Apachie, the stickers were put on private cars. I understand that the owners of the cars (our coworkers) were upset about the stickers, but honestly, they're VERY easy to take off, especially within the first 24 hours of application. Also, I was more irritated that the angry coworkers came out and yelled at the new kids who had been ordered to put the stickers on (essentially) by the owner of the company. No. Not okay in my book. You go to the manager. If the manager has no idea what you're talking about, THEN you can confront the kids and threaten them with firing and police involvement all you want. As it was, the poor kids were terrified that they were going to lose their jobs for doing what they were told. I don't care if I get fired because I've worked there for more than six months, so I can collect unemployment.
Today was a sad day for me. My amazing Ariat Terrains, which have been my go-to boots for the last almost four years, finally gave up the ghost. They are separating right along the instep on the right shoe. The leather has actually separated about halfway along the instep. These boots have been with me through almost daily wear for nearly four years. They've seen trail riding, hiking, rock climbing, mud, water, mucking, working at the Girl Scout horse camp. Heck, I even wore them for two weeks straight at work when I fractured my ankle (thrown from a bat-crap crazy mare) and couldn't stand wearing the CAM boot any longer. I am going to retire my boots to solely riding/lessons until I can afford to replace them. :'(
On a lighter note...
Do any of you know of a website that describes how food ingredients taste and how they can be used? For example, I would love to try a dish with kumquats, but I don't know how they taste and don't want to buy them to try and then end up not liking them (waste of money). I don't necessarily want recipes. FWIW, I'm sure I could google this, but I'm search engine challenged, so...yeah...lol
Mandy, I'd love to ask for a raise, but this company doesn't give raises. I really wish I was joking about that, but they try to find ways to cut our pay as much as possible.
