Rude is the new norm

 Hi friends, hope you all had a good Friday.I did'nt sleep again last night so I dragged myself into work today feeling half-dead.It was a busy day and I must have given away like 20 World Market totebags.Here is a huge pet peeve of mine, people who come up to the register yakking on thier cell phones and do'nt say one word to me the whole time of the transaction.I just think that is so unbelievably rude.But nowadays manners are non- existant and rudeness seems to be the new norm.I still have'nt heard from Diane so I am going to assume she does'nt want me as a friend anymore.God it hurts my heart.I have always been good to her so I ca'nt see why she would want to end our friendship of 3 years but hey if that what she wants then , fine so be it.I am just so confused as to why ???????? Guess I just have to let her go and move on with my life.My sweet Anthony came back today and wow did he look good , he was smiling and had a nice tan.My paycheck was huge today from working 4'th of July and Cheryl gave me my vacation pay, yea !!!!!!! Hey Lisa Jo or Chrissie do you know the cost of a Tivo ? I am thinking of getting one this weekend, are they hard to use ? Any help would be much appreciated, Have a great weekend friends, I Love You All Lisa XOXO P.S. That choir song from CSI last night was playing in my head all day long at work, lol.Guess I need to buy it :)

i dont own a TIVO....that is a brand name. I have what my cable company calls a DVR....you need to call your local cable co and see what they offer. They are almost the same thing  but a TIVO will have more storage space. My DVR has changed my life. Without it i would never have watched CSI or 30 other shows. It is very rude to talk on a cell and not acknowledge the cashier..how awful!
Get some rest!
love,lisa

Try not to fret so much over her not calling.  There may be good reason other than what you are thinking.  Have a good weekend Lisa.

I love the title of this entry...rude IS the new norm.  That should be the slogan for this new millenium.  :(

People are very rude and it's not getting any better! I get that all the time when I call a patient back to the room and they are on the phone. I ask them politely to please get off so I can get their vitals. Some are actually annoyed!
I'm sorry about your friend.

Hugs,
Gretchen

I think somepeople are just born rude & others get a kick out of seeing how miserable they can make ones life. I'm going through a little bit of rudeness with dad's g/f right now. Emmi

I think those TiVos run around $250 for 80hours if you're buying one yourself they go up from there according to how much time you want for recording. I just have mine through my cable company it's a HDTV Motorola one, but it costs me $7.50 a month to use it. In the long run would be better to own your own.
Glad Anthony made it back safely. Hope you have a great trip.
Take care, Chrissie

I use my tivo from my cable company as well but i agree with chrissy if you can save for one and get your own it would be worth it
hope you have a good night
