Safety First

Bon jour, Hola, Greetings, Oye...Anyway you say it. It's always friendly and welcomed. Same thing goes when you buy food. The sell by label is always a warm welcome keeing you posted with the expiration date. I have noticed more and more that little shops and vendors in manhattan have no shame or regards for other the general public. I bought a pack of mini oreo's and can not tell you how shocked i was when i got to my desk to realize i was sold expired goods. I have noticed this trend everywhere in mid-town. The biggest tours site. Time Square - 42nd st. NYC ! Would you eat it or drink it?
Some people would say that it is only stale or flat...I say no good! Why would you spend money on something that isn't worth anything anymore. How much harm can you do by ingesting something no recommended by date. The FDA approves the rate at which produce good perrish. These are all cost included into the product when sold. Vendors don't pay full original prices. They get everything at a discounted rate knowing that everything will perrish. I want to ask these vendors would they feed their children with this crap.
Business isn't always business when your ethics are unjust. I would give them the benefit of the doubt if they didn't know but for the most part they don't care. I will test this theory and see how these vendors go about their business. I will purchase something and then as i get my change back i will look at the expiration date and point it out to them. I want to see if i get my money back or pick another item. Half the time i find it difficult to find a expiration date. Is it me or do you ever wonder if they erase it? Speak out to those who have a license to sell. They should know better for all man kind. On the look for a new and better vendor.

Subway Series

Aiyo !! That has been my situtation on the subway for the last couple of days. Started off like a strange day where i got a seat at the end of the cart (two seater). Two stops into a prego woman walks on and no one offered her a seat so i did the right thing being that i was in the handicap seats. Ok, i decided to stand where this character is standing except i was attempting to read my S.I (sports Illustrated) World cup issue. My luck i get to my article and at Prospect park the train got ran-sacked! Some woman had the nerve to try to squeeze into the train which made 4 ppl stuck at the door for 3 stops. She couldn't hold on to anything - grabbing other ppl. Leaning on me and bumping into me everytime the train stopped or accelerated. She was working on her apologize all the way to 14th st saying sorry...sorry...sorry! First time in a long time that i stayed awake on the train since i usually take a nap. I know my early bedtime -9:30pm had to do with that energy i had.
Since we are on the subway come the MTA knows how to screw ppl over at the worst times. Rush hour on the way to work and back home. I was on the Q-train going home in a seat comfortable and left work early. We got into bklyn - dekalb and the train decided to go on the N-line. Wow, ok fine no problem. I will just go to Coney Island and do extra reading since i got new books from Barnes and Noble. Thanks to my baby. I finished reading the book that my quack gave me which i liked and returned it. So i am on a mission to read my next book. Half-way into bklyn my train decideds to run on the R -line now !!! Wtf - i transfered for a real N-train since that was the only train that was going to get me to Coney Island. Took me about an hour and 45 mins to get home on a 40min -1 hr ride home. Typical MTA for you and the prices of rides never fails to go up.
Don't you ever want to tell the person passed out with their mouth wide open to close it. Otherwise, i will take some pictures for FB comments. How about the riders who think they fit in a seat that does not hold their capacity! I can't stand dirty jewish men with some skin condition issue and stink like they haven't washed clothes in weeks. Forget about the ppl who decide to eat right next to you. Not a muffin or yogurt. Cooked eggs in a chinese container with a fork. Oh, how the smell wakes u up quickly. I thought someone was riping it near by but i was wrong. It was the lady next to me who couldn't get up early enough to eat at home.
Daily stories on the Q-train. I could go on and on with this issue. Please feel free to share you horror stories.

Introduction + a side of fries

Howdy, I forgot to introdue myself. My name is Mauricio N..... Some of you might know me already...please don't go south with my last name it rhymes with Loyola College. Not that i have ever attended or enrolled in that university. I went to the Hunter College and got my degree in Accounting. Who knew i would end up becoming a biller? I must say that i have learned alot along the way from previous jobs. I will get into that discussion another time but what i am trying to say is that living and learns take you on a journey. I have grown and learned alot (gaining experience). Meeting and networking with very interesting ppl. I would recommend reading..You're too smart for this - beating the 100 big lies about your first job. by Michael Ball. I am almost done with the book and i can say that it has opened my mind and eyes when it comes to looking at things in a different light.
Woke up with the craziest headache. Def. must have been the lack of sleep i have been getting but i took the time to sum up my day + a side of fries. I had a very great bonding experience with my dad which i like a lot. We had breakfast together, dropped my prescription and heading to the city by train to meet my gf. She reads this stuff and i have to watch what i say but you never know. I get so into this i might just blog away with no worries. This is such a great tension release and wonderful outlook of my life. Those who take the time to read will see how wonderful life can be when you embrace it. Yes, yes laugh it up over there. Might sound cheesy but it's pretty accurate.
I got my first METS jumpsuit/jacket. It is very warm and i got it at a great discount 50%..yes i love to bargin when i can but not afraid to pay the retail price. Wasn't able to have a jamba juice i guess it wasn't meant to be. Got new books to read - more like teach me things i wanted to re-learn and master. Put it into practice - bookkeeping and peachtree (which is a typical accounting program). Which i can relate to other programs down the road but i have it installed on my laptop so i will use that for now. Finally, went to trader joe's in the city - didn't get much but i know where it is for future. DSW was packed so i have to go on the weekday to get sneakers with my 30% coupon. Did all this with my wonderful gf and it was nice to have her company like always. Always looking foward to the weekend so you should expect loads of things for me talk about. The week might be morning but i'll try to spice it up for you NY. Till then be safe and make some ME time (1 hr minimum) each weekend.

Busy weekend

Hi Followers,
Today is such a beautiful day...suck that i couldn't sleep in a little longer. I thought i had my alarm off so i wouldn't wake up as if it were a work day. Had a monster breakfast and backed to play either soccer or handball. Couldn't help but play handball but i will be sure to play soccer next week. Got new RollerBlades at a pretty fair price. I am def. exhausted and about to have some fish with rice and potatoes. My friend - Janelle is on her way back from Orlando. My dad is getting ready for the world cup 2010 in south africa. Printing out the complete schedule. I also got tickets to the mets game vs marlins on june 5th. We got nose bleeds but i'm sure we could have gotten better tickets but i can always watch another game later. Going to see what they hype is about with Avatar tonight if we are not doing anything at my gf's house. Tomorrow will be another day. Did i tell you i am working to win the lottery (either powerball or mega) I really could use it to help relax and take care of everyone around me since i have such a big heart. Yes, maybe a little ego but for the most part considerate. Expect more since this is my first blog posting. Many more to come. Hopefully i will check out coney island...all these thing i want to do but never time to enjoy each activity. We will see how things play out tonight.
You know what time it is.
