    Since I am now working in the gift department of a retail store, I see LOTS of little sayings on different types of merchandise. Some tickle my funny bone while others just ring true - I thought I'd share some of my favorite ones with you folks here on the BOC. I'm sure you may have seen quite a few of these before, but I think they're worth reading again :smile2:.

    Friends are like angels - you don't have to SEE them to know that they're there.

    Many people come into our lives, but some leave footprints on our hearts and we are never ever the same.

    When I count my blessings I count you twice.

    We may not have it altogether, but together we have it all.

    The best things in life aren't THINGS.

    Be the kind of person your dog thinks you are.

    Dogs laugh with their tails.

    Do you want to talk to the man in charge, or the woman who knows what's going on?

    There are two theories for arguing with women. Neither one works.

    If you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to serve as a horrible warning.

    I may not be totally perfect. But parts of me are excellent.

    I KISS better than I cook.

    I'm still hot - it just comes in flashes now.

    I stay away from natural foods, at my age I need all the preservatives I can get!

    Inside me lives a skinny woman crying to get out, but I can usually shut her up with cookies.

    The nice part of living in a small town is that when I don't know what I'm doing, someone else DOES.

    Live well, laugh often, love freely.....

    The measure of love is to love without measure.

    Dream a lot. Expect the very best.

    It's not where you've been that counts, it's where you're going.

    The key to a vital life is an eagerness to learn.....and a willingness to change.

    Great love and great achievements involve great risk.

    Never laugh at anyone's dream. People who don't dream don't have much.

    Learn from yesterday. Hope for tomorrow.

    Things happen for a reason, just believe.

    Every day is an opportunity to make a new happy ending.

    Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

    I like 'em all, but may make this one my motto:
    I stay away from natural foods,
    at my age I need all the preservatives I can get! :big_smile:


    Good ones, Tanya :smile2: Thanks for sharing them!

    This one is sooooo true....apparently some of us have interesting lives, because other people cannot keep there noses out of others' business!!!

    Wow Tanya, there is a lot of deep thoughts going on where you work! Where I work it's more like "Is this day ever going to end?":eek:oooh:

    Thanks for sharing these with us all. It surely gives a guy a lot to think about! Whenever I am in a store with those kinds of things, I try to take a minute when no one is looking to read a few of those sayings. Never know when you might be able to slide one into a convo and save your butt!!!!


    HAHA thanks again!

    Tanya,

    I enjoyed those! Thanks for sharing them. Some I had seen, some not, but I love quotes, so when I have a few minutes of time to kill in a store.....:crazy: that's another story..........I read the shirts or bumper stickers or whatever. I can spend hours picking out 1 card, too, for someone. I've had a love of it for as long as I can remember. Poetry, too! I have old writings of mine stashed somewhere in this mess I call home. :big_smile: My home may be messy, but it has been described as cozy, friendly, inviting, comforting, etc. :tounge_out: There is certainly more to life than housework, every day of the week, or eliminating dandelions in my yard. Lord, I have too much to do for those trivial things. Enjoying life and what I want to do at the moment.............Life is good. Spring is springing. Flowers are blooming and birds are singing. Yep, life is good.

    Take care.
    Love and hugs, and don't work too hard,
    Cheryl

    One of my favorites is something to the effect of:

    I can deal with anything, I have my big girl panties on...............

    or something like that. It's on a sign at Becca's that a friend gave her.

    LMAO.

    Perhaps she will read this one and tell us exactly what it says.

    Take care.

    I pulled my heavy coat out of the closet earlier, and found these in the pocket, written on the back of a receipt. They're from some signs in a local restaurant..... the type decorated with all sorts of memorabilia, some real stuff and some reproductions. Guess I wrote 'em down 'cause they struck me as humorous at the time :smile2:.

    Notice: Floggings will continue until morale improves.

    Thank you for not being perky.

    We don't serve women here, you have to bring your own.

    most of the sayings at my work go something like this
    MSgt:" WHO THE HE!! TOLD YOU TO DO THAT?!?!?!?!"
    Me:"You did Master Sergeant."
    MSgt:"WHY DID I TELL YOU TO DO THAT AGAIN?!?!?!?!"
    Me:"I dont know Master Sergeant, you just said get it done by C.O.B. (close of business)."
    MSgt:" WELL STOP DOING IT AND COME HERE. I HAVE SOMETHING ELSE FOR YOU TO DO........"

    this kind of stuff happens on a daily basis out here.

    Gees Joey, I never knew the military and the retail biz were so similar :smile2:.
    I had a boss like that, didn't realize I should call her Master Sergeant, we just called her Sherrie :wink:. It's enough to get on your LAST nerve :confused2:.
