Pay it forward and

The other day I was getting some goods from Target and the lady infront of me had a cart full of stuff she glanced over at me and said "Here let me buy your stuff that way you don't have to wait for me we can just ring it in,and you can go on your way."I must have stood there is shock because she said "Come on kid bring it over" This warmed my heart, a complete stranger wanted to do something nice for me...someone she did not even know.Who would of thought there is still good in this world,So I have decided to pay it forward don't know how or when but I will.:)


Oh my, Karma has struck me once again and it all happened because of that dang bedroom set from RC Willey's which only took two months and two weeks to finally get. But oh I love it! But oh how long it took to get here! first there were two vital parts missing from the frame, when I asked the ware house man about it he said "Can't you just put it together without it" "No sir I cannot, you see without those pieces my mattress will fall right though” little ticked but moving on another week passed the part was not there then it was back ordered, then it was not even made yet, then the other pieces of the set were MIA. Anger over took me and with encouragement from friends to call and complain I did just that. The conversation went a little something like this
RC Willey Customer Service: Hello how may I help you?
Me: How are you going to help me? Here is how you are going to help me you are either going to give me something or give me a percent off of something or work your little RC Willey magic and do something to make me a happy customer because I am really close to not being a customer ever again! I continued on with my sad sad story with some anger mixed in I went on for a while but I was pretty unhappy with the sitch.
RWCS: Oh ok ok mam let me get your number and I can look up your account and see what I can do
Me: proceed to give my number
RWCS: ok got your account..wait Amy? Amy Hansen? Is that you?
Me: heart racing all the mean things I just said flooding back into my mind! Who could I possible know that works in the customer service????
Me: uh… Yes that’s me...?
RWCS: It's me Ryan ...Your home teacher
Me: Good Gravy! Heart sinks! Out of all people it had to be Ryan one of the nicest people I have ever met. And my home teacher none the less!
Me: oh Ryan I am so sorry I didn't know it was you? (Not like I should have treated any customer service person that way)..rambles
I just wanted to hang up and crawl in a deep deep corner and never come out!
Ryan: Hey no worries that is what I am here for
He was super nice and ended the conversation with well as your home teacher is there anything I can do for you?
Me: No I think my complaint about covers it...

*Then the dreaded eye contact that following Sunday I gave a shy half wave as I had my head slightly down, he just smiled big and gave a wink. Thank goodness for forgiving people.

...That I am the Favorite Aunt.If you look really closely past the hearts and scribbles you will find a hidden message on that poster that says "We love you aunt AMY" finally I have done it! After many years of coaxing, puzzles, treats, whispering encouragement to vote for me.I have won them over Who knew that baby frosties would be the key to this? Frosties and good ol' prank calling family members on a friday night is what I credit my award to."I would like to thank all the little people who made this possible" -Oh wait it's only little people who voted for me. None the less you can congradulate via e-mail or in person(fake chuckles)

The runner ups:

* Sorry better luck next year :)

Pet Peeve!

Irritation…. I am fairly easy going but if there is one thing I cannot stand that is gum chewing! Oh how I despise it! The loud chewing popping un sticking from your mouth noises…noises…noises… Or any open mouth chewing for that matter, gum especially though .seriously people if you cannot chew your gum like a human being you should not be allowed to have any, Is gum really that hard to maintain in your mouth that you have to open your wide jaw and, swish it around and chomp down on it like a tough piece of steak? How about trying a half a piece or maybe even a 4th? Just try it! I cannot even concentrate or focus when someone is chewing my irritation level rises until I’m close to exploding. While I am on a tangent another peeve is not saying a word correctly now I’m no grammar police but I’m no fool either and I am smart enough to know if I don’t know a word or it’s context I will not use it. Such as “hanged” is not a word It is either Hung or hang no such thing as hanged! “beabble to” is two separate words “BE ABLE” sorry for the rant but now you know if you ever wanted to bug me all you would have to do is hanged out with me and snap that gum.

“I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you
I got my mind set on you

But it's gonna take money
A whole lotta spending money
Its gonne take plenty of money
To do it right child

Its gonna take time
A whole lot of precious time
Its gonna take patience and time, ummm
To do it, to do it, to do it, to do it, to do it,
To do it right child

I got my mind set on you

And this time I know it's for real
The feelings that I feel
I know if I put my mind to it
I know that I really can do it

I got my mind set on you
Set on you
I got my mind set on you
Set on you”....

That's right ya'all! I'm a wil' CAT! oh boy what have I gotten myself into??? I heard this song last night and that pretty much sums it up yikes! But seriously.. I'm excited I just watched my first two hour online lecture and actually loved it! I have missed learning so much! I know in about a month I probably won't be saying that but, I really am happy to be able to go to school finally ! and it's going to be hard I can tell but if I didn't start all the things that were going to be hard I wouldn't have accomplished anything in my life.Here are just a few I thought I would never accomplish :

Learned how to ride a bike
pulled out my first loose tooth with no tears
learned to tie my shoes
Got a job at 15
bought my first car at 16
Got a boyfriend and a kiss at 16
passed the boards and graduated cosmetology
learned how to drive stick
make the volleyball team
Go to Peru
pass boards to be an instructor
Have my own clientel
Master monoply
learn to sew

I think the older I get the more I understand what I am capable of and that if I put my mind to something I can do it! watch out world here I come!
