i really have no idea what this has to do with survival skills

Actually she has identifying which plants and berries are poisonous. She was quizzing herself. It’s foreshadowing because she later dies from eating poisonous berries; in the book, it’s seen as a foolish mistake, but because of this scene, it has implications of suicide. 

Holy shit

Well the Hunger Games just became even more devastating than it already was.

I always did wonder why the ‘smartest’ one died from something she should have known about… This makes a lot more sense now.

I thought about this. What if she knew Peeta picked poison berries and ate them herself as a warning. She basically saw everything from a great distance, she was smart to watch and track the couple down without being seen. So she had to see Katniss and how far she was away from Peeta. But didn’t want to die by someone killing her without a warning either of them?

When a rude customer is a little girl

I’m working on a shelf and this little girl is telling her mom that she wants a certain type of syrup (Grade A Maple). But her mother knows she wants the sweeter kind so she grabs the Grade B. This little girl starts to complain, looking through her cell phone to prove her mother wrong.

The mother is a simple lady. The type to please her daughter but still wanting to make sure she gets the right product. She comes to me and asked if Grade A was sweeter. I tell her its sweet but Grade B is sweeter. She brings her daughter back to me and asks me to explain to her. So I started to explain and this little brat is taking a selfie of herself in front of her mother and I.

They walk away and I work on my shelf again.

It must have been twenty minutes later and the mother is back to find something on my aisle. Her daughter won’t shut up. Shes complaining that they have been in the store too long. Her mother pulls out a bottle of buffalo sauce and is super excited that it had xylitol instead of sugar. I smiled because she smiled. Then my smile disappeared as distress fell upon her face. Her daughter screamed, and I quote “I DON’T WANT TO BUY THAT!”

Enough is enough. “She’s buying that! Not you” They both looked at me shocked. Her mother asked what I said, “I said she is buying that. Not you. She is buying that with her own money.” The mother smiles and comes to me and explains her excitement of the product in her hand, and I smiled again. Her daughter comes up to me, “we have no use for it!” the mother explains she is a vegetarian. “Yeah, I’m a vegetarian, I mean what else can you put buffalo sauce on other then chicken” with a snide tone. “Well you can put it on a burger, or pizza or fries, I put it on my rice sometimes” I replied calmly. “Well I don’t want it sweet” she replied quickly. “Its not sweet, they just replaced the high fructose corn syrup with xylitol. All buffalo sauce have some form of sugar,” I gave a face of triumph. “FINE! But paying for it, is useless”

The mother at this point frowned. And I helped her out, for her troubles I gave it to her for free. It took a while for her to understand, because of her broken english, but when she understood she thanked me and called me a saint.

Her snide daughter just asked her why she was thanking me. I told her that they would try the sauce for free. A evil smirk came across this little girls face. She turned to me “Thank You” and then turned to her mother “You’re WELCOME!”

I reached my boiling point.

"NO! I didn’t do this for you. I did this for your mother. You don’t say "You’re Welcome" to your mother. You say "Thank You."" I shut this little girl down. And her mother let me do it. "You need to respect your mom. She cares for you and makes sure she looks at all the ingredients so you can stay eating vegetarian. You don’t respect her or me, and don’t you even say a word about it. You were taking a selfie with your phone when I was trying to explain to you earlier about the maple syrup. You need to pay attention to your mother because she has your best interest!"

The daughter stuttered trying to rebuttle, she clenched her phone hard and her mother placed her hands around her shoulder. She smiled at me and said thank you.

The Universe is playing a cruel game

My car didn’t pass smog the first time. Second time I was praying hard and it passed. Just before the state had to take my car. Seriously all month I’ve been worrying. Didn’t have money for all the OEM parts because both my dogs were sick =(
Still going to fix it. Need EGR valve =(

I was suppose to be a team educator for my department the first month of employment at work. But wasnt voted on to the team in time. The day I was voted in, was the day after the posting closed for team Educator. Now I signed up to be a Supervisor at work. Training wasn’t set up right. And at the end of the week I was notified that they didn’t want to interview. Even though I had 5 years grocery experience, it wasn’t 5 years grocery experience with this company. BUT then they chime up how they were going to give me the Team Educator position……the one they were suppose to give me. OH and to top it off they forgot to mention that I’m holding a class for customers about our product….a week before the day….great honor and all but I would have liked to prep two weeks in advance. Now after they didn’t hire any of the 5 people they interviewed they want me to go for supervisor again……

Just feel like I’m on a yoyo of emotion.
