Third Shift At The Convenience Store

I work third shift at a convenience store while I go to school during the day. The owner is great. He allows me to study at work after I get my shift duties done and help customers promptly. There is not a lot of business during third shift, but we are the only store open all night.

Several stores have been robbed during the night in other towns near us. The police chief of our town asked the owner to change the window displays in our store. He wants his officers to be able to easily check on us at night. The owner agreed and assigned me the task of changing all the glass decals UK and posters.

Tonight I will take down everything and clean the windows. The local college has donated the services of design students to help us decide how to put everything back up to look great. Once the design has been decided, I will put posters and decals back on the windows. I am sure it will look great when everything is done.

My Favorite Things To Do

I am very busy. If there were 30 hours in a day, then I still would not finish half of the things that I needed to do. I work full-time, which is sometimes more than 40 hours per week. I am also married with four children. However, despite the fact that I am very busy, I still make time to do the things that I want to do. I feel like taking time out to yourself is an important for maintaining your sanity.

When I get free time, I love to go jogging. I also enjoy reading and making crafts. When I have the funds, I get a Thai massage Manchester because I find it to be very relaxing. Additionally, I occasionally take a weekend trip with a few of my friends.

A Disruptive Phone Call

I despise getting phone calls from companies looking to sell me things. I always get these phone calls at the most inconvenient times. I was eating dinner the other night and I got a phone call from a mysterious number. I begrudgingly answered it. I was shocked to hear a falsetto voice on the other end of the line asking me if I’ve found the right business to take care of my water filtration media needs. I was absolutely baffled because I don’t even know anything about H20 filters or anything of that sort. The person on the phone continued talking about this baffling subject in that unsettling falsetto voice. I caught random phrases such as “acid neutralizing media,” “arsenic removal media,” “sediment media” and “residential water softeners.” I wasn’t in the mood to have this topic disrupting my delicious dinner, so I abruptly hung up. That was a very out of character move for me because I’m usually very polite.

How life can change with one event

On a city bus one afternoon magic was made Ruth and George sat side by side as the bus traveled through rush hour traffic. They discussed weather, how jobs were going and other things. Both single and widowers, Ruth lost her husband in an oil plant work fatality. George lost his beloved wife during a medical procedure. As the bus trundled along these two souls were becoming closer. They were arriving to their final destination towards home. George pondered what to say while departing, He said “Ruth, you’re very delightful and it seems we have many commonalities. I’d like to take you on a dinner date if you agree?” Ruth was shocked! Internet dating was the last thing on her mind heading home. She’d been looking for a kind gentleman for months. George’s invite was delightfully accepted. They both felt companionship would be welcomed. plans were set and contact information exchanged amidst smiles and laughter!

Reformulating Ancient Wisdom

Insights on Perspective

An old Indian legend tells of three blind men who examined an elephant. “It is wide and thin,” said one, holding the creature’s ear. “No, it is long and narrow!” the second insisted, feeling the rope-like tail. “You’re both wrong!” The third contended. He ran his hand along the elephant’s broad flank. “This animal is huge and very heavy.” This tale circulated in many forms for several years, demonstrating how subjectively human beings interpret the world.

Modern Mischief

Now, just imagine if this ancient tale appeared on Bolton CCTV! Would ancient insight disappear under the intrusive gaze of the modern camera lens? Would viewers dismiss the three blind commentators, all of them honest, as just a trio of fools? Or would careful camera editing create confusion and partisanship? One lens might depict only the elephants ear in a close-up. Another could follow only the tail. And so forth…

How I Got Lucky… on the Internet

I know what you’re thinking. The title of this post sounds like this is going to go in an inappropriate direction. But what I’d actually like to report is the success I’ve had using a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) web design Manchester. Easier to use than WordPress, and cheaper than most options out there, I’ve found success in building several platforms for my online businesses and showcasing them with fun and stylish websites through Wix. For anyone looking for a cost-efficient, time-efficient, extremely simple way to get started on the internet, this is definitely the way to go. Being someone who isn’t extremely savvy with computers, I can say with experience this is one of the best options for people who want to make a splash on the Internet, without all those years of computer training.

I Needed More Customers Fast

I was selling a whole lot of old, used cellphones online, and I had accumulated them over several years of collecting as a hobby. I thought they would all be worth something someday as collector’s items, but, boy, was I wrong. They were actually worth nothing. People wanted all the newer models. It turns out that investing in technology was the wrong choice for me, and it ended up almost costing me my job. I didn’t know how to get ahead, and it was difficult to find a way through the morass and come to some new sales. I had to find people all over the Internet that didn’t know any better, and just wanted to find some cheap cell phones without regard to brand, price, or condition. I had to find some people that just needed to make a call. So I turned to cheap seo for help. They really got me some customers.

A Father’s Undying Love For Music

As I sit here in front of my piano, I can only think about how I got started in the music industry. My father was a noted electric violinist. He would play for large crowds and noted celebrities. He even played for the President one time. There is nothing that I would change about my musical life. One afternoon, as I was preparing for a recital, I noticed a cramp developing in my hand. This wasn’t a good sign as I only had a few hours to prepare for one of the most important performances of my life. The time of the recital arrived, and my hand seemed worse than it was earlier. I knew that I would do well as I had on the necklace my father gave me before he died. When I started playing, it felt like someone else had control of my hands, and I knew it was my father.
