Please Welcome 'Baby Lemonade'!

My Car came in....Finally! After selling my car and being without a car for over a year....renting a car when needed......walking everywhere....taking cabs......I ordered this car over 4 months ago and Now it finally arrived!! A Fully Loaded Yellow 2013 Chevy Spark that I paid in Full yesterday!! I am the 1st one ....and as of now the Only person in California that has a Yellow Spark. It cost just under 19grand. I never wrote a check for that much in my life, I was a bit nervous. Now my bank account is back to a slim sum, but it is well worth it. Ain`t She Cute? I named her 'Baby Lemonade'!!|_GM+Chevy+Retention-X9223686_|_GI-RTN-Chevy-Spark-BP-SN-Exact_|_Spark+2013_|_2013%20chevy%20spark

The Sushi Guy & The Homeless Dog Lady

Next door to my work there is a Sushi Place. The married owner is a bit eccentric. He has his quirks. (....don`t we all? But it is my blog, so I am calling them out -ha!) He always complains about the 'snail trails' on the sidewalk. Not real snail trails, but the trails coming from leaking trash bags when anyone changes out the trash cans and carries the trash bags to the main trash bin. He uses our place to have FedEx drop off his packages, his workers drop off keys, etc....all and all not a big deal, just setting up for the main scene.
 There is this homeless woman with a small dog that comes around. She is about 47 years old. She doesn`t look that bad. She is thin, long brown straight hair with bangs. She s a bit 'sketchy', talks a bit to much, sometimes doesn`t make a lot a sense, always full of drama and telling people everything about her.....almost trying a bit to hard to have people like her but in a passive aggressive way.
 One day I had a big Fluff and Fold order to get out of dryer, start folding and get ready for my customer before closing. The homeless lady had her stuff on the special table we use. I kindly told her that I will be needing that table soon, if she could please to another open table....she was a bit puzzled, but she moved to another table. It came time for me to remove the clothes from dryer, all the carts were being used, so I just had to carry the clothes by hand and put on the table. I noticed she had put a few things on the table and just went into the bathroom to freshen up. My hands were full, so I threw my customer`s clothes on the table and moved her few items to the side, so they wouldn`t mix with my order. By then she came out of the restroom, saw her stuff moved and flew into a yelling, cussing, rage. Calling me rude and that she was going to talk to my boss to get me fired. I tried to explain but she wasn`t hearing it. Whatever, I continued to fold my customer`s order and she left. Well, I thought she left.
 The homeless lady actually went next door. Seems the owner there took a liking to her and invited her there for some dinner and a few beers. When she came out of the Sushi place, she was a bit drunk, saw my boss and proceeded to tell him that I was rude to her and I needed to be fired. Thankfully my boss is a wise man. He smelled beer on her breath and noticed how irrational she was being and told her 'sorry, but I have a hard time believing that'. She was pissed and got into the passenger side of the married Sushi owners car!
 There for awhile we would see The Homeless Lady and the Married Sushi owner together. She would either be in the passenger side of his car, he would carry in her laundry for her, pick her up when she was done and at times we even saw her driving his BMW!

 One day I had to take out the trash, so I went to unlock the door that all the buildings in our complex of businesses use to take the trash to the main dumpster. I opened the door and was surprised to see our Homeless Lady head on the ground, I almost hit her with the door as I opened it. She was in a sleeping bag inside the little hallway to the Dumpster! The only way she could get in there, would be if she had a key from one of buildings, like the Sushi Building. I just left the trash outside the door and went back to work. I reported it to my boss, who was not happy. I found out from some of the other girls that work here that the same thing happened to them. They were uncomfortable about it and called the police. The homeless lady told the police that the Owner of the sushi place gave her a key, that it was his private property (which is a lie) and it was okay. The police believed her, that it was the Sushi Owner`s private property, left and didn`t do anything about it.
 The homeless lady didn`t know it was the girls that worked here that called the police. She thinks it was one of the other business people. She came in to do her laundry and was complaining on how the police were harassing her. As she was doing her laundry, she was talking about her and The Sushi Owner. She said one day she was sleeping on the street and recognized him, they went to High School together. At first, she was to embarrassed to say anything, but after a few times of running into him, she decided to come up to him and say hi. I guess he was pleasantly surprised to see her. Since then, he has taken her on his boat, gives her food & drink at his Sushi place, drives her here and there, lets her drive his car, he even let her sleep in his work van......until his van got infested with bed bugs and he lets her sleep in our locked hallway to the dumpster!(.....what a Knight in Shiny Armor....swoon!) She says that him and his wife do not sleep in the same bed anymore and that she is in love with him!
 She still comes around, doing her laundry, getting cleaned up in our bathroom, talking to all our customers about stuff.......most of the customers enjoy talking to her......she will spend pretty much all day here....until the Sushi owner comes to pick her up. She now says hi to me, she makes a point of saying something to me and trying to be nice. So far no problems, but she has that personality that you know that she can snap at anytime, so I am usually casually on-guard.

