Springtime in northern Wisconsin

Spring/summer has arrived. Last week it was high 80's for temperature, but this week it's a little cooler! The one thing is it's not rained enough for those of us who suffer from allergies! Pine dust is horrible and I suffer from that ailment! I have coughed for 5 days so far and no end in site as my airways are so irritated from the pine dust. UGH!!!!
Trees are blooming and everyone is in the planting a garden mood! WE are hesitant to plant, yet. We have been burned a few times and planted a little too early only the pay the price with a frost! But here's a photo of the beautiful crab tree in the back yard.

new study book

This is a really good book so far, but I'm only on Chapter 2. Ask me later.
Lady is growing so fast, everyday it seems she grows another inch or two. Of course, we have been told by 9 months, she should be full grown! Don't feel sorry for her, she had water in that dish, took 2 slurps, turn over the dish and ran around the yard with it her mouth! :D

Bible Study

Yep, I got a new Bible study book by Lisa Whittle. It's a book and study guide all in one! So far I like it. I'm only on chapter 2, but I will share more later. I had so much trouble being a young Christian back in the day, but this still has meaning as I don't want to become so compliant. Put my boots on , fight for truth and Christ! Blessings!

So stupid questions continue

I have had a few comments and lots

of laughs at the demo issues I shared with you all! So, I thought I would add a few more!
If for a few minutes you walk away from the demo station, people feel very free to help themselves to cut up a cake if that is what you are serving or put cheese on the crackers or get a handful of chips from the demo cart. It's amazing that people think just because they have shopped at this store all the time that its like they live there and feel so compelled to do these things. So, I learned very quickly to hide the items I was demoing.
People don't realize that they are on camera. So, we can go back and watch what they do at the demo stations. People have walked away with pizza cutters, knives(that we use for demos), spoons, and other items. Unbelievable!!
So, next time you are at Sam's club or Economart, watch other people and how they react around the demo stations. People tend to be greedy about food, unbelievable!

This and That

So, 2 weeks ago Lady got spayed, hallelujah!!Maybe some the hormones will quiet down and she can become a less energetic dog, maybe!!
I hope I didn't come across crabby about my life as a demo lady! It was fun, but long days! I had lots of ideas, but quite a few got shot down and that really sucked as I had spent many hours preparing the information! But whatever, it didn't happen, maybe that is why I got burned out! Since I have a different job at the store, I'm not on the floor very much and people still after not doing demos for 3 years, think I should be behind the counter doing them! No thank you!!!

idea for now

So, I was talking to a friend about my job and I should write a book about the years that I was a product demonstrator. I am so glad to have moved on from that job, it was fun the first 7 seven years, but the last 6 were painful and mundane! So, this idea popped into my head that I would share some of the weirdest things people either asked or said to me during those 13 years. So here we go:
1. What is it? Probably the number one question, but the problem was that it was pizza, REALLY, that's what you want to ask me??  Probably they wanted to know who's brand, so say that please, otherwise you sound really stupid!! Just sayin!
2. How long has this been out, is it fresh today?? Again, REALLY, How can frozen pizza be fresh??  Also, did you not just see me take this out of the oven?? Again, stupid!
3. After eating one piece of pizza, taking another, actually sneaking another piece, WE SEE YOU!! We see you sneaking another piece or 4, yes , one time a lady told me she was taking 8 pieces for her children, let me tell you, if she had children in the car, they would be 40 years old or older. Please don't lie or try to trick us!
4. This is a snack, not a meal, please don't stand here and eat the whole tray! It goes along with number 3
5. Please no double dipping, when we have chips or carrot sticks out with dip! Had to put up a sign every time to remind people, this isn't home, don't double dip! Again, REALLY!!!????
6. Please don't litter the store with the empty napkin or portion cup that held a carrot and dip. This isn't home and you need to clean up after yourself!
7. It's a sample, not a meal, move along!
8. Just quite saying stupid things to the demo person! Don't act like a jackass! Nobody likes it!
This is a small list of the stupid things people say to us! We are just people trying to make a living and have a little fun while doing it!
