    I have decided to call work and quit tomorrow. It’s not worth it being bullied all the time and hearing transphobic and racist jokes. I have decided to just move on from this negative situation, and try to look […]

    • Good luck with your job. Rise above the shallow people. They are but stepping stones on your journey. Have you tried earning through writing? There are numerous places you can try writing for online.

      • Thank you. I have not tried earning through writing, but maybe I could? I don’t exactly know if my writing is good enough however.

    • Have you seen some of the writing out there? The bar has been lowered so far down it’s like a doorstep now. You wont know until you try. Dont think about it, just write and submit. Even if you do get some rejections, and you may in the early stages, once you start you are only developing and growing your ‘writing muscle’ and experience. Plus, you have all of us ‘thoughtsters’ here who have your back! 🙂

    So this blog was supposed to be about silly customers and light hearted stories. Instead I am here to vent about something else. Today at work, I left because of a nervous breakdown where I was shaking and could […]

    So life has changed a lot, but not a lot at the same time. For the longest time, I had trouble holding down a job. I also got diagnosed with bi polar disorder and PTSD. I have been out of work since January of […]

    • Hi Becky, and welcome back again.

      We love a good read, so write away!

    • Looking forward to reading whatever you care to share. Writing is a drug, better than Facebook and social media and remember, every word you write and post makes you a Published Author!! Congratulations – you are now a Writer! Add that to your resume. 🙂

      • Thank you! That is a good way of looking at it 🙂 and I agree writing can certainly be addictive.

    • Just be careful. With the way social media can be, saying the wrong things about work, whether regarding employees or customers, can get one fired.

    So my name is Rebecca… and I am back on thoughts. I haven’t been on here in awhile and I was just able to start my new password and log in. This blog will become an anecdote place for me about my job. I […]

    You met her and fell in love with her instantly,

    She whispered in your ear, Come with me!

    You loved […]

    • Harsh. Wow, sounds hard to deal with … I haven’t seen meth take someone, but I have seen heroin take someone away .. My sympathies.

    • i think its basically the same, drugs are terrible and they tear your life apart. thanks for reading my post!

    • Drugs relieve the pain that someone is feeling …. so I wonder if it is the drugs or the pain that one feels that drives them to the drug that we should be concerned with?

      • It might be the pain, but I’m writing about the other side, we’ve all been through our own destruction,but at the end of the day, it’s our strength that picks some of us up. Others just get lost in the drug. It’s whats more important in your life.

    • I’ve abused alcohol in my youth, but I was never lost; so, I may not be able to completely understand. But, my daughter has been there and in some ways it would have been easier if I had the problem, maybe. Who knows. Good luck on your journey. Do you have a passion in your life?

    My spooky little sister has been bugging me to watch these stories. If you remember….she is the Queen of Spooky Town and if she is saying these are scary I 1000% believe her. She texted the other night after […]

    • Ok….so I was wrong. You can not watch it on Youtube…(I think) My sister told me she watched them on Amazon Prime and rented them. I don’t know when I will get to watching the series….but I will. I just finished “Expedition Bigfoot” on Discovery +. And unless anyone else here is somewhat a believer I am not going to share my findings 🧐

    • Boy oh boy was I WRONG! This is the wrong movie. The correct movie is called “Backwell Ghost” and there are 5 episodes. We watched the first one and I was sooooo disappointed. VERY VERY disappointed. Granted I always make efforts to debunk everything so I debunked scenes as I watched the movie. MAYBE if I went in not thinking about that I might have been scared. 👎
      My little sister asked us to just watch one more before we give up on this….so we said we will watch it tomorrow.

    • Are you sure you’re sure this time?

    • There are lots of these type movies and series around. It is funny how I react with fear one time, and the next time something just as scary seeming on the surface doesn’t even made me gasp once. I don’t usually chose to watch things that are supposed be scary thought, most of the time.

  • Today I came to the conclusion

    that all the tears we cried as a child,

    were trial runs for our future.

    The disappointments we thought were life ending as children,

    were test runs for all the pain we […]

      • Thank you for reading my first post!

        • I still want to respond to your post …but have been off in another world these last few weeks I hope you don’t mind but I am going to attempt to move this post back to the top later so I can get to a response. I think….what you said here is so true and important for others to see.

    If any one knows me they know I absolutely love DIY projects 🛠 and watching shows like this. I think because of the Covid slow down of new shows over here some of our channels are showing older UK shows. WHICH ar […]

    • I love, love, love shows like this.
      So interesting! I would buy up a Chateau like this in a heartbeat if I could. Reminds me of some of the pictures my dad’s godmother in Switzerland used to send.

      I also love watching Fixer Upper, Joanna and Chip. Tiny Houses. They truly amaze me!

      • YES…..I have to monitor how many shows I get into because they are addicting. AND…there are so many shows like this out there.
        I think from what I saw…they have lived there a few years and still have not got to half the rooms. Renovating them that is.

        • They really are very addicting.
          It’s been quite easy for me to get hooked on them last year. The company I work for has had all 150 of us working remotely, so I turn the TV on for noise, and of course, end up watching while doing tasks.

          I can’t even imagine renovating that many rooms. That is a LOT!!!

          • You got to work from home? Thank goodness for that. Being able to keep working through this pandemic. I would be horrible at it. I see those commercials where people are in pajama bottoms and nice tops doing conference calls. I know myself…..I would probably start watching soap operas all day and actually getting some work done at midnight ☺️
            YES….45 rooms in this Chateau. I definitely would have to marry a Journeyman to do all this work. You should start watching the show…..this man could do everything. He is ex military and a chef. He also is a trained gardener I think…he just knows it all. And she is so cute. She is so talented with design and unique ideas. And to do all of this with small children….AMAZING.