 She is in here right now, doing a ton of laundry, she has been here for most of the day. She is making friends, talking to everyone like it is a social club. She is saying she is in love with another man. She is dancing around, singing to the music on the radio. She apologizes, she says she had a beer....but protest she did not drink it here. She says she knows that Fred my boss wouldn`t like it. Then she laughs and says, 'you know I once had a vibrator named Fred'! She is showing me a bunch of cute clothes that she says she bought for a quarter each. She tells me the name of the store, but I will never go, it would be to dangerous for me.....I can barely get out of the 99c store without spending $200- as it is! 

Stay tuned....I know there will be more to add to this gotta love small towns!  

P.S. Forgot to mention, The Homeless Lady has a Little cute Dog that she had for 2years.....The dog is homeless with her. In private, she yells at the dog - In public, she uses the Dog for attention.  

UPDATE: Jan. 31st 2013

know she has been homeless for over 2yrs at least.....she complains that her mother don`t help her. She seems able enuff for some sort of job. Besides, if he really cared for her, he would set her up in a shelter or program....instead of allowing her to sleep in his trash. Oh and no worries....she shares her story all the time. It is always some one else`s fault....never hers. I guess I should have added that in my note. So much to tell...and everyday, there is more. Oh and BTW: He is he is cheating on his wife.
 They are both here right now, arguing, making up, kissing....going into bathroom out of bathroom......she just made a big mess everywhere....I have to clean up....clogged sink.....paper towels everywhere.....our coin cups missing......oh and she is telling everyone she has scabies!

Teddy Bear Lady

at work - and there is a lady in here that is talking to herself, making noises and looks exactly like the lady in the Movie The Labyrinth....the one that talks to herself and asked Jennifer if she is looking for her Teddy Bear......

I am probably the Only person that does NOT Like Tosh.O - however I never liked Candid Camera, Hidden Camera, What would you do, Punk`d, Scare Tatics, Betty White 'We not going to Take it' or any prank type of show - to me, it is mean - if you try to scare me, I will punch you dead....and if you are a Ghost...when I am dead, I will hunt you down and torture you in the yes....I hate Scary Movies to!!

You know you are getting old when.....

Last Night my Hubby, Evil Vic and a few of our friends go to a Rock Concert in LA -They get Sloppy Drunk, Slam in Mosh Pit, have Wild time = Come home Fine ......2day Sober Vic trips on his Furniture at home = in ER, His Wrist, Fingers & both Knees injured!!! CLASSIC!!!

The Laundromat Therapist: Pepper Spray

A guy comes into my work - having fight on phone with his girlfriend....Loudly.....tells her over and over that he swears that he did not cheat on her and why did she have to pepper spray him - he has a clothing bag with him - he goes to change his clothes - comes out and washes the clothes he was wearing - then goes to sink to wash his face - he asks me if his face is red - I tell him he looks ok - he proceeds to tell me about how his chick is drunk and when she drinks, she always thinks he is cheating - and this time she peppered sprayed him!! She kept calling his cell and they would fight loudly - finally he went outside to finish yelling - when his laundry was done - he changed his clothes - tried to get advice from me - asked me 'what do women want?' I told him the same as guys. Maybe she has trust issues from guys in the past. He says that his girl always thinks he is cheating on her, especially when she has been drinking - he says he has not cheated on her.......YET - I tell him, you cannot change people, it is up to you if you think it is worth sticking around and dealing with it - After talking to him and watching how he dealt with this all, I think he loves the drama and they Both deserve each other. - I wished him luck and he left - LOL - Gotta love my Job!!
BTW: Ya, I work Part time as a Manager at the Local Laundromat/Cleaners - it has it perks and characters!!

Happy New Years - Bling to the Ring!!

