This is a Wonderful Customer story

So I work at a designer boot store from the land down under. I’m seasonal and management will be letting half of us go on Monday. I had a feeling I would be one of those people let go.
So I’m working hard cleaning up after customers, when one frustrated customer comes up to me asking to find her a shoe. Apparently four coworkers have not helped her out though she asked. I search the back, nothing. I went up to one of the registers (computers) and looked in our inventory. Nothing. So I spent twenty minutes calling all across the country of the USA to find the shoe she wanted. She was with me the whole time. Repeatedly she was saying how thankful she was, as I told her it was my first time using the computers for stock and calling other stores. She praised me and was so happy when I found a pair in Florida. So I rang her up and ordered the shoes to be sent to her home. Afterwards she asked to see a manager. She told all five of my managers how helpful I was, how wonderful I was with customer service and that she is going to leave a 5-star review of our store, saying my name. My managers looked very pleased. That lady may have saved my job.

once when i was 17, i was in my room and i heard my older brother ask me what i was doing. i turned around and he wasn't there and my door was shut. i went searching through the house to tell him off bc i figured it was a prank. i couldn't find him. twenty minutes of useless searching later, i ask my mom if she'd seen where he went, "he left a couple of hours ago."

oh man no way would I be dealing with that. it reminds me of this story I heard the other night, where this guy got back and found his brother at home and he said to his brother oh, I thought you were at a party, and the brother told him that it had been shit so he came home early. a short while later and the guy gets a phone call from his brother, who’s still at the party, telling him to come down because it’s great. the “brother” is in the living room watching TV and the guy is staring at the back of his head the entire time he’s on the phone.

My gift to @a-whole-lasagna for the @frukgiftexchange 2017! One of your wishes was “A Victorian or Edwardian-era setting”, so I went with Victorian (and their wonderful clothes~). I hope you’ll like it and that you had fun during the Holidays! (ノ^ω^)ノ♥ ゜・。。・

Now the fanfic~


Title: Je t'aime

Pairing: FrUk

Summary: After accompanying his mother to the opera and meeting a mysterious man with the looks of an angel, Arthur could not take that smooth and melodic voice out of his head. Human AU. Victorian setting.

———

London, England, 14 May 1853…

It was a cold and rainy evening when Arthur Kirkland found himself standing in front of Theatre Royal. It had taken all of his mother’s patience to convince him to change into his best clothes and accompany her to the opera. As the younger brother, it was his duty to take care of the house and look after his mother while his brothers were out of town taking care of the family’s business. After his father had passed away the previous year, Arthur and his older brothers had made a vow to work hard and make their mother happy again.

Another successful hormone injection! \o/ Last week’s went kinda… awry, not in a super dangerous way, but I’m still learning how to really make it go smooth each time. So I’m celebrating this week’s success, and also, it still feels a little weird injecting hormones each week, but for me and a lot of people out there it’s our normal, and I want it to feel normal, so I’m posting about it. Hooray! Another successful procedure!

hey how do you think Shrio escaped from the Galra Empire in the first place?

Since the ship that crashed on Earth was most likely stolen, I figure the plan went as follows.

- Memorize the sentries’ patterns and routes. 
- Squirrel away some metal scraps to pick the door with.
- Evade the sentries while searching for a ship.
- Discover his robotic arm won’t open the hanger bay.
- Secretly drag a sentry somewhere quiet and smash it to get a usable arm.
- Sneak into the hanger.
- Escape pod get.
- Use the arm to fake access codes and pray to whatever’s listening that no one gets suspicious.

- Fly like hell.

I call it the Kenobi-Skywalker Plan because it sounds like a piece of bullshit they would have pulled in the Clone Wars.

Hello, I saw your compilation about BTS's broadcast. Do you remember this one when V said he saw jungkook get ready for school and he sprayed his hair for 10min straight also his bangs was covering one of his eyes? I watched it once when I was new army (randomly clicked) and now I forgot what it was bcs I wanna watch it again :(

Hi! I did some some searching around, as I had a few videos in mind, but none matched your description. Quite honestly, I’m not sure which video you’re referring to.. sorry.. ;_;

Feel free to message me or send another ask if you happen to remember anything else about the video (i.e. whether it’s a Bangtan Bomb, what era, what year, or where you watched the video/the channel name)

I’ll link the videos that I found, just in case it was one of them.

