Take A Day Off

image

                  January 28, 2016

I really don’t feel like doing anything today.  It’s chilly outside & it’s pouring down rain.  I just want to curl up in my bed with my love & my coffee. Sounds wonderful doesn’t it?

Well, truthfully, I can’t afford to do those things.  The bills have to get paid & if I don’t go to work how will they get paid?  Relax!  It’s ok to take a day off, trust me!  I’m guilty of never taking a day off.  I feel as though the work won’t get done unless I’m there.  I’m right, it doesn’t! That’s not my problem.

If you are sick, tired, or just want a day off… take it!   Most companies offer PTO, Paid Time Off.  Which means you have WORKED for this time.  YOU’VE EARNED IT!  Don’t feel guilty about taking a day off.  If you die today, that company will not shut its doors.  It will continue on as if you never existed!

No Matter What!

Today is Wednesday January 27, 2016!   Every morning before I open my eyes, I give thanks for another day.  Another day to wake up next to the love of my life.  Another day on his earth.

Before I hop in the shower I have to set my music for the day.  My music choice sets the mood for my day.  If I’m feeling peaceful, I play gospel music.  If I’m feeling sexy, I play some R & B, Freddie Jackson, Beyonce, Anita Baker, you know…the greatest.  This morning was none of that! This morning I had to put on some hustle music! I turned on Pandora & went straight for my DJ Khaled station.  The first song, All I Do Is Win!  PERFECT!

No matter what, I will have a great day.  No matter what I will smile! No matter what I will succeed!

Top 5 Reasons I Hate Politics

Maybe hate is a strong word…maybe not!  I have always had trouble in my history/political classes because it was so darn boring.  it’s the same thing over and over again.  We elect someone and expect our lives to miraculously get better over night.  Every individual expects the one they voted for to win and fix ALL their problems.  Poor saps.

Alright here we go, my top five reasons I hate Politics!

cleofus

5. It sounds like a foreign language to me. All of those big useless words put into play. For example; Caucus, Demagogue, Gerrymander. Then there are other words or phrases that are just so silly you know a hill billy named Cleofus came up with them and you’re trying to figure out their gibberish. Words like, Pork Barrel, Rubber Chicken Circuit, and Smoke Filled Room. Seriously?  http://www.scholastic.com/teachers/article/vocabulary-political-words

liar

4. Everyone is lying! Maybe this should have been number one on my list! Every politician from someone running for class president to P.O.T.U.S. has told us exactly what we wanted to hear to get our vote. “I’ll get you French fries for breakfast EVERYDAY” or “Read my lips, No New Taxes”! We’ve all fallen for those slick words a time or two because deep down we really want to believe them but…

scale

3. Only the rich can afford to run for an office. Broke people only know other broke people. That’s why the government has designed different social classes, to keep everyone in their place. Think about it! Why is education so expensive? Why is it cheaper to eat a cheeseburger rather than grilled chicken and vegetables? Why is it practically free to live in the “ghetto” but if go to another county five minutes away with the “better” schools, textbooks for every child, and any restaurant of my choice, I’ll have to work three jobs to afford a home there?

The O’Jays said it best;

“People will lie, Lord, they will cheat For the love of money People don’t care who they hurt or beat For the love of money”

pres candidates

2. There are too many people running for office. According to http://www.uspresidentialelectionnews.com/whos-running-for-president-in-2016/, there are eighteen people running for P.O.T.U.S in 2016. There are twelve Republicans, three Democrats, and three 3rd Party. I know there will be early voting to determine who will officially be on the final ballot but seriously, eighteen candidates? That’s not even the original count! A lot of people have dropped out of the race! If you need more understanding on how the election process works check out this link, The Presidential Election: How It Works | Librarypoint.

The number one reason why I hate politics… scapegoat

1. In the end it really doesn’t matter who wins. It doesn’t matter who wins the presidential election because congress controls everything. If the president passes a bill, congress has the power to veto that bill, “nah ah Mr. /Madam President, not today.”! You always hear people saying if you don’t like the way things are being run in your town or state call your congressman/woman. No one ever says “call your president”! The president is just the scapegoat. If something goes horribly wrong they just blame him or her, impeach that one and move on to whoever’s next in line to play the dummy.

I can respect anyone who truly wants to change the world into a better place and cares for ALL the citizens of this country. For the others, may God have mercy on you!

Never Touch A Black Woman’s Purse!

Madea

I’ve always been taught that a lady should carry a purse & never put your purse on the floor because you will lose money.   Also, a woman’s purse says a lot about her.  You can tell a lot about a woman’s struggle by the condition of her purse.  If her purse is ragged, tattered, torn, & cluttered inside, she may be going through a few things personally or financially. If her purse is pretty much in tact and organized, she has her #### together.  What about the women who carry designer bags?  Two things, they love a good strong bag & have a few coins, or it’s a knockoff & they’re fronting for other women.  (Sips tea)

I’ve never fit the mold & in this situation, I still don’t.  I love designer bags because it’s the quality I’m paying for.  Not because Nicki Minaj wrote a verse in a song.  (Insert shade here)  I can’t stand a knockoff because I don’t pretend to be something/someone I’m not.  (More shade please)  My bags are neatly organized because I have a touch of OCD.  Seriously, I’ve gotten better over the years.

At work one day, I sat my purse in an empty chair in a room with five chairs, only two being occupied.  I turned around in the room to do something & when I turned back around my purse was gone!  I took a few deep breaths, said a prayer, turned away then, turned around again to make sure my eyes didn’t play a trick on me.  Sure enough, it wasn’t there!  I noticed that someone was sitting in the chair that I placed my purse in a few moments ago.

I asked everyone in the room if they had seen my purse because I knew I came in the room with it & where I sat it down.  Two of the ladies pointed to the floor!  (Insert blood pressure here)  A fool had come in the office & sat in my purse chair!  She picks him (Depending on the brand my purse takes on that gender) up off the floor & says oh here you go!  Bitch!!!  Have you lost your ####### mind?

Ladies & gentlemen, boys & girls, nieces & nephews, I had to let the heffa know that she must NEVER TOUCH A BLACK WOMAN’S PURSE!  I kept it 50% professional & 50% I will beat yo ass-nal!  When she handed me my purse I immediately asked her if she had lost her #### mind.  As I’m talking to her about the importance of the situation she hit me with the, “yeah, yeah I know!”  (Place hand on hip here & lean to the left)

I say the following,

  1. Don’t ever cut me off when I’m speaking like I’m a child or I’m invalid!
  2. Do you see this label?  It does not say Dollar Barn.  (No shade) I paid good money for this purse.  
  3. It is disrespectful, on so many levels to touch, let alone move, any woman’s purse.
  4. Last but not least,  I WILL drag your ###!

2016-01-16-21.40.02.png.png

As I walked away I could hear her telling the other ladies that she will never touch any woman’s purse ever again!  She said she didn’t even want to touch her own purse.  (I don’t blame her)

Hopefully this will help to educate the world about the importance to Never Touch A Black Woman’s Purse!
