Ok I have been asked to do flowers again for stake conference.. NO problem I love to do it and I have no problem doing it. Always given a nice budget of $100... however I dont have a $100 in my checking account right now and I cant seem to get the stake to pay before and then when I do have the money it ends up taking a month or 3 to get a check.
so i went to get a few things I ordered from the store... OK listen to this one.
Oasis= $1.00 x 2 = $2.00 x 5=$10
Tray= $1.00 x 2= $2.00 x 3=$6
Frens= $2.50 X 2= $5.00 x4= $20
That's $36 if that were the true prices. REALLY do you want to know what she wanted to charge me $52. I about freaked out.
Really NO flowers and she wanted to charge me $52 I almost just wanted to say... &#&^$%@* but I could not.
I have never treated a customer like this.. I would give them $52 worth of flowers I think maybe that is why I was not the best floral manager around but you know I had the customers.
I do someday want to have my education and making money and well open a flower shop of my own and give customers what they want! Dont get me wrong.. I am not going back to school to work the rest of my life in retail and on my feet but I can dream!
So I went over to the old store today. Jackie and Pat and I went out to lunch which was really fun.. but when I walked into the store it seemed dark, seemed like there was no spirit there. did I really work in a place like that for so long that it sucked the life out of me.
It was so nice to see all the people I did and to have all the hugs I got.. Oh and MOLLY the old jewish lady thats 95 gave me a kiss right on the lips. LOVE HER!
you know in the next life there are going to be some wonderful people there... I am so glad Naki is there teaching them the gospel and helping them see the truth.
But I was just so excited when one of my customers looked at me and said are you back.. NO I said I am not.. in a small voice she said well this one has no clue how to do what you did.. LOL
well this was my little afternoon.
Love to you all!
