What I learn about men each day

My life in a coffee shop. May interactions and dealings with customers every day. Mostly about men because they are so memorable. For women to read because we will see these traits in all of our men.

New life ahead

I am looking for a new job..
Let's see what is available to a tired , worn out,burned out Starbucks partner? I make a dank Latte and pour a great cup of coffee...what else can I do?
DK yet.. exploring the options is fun but scary..

I can delegate with the best of them..clean and smile and make people feel welcome..run numbers and be profitable and cajole and smile and smile and smile and be happy, and a wiz at Jeopardy! ..sounds like I would be perfect for Disneyland except for those darned costumes :)

How do I turn 10 yrs of experience into a new career?

Ideas will be accepted

Why do men like to read things out loud??
The paper, the box scores, the want ads and of course Yahoo articles.

The last time I read out loud was to my son about 5 years ago. He is now 13 and can read himself.
He learned not to read out loud!

What are some occasions that one could read out loud ?

I am having a serious case of writers block.... I figure the best cure is to start writing anything. Don't like phonies..no , not cell phonies, but peeps who listen but don't really care about you or your issues.

What are your issues today???

Love, sex, money or lack of money??
Who has so much money they don't know what to do with it???
Let me know and we can blog about excesses.
I like excess:)

A new Era

Hello old friends and some new ones.
So much water under the bridge. I think I am missing a life once lived and friends once loved. However, there are ways to re-capture the "magic" of friendship. I love to write about my daily life and observations. At one time I was writing a book with a REAL publisher but had to skeedaddle out of California and into Florida. I am thinking about picking up where I left off... no not Florida but life's adventures in (drum roll) Massachusetts. Home of the Pilgrims, Sox and people who have a rather odd accent.
What should we talk about? It's great to be back in print.
It is up to you...
Tell me

I got to thinking about all the friends I have worked with over the past 8 years.
All of those at 6 or 7 Starbucks across the country.
All of them are still open!!!

Do men remember , think about work relationships and co-workers like women do?
Or are we just sentimental?

Joining Facebook has put all those faces back in my life.

Good memories, fun times and many many lattes and mochas.

Tell me men. Do you remember old friends?

Snow Day

I am still getting used to driving in the snow.
How does one do it?
It is very slippery and cold and people here drive too fast anyway!

I was hoping to get a ride to work today from my fiance.'
I think he has other plans and now I am feeling very unimportant.
Why are men so inconsiderate of our feelings???

Come on men.... Do you think about your women's feelings or are there just too many feelings to consider? Maybe that's it. Women have too many feelings???
What do you think?

Groundhog Day

Living in Massachusetts, the winter is very long.
So what is this with a bunch of old men pulling a groundhog out of a cage???
Let the poor animal sleep !
Winter is here anyway whatever shadow the hog sees.
Swimsuit season is coming soon that's all I know.
Looking forward to many days lazing in the sun.

Perhaps a vacation somewhere warm??
any suggestions?
Where would you go in the deep ,dark, cold part of winter?
