  1. Woo-hoo, I got promted yesterday!!

    I got to work, and started doing my morning chores, which consists mainly of reading my e-mail then cleaning the bathrooms. But instead Roberto (the boss) came up and said, "The opening guy for accessories can't make it. You're up."

    AAIIIGGHH!!:eek:

    I wasn't really ready for it, but after about 2 hours I got into the routine and it became a lot of fun!! I even broke my daily goal!!:D

    The best part is that the department manager for accessories is leaving at the end of the month, and all of us AC guys could possibly get the job. From Door Slave to DM in three months. That's gotta be a GC record!!

    :D

    As you can see, I'm in a good mood.:D

    Rock on

    Silly Australians! Everyone here in america considers thongs butt-floss.

    We call the sandal type footwear flip-flops. (Yeah, who's silly now? :rolleyes: )

    American Vs Australian

    Thongs= flip flops

    Tomato Sauce= Ketchup.... it is made from tomato's, it is like a sauce.. thus the term Tomato Sauce.. i dont see any Chuppa Chup in there nor a kettle.... :p

    If ketchup is tomato sauce, what the hell do you guys put between the crust and cheese of your pizza?

    I'm american and I call them thong sandals... sooo there:p :p
     
  15. What are you talking about? Bathrooms are straight down the hallway, past the Managers office, last door on your left. Unless your a girl, then it's the first door on your left. Why, doesn't your let the public in?

    And I like the idea of Water=Beer.:D

    Rock on

    Thongs are underwear in blighty!

    Flip-flops are sandals.

    Ketchup and tomato sauce are pretty interchageable.


    Pizza sauce is the tomato and herbs sauce/paste that goes between the crust and the cheese.



    Well there's my 2 cents worth.


    Oh and Eric - congrats on the promotion!!!
     
  18. I have a bunch of Italian (American) friends that would slap the hell out of you if you used ketchup on a pasta or pizza.
















    That and ketchup smells funny when you cook it. So lets get the differences between ketchup and tomato sauce out of the way. And lets rack our brains on the difference between Catsup and Ketchup, I can never really tell the difference between the two. And how do you pronounce tomato; is it tomayto or tomaato? Vowels can't be consistant between cultural boundries, it's just like how you pornounce schedual and vagi.... er... I mean moootor.
