Approximately 7 shifts left at my job, so excited to be done.

I'm loving my new job, it's so laid back and relaxed and the boss is always saying how happy she is with me and how good i'm doing, and i'm so not used to it.
and i'll be getting 3 day weekends every 3 weeks! WOW. gonna be nice.

I LOVE MY JOB.
However, when someone comes in and complains that the paintbrush they bought is doing a crap job, it is very hard not to say I told you so when they refuse to buy the one YOU TELL THEM IS BETTER and is only like a dollar more. Come on lady.

I still work at Superstore, which sucks but at least it's money.
Jake (my boyfriend) has a Mon-Fri job but I think that he's going to apply at the Superstore now. It'll be neat working with him (if he gets the job)

Not ranting but just saying...I can't believe I actually have a three day weekend coming up.
I haven't had a weekend off in the summer in 8 years!!!!
YAY ME!

:P

I have NOTHING to rant about with my new job. I love it. I'm sure at some point, I will have something to rant about but right now I'm just enjoying being appreciated and learning my new job. :)

Glad you enjoy your new job, Jenna!

I'm currently at work on posting on the forum, so I guess I can't really complain about my job too much :P

I work in a "gift shop" type store, in a mall.
Has a lot of imported items, and of course, lots of body jewellery.

My rant is about people who come in, mostly teeny boppers, and ask for a new lip ring, or an eyebrow ring or whatever the case may be.
And they don't know their size!
Especially people with spacers/plugs/etc, they come into my store, whip out their custy earring, and ask me to measure it.
I have spacers myself and know how much they can STINK. And I'm sure most of you have them too, or have had them.
They are disgusting with the wrong material, and if you've left them too long.
I clean and change mine everyday, and I even still get a faint odour.
So you can only imagine the people I get in who have had the same earrings in for 2-3 months without cleaning them. BLEH!
I BARF IN MY MOUTH!
So disgusting.
Especially if you get a whiff of it, I always hold my breath.
But omg so gross.
you should know what size of everything that you have in your body.
So they usually guess, and then blame me and yell at me when it's the wrong size.

I hate my job, first time in customer service as I usually work in Child care.
I'm working in a hotel - but the pub part- and my managers don't know how to manage shit!
I get used and abused like crazy there.

But I'm happy at the moment cuz I haven't worked in about a month- 2 holidays and off due to extreme pregnancy sickness.
Back to work next week :( Then only 5 more months until I'm off for 6 months :)
