yay for days off! stanieldaniel and i may be hanging out. manager roxana said she was bringing me a coffee table today, but hasn't mentioned it for days, so... *shrug*

as i was counting into my till yesterday, i said to the store manager to not even bother trying to call me into work today, as it's my only day off for who knows how long. he laughed and said they didn't have the payroll for it, anyway.

i wake up this morning to a message from a different manager asking me to come in and close. um, no.

manager rick calls later and leaves a message that they desperately need me to call them, as they're missing something very important (a little device attached to all of the registers to remove anti theft devices) and wanted to know if i saw it last night. i call and let them know that it was there after we closed last night. he informed me that it certainly wasn't there this morning. huh. well, if it doesn't turn up, we know it's one of 4 people that took it in the overnight crew, which i would never think of any of them.

he also tells me that manager don is in the hospital from chest pains. this didn't surprise me, as he was clutching his chest all night last night. i do so hope that he is okay, though. i'm kind of attached to each of my managers, you see. and officemax has such a small amount of employees (generally 15 at any given time, including the 4 managers), so we're a tightly knit crew. (or so i would like to believe. you wouldn't always think so to hear some of them talk about each other, but i don't have anything bad to say back to them about whomever they talk about. makes me wonder what they say about me when i'm not around. "that aubrey! gah! she thinks she's so freaking funny, why doesn't she freaking SHUT UP. teacher's pet.")

i have a loverly bruise above my right knee where i slammed a corner of a case of paper into my thigh. yum. bruises crack me up, as i don't bruise easily, and i constantly seem to have them ALL THE FREAK over since starting at officemax, generally on my calves and arms. MY MANAGER BEATS ME IF I DON'T SELL MAX ASSURANCES!!! *sobs*

i shall end this post before it becomes any more boring.

You're really lucky...I bruise very easily. I constantly have some bruise or other and people used to think I was always getting beaten or something. Mostly, all it takes is bumping into the coffee table, or stair rail, or car door....or whatever.

me TOO! And it's super annoying because I'm very fair, and it precludes me from wearing knee length skirts most of the time (unless I wear hose, which in LA right now would just look stupid).

Grr. Stupid bruises. If only I could stop running into things, too. It's rather embarassing.

Hehe....why is it that the people that bruise the easiest are also usually the most clumsy?

God's little joke, I suppose ;)

sometimes i almost wish that i did bruise easily, as i'm constantly HURTING myself and whining about it, but it always looks like i'm overreacting, as there's no evidence ;)

Re: This post is marked officially not boring.
awwww - it always shocks me when coworkers say something like.... my favorite coworker, yancey.. i have a higher regard for him than i do any person i think i've ever freaking met. he told me that he and the store manager were talking about me and that he highly recommended me to take the next possible supervisor's opening. it meant so much to me that he liked me best and loved my work ethic, etc., but i would never be a supervisor - i see how they're treated, for one, and they couldn't pay me enough! for another, i don't have a car, which is mui important to them, i don't have the hourly flexibility, and I DON'T WANT IT.

but still :)

I'm so glad that at my current job, I never get anyone calling me up and asking me to come in on my days off...I used to have a job like that and I spent sooo much time screening calls!

it's funny because my brother works for target now, and they call him in ALL THE TIME, seriously, like at least 3 or 4 times a week. what's hilarious is that they've only called him in, though, on days he's already working, for hours he's already there.

the sillies.

My schedule is fairly consistent but that definitely sounds like what a few co-workers go through. I'm lucky in the respect that my manager doesn't trip out over the service contracts. He'll get a little concerned if I drop below 15 a week but that's about it.

Are you sure that I can't tempt you over to the Dark Side? We have a store in Vancouver.

and now you have a store in vancouver just down the street from me, too! they've already taken a ton of our traffic, but that's aiight, i suppose, as long as our traffic doesn't drop so much that we have to CLOSE. we were getting around $15 - $17 thousand a day, and now we're lucky to hit $14K. when i first started working there, even during the slow season of october, we still hit about $20k a day. shrug. at least it helps me to get the time off that i want in order to focus on school!
