A lot of my pay stubs from working at Sears for four whole years.

When I tidy up from time to time I come across things as we usually do when we clean and/or make room for other things and to also throw out things that we no longer have use for.  While in the midst I came across a lot of my old pay stubs and realized that I’ve worked a lot of jobs between retail and within the health care field. I even came across an old report card from when I was a youngster marked with A grades and few B ones along with some certificates for achievement.

One of my pay stubs from working the hosiery department at JC Penney for an entire year

I am so proud of all of the accomplishments that I have made through out the years.

Two weeks ago a client at one of my jobs called up the private company that I work for acknowledging to my superiors that I was giving exceptional service and that she wanted me working more frequent days and I had accepted the offer when the company phoned me up with the news. This client also told me that I was too smart to be working the job, and I always get this same remark from people, “Why are you here, you’re too smart to be at this job whether it is in retail and the such.

One of my pay stubs from working at Bloomingdale’s for three years

Without going into certain details I expressed to the lady that phoned up my job about the jealousy from others and how within the past up until now how many had tried to interfere with my life yet I still succeeded but that how when I was a child I had the opportunity to be published by a mainstream publisher but that I mistakenly refused the offer due to my anger at what was going on in life at the time and at the trouble it would have caused during that time from a few envious/ jealous disturbed family members and outsiders that were working with them and etc… but that writing was my nature and where my heart truly was.

One of my schedules from Toys R Us

“Well no one can stand in your way now”, she told me. And she is correct.

She took down my full name and number wanting to keep in contact with me stating, “I want your full name because I know that you’re going to be a writer, well you are a writer”.

I told her, “I know what you mean, recognition”.

One of my schedules from Burlington

“Exactly”, she said I can tell and hear it in your voice that you’re a writer”. She has no doubt that I’ll eventually make it even further and neither do I!

No matter how many people have tried to hold me back through out my life I have managed to become very successful regardless in all of the things that I had set out to do. When anyone tries to stop me it just makes me hate them even more and makes me more determined to get what I want.

Free supplies notice I received when I adopted a new female Labrador Retriever in the year 2011

I remember when this guy by the name of George Owens (who always thought he was the smartest thing in the world and that he knew everything but was nothing but a dumb ignorant undesirable fuck who didn’t know what he was talking about who’d constantly gossip about everyone then go smile in their face) said “She can’t even do this”, talking about me doing the annual account for my mother who was conservator over my grandmother’s affairs years ago as my mother would ask him to do it once a year (he didn’t even know me personally or well enough to know what my capabilities were but I knew him as I could read him like a book and knew that one day he would get his and he sure has gotten his! I won’t mention what it is though as I have already discreetly mentioned it in a post last year).

And I thought that was interesting since the lawyer over my mother and another professional woman had stated that he didn’t know what he was doing as he kept getting it wrong every year. The annual account didn’t start getting done accurately until I became the one to complete it from then on and it was documented, we didn’t need him. The stupid ass George Owens even got arrested for tax evasion (http://queensda.org/Press%20Releases/2001%20Press%20Releases/03-March/03-21-2001.htm) he goes by a muslim name now. I’ve always filed and done my taxes completely on my own without the help of anyone every year. I’ll tell you, jealousy is a bitch.

As good people no matter what the circumstances we are the ones to come out on top when we are strong.

I don’t understand why people tried me within the first place and thought that they would get away with it. I was born under the zodiacal sign Taurus and one can’t mess with the bull without getting murdered or seriously injured.

Harmonic Truths

Standard

I am truly blessed and that comes along with being a very good person who has led a genuinely clean life within distinction and harmony within my own personal legitimate universe and spirituality, no one has anything on me and no one can and will ever be able to touch me because I am shielded and protected by much love, respect and authority (Divinity) just as many of us that are grounded within the foundation and truth of what “is” in relation to our own existence, journey, and destiny.

I love and enjoy having a peaceful life and never having to personally be bothered with undesirables although we as positive and/or anointed people have to here and there constantly by nature hold our own and defeat as well as fight up against the negative people and evil principalities as they both go hand and hand that we come into contact with in our profession or daily outings that is just an unfortunate part of life within this realm, however, we are equip for each and every battle.

