      For the 2 of you that care. I disappeared for a little bit, but I had a good reason. We hired a new person at work, and when they got hired on, a couple weeks later we got introduced to a new policy. See, our bank has "extended hours" where we are open 7 A.M. to 7 P.M. and our lobby is only open from 9 to 5. The new policy said that anybody that was hired to work the extended hours couldn't do so by themselves for 90 days. So here I am, covering that shift for 2 weeks, when that policy gets dropped on us, and we have to set up a rotation. Blarg. So, not only have I been working more hours, but I've been having to work every other Saturday since the new person can't do that either. It's been a royal pain, but they decided to drop that policy for now, so we are back to normal.

      I did have the pleasure of having this past weekend off, and to celebrate, my family went to Nashville to watch the Titans get beat up upon by the Colts. 'Twas an excellent game and ended up being much closer than what any of us expected. I took a buttload of pictures, which you can view at your leisure at: here! You'll see everything from football superstars, to F18 jets, to my ugly face, to my ugly face with a slight shade of red, to the elusive White Castle.

      In other good news, I bought a new iPod. Mmmm...A new iPod Touch, yummy. It is so sleek and the interface is so smooth, I love the thing. I've got 1500 songs (quite a few at Lossless quality) and a whole season of Robot Chicken, and it's pretty well filled up. Watching YouTube on the go is fun, downloading music on the go is fun, but what I enjoy most is just surfing the web on it. It's so easy to get around the web. It rocks. I'm selling off my old 30 gig iPod if you may know someone interested. If not, I'll be putting it up on eBay this weekend. It has 0 scratches or blemishes on it, comes with a full body iSkin evo3 case, approximately 4 months left on the AppleCare, and the original box with original earbuds and usb cable.

      But, that's all I've got for now, hopefully something exciting will happen today or this weekend and you'll get to hear about it. 'Til then, tata!

      Ok, it looks like I disappeared for a little. I didn't. I promise. I got a little busy. I worked a little more last weekend because we had a customer appreciation day and I was scheduled to work Saturday. Monday, I was home maybe 15 minutes between work, getting a haircut, and going on a date. Yeah, I had a date. Eat it, Brakus. We went out to the Chop House and to a baseball game. It was alot of fun and we'll probably go out again sometime. I think I've gotten her interested in going to the shooting range sometime. ANY girl that isn't inherently opposed to firearms is a keeper in my book. Tuesday I went and saw Transformers. Best freaking movie of this year so far. It was an all around fun, exciting movie that keeps you wondering what's going to happen next. Great stuff. My 4th was a good one. I got to sleep in 'til noon and had grilled cheeseburgers. Mmmm, my personal favorite. I hope everybody enjoyed their 4th of July as much as I enjoyed doing nothing for mine. I hope to have something of interest to post here soon. Let's see who I can piss off while working tomorrow ;-)

    • Today's Money Tip

      11 years ago

      BaStAgE

      Hello. I think I'm going to start writing journal's on how to take care of your money based on personal experiences. I hope this isn't against bank terms, but I'm not mentioning any names, so...away we go.

      Today's tip is about keeping track of writing checks. It is a good idea to keep track of how much you're spending when you're writing checks, but even more important is keeping up with check numbers. Some banks can give you temporary checks when you first open your account so you can immediately start taking advantage of your new account. Now, a smart person will give you a different run of numbers for these checks than the checks you'll get in the mail, but sometimes, we bank employees, being people as well, forget to do this.

