Oh Canada.... wrong with people from Canada? Okay, okay, I'll apologize in advance to all of my loyal Canadian readers. In fact, instead of getting mad at me for writing this post, go sit down and think about how bad you bumbled the opening ceremonies of the Olympics. That should keep you busy for a while.

Seriously, anytime we get a call at work from Canada, we all groan. It never fails, they're always mad about something. The main problem is from people who live in 3 places:

Medicine Hat
Red Deer
Moose Jaw

Yes, those are actual cities in Canada. You would be an angry person if you lived in Moose Jaw. They're always yelling about something. Also, why do people from Canada act like the entire planet knows about Canada. The first time I said zip code instead of postal code I thought I saw my life flash before my eyes. Have you seen their Postal codes anyways??? It's like trying to read a license plate....very confusing. And don't even think about pronouncing the city Regina like Regeena.....everytime, they will correct you in a very rude tone: it's RegIIIIna.

The other day this guy was arguing with me over the phone.....not so shocking. He was upset with how we do certain things in our company. Let me assure you, he was in the wrong. It would take too long to explain, but he was wrong. After talking about this issue for a while he said, "you guys need to stop Mickey Mousing it around there" (don't ask, I don't know what that means)
Then he says, "where is your company located? America? Figures...."
I was thinking, seriously Mr. America Jr.? SO RUDE!!
So whenever I start talking to someone over the phone and I hear them say "aboot"...I know I'm in for trouble. Just saying....

Lastly, Serena is dominating the French Open. Thank goodness.

Laser tag

Yeah yeah, I never blog anymore. I'm gonna have to ask you to deal with it. All I do is work work work anyways, so there isn't anything that exciting going on.

However, I've become addicted to laser tag lately. It's a new addition to the new Nickelcade. And I don't care how little the kids are that I'm playing. The smaller the better...they make easy targets. Last night was our 3rd time playing. My team dominated of course. If you haven't tried it you should. There's smoke, lights,'s really cool.
Also, you should see me and Jess collect tickets. We know exactly which machines to use, and we don't waste time. All the little kids just stare at our stash of tickets when we walk by. Occasionally we'll just give the tickets away...but we work hard for our slap bracelets and toy guns, so not usually. Ha ha ha. Anyways, that's all for now.
