Saturday On My Way To ' The Trade '

I must say....
I have had less aggravating mornings.

I am dealing with some unpleasant situations at the showroom.
One of which 
was the alarm was set off at 10am Saturday morning.
Just two minutes before I arrived....
.....the police & the sirens.

Good morning world!!!!

Why is it do you think 
that some individuals can not 
or will not cooperate with simple requests?
I told them that the alarm had been changed 
and I would be there at 10am to open the store.

It makes me wonder.....

  1. I go into panic mode when it comes to setting yo the alarm, and for this reason hates to open or close the Showroom on my own. I have set it off numerous times, goes into blank mode as to my code number. I should also mention that working late into the night, I realize that...I do not have the showroom keys and none of my employees (including myself) live near the store...
    Have a fabulous monday morning.

    hmmmm this situation was deliberate.
    you should just get s atudio with an alcove at the 'picasso'. it's right next door.
    use it as an office/guest house/rental/crash pad/nap room.

    my very first apartment was in the 'picasso' 210 e 58th. i think they still have the same doormen;
    jimmy and emanuel.

    xxx when you come down don't forget to contact me.
    i would love to meet. xxx

  3. I have two teenagers who seem incapable of following rules or directions-- so I feel your frustration.

  4. That is the most horrible thing. I have just had an alarm put in the house and yesterday morning completely forgot about it and danced into one of the rooms in sleep mode!!! Think I woke the entire neighbourhood before I could remember the code!!!!! I'm sorry you think it was deliberate how sad. hugs xx
