so i go into work today, at 845 am.

yes, i really did.

and look at the schedule.

and realize that it says 845 to Close, which means 845 PEE EM, not AY EM.

yes, yes, i showed up to work TWELVE hours early.

well, THAT'S just dumb. (dumb like a moose, dib, dumb like a moose!)
(and by 'dumb', i mean silly that they would schedule me for a 3 hour shift dumb, not that i mistook 845 to mean 'the morning'. in the two years i've been there, i've never seen anyone scheduled for a 2 hour shift.)

the vice president of the WORLD was there this morning, so they kept me until they left. they were mightily impressed, so the dreaded two hour visit lasted only 15 minutes. bueno.

and because they're already short a person again tonight, i'm now working 5 to close.

i so want a freaking day off.

and HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO ME! two years ago on this day, i started my first shift at officemax. two days from now would have been my two year anniversary at Michael's, had i stayed there.

thank freaking goodness, i didn't. i hear things are becoming ABOMINABLE there. ha ha. neener. i can still grin and wave as i walk past them 4 times a day, though (i have to walk past michaels coming two and from work, and going to and from lunch.) every time i think about getting a second job again, i remind myself as to how much my feet hurt, how i spent all of my extra money eating out (not wanting to bring 3 full meals a day with me on foot), and how much i don't miss riding the bus. no money was ever saved, and my free time can be spent on SO many better things, like... FRISBEE! not really. the only time i've touched a frisbee in the last decade was to pick it up from one spot and move it out of the way into another spot.

but seriously, folks. once the whole moving thing is over with, with the roommates, and things slow back down, i'm planning on taking inventory of my LIFE, and change what needs changing. i keep MEANING to go back to school, why haven't i? i keep MEANING to play my guitar and sing more, to create more music, why haven't i?

stupid life.

in the meantime, methinks i'll go take a nap.

i've shown up way late because of writing my schedule down, but TWELVE HOURS EARLY? this still makes me chuckle (in retrospect.)

Well with all the inventory and changes comming I'd appreciate it much if I could retian a spectator position if you don't mind :)

Sorry to hear about the early arrival, thats one of the reasons I couldn't do a changing schedule! I have nightmares of waking up at say oh... 3PM and remebering having to be in at 7:30AM!! Ooo, the thought of it just makes me nerveous!

that still happens to me on occasion for school. i sleep through my classes all the time, which needs to STOP, so i keep setting my alarm early for my days off or mornings i can sleep in, in order to help train myself to wake up naturally more early.

funny, too, to read this from almost a year ago, where i was stating that it's dumb that i haven't gone through the motions to go back to school.

aaah, yes.
