I FEEL LIKE HAMMERED SHIT





I got home last night after work (wow, that's weird to say)took a hot bath, started reading Duma Key and fell asleep with Annie sprawled across my legs..she was so glad to see me, she actually let me pick her up and hold her..Then Babs woke me up at 9:30am to tell me to look out the window...it had snowed over night, and she wanted me to see it before it melted...so I looked out the window...'yup, that's snow alright'...and went back to bed..Then Anessa called cause Inky was worried about me and wanted to make sure I was ok...She was shaking a mayonnaise jar full of cream making butter...I would have been a lot better if I could have slept uninterrupted till about 11am...I am so stiff and sore...I know I can stand up straight, but it seems much easier to just slouch and hobble around the apartment looking like a question mark..



I did good last night....I kept re-ringing shit up though..the eye on the scanner will scan the item twice if I don't move it fast enough...and I keep forgetting to lock the computer down when I would leave the register and after a few minutes if you don't lock it, you need a manager to get back in it..When I wasn't busy I restocked and fronted the pharmaceutical section..and when I finished that I started fronting and facing the aisles close to the registers...Saturday if we're not busy I will clean back behind the register area...It looks tacky.
I saw a bunch of people I haven't seen in a while and they were happy to see me gainfully employed...It was rainy, windy and icky all day so I sold a lot of poncho's and umbrellas..I kept pushing the spiderman poncho and the sponge-bob square pants poncho...Inky is the assistant manager and he was so thrilled that I caught on so fast and didn't have to be told what to do I thought he was going to cry..ha...He actually thanked me when I left to go home..Told him 'just doing my job'...he thought that was hysterical...as the 2 other girls that work there spend a lot of time on their cell phones and talking to their girlfriends, who will come in, in packs of 3-4 and hang around the register while they 'work'....T. the manager is a really nice guy and seems to find me highly amusing, but he's not much of a disciplinarian....he'll tell the girls not to have their friends come in, but when they disobey him and they come in anyhow...he won't say anything...I plan on nipping that little habit of theirs in the bud..Even 'Lil Sara'...I don't go back to work till tomorrow and don't work again until next weekend where I will work Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 2-8PM...that will probably kick my ass....Well, I'm going to go feed the birds..the feeders are out and they are on the porch eating it out of the bag...feed them...get my blanket, curl up on the couch with my Duma Key book and hopefully, take a little nippy nap...
Babs and Shady Lane have both threatened to kick my ass if I don't take it easy and not be gung ho on the job, but even at 64, I only know one speed...rudden rudden...skeech, (that's the sound I make when I corner)....fuckme till I get overtime..

Oh, I remember those tweens I had to work with at the salon. (Boy, how could I forget!) IF they ever decided to show up for work, they usually didn't do tend to the store. Once when I went on my lunch break, I came back and no one was at the register. The clerk was in the back with the stylist washing their hair. Boy, did she ever catch it (I was the store manager). I should have written her up, but I just let it go. Another time I caught her and the stylist taking magazines home with them -- which was fine, but NOT ON THE DAY THEY JUST ARRIVED IN THE SALON! I said "are you taking those magazines? Weren't they just get delivered today?" and she said, "No, they're old." I said, "Don't you lie to me!" and then the little b!tch called and whined to MY manager that I was "mean" to her and I got written up. From then on, I just let the little b!tches do whatever they want before up quitting a few months later. Oh, and right before the big store inventory! HA~

I want to come shop in your store...and buy a poncho. I think I want a poncho...No need for it here but I bet i would get a lot of attention if I wore it..and was naked underneath.

We were suppose to get snow here but we didn't, guess you got it all. I'm glad the new job is going so well.

Work it, sister!

I think I'd look hot in a Spiderman poncho! I could have used one today in the pouring ass rain we had!

I think I may have given you the crud via email. Take care of YOU!

If you worsen, you can call my doctor and beg for drugs over the phone. She's good for that sorta thing!

Snow! We have forgot what that looks like over here in the UK, unless you live in the far Northern parts that is...still time left yet for it to come.

My mother used to say 'It will snow soon, they have had some in America' Bless her.

Back then, when I was growing up, I guess snow was probably just a metaphor for McDonalds outlets...

Nit Wit said...

Yesterday it was supposed to rain here and instead we got 4 or 5 inches of snow. Then over night we were supposed to get snow and got freezing rain and at 5 AM hail with Thunder and lightning. Now it's sleet. We're supposed to get hammered this afternoon with up to 8 inches of snow and 20 to 30 MPH winds. They say it will be blizzard conditions.
Of course they haven't gotten the prediction right once this year so we will most likely have a heat wave and drought this afternoon.
Snow in West. Who would have thunk it.

fuck milk....

what a coincidence, i bought a little something yesterday and the prick bumped the price $50. but after some quality control testing, maybe he should have bumped it $75.
