We are doing all of this work on the food bank/community garden. And people keep trying to kind of CHEAT!!!
We sell this guy at my DH's work some plants. We don't' have change and neither does he. So he shorts us a dollar and says "So we are even?"
UM HELL NO!!! This isn't my money. It is for the FOOD BANK!!! You know the people who feed those who have NOTHING!!! You can't pay your friggin dollar for the tomato plant?
Oh but I'm not done. I sell a tomato to a guy at work. He give me the choice of the dollar for the plant or something in a paper sack!!! SERIOUSLY!?!?!?!?!?!!?!? I tell him. This isn't MY money. IT IS FOR THE FOOD BANK!!!! I don't want what is in your paper bag unless it is a wad of CASH!!!!
What is WRONG with people? I just don't get it. It is for the FOOD BANK not us. We don't get any $$ for doing this.
Wish I could charge them double just on principal!

So last night I head to my DH's work to pick up the truck & trailer they are loaning us to get all of the wood. I get there and there are 3 police cars and a....like incident response vehicle. They are tearing apart a car in the parking lot. I'm thinking someone stole a car and abandon it there.
So weird. I head inside to find the DH and talk to the 3rd in charge. Whats going on? I ask.
GO TALK TO YOUR HUSBAND she says.
hmmmmm....so I wander around trying to find him.
Everyone in the building is in little groups. This is very unusual because they are ALWAYS working when I come in and rarely in groups.
Finally find the DH. He gets in the truck and I get into my car and we drive to the lumber yard.
Then he tells me.....The most trusted person in the company has been embezelling money for THE LAST 6 YEARS!!!!
They are starting to put together an amount and have found it to be starting at 150,000.00 heading up to $300,000.00!!! And this from a company that makes bank. So they aren't hurting missing that kind of money!!! Seems the police have been following her and doing video and pictures for weeks. They have enough evidence that while she was at work yesterday they packed up her ENTIRE house as evidence and then arrested her at work!!!!
My DH was shell shocked all night last night. We both were. It is inconcevible that she could/would do this to Michael. He trusted her above all others. Everyone in the company knew that no matter what Jodi was safe from loosing her job.
And I know this is terrible but all I can think is ..... DO THEY STILL HAVE A COPY OF MY RESUME????????? --