Keeping busy and maintaining adequate amounts of rest while living my life requires harmonic balance and consistent faith in what will carry me through. It is so fantastic how when we are authentic and unwavering as individuals how it magnetically draws the continuance of a loyal sustaining ongoing natural energy of perseverance and advantage. With the never ending fortunate outcomes there is never any doubt as long as one never fails to defeat their own purpose within the definition that is unto them.

Spooky

Standard

This past Friday was payday:

I have plenty of experience with my departments of merchandising on the sales floor and with being in charge of storage rooms and I use to work overnight for three years at Bloomingdale’s in the shipping department where we would handle invoices, wrap, and pack expensive orders for shipment, the money that people would spend on items were ridiculous though, hundreds of dollars for teddy bears, cosmetics, and so on. I could see spending good money on the appliances and certain clothing but not that unnecessary shit like make-up and stuffed animals-not the money that they were spending.

Anyway, since I had experience with shipping and had enjoyed it I went to work at Fedex Ground and the money wasn’t bad $13.45 an hour. I was told I was going to be trained along with certain others to specifically work at new shipping departments (I forgot the name of the offices or place the manager had told me we were going to be training to go). So I put in for the night and overnight shift so I could do my other job on earlier days during the week but not too early.

When it was time to start work I was told only preload shift was available but when night and overnight became available I could change shifts.

Oh my, I had to be to work by 4am. Okay, no problem, I made the sacrifice since it was just temporary but then around the time in the morning when I had to travel the train wasn’t going to the stop that I needed to get off at to catch the bus to drop me off in front of Fedex so that meant getting off the train a few stops before to walk through abandoned buildings along deserted factory area around dangerous streets that one could get killed on if a car crashed upon the sides of the expressway and to top it off my spiritual antenna kept picking up negative energy and my body was reacting to the eerie vibrations around the area then when I’d get home I’d start seeing visions of the area foreboding me not to go back there.

Then I eventually found out soon after with my own eyes that the area was surrounded by more than one of large acres of cemetery the location burial of millions-literally one of the largest cemeteries in Queens. I was walking right into that shit and could feel it no one is telling me that place isn’t haunted.

Upon leaving my shift I found out that every day I’d have to take my boots off for security to check, my manager said that someone was caught stealing from there once and that everyone had to take their shoes off upon leaving. Sorry but I wouldn’t be doing that every day and what could be stolen from a giant warehouse full of packages that would fit into a pair of sneakers, shoes, or boots? I had a good laugh off that one especially since we had to come in and out through metal detectors.

If one wasn’t working with the cash why does everyone working as package handlers have to take off theirs shoes. I left all that shit alone and have no particular complaints right now with my other job.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Day In The Life Of A Working Lady

Standard

When I finally left Toy R Us back in May of this year as I told a representative at the corporate office that I wanted to resign I had already had another job working at Burlington Coat Factory.

When I got hired at Burlington it wasn’t for the position that I had initially applied for (just like at Toys R Us nobody really wanted to do that job) the desperate bitch manager named Ruth explained to me that she was going to put me in the fitting room to work because none of the other previous fitting room attendants were able to meet audit for an entire year so I was suppose to be the new slave to put to the test and use? I don’t think so!

I wasn’t like the other worthless trashy flunky bitches (Marilyn Bartnick, Johanna Jackson and Latima Hall) that needed to be there. And I am darn sure not anybody’s ass kisser. All three of those inferior bitches tried to start trouble with me yet I ignored them as Ruth had stated “LaToya, your working with a bunch of women, just keep your mouth shut”.

I do understand that “average” jealous women do get catty and petty but not “real” women-“classy women” of intelligence and purpose don’t have time for nonsense. All we care about is being happy and taking great care of ourselves and optimistically preparing different things for our pleasant futures.

Johanna got mad because I expressed to Marilyn how I caught her sad and obvious attempt to sabotage my work-not that working in a fitting room is serious duty-however to people of that nature they don’t know what real work is so Johanna failed at her intention to make me look incompetent at a job that I was far overqualified for.

