COVID-19_Walmart

Hi! My name is Linda Garrett. I have worked for Walmart Corporation for 19 years at store 2857 Boardwalk Square. I ‘ve never taken a leave of absence. I’ve always respected TIME, DISEASE, ILLNESS, and DEATH. I was fortunate to use my Disability/PTO TIME wisely to handle my adversities. Unlike some people, I have TOTAL AUTHORITY over NOTHING. At this moment in TIME, I only wish to CONTROL my BREATHING and be surrounded by the necessary VENTILATION call FRESH AIR. Steve Collison and Maeve Reston of CNN please hear me out.

Hey! I notice an error. I am far far from perfect. I am not using Disability/PTO.  I meant to say The Family First Coronavirus Response Act Paid Leave and Paid Sick Time.

Where is the window? I need some fresh air. I can’t breathe in this filthy room. Buildings had tilted windows and push out windows many years ago. What happened? My nausea and headache would probably go away. I haven’t heard one person ask any questions about windows in relationship to COVID-19. Is it close to 7:00 am? When I step outside this building I will not take my fresh air for granted. Fresh Air.

!.) helps the digestive tract (oxygen intake digest food efficiently)

2.) helps in weight loss

3.) improves heart rate and blood pressure

4.) gives you breathing room (the body doesn’t work as hard for oxygen)

5.) increase serotonin

6.) strengthen the immune system (oxygen increases)

7.) white blood cells function properly fighting germs and killing bacteria

8.) cleans our lungs (dilated lungs more increase in oxygen, airborne toxin release when you exhale)

9.) does wonder for your brain

10.) more energy and one can concentrate and stay focus.

Reverse the airflow and no Fresh Air. What happens when you have these health conditions or everyone begins to look like they have these medical conditions? COVID-19 is knocking at the door trying to get in. Whew! I have a lot of concerns. I keep hearing the word second wave. I’m not hearing the word mutation. Coronavirus appears to have similar symptoms of the following respiratory disorder below only intensified by ¶ (pi).

At some point in time, COVID-19 will touch every human host on the planet.  It is learning the different DNAs of all different races.  This virus doesn’t care if you are Caucasoid (White): Negroid (Black): Capoid (Bushmen/Hottentots): Mongoloid(Oriental/Amerindian): Australoid(Australian Aborigine and Papuan). Whew! Reminds me of the movie 1956 Invasion Of The Body Snatchers’.   The remake of  Invasion Of The  Body Snatchers’ was filmed in 1978. COVID-19 will change or mutate along the way.  How much can the body’s immune system take?

bronchiectasis: lungs and airflow become damage It is hard to clear mucous.

Symptoms: phlegm, productive cough, recurrent infection

Pneumonia: infection that inflames the air sacs in one are both lungs, which may fill the lungs with fluid.

Symptoms: sharp chest pain, clammy skin, dehydration

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: a group of lung diseases that blocks the airflow and make it difficult to breathe.

Acute Bronchitis: inflammation of the lining of the brachial tubes, which carry air to and from the lungs.

Symptoms: dry cough, productive cough, shortness of breath

Respiratory Disease: a condition that worsens the structure of the lungs. It can also affect the passageway that leads to the lungs.

Dr. Fauci are you there? I was in the cash office during the night preparing money to be placed in the Self-Check machines for the next day. My hand was scan by the machine. This room was small. I found it hard to breathe. Dirt and dust filled the room. The floor was filthy. Where is the mop? The money recycler was kept in this room. At the start of my shift, the recycler had run its course. Managers were constantly called to the cash office to fix the machine. When the machine was open dust and debris flew everywhere. My shift was 10:00 pm-7:00 am. I knew it would be a long night. Megan V. inform me the recycler was broke again. The machine had been having problems throughout the day.

The money recycler felt as though I was in an airplane at 30,000 feet. A passenger coughs in a compressed air chamber. Oh hell no! There is no escape. Recycled air is dangerously contaminated.  What do you think the mask is for? Two people in a fishbowl turned upside down breathing the same air. Where is the oxygen? Dr. Fauci, explains what happens when you are in a sick room or building? The light bulb flashed in my brain. I looked around and there were no windows or vents. In the corner sat an old out-dated fan. Wilmot Read Hasting Jr., co-founder, CEO of Netflix, are you there? I’ve become the leading lady in the Panic Room. My next contract movie is Box II.

Dr. Fauci, the EPA has a really good article on sick buildings. I’m reading sick_building_factsheet.pdf now. I am beginning to understand what happens when there are no windows or proper ventilation. Walmart qualifies for an Indoor Air Quality Investigation for their sick buildings. Walmarts stores across the nation and all over the world need to be checked. I am quite sure Walmart’s profit in toilet paper along should cover the charges. I’m holding Walmart Inc. and CEO Doug McMillon accountable for the lives of all Walmart associates.  COVID-19_Walmart. This is yet another OSHE VIOLATION and a Walmart Sh*t Hole Decision. Hmmm! Contact OSHA 800-321-6742, 800-321-OSHA, or visit http://www.osha.gov.

It felt as though I was clocking into death Monday-Friday. Pure anxiety! I’ve written stories in this blog about Walmart Home Office controlling the airflow. Thinking about the HVAC (heating and cooling system) made my hair stand on my head. Okay, my wig.  Hey, I ain’t gonna lie. I worried about pollutants, contaminates, and pathways. I was constantly staring up at the vents in the lady’s restroom. I’m bothered by the fact no one has mentioned about windows. I drove around. I couldn’t find buildings with windows or push out windows. The choice for central air and heating may not be the best option with a virus attacking one’s respiratory system. It’s cheaper for our society to pay less for central gas and air. Whew! I will leave it there.

I thought I was going to die at the self-checkout night after night. Only one cashier and I were scheduled in the front end the majority of the time. It was brutal changing out the 8 self-checks. The money cart was so heavy to push. Walmart was always thinking of ways to break down the older associates. Yeah, Joe and Mika, just get rid of the most vulnerable, old people. Writer Gone Rogue_Sh*t In The Box, January 21, 2019, I used a link to show how Walmart plans to force out older associates. I click onto the link and the information was gone. Imagine That. I wonder if Sundar Pichai can shine some light on the link and make it reappear. CEO Doug McMillon needs to take a lesson from Pichai. Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon increase the hiring of their corporation. What a Kill Drill. Read the article Bad News at Google. Here’s How Sundar Pichai Explained It.

There were no Asset Protection at night. Walmart removed the First Responders from the store many years ago. I can think of at least 30 First Responders off the top of my head who checked on me through the night. I want to give a special shout out to KCPD, North, South, East Patrol, Platte County Sherrif Department including Shoal Creek. I want to thank each and every one of the First Responders, The Brew Top Crew, doctors, nurses, EMTs from St. Luke, and North Kansas City Hospital for showing great concern. There is a big difference between social distance and isolation. I felt totally isolated so many nights. You thought I had Ebola.

I knew I would either get rob or killed for having all that money out on the floor. I hated we were next to the airport. Every person stepping off the plane from all over the world could bring a virus from another country. It would tear my body to shreds if the cash office didn’t kill me first. All the carts collected around the store were full of returns. Clothes, toys, chemicals, meats, dairy products, all food items dumped into one basket. Returns were to be separated in customer services.

The returns were separated and returned to the floor. Bacteria on top of Bacteria. Food claims sat right on the side of the service desk next to the cash office on the floor. Spoiled frozen foods, vegetables, dairy products, and meats reeked of the foulest odor. On the grocery side, it was unbelievable. I’ll put it like this, the stench was so bad from all the grocery food claims Deffenbaugh trash trucks probably would refuse to pick up Walmart’s garbage. Hey Katy, are you still alive back there. Katy has worked many years back in the grocery receiving area. I tip my hat to Katy. I can’t believe she has survived all these years. Thank God! Katy is not old. Kiss the kids for me, Katy.

