i'm speechless

As I said in yesterday's post, I read A LOT. I also read pretty fast, especially when I get my hands on a really good book that I can't put down.

This book was one of those books, I was hooked from the very beginning. I just finished it. I absolutely cannot. believe. the. way. it. ended. I am so mad right now, I seriously wish I knew the author so I could yell at her.

What's even worse is that I love when I find a new author that I really like and can't wait to read other books they may have written or can't wait until they come out with a new book. I will NOT be reading any of this author's other books....old or new.

I started selling my books on Amazon a few months ago (I'm always reading something, so I figured I might as well at least sell the books I've read, to make money for the books I want to buy) and I've probably sold about 12 books and not one person has left feedback.

I always leave feedback when I buy from someone on Amazon, because I know that helps them sell their books.....I always check the seller's rating/feedback and I figure other people probably do too.

Do any of you buy or sell books on Amazon?

my boyfriend must be feeling suicidal.....

he gave his sister my cell phone number. She called him last night and this is the conversation we had when he got off the phone:

Me: Why did you give your sister my phone number?

Boyfriend: She said she wanted to call you tomorrow and ask you something.

Me: Why didn't you just tell her to ask me while she was on the phone with you just now, you know how I feel about her having my phone number. (I don't want any of his family to have my phone number because when they call him and he doesn't answer, instead of leaving a message and waiting for him to call them back like normal people, they keep calling him until he answers the phone....I don't want them to start calling my phone when they call his and he doesn't answer.)

Boyfriend: I don't know, she just said she'd call you tomorrow and ask you.

Me: In the future, please don't give my phone number out without my permission. If she starts calling me every time she calls you and you don't answer, I'm changing my phone number and I'm not giving you the new digits.

Yes, I am aware that I am a total bitch not very nice when it comes to his family.

crazy co-workers

Whitney wrote this post and I thought it was hysterical. I've worked with these types of people before, but luckily haven't had to endure one in awhile.....until now.

We had a new employee start about a week ago and the first couple of days she seemed pretty normal and then it all went downhill from there. She's not as bad as
Whitney's co-worker, but she's still pretty annoying.

She's one of those "everything is all about me, and if it isn't, then I will make it all about me" people. The other day a friend of mine at work was in my office and we were having a conversation and the new woman was walking by my office and just came in and interrupted my friend mid-sentence to tell us a story about her.....I wasn't interested in hearing her story and I'm still not sure why she thought I might have been.

She's also not too bright. She came in my office another time and asked me where she could find a pencil sharpener. After I told her where it was (anyone in our office that even uses pencils, uses mechanical pencils, so we only have one electric sharpener and it stays in one central location for everyone to use) I found out that she went and asked another co-worker the exact same question.....the funny thing about that was, that the other person she asked gave her the exact same answer that I did. And I think she went and asked the other co-worker BEFORE she even went and looked to see if it was where I told her it was. Did she think I was lying to her?

The sad thing is she's only been there about a week and she's already showing signs of being someone that nobody wants to work with......I can only imagine what she's going to be like after a few months!