But do you ever wonder what blogs taylor likes to check up on daily? Where she goes to the search bar and types your username in, then scrolls through your blog, reads about how your day went, sees your selfies, goes through the textposts you’ve made for her to read, probably smiles, and just keeps on learning about you. We all know she does it. I just wonder who she does it to? It’s a crazy concept that she is so invested in our lives and makes time to check up on us.

I was getting a milk tea from the vending machine at work when I heard meows.

Knowing where the town hall keeps the strays they find, I went in search of the distressed kitty. I turned the corner to find this beautiful little bundle of fur desperately meowing. It was amazingly friendly and let me, a complete stranger, pet it through the bars of the cage.

It kept on rubbing its face against my fingers and I’ve never fallen in love with a cat so fast. I spent a good half hour by that cage enraptured by the feline.

Unfortunately like most, I can’t have pets but I asked anyways. Fortunately enough, I found out the next day that this little buddy was going to a good home.

Anon ask

I received an ask with this:  

 How did you discover Shadowhunters? <3 -Anon 

but it wasn’t on anon and I’m not sure how comfortable you are with me posting it so I’ll reply here separately! (By the way that was so adorable <3)

I’m not gonna lie, I saw malec on my Tumblr dash and I was like, who are these two gorgeous man flirting with each other on screen? I think the gifs I saw were from 1X09 and 1X12 (OF COURSE) and I was pretty damn curious so I searched it out on Tumblr. 

And I didn’t watch the entire series from start to end at first. I started off with these compiled malec clips from every episode on a Chinese equivalent of Youtube (because I like watching English shows with Mandarin subtitles) so I basically went through all the malec scenes without knowing the entire premise of the show. I don’t know how I did that, really. Then I went into fics and learnt more about the shadow world from there and I was like heck, let me just do this. So I downloaded and watched season 1 (with Mandarin subtitles, again. I’m a visual person and my listening skills are abysmal) and here I am, livestreaming Shadowhunters at 9am (local time), making gifs and analysing characters like my life depended on it. Shit happens. 💁

Shadowhunters is the first U.S. series I’ve completed, actually. I’m terrible at dramas, so. But I’m proud to be part of this fandom; sure shit goes down sometimes, but I’ve met great people. :) 

Tell me how you discovered Shadowhunters too! <3

I turned the corner of a dark street and saw this view. It came & went so quickly; I thought it was a dream

Glimmers of beauty amidst a dark era serve as reminders to keep working, keep searching, keep turning corners.

Redbeard - Sherlock’s childhood dog that was put down and made Sherlock swear off feelings because it was too painful to love

Except, no, Sherlock rewrote that memory, actually

Redbeard - Sherlock’s childhood dog who Euros took and hid somewhere and Sherlock searched all over and couldn’t find him, and Sherlock’s parents tried to make her tell them, but couldn’t, and wasn’t even that actual reason Euros went away, because he was just a dog, but the whole thing made Sherlock swear off feelings because it was too painful to love

Except, no, Sherlock rewrote that memory, actually

VictOR TREVOR - AN ACTUAL LIVING BREATHING CHILD WHOSE NICKNAME WHEN HE PLAYED WITH SHERLOCK WAS REDBEARD THAT EUROS CHAINED IN A WELL THAT NO ONE COULD FIND????? REALLY? THIS WAS A CHILD. MAYBE YOU STOP LOOKING FOR A DOG, BUT YOU DO NOT STOP LOOKING FOR A CHILD?? WEREN’T THE AUTHORITIES CALLED? BECAUSE IT WAS A CHILD? WOULDN’T THE AUTHORITIES HAVE HAD ACCESS TO THE LOT PLANS AND THE DEED AND WOULDN’T THEY HAVE FOUND THE WELL BECAUSE THAT SHIT WAS ZONED???? WHAT ABOUT VICTOR TREVOR’S PARENTS???? WOULDN’T THEY HAVE NEVER GIVEN UP LOOKING FOR THEIR CHILD?? OR WERE THEY OKAY WITH THEIR KID DYING TO BE A PLOT DEVICE 40 YEARS LATER?????????

