Here's what can be taken away from this scenario:
1) Patience- I am willing to give anybody as many chances as I have fingers, however, if disrespect comes into the picture, the chances go from 10 to 3. First time you get a chance, second you get a warning, third I will make the problem known and there will be consequences.
2) Stand-up for Yourself- Don't EVER feel intimidated by someone else's behavior. There are tons of people that you will deal with every single day that will walk right on over you if you let them. The second that you let them know that they are not allowed to walk over you, they'll think before they try to do it the next time (I deal with this daily. I'm out-numbered by males in my line of work probably one female to every 7 males. I'm one of the youngest in my company. But I'm successful).
3) Just remember this verse- "Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity." 1 Timothy 4:12 I need to work on the 'example' part as well as the 'love' part, but I never said I was perfect.
4) Oh, one more thing that BFlo and my mom always tell me- "It's easier to attract bees with honey than with vinegar." Just kill them with kindness :) That's why I marched right up to Mr. I'm Too Cool for School with a giant smile and extended my hand to him. He was basically speechless. He was obviously not used to confrontation.
Oh! I almost forgot to tell you- I just booked my Birthday Cruise! That's right, I'll be celebrating my last year in my 20's on a Boat! BFlo and I are totally last minute, so the countdown is already at 9 days, 8 if you're reading this on Wednesday. Yippee!!!!!! We did this same cruise for my bday 3yrs ago, when I was younger ;( Just a 4 nighter, 5 dayer. But we will have no access to cell phones or internet! What Bliss!
And can you believe this???
Royal Caribbean Tweeted about me!!!!! Oh Emm Gee! Am I famous or something?!
Cruises of the past:
We will be leaving out of Ft. Lauderdale and headed to Cozumel on Royal Caribbean's Liberty of the Seas (we did its sister ship- Independence of the Seas 3yrs ago on the same trip). The whole trip with flights, cruise, tax, tips and all you can eat buffets will cost us a grand total of.... 800 Smackaroos! I think that's a killer deal! We were thinking Miami vacay but the hotel alone would cost $600-$800 and then food, another $200 at least. Captain JFlo aka Vacation Planner Extraordinaire can help you get out on the Lido deck any day for cheap- just let me know! :)