Number 44 (former President Barack Obama), Bill and Melinda Gates, I desperately need your help. On March 13th, CEO Doug McMillon was the first one to hop on the stage and rubber stamp the man’s name I can no longer speak of. There is NO TRUTH in a Rubber Stamp NO REALITY. CEO Doug McMillon is the Advisor to this man. After this man’s response to Charlottesville, McMillon stated, “he missed a critical opportunity to help bring our country together. Check out this article in Forbes. CEO Doug McMillon and Walmart not only missed critical opportunities but failed to be held accountable for the Mental Health of the associates and now their lives. I want only to be surrounded by people I can trust.

I am trying to figure out what country CEO, Doug McMillon is talking about. I’m sure Number 44(formal President Barack Obama), me, and millions of Americans do not wish to live in an Alt World that creates an atmosphere of fear and a country built on hatred and lies. Tell Vice President Joe Biden when you see him I’m so proud of him. Give him the Elbow for me. Makes sure you read the article, What CEO Doug McMillon Has Learned Since Becoming CEO of Walmart. This article was written on April 23, 2019. CEO Doug McMillon shares his thoughts on Leadership, Risk, Time, Trust, and the associates. I would like to share my thoughts and facts.

Trust Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon when they knew this Pandemic was coming. Yeah Right! What playbook to go about business, as usual, does this remind you? Every Walmart employee is at Risk to Die. You call that leadership. Walmart Inc. and CEO Doug McMillon are about to lead 150,000 workers to their death. Ask any associate at store 2857 Boardwalk Square this question. Do they think Walmart Corporation or CEO Doug McMillon care? Call Tips@Buzzfeed.com. 516-415-2358. You can also email Tips@Buzzfeed.com.

Walmart employees need to change the landscape of their silence. Employees’ lives are on the line. Calling Walmart’s Ethics Hotline just won’t cut it. Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon have yet again created another highly Unethical act by keeping their employees in the dark. Let us not forget CEO Doug McMillon is the advisor to who? My point exactly.

CEO Doug McMillon missed several opportunities with Walmart employees. Work retention is inevitable. Walmarts world is not an inclusive environment for employee’s voices to be heard. Walmart’s signature is No One Will Exceed Expectation. Walmart’s behavior only instills a lack of the following: trust, loyalty, recognition, low morale of the associates, and poor management/mismanagement. Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon:

!.) Failed to keep their employees safe before and during COVID-19.

2.) Failed to care about the Mental Health of the associates.

3.) Failed to care and just be humane. (compassionate, empathetic, and supportive)

4.) Failed to hire the right people.

5.) Failed to keep compensation and benefits current.

6.) Failed to engage and pay attention to what the employees feel.

7.) Failed to put the happiness of the employees as a priority.

8.) Failed to recognize and reward employees.

9.) Failed to tell the Truth. Straight Up!

Giving the associates $3oo is not a reward but an insult, VP Dan Barlett of Walmart. I just want CNN Bussiness to know the Facts. I did read the article Enough is Enough, Growth, and Development, Walmart’s Declining Profitability. Bottom line, Sell Walmart. It is not the associate’s civic duty to DIE for a company that keeps the employees in the dark. This was the Thank You Reward for store 2857 associates who worked and risk their lives through COVID-19. Where are the true incentives? Walmart employees all over the world put their lives on the line for this company. Walmart sent the message to these exhausted associates that they are Expendable.

Macy, Dillards, and many stores went on furlough. Lowes gave their associates an extra $2 for hazard pay. Frito-Lay, owned by Pepsico, pay their associates an extra $20 a day, pay associates to stay home, $100 a day to watch your kids, and a $1.00 raise. Dick’s Sporting paid their associates 3 weeks’ and the associates went on furlough. Unlike Walmart and Ceo Doug McMillon,  out in front of the camera every day telling and sell lies. The company gives 11cent raises no higher than 35 cents.  Walmart is a company that evaluates their associates before changing its format and hours in the store. The majority of the supervisors, support managers, department managers step down from their positions, The assistant managers and co-managers are demoted at the dropped of a dime. In the evaluation, Walmart failed the managers/supports/ assistant managers/supervisors in the area they do not INSPIRE their associates. Walmart and CEO Doug Mcmillon do not INSPIRE their employees. This company will HIRE 150,000 more employees to Devalue and expose to COVID-19. You call this company and CEO responsible.

ATTENTION WALMART ASSOCIATES!

Walmart removed a process connected to evaluations. The process was as followed:

1.) warning/verbal

2.) 1st coaching

3.) 2nd coaching

3.) 3rd coaching/termination

Walmart has gone straight to the heart of the matter and the associate’s pockets. Solid Performance year after year doesn’t mean an associate is safe. The needle did not move. Walmart loves to create its own rules.  Walmart does not make laws. How many times are management called out by policy flaws? The next time an associate is called to the assistant manager’s office the conversation can go like this. Walmart is hiring 150,000 new associates and I see you have not made any improvement in the last three years. How do you think this scenero will play out? Oh Wow! What happens to the associates with 3 Need Improvement in their evaluations? Need Improvement is the 3 strikes you are out of the program/job. So to all of the associates push back on your intentional negative evaluations. The law will look at age, race, gender, pay discrimination, and retaliation. Weaponizing the evaluation=wage suppression. Walmart is looking at another way to target certain employees to fire.

What has Walmart done for their associates other than risk the associate’s mental/emotional, physical health, and now the associate’s life? You will not get a copy of your evaluation unless you sign it or make a comment to acknowledge it. Don’t fret, something will go wrong with the machine and you will never see that evaluation. Walmart is very strategic at telling the associates BS and getting the associates to sign their life away. Walmart is ILLEGAL EAGLES.

To Mika Brzezinski Scarborough and Joe Scarborough, I was checking out Shawshank Redemption. Morgan Freeman said we can get busy living or get busy dying. Praying for all of you guys at MSNBC. I have learned so much. A special bond form between each member at MSNBC. I feel that way about the associates at Walmart. Send Sir Chris Matthews my special elbow. He will always forever be a knight at MSNBC roundtable. I am very hopeful. Let’s get busy Living. This is Linda Garrett from store 2857 Boardwalk Square, Kansas City, Mo. Mika and Joe, people get pissed off when you mention their name. That is why I put my name at the top.

COVID-19 is the new sheriff in town. Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon will not play by the rules or end up in court. You can not put a price on a life. Time is the most priceless commodity. We can’t give Time Adjustments when Death waits in line at our Supercenters and Neighborhood Markets. COVID-19_Walmart. Shut the store down. Where is the Store Manager? Where is Dr. Who? Just got word he is leaving the store. Hmmm! The customers are stampeding the store with their income tax and stimulus checks. Crowd control is out of control. The employees are terrified.

A disappearing act by Walmart, CEO Doug McMillon, and the EOC (Emergency Operating Center) took place during the mental health crisis of their Employees before COVID-19? Who created the mental madness for the overworked, exhausted, abused and punished employees? Walmart along with CEO Doug McMillon got some hell-a-fie PR. The real truth has revealed itself. Death brings out the Best or the Beast. Death doesn’t care if you are the 1% or have no cents. There are no pockets in a shroud. Death does not discriminate. Death waits in line to participate. Ari Melber of MSNBC understands All Eyes on You Walmart. RIP Machiavelli.

