Always Ask Questions To Get Your Answers………………… * My Story* Crees Blog Entry

police car
Mon March 3, 2014 .. I called the Police Recovery Station to find out if my van was recovered, when I was told by the Officer that she didn’t see it in the computer she told me to go back to the station where I filed it at, and to take my report with me to find out what happened.
 
 
I was heated when I was told to go back to the station. First of all, when I went the first time the Officers were terrible. If the Leaders of the city are like this… imagine the citizens. I have never in my life seen a bunch of NON MOTIVATED people in my life.
 
 
I got to the police station and this older, “get with you” kinda thick older black man was at the medal detector booth.. looking at his phone texting somebody.. NEVER LOOKED UP AT ME.. hollering real loud… MAY I HELP YOU.. MAY I HELP YOU?.. SO, I said yesss, I came down here last Tuesday and filled out a report for my Van being missing.. I did it the same day it was stolen, received THIS paper and was told to call to check up on the van. I said well I called this morning, and the lady on the phone told me that there is no report under these numbers I was given. She told me that I would have to go back to where I got the report and talk to them. He said well let me see the paper. I gave it to him, and he said okay let me go to the computer to check it.
 
 
He checked it and said in a real LOUD mean voice……. “I DONT SEE WHY SHE TOLD YOU THAT, CAUSE IM LOOKING AT IT RIGHT NOW”.. WHO DID YOU TALK TO MAAM???????? I looked at him, because he was screaming. I said I TALK TO AN OFFICER….. THE PEOPLE WHO ANSWER THE PHONE!!!!!!!!!! He said what’s her name. I SAID I DONT KNOW THE OFFICER NAME WHO ANSWERED THE PHONE. Then as he was looking at it, the way he was staring at the screen, you can tell he was looking at a mistake or something. Being the reason why the OFFICER I spoke with on the phone couldn’t see it in the system. HE KNEW IT.. BUT IT KILLED HIM TO ADMIT that *SUSAN FALLONI* ( The Police Officer who took my report) DIDNT finish it.
 
 
As we’re talking, there is this white officer sitting in the further back seat, and to the window…… a black officer kinda young came in with a bag of Burger King or some resturant food. She saw my face while talking to him and was TRYING SO HARD TO BE MY FRIEND, trying to make eye contact with me, because she saw my facial expression, but you can tell that later on she could turn on me, cause of the way me and her PARTNER were talking to each other.
 
 
So, he’s explaining to me that Susan’s SUPERVISER would be in later, and that I could talk to her/him because Susan and the supervisor are the only person who can go in and “touch” the report. OKAY I WAS COOL WITH THAT.. He EVEN SAID WE COULD DO IT OVER THE PHONE. THIS Negro GOT MADDDDDDDDDDDDDDD WHEN I SAID THIS… “SO let me ask you this…….is this NORMAL, for a person to come into the police station to FILE A REPORT OF A MISSING VEHCILE, and then have to come back down here because ANOTHER OFFICER OVER THE PHONE CANT FIND IT IN THE SYSTEM? He said maam LISTEN….. IM not authorize to go in and do anything to her report. I SAID OKAY YOU SAID THAT.. I GOT THAT.. IM ASKING YOU… IS THIS NORMAL FOR A PERSON TO HAVE TO COME BACK IN THE STATION TO TALK TO THE SUPERVISORS ABOUT THEIR REPORT??? So now the black lady is staring at ME.. LIKE “NO SHE AINT”… THE WHITE LADY LOOKING TOO… SO… I TOLD THE OFFICER SIR……… I’m DONE TALKING TO YOU! DONE!!! DONE!!! This NEGRO got up and went back to the medal detector desk and sat his a@@ down. He got on the phone…. and continued texting SMH He was glad to be able to go back to what he was doing before I walked in.
 
 
So since the black lady was staring wanting to join in on the conversation SO BADLY, I TURNED TO HER and asked….why couldn’t I just called the number they told me to call to check on my van, LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE instead of coming back down here because its not in the system? She was looking at me like THAT AINT MY REPORT!!! I GAVE HER THIS LOOK.. LIKE … THEN WHY THE “FORK” ARE YOU STARING DOWN MY THROAT WHEN YOU DONT/CANT ANSWER MY QUESTION??????????.. If you gon stare at us, with a fry hanging half way out of your mouth… THEN IMMA ASK YOU QUESTIONS TOO.!!! She grabbed her food and drink and took her a@@ to the back. SO QUICK LOL LOL LOL. I WAS DONE WITH HER.. NEVER SEEN HER AGAIN.
 
