Sounds like people only care about them selves never thinking about the real person who is on the other end of what they want, now! Just like kids, I want what I want and I want it now!
But, I guess if you want to keep thier business you have to do their way.

You have a great attitude and that makes all the difference!
Thank you ... my attitude isn't quite so gracious when I'm sitting here waiting for late work! And yes, some clients make us jump through impossible hoops, but we do need to accommodate them as much as possible---advertising is a VERY competitive business. But I remind myself that my workplace is more considerate than others, and that helps. The trade-off for unscheduled after-hours is that we are often released a few hours early the day/Friday before a holiday. And I work with good people.

Hello my favourite MMC Gang!

How are you?

Are any of you directly affected by the government shut-down? (are we allowed to talk about politics here?)

My day so far has been very busy and I hadn't time to look into the forum. I'll try to read all your posts later. Half of my co-workers were on a meeting outside the office and we had to split all the work between two people.

Ah welll, tomorrow is another day.

At least I got the news, that I will receive my ordered Homeland season one DVD shortly.

Good morning,

It's Wednesday, which means it is I don't want to go to work day. Just trying to get some major relaxing in before going, watching the "It's A Bundyful Life" Christmas episode of Married...With Children, it always makes me laugh. My headache is gone, and it is a sunny warm day, suppose to be in the mid 80's today.
I hope you all have a good Wednesday.

Good morning!
It is going to be sunny and warm today. I walked the dogs nice and early, before it gets too hot. My air conditioner is already running. I am heading out to run a few errands now then back home for chores. I have to wear a white collar polo shirt to Yankee Candle tomorrow so I need to pick one up while I'm out. Not too much else going on today. My daughter has a job interview after school at Crabtree & Evelyn. I hope she gets in there, its a beautiful store. My other daughter has an interview with Coach on Friday. That would also be a nice store to get in to, as long as she doesn't want to buy a new handbag every time she gets a paycheck. So many stores around here are looking for help, they are definitely getting ready for the holiday season!
I hope everyone is well and has a wonderful day!!!

I was wondering how things were going in the States with that. I guess I could turn on CNN and listen to it non stop all day.
I am sure it is not easy for some.

Good Morning MMC!!!!! It's going to be a cloudy day here with a high around 80 degree's. There is a slight chance of rain too. Not to much going on here today. My bedroom closet is being over run with boxes from amazon and other places that I have ordered gifts from. So I'm going to try to condense everything down to just a few boxes until I start wrapping. I also need to do some laundry and my normal daily chores. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!