Walmart decided to inflict pain, humiliation, hurt, shame, and wage suppression by weaponizing the evaluations. Customer Service Managers (CSMs) were devastated. Coach, Sandy Harrison played a big part in evaluating the front end. Sandy arrived from another store around September 2019. Harrison has been at store 2857 for a short period of time. The CSMs felt Coach Sandy had not been at Walmart long enough to evaluate the supervisors. I totally agree. I got an F also. Now you know what happens when you do not buy into Walmart draconian system. You can use the open door for grievances. Employee’s lives are on the line. The new method of open-door policy should extend to News Media, Advocates, and attorneys. A directory of resources is coming to a theater near you.

Sandy Harrison never worked one day overnight. My shift is 10:00 pm-7:00 am. I have no coaching on my record. The other associates say they have no coachings. I don’t remember having any conversation with Sandy Harrison about my job performance. We talk. Sandy Harrison works morning and mid shifts. How can you evaluate a person without working their shift or knowing how the overnight shift is operated? Whew! There are managers who spirits are broken by demotion from Walmart. There are managers who have an axe to grind. There are managers who are very new to the company.  Who do you have to evaluate the associates objectively? I thought it was horrible that Assistant Manager Sam was the bearer of bad news. Facial recognition speaks volumes. Sam had the butterfly over his mouth. I sat across from Sam feeling like Clarice. There sat Anthony Hopkins, Hannibal Lector eating my brains.

I went on my Star Trek journey. I went where no associates have gone before. I landed in the movie Wrong Turn. I talked to Clive Owen from the movie Derailed. I had lunch with Matt Damon and Don Cheadle. Don looked at me and said you are the star of the movie Crash. Bottom line, If Store Manager, Philip Shelton got and F you best believe the majority of the store associates would get an F also. Would it get reversed by the Walmart Ethics committee? CSM Rodney is the expert in this conversation. He needs to be heard by Regional Manager Steve and HR Dana. Hunger Games Begin. What! Regional Manager Steve is leaving too. Hmmm! CSM Rodney make sure you get hold of Dana or Steve before Walmart take out yet another market team.

Apple Tv (Tim Donald Cook, Chief Executive Officer of Apple, and his crew) thank you. Netflix (Wilmot Reed Hastings, Co-founder, and CEO and his crew) thank you. My mind is in maximum overdrive processing movies totally different. CEO Doug McMillon, the advisor to the man with no name became the star of Sleeping With The Enemy. Death had no name. My lens process the man without a name as Meet Joe Black. Joe Black’s late start on COVID-19 cost many lives in this country. Was this an act of intentional behavior against New York, California, Louisiana, Chicago, Florida, and any area that is low income, no income, and race-related. Basic Instant leads me down the path to Cape Fear. Movie watching has placed me back in my gasoline drawers. Will Walmart follow this path?. Will The Empire Strike Back?

You can Google the article, Where It’s Going: Walmarts $25 Million COVID-19 Commitment. Walmart breaks down the distribution of funds I’m cool with that. Walmart needs to COMMIT to the Employees across the nation who are putting their life on the line keeping their stores operational. Giving their employees the necessary tools to stay SAFE and ALIVE. The employees need to know the company they work in. Jeopardizing any life is dangerous. On any given day the associates, customers, and the world need to know the Facts. Smiling Faces is Walmarts symbol and national anthem. Beware of the pat on the back. Walmart employees are afraid and under attack. COVID-19_Walmart.

Walmart needs to Rethink its operations. Close their stores especially at 2857 in Kansas City Mo. Focus on the weakest part of the store which always has been the grocery side due to lack of help. Walmart CEO Says You Should Stop Stockpiling Food And Supplies in Saturday paper. You can Google this article too. Walmart needs to lose the attitude of Business As Usual and put their associates first like Costco, Hyvees, Aldi, Price Chopper.

The award goes to Costco for the video on keeping their customers and associates safe during COVID-19 Pandemic. Costco did not take back returns and Walmart did. Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon need to takes lessons. We lost several associates to Costco. Why? Costco has a reputation for caring and treating their associates with dignity and respect. Formal Walmart employees stated Costco paid more and their benefits were way better. Word Up! What About Us! Check out Pink video. Pink and her son were affected by COVID-!9. Read the article on April 9, 2020. Pink Speaks Candidly about Getting COVID-19 With Her son on “Ellen.” Thank You, Pink for becoming one of the many Oscar Schindlers of Schindler’s List. Where is Walmart videoes/movie?  Change the game it is Traning Day. Good movie to watch.

Train the frontline of (cashiers, CSMS) to do grocery picks. Use the conveyor belts on the registers to help push the grocery orders through at a faster rate. Keep this format to boost online groceries (OGP) and stock the grocery side until this Pandemic is lifted. Kill the 6:00 am bum rush in the store. The great stampede has struck fear in the hearts of all the employees at Walmart store 2857 Boardwalk Square. It would keep the CSM safe from the money in the filthy cash office with no ventilation. CSMs and other members of management would have little to no contact with customers because of closing registers, self-checkouts, and stores.

Stores in the Kansas City area shut down at midnight before COVID-19. The store north of the river on Boardwalk Square was overwhelmed with customers. We could not provide the appropriate customer service before COVID-19. The store was not properly staffed. The schedules cut hours at the front end. Our shelves were not properly stocked. Our store has several violations. The store was contaminated before COVID-19. Regional and district managers were constantly in the store. The Store Manager, Phillip Shelton, and other members of management were warned to get the store in compliance. Walmart’s system of One Best Way is Not the Best Way. My Way or the Highway cannot be the attitude or position taken with COVID-19_Walmart. Walmart made policy changes. Not Willingly!

Thank you, Steve (Regional) and Dana(HR), for hearing me out. I give credit where credit is due. I have struggled with the Home Office throughout the years in this store. I have stated Home Office is not my friend nor my Homie due to a lack of trust. Kent Gurkie, District Manager, Mike Gray (RIP), District Manager along with his sidekick Connie Freeman were good people. They engaged the associates and made changes in the store. Hear me out once again. Walmart took out a whole market team in one swoop. Good People! The Predator has Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny Glover Pissed. It’s hard to gain trust watching Walmart takedown decent people. Every time Steve (Regional) and Dana(HR) entered the store they have always treated me with respect.

Steve (Regional) and Dana(HR), I was very disappointed with the way the front end and other employees throughout the store have been treated. It was hard to catch Store Manager Philip Shelton. I didn’t know if he had gone on vacation, in meetings, or doing his daily store walks with other members of management. I didn’t know his hours. Other store manager’s hours were much early than Philip Shelton. I notice something.

Today, I want the associates and other members of management to look at the store receipt. Do you see the entire name of the store manager? If it is there he just placed it there. One of my neighbors was kind enough to pick some milk up from the store. As of 4/17/2020, Philip Shelton’s name is not on the receipt from my purchase. I did not want to leave the store without asking Philip Shelton why did he remove his last name from the store receipt. As of 4/20/2020, Philip Shelton’s name is not on the receipt. Since Philip Shelton is leaving I guess there is no reason for his name to be on the receipt.

I went out sick on 3/24/2020. Philip Shelton’s name has been missing for quite a while. Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego? Joey Richie told me many years ago he was proud to have his name on the receipt. Joey stated, whatever happens, Joey Richy could hold his own and take responsibility and be held accountable. During that time Joey Richie was the right person and the right hire for this store. Joey Richie was proud of the associates and his achievements at store 2857. Store Manager Joey Richie did an excellent job. When Joey Richie and Co-Manager Brent got wind of a visit from Regional they would bring a set of clothes and spend the night at Walmart to be prepared for their visit in the morning. Philip Shelton will be exiting Walmart store at 2857 and will continue his journey at another store in Texas. Have a safe journey, Philip Shelton. Just a reminder, John Kennedy, Senator of Louisianna is not related to Ted Kennedy (RIP),senator of Massachusetts. Blake Shelton is not related to Philip Shelton. Love to hear Joe hammer John Kennedy on how fake he is. It brings a smile to Mika’s face.