It reminded me of when I was one of the top workers at Sears about five years ago and after having working there for four years straight a few envious employees tried to mess up my work to get me into trouble, little did the stupid asses know that there were hidden cameras back there in the storage room where I was in charge of, and they were the ones that the head manager penalized. They had to clean up everything that they had intentionally unorganized.

Ruth told me that she knew I was doing everything that I was suppose to do (because she claimed she could see from afar, hidden cameras I assumed, because security also claimed that they knew everything going on within the area too) but that I just needed to speed up on my task of overloaded volumes of clothing that were being returned back to the store on a day to day basis and at the same time organize clothes to go back onto the sales floor while cleaning out and up after the fitting room as customers were nasty and constantly stacking up extra clothing. She wanted me to do all that shit within a short time every day so that she could make audit and take credit? That bitch must have been out of her fucking mind!

The real truth of it all is that they were always backed up due to the fact that they were too cheap to hire other people to fill out other positions I had heard other employees complaining of the excess areas of work that were being stacked upon them (one person bombarded with the impossible unless one was going to fuck up the work just to get it done within a hurry).

Latima, a literally bald headed bitch with no hair that was barely on the scalp, had the nerve to come to work with a thick long weave the next day after sporting her natural no hair style. This girl is so hideous looking as those are usually the ones to start conflict and she knew that she was ugly because she’d come to work with globs of make up on and still looked bad she got mad at me for doing work that another employee told me to do that she claimed she was going to do then accused me of lying about being told by the other worker to do so.

It was all a set up, silly shit that I ignored, and she made a scene because I would not give her the reaction that she was looking for I never understood why trash thought people should fear them they need to get off of their insecurities as they are absolutely nothing to fear. A customer was even disgusted by her and told me to report her as she was so unprofessional.

The next day Latima didn’t come into work so I told the woman named Karen who was in on the lie that “I come here to work and not for no bullshit” then she got scared and started kissing my ass because she knew she was guilty.

The day after that Ruth calls me into her office because she was disappointed because after a little over a month employed there I wasn’t being the flunky that she hoped and planned that I would be by working me like a damn dog and getting me to do what she wanted when she wanted and said to me “If you don’t speed it up in two more weeks then you’re out the door”.

I said to her, “Will you give me another position in the store since things are not happening fast enough for you?”

“No”, Ruth said.

“I’m leaving now because I’m an excellent worker”, I told her as I refuse to let anyone control me by threats of any kind just to keep a job. I can find work anywhere unlike the others that she had stranded there and wrapped around her finger.

“Okay”, Ruth got mad and said. “I’m going to terminate you out the system right now”. However she lied because she didn’t terminate me right then and there. She hadn’t expected me to come out with what I did. I have too much self esteem and self confidence to stay and tolerate bullshit-she thought she was a bitch-she didn’t know me very well because I can ultimately be the definition of a real bitch!

Instead of actually terminating me within the system I received a new hire benefits bullshit sent to my email later that day:

Warning/Beware

Standard

Words of caution: In trying to hurt the good people the no good only hurt themselves we are fiercely protected in every way by a higher power. And we are in no way whatsoever effected by the small traffic scattered down below we ride above on bigger planes heading in clear view.

Life is no joke and I have said many times that logic cannot be explained to sick people and I have seen life teach these kinds of people the most harsh lessons when their times called for it.

I have to honestly say that my life is doing very well I am truly happy within myself and it never took me a long time to get there I’ve always been secure within my state of being since at a very early age so I don’t relate when I’ve heard others say “it takes a long time to get there” as they speak only for themselves while generalizing within their own personal life and/or experience.

I have so much peace I have all of the things that I need, I laugh every day, I am doing very well on my job as usual and I am shocked that my boss recently revealed high praise and compliments to me regarding my work and performance as I and a few others didn’t think that he seemed to appreciate us.

Some have already waken up but what some folk still don’t seem to understand is that you can’t go around messing with spiritual people and not eventually reap the consequences.

A message came to me a few weeks ago that I got the best of all of my enemies and that they feel that it is just no use in getting the results that they want. It also came to me how they wish that I was and how they want me to become trash and that was never a secret to me because they always envied my character.

As a person genuinely born with a caul there is not really too much that anyone can do around me without me knowing about it especially when it caters to me and my life it has always been that way that is just something that certain people like me are naturally inherited with by birth and something that we are very blessed with, and it is nothing to take lightly or for us to take for granted.

