The commercial building just next to home that has been vacant for years, it's official finally. It's going to become a Starbucks and a Sonics. That should be very convenient. Although now I kind of worried about the traffic and street parking.
Will you be able to get on their wifi? I have always wondered if people who live near someplace that has it can get it too.

Most of the Starbucks I've been to, I tend to be able to get their decent wifi anywhere maybe within 50 or so feet. McDonalds is usually even more. My home now, it's about maybe 100-200 ft from that vacant building. So I might possibly get a weak wifi signal perhaps, if it's like any other typical Starbucks wifi I've seen. But from what I notice lately, a lot of their wifi generally disconnects you after a certain time frame and you have to reconnect / re-login.

I also wonder if I can also order from home and get the Sonics cashiers to just roller skate my order across the street to my front door. 😅

Well, it seems like a lot of people do say they don't treat their workers well and there's probably more than a grain of truth to something you hear this often. Sometimes I wonder though. Do they mean that they treat their workers worse than anyone else or that they are such a huge and successful company that they could afford to treat their workers better than most companies do? It's hard to know without digging into it.

I am sure it is probably high pressure because of the tight tolerances of the type of business they do. I mean when someone orders something from Amazon, they expect a perfect experience every single time. So that's zillions of things all going on at the same time and every mistake matters. Like if someone doesn't get their package or it's a couple days late or something, the person most responsible will probably hear about it. But I don't know if it is really worse than anything else if you were to ignore the fact that it's Amazon and just look at it as a job that pays X amount.
Yea I hear bad things about having to piss in bottles and how if you make one mistake you'll get fired but no one is perfect and if that was the case there would always be new workers coming in or getting fired. So idk. Theres gotta be some truth with so many people saying bad things about it. I think it could be some of both as to why people say they treat their workers horribly. At least I did my research on whether I should work there or not.

One reason I won't ever order from Amazon cause of how crummy the workers get treated. 😒

I'm still slowly making progress on getting moved over to my new place. I was hoping to be close to done by now, but I've been busy with work lately.

Bill Gates is rejecting my advances, it might be because I'm a dude, but it still hurts. (I'm totally joking for those with double digit IQs)

I held a yellow ladybug for over an hour in the car yesterday. It was my little pet, and then I put it on a leaf outside when we got home after keeping it safe.

Work is getting piled on everyone at my job cause of the new changes. Maybe I'll get the hang of it but I legit thought about putting in my two weeks notice.

Another transaction stuck in hell. Hopefully doesn't take days like last time this happened. I got bills to pay right now.

My new table and chairs set ended up being discontinued. The coffee table set wouldn't be available until August at the earliest. And the couch? In stock and ready, but since I had to replace everything thing else, that particular style of couch really didn't go with the new stuff. So what I'm saying is that ended up going with completely different furniture than what I had initially ordered.

Not going to answer my mobile anymore if I don't recognise the number or it shows up unknown as lots of scams going around now. I got a call from "HMRC" again yesterday. 2 seconds of the recorded message played and I hung up.

I'm moving into a lower level in the complex next week so I don't have to carry big/heavy things up the stairs constantly.

Yea, I never answer my phone for anyone I dont recognize. If it's not work I dont answer. Those are the only calls I get that I know of I was told to answer every phone call, which sounds like BS to begin with cause no one is going to answer every single phone call. Also I leave my phone on mute at home cause I dont want to bother people with it and I leave it off if I'm going in public. So I always have it on mute.

Speaking of scams I hear there's rent scams going on around here. Someone here got scammed out of 1500. Another reason not to look for homes for rent.

Lots of squirrels have been frequenting around the front yard, likely trying to get to the bird's nest on the front yard tree. I still remember often throw rocks and my sister having made slingshots from found tree branches to scare away the squirrels from getting at our apple and apricot trees.

I'm guessing that you didn't buy that at Bradlees, Frank's, K-Mart, or Woolworth. Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia

I decided to hire a moving company to transfer all my stuff over. It's a lot easier on my back, and odds are that I wasn't going to find anyone to help me out. So that done.
