Finally! Friday!!!

Posted on Oct 10, 2014

Yahoooooo!!! It’s finally Friday!!! I just noticed that on my site I have two posts titled Oct 10th; clearly I am in need of a weekend…

I don’t rejoice for the same reason as probably most of you – you probably have regular jobs and stuff. But for me, I celebrate Friday because tomorrow I don’t have to make lunches, get kids off to school, or be at my radio 7 times per day. Woot!!!

Thank you to CC who sent me a beautiful card and a lovely, ever-so-thoughtful gift! It included two $5 bills for my kids, who were THRILLED to bits!!! Plus some Entertainment Book coupons which I LOVE and will certainly use – I used to buy a book each year but haven’t bought one in a few years because it was hard to use it with little kids in tow. Now I will use them for SURE! Plus there was a $100 Visa gift card – SWEEEEEEET!!! I spent it paying for my daughter’s Comedy Class at the community center – she is UBER shy so I am hoping it brings her out of her shell a bit. Fingers crossed! I had been really worrying about paying that bill – they could kick us out at any time if I didn’t pay up. So thank you C for taking that worry off my plate. Now to figure out something by Tuesday for preschool… LOL! It never ends…

Not much different for today, except the code word on Zed. And new songs on the Win at Work calendar. Speaking of Jack (yes I was!), they have caused me quite some concern this past week.

1) someone won $100 with No Time to Google, and when they were asked if they wanted to play again the next day for $200, they said yes. Turns out, they weren’t able to play the next day (or didn’t want to, or whatever) and sent Jack a tweet, email, and Facebook message at 6:30am – a half hour before the game is played. I saw that tweet that morning, and just figured they had another commitment. So Jack took two new players, and carried on. Alas, they are now saying that because the person decided NOT to play for $200, they weren’t going to pay the original $100 (which was won fairly and squarely!) WTF?!?! That makes me so mad – why wouldn’t they pay it?! Yes, I know their budget is small, but to be fair, the money was won. Period. You can’t take it back – nowhere in the rules does it say “you can’t have your money if you change your mind”. Does it???

2) they called someone’s name for Win at Work at 8:21am, and I tracked them down at 8:44. They called 604-872-2557 immediately, so no later than 8:46. They had until 8:51 to call and ask for Donna, but no one answered at 8:46. Or 8:47, 8:48, 8:49, or 8:50. No one answered until after 9, which is when the office opens, at which point they were told “sorry, you called too late”. WHAAAAAAT?!?! So the promotions person sat at the phone until 8:45 and decided that was long enough? Went to the bathroom? Ran out for a coffee? Couldn’t figure out the phone system? What?! If you call someone’s name at 8:21, that person has 30 minutes to call back. THIRTY MINUTES!!! Sure, it was only $100, but that’s a week’s worth of nice lunch breaks! She WANTED that money!!!

I’m feeling more than a little annoyed at Jack (and by Jack I mean Phil). Ordinarily, I am a HUGE fan of Phil – love his commercials, love his whole schtick. But right now I’m irked that he’s making Jack look bad. That $200 is NOT going to break the bank – pay those people what they are owed and don’t be a douche… (still love Jack, but like any man, sometimes they annoy me.)

Let’s move on.

Today is the last day of Peak it Forward (thank christ!) and Meredith gives away a trip to Anaheim today. Yaaay! Also, I think the trip for the draw to NY will be done this morning on LG104.3. Fun!! I’m not in any draws but good luck to all of you that are!

You will have 3 chances to win a Dell laptop computer from The Shopping Channel – watch Breakfast Television at 6:05, 7:05, and 8:05 to get the details. And watch it anyway – best morning show in BC!

Watch JRFM’s Facebook page this week for a Value Village post. Come up with a cool costume using the props they give you, and they will choose a winner of $100 to spend at Value Village. Firstly, I love, love, LOVE Value Village – I was already there and picked up Halloween costumes for my kids. Secondly, I love the creativity this contest inspires!
