I havent blogged as much as I should have been but have been a little pre-occupied.. You see, On tuesday at work I was held up at knifepoint... By a FEMALE!!! I was at work, doing my thing, filling the spare pie oven out the back kitchen and heard the door buzzer go off.. I walked out to serve, and was greeted with a female trying to disguise herself by going hunchback style and putting the back of her shirt up over the top of her head, her forehead kept it there, whilst with one hand she held the collar over the bottom of her face and with her other hand she held something out towards me, At first I nervously giggled, because I recognized the face and asked her what she wanted, and then had to lean back a little to see what was being thrust so close to my face that I couldnt focus on it... It was a HUGE knife. I realised that she meant business, and she repeated that she wanted the money... With my eyes focussing from the knife back to her eyes in disbelief, I opened the cash register, and tipped it up over the Envirobag (you know the ones that all the supermarkets are trying to sell you instead of using their plastic bags) that she had already placed on the counter. The coins went everywhere, only a few went in the back, and she kept saying all of it. I was shaking so much that I kept fumbling and finally cleared the till of money, and then she casually turned around and put the knife in her bag and fixed her shirt u and walked out.. meanwhile I am shitting myself that she may come back in, and called 000 (911) and locked the shop door... was dry reaching, and screaming and crying at this piont, because it had sunk in what had just happened..
Long story shortened..I am now very angry that, that bitch came into our store and made me feel the way I felt.. I have never been so scared.. All I could think of was please dont hurt me, I've got my kids at home.
I have done a com-fit crime photo with the police, but I feel that it isnt close enough to her likeness.. although I could pick her out of a crowd of 1000 people.. its just alot harder to put a face together when choosing, a set of eyes, lips, noses, face shapes... etc. Its so frustrating.
I went back to work the next day (wednesday) and trembed every time the door buzzer went off.. but i know that I cant let her get the better of me..
On the subect of weight loss.. I am getting a little pissed with this whole band thing... I have been exercising, ok, not every day ( my life is hectic at the moment) but certainly enough to make a difference... my band seems a little tighter, and yet, I dont weigh any less...I want to start seeing some improvements... dammit. I have even been making better food choices...
Thats all from me for now.. gotta get ready to get to work..
