Interesting Things Going On

May 14th, 2014 at 03:40 pm

1. My boss just confessed to me that she is one of two candidates for a job at another organization. She wanted to know is she should tell her boss -- I said no, not until an offer is made. I think there will be some changes around here!

2. I found a stack of nine pennies on a ledge on my way to the station. I pocketed them, of course, but I wonder why someone would do that? Do people just hate pennies?

3. I think I'm giving up on the crystal cat litter. It smells really good for a week, and then it starts to smell really bad, and then it's really difficult to clean the box. It lasts less than half the time it's supposed to. And it's so expensive! However, I still have 3/4 of a container to use.

4. I took a Nielsen survey that will pay $5.

5. I think I'll go with that oven stone for my recognition gift!

    I HATE pennies! I know they are good money, but they are always a disappointing hassle. Like when I am buying something and it's $7.57 and I know that I have a ton of change in my purse and I reach in and its all pennies! I rarely am willing to make the person behind me in line wait while I count out pennies so I just don't use them. I have been known to throw pennies in the trash on many occasions because I get so frustrated with them rattling around in there. It drives my husband insane when he hears me throwing coins into the trash - but I ask him if he wants them and he doesn't want them either! Darn pennies!

    However, just last night when I was getting some water from our cooler(one of those one that holds 10 gallon bottles)I thought that I might use one of those empty bottles and start filling it with all my annoying change and save that for my son. I figure by the time he is 18 it might be full and then actually worth something!

    Ooohhh, where are those trash cans? Smile
    I have picked up more than $34 in change in the last three years. And I'm a slacker! You should see what Baselle does!

    When my change bowl gets full I take it to the CoinStar in the grocery store and get store credit. I don't find change annoying at all!