Not one of the managers listed below ever removed their name: Martha Blood, Joey Richie, Jerry Reed, Scott Snow, Michael Hunter, Randall Addison, Mark Hoyt, and George whose name I can’t recall right now. I will come back to his name. Did you notice there was only one woman store manager mentioned? Walmart is notorious for gender, pay, and promotion. Check out Walmart Stores, Inc. v Dukes-Supreme Court. 564 U.S. 338 (2011). There were managers who would correct the customers if they didn’t say their full name. I remember a store manager informing a customer not to call him by his first name. They made it clear no first-name basis. Whew! Notice we didn’t have but one woman name on the list. Got me singing, It’s A Man’s World. Godfather of Soul, James Brown.

This was a big scene from the movie Mission Impossibles, Fallout. I was done. All I could think about was the former Store Managers introduce themselves to the customers they would say their full name. Marvin Gaye walked in the door. He begins to sing What’s Going On. What did Philip Shelton have to hide? I didn’t want to leave the associates and other members of management in the hands of a Store Manager who didn’t take responsibility for the store or doesn’t care. Don’t you think the customers deserve the right to know his name? One of Walmart’s famous principle is Lead by Example. COVID-19 is running its campaign. Death will make an example out of the lives of Walmart employees. Death will take the lead if Walmart continues to do business as usual. Hot-line time! Submit a tip to Bloomberg News, VLAD or VOX.

Vice President Joe Biden, Deleware: Senator Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts: Senator Bernie Sanders, Vermont: Senator Cory Booker, New Jersey: Senator Kamala Harris, California: Senator Stacy Abrams, of Georgia, do really think Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon care? Walmart made a killing on the toilet paper, sanitizer, paper towels, wipes, and disinfectants.

All the associates receive is $300. PR That! Check his salary out. This is not the movie Hidden Figures. Walmart loves promoting men over women, paying women less. Women can be more than cashiers, maintenance personnel, door greeters, department managers, coaches, assistant managers. Come on now. CEO Doug McMillon started out as a cart pusher at Walmart. He should be called Doug Mc-MILLIONS. I wonder what Michael Bloomberg calls CEO Doug McMillon?

The 1% is far from perfect and will not escape to Gattaca. In the movie, Gattaca, people had to be genetically perfect to go into space. Ethen Hawke, Uma Thurman, Jude Law reassures me, CEO Doug McMillon will not go to outer space. CEO of Walmart missed critical opportunities. He failed to fix his country. Judd’s teleconference with Ru Paul ended with Ru Paul telling CEO Doug McMillon, “Don’t F*ck It Up.” Too late! Matt Damon, who starred in the movie Elysium, said Walmart CEO McMillon shall remain on earth with the poor and 65 +. Jodie Foster, first lady president in outer space, stated Walmart Inc. nor CEO McMillon won’t be allowed to breathe Elysium’s air. Although- McMillon has money, Doug will always be viewed as a second class citizen and cart pusher. Michael Bloomberg views CEO Doug McMillon as a man with no Spaceballs. This is not West World but this is CEO Doug McMillon’s salary.

CEO Doug McMillon Executive Compensation of 2019:

$1,276,892 Base Pay

Don’t forget to visit www1.salary.com to view CEO Doug McMillon’s salary from 2009-2019. You can check out his crew salary too. Walmart associates only received $300 one time. Part-time received $150 as a Thank You for working through COVID-19. You can thank the associates by supplying them with the necessary tools to save their lives. I’m quite sure the employees would be so happy with the $569,953 total other in Mc-MIllion’s package.

Where are the Walmart Employees guard shields for their registers, masks, and hand sanitizers? Okay! Guarde shields are finally up. These associates need the appropriate cleaners and approved cleaners to wipe down their areas. Concentrate on the employee’s lives instead of cleaning the d**n floor. Maintenance is so understaffed. The machines are always broken down. The machine in the cash office is a death trap, without any ventilation and no one ever has done any maintenance to its floors. What good was painting the door to the cash office? Get some ventilation in there are pull the door off. Man!

The lives of all Walmart employees are at risk. I’m sitting here reading about the 2 Walmart workers who worked at the same store passed away from COVID-19 in Evergreen Park in Chicago. How long has Walmart and every person in retail industries, banks, etc have known about COVID-19? Many of the Associates at store 2857 Boardwalk Square in Kansas City Mo. were told that big/massive changes would be taking place in April. Strange, that information was discussed around the store in mid or late December.

Walmart could not plan for success to get ahead of the virus. Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon did not serve our customers and drive customer experience. Why? Our store was dirty and had many customers complaints along with store violations before COVID-19 struck. A Now Hiring sign resides at the front entrance. Help was needed over on the grocery side. The grocery was never properly stocked for lack of associates. Walmart has the money to contract for a professional cleaning and floor crew. Old associates will be overworked and new associates will not stay. The new associates did not sign up to be pulled in a thousand different directions.

Work felt like punishment. Associates started calling in. They wanted to transfer out of the store. Transfers were blocked by Phillip Shelton, the store manager. This was before COVID-19. Now the associates in great fear of their lives want out.”Lives Do Matter”. Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon PR staff need to email Walmart INC. and let them know they are no longer in charge. Death has taken the reigns. Death has come off its intermittent leave of absence. There will be no Time Adjustments. Walmart was never in charge. The BODY COUNT will rise due to Income Tax Checks and Stimulus checks. Customers overcrowding the store and not keeping their distance once again will endanger the lives of the Employees. SHUT THE STORE DOWN!

Once again March appears to be the month for destruction and disruption. Walmart is behind the times of Netflix. Evaluations were weaponized to take the associates down to a new low. Wage suppression, pay discrimination has knocked on the door of Store 2857 at Boardwalk Square. Along comes age discrimination, race discrimination, entering through the side entrance. The bullying and harassment pimped a new style in the form of shaming members of management and associates to risk their lives for a company that has never given a d**n about the physical health or mental health of the associates. What did Netflix do with their evals?

Shaming Process:

1.) Shaming members of management and associates to come to work when they are sick. Now that COVID-19 has struck Walmart, Walmart is trying to change its tune. Before COVID-19 Walmart did not operate this way. Behind the scenes, Walmart is still shaming members for not coming to work. Visit abetterbalance.org. Walmart got checked on their workers right on the attendance policy.

2.) Shaming associates to work overtime and in return stripping the time they have put in. Overtime doesn’t pay off. This was before COVID-19.

3.) Shaming members of management of a poor job of how the store looks. There is a Now Hiring sign on the door. Where is the Beef? Where are the employees?

Associates who chose to stay and work for Walmart for years or now older. The opportunity to retire will not happen. Forced out of your job comes next. Now you can lose your life. I have always told many of the associates if it’s not life-threatening don’t fear. Death is not an open-door policy. Death is not negotiable. Death forces you out of life. Walmart Corporation and Ceo Doug McMillon have taken their employees down to the lowest point of their life. Death Takes A Holiday will not happen at Walmart.

Walmarts greatest achievement is destroying the mental health of the associates so there is no oxygen in the room to hear their voices. Associates were never given the 5Ps. 1.) Praise employees regularly. 2.) Prioritizes employee’s health and wellness. 3.) Put yourself in the employee’s shoes (empathy). 4.) Pay employees what they are worth. Do Not Have them pay with their lives. 5.) Provide growth and development. No love is given.

What is truly sad is most employees are told or feel forced to sign an evaluation they disagree with. Associates feel compelled to sign. If the evaluation is not acknowledged you can not get a copy. Unbelievable! The majority of Supervisors, Department Managers, Support Managers Assistant Managers, Co-Managers, Store Managers have either been demoted or they step down from their positions. Why? When Walmart fails the employees fail.

