Have you hated your job this much??

Most of us have worked a job we hated!  If you have not then you truly are one of the lucky ones.  It may not be that you hated the job completely, but loving it 100% is a totally different experience!  I can clearly say that I am not one of the lucky ones and I think the worst is customer service jobs.  I have had the privilege of working in a prison serving inmate and working in retail serving society.  Reality is I received more respect for inmates then I have from random people coming into the retail store I worked at.  However, with all the stories I have heard nothing compares to a call center.  Sure I get that not all call center staff are created equally, though neither are all customers.  Some customers take the bad news with a grain of salt and others feel it is their job to ruin another persons day. 

Do not get me wrong I have called many different places and have been irritated by the agents I have dealt with or did not like the answer.  However, I have never insulted a person, yelled at them or called them names.  Why you might ask?  Well you need to treat others the way you would like to be treated.  We all know the saying that "the customer is always right" and really this could not be farther then the truth.  Having that mentality for some means that they feel no matter how they act or behave towards the person they are dealing with is right.

I always make sure if I am dealing with a company to try to be as friendly as possible, because you never know what is going on in that other persons life and I'd hope that I would receive the same in return from them if the situations were reversed!  If we all were a bit nicer to each other I am sure the world would be a better place.  Though keep in mind the next time you are rude to someone you might be the reason they quit their job like this....

Ha Ha, Clearly Joey is happy quitting his job!

"Where there is a will, there is a way. If there is a chance in a million that you can do something, anything, to keep what you want from ending, do it. Pry the door open or, if need be, wedge your foot in that door and keep it open."

Eden Fantasys Review

Disclaimer: This review links to an adult website that displays adult content and toys. Please read at your own discretion.

Sex toys - EdenFantasys adult toys store

Who ever said adults are not allowed to have any fun?  I think many times we forget that we can not work all the time we need to take the time to relax and play and have some fun too!  I remember when I was pregnant at one of our prenatal classes the instructor told all of us to make sure that we do not forget about having "fun" with our partners.  We need to find a balance between being the best parent, the best daughter/son, sister/brother and everything else in-between but majority of couples will forget about their partners needs!  She also stated that if we do forget about our partner the likelihood that by the time our children turns 5 we will be in relationship turmoil.  I remember sitting in the class thinking "Ya right, really how can a child change that much".  Reality is that they do and even though my eldest is going to be 5 in two months and my husband and I are happily married I sadly know too many couples with children similar in age that are no longer together!

This is one of the reasons I absolutely adore EdenFantasys as it is a one stop shop for your relationship needs and helping to keep the spark alive.  I know there are many men and women who may not feel comfortable heading into their local adult shop, but with EdenFantasys you can shop from the comfort of your own home and check out their extensive customer reviews to see if they have the right product for you.  However, with the large selection of products available I guarantee you will find something for yourself and your partner! 

Not to mention that Halloween is just around the corner and EdenFantasys has so many treats you can get for the comfort of your own home!  Looking for something to wear?  Maybe your looking for a treat like chocolate? Who knows maybe your more of a trickster.  Take some well deserved "me time" and visit their site and see they carry everything from sexy lingerie, massage oils or anything sensual for the bath or body and so much more.

Childrens Book Review: When the Leaf Blew In

If you have not had the chance to read this book with a child, I definitely recommend getting yourself a copy of When the Leaf Blew In by Steve Metzer.  It is a fun book that teaches the children about cause and effect.  The book starts off with a cow who sneezes because a leaf blew into its barn.  You then follow through the book and realize that one thing leads to another.  The pictures in the book are fun and colourful.   

When the Leaf Blew In is great for preschoolers and JK/SK students.  The story will definitely hold their attention til the end!  Not to mention this is a favorite book of my 3 yr old right now!  This book is available at many different outlets for under $10.00 and if you are trying to cut down costs check out your local public library!

Happy Reading!

Easy Lunch Boxes Review

If you are looking for the perfect lunch kit for your children look no further I have tried and tested the best of the best and I know you will love it as well.  I was given the opportunity to try the Easy Lunch Boxes lunch system.  It is perfect for packing a variety of foods for your children and in an environmentally conscience way.

The Easy LunchBoxes held a variety of food in one container and I was impressed with the fact I did not need to worry at all about anything leaking it kept each food in its own container and looking delicious for their lunch!  They are light and will not weigh down your child's back pack and most importantly you have 4 containers and it will definitely last you for the year if not longer.  You get to pick the colour of the lunch kit you would like as well so you can go ahead and pick one your child will like or pick one that will not fade with their trends. 

The lunch box is non toxic, BPA free and most importantly suitable for adults to use as well.  So save some money and create your own bento box as well!  They are stackable so you can save space in your cupboard and still eat healthy everyday.  Not to mention I loved the ideas for lunch that you can find right on their website.

Be sure to check out Easy Lunch Boxes and while your at it check out the great giveaway they have right now.  You may just win your own
