5 years ago, Jobless and without savings, I decided to fearlessly move to london to find new opportunities. Initially I was supposed to stay at my friend's until I find a new place but without a job it would have been pretty difficult. However, my friend's boyfriend knew someone who was actually looking for someone to live with as he had a spare room in a huge house. So he asked me if I was interested and I said yes... Gold ! This guy (Roger) didn't only allow me to live with him for free but he also cooked, helped me with my CV, my communication skills and appearance. But he mostly believed in me. RESULT.... I found a job in a huge corporation paying me an excellent salary, and in only 4 years my salary had tripled with experience and promotions...
I was visiting st Thomas for two weeks. First time there. I was staying with a distant relative I had not known existed until weeks prior. While there I went to hooters with my laptop ordered some wings and used their WiFi. I applied for a job at the marriott. 2 hours after i had left my phone started ringing. I answered and it was a recruiter. They wanted to interview me for the position. So I went and did the interview. I got the job. One year later today. I have my own apartment, living on my own at 23. No complaints I'm living the life. I recently got a raise too so I'm pretty happy. If your ever staying at the Marriott In st thomas I'm the pool attendant. See ya there :)
I had a horrible childhood and I ran away from home every chance I got, but as time went on I met a lot of people some was good, and some was bad, I ended up becoming a mother of 6 with no where to go I never finished school, and my first husband was a nightmare from hell, and after all that I ended meeting a guy out of no where I swear it was like the movie pretty woman I mean this guy has changed my life in so many ways and has taken me places ive dreamed of going and now its been three years and our wedding date is 05/01/2013.
I bought a top-of-the-line 50" rear projection HDTV about 6 years ago, which worked flawlessly until the lamp burned out last weekend. After replacing it, I noticed a very slight green tint on the screen. I called up the manufacturer, and it turns out the tint was a defect and there was a class action lawsuit for users experiencing the problem. I was offered a brand new LCD HDTV as a replacement, even though I was way past my warranty, and to top it off they told me to keep my old TV.
I went shopping with my Mum one day. She made me enter a competition I didn't want to enter because all I wanted to do was get home. I never enter any competitions because I never ever win. This time, I did win! I won $1000. To this day I still don't enter any competitions, so my entry/win ratio is still a good one
My sister wanted me to do the vaccuuming at work. I didn't want to but I agreed to do it because lately I've been thinking about how things I don't want to do always end up being good for you. Exercise, eating healthy, helping someone out if it means bad for you etc. I figured I'd get something out of it, like the good feeling of helping out my sister, a little exercise, clean store. While I was vaccuming, the following things happened: I found $2 on the floor, I ran into an old friend I hadn't seen in a long time (I usually work in the storeroom out of sight), I gave a customer useful info only I knew about, a kid dropped some sherbert on the floor RIGHT NEAR where I was vaccuuming (problem immediately solved), and the old vaccuum broke as I was doing the LAST spot!
I bought a dvd for approx $20. A day later, the same store was having a sale of 20% off all dvds. I took it back for a refund with the intention of buying it again for 20% off. I didn't do it straight away though because they would obviously know. So I went to another store to buy it a few days later. I got there and I realised that they dramatically upped the price, so even with the 20% off, I would have paid more than I did the first time. To my surprise though, that was their mistake. And their company policy for price errors is the customer gets it for free (provided they already paid for it). So I paid for it, knowing I'd get it for free after I complain. I complained and got it for free!
The other night I went to my car with my keys, phone and wallet. As I was opening the door, I accidentally dropped my phone in the drain where my car was parked. I tried to open the drain to fish it out but I couldn't. I gave up and accepted that I'd just threw my phone away. As I drove away, I realised my wallet wasn't with me. I drove back home hoping that I'd left it there, but found it on the ground near where my car was. I tried one more time (since I was out of the car again) to get my phone. The drain opened easily! It just never occurred to me at the time to try opening it FROM THE OTHER SIDE. Minutes later it started pooring down rain. It would have ruined my phone for sure.
Every time I used my pop's wave-ski, I never used the belt, but this one time I did because the water was particularly choppy that day. One wave was so big that it knocked me and the wave-ski upside down and I was face down in the water. Because I had the weight of the wave-ski on top of me, I couldn't for the life of me unlock the belt to set me free. I struggled very much so trying to keep my head above the water as my back was in a very twisted position due to being stuck on the other side of the wave-ski. I started calling out for help but no one around could see or hear me. I furiously paddling in deep water, then suddenly I came across a sand bank that I was previously unaware of. I stood up and freed myself. I was still a long way from the actual shore.
Everytime I buy Saturday tattslotto, I would usually buy a quick pick. But, I had decided to use my own numbers this time round. I was told I had to buy minimum of four games. So, I filled in the coupon with the exact same set of numbers and stuck to the minimum. It turns out that I won three and a half numbers, which gave me 4 x the winnings!! On a quick pick, I would have lost most times.
Lost my debit card only to have the guy at Ben and Jerrys facebook me and tell me he had it!
I was looking for directions on Google Maps and I decided to see if Google ever got around to adding my block for their Street View database. I typed in my address and was surprised to see a picture of my handsome self walking to work in the morning.
I was on a 900 mile drive for business. It was sleeting, and I was having trouble driving in it with my jeep, so I slowed down a bit. A semi was speeding in the sleet and rear-ended me straight on. My insurance went up, the cops were jerks, but all I could say was, "How on earth did I live through that? God only knows." So I answered my own question. I was so glad to be home I kissed the ground! On a bad day, I just remember how lucky I was to survive being hit by a speeding vehicle 100 times the size of mine.
