"HELLO... EARTH TO DORIS!!!"

Well, if you look back to posts from Summer '06, you'll find that I'm no rookie when it comes to working in the fireworks business. Since I'm working full-time at the Dermatologist office, I worked a few nights doing PRE-orientation work. Getting papers and trinkets together that were to be handed out. Orientation fortunately landed on a Monday, which is our day off, so I was also able to help out at the actual event. People from all over Georgia that are selling fireworks come to the orientation to get their supplies (cash registers, tents, fireworks, etc.) so that they are prepared for the week of July 4th. The most interesting people come to this orientation. People of all different shapes, colors and false teeth sets. To make the day a little more interesting for myself I decided to put DORIS on my name tag. I guess in honor of Grandma Salmon. I worked at the registration table, so I'd tell people to make their name tags, and I'd hand them their designated folder for their specific selling area. These folders were filled with contracts, papers, and extra name tags for when they sell. Some people would say "Thanks Doris!" And I would smile really big. On one occasion, a man was apparently talking to me for quite some time and eventually said to me with a raised voice "HELLLLOOOO.... EARTH TO DORIS..." And I just started laughing. My dad snapped these lovely pictures of me after arriving home at 1:30am. a 14 hour work day. I don't recommend it.

I didn't reread the post...there were TONS of mistakes...I've been up for a few hours trying to get a project completed before I head into the office...ANYWAY, what I said was...I think I'm going to use "DORIS" as my name at restaurants when they want to yell something to tell you your food's ready to be picked up....maybe this is the beginning of a trend. Way to go Sara!!

I may be over stepping my boundaries but that comment by lolo is a tad bit creepy. That she is obsessed with you, yes, but more so that she says it to you repeatedly. Is a restraining order in order?