Walmart is big on demoting, demeaning, and stomping on women’s self-esteem. Walmart pays women far less than they pay men. Walmart is at the top of its game on gender discrimination. I recall a conversation with Coach Sandy Harrison. I asked Coach what was her rank. Was her position like a Co-manager? Coach Sandy Harrison said, “I’m just nothing but a glorified assistant manager”. Just a what! What the hell! It was devastating to hear Sandy Harrison say those words. In my nineteen years at Walmart, I have heard those words over and over. I closed my eyes tight. My gasoline drawers turned me into a flame thrower. Whew! Writing about it piss me off! All women working for Walmart Inc. fighting for equality did not lose the battle only the lawsuit of Walmart v Dukes, 564 U.S. 388 (2011) the United States Supreme Court Case. Women will not buckle but continue to fight for their rights.

Throughout my years I witness Walmart’s cruelty, arrogance, selfishness, non-caring, narcissism, backstabbing, betrayal, not taking responsibility, shaming/blaming. Who does this sound like? Mirror image to Meet Joe Black. Who is the Advisor who missed opportunities for putting the country back together? I witness associates/members of management stressed to the max. Employees medicating themselves just to get through the night. The tears never stop flowing. I couldn’t help but notice associates who said they didn’t drink but started drinking. Liquor and cigarettes replaced eggs and pancakes. Associates turn themselves into a human chimney. I couldn’t believe the packs of cigarettes they purchased.

Walmart is terrible for women’s self-esteem. Walmart wants its employees to fall in line, do Walmarts bidding, and go along with Sh*t Hole Decisions that never work. Walmart, CEO Doug McMillon and the rest of the Hateful 8 shouldn’t tangle with Jango. I can hear Samuel Jackson now, “What The F*ck. Get your popcorn ready and check those movies out on Apple TV and Netflix. Stay in and watch movies, play games, do Tik-Tok, and stay safe.

Here’s that famous scene from The Exorcist. My head spun around and I started to piss on the carpet. We were short on maintenance and Mary was having a rough night. The wet mop machine to clean the floor was down as usual. We didn’t need two pissy associates on the floor. My face couldn’t turn any color with me being luscious dark chocolate. I started to throw my wig on the floor but I had just bought it. The floors were really dirty. Whew! Human hair is expensive.

Sandy Harrison did what she was told, instead of making the right decision. Walmart is very divisive.  You have to be very careful about doing other peoples’ bidding.  What happens when that person leaves? Who gets stuck with the blame? Walmart does not want any women associates to put their heads together with a class-action lawsuit. Discrimination in the areas of age, race, gender, sexism, wage suppression, retention, hiring, promotion, retaliation, harassment is Walmart’s way of putting women on the role back wall to clear women out. Sandy Harrison should have worked at least one month overnight. Harrison would realize Walmarts One Best Way does not work. Overnight is different from the day shift. The entire shift of overnight is understaffed. Walmart’s attendance policy failed under COVID-19. The attendance policy failed way before COVID-19.

EEOC and http://www.abetterbalance.org called Walmart out on attendance, pregnancy, workplace rights. Time magazine recognized A Better Balance as a leader in the fight for equality. Visit http://www.abetterbalance.org website and read the Families First Coronavirus Response Act which provides relief to working families passed by Congress. Learn about your employer.

There are 4 areas Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon Fail

1.) Know Your Customers and Drive Customers Experience.

2.) Know Your Business and Achieve Customer Results.

3.) InSpires Other

4.) Planning For Success

Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon failed in all four areas. That is why Walmart associates will never be paid what they are worth. Who is the true failure? Who loves never taking responsibility for anything? Who thinks they have total Authority? Who blames everyone else but themselves? Who is out every day talking about the changing trends in Walmarts and all they are doing for their employees. Who is the advisor to I have Complete Authority? Right! Walmart’s and CEO Doug McMillon leads by example. Same Players, Same Lies, Same Playbook, Same ideas of opening up the economy trending on a different day.

Never let anyone tell you your strength is a weakness. Never let anyone say you are weak. Strengthen the areas of your weakness. One day your weakness may become your greatest strength. Hold your own and be strong. Stand up for your beliefs. Remember you are not alone.

Implanted in my brain are the words spoken from Number 44’s mouth (formal President Barack Obama), “You Just Can’t Make This Up” As I leaned back into my chair I could hear his voice circulating around my ears saying “Know This”. I had to go back in because I knew it was something that I was missing. Everything that was subtle and invisible became crystal clear. Clocking in with Death every night heighten my senses. In the Color Purple Celie played by Whoopi Goldberg told Albert played by Danny Glover, one day you’re gonna do right by me. I hope and pray one day Walmart and CEO Doug McMillon do the same for all of the employees who are risking their lives for Walmart.

Thank You Google and Apple for tracking COVID-19 and saving lives. Here was my way of tracking Walmart. I hope I changed lives. Find out what rights you have. Start at abetterbalance.org. Work your way to Alliance For Justice. Ease on down the road with moveon.org. Visit the daily.dot.com and read 10 Reasons Walmart is the worst company in America (March 1, 2020).

Walmart plans to hire 50,000 more associates as of Friday, April 17th. Walmart’s total comes to a whopping 150,000 more part-time and temporary workers. Walmart is 6 weeks ahead of schedule. Wow! We have entered the movie Death Race. No matter how many associates are hired by Walmart COVID-19 will take the lead. Will Walmart be held accountable for 150,000 more lives? This world is not Walmart’s World.

Charleston Heston (1970) realized he was back on earth when he saw the Stature of Liberty broken on the shore. Everything had changed. The Apes had taken over (Planet Of The Apes). The monkey on our worlds back is COVID-19. The monkey made its presence in 1983 as HTLV-3 or HTLV-III now known as HIV.  We made it through. My friend with a yellow pen. One day it will all end. At this moment in time, it is a shame and a sin. Our lives will move FORWARD from the shelter in place we live in. Our nation will rebuild and start living to the fullest again. Never forget to MOVE FORWARD.  Whose LOGO was that? BRING IT!

You were absolutely right Number 44, you just can’t make this Sh*t Up. Dropping the PEN and I’M OUT.

Unforgettable__The List

It felt as though I was humming to the tune of Nat King Cole’s Unforgettable. Was it Lee Major who played in the FALL GUY? If you are not sure going forward in making a decision don’t forget to reach into your pockets and pull out the TRUSTED ADULT. Your business should be Comfort Zone LLC so you can sing Alicia Keys, Diary/Secrets. We will hope for the best and may your secrets fall into the hands of someone you can truly say, “Your Secrets Are Safe With Me.” It won’t be Chris Christie. Baby! Are you about to be fired? Please tell me Chris Christie was not trying to sing Nappy Roots song, Po Folks. You know the part where he states he has lived in Jersey and he will croak in Jersey bit. Right! Right! Now he is beginning to understand Tupac, All Eyes On You. BUSTED! The Hawk, The Almighty Hawk, Mr. Wind has caught your back on the way out the door. Lou Rawls knew what he was talking about when he song Dead End Street. I guess being a contender for the Presidency looked quite appealing. The Governor might need to change course with his dream. If the General name keeps popping up, SAMSON and DELILAH (Bridget Kelly) will star in their next movie. You can call it Rockin’ With The Rockerfellows__ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT for the real Land Slide. Chris Christie is not a Grand Guardian. He guards his pockets only.