When we keep quiet about or do not mention certain things it does not mean that we’re not aware of those situations and/or happenings.

It is no secret that individuals often get angry at us for “knowing things” and for being wise in ways that they definitely do not appreciate, however, that is absolutely not my problem.

I woke up again this morning after having a dream about Danielle and how some of the affiliated people around her (no one of any importance just her lame personal associates as she is a flunky) are on the internet trying to pose as me in posting and commenting online ( or just making up shit or both) as a way to get back at me for speaking the truth about her and Bibi on the job in the recent past. And as disappointing to them as this may sound it is really useless if they think or feel that this nonsense will have any effect or impact within my life if anything it is really more enlightening.

People of trash have always been jealous and envious of me ever since I was a little girl and have always told lies on me and it has never affected me or stopped me from being happy within myself or succeeding in whatever it was that I wanted to do, of course, that is why witchcraft was used for so long within the past to attempt to make me look bad within the public eye, to cause blockages within all aspects of my life and to destroy me as that is usually what pathetic people resort to against others that have something wonderful going on for them within life.

Yet they cannot use their witchcraft anymore as an aide in seeking the illusions and delusions of deceit to appear as a false reality in order to manipulate circumstance and the perceptions that others have upon their targets.

That witchcraft shit never worked on me. And now they’re totally on their own even though they still try to work spells and bring the witchcraft back but it is to no avail I am much more powerful and certainly much stronger within spirit and personality my enemies are all weak that is why they cannot move on, band together, and continue on.

Why would an army of garbage have to come up against one or two people for so many years unless that individual was a threat and why would it take so many to come up against one person? It is all explanatory within itself. It is not easy to take down individuals like me.

And what is really absurd is all of this went on through word of mouth none of these people ever met me, sat down and had a conversation with me, and it is so strange how they tried to ruin someone who never did anything to them yet that is what evil does-attack the good.

Trash have gotten away with bringing good people down for so many years through their underhanded tactics that they have finally come across one that they could not get over on.

It only adds extra credence to the fact that these types of individuals are innately incapable of elevating within the mind only to remain within that tremendously low level of function and understanding and their actions are a sincere reflection of themselves.

It is constantly the same things with them: talking about and lying about other people-who cares? The shit is tired! All this shows is that this is what bothers them and what brings them down in return they use this method on others assuming that they would be hurt in the same fashion that they themselves feel wounded.

No, I am sorry it does not work like that with me and those of us that are not of that nature and insufficient mentality. Yes, we are aware and we do watch our backs but we do not sit around thinking or worrying about the lies that ignorant and sick people spread about us and we damn sure don’t care about what any of them may have to say.

That is surly a dark place to be in what a miserable world that my enemies live in where they have no true self esteem where gossip rules and reigns within their world where the thoughts and actions of others either make or break them where what is important to them in their fallacy is bullshit within our own genuine reality.

See, they don’t even realize what they constantly show this is not shit that will harm us but this is the kind of shit that they actually show others in which in how to destroy them.

They are ridiculous within every sense of the word.

We live and are rooted within truth and can see above and beyond the scope as we are in tune to nature and to our surroundings we are productive beings serving our purpose, survivors climbing to higher planes, adventurers who welcome challenge and winners that thrive within the universe.

We are not confined or limited, we do not fear, and we are definitely not afraid to be authentic within our selves.

 

Dirty People

Standard

I spent a long day at work yesterday getting a lot done and cordially interacting with the customers and not too long before I was about to end my shift Danielle coincidentally paged me for an update on what I was working on as it was just about time for me to leave and while we were standing at the customer service area a customer that I remember had come to me earlier inquiring about an item approached.

I remember directing him toward the location to where the product was located but I had forgotten what it was that he had wanted because I had dealt with so many people during the entire day but I asked him if he’d found what he was looking for.

He replied to me that he had and with anger in his voice he told me with Danielle standing right next to me as she was helping out another customer that “Yeah, that Bibi, she don’t know nothing about nothing, but she’s supposed to be an assistant manager, huh? I asked her to go and get me the manager of the store and she told me that there is no manager but I know that is a lie”, he concluded as he was obviously pissed off, he was furious by the confrontation that he’d had with Bibi and her attitude and substandard performance toward him.