 
The white lady was the only one left in the room, BEFORE she ADMITTED THAT SUSAN FALLONI didn’t finish the report… SHE KEPT SAYING TO ME.. OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER… PEOPLE MAKE MISTAKES, EVERYBODY MAKES MISTAKES… THEN she asked.. don’t you make mistakes on your job? WHICH then I knew I was getting closer to a confession that she knew Susan FALLONI* DIDNT FINISH MY WORK. THEN SHE finally admitted like I WANTED the clown man officer TO DO. She sat there and admitted what I wanted HIM to admit. She was very nice about it, she explained it was a mistake. I was cool with that. All I wanted was for HIM to admit it. And that was the REASON why the OFFICER THIS MORNING COULDNT SEE IT IN HER SYSTEM !!!!!
 
 
With everything that I’m going through right now. I don’t have any EXTRA time to deal with foolishness and non motivated people. I’m on the move and when I need to ask questions concerning MY life…. I need them answered. And I want you all who is reading this. Ask QUESTIONS. Never be so geeked on people positions that you’re intimated about what they will or wont do to/for you. I didn’t care that they were officers. So what they didn’t want to answer my DIRECT IN YOUR FACE EYE TO EYE QUESTIONS, for fear of revealing the TRUTH and getting their fellow officer in trouble for not completing my paper work. I cleared that whole front end out, and I didn’t curse, raise my voice, or get physical. All I did was ask questions to get the answers to MY ISSUE.
 
 
Refuse to just “go home” without your questions being answered. These people know the answers to what you need to know. Always check your tone of voice, attitude, your facial expression, and never curse when taking care of your business. Be a good listener, and AVOID doing business over the phone as much as possible when it comes to something serious. People will tell you just enough over the phone without telling you everything, just to get to the next call. Speak with people who can help you. Never ever, speak to people who are the first to say “May I help you”? Then after you’ve explained for 10 minutes your story, they say… well I cant help you, you need to talk with “such and such”.
 
 
Always approach serious situations like this…. Hello, Yes!!!!! Who can I speak with concerning a incomplete Police Report on my Vehicle that was filed by Officer Susan Falloni? Give direct eye to eye contact. Never ever allow someone to get into a “who did you talk to, what was their name, BACK AND FORTH MATCH with you. That’s time consuming and it doesn’t matter because “THEY” didn’t take care of it when you did speak to them. Be clear, and only ask questions that will get you results. NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER be intimated by ANYONE. This is why people are always asking me to teach them how to get answers. Judgement Day is coming for everybody, never be scared to ask questions about YOUR BUSINESS… to people who are “DOWN HERE ON EARTH” just like you. Look them in the eye, and make sure that you get your business taken care of. Do follow ups. Use words to make them remember you. For example: Hello, My name is LaCrease Walker and I came into The Police Station on THIS PAST MONDAY MARCH 3, just before noon and spoke with YOU about YOUR Officer Susan Falloni WHO DIDNT COMPLETE MY STOLEN VEHICLE POLICE REPORT THAT WAS FILED BY ME. Don’t let them interrupt you when you are saying that sentence straight through. When you don’t say “straight” to the point STATEMENTS like that, they LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, to interrupt you to ask,, when did you call, who did you talk to, what time of day was it, what number did they give you to call? If you allow them to do this to you, it will throw you off your whole call. It will make room for you to forget your questions, and to second guess why you’re even calling. Write down your questions if you have to before you call.  Know what you’re talking about, do research on your business. Speak clearly. And ALWAYS.. ALWAYS…. SPEAK WITH AUTHORITY!!!

Family Business/Janet & Paris….Cree’s Blog

Hey, 

Today, I want to talk about Family Business. 

I was watching the video tape of Janet and Paris. I read a few Tweets that Paris tweeted, and I wanted to somehow DELETE her account. She obviously doesn’t know how serious it is. 

I’m sitting here still tripping on the fact that this “lil gal” snatched away from Janet. Some people are saying that Janet smacked her, but I didn’t see it and if she did SO WHAT!!! I have a serious PROBLEM with this little gurl going on Twitter sharing their FAMILY BUSINESS with the MEDIA. This family has always been private, and its not fair that Paris…. *this generation of kids*, come along and make what’s PRIVATE…..PUBLIC. Which makes the family…brothers and sisters how to somehow clear this up… when in the past if something comes up, they can just keep it in the family and in the end it works itself out. 

This family is very FAMOUS, people LOVE to say….. “they have issues too”… YEAH OF COURSE THEY DO…….but at the same time they love to MAGNIFY it. They have to be very careful of what Paris and any other cousin, or young sibling put out there to the media. There are PEOPLE WAITING TO DISSECT what’s going on in this family, and Paris have no idea how serious this is. Its crazy for her or anybody * especially the younger generation* to come along and tear down the family name that has been in GOOD STANDING for many years. It tears me apart to see that Paris has easy access to the MEDIA that clearly has NO LOVE, to her or her family. All they want is the gossip, THE STORY….THE DRAMA. And what she clearly doesn’t realize is that no matter what she says AND LATER DELETES…….SOMEONE ALREADY has it saved in their files. I hope she learns a lesson real soon on FAMILY BUSINESS. 

