Don't mess with me City man!

I'm mostly happy at the turn out in Wylie today. There is one person I wish wouldn't have come out to see me...the City employee who organized the event. The same guy who asked us to rack up a tab for food at another Wylie event this past July and never payed. The same guy who received an email and invoice and decided to ignore it. 

(Maybe he thought because I was nice to him early this morning, that I forgot, but I didn't.) The same guy who threw a huge fit today in front of our Paying customers when he came to my window, asked to start another tab, and when I told him I wasn't going to do that since he nor the city ever payed what he/ they OWE us. Yes. 

A GROWN man, a city of Wylie employee, threw a very loud and very embarrassing fit in front of my trailer. Such a fit, that customers who witnessed it later asked me if everything was ok and if I was ok. Of course I was. I've had to deal with some characters in my time with La Rosita BUT, I have never had to deal with such an irate human being in front of customers.

 I just Thank God for helping me hold my tongue and my composure the way I did, because it was not a pretty site and had the potential to have gotten a lot worse had he caught me in another setting. 

He tried and tried to bully me.....with no success. He didn't realize that behind this smile that he initially received with his antics, is a strong woman, a business woman who will not be intimidated by anyone, let alone a man. A woman who isn't impressed by anyone's social status or job title and no matter what he thought he was trying to prove today, he was still shut down and put in his sorry little place.

Sorry. Rant over

Taking surveys to make extra money

It's been a while since I've posted about my adventures in survey taking.
There are so many great survey site and there are a few junk sites. I've had my run in with both types.
I'm glad to say that I've slowly weeded out the worthless survey sites and have been working hard with just a small handful of survey sites.

Some people think that survey sites are a scam. Well, they aren't. what they are is very selective.
Think about it this way, survey sites are sending out surveys to people who will make a difference in the marketplace. Business 101 tells you that companies do lots of research before they market their products to the general public. So what does this tell you? It tells me that companies are looking for people who will spend money. It's really that simple. So what kind of people spend the most money?

Well, in my experience, parents of young children seem to be the target demographic for many companies. They want to sell us their newest toys for Christmas, for children's birthdays, and for any other special occasion you can come up with. And its not just toys, it can be clothing, greeting card and even websites.

You sit back and think about that for a moment. Do you fall into a purchasing bracket in any of those categories?  If so, I have one of my favorite survey sites for any resident of the United States.
Click the link to get started. Give it a try, its free to sign up and it's free to participate, which any reputable survey site should be. YOU SHOULD NEVER EVER PAY to take ANY kind of survey. Remember, these companies need your opinion, you don't need them!

Blowing out the competition, Food trucking in the Fall

Well,
We had our last food truck event of the fall last weekend and it was a blow out!
No, really, Our food truck had a tire blow out on the way home. I was so scared to leave the trailer out in the country side in the middle of NOWHERE, TX!

We made a 45 minute drive home to pick up the spare, then a 45minute drive back to change out the tire, then another 45 minute drive back to home base. Needless to say, we were beyond exhausted by the time all was said and done. So tired, that the hubs and I called it a night by 9pm! Seriously? 9pm? Yes, 9pm on a Saturday night.  You'd think we were senior citizens. Thankfully, we have a couple of weeks off to recover before our Christmas events begin in early December!

If you haven't had a chance, please find our food truck and give us a like on FACEBOOK at www.facebook.com/larositatacos

Thank you!!