  For over a week now, I have been sick from the Flu that my Husband gave me during Christmas. This Day was the day after New Years Day. I had a bunch of stuff I bought from Amazon at our Mail Box Place. Since I still have no Car and I was to sick to walk in the cold rain to get pet supplies that we needed, I bought Bulk Cat Litter, Bird Food, Dry Cat Food & Wet Cat food. I was prepared to grab my red wagon and go get it, but Roy insisted that he will pick it up when his friend comes, who has a truck. I agreed that would be best and then continued to clean the house and take down the Holiday Decorations. Roy went to go get the pet supplies I bought and when he brought them upstairs, he threw the very large heavy boxes at me with a loud Thud! He then yelled at me that he brought these up to me out of the kindness of his heart. I replied to him, 'these are the supplies I bought with My money for Our Animals, but Thank you for bringing them home'.
 He then threw a $450- dental bill at me and asked me when I was going to help him with his dental bills. He was Irate, I remained calm. I am trying to learn how to handle things better then in the past. I would usually yell back at him, bring myself down to his level and discrediting any value I had to say. I would usually say something bad and end up being just as guilty as he was if not more. But this time, I held my ground and in a calm low voice, I told him that I already gave him $200- towards his dental bill, I just spent $200- on the rental car that I used to drive us to the Playboy Mansion for New Years Eve, I also just spent a lot of money due to the Holidays and that I will need a little time before I can help him out with the rest of his dental bill. He yelled back at me that he has No sympathy for my lack of funds due to my choice of spending and he has nothing to do with any of that. I told him that I am not saying I wont help him pay his dental bills, it is just that I make less money than he does, yet we share the Rent & Bills of the household and it will take awhile. He protested that it is not his fault that I make less money. I could tell that no matter what I said would matter. No matter what I did or said would not be enough.
 I reminded him that I am only going to spend, use and live off the money that I make. I refuse to get into any savings or the money I put away that my deceased grandparents gave me. I reminded him that, that money is my Grandparents blood, sweat and tears and was their life savings that they choose to give partly to me for security. I was not going to disrespect them by using it irresponsibly. I put that money away that I cannot even get to it if I wanted. It is a savings Only, nothing else. He just scuffed at me and said something like, if he had money given to him that the shoe would be on the other foot.
 I just remained calm, which is hard for me to do, I wanted to yell back at him, but I refrained. I told him that I had an idea. He spent almost $900- on a Gold & Diamond tennis bracelet for me on Christmas. I told him that I usually never wear gold, I never really wear fancy jewelry like that, especially a bracelet......and even though I appreciate the thought.......he really cannot afford to give me such a gift. I asked him if it was okay if I returned the Bracelet, used some of the money to fix my wedding ring, which means more to me, it is a bit big for me, I am afraid I will lose it and one of the diamonds fell out.....and then use the rest of the money towards his dental bill. He hated that idea. He yelled even more at me. Calling me greedy and shallow and that when he told his friends that I didn`t like the Christmas present he gave me that they all told him that if I wasn`t married to him, to break-up with me. I don`t really believe all that he said, but it still hurt. Even though he went on and on, I stayed calm and stuck to my guns. I plan on returning his gift he gave me. I hope to get my wedding ring fixed, which means more to me, I wear everyday and that way he can still say he bought me something nice for Christmas and I can use the rest of the money to help him with his dental Bill. I would hope that would make Everybody happy......I would Hope.

UPDATE Jan. 12th 2013:  I went to return the Bracelet - they in turn reversed the funds of $900- back into my husbands credit card. I then went and bought a $30- small simple silver ring band tight enough to wear on top of my wedding rings so they will not fall off of me and then gave my husband back his dental bill of $450- and told him he can now pay that bill with the funds from the bracelet. He then gave me the $30- for my Silver band I bought as my Christmas Gift. All worked out well!

Bloody Felix!

I walked into our bedroom and found Felix, our 2 year old Boy Kitty full of Blood. Blood was all over our bedspread. I rushed over to him to tend to him. I took him into our bathroom to clean him up and to find where the wounds were coming from. As I was cleaning him, I noticed Felix had no wounds, he was just stained with blood. He had blood on his mouth, that also came clean once I wiped it off. Felix was fine! I went to go look at my other cats to see if they were injured, Nope, no injuries at all. No Blood anywhere else but on our bed and on Felix. Which leads me to believe that Felix must have caught 'something' and Killed it, Injured it and/or Ate it. I looked everywhere, I found nothing. Felix does not go out side at all. He only goes on our 2nd floor balcony. I can only guess that he must have caught a Bird. I really hope that bird escaped or he ate the bird completely......I do not want to someday find the grisly remains.
