i luckily and surprisingly got to see the lunar eclipse in its entirety last night, God having magically put the moon exactly where the giant window over the doors in Office Max is, giving me a nice framed personal show.

too bad the idiots that kept parading through my line didn't realize that i had BETTER THINGS TO DO than to argue with them as to why a magic alarm clock that plays 4 songs from Grease costs $20. and yes, i DO need to see proof that you're with the company you're writing the check from. kthx.

and in case you were ever wondering, yes, i DO stick my tongue out at rude people as they're walking away from me. i'm just that mature.

i'm also ANGRAY! ANGRAY. anGREEEEE. i requested halloween, the 1st, and the 2nd off MONTHS ago. they goofed and scheduled me for election day. i said "uh-uh." they said "well. the schedule is out, so if you want that day off, YOU have to go around to all of your coworkers that are off that day and beg them to work for you. if you don't cover your own shift - although we goofed - you had BEST be here... ORELSE..." O_O there is only one person off that day that didn't previously request that day off, and she works in COPYmax. meaning has never worked as a regular associate, so to speak. grar. maybe i should bake her cookies. actually, scratch that. for anyone that has ever tasted my cooking/baking/parbroiling, that would only cause her to throw the remainder in my face and never speak to me again. maybe some skittles. i think she likes skittles.

busted down and broken
all in two
you never thought this could happen to you...

Woohoo, if that was me, I woulda been like "Well screw you guys, I asked for those days off and I'm fucking TAKING those days off, and if you DON'T like it, I can find employment elsewhere"

But that's just me. And I'd kind of be hoping, when I said it, that they were gonna just go along with it instead of call my bluff, and then I'd be collecting my last paycheck and wondering what the heck to do with my life after that. ;)

hee hee. quite tempting, if i would starve to death and DIE without a job, and drag my poor roommate with me!

i'm slightly playing the 'i had requested it MONTHS in advance, so i'm not even going to be in TOWWWN' card, although i'll most likely spend it two city blocks away from work, drinking beer, eating potato salad, and watching the election.

Work would be great...without the customers. I would so love to be like "I don't get paid enough to deal with your fucking ass, so quit wasting my time". But alas, that would be inappropriate.

hee hee, translation for that statement for me is "one moment, sir. *into headphones* I need a manager to Customer Service, please!"

The headphones at work can also be great because you can PRETEND you are being talked to and have something ... urgent.. to take care of somewhere else, if someone wants to take up all of your time.

I'll deal with people to a point, but when they start getting downright rude and evil when i have done nothing wrong, i don't get paid to deal with that crap, and the managers do.

imho.

I agree, that is what a manager is for. It's amazing how people start acting when someone with a tag on their shirt that says "manager" walks over.

my favorite is that two of our recent promotees to supervisorment are VERY young (both barely turned 21, but both look 18 or younger), so i will be talking to them about something completely work related and quite important, and if we ignore someone for a nanosecond, they freak out and demand to talk to the supervisor... who is there.

or i'll call for assistance with something, i.e. taking a return that i know is fraudulent, and the supervisor will come over and reiterate what i had just said... which of course results in the customer demanding to talk to the manager... which is them. i almost want to grin rudely and yell "HA!" when that happens. "I WANT TO SEE SOMEONE WHO'S IN CHARGE!" "ma'am, i AM in charge."

Hahahahaha... I didn't even know you COULD have a domain name that long.

Sorry to hear about your schedule. Any chance you can go to an early voting place, or get an absentee ballot?

yanno? i can't remember what on earth i ended up doing for the day. i mean, i remember that i didn't work, but i can't remember how i got away from it.

i'm sure in a few more ancient replies, i'll have it figured out :)
