Holy cow! Getting all this blogging stuff figured out was hard- is hard!
Driving through the big M today I was greeted by a very cheerful voice (Kathy, I have developed a relationship with her) saying "Good Morning would you like an iced coffee this morning?" To which I responded "Are you crazy? It's freezing out here, I'd like a hot coffee to pour over my feet- Please!" Instant laughter from her and a male. Pulling up to the window she tells me - "I have to change the message on my headset, now that it's colder!"
"Message?" I say thinking- what? All this time I have not really been greeted by a live person but rather an answering machine? I feel tricked, a little like the person being told "you're not my only girlfriend" well, maybe not that extreme! They fake it, folks! They fake it! It really is just a business.
So that girl who I thought all this time was on a personal crusade to make sure the new McDonald's cookies were a success? Every time I have heard her asking me or the car in front of me- "would you like some fresh baked cookies today? They're only three for a dollar?" It wasn't an effort on her part to up sell at all! I don't know if that is a good thing or a bad thing? I did think she was a little pushy- of course we all want those cookies, they're great- all warm and melty. It took a lot of effort for me to deny the chocolate chip craving and order the cinna- mini's instead! By the way did you know that cinnamon naturally stabilizes your blood sugar and reduces cravings throughout the day? It really does work. Honest. Have to go- am at work.