      Here is where the fun begins. If you should lose those temporary checks we gave you and tell us to put a stop payment on them, we will. And when you get your check book that has those same numbers that the temp ones had, do NOT write checks with the numbers that a stop payment was put on. They WILL come back and we WILL NOT pay them, and if you do, YOU will be responsible for all fees. Do you know what a significant number is? It's okay if you don't; I know it takes a certain level of dedication and perseverance to reach 11th or 12th grade. I'll explain what I mean by this. These temporary checks will sometimes print out as check number "000100." This is no different than another check that is numbered "100," especially to a computer. If you put a stop payment on check number 100, then it doesn't matter if the check is 000100 or 100, it's not going to be paid. And if you're not smart enough to realize there is no difference, then you don't need to be in control of money. Not yours. Not mine. Not the homeless bum on the corner. If you purposely write a check that has a stop payment on it, then you deserve what's coming to you. And when the company you're disputing with calls me to get the low-down on what's happening, I'm going to tell them that it is your fault you wrote a bad check and that you are responsible for all fees. Oh, what's that, you closed your account too? Aw, that doesn't hurt us. How do you think you're going to look to that company now? Writing bad checks then closing the account. Yeah. Real smart there, skippy.

      People seriously need to think a little farther than the end of their stubby noses for their own good. If you don't want to though, that's fine. I need something to laugh at to keep me going through the day. I mean, Tom Cruise being banned from filming a movie on German military bases because he's a mindless Scientologist is funny, but not as funny as what happens in front of me sometimes. I hope you have a nice day!

      Oh, and for the love of God, TAKE A SHOWER MORE THAN ONCE A WEEK (ONCE EVERY OTHER DAY IN THE SUMMER) AND BUTTON UP YOUR FREAKING SHIRT. BEER BELLIES AND GREY CHEST HAIR IS FRICKING SICKENING. MORE SO THAN THE ODOR EMINATING FROM YOUR WORTHLESS BODY.

      Uh...For anybody that reads this...Hi. I'm alive. And um. I have a new job at a bank, no Sears. And...I got a new bass. And a new amp. And a new pistol (b-day gift to myself). And I play WoW way too much. So, here I am. I'm gonna try to check this more often until I find there isn't that much to check for me and then I'll disappear for seemingly forever again. Toodles!

      Ok, I know I haven't updated for a while (never do, bite me), but I have a good reason this time. I went to Guitar Center the other day and got my Christmas gift. It's this. I got an acoustic-electric guitar smiley0.gifsmiley0.gifsmiley0.gifsmiley0.gifsmiley0.gifsmiley0.gifsmiley0.gif I'm so fricking happy. I'm gonna teach myself how to play, just like I did on bass. I've all ready learned a few easy songs (Smashing Pumpkins - Disarm, Story of the Year - Sidewalks, and Green Day - Wake me up...) and some chords that aren't power chords. Honestly, you should count yourselves lucky that I'm even on here updating this much, and that my fingers hurts slightly...but I'll get over that soon, very soon. So, what are some good acoustic songs? Nothing difficult, maybe some difficult parts in the song. My brain is a sponge...it must soak up more!

      I'm too scared to move, too scared to lose
      Tell me what I am supposed to do
      I'm too close to see you, but too far to touch
      And too many times, I've not done enough

      I'm too close to see you, too far to touch,
      And too many times I've not done enough
      I'm too strong to hurt you, but too weak to crush
      I want to, oh, oh let's go

      Oh-oh let's go everyone out the door
      When you hear it go, hear it go, hit the floor
      Let's go everyone hit the floor
      When you hear it go, hear it go out the door
      Oh-oh, let's go hit the floor, oh-oh here we go, here we go

      I'm too scared to choose, scared to refuse
      Tell me what I am supposed to do
      I'm too wrong to be you, too right to blush
      And too many times I've not done enough

      Tonight I walk alone no matter where I've been
      No matter whete I'm goin', I know
      Green lights mean time to go
      But I won't let them in 'cause I might lose control

      Oh good! So I have my actual checks... wait. If I loose my real checks and re-order for more... would I have to worry about similiar numbers in that case as well? Or is that only with temporary checks?

      I think not being smart enough to realize you're screwing yourself over is less entertaining than keeping smarter people from using their money for a few days

      XD XD XD Can you do that? How?

      I don't understand the bank system very well... >.>;

      And by "very well" I mean "at all". xD
