Life Letters...

Dear People:

Some thoughts on life.... Just some random tidbits of juicy knowledge to make you laugh and think.

1. Did you know that Pineapples do not grow on trees??? FOR REAL... Its kinda sad that I did not know this until my 27th year of life.. I felt kinda dumb. This all came up because I play those farm games on the Facebook and you can plant pineapple in the ground. I had to have a chuckle because I thought I was smarter then the developers of these games.. So I said something to Hub and made it my status on Facebook... This led into to Hub and I talking about this and neither one of us really knew so we took it to Wikipedia. They grow on this bush like thing.. Kinda weird I know. I have to give props to Wikipedia, I really do wonder how many marriages they have saved or broken up... I know I use it to solve useless marriage tiffs.

2. Did you know that I pay this kid and his family to pick up dog poo-poo in my back yard? I do.. And I think its worth $3 every time they come. I hate dog poo with a passion and I am grateful for them. I was a little weary of them at first because I did find them on the KSL classified ads and then when they showed up, Their dad made them do all the work. I just kept think WTH I would hate my dad if he made me do this... But then I let it go because they are not my family and if they really really really hated it they would charge me more. If you or someone you know have problems with poop let me know, I know some people.

3. Did you know that I think people that yell at fast food workers are seriously the stupidest people on the earth... Really are you going to stand there an yell at someone you don't know that is preparing food that is going into yours and your families mouth. Lets break it down... These people make $8 an hour doing a crappy job, are they going to think twice about not spiting in your food or putting a boggie on it... HMMMMM OR picking it up off the floor and serving it to your son... Maybe you like spit and fecal matter in your food... I know I don't so I am super nice to these people. I use to work fast food in my younger days. I worked at Subway in Alabama, I would not eat at that location today It was pretty gross and I did not care because I was in High School making $5.25 an hour I was a BIG Baller

4. Did you know I worked at Chick-fil-a in Sandy and people did not yell at us there because we were AWESOME... You have a problem with your chicken sandwich NO PROBLEM let us give you another one and a coupon for a FREE sandwich... I am pretty sure that if Chick-fil-A ran the world there would be no problems. They have the best answer for everything. I learned so much from that job and made some good friends. So much so that I would probably go back and work there If I needed a job. I did quit that job because I did get burned out of cleaning up after the Sandy/Draper elite and their 2 kids... I would like to mention Chick-fil-A's coupon policy because you know I have a coupon hang up. They take as many coupons per transaction that you have, and they don't care if they are expired or from another place. It did have to be a chicken sandwich coupon and you did have to fulfill the coupon requirements like buy a coke or another sandwich...

5. Did you know that I am still in LOVE with Chick-fil-a and am proud to say I worked there. I bet you did not know that I get a little teary eyed when I see them in the news... I do. Really how many food places have 500 people lined up for a grand opening of a store??? Maybe In and Out Burger.. But Chick-fil-A cares about YOU.. Not your money.. One of the things they teach was make a costumer not a SALE. I knew so many of our regulars and their names and what they wanted. They would WAIT in my line for ME, because I cared about them and they cared about me because if they came in and I was not there... There was HELL to pay. How dare Chick-fil-A give me a day off... Next time you are in there notice how they call for the next person... "I can help the next Guest" If they don't please say something to the manager or call the 800 number.... And my favorite thing... It was my pleasure to write this blog... YEP if you said your welcome while working you would get beat down... No not really but your co workers would promptly correct you....

So there are 5 random things that I have been thinking about... I hope you are clearly confused and feel like I have wasted 10 mins of your life. So get off the computer and get back to cleaning your house and playing with your kids... Maybe you should take them to Chick-fil-a I would if they did not use stinking Peanut Oil.... stupid allergies... OH yeah part of your chick-fil-a training included intense product knowledge. You were TESTED (for real) about what EVERY product contained. I know this because in my last year I was a Trainer there... I do have to say this... When training, train like that person has never heard of whatever it is... and tell them all about it... If you do that you will have the best trained person ever. Never assume they know anything... because chances are they don't.

xoxoxoxo,
Leah

Ummm, I don't think I knew that pineapples didn't grow on trees either. :(

I worked at DQ throughout high school and I have very fond memories of the place. We weren't quite as well trained when it comes to customer service, but I do have a LOT of empathy for fast food workers now. I always give the benefit of the doubt.

Haha, I'm glad we can be friends again!! YAY! I love your blog and can now enjoy reading it again. I am SERIOUSLY going to chik-fil-A right now! I'm not even kidding! I feel like CRAPPPPP today so I am going to get dinner for me and the hubs and kiddos.... they love fil-A :D I wish we lived closer too :( but in better news we are going to get a third vehicle to save on miles and gas and for Duc to take on small runs so he can save $$ with his truck too... so hopefully we'll not have to worry quite so much about that. Duc is still a freak about me driving in the snow so the winter will still be a battle... he worries too much. N E way talk to ya lata.

I hate when a fast food employee or checkout person says You're Welcome- Huge pet peeve of mine after working in retail! Thanks for making me smile!

I knew the pineapple fact (only because I went to Hawaii on my honeymoon).

I think it hysterical that you pay someone to pick up your dog's poop. That is priceless.

And listen, outsource away on the poo. UGH.
