Let's start with the illogical...
I go to fill my tank cuz the van is on E. I slid my Visa in and out the slot and followed the normal pay at the pump protocol. The little tab thing was set so I didn't have to manually hold the pump as the gas flowed. As I was talking to Pooka, I heard the pump slow down like I had pre paid for the gas and the amount was reaching the price I paid. Then it stopped at $50 on the dot. I knew that my tank was going to take more that $50 considering I was on E, so I unlatched the tab thing and manually squeezed...nothing happened. Even when the pump stops itself it will keep going a bit when you squeeze again, but not this time. I hung the pump up and went inside. Before I could finish asking what the deal was the man behind the counter told me that Visa started this new thing where you can only get 50 bucks worth of gas at at time. If I needed more gas I would have to insert my card again. WTH? He also told me that this will start happening at all the gas stations when I use my Visa to pay! This don't make no sense! Has anybody anywhere other than NC have this happen to them yet. Visa just started this recently and I wonder if it's just and NC thing. Hmph!
Now the possibly fabulous!
The PT aide at the hospital found out yesterday that she got into PA school...which means a certain blogger has officially landed a job. Me and the aide walked into the gym together talking about how she found out and the HNIC (head n***a in charge, who's white) was treating a patient. She said to me...
"you hear about *insert aides name"
"yeah, that's so cool"
"you still want the job" (I blogged a few weeks ago about her asking me the first time)
*me acting like she never asked before**gasp*"yeah"
"well it's yours in August" (she or nobody else knows the aide's leaving sooner)
"where do I need to be, what time, and where do I sign?" (her patient laughed at me)
"talk to *insert aides name* about it and we'll talk later"
The possibly part comes in because the current aide is leaving towards the end of Juneish. Her lease is up on 6/30, hence being the logical choice to leave the job some time around then. The end of June-early July is when I'll be in my second session of summer courses taking Anatomy and Physiology II over. I can't do both and work 40 hours. Then in the Fall I take Physics and I can work the 40 if she let's me leave and come back during the day. Me and the current aide were talking and she said the HNIC might be cool with the fall thing, but to really try to work out the summer thing. At the moment I am going to see if I can find a place to take A&P II in late May or June. Since it's not an NCCU graduation requirement to take it again I can take that course somewhere else. I only need it to satisfy Duke's PT program.
I was just telling Snookums (yeah he's talking to me now, but he's still a tad mad) about me floating around waiting for something to happen and BOOM!
Good stuff my friends, good stuff.