I am very good when it comes to children. I raised a very, very successful 25 year old daughter as a single parent. I’ve worked with them many years tutoring, by having my own Youth group Raisingurls to Women, and working in a elementary school for 7 years. If I was a family member and was in position to speak with Paris, this is what I would say….. 

STANDING directly in front of her GIVING HER DIRECT EYE CONTACT: I would say…… 

Here’s the deal Paris… in this FAMILY *pointing to the ground*, we are very PRIVATE. We don’t get on FB, Twitter, BLOGS, and we don’t discuss or ANSWER QUESTIONS to the MEDIA at all about what goes on IN THIS FAMILY. I understand that people are going to ALWAYS ask you questions, AND THATS GOING TO HAPPEN FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE…..but WE don’t do THAT HERE. We are a family that’s PRIVATE…. and we handle our family business amongst our selves. 

At this point, she’s going to NOT REALLY gasp how serious this is, because she really doesn’t know the effect her dad and family has had on many people all over the world. I would say to her……I know there are a lot of things you don’t understand……*and that’s fine* but you have to understand that the MEDIA has NO LOVE for anyone of us during this time of all our lives. I would tell her, you have to be careful of EVERYONE…. THIS IS YOUR LIFE NOW ….and especially while you are growing older. I would tell her this FAMILY has a lot of EXPERIENCE on the MEDIA and how they report things, how they twist things, and how they SEE THINGS. AND LASTLY….. I would say to her, if you ever in your life as long as you LIVE snatch away from ME……its GON BE ON …..AND POPPIN. Do you understand ME? Then I would ask if she had any questions…. and whether she likes it or NOT… I WOULD MAKE SURE she gives me *we give each other* a HUG AND A KISS. 

I know people, and I study people…..guess it comes from my gift from God to UNDERSTAND OUR YOUTH probably more than MANY adults. I say this….. if they don’t stop this little gurl now, while she is at the age where she can learn and gasp just how serious THIS IS…..She can be the one who grows up write a “TELL ALL BOOK” and cause so much damage to this family name. She knows a lot and if she ever get a hold or even understand JUST HOW MUCH POWER SHE HAS…. she can either build it up, or tear it down. Somebody has to step in and talk to this gurl. She is only feeling normal in emotions…..but they need to show her how to control them and not to take to FB, Twitter or any Media outlet, because people are being PAID to get the goods on this family and others. 

I hope this was/is a lesson for us all. Especially ME. 

