Blog Tagged

It finally happened. I got blog-tagged by Ron. Here it goes. At least he didn't threaten me with 10 years of bad luck if I don't do it.

The Rules:
1. Link to the person that tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.
4. Tag six random people at the end of your post by linking to their blogs.
5. Let each random person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their website.

1. I must have my windows open in a certain order.
Work - Left to right. For work it is Compass, XiPay for refund (they are side by side), next is XiPay for research, Personal e-mail, then any other work-related windows. If Compass gets closed, I will close everything to reopen in the right order.
Home I have firefox with tabs. Tab 1 Meebo, Tab 2 Gmail, Tab 3 Facebook, any remaining tabs are for browsing.

2. I have never used an ATM.
I don't like them, I waitress, so I always have cash. When I do manage to go to the bank, I go see a teller. Usually I mention that I waitress, so nobody questions why I have a big stack of $1 dollar bills.

3. I have almost 200 hours of Paid Time Off.
Yet I will probably drive to work on icy roads tomorrow morning, because I feel guilty calling in. I have only called into work for bad weather one time in my entire life. Plus, I like to use my time off for something fun.

4. I hate Debit cards.
I am constantly dealing with the problems that arise when people put their debit card on file, then get mad when we charge it for their order and it causes overdraft charges. Then people want my company to pay for the charges.
Debit cards also don't offer much protection when it comes to fraud. If someone were going to steal it, they could clean out your account. Credit cards are so much safer.

5. I don't use bookmarks.
I could be reading the longest book in the world and I still would not feel it necessary to mark my page. I don't bend the corner either. I just open the book and flip until I reach the spot I left off.

6. My biggest pet peeve is when people misspell my name.

I can be understanding if people do not see it written out and have to guess. It really bothers me at work, when my first and last name are spelled out, that people write TanJa or TOnya.

I'm not tagging anyone. If you want to do it pretend I told you to.

Hi Tanya (see I spelled it right!)

Thank you so much for dropping by my blog and leaving your sweet message. You must have been the... oh, I don't know... THIRD person ever (including me) to read my blog.

So drive safely to work (Ak! I sound like my mother!) so that you can really enjoy your sick days doing something fun. :)

Wow! Spookie! #6 is the only difference between us!

Robin said...

#1, having your window open in a certain order is not a quirk, it is just good thinking.

But life without an ATM, AAACK!

Becky said...

Enjoyed your list. I'm a hopeless dog-earer when it comes to my books. Well, either that or lying them open on the page I last read. As for ATM's, I couldn't live without them...not when I can drive up to one and leave my toddler in his car seat while I use them (rather than hauling him inside the bank).

If they'd just do drive up grocery stores, I'd be set!

Tanya said...

Becky - I'm thinking drive up grocery stores will happen soon. You just e-mail your order and the next day its ready.

Jules - I made it safely, the roads weren't bad like everyone was expecting.

Rob - That is pretty scary. One of me is enough.

Robin - I might have used an ATM if I didn't have cash, but now its become a thing of pride. Maybe one day I'll become desperate.

Melissa said...

I'm not a big ATM user but I couldn't live without my debit card...and hey I get a free pot/pan every three months from using it...can't beat that!!

Sue said...

Hey Tanya, Thanks for stopping by my blog too. You have been a busy surfing blogger today!Looking forward to voting for you in 2020!
