That coffee body scrub I got in my ipsy bag? Simply amazing. It smells so good! And makes my skin feel so smooth. Too bad I only have maybe one more use out of it, such a shame.
I’m off today and tomorrow, same days as last week. I could get used to going back on this schedule – I just want something steady. I hate not knowing when my days off are. We lost a new cashier already, some kind of baby daddy drama and not enough time. Not sure entirely. We just lose people left and right anymore.
I’ve been all over the place this past week, I missed posting a journal entry on Wednesday even. It’s Friday and this is the first thing I’ve posted all week. Honestly, I’ve just been busier. It’s like, I broke up with Ray, and I’ve been hanging out with C a lot lately.
Where do I even begin with this one? It’s just going to be a compilation of various stories that have been involved at my current job. And a few from my old job, just because they’re worth sharing. Not even sure where to start, so let’s get it going with a short noteworthy mention from my first job:
“Handed out an order to someone with the number 300 today. They proceeded to say, “This is Sparta!!”
I went out last night. It was a friends’ birthday, and I haven’t seen him in awhile. My mom decided for us to do cleaning around 8pm, then got mad when I was leaving around 9, 9:30. I got halfway to the bar, and realized I left my cash on my dresser, so I had to rush back, grab my cash, and head back out again. And it was cold, and the sidewalks were slippy with ice. So by the time I got to the bar, it was pushing 10pm.
It’s been so. fricking. cold. I can’t stand it. But, it is slightly warmer today, at a whopping -3 degrees right now – with no windchill to make it colder. By the end of the day it’s supposed to get in the 20’s, and next week is supposed to be up in the 30’s, 40’s and even 50’s. Talk about a heatwave after this frigid cold. Better get my shorts ready. Just kidding, I’m still going to be cold. But I am stoked. Let’s keep the frigid temperatures away for the rest of winter, please. I’m sick of wearing so many layers just to walk to work.
Christmas shopping is so expensive. I think this is why I’m mostly stressed around the holidays. I never have enough money to get the good stuff. However, I did luck out a little this week, because I made almost $50 in tips – and I don’t have to be tipped. People are more generous around the holidays I guess. But it always makes me feel so good when someone leaves me a tip.
I’m cheating. Sort of. I’m writing this post a little in advance. Mostly because I have work tomorrow and I’ve been finding more motivation to write at night when I have work, versus trying to rush to get a post done within an hour, and then have to rush to work. Which has been what’s been happening the last few times, so here I am, writing this post at night the night before (I work until 8 tomorrow (today?) so I’m really not going to feel up to writing much).
A lot of things have been getting on my nerves lately – especially at work. Maybe I’m just at the place where I’m getting sick of my job. Or maybe I’m just over people. One thing or another, but there’s quite a list of pet peeves I have these days. Here are some of them:
1.) Answering the phone This is part of my job. I’ve accepted this. However, it annoys the fuck out of me. I swear, the phone doesn’t start ringing until I go to do something. And now, we have a “hip” phone where if I’m not up front, I can carry the phone around with me to the back of the store or downstairs or wherever. As if it’s not annoying enough.
