Motel Employee stabbed by ballpoint pen

So, last night, I had just finished my the first part of my split shift for the day. As an assistant manager at the Rodeway Inn, I never thought I would have to deal with the following situation.

Mr. Stanton had just arrived with his students from Ririe Junior High School. They brought us about 20 or so rooms while they come on a field trip to Boise. The students were away from the Bus, as the teachers were unloading some things from the Bus. A customer had been at the Hotel for about a week. She thought it was a good idea to go out on her balcony and begin to cuss and yell and offend Mr. Stanton and the other teachers. And to top it off, she was being drunk and disorderly.

This was reported to my front desk clerk, Misty, who then reported it to me. I then had to ask Miss Nanette Gazlay to leave, because my job is to protect my customers. I gave her a few minutes to grab her things, she came down to the desk and gave my desk clerk a hard time. At 6:58 pm, I had no choice but to call Boise Police Dispatch. As I was talking to the dispatcher on the phone, Nanette ran up behind me and “stabbed” me in the back with a pen. I yelled “I have just been stabbed”.

Food Storage

Some time ago, we were at Costco and we saw “The Shelf Reliance Food Storage Rotation” systems.  I think the first time that we had seen them was at a Wal-Mart in Logan, Utah.  I loved them then, and everytime I saw one, I fell more and more in love with the thing.

“Food storage management has never been easier thanks to Shelf Reliance Food Rotation Systems.™ Available in four heights, three widths, and two depths, our food storage shelves were designed to easily store and rotate a large amount of cans. Every system features patented front-loading technology and fits easily into most storage spaces” (

Christmas 2009

Another Christmas has come and gone.  This year, felt like one of those where people just didn’t seem to get into the Christmas Spirit.  The part where I enjoyed most about Christmas was, just being able to spend time with the Family.  Krissie and I got some good gifts, but that Read more…


So I had a previous post where I mentioned that I have had a gun pulled on me.  In that post, Denise asked me to explain more.  So here it goes: My Dad used to own a furniture store.  The power went out, and when it came back on it caused the Read more…