Who can be considered a Grand Guardian? It could be your momma, your daddy, brother, sister, a close friend, relative, minister, an attorney, a person you TRUST with your story. The Media has become quite an effective choice and has become very popular. Hell! It sounds like SUPERFLY. Some people have had success with Twitter. A wonderful example is a young lady who Tweeted out 3 Rochester Teens standing on the sidewalk waiting for the bus who was about to get arrested for blocking traffic. Happy! Happy! Happy! These young BROTHERS coach was their Grand Guardian. Lawrence O’Donnell threw down on this exclusive story ARRESTED ROCHESTER TEENS SPEAKS OUT. You go Lawrence O’! This is what I call true Arrested Development. I like their songs too. Go ahead Mr. Wendal. Pay attention because we are beginning to see some new strategies to save ones A…

Whew! I’m so glad these three young Brothers were not Andy Asperger, Nathan NLD, and Tommy Tourette Syndrome. The Flip Side Of The Chart will not stand a chance. These Brothers wouldn’t be Rockin’ with the Rockerfellows. They aren’t affluent. Who will get the shaft? The middleman has been cut. Mental Institutions are not much of an option. Moving Forward with modern technology and the Winans forecasting Teddy Riley’s Time To Make That Change it is definitely a New Jack Swing. Bottom line just makes sure you are not standing in front of the Grand Jury. This is not to be confused with your Grand Guardian. Well, depending on the verdict. If it rides in your favor, Hallelujah! Can I Get An Amen Or Not?

Steve Kornacki was pushing the interrogation factor. Keep asking the question until you get the right answers. If you are not sure about the answer to find your Grand Guardian, fact checker, or the most reliable News Media that is BUSTING LOOSE with THE TRUTH and throwing down like Chuck Brown and the Soul Searchers. Google It! Bing It! SING Ya-HOOO-ooo! Check this out. When my girl was a guest on Up with Steve Kornacki you notice Dawn Zimmer, the mayor of Hoboken had her Alicia Keys Diary/Secrets. I just want all my Brothers and Sister over on the Flip Side Of The Chart to remember this precious strategy. If you struggle with writing, the keyboard on the computer may give those fingers some ease. If you can’t put your thoughts on paper get a tape recorder. Go to your FACEBOOK wall where you can share or make it public or private. For those of you who can get to the point in 140 words or less and is just D.. short-winded, Twitter is for you. For those of you who have more to say, Do Your Thang on FACEBOOK. Don’t throw your conversation E-Mails away. Think of it this way. E stands for Evidence and it might save your A… one day or you may get burned depending on what is in the E-mail. Thank GOD for modern technology and what it has brought to our ever-changing world. Change is the fuel in which a mule refuses to move forward. The mule is cool with the acceptance of stubbornness. Jack-Ass!

Where is that List? Unbelievable! It was right here all the Time. Check Bobby D out. Man! Look at the sweatshirt Bobby D wore to school. Back in the day, we called it a cheat sheet. Your A… was out partying instead of studying for the test. The key to scoring on the test was knowing where to position yourself if you’re going to get the majority of the right answers. The person on the opposite end of the spectrum knows it is a cheat sheet. Intentional behavior is about to make its move. The person on the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART doesn’t realize it is a cheat sheet. Interrogation TIME! Bobby D is pissed because my Boi on the Flip Side is asking all these questions and drawing attention to Bobby D shirt. What! So the teacher wants to get her test on. Hold Up! Hold Up! She has to find out why the commotion is in motion. As she approaches Bobby D the answer just jumps out. Bobby D thinks my Boi has snitched. Bobby D is removed from the classroom. Here we go with the “Meet me at 3:30 your A.. is mind.” WHOA! Mr. Intentional Behavior is not going to pass the test either because he was out with Bobby D and he invented the shirt. Did we make any friends today? On top of it all, somebody is about to get thrashed.

A person who can’t focus and trouble with concept formation can hang it up. Do you know how hard it is for some people to put their ideas in a group? Comparing and contrasting is horrible. Did you actually think knowing what is relevant and irrelevant was going to happen right this minute? No! It will take TIME, patient, and a person who is willing to be the grownup in the room to say they understand. Are you willing to teach and teach and teach? On the Flip Side Of The Chart, there are so many people who are so willing to learn. Stop being HATERS and frustrating the great minds who process information differently. It must be understood on the Flip Side Of The Chart Thomas Edison light bulb will take a minute to be turned on. When it comes to the glow is Awesome! We will not roll out the fight on Christopher Columbus and my BOI Lief Erikson. Discovery just ain’t our thang. It is cool to give credit where credit is due. We just need concrete information and the TRUTH to be square. Do not take the ZOO-ZOOs and WHAMS-WHAMS away. You are going to piss the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART off. I hope you don’t think making an example out of people you fail to teach are going to be receptive to punishment. Come on! Take responsibility. You don’t think when Bob McDonnell, formal governor of Virginia got his ZOO-ZOOs and WHAM-WHAMs took away he wasn’t pissed. INTENTIONAL! MHP, the price of chicken has gone up.

Unforgettable! Please tell me when you hear about NLD Syndrome you will be able to hold a decent conversation on the topic. If you know anyone who appears to be unique treat the person with dignity and respect. Your lightbulb might be screwed in too tight. Loosen up and adjust. Help create an inclusive environment for a BROTHER or a SISTER. Just a friendly reminder to let your A.. know a BROTHER and SISTER doesn’t mean BLACK FOLKS ONLY (BFO). OKAY!

NLD Syndrome called Nonverbal Learning Disability is a developmental disability in which the individual demonstrates a mature vocabulary, rote memory skills, excellent reading abilities. Who does this look like to you on the opposite end of the spectrum? Mr. so-called Normal! Hmmm! Children/Adults have difficulty interacting with others (same age peers or not), transitioning to new settings, working in different environments (whether or not it is at school or on the job), WHEREVER under the UMBRELLA, UMBRELLA, UMBRELLA… Stop it RHIANA! Working with anyone and anything NEW can cause a major BOO BOO in the world of NLD. It’s all good on the opposite end of the spectrum the GOP, Republicans, and Tea Partiers was totally out of touch and sync. NLD Syndrome Traded Places and it was not with Eddie Murphy. On the Flip Side Of The Chart, it is called Work With Me Program. From where I’m sitting, WHOOP! WHOOP NLD Syndrome we are rooting for you. Sure NLD has problems with writing and fine motor skills. So did Rand Paul, Senator from Kentucky. This dude from the opposite end of the spectrums had problems with his writing skills too. Hell, he decided to steal someone else’s work. What was wrong with his fingers? Right! Right!

NLDers has exemplary reading skills. So did Ted Cruz, Senator from Texas, with his Green Eggs and Ham BS. He totally misinterpreted the D.. story. People diagnosed with NLD Syndrome want to get it right. What can we say for this sucker IDIOT-OLOGY Ted Cruz? What did he achieve? Abstract concepts need to be explained in detail as the individual with NLD has a difficult TIME with understanding metaphors, emotional nuances, multiple levels of meaning and relationships issues. On the opposite end of the spectrum, The Golden Globe Pussy Willow Award goes to Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas, for his libido statement. Go Head Pimp Daddy Sugar! The second runner-up on the opposite end of the spectrum is State Senator Richard Black of Virginia for his belief that marital rape should not be a crime. This is not Joe Black’s brother and you definitely do not wish to meet him. You can find this article at Salon. By the way, Richard is living up to his name. Dick! Our third runner-up on the opposite in the spectrum is Foster Friess, Mr. Business Man Of The Year, with his aspirin still between his legs in his day and his mind only. There are so many HATERS on the opposite end of the spectrum. NLDers are not HATERS. What comes out their mouth is tough but the bottom-line is they can be redirected because they want to get it right. The HATERS on the opposite end of the spectra is caught in a Time Warp, Intent to do harm, love to fail, and do not wish to move FORWARD. Just give NLDers a description of abstract concepts. Make it simple and be patient. KISS 🙂 NLDers do not wish to fail and struggle with moving forward. It is a BIG D… difference.

1) NLDer have motor impairments causing difficulty in tasks that require dexterity, manipulations of small objects, and coordinated handling tasks such as writing, typing, buttoning buttons.

