Today was the best and worst day ever. The first call I got today was from a lady who was inquiring about the 3rd of July Fireworks at the track, here's how the conversation went:
Lady: I listened to your recording about the Fireworks, is this true? is this true? is this true?
Me: Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
Lady: Why are you doing them on the 3rd of July this year?
Me: Well, we don't want to compete with the other communities
Lady: WHAT?! (spinning head and throwing up everywhere) DON'T YOU DARE TELL ME THAT, EVERYONE COMES TO YOURS ANYWAYS, THIS IS RIDICULOUS, WHY WHY WHY?!
Me: Well, we did it last year and it worked well
Lady: NO YOU DIDN'T THIS IS THE FIRST YEAR AND I HATE IT AND YOU BETTER ADVERTISE OR MY FRIENDS WON'T KNOW. PS I HATE YOU
Me: well I'll let Paul Revere know that this weekend isn't good for you... biotch. (not really, I mumbled something about letting the people in charge know that she wanted it on the 4th...)
10 minutes later:
SAME LADY! ugh.
Her: What time is the last race
Me: around 8:30, I'm not completely sure
Her: well make an assessment.
Me: My assessment is 8:30...
Her: well is that when the race is over, or when it's starting, like is there going to be a race going on at 8:30?
Me: It's a 2 minute race... and if I'm just guessing...
Her: I don't know if I talked to you before, but, WHY ARE YOU DOING THE 4TH OF JULY FIREWORKS ON THE 3RD?! THIS IS RIDICULOUS, I HATE IT (EATING BABIES)
Me: well, actually, I asked around, and it has been on the 3rd for quite some time, in fact no one remembers it ever being on the 4th
Her: YOU'RE LYING TO ME, YOU'RE AN IDIOT, IT'S ALWAYS BEEN ON THE 4TH, BLA BLA BLA, BLARNEY BLARNEY. I'M HANGING UP NOW
So then I had a phone interview about a job I might take in New Orleans! It's just for the winter, and it's at a track called Fairgrounds. I'm not sure what job it will be, but basically, if I want it, I can have it! (More details to come... I'm just really tired)
Then I had an interview for the Direct Marketing job at AP. It went well, but basically Ken told me what I was expecting to hear, they want someone with more experience... experience with a budget (um... talk to a girl with credit card debt about a budget) and profit/loss crap (again with the credit cards sir...)
At lunch I bought a fan from Meier, and I was SO excited to put it together, so I got home, dropped everything, changed into the shortest shorts I have and a tank top because it's hella hot here... 100 degrees is what my Jeep says. So anyways, drop everything, take it out of the box, and HELLO! It's missing the stand part of it... so I cried some more and called my mom. PS did I mention I haven't slept in 3 days because it's SO HOT in my room.
So, I went to target because I had to get some other stuff- and I got a bunch of other stuff and no fan... they were picked over and I wasn't about to buy a $60 stainless steel fan.
So, I came home, made dinner, and went to Kmart... Dear weather, you can EAT MY SHORTS, because I found a fan and it's amazing. It's actually blowing on me right now. It's a good thing I didn't have to use my back up plan, which was to employ one of those guys selling tube socks on Division and Western to blow on me all night.
I'm ready for a restful night.
Truly yours forever,