Be Blessed

A lesson in BUSINESS to be learned….Cree’s Blog

I’ll be 44 this year 9/3, and I truly Thank God
for allowing me to live this life.  I know when I am truly blessed and I LOVE
telling God just how much I appreciate it.
I must admit I haven’t always been straight up
with myself. I remember when I was about 14 years old reading the Bible. I use
to read the book of Proverbs EVERYDAY and after doing so, I would ask God ,
please Lord dose me with Wisdom. Give me wisdom when I get older, I said that I
wanted to know things, know the truth. Never really knowing that all I had to do
was ask. Here I am 44 years old, and I like to “play dumb” when I don’t even
have too. God has given me WISDOM, all that I can handle  in my life, and still
I play dumb to things, when I know the truth. Today, is the day I stop that.
That’s it, enough is enough.
One thing I notice about myself is I have this NO
NONSENSE cut throat approach, that causes me to cut back sometimes on HOW I tell
the truth. I can be very raw, NO CURSE WORDS, but to the point about it. And
this is why I tell PEOPLE all the time, STOP RUNNING UP BEHIND YOUR MANAGERS
trying to be “friends”.
Because when you really need to BE HEARD you need
for them to not be able to go into their minds and find a “soft spot” about YOU,
when you are talking business. They will sometimes take that and use it against
you. Let me explain.
Last week it was crowded at work, off the chain.
As I was ringing up this lady, one of her bottles of cleaning solutions fell out
of my hand and the top to it broke. She wasn’t upset at all, but I did want
someone to bring her another one.  Since the incident happen where someone in
another city got on the PA system of the stores and ordered all Blacks to leave
, they ordered that all stores take the phones off the registers, making
communication hard for cashiers and management, also the customers who are
paging for their parties. But mangers have walkies with head seats. As one of
the black managers was walking pass my register and my immediate one wasn’t
around, I asked him can he please PAGE someone ( from that department-paper good
and chemicals) to come and get her another one. He walks by real fast, like he’s
busy and don’t look at him, you know how they do when they DONT want you to  BUG
them. So, the faster he was walking, the more it made me want to get his
attention. He says…. NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, when I asked him to page
someone to help this lady. OMG my face showed anger all through it. I was in
shock, so was the lady and the FOLKS STANDING IN MY LONG, LONG, LONG LINE. He
walks away never saying a word, never saying if he was going to do it, never
saying someone is on the way. Then about 3 minutes here comes the guy who works
that department. He gets the new bottle and that was fine. The lady asked me his
name and told me that she was going to call corporate on him.
When it was time for me to punch out for the day,
guess who I run into? Yep, the manager. I went up to him with my serious and
curious face, and said….. why did you tell me NO, NO, NO, NO, that you would
walkie someone to help this lady. He says, I was ONLY PLAYING WITH YOU. He said
I DID IT, DIDNT I? I looked at him, and said, Okay, you were playing with ME,
but this was in front of customers, and I wasn’t asking you to get me anything,
this was for HER!!!! He says I was busy, and you shouldn’t be asking me to do
anything, we have CMS’s for that? I said, so you mean to tell me that you are an
ASSISTANT MANAGER and if MY CUSTOMER need assistance I’m NOT suppose to approach
you? He cleared that up so fast. But you know what? He said it, and I know for a
FACT, they don’t like for a associate to go to them first, we are suppose to go
to our immediate manager. And I get that!!! I know this, but when you are NOT
asked to “go and get something”, you are only ASKED to WALKIE help to my
register, and you don’t want to do that…. YOU DONT NEED TO WORK THERE.
PERIOD.
SO, after a while he was really believing with
all his heart that he was NOT wrong in saying to me in from of the customer  “NO
NO NO NO” as he was walking by. I stopped in the middle of my rant, and said …
Let me ask you this? Do you feel that you were wrong in saying “No, No, No, No”?
He said No, I said okay well, this conversation is over, Because if you feel
that you were NOT WRONG, then we will be here all day. Just then a associate
said  TO HIM…….OMGGG, IF YOU’RE having a debate with LaCrease, you gotta be
wrong, she doesn’t get into it with ANYONE. He looked at us both and walked
away. I punched out and left.
Now, this is how I am. I never really deal with
managers unless I have to……or they come to me. I’m a business person, and I
don’t like to confuse the two. This particular manager can look at me and tell
that I’m friendly YES, but when I’m around and he’s playing or joking with
others, I don’t give it too much conversation because for one they aren’t
talking to me, and for 2 I don’t like to mix business that way. Because they
always take it to far, and so does associates. So, then when I need to let them
know that I MEAN BUSINESS, they can’t go into their files in their minds and NOT
take me seriously. As a matter of fact, I never had to deal or work with him
because he does not work in my area, so I don’t know him as others do.

 

 

Anyway…..   that happened last Saturday July
9……. yesterday July 11, I was working by his station and he kept looking at
me. LOL He wanted me to make eye contact with HIM SO BAD!!!!!!!! LOL  I never
once looked up at him, or even his way.  He kept walking past MY
REGISTER looking at me, I could see him on the corner of my eyes,  I wouldn’t
give him a chance to smile in my face. I’ve got an ignore button
built INSIDE ME  that IS NO JOKE!!! I hate being this way, but I’m glad I can be
because I need to. To let him know that I mean business. Hell, I don’t need him
to give me a ride home, pay a bill, or buy me lunch, anything I ask of him, will
be BECAUSE OF THE NEED OF THE CUSTOMER!!! NOT LACREASE WALKER!!! So LOL LOL LOL
I guess after a while he did everything in his power to get my attention, or for
me to look up at him, or to speak to me ( guess he was afraid to speak
FIRST…especially with no direct eye contact LOL). Guess what he finally says?
LOL “There’s a penny by your feet”. It KILLED me to respond by picking it up,
but I’m not a ignorant person, I did hear him, he is my manager, BUT….. I
NEVER looked at him, I stepped back and picked up the penny. I guess he said to
himself, yeah she is conscience of my presence, she’s just not speaking or
talking to me. DAYUM RIGHT!! Imma teach him, that you don’t play like that in
front of a customer, when I come to you, its for the customers NOT FOR ME!!! I
should have told him when we had that debate…… you know what? Lets take this
same conversation to OUR STORE MANAGER…… and see what he says about it!!!!!!
HE’s lucky I was to HOTT, to think that far.
I say that to say….. STOP playing with your
managers, and trying to be their friends, and trying to be in their circle, and
to go out with them and be in their mix. Because when you mean business, they
will laugh in your face ( if they don’t respect your opinion.) Learn to separate
business from friends. Besides you should already have friends before you start
this job.
