I used  to  work in  Customer Services  in a large  supermarket, I had  to deal  with  all sorts of  complaints, difficult  customers, visitors  and  queries… Not  mention  take orders  for  party  food  and  cakes  and  at  Christmas, Turkeys  and  Geese! Easy  one hand  tied  behind your  back  stuff!

Well  you  would  not  believe some of  the  daft  things   we had  to  deal  with. EG : Lady  wearing  Barbour  Jacket  and  headscarf  throws any  empty  egg carton  at  me . ” These  eggs  all cracked  when I  boiled  them ”  she screeched at  me! I  replied  that  eggs  do crack  when  they are boiled occasionally. WRONG!  I will not  bore  you  with  what  happened  next  but in  the  end I gave  her  a refund  and  another  box  of  eggs! I also had  to  smile at  her  and apologise  for  her inconvenience??

Another  day  a woman  came up  to  the  desk  and told  her  husband  had  been in  at  the weekend  and  a cashier  has been  rude  to him. I asked if she had  the receipt so I could  see which cashier  had  served him. …. Imagine  my  delight  when  she handed  me  a bill  for  a Tesco’s … I  smiled  sweetly  and  said  sorry  madam  but  the  incident  did  not happen here.

I got  thing’s  wrong  too, one  evening  we were  checking  the returns  .. ” who  dealt  with  this prepacked  Colli ” the  supervisor  asked, I said  I had. “what  did  you  do  for  the customer ” she  asked  sounding  irritated. I told her  I  had  done  as always  given her  a replacement  and a refund. She  almost  smiled. “Great , they  are  from Marks  and Spencer’s”  we  did  all chuckle !

I  won’t  go on  but  below  is  an Acrostic  Nonet   about  the  time  a man  came in  and  thrust a bunch of  flowers into my  face. ” They  don’t  smell,  they are  seven days  old  and  were guarantied for ten day. ”  … what could I  do  apart  from smile?  Yes  a  refund  and  a new bunch of  flowers!

Acrostic Nonet  Complaint.

Can you  help me  these flowers don’t smell

Only had  them seven days see

My wife’s so disappointed

Please do something for me

Let’s see what  to do

Are  you  happy

If I give

New buds

Thanks!

This  is  a photo  of  the  interior  of  the  best  Gite  we  have  ever  stayed in  in Normandy. I put  an antique   blush on  the photo.

This  is  a view  of  the  kitchen  in  the  Gite.  I  put  an antique  colour  boost  on  this  one.

These  are  stairs inside a  church in Normandy. I  put  a  red blush on  them  because  I  had  seen  what  Dale  had  done  with  a  red  blush  on  some  stairs and it  really  took my  imagination!

Impenetrable Acrostic 

I stand lost and frightened

Menace surrounds me like walls

Pacing back and forth I am trapped

Echoes of hate like foot falls

No hope left , giant rocks are all I see

Even the light is like a steel barrier

Trapped no way over no way out for me

Restless night mares hold me down

All is dark and there are no doors to see 

Barbed edges  rip my skin, keeping me down

Loneliness  has  me in  it’s hold

Everything  is impenetrable I am locked in

Today it time again for RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #132 Flame&Kiss

Rules and Pingback here

The flame licked her feet

Screaming she asked God for help

He soothed with a kiss

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The flame of passion

Engulfed them like fire and oil

Glorious first kiss

Sunrise exploded

Like a flame it kissed the earth

Celebrating dawn.

Song Lyric Sunday. Parent Child Relationship.

This week Helen Espinosa of This Life One Word At A Time said : our theme for Song Lyric Sunday is to post a song about the parent/child relationship.

Rules and Pingback here

Now I am running late again so I am going to give you two songs. 

The first one is from Mike and the Mechanics. A song about father son relationship. This song deals with how often father son relationships often break down due to father and son being too alike. I know about this.

Lyrics by A to Z lyrics. 

The living years

Every generation
Blames the one before
And all of their frustrations
Come beating on your door

I know that I’m a prisoner
To all my Father held so dear
I know that I’m a hostage
To all his hopes and fears
I just wish I could have told him in the living years

Crumpled bits of paper
Filled with imperfect thought
Stilted conversations
I’m afraid that’s all we’ve got

You say you just don’t see it
He says it’s perfect sense
You just can’t get agreement
In this present tense
We all talk a different language
Talking in defense

Say it loud, say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It’s too late when we die
To admit we don’t see eye to eye

So we open up a quarrel
Between the present and the past
We only sacrifice the future
It’s the bitterness that lasts

So don’t yield to the fortunes
You sometimes see as fate
It may have a new perspective
On a different date
And if you don’t give up, and don’t give in
You may just be O.K.

Say it loud, say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It’s too late when we die
To admit we don’t see eye to eye

I wasn’t there that morning
When my Father passed away
I didn’t get to tell him
All the things I had to say

I think I caught his spirit
Later that same year
I’m sure I heard his echo
In my baby’s new born tears
I just wish I could have told him in the living years

Say it loud, say it clear
You can listen as well as you hear
It’s too late when we die
To admit we don’t see eye to eye

The second  one is  from Sinaide O’Connor , My Three Babies. A beautiful song about mother love and Sacrifice. A very special song to me as I have three sons. The lyrics are in the video.


Got to dash now love to you all. Thanks again Helen for a great prompt. ❤
