"Started From the Bottom and Now We are Here"

Past me had no idea times would be crazier now, then what I had fictionally written.

Last year I took part in a public speaking class where we learned how to write and perform speeches with confidence. For the final task we had to write a fictional celebratory speech and well..lets just say that past me had no idea our future would be less crazier then what I wrote.


My fellow American’s it is with a quick reminder that I should tell you it is now time to put on your required Stunna Shades as regulated by our new president. I’ll let you do that just now. Please no smiling or laughing it ruins our country’s tough guy persona.

Thank you, ladies and gentleman as your new Vice President let me just say that is an honor to be up here today and being gifted my new job at the White House or as it will soon be renamed the Kwhite House, by our first lady’s doing. It will be nice to have another "Kennedy" here again!

As of 6 years ago your president announced his run for candidacy at an awards show. People laughed, people mocked but now as you can see we started from the bottom and now we are here.

I truly decided that this was the man I wanted to work for when he hopped on stage one day, during another awards show, saying that "Beyonce’s video was the best of all time, all time"! And I agreed with him, that it was the greatest video of all time, all time!

I also saw courage to hop on the stage and determination to take that microphone away from, now Secretary of State, Taylor Swift, as you can see they have made up. What I saw was a man who could one day lead our country to greatness and now on this day we gladly inaugurate him into our government for the year 2020. My fellow American’s please help me in introducing Mr. President Kanye West.

7 Ways To Avoid Pissing Off Your Cashiers

We're nice people until we have to repeat ourselves to our customers.

We have all been to grocery shopping or shopping for clothes. Have you ever felt like you were pissing off your cashier? Maybe you were.

Cashiers get pissed or upset pretty easily. For demanding customers to ignorant ones. They all come and go. There are a few that we like to see. Some of our regulars are our favorites

If you don’t wanna make your cashier mad, don’t do these things.

1. Tell your phone number unless asked.

If a store has a rewards card please either wait till we ask for it already have it out. If you don’t have one in hand wait till we ask for your phone number. Just don’t assume we are ready to hear the number. Because more than likely we are not ready.

2. Don't get mad at us.

We don't make up the rules. We just follow them. Just because it doesn't ring up the way you want it doesn't mean it is actually on sale. It could be a sale from last week we forgot to take down.

3. We don't like explaining ourselves more than once.

If you can't get it the first time why even bother trying to hear it a second time. It's a waste of breath and time. Please listen to what we have to say.

4. Get off your phone.

How would you like it if your cashier was on the phone while ringing up your items? It's bad enough when you don't have your rewards card ready or just fire it out like we are ready. It is also rude and inconsiderate when you are on the phone at checkout.

5. Don't dig your purse or that coupon that for whatever

Some stores have to keep certain IPMS (items per minute) and when you rummage for that stuff you run that little meter up.

6. Don't complain to us about something you previously bought.

Yes, it is typical for customers to complain but we can't do anything about it. The person to complain to is customer service because they know how to fix.

7. Read the sales...

Come on people. How hard is it to read? Yea things can be buy one get one, but read and see if that is true because it could be buy 2 get 1.

Cashiers are really nice people we love all our customers but sometimes the things they do make us upset.