2) Attentional deficits cause people diagnosed with NLD Syndrome to have difficulty in coping with over-stimulating or distracting environments and requiring him/her to have limited distractions and assistance in focusing himself/herself.

Mayor Rob Ford, mayor of Toronto, Ontario Canada, demonstrated exactly what can happen to an NLDer on a regular day without the recreational drugs and booze. Strictly meaning bumping into people, accidentally mowing a person down and running head-on into an object. Rob is a Space Invader and just didn’t know what to do with his big voluptuous body. Poster Baby Justin Beaver is not too far behind. Did you know Ted Cruz, Justin Bieber, and Rob Ford all came from Canada? Should it really mean anything? See, that is how stereotyping gets started. Cut the Sh.. out.

3) Performing multiple tasks simultaneously can possibly Blow The Roof Off The Mother for NLDers. One thing at a TIME is good and limit the information you give to the task. Multiple commands are so counterproductive. On the opposite end of the spectrum, this happens many TIMES with the GOP and Kill OBAMACARE. Ask the baby who has to potty on himself and need their diaper change right away the response would be___SEE THERE. 🙁

4) Organizing material on NLDers watch is the Beatles singing HELP I NEED SOMEBODY. I mean not just anybody. Go get the Brother or Sister some HELP with writing outlines, determining how to sequence/order and prioritize, planning, and transitioning from one idea or aspect of a project to another.

Help me LAWD! On the opposite end of the spectrum, my BOI Chris Christie had A Whole Lotta Of Shakin’ Going On. He was not on the stage with Jerry Lee Lewis and The Outlaws. Will he be the next outlaw? Well, maybe he over-planned but he probably didn’t plan on this happening. Steve Kornacki, You Light Up My Life and I am singing George Clinton Flash Light. UP! UP!

5) Visual-Perception/Visual-spatial deficits. How persons interpret what he/she sees, understanding the boundaries of their environment and the boundaries in a relationship. Do Not Cross The Line. Just explain to the person in the right tone if they are standing to close if it flies over their head and they don’t get it. We don’t need to get in a shouting match. Be patient if the person is slow in gathering their thoughts. Explain to them information that is personal should not be shared on FACEBOOK. Stay out of the Abstract Zone and pour on the concrete. Please don’t go there with picture this. Do not say can you imagine. The response will be I can’t see a D.. thing. Can you? Just remember in order to put the pieces of the puzzle together get some gorilla glue because BABY you got some communicating to do. This will not take on the format of TWITTER (the 140 words or less). It is not happening. So gear up and get those jaws ready to do some talking. Parents do not get bog down or frustrated. Make it the happy moment TIME. Let your child/adult know you have a certain amount of TIME to spend on conversational skills and afterward you can party All Night Long just like Lionel Richie.

Are you lost Boo? You can’t read the map? Turn left on 68th street. Why are you turning right? Man! I’m in the car with a person who can’t tell their right from their left. It’s cool! I will drive the next TIME. Do not get into a WRESTLE-MANIA argument with an NLDer. Start singing Luther Vandross, Always and Forever. Make it clear it is okay to disagree. It doesn’t make either party right or wrong when it comes to a person’s opinion. How can you fail a survey? Facts are facts and make it clear you ask for their opinion. Say the right word so you can send the right message. To keep the NLDer from becoming frustrated, angry, and having those meltdowns. POINT IT OUT. Smokey Robinson did. I Am So Excited because I get this and I want you to get it too. Become a Pointer Sister or Pointer Brother. Ye-ah! Doctors spend a little more TIME checking out this area. Soooo I thought I would give it a lick-er-ty split. There is no one test to determine NLD SYNDROME. To all the parents out there, Heads Up! When Baby girl or Baby Boi can’t tie his/her shoe, ride a bike, trips and falls and nothing is in the way, don’t want to play with those LEGOS, takes forever to write, don’t seem to understand you are mom or dad and appears they are talking Sh.. to you, HOLD THE FORT DOWN. Beating a child is not the answer. The KEY is EDUCATION, DEDICATION, and making MEDICATION the last recourse to helping your child understand and cope with his Behaviors. Develop a plan, not an A.. whipping.

Drawing complex figures, and trying to understand higher levels of math can be hard (dyscalculia). On the opposite end of the spectrum, Paul Ryan gets the Award for Dyscalculia and his Forcible Rape statement. Let someone with NLD Syndrome make any of these scuzzy remarks and they will be up for grabs on all types of harassment or sexual harassment charges. To my NLDers don’t get frustrated. Listen to Whitney Houston and CeCe Winans, Count On Me and drink some hot tea. Feel better now. It is such a shame when the blame is placed on NLDers and other exceptionalities who are born with neurological behaviors. NLDers are not emotionally disturbed and should not be ostracized, criticized, isolated, nor punished for their UNINTENTIONAL BEHAVIORS. Make sure everyone involved in Operation Road Hog gets punished. INTENTIONAL BEHAVIOR!

6) Social Miscueing is where we need a real INTERPRETER. Interpreting the body languages is the monkey wrench found in your lunch bucket. Where is the lunch? Guess what? You are the lunch. NLDers get eaten alive because they cannot discern nonverbal cues. When you hear a person say they have a friend who doesn’t know where to start or end a conversation look out. If the conversation appeared to not make sense and was not simple or pragmatic I hope you are aware that you might be talking to Sarah Palin from the opposite end of the spectrum. She is the queen of Com-boo-very and Louie Gohmert, U.S. Representative from Texas, is the King of BS. NLders are winning the battle of Sanity from the FLIP SIDE OF THE CHART.

So what if you have trouble recognizing faces, taking people to mean what they say, you Get Jiggy Wit It and the other person feel insulted. I’m quite sure Will Smith, from the opposite end of the spectrum, had to Get Jiggy Wit It when people were all up in his business about his marriage and trying to drink his Kool-Aid. Sure you are going to have social blunders. The opposite end of the spectrum says gaffe. It was an error of the lips either way. Who will get punished? Right! Right! You guess it. It wasn’t because you are the Social Butterfly in your community or the Affluent one. As far as TRUSTING people and being NAIVE the opposite end of the spectrum racked up some points and ran away with the ball. Hey! They re-elected CHRIS CHRISTIE. I’m just saying!

7) It is TIME to take off the “Black and White” Tuxedo and break it down to the grey sweat suit. Grey yourself up so you can become flexible instead of having rigid ideas. Are you ready? Be like Guy and Let’s Chill.

Remember if you ever get called in the office on your job and the people are saying they just want FEEDBACK and it is not a VERBAL or a COACHING wait for the
shoe to drop. As you get older you have a tendency to forget. Sooo on January 25th approximately around 2:15-2:30 am, 2014 I just wanted to remind myself I was being held accountable for an ineffective job with little to no resources to get the job done. Okay! Remember to keep your diary, tape, and keyboard ready. E for Evidence. Unforgettable that’s what you are.

A Bite Of The Apple__A Tribute to Steve Jobs

Scene: This conversation takes place at Steve Jobs’ underground compound in the middle of who in the hell knows where. We are talking about Steve Jobs, Okay. Smokelbg has decided to pay Steve a visit and have a heart to heart chat.

Smokelbg:

Hey, where you at? Steve, Steve is you here? Hey man, you better show up real fast. Some of your neighbors are looking at me really crazy. I can’t believe this. Steve wears this outfit all the time. I wonder why I’m having so much trouble wearing these blue jeans and black tee-shirt? I don’t have no ski mask on. What is this, the neighborhood watch? Okay, I see how this works. Don’t make me show your neighbors who’re the real Mac Genius. Why you laughing Steve?

Steve:

Smokelbg, you are hilarious. I’m so glad you could drop by. It’s good seeing you. It has been a long TIME.

