Another Thursday, another Thumbs up Thumbs down post. Read here for the back story of why I started this.

Thumbs up to the Lesson Plan SOS blog post called Symmetrical Sponge Bob. The symmetrical Sponge Bobs turned out ADORABLE! If you are in need of a symmetrical idea, head on over and check these out!

If you haven't linked up with Christi over at Ms. Fultz's Corner, you really should, or at least go to the blogs linked up and read all the great advice. The party is called...
This is a definite Thumbs up!

Thumbs up to reruns of the TV show The New Adventures of Old Christine. That show cracks me up!
thumbs down
Thumbs down to those people that take their job so seriously that they become a complete witch! So here is the story - sorry it's gonna be long. On days that I don't sub, I help a friend with her catering business. This past week we drove out to the clients business just to check out how the set up is going to go. When we drove up to the facility the security gate was open. There was no sign, stop, instructions or otherwise. So we proceeded to drive in and park. It turns out that was a big NO NO! We were greeted accosted at the front door by the security WITCH! We were instantly told that we were supposed to press the button. I asked, "What button?"...duh, I should have known, the one at the security gate (the one with no sign!). I responded by saying that the gate was open and she said, "That doesn't matter, our policy is to press the button". My logical response was, "There wasn't a sign saying we had to press the button" (now remember the gate is is still OPEN as she is reprimanding us). She proceeded to sternly tell us that the policy is to press the button. At this point I had to bite my tongue not to come back with the smarta** response that was ready to come spewing out. She finally asked us why we were there and we told her that we had an appt with our contact. She held the door open for us and said in her best general voice, "Stand by my desk and don't move!". We walked in and stood at the desk. My friend handed her our card. The witch then called our contact and this is what she said on the phone, "Are you expecting someone?", not Sherry is here for your appointment...really, did she really think we were trying to sneak in? When the monster guard finally hung up the phone she said, "Go sit over there, and don't move!" Needless to say, after our meeting with our contact, we told on her! She is going to get talked to :) Though I have a feeling we might get stripped searched when show up for the event.

 Your turn!


  1. Wow-how rude! I often wish people had more of a sense of humor-especially if you are working in a service industry.


    1. Yep, I agree, a sense of humor gets you a lot farther than being so nasty! Not really looking forward to going back for the event.
      Enjoy the rest of your week!
