glutton for punishment?

yay, i'm home from work! i know that you are blinking at your clocks as you read this, so i shall let you know.. IT'S TWO THIRTY! a.m....

i was scheduled off at 10 pm this evening, but agreed to stay later, as they had a humongous truck and half the crew called in, the other half had somewhat valid excuses (like having a baby), so i figured i'd help out. i am still quite stiff, but am at least a bit more aware of my surroundings this evening compared to last night.

scheduled for a small 5 hour shift tomorrow, from 1 to 6, though due to short-handedness, i told them i might stay a bit later, depending upon how i felt by the time we closed and the ad was set (as i AM the ad faerie.) i know that most things probably won't be going on until about 10 pm, so we'll see. i feel honored that the overnight supervisor went out of her way to ask me if i would like to hang around. granted, it may be desperation ;)

but gaw, do i love doing freight so much more than customer service. i'm so burned out on giving 1000% for customer service, so i apologize to anyone i was crabby to today. even the nicest person ever could have come up to me and said 'hi! do you happen to carry...' and i would want to respond with a shrieking "WHHHAAAT?!?! CAN'T YOU SEE I'M PUTTING STUFF AWAY?!?" i don't think i was outright rude, though i do feel that a lot of people were inadvertantly greeted with grimaces instead of my usual genuine grin.

anyhoo. one more day and then i get a day off. note to self: do not drink so much tomorrow night, so that you will actually be able to ENJOY sunday - it's the only day you get off before all the hectic-ness begins.

p.s. - the botch is in heat. must spend tax money on getting her nonny fixed. sheesh.

I really disliked it when Fuzzy butt was in heat and it started happening so often! It was like very other week seesh! Not only that but she would do stuff just to make me angry, like if I didn't want her on my desk or my monitor... thats where she would go!

Thankfully that is now over but yuck!

Ok, to bed with you!

the noise and stuff i can put up with, for the most part, though it gets quite annoying. what i can't stand is her SPRAYING everything that we leave on the floor. and dummy me, i keep meaning to get her fixed the instant she goes out of heat, but the second she stops howling and peeing on everything, i totally forget.

aaaand now she's in heat again.

at least she doesn't leave anything else. We had taken refugee cats when I was younger and not only did they want no human contact and hid in the basement. They'ed come out a nithg and do almost whatever they wanted. They would leave ummm... only something a female cat could. G R O S S!!!!!!

I would probably like frieght too.

Can you tall like the spca, tell them you are a working student, and see if they can recommend a cheaper vet or even help with the expenses?

ooh, thanks for the idea. i still sadly need to get her fixed. whenever she's out of heat, i totally space it because everything is fabulous, but the second she starts howling and peeing on things again.... heavy sigh.

like now! yay!

Hee. You said "nonny". I giggle like a little girl.

I don't know how you manage customer service at all. People are just really idiotic, makes you want to throw random stuff at their nogging sometimes.

I always liked freght so much more than the front end. It is nice to help people, but in the end, retail for me was better when I didn't have to deal with people. :p

i like a healthy mix, truly. it makes me happy that since i've been there longer than anyone else, as long as there's one other person working besides management, then i know that they'll be on the register and i'll be on the floor, doing my fabulous little self inflicted projects. and management totally supports me in it, weee!
