    Man this top of the page is bullshit. I don't want to be in the limelight.

    Any light at all has a negative effect on my appearence.

    Well my boss apologized for changing my schedule without telling me and said I could probably have Wednesday off if I wanted (and I do!)

    so hopefully that'll work out

    Cheers to Mori and his day off!

    The only thing that irked me about his email back was saying I could have Wednesday off and "I have been very accommodating to your vacation requests in the past."

    I'm like yeah you have dude, that's not what I'm complaining about.

    That doesn't work for me. In my accent it's like "save that sass for after clarse." It just doesn't work.

    If we had a points system I'd have to mark you down on international unfriendliness. Sorry.

    Man, reading his email again, it's like he totally ignored what I said.

    I said "Hey, you scheduled me for Monday, what's the deal? I have no problem with working Monday as I have nothing going on, but I just wish you told me because I might've had something going on that day. I know times are tough and schedules need to be flexible, though."

    He replies with "Sorry for not telling you about the schedule change. Times are tough and the schedules need to be flexible. I apologize if this inconvenienced you."

    retail...blah. Customers are the devil. Some guy got pissed at me because I would give him 30 % off his whole freakin' purchase. I'm not risking my job so you can save 10 dollars.

    My bookstores changing it's return policy to no longer accept returns without receipt at the end of the month, and people are already bitching at me about it. It's like they think we have no right to have a policy.

    I's really thinking about finding a job that has nothing to do with the general public...

    i love people who think theyre entitled to a discount just cause its a display model

    we fucking built the bike yesterday you asshole and were waiving the assembly fee what the fuck is wrong with you

    the most we can offer them is 10% which even for the most expensive bike comes out to be only $15

    if you ask for a display discount before i offer to waive the assembly charge then i will call the cashier up front to make sure they charge assembly, which is $10

    After more than a year of living Hell, I'm finally leaving Circuit City and going back to Substitute Teaching
    Why would I stop working a semi-respectable job to work in a retail store?
    Well, when I was hired my job was 8-5, Mon-Fri, I was only in charge of keeping inventory accurate and I was left alone. That didn't last long, so fast forward to a job that is basically part-time, weekends and evenings, and involves getting yelled at by every person in the store because I'm just another warehouse grunt and I've had to wait for the new school year to start to get hired again.
    This has probably been the largest, longest mistake of my entire life.

    This is why my choice to have an imaginary degree works much better. I don't have to deal with that sort of thing.

    -So do I just send you guys my transcript after I'm done with those summer classes or what?
    -Oh, no, you just tell us ahead of time the college and the classes you'll be taking. We'll get the information we need.
    -Okay, great!

    *2 months later*

    -Okay, so I'm all done. Is there anything left to do?
    -Yeah, we just need you to tell them to send us your transcript.
    -But... I explicitly asked that. You said I wouldn't have to.
    -Haha, nuh uh. Man, I hope you didn't take too many units.
    -What do you mean? I needed 8 and I took 9.
    -Well, yeah... You take 9 of their units. We might say you took 12 which would mean you took more than you should have and you'll have to petition to graduate.
    -But I took 9.
    -We might go ahead and give you 12.

    So because you need 8 and they want to give you 12 you can't graduate? That's weird, and fucked up. I understand if you took units from another school or something and they went down. But up? And this makes you not graduate? What is your school, ITT Tech?

    University of California, San Diego.

    I broke half of my Shell's gas pumps last week.

    Final Invoice: 474 smackers, not to mention the money we didn't make for a week while both of our diesel pumps were down.

    The pump fixing guy was an old family friend from my hometown, but my boss found out he wasn't actually certified to fix our pumps and got him fired. Whoops.

    Man, trying to go to work without warming up my voice first was a huge mistake. The role I have rests comfortably at the very top of my range.

    My character dies several times in the show, and every time I come back to life my dialogue seems to become more flamboyant. By the end of the show I am pushing the female lead over to make out with the leading guy

    Which I'd do anyways. Leading guy is hooooooot
