WHILE standing directly next to the "SEE RECEPTIONIST FOR APPLICATIONS" sign we have placed next to the desk, that is clearly labeled CELEBRATIONS, I'm going to direct you to the last stall in the men's room at the McDonald's across the way. Because really, come on people.
Thank you
NOT THE RECEPTIONIST

Rita's water ice makes me whoozy with delight. I can't get enough. Sadly.... : ). Let me know if you find a support group because I need to join too.

Dan said...

I can't comment on Rita's water ice - I've never had one. That is what happens when you grow up on the wrong side of the tracks. {*grin*}

Now is it you I get the job application from? {*grin*}

Love the letter. It doesn't matter where you work, if you are dealing with the public I swear they do not read signs. It's unbelievable. Also, people walk in looking totally lost, like they have no idea where they are or what they are supposed to be doing there. Crazy. Oh and could I get an application, please?

Kitty said...

ahhhh the public... what a bunch of idiots!! maybe I'll write you a letter tomorrow...

The Crazy Coxes said...

Thanks for the blog visit!

I love your letter and can I get an application and turn in my used car ad to you??? ;)

La Pixie said...

LOL, amen. Im not a receptionist, either, but some people seem to ignore common sense and ask me stupid questions.

Melissa said...

Gosh, people just don't get it!!!! You just must look so "welcoming" that they come right to you!! :)

Kiki (G.G.) said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I enjoyed all your prompts. There is a Rita's here in town. We haven't tried it yet. Is it THAT good? Take care.