okay so when lydia spelled stiles’ name by writing the word “mischief” over and over…am i the only one who’s brain went to mischief night and when did teen wolf cover that? in season three aka 3x15 galvanize aka the episode that had one of the most pure and most honest stydia scenes of all time in stiles’ room when he is telling her she felt something and he would go back and search all night just to prove it to her.

is this somehow connected? is this the moment lydia realized her feelings for stiles stilinski really fully and truly and then buried them but really is this the moment because i would not be surprised at all if this is the moment

oh my god, this could be a thing…couldn’t it? 

Apple Tree Yard...

…is not a novel by Amanda Coe. Further ‘proof’. [puts on tin hat]

Ok, let’s go down that rabbit hole.

Many of us suspect there is still something coming from Mofftiss and the BBC and recent theories include the series Apple Tree Yard and it’s airing time which collides with a suspected fourth episode which can/could be  be found scheduled for Sunday, Jan 22nd on yahoo.

I went over to the BBC schedules and checked. Apple Tree Yard is there, complete with trailers and descriptions.

It says it’s based on a novel by Amanda Coe who also works as a screenwriter and created “Life in Squares” for the BBC.

Based on a novel. Since the tin hat is in place I thought: Better check that, I’m a detective!

So this is the official Apple Tree Yard description – it’s about a woman named Dr. Yvonne Carmichael. Okay, so far that seems all right.

So I searched for the novel “Apple Tree Yard” by Amanda Coe. Doesn’t exist.

Okay, maybe they changed the title but surely it’s based on something else? These are all novels of Amanda Coe’s I could find:

THERE IS NO DR. YVONNE CHARMICHAEL.

THERE IS NO DESCRIPTION THAT EVEN REMOTELY RESEMBLES APPLE TREE YARD.

I mean, I don’t know about adapting novels for television but… Aren’t you supposed to keep the title? Aren’t you supposed to keep the same characters? And their names? What’s the point of creating an adaptation which doesn’t … adapt … anything at all?

Take that and the names of the cast someone (I’m sorry, I forgot who!) already pointed out as well as the similarities in the plot description, ‘enigmatic stranger’ and all that. I’m not saying the BBC asked one of their writers to lend their name and reputation to a story that doesn’t exist but… they could do that. It’s possible.

Apple Tree Yard itself is definitely real, there are promo pictures, trailers and everything. But the part of it being an adaptation of Amanda Coe’s novel seems to me like a gigantic lie. Amanda Coe does create screenplays for the BBC, maybe this is one of her new creations that will definitely air but they decided to fuck with the description in order to [touches tin hat] make sure there is a time slot available and also a slight hint for us to pick up on?

Edit: okay, some of you told me it’s a novel by Louise Doughty but  there is no mention of the autor’s name in the BBC’s description! It clearly says “adapted from the novel by Amanda Coe”.

I always looked for someone to go on adventures with

And then I met you

And we went on many adventures, yes

But I realized that I wasn’t searching for someone to go on adventures with

But rather to find the adventure within someone

And I then realized you were the adventure

Exploring the things that made you laugh
Taking the paths that ran throughout your mind
Tracing the trails along your body

You were my favorite adventure of all.

—  J.R., the girl who wanted to explore the world, even if the world was only a person

What if in season 4, maybe in the 3rd episode, the episode starts with Mary pointing a gun again at Sherlock. With a phone on speaker between them.

They are in an unknown location. That’s what the SWAT team is searching for in the trailer.

And John is in the car as shown in the trailer and he actually went his own way to search for Sherlock. And Mary is actually talking with John.

“You should tell him now John. He doesn’t have much time left.”

“Tell him what?”

John’s voice trembles.

Mary, suppressing a chuckle.

“The things you wanted to say, but never said.”

And John’s car crashes.
