at work they have a bunch of shifts that end around the same time, and the shift i usually get goes until 4:45pm, and then theres 3 that end at 5:00. but because of that, and how whiney people are, i never get out before 5:15 because everyone else just leaves at 5 and then im stuck making sure we're not short before all the later shifts start. I had never noticed how cranky my co-workers were until I started getting this shift regularly...but at least my managers notice and I get incentives and paid for the extra half hour lol

manager at work was ranting to me about how some customers ignore you, and how rude it is etc. then i agreed and told him that I had about 3 or 4 of those customers today, but he didn't hear me. He was texting. IGNORED. lol

my old boss/manager person is such a dick,
i tried to look at her facebook profile today, and it turns out i'm no longer her friend on there.
effin' bitch, whatever, the reason i even got hired there is because i bought so much.. but guess what.. that's not going to happen anymore.
i'll never even look in that store anymore, for all i care.

my dad told me that he has some stuff on order in there that he'll never go pick up.
& mind you i'm not being bitter because she let me go.. i understood the reasoning behind it.. but it could have been done in a better way.
so in the end.. i didn't lose, she did.

I start a new job on Monday.

Well I have a trial shift on Monday to see if it all works out.

I'm stoked because it's with the same company I left 3 months ago but it's at head office.

It's only temporary though, but still.

The downside is I have to be there at 8:30 in the morning and it's on the exact opposite side of Toronto from where I live. Which means leaving at like 6:30 in the morning. FML.

I hate that i need money so bad. I went to visit my mom yesterday (30 mins away) and when I got there, my cell rang and it was work, she wanted me to go in, so she could go to the beach...and because I need money, I had to go, so I saw my mom for a total of 15 mins!

Halloween couldn't come soon enough.
The store has been ridiculous the past few weeks, and its only getting worse.

I'm quitting my job. Six weeks of work, and I've been scheduled, what, eight hours in the whole time? not even close to being worth it.

This is a good rant, but I got my review today for passing probation :)

I got 22/24 :D Only missed 2 cause of attendance (was like a minute late a few times) and I don't usually clean the miscel at my till at the ends of my shifts.
So yay!

Aaaaand, HALLOWEEN IS OVER!!
