Our local grocery store, Schnucks, is having a wine tasting on 03/24/09. They had one a while back, and I missed it. So, I made note of the date, and saw a sign that one had to SIGN up for the event. HMMMMMM. Sign up for a grocery store tasting? I wandered back to the customer service desk to sign up, and who would happen to be there? The customer service MANAGER and the store MANAGER!! The customer service manager is the one I would hint aggressively to about son #1 applying for a job there. He got an interview and then PFFFTTTTT. Nothing.
I thought that MAYBE she'd mention my son while I was signing up for the wine tasting and since the STORE manager was there....and he interviewed my son, we could segue right into when he could start!!! You know?
So, the store manager began RAVING about how fun the wine tastings are. They bring in a wine expert from Schnucks, and the featured company wine expert and put tablecloths on their deli booths (sexy, right??). They have different 'courses' and pair wines with the foods. Well, I signed up leisurely---hoping that somehow the conversation would turn from wine to my kid.
I had a lovely conversation about the wine tasting, was acting overly thrilled to have signed up and secretly wishing I could think of a way to bring up my son and his interview on my own!!
The store manager wandered off and the customer service manager and I exchanged final pleasantries, and I ran into the store manager dude again as he was straightening up cereal boxes!! I just jumped right in with "I noticed your name tag earlier when we were talking and I do believe you recently interviewed my son for a job!!!!" *looking earnest* He politely asked his name, etc. He remembered the interview and the fact the kid took some sort of personality test, but apparently the open job was filled by a checkout operator that wanted more hours. **sigh**
He said the application would remain on file, yada yada yada......but apparently things didn't go my way regarding getting the kid a JOB there!!
So, now I have a date to attend a wine tasting, and will still be paying for my kid's gas and entertainment money.
On another note, I got another shipment of mineral makeup today. Can I just say OMG!!!! It's called 'Pink Diamonds' and the Bare Essentuals people put together a beautiful pink package of perky makeup!! I can't wait to try it. I'll get another shipment in June called Canary Diamonds, and a final one in September called 'Black Diamonds' (Let's hope it's not gearing towards the GOTH look). I CAN'T WAIT.
The kitchen is painted and picked up. Let's see if we can KEEP it that way.
Toodles for now my leprechaun buddies!!
p.s I am sorry for being so neglectful of late.
