My ass SWORE I was not going back into retail but unfortunately, with the minimal jobs available now, all the office assistant jobs are full-time or don't work with my hours and the childcare jobs require certification.


Black Friday was fucking hell. I worked 8 hours and the soles of my feet hurt. I am realizing again how much I hate people and the stupid questions they ask, their carelessness about dropping shit that they REALLY JUST saw me pick up, unruly, undisciplined kids. On top of that I work in a little girls store that some men apparently think is "gay" to walk into so only girls and women walk in leaving me without eye-candy to gawk at.

I drank someone's redbull out of the fridge yesterday after I woke up @ 9:12am because my fucked up blackberry's alarm didn't ring. I don't know if it was my redbull or not (and yall know I do not give one fuck if it wasn't) but I needed it. I flew in and out of the shower, and was swerving in and out of lanes trying to get to work on time @10 because the last thing I need is for "the man" to take me down and leave my ass employed a month before xmas.

Some dude from Haagen Dazs asked for my number. Normally I don't give my number, I'll take the guy's, but I wanted to see if he would be bold enough to take his phone out with his manager right there. Then nigga told me not to make fun of his phone...*rolls eyes*. I just laughed. He pulled out this shit (or something like it):

..which just pissed me off for the remainder of our conversation. I like to think I'm not THATTT superficial but Cricket (the MetroPCS of NC) is not going to cut it. Not now, not never!

Today our DM came in and I just hate having to look fake busy at all times.

I pierced my managers ear today because some little girl was crying about getting her ear pierced and my manager asked her if I pierced her ear would she get her ears pierced and she said yes. (Mind you, I have never pierced an ear in my life.) It was cute and all but my manager was clearly doing the most for that earring sale.

Then I left an hour early because my back hurt. I felt kinda bad though because the lady who has the same position as me got me by like 10-20 years and she walks with a limp, she was there before me and was supposed to leave the same time as me but when my manager asked me if I wanted to go I was fucking GHOST! Sry, Lori. *shrug*

I don't hate Christmas music but if I hear that Ashanti - Hey Santa song one more time I'm going to fucking off myself.

I came to work high one morning this week too and I don't think I'll be doing that again. Aside from the obvious reasons why I shouldn't, I was just dazed and confused for a good hour.

Anyways, I really shouldn't be complaining because some people don't have a job. But I bet if they did they'd be complaining about it too.

In conclusion, the first oz of weed I buy with my paycheck will be rewarding! :) YIPPEE!!!