    • This is quite a lengthy documentary series which first began airing in June 2016.
      It has 7 seasons, and 32 episodes in all.
      So there’s much to see if you want to watch the entire series.

      There are several DIY shows which come and go in the UK and one of the stand-out programs is called “Grand Designs” – a program which follows the construction of a house from foundations to the roof. It may sound ordinary but it really isn’t.

    • Are you serious?
      I can’t wait for them to release more Chateau seasons.
      We also have MANY shows like this. But I was drawn to the Chateau because of the amazing castle like home….and the beautiful couple doing it all.

    • Someone remodeled the big house (Chateau) which is not my thing at all. I prefer getting an apartment as is, and not having to worry about it. Oh maybe pick out a picture or two. LOL This somehow brings to mind an interview I saw part of earlier today of Fran Lebowitz who emphasised that she is lazy. She got one bad job after another when she first moved to New York at 18, and finally just realized she didnt’ wanna work, period.

      That’s sort of me.

      • I kind of get this. I think we feel LAZY when its something we really are not passionate about. I never had to do a remodel….and I probably won’t ever. But I love the idea of it…I love how creative some people can get over it. My fun is designing a room. But….it is also draining too.
        I sometimes just want to hire a decorator to come and decorate every room in my house because I can never make my mind up. I can spend months debating over a chair…..and once I decide on the model….add a few more months on picking a color. And add a few more months after that for picking the fabric/texture. ITS HORRIBLE. But…. once I get going I am ok.

        Yeah… are an issue with me too. Because I only want to hang my own art work. But I don’t because I want to paint in a color scheme I decide on for the room. And ….and….and… doesn’t end you see. 😔

    My sister “Queen of Horror” sent this to me earlier today and I didn’t watch it at the time because I wasn’t in the mood to watch a horror scene. But she assured me it was different. So….I just watched it. […]

    • There’s much one can read into this film – allegory or metaphor, but I wouldn’t consider it a horror film. 11 people all sat around a table feasting on what will become their last supper. The biblical last supper was attended by Jesus and his 12 disciples. Biblical connotations?

      The diners’ appear to be eating several endangered species with gusto, and have no moral compunction over the terrible consequences such attitudes will ultimately cause. So Mankind sinks under the weight of his own sins – this being gluttony, and again, another biblical reference is exposed. In a visual metaphor we see the diners’ and their table drop to the lower floor. . .are there no limits that mankind will sink to for momentary satisfaction?

      Maybe they are in purgatory forced to repeat their past sins before ascending to heaven?

      The script writer definitely had something in mind when this was written, and even to the casual viewer it is clear that there is so much more going on here then what is seen on the surface. It’s the insatiable appetite – primarily – the need to use up all the Earth’s resources rather than protect them. Mankind is descending rather than ascending as He should be.

      There is more, but I could go on forever.

      • After reading your response, I have to say my first reaction is “why didn’t I take it any deeper”. I seem to tend to be so literal about things like this. A group of people eating and falling through several floors, is just people eating while the floor falls out from under them…and I miss any “allegory” that might be there.

        Suspect you are right, don’t doubt it for a minute. I just don’t think in those terms.

        • I might have done the same thing as you….but I was asked my opinion of the movie so I had to look at it from as many angles as possible. My sister can get into some deeper discussions. So I have to “try” to dive as deep too. ☺️

    • I think you hit all areas that we discussed over this. Well….the thoughts the people in the group brought up to her and she shared with me. And I just realized DoDo bird me didn’t post my view. I thought for sure Gluttony ….that was the only thing I saw. But she brought up all the ideas she was discussing with other people….which was along the lines of what you wrote. Your very observant Jules.
      I also felt….this short film was not “Horror” unless of course you are a devout religious being 🙃 It is labeled Horror which is why I didnt watch it right away. So again….agree with Jules on this.
      But I also felt it was a nicely made short film.

      I started watching a show which distracted me from posting my view here last night. I can’t stand getting caught up in a series. 😁

    • Ok, I am going to respond without reading what you said so that you can get the closest thing to a “fresh” viewpoint as possible.

      First, I was wondering what the heck was going on. These intense people were really dedicated to eating whatever that was. Then the food stuff bothered me. It looked like they were eating baby chickens or something..I mean in the egg chickens, unhatched chickens, except they were fairly big so what were they really?!!

      Then as time went on, my attention went from “what the heck are they eating” to when is the next floor going to give way, and why didn’t these crazy people just start out on the ground floor in the first place.

      I think it ended up being more perplexing and sort of funny rather than “horror.”

      • YES…not horror in the sense that we thought. But I imagine a religious person could see the horror in it if they see the “Gluttony” and the “descending” floors.

        • Yeah, I think I would be pretty “horrorified” if the floors kept giving way. I wouldn’t be really happy for even one to give way.

    I wish I could hand them all a fluffy pillow & a cup of hot tea 🍵

    • All this for one moment of national insanity.

      • Yes! We could have had this on the “day of insanity” but some people in the White House didn’t think it would “look” good.

    • And a warm blanket. Bless each and every one of them. I heard yesterday that at least 20,000 National Guard members are expected to be in Washington D.C. for President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, which is roughly four times more than the amount of troops currently in Afghanistan and Iraq combined.

      • Uh huh… sister has been moved to a smaller base and smaller living quarters in Afghanistan since bases have been closing over there.
        Just seeing these soldiers sleeping there to keep everyone safe gave me such a feeling of good and warmth.

    • Are these the National Guard gathered in the Capitol to keep our Congresspersons safe? If so, give ’em a blanket and pillow for me. 🙂
