*stretches* AAhhh...

So, I have majorly been slacking on my German homework. :/ I need to get on that, much like many other things in my life.

I had a Birthday, it was okay, nothing special really. S' all good.

So, I went to one of the local video stores recently and we had quite a story experience. My mom and I, naturally, decided to rent some videos and the rental fee ended up being around five dollar. My mom only had 50s so she paid with one of them and received her change. I thought for a second that one of the 20s he gave her back looked a little strange, but I dismissed it. Plus, the guy who was giving the change was acting a little strange. He seemed distracted and jumpy. Still, I left the store without saying a word. Later we went to Subway and my Mother found that she had a 50, a 20 and a 5 all in the same group. We weren't sure, but we thought therefore he must have mixed up the change. We go back to the video store and try to notify one of the clerks. She responds in a strange voice that it would be "impossible to tell" if they were missing any money as they all just  take money from eachother's tills. My mom, who had worked as a cashier before (like many people have), thought this was a little strange. We then decided to talk to the shift manager who was the first person to express concern over it. After that we waited around a half an hour for her to count all of the money in every single till. She came back and asked us again how much we got back ($75) and how much we were supposed to get back ($45). It turns out they were missing substantially more than the $30 dollars from us. So, based on the atittudes of the two previous cashiers we think they're skimming and he just accidentally gave us the $50 instead of keeping it himself.

Wonderful, huh?

Also, a few days ago I went camping in the National Wilderness Park. We were lucky enough to get a cabin (which apparently is booked the entire summer. :( I wanted to invite some of my friends for my Birthday part there). It's literally right in the middle of nowhere, there's no plumbing and no electricity, which I realize to some sounds terrible, but it was SO BEAUTIFUL there. Seriously, I wish I had pictures...but I do not. It was so peaceful out there, surrounded by a forest with a little trail out to the beach. *sigh*
Now I have to get back into the routine...ah well it can't last forever...

That is quite an epic story for it being a video store.

*shakes finger* German homework. Now. And summer reading.

:D just finished my German homework and as for summer reading, I'm pratically already done. I finished Frankenstein and all of the questions and I'm almost done with Pride and Prejudice.

I haven't done Frankenstein yet, but I'm almost through Pride And Prejudice. I slacked a bit on actually getting the books.
