My domain expired and lots of my stuff expired along with it since I didn't bother to get it off of there, so as you can see, my blog is graphicless. Renovations are extremely needed, and I will get on that sometime in the near future.
I have come to a major life decision. Retail work is not for me. Now don't get me wrong, the customers of the store are (for the most part) friendly and somewhat entertaining, but the work SUUUUUUUCCCCKKKKS. The store that I work in (which shall remain nameless), takes itself much too seriously, is too lax in its efficiency.. which makes my job a thousand times more difficult and slow, and then I am yelled at because my work is inefficient and slow. I am written up for being just a few minutes late, but them keeping me for hours over my scheduled work time is expected to be appreciated and wanted on my part, with absolutely no gratitude from the store. The only thing I get out of it is yelled at for working over my scheduled hours - which wouldn't happen if the inner workings weren't so fucked up. As they say, shit rolls downhill, and I'm at the bottom of the hill.
I work with a know it all, pasty white bitch from hell. I can't tell you how many times people have expressed surprise that I am still working there, considering who I have to work with. Less than 2 weeks after I started I heard from two separate people that some of the people in the store were running a pool, with me as the topic. The bet was how long I would stay - again - considering who I am forced to work with. I had one guy come up to me a few weeks ago and express his surprise that I hadn't slit my wrists yet (considering who I work with). It is so very sad, yet somehow entertaining to me to watch how this absolutely despised person gets by on the job. My best strategy is to stay as far away from her as possible.
I don't think that is going to work forever, but I can sure as fuck try.
