Thanks giving AND Black friday sales

thanks giving is always fun and full of turkeys wherever you go..I pity the poor bird when officially used to celebrate it baking  for hours.. But then its always the nature has to be balanced .. otherwise it would be an explosion..
I may sound Americanized here but anything which brings happiness and families together there is no harm in celebrating that,I love thanks -giving and I celebrate every year.. Thanks giving reminds me of baisakhi in Punjab which is celebrated in the same way ...
..last night it was fun .. dinner with the relatives from Toronto..Big huge turkey ..with all side dishes and then PUNJABI food later on ..we Punjabis are like that would mix our stuff for sure.. and then midnight shopping ..this year all the major stores opened their door during mid-night .. DEALS DEALS DEALS..
I had marked my exclusive items and the stores to be shopped ..without wasting single penny here n there and jus hitting on bulls eye ...
so like a determined Beaver I landed early morning ..and picked up shoes ..knee length (leather) ..Wow!jus 20 bucks from $50 ... another pair ..from $180 to 70 bucks
another shot .. it was Guess jacket ... a steal deal ..from $200 to $80 .. wow!
..ok now I was moving aimlessly here n there but then I saw  Ralph Lauren ..sweat shirt for my dear hubby on deal .. it was from $180 to $50..super!!!grabbed it ..those who are wondering which store it is ,,,so my lovelies its MACY ..which gave some break to their customers.. those of you who love COACH ..they had  put on clearance for jus $193 from $258 ..But I dint buy cuz its still expensive and it was canvas purse .. whole damn world is carrying same kind ,, so jus left it..
these deals are available till tomorrow ..(if the good stuff is still there)..but its fun shopping in early hours ..
..hope all my friends from north America had great time
happy thanks giving

people and behaviour

behavior is something which is seen during adversity when behavior is erratic .. behavior is connected to ego and when ego hurts it reflects grey shades in personality. People loose temper and it unleashes the worst scenario ever thought...

temper is something where very few people have a control on it.. they jus keep in mind "judge not" and take everything in their stride good bad or ugly .. but very few only 10% of general population..
it usually said ..people who are calm and spiritually inclined have more control to their temperament due to hours of meditation.
... Awareness is something which is required to keep in control yourself and others too..

I was at work and a customer stormed inn fuming with anger ..I looked at her calmly
"yes? how can I help you?" ..
she had some issues with her work order.. she wanted a refund..I asked her to read " Company Policy no Refunds "written in bold letters on wall ..
she started yelling.. I need to get my money back....I calmly replied I cannot go against company policy after that her temper took a full swing and slammed the office door ...
"She was an Indian women"
we as Indians have a bad habit of bargaining even at the best of places cuz its in our blood ..this we get from back home (even thou scenario back home has also changed but these people are in time freeze)using and abusing the places..

1)"wear the clothes and return them" get a full refund on the bill
2) abuse the coupons and try using them again n again (shamelessly)
3)try to be a smart Ass in spite of knowing the person you are dealing with is an Indian too..
4) shamelessly requesting to  wave the tax on cash purchases..

..I wont be shy to admit this here most of Indians and Pakistanis are same in habits when it come to abuse the narrate an incident where couple of  Asian (Pakistani)girls after buying stuff started arguing to wave the tax .. on cash purchase ..she yelled at me as I dint tell her that tax has to be paid .. the argument heated up and as a result I had to raise my voice to ask her " do you ask American stores and people working there the same thing? "do you behave the same way?"
she threw the check on my desk and slammed the door ...
I am surprised by behavior ...
... We carry what we had seen in family and culture back home to evade tax, how to abuse the privileges , how to shamelessly ask for half price ... how to  ask for free stuff with purchases ..its in our blood and we cannot improve ourselves ..our currency meter starts in conversion and we end up  in arguments showing worst of our behavior .. its actually we cannot accept  this reality... spending in dollars all we we want is to spend in rupees but earn in dollars everything has to be hunky dory without using an extra penny ,,,
Recently an indian restaurant owner around our areas was held for charges of evasion of tax .. he was watched by IRS from last three years before getting him with a penalty and yrs of imprisonment .. he was trying to be a Smart Ass but unfortunately (for him) bribe doesn't work in US,... it was published in local news paper...

..Why do we do that? why...cant we improve our self??

Great day in AMERICA .. obama re-elected.


 It was a great day in America .. Obama has been reelected ..four more years with good president.. a person with great vision and intellectual qualities .. a class apart. People who had big time doubts that only whites can rule the country ..their dreams are shattered ..
Bush had F****the entire nation AND blame was put on black president.. its a shame .. A guy who helped millions to get a job fact created small jobs so that no one sleeps hungry.. Got the economy out of deep debts .. brought back soldiers from Iraq.. shot Osama -bin laden ..went to his den got him by neck (the movie was premiered in US day before election .)it gave me goose bumps how they tracked him for two yrs.' before finally got hold of him.

...Republicans made lot of noise during the campaign did the supporters.. people who wanted to support Romney was jus as white president more then his intellectual qualities .Paul Ryan another clever Fox in town was nothing but full of lies .. both Romney and Ryan brothers from another mother should now act in Hollywood movies .. their political career is finished .. they made a  fool of themselves by making big claims before even knowing the correct figures .. their track record was one lie per minute( they cud have said more ..but it has a time limit).. At last they had to shut -up and this was from public legally Romney n Ryan .. (enough guys go home now)

..Republican's ..statutory  warning!! ..we have a bench mark .. your candidate has to have more intellectual qualities before making big claims!

..Elections in America is great fun.. nobody discusses political issues at work places whom they would vote or what happened in debate last night but the stress can be seen .. even after vote there is no discussion if nothing happened ..all discussion's are at home I guess in four sided walls democrats or republicans who is better?.. the basic idea is the country should be in good hands .. safe future for our kids.

George Bush A Great man in America F**** the whole economy made all jobs go overseas goin in debts .. real state falling like pack of cards .. people loosing jobs .. houses sold for a $ (Detroit area)whole subs on sale foreclosures. Layoffs .. Chrysler goin bankrupt ,people moving from state to state looking for jobs .. ladies who once had  their own business selling candies door to door!
this talent was shown by our George Bush our great republican (monkey face).and guess what?? he was reelected by trash jus becuz he had white skin.. and no brain wonder we are paying for his deeds till now ..after that  a major attack by terrorists was at twin towers9/11 was like a last nail in the coffin ...A worst president ever.. "A great republican.. however for great supporters of Bush"(dumb people)

I remember one line from our Holy book (guru granth sahib ji) "ethay saacho hi saach nibday"which means its jus truth and truth that will prevail. Nothing else will matter ..and
TRUTH ALWAYS WIN.. its a clear example election nov 7th 2012 ..Obama Won!
