finally off work - yippee!

but i'm going in at 8 a.m. tomorrow - boo!

but then i get the next day off - yippee!

but then i'll be working almost twelve hours on Christmas eve - sigh!

the other guy Don, that was up for taking over our store but lost it to Kirk, is training with us today and tomorrow. i almost feel for the guy "ha, you didn't get the job, but why don't you hang out with them anyway for the next couple of days to see what you're NOT going to get? kthx." we're top in all sorts of sales spots, as well as quite accomplished compared to other stores regarding store set up and price changes and stuff that was supposed to be done, PLUS we didn't go that far over in payroll, so district's loving us and getting to be our store manager instead of another store's is like a promotion for anyone else currently running other stores and being sent to a different store is like punishment as they haven't done anything they were supposed to yet and stuff.

i'm so loopy that i believe in runon sentences which i would love to believe that i use fairly rarely, though they can certainly be useful in certain circumstances and such.

i'm quite hungry and could certainly inhale a small moose but methinks i shall instead go to bed as i have to be up in six hoursish for a final round of the pre hollyday stuff and to officially kick off a week that will be more busy than the current one that i just finished because of all the overnights.

which reminds me - they scheduled me to work hours like 6 pm until 2 am... but then have everyone going home at 11 pm and no one else coming in until midnight. must speak with someone to see how this will work tomorrow.

ooh, and i forgot that i have tuesday off too, weee! that was like my little gift from the scheduling gods for working extra and for pulling a ten hour shift on Christmas eve.

i'm also happy to report that we close at 6 pm on new years DAY, yo. that rocks like noboday's bizness.

sorry that i haven't been reading anyone's journals much as of late. know that i do love yous, though.

thank you also for all the wonderful Christmas cards i've been getting from you - i am already working on hanging them on a wall to take a picture of to post for you.


ooh, and i also put in about 45 hours this week - overtime huzzah! and all of those hours but eight were put in during the last 2 or 3 days. i seem to have lost count.

but boy, are my dogs a barkin.

and i think i'll end up putting in about 50 hours next week, which is my last week of vacation before returning to school.

I wish you an EXTRA Merry Christmas!

And to think that back when I posted this, I was begging to hang out with the logistics crew - hence putting in all those extra hours and partial overnights.

Now, I AM the logistics crew! :D

So then, being the logistics crew means no more working xmas eve???

Mrrf, that was me, it seems as though one of my roommates logged me out whilst I was sleeping in order to dink on their journals.

Ha ha, I still find it funny that I can remember what day it is so much more when I'm working midnight to 8 am instead of 4 am to noon. It's silly, because it's one day when I walk in the store, another day when I clock in a couple of minutes later, yet I still can function better on that schedule.

Hang in there, and Merry Christmas! ^_^

And Happy Labor Day to YOU! ;)

I can't believe that it's almost that time again. Well, not almost Christmas, but almost autumn. Not that I'm complaining, as I like that season best!

That's mean, training that guy and then not giving him the job. How weird. O_O

Happy Holidays to you, and I hope you feel better soon.

Some year I'll feel better enough to sit on here and answer my LJ comments, myself. ^^; (guiltguilt)

Nine or so months later, I wonder how different our store would be, if we WOULD have received Don as the store manager. Not that Kirk has been awful, and I don't THINK that the fact that our sales are HALF what the rest of the district is doing is entirely his fault ;)

Never feel guilty about taking awhile to respond ;)

I've been passed up for promotions repeatedly and then required to train the person that got said promotion. The person who hired the person actually would require that I do the training too.

Completely inappropriate.

Egads, that's awful! I assume that this was at the job before Nautilus? I think of you every time we drive by there, usually at like 10pm or later. And we only drove by twice. But I still thought of you.
Aug. 21st, 2007 02:19 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that was at the phone company. So far at Nautilus I've just had to train the entire call center on how to use my software as users. I'm still the forecaster/admin of the software.