Danielle kept quiet. I told him that I would go and get the manager for him and I went and did so and while I did it seemed like I was getting a mild interrogation from the store manager on the situation with getting questions asked of me such as “What happened, how did you know about it and why didn’t you help him?”

After I’d told him that there was a customer that was very upset and had acknowledged to me that he had inquired from the assistant manager to see the store manager and that she told him there was no store manager. I explained to him that I didn’t know the entire details to what went on as I had nothing to do with it and that I knew the customer because he had come to me earlier on and that I asked him if he’d found the item that he was looking for all I did was direct him toward the area of the product when he had asked me about it, the man didn’t seek any other assistance from me other than that.

It appeared to me as if the store manager was just really disappointed because I was there in present to witness another personal complaint by another in regard to Bibi’s negative attitude and unprofessional behavior. I bet if I was the one who had gotten into the confrontation if would have been just fine and if I had of been in the many complaints of Bibi’s track record I’m sure that I would have been gone just out of spite because I am one of the good ones.

I genuinely and generally never get into disputes with customers it is unnecessary and if it were to happen it would not be of any of my intentional doing as through out life we all come into contact with various types of people bearing all modes of disposition that is just part of life and nothing to be penalized for we just have to use our brains, ability and experience to handle the situation within the best manner possible while attending to perform our responsible duty in the workplace.

When one is sick and/or abusing their authority within the workplace and they keep getting away with it because it will be covered up by fellow colleagues that is an entirely different story.

A week ago, the store manager summoned me and other coworkers at the store into his office for a routine update for us employees in regard to our job requirements and on the ongoing improvement within our customer service to give the customer the best experience possible when they come into the store and we were given a document to sign our names to it as in agreement toward those reasonable goals.

And our manager expressed and explained to us that it is okay and that we will not be found at fault to interrupt our assignments when need be in order to take out the time to help the customers no matter how frequent they may require assistance.

Yesterday the store manager brought to me the same documents and I had said to him “Didn’t we go over this already?” And he said yes but that these reprinted documents now had each of us employee names written on them so that he could hang them all upon the break-room walls with our signatures on them so I resigned the paper.

As associates and team members actually adhering and abiding to professionally accomplish a goal set by ethics, Bibi-even though she didn’t get her position honestly-as assistant manager should be setting an example instead of contributing to a problem.

Whereas certain other members of staff are doing a much better job at being decent and productive toward the service of the customer and work environment it sure is interesting how the same code of conduct doesn’t have to apply to a corrupt member within a managerial position.

Soul Food

Standard

powdered-cakeThis past Friday, Sunday and Monday which was yesterday I enjoyed a nice and wonderful day at work doing my occupational activities and so far everything was professional as it should be and that is the way that I like it; to go to work enjoying what I do with no bullshit just doing good business, providing sufficient performance and helping out the customers as they need and inquire none of us that are genuinely productive and constructive and that mean well have any time for nonsense just peace and contentment.

When I got off the job I went straight to the neighborhood grocery to pick out some items and was so delighted to come across a great quality non dairy plant-based buttery spread that I had heard of and a non dairy vegan/vegetarian cheddar style cheese that I hadn’t paid attention to even notice was stocked there in that supermarket for as long as I have been going there. Now I don’t have to go out of my way or spend a fortune to buy my certain other non dairy items to indulge in as they are at a reasonable price and nearby location.

powdered-sweetsMy day was made after I left that supermarket as I love to eat and live healthily it is just exciting to me to know there are so many foods becoming more available for the vegan and vegetarian lifestyle to choose from. I love my soy meat (textured soy protein that I deliciously discovered years ago back in the early nineties) I love my very vanilla non dairy soy milk, vanilla non dairy ice cream and non dairy alternative cheese and butter all made from plants, fruits, vegetables and vegetable oils.

Our own personal environment and lifestyle play a significant role within keeping our aura/energy field as well as mind, body, and spirit maintained, unaffected and protected against negativity and darkness and that livelihood comes natural when we are in tune to the universe within our own specific innate tendency.