Smokelbg:

More like Delirious and you don’t hear me singing Prince’s song. Come on now, I didn’t just drop by. I had to catch 2 planes, sail across the Mojave Desert, take a boat through Vienna, sing Oleta Adam’s Song-Get Here If You Can, and stung gun your neighbor’s dog. Where did Cujo come from? Was he trained to take a bite out of crime? Hey, Prince designed his butt-out pants. I did not need any help from Cujo. Okay!

Steve:

What?! Is Fefe okay? He is harmless. He just wanted to play. I can’t believe you used a taser gun on Tim’s dog.

Smokelbg:

Did you say Tim’s dog? Please tell me I didn’t taser Timothy D. Cook’s dog. Damn it!

Fefe is the canine dog from hell. You should be asking is Smokelbg okay. Do I look like IAMS or Purina One Dog Chow to you? Where is this place anyway? Anytime Air Force One drops you off in the middle of the desert, you got to be hiding some secrets. I get along with dogs on a regular day but Fefe and I aren’t making any love connections. Can I use your bathroom? Ahhh! Steve, there is a robot up here in your bathroom trying to tell me how many square feet are in toilet paper. Steve get up here I push a button and I’m not sure if I Googled my butt across the nation. I just need some peroxide for my butt and I need to flush the toilet. Steveeee!

Steve:

Are you finding everything you need Smokelbg? There are some special treats behind the mirror glass shaped like an APPLE. This would make any woman’s head spin.

Smokelbg:

I don’t want my head to spin. I need some toilet tissue to keep me from having issues with Roberta the Robot who will not let me wipe my Ahh….! Steve get up here NOW!

Steve:

Oh, Dear, I meant to tell you if you put your hands in a certain position the robot will defend herself and put you in a headlock. Smokelbg, Tim designed the robot. It was a birthday gift for my daughter.

Smokelbg:

I should have known. Who is going to believe that my torn A… graduated with a whiplashed neck. Only at Steve’s Jobs compound. Do you have a pair of pants I can borrow and a soft pillow I can sit on?

Steve:

The pants may not fit. I mean they may be too long.

Smokelbg:

Just cut them in half… I need something to cover my butt.

Steve:

Hold tight, I got something that will make you feel really comfortable. There you go. I know how you like soft fabrics and this robe is just perfect. Smokelbg, I’m not cutting my pants.

Smokelbg:

Fair enough but I could have done without the APPLES on the robe. This robe feels like a giant cotton ball. Steve, it is TIME for us to take A BITE OF THE APPLE. Would you like to go first?

Steve:

Since you’ve come so far I want you to tell me what is on your mind.

Smokelbg:

I remember when I first told you about my son’s extraordinary mind, unique abilities, and multi-intelligence learning style. You looked directly in my face and said, Thank God he isn’t disabled. At least his head is still attached to his neck. I never liked labels that hinder people from achievement. At that point, I wanted to cry. You sat there and you listened to me go on and on about Nonverbal Learning Disability. You asked me to take a trip out to one of the APPLE STORES. I did and it was an amazing adventure. When I stepped out of the car and entered the store it begins to pull me and my son right into all the applications that could be purchased along with all the different products. My son and I were both dressed in our black tee shirts and blue jeans. We had struggled with the schools for years and it was TIME to move on and find the latest technology of teaching tools for home. Every person in the store regardless of race, age, and the geographical location was fascinated with the products. They were all interested in learning. We felt at home. Every school across the nation should feel this way for all children to hold their interest in learning. This store’s atmosphere was non-threatening, created a conducive environment and every customer in the store was paying attention. Steve, from the TIME I walked into the APPLE STORE there were people conversing, exchanging email addresses, and their cell phone numbers. My son began to really shine and start asking for numbers too. He didn’t get this opportunity at school. I thought he would become overwhelmed because the store was so crowded. He jumped right on it. He was so excited and he began to open up for the first time.

My son didn’t have to feel the hurt and pain of having manifestation hearings, getting suspended, or ever having to worry about another due process hearing. Most parents feel children who are labeled “disabled” will become budget cuts in the educational system. Why would you want to fix a child that was already broken? Why should a school system RECOGNIZE or make accommodations for a diagnosis that has not been validated by the AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATION? This store gave us a new way of looking at educating your child. It gave us hope outside of the educational system regardless what the educational system would or wouldn’t offer.

Why should a child go to school for twelve years of his life and find it hard to develop friends? It shouldn’t come down to TEST SCORES or the educational system FUNDING. Teachers shouldn’t be pressured to the point they LIE and CHEAT to bring children TEST SCORES up for ACCREDITATION. It should be about the child’s education because they are the ones who suffer the most. I kept trying to convince myself that I was in a store. This was more than just a store. Once again through your vision and innovation, something magical was going on inside the APPLE STORE that made people not want to leave and learn more. It felt safe, people’s’ questions were being answered, there was so much support, and the employees cared.

I was so glad when you met with PRESIDENT OBAMA, ERIC SMITH one of the founders of GOOGLE and MARK ZUCKERBERG, founder and CEO of FACEBOOK. All I could think of was, “If anyone could get the educational system on track it would be you guys.” Alternative methods of teaching children are on the rise. Steve, parents need to understand if they can’t find support in their own schools and districts then they need to find another way. APPLE STORE has created a learning environment. The educational system needed to take notes BIG TIME.

I found one of your sayings you had written on June 12, 2005, and it is your TIME to take a BITE OF THE APPLE. Do you remember Steve?

Steve:

I may not remember offhand but I can pull it up on my computer. Let me see. Hear it is.

Smokelbg:

Okay, you read it.

Steve:

You want me to read it.

Smokelbg:

Yes Steve, if you want to sing it you can. Just do it. This is your BITE OF THE APPLE.

Steve:

Here it goes. I look in the mirror and ask myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “NO” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.

Because of almost everything all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things fell away in the face of death leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

Smokelbg:

This is how I responded to your message on FaceBook. Hi, this Smokelbg. I have always been puzzled by those who are GONE but not FORGOTTEN. These are the ones that never die and live in our hearts forever. The impact they make in our lives leaves such a great impression. You see them so clearly. You remember the smell of their cologne, the sound of their laughter, and their wonderful words of wisdom. We walk around every day of our lives and we can’t remember the person’s name, what they wore that day, or where they work. Who is alive and who has passed on? There are many who are no longer with us. There are those who are expected to EXIT who will always have a PERMANENT ENTRANCE.

Steve, you have inspired me to be a follower of my heart. When Tim’s dog tore into my APPLE BOTTOM JEANS I looked back and saw that I too was butt-naked. It would be a shame if I survived cancer and not Tim’s dog. I just want the world to understand NLD Syndrome and hopefully, parents will understand there is another diagnosis out there they may need to check out. Everybody is not ASPERGER, AUTISM, or PDD-NOS. Good Grief! I want those parents out there asking questions, getting an early start on getting their child diagnosed, and not to be afraid. I don’t want to read any more ho-hum stories about NLD SYNDROME. I’m tired of the gloomy picture that is painted of people who have been diagnosed with NLD SYNDROME. These children/adults have to live with NLD SYNDROME and should not have to suffer the consequences of it. I want those doctors up, running, and developing strategies and coping skills and doing consistent testing for NLDERS. Sure DEATH is IMMINENT but to arrive at one’s destination at a much early TIME without any knowledge of knowing what you are up against is one hell of a trap.The KNOWLEDGE of KNOWING will help with INTERVENTIONS even if there is NO CURE it will give you HOPE.

DEDICATED: To STEVES JOBS of APPLE, who has given the EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM HOPE and has given the WORLD EVERYTHING OF HIMSELF. NLD Mom/cancer survivor
