Woke up this morning to mentally prepare myself for the horrible day ahead.

All i felt is paaaaain.

Freaking ovaries. Could I be bleeding TOMORROW? Of course not. Murphy's Law would rather have me bleeding and cramping to Kingdom Come (and back!) during a day where IIII am the only one working. A manager and I until 12. A manager, a supervisor, and I until 2. A manager and two supervisors until i get off at four. (and how much you wanna bet I'll not be clocking out then?) Hrm. I certainly hope there's a lunch in there somewhere. Apparently....apparently, I have no idea as to how I was going to finish that sentence, as I typed "apparently" then ran around to get my breakfast and charge my phone.

Need coffee.

I was quite the cranky ass bitch last night at work, something that I rarely am. I seriously threw a tantrum because a guy who hardly spoke English wouldn't take his three cents in change, thusly making my register off. After yelling a demanding "PLEASE!" at the guy and slamming the three pennies down onto my register to only pick them up again and chuck them hard onto the furniture pad, I growled "they THINK they're doing you a FAVOR." as another customer walked up. I was immediately given permission to take my lunch immediately after that guy left.

I wasn't the only one that was freaking out for whatever reason, though. Mild mannered Yancey said that the majority of his customers pissed him off, which is extremely rare for him. I overheard one group of people making fun of his name, Yancey's "Customer Service Toned Laugh" responding loudly after. If you know me in real life and think of it, remind me, and I'll be happy to repeat it for you. Some people have a customer service voice, Yancey has a laugh.

Pardon me whilst I down my breakfast, chew a fistful of Ibuprofin, and head to work.

Ibuprofen and not Mitol?

Midol is just acetaminaphen with caffeine. ibuprofen is anti-inflammatory so i can understand her logic of chucking that down her throat, instead.

midol does nothing for me!

but if an advil is ingested whenst the cramps first start, they dont ever get ahold on me.

midol doesn't do anything for me, either. i don't think i've been lucky enough to find the magic pill to prevent my cramps.

methinks i should really go get my regions checked out, as i haven't had that done in a long time (like 4 years.)

Well lookee lookee...I forgot to add the ":P" smiley at the end of my sentence. My joke was supposed to be that women take Midol (which I misspelled...WTF?) as the joke "Pop a midol, will ya?" Aye yi yi, I need to stop posting right after I wake up, I forget important things.

Oh don't worry, I know all about the differences between NSAIDs and analgesics/antipyretics. Kinda comes with the whole med school thing. :P :)

Re: Ooops...
i didn't know you were in med school *shrug*

and i figured you were making the usual joke about Midol, but figured that, just in case, i'd clarify for anyone out there that might not have known.

Together, we can be a powerful force to educated the masses on the proper uses of over-the-counter medicine! :-D We could be a super-hero team.

midol also makes me feel really freaking stoned, too, for some reason. for the most part, i've had some luck with prescription strength ibuprofin, which sadly, i have no more of.

tell my ovaries to stop with the hurting, too, since they've already been playing hocky in hurr for two weeks, now. fucking stress.

full moon on monday, valentine's day on tuesday - any other questions? ;p

Jebus, are they really cutting hours that much? Insanity! I hope this message finds you alive and.. um.. conscious.
Aug. 7th, 2006 08:53 pm (UTC)
yup, and still are for the most part. we have not hired a single freaking person for back to school, although it's usually this time of year that the back to schoolers are actually leaving TO go back to school. if that makes sense.

Makes perfect sense. ^_^ I remember always being the last temp employee to leave for the start of fall. Seriously, I'm almost tempted to come in and ask for a job if it weren't for a) my cousin's wedding that I need to miraculously drop a couple of pounds for so I can fit into the bridesmaid's dress, and b) getting my wisdom teeth pulled, which I'm sure would actually help me drop those miracle pounds, but is unfortunately (and fortunately I guess) happening post-wedding...

In any case, stay alive and well.

so sorry you had a bad day yesterday... hang in the girl! i've spent a couple of weeks trying to get my pills refilled, so my next 'periodical' will be a hard one also. believe me, you have my total sympathy!

really! i hadn't heard that, i should so write that down. last time was completely unbearable, i was close to sobbing and i was in so much pain that i was literally pouring sweat for hours.

A customer service toned laugh, how funny. :)

I hope you feel beter soon and that today went ok.

i've noticed that i still get my customer service voice sometimes, and it's quiet and high pitched, which is unlike my regular alto voice (not that i'm a loud mouth, but still.) i noticed recently that i often go on autopilot, watching everything at once while i blurt out the same sentences that i say over and over and over.

"thanks, now go ahead and tap yes on the screen to confirm the total."
"no, you need to tap yes first, then the signature capture screen will show up."
"okay, go ahead and sign there, thanks."
"here's your receipt, have a great evening."
"hi, find everything okay?"
"would you like a bag for that?"
