Stupid Bitch Customer

Did Rachel Ray have a blurb about the PSP in her show today? I had some bitch of a customer in my store this afternoon going on and on about how she saw the handheld system on the Rachel Ray Show, and that she said the damn thing is capable of all sorts of outlandish shit it really isn't. When I told her so, she got super angry, stamped her foot, and left.

Should I expect more of these lobotomized soccer moms to come in looking for the Magical Gaming System that they know absolutely nothing about?

What is the name of the movie that basically has the entire world population depressed because no one has had a baby in a few decades? (Until an young african-american girl uncovers her secret pregnancy to very few people especially one man in particular, he does whatever he can to protect her from crazies. He was also one of the main characters in the movie.)

Saturday morning = multiple questions

1. I'm entertaining a book idea involving guardian angels and patron saints and God and all that jazz.

What/who do you think God's Voice sounds like? (If you're one of those non-believer types, have fun with this one!)

2. How long have you waited for a potential employer to call after you've dropped off an application?

3. It's really windy outside, and my internet is slow. Are the two related?

I hit my head really hard because I ran into a wall. Basically I ran through our hallway where there is a corner, and I turned around really fast to go back. And my face/arm slammed against the corner.

What's the last really stupid thing you did that resulted in injury/pain?

Am I going to get stupider?

ETA: Let me clarify: By asking the question whether or not I will get more stupid, I am not implying that I am already stupid. I'm sorry if that has offended anyone in any way.

i'm hoping my writing skills will more than make up for the voice kind of like kanye west

Do you wish you had a different tone or timbre in your voice?

If you listen to a couple a capella rap lines rapped fluid but languid, do I sound too nerdy that I'd end up being a nerdcore rapper on MySpace with no chance whatsoever of attracting listeners?

I'm a Tenor, and can get a pretty deep sounding falsetto, but it still never has the quality of timbre as a baritone like Tupac's. I covet his voice. I took singing lessons from an opera singer, and have been giving myself my own diction lessons to work my voice out as best as I can. I'm glad I inherited the German timbre and tone from my father and not something much worse.

My boyf does not know what to get me for Xmas. Should I ask him to take me bra and underwear shopping, even though I have more than enough of those?

If you use sponges regularly (say for dishes or cleaning), do you throw them out after a few uses and buy new ones all the time, or do you wash them somehow (dishwasher, washing machine, etc.) and reuse them until they fall apart?

So I have to wait til Sunday til I see my boyf. I am bored. Will someone come cuddle with me until then!? No sexy time though unless you are perhaps seanseansean.

Your waiter brings your check to the table, and you put out some cash to pay. The waiter picks up the cash, and asks "do you want change back?". Does this piss you off?

It really annoys me because it is the same as asking "Can I keep your change as my tip?" and waiters should not be begging for tips. The waiter should automatically bring back the correct change, and then the customer can decide how much to leave as a tip, which might be more or less than the change. If the customer volunteers "the rest is for you" that's different - but the waiter should not be asking.

What games are awesome?
What's the best thing about a Wii?
What's the worst thing about a Wii?
How much did you pay for your Wii and/or games?
Should I get a Wii with my tax check? I am a 28 y/o female and have a 3 y/o daughter. We don't have any gaming systems, and although I used to kick ass on Legend of Zelda and Castlevania, I haven't really played in a long time. The bowling game looks pretty cool.

Does anyone relate to this feeling?

I have a problem. Whenever someone doesn't like (usually in a romantic way) another because of how he/she looks, I feel a sting. It's not because I'm some selfless, caring creature or anything. I think I feel that way because it relates to me in some way. It's like, I'd imagine how hurtful that would be if someone felt that way about me. The thing is, I probably wouldn't feel that way if I know for sure it'll never happen to me. I'm sure it has happened in the past, and it will happen in the future. And the worse part is...I've been like that before: not being interested in someone romantically because of his physical attributes. I feel like cutting off my romantic life altogether. I don't want this to happen to me, but I do it to guys. I feel a cognitive dissonance (I think that's the right term).

I really need to take some medication but it lists drowsiness as a possible side effect. I was on it 4 years ago and haven't had any medication whatsoever since then, and I can't remember it making me drowsy originally but it's 11pm and my 8 month old is due to wake up in a few hours. I'm home alone with her so I'm afraid if it does make me drowsy I will sleep through her screaming. I NEED to take this medication, as I said, it's been 4 years since I last used any medications so it's obviously quite an emergency. If it does make me drowsy will I sleep through her screams? it's Stemazine by the way.

I'm trying to think of a movie. It's about a kid whose parents I think die or something. So he goes off to live with his uncles or something (I think there are two of them), who are either quirky or stupid or maybe even retarded or something and then at some point the kid mails his mom (? or some lady who is for some reason not taking care of him but concerned) some pancakes. And she's like "oh no he's becoming one of them". Also at some point I think they climb through a pipe?

Anyone have any idea what movie I am talking about? I am googling and just getting Uncle Buck. I don't think it's that. It was an early-mid 90s movie I think. idk
