Yeah? Well Fuck You Too

Today, I had a customer piss me off. In fact, he infuriated me to the point of tears.

Why do people have to be assholes?

December 25, 2004

Speechless.

I've just opened the present from my Boyfriend.

Oh. My. God.

I started crying, partly because I was so damn happy, and partly because I couldn't believe that he actually got it.

This camera was the one thing I wanted for Christmas. But I didn't mention it to anyone, and I mean anyone. Especially not my Boyfriend, because I didn't want him to spend that much money on me.

And yet somehow he knew.

Tis The Season

Sigh of Relief

So, it's done. The Christmas shopping season is finally over, and I managed to survive relatively unscathed. I want a t-shirt that says "I survived working at the mall during the holidays". Heh.

Unfortunately, with the end of the holidays also comes the end of my job. No, I wasn't a seasonal hire. Our store is being forced to close by the end of this month. Which really pisses me off, because I like my job and the people that I work for.

It's hard to get a 100% straight answer as to why the store is closing, but the abbreviated version is that we were on a temporary month-to-month lease, and now a bigger (more profitable store) wants/needs our space. So we get the boot. My manager is hopeful that we'll be back in the mall by February, but that's still a month that I'll be out of work. I have been offered a position at one of the other stores, but

I know I'll have a job once the store re-opens, but even now that's seeming more like a "if" instead of a "when". I guess I will just have to wait and see what happens, hopefully I'll be re-employed at the end of the month.

C'est la vie.

*Collapses*

I work at the mall. Mall hours are now 8am until 11pm. There's only one more week until Christmas. My last day off was tuesday, my next day off is Christmas.

And this is why you're not hearing from me.

A Bit Creepy

Today at work I was standing next to the counter, as I always do. It's a neutral spot from which I can see most of the store any keep an eye on my customers. As I was standing there, an older gentleman (65+) walks up to me and mumbles something. I couldn't understand him, so I asked "Did you have a question, sir?" in my best 'happy shop-girl' voice.

He looks at me and replies "I was wondering whether you worked here or if you were for sale, I was going to ask you how much you cost."

I laughed politely... Mostly because I had no idea whether to be flattered or insulted.

Miss Sunshine

I just want to send a big "Fuck You" to the universe. Seriously, I am sick of this shit.

The moment that my life begins to feel stable again, some bullshit higher power throws an enormous wrench into my gears. Then suddenly I'm off-balance again, teetering on the fine line between rational thought and complete panic.

More later, I suppose. When I'm not so sleep-deprived.

Effing Hell Version 2.0

Can someone please explain to me why the fuck FireFox decided to delete all of my bookmarks? I had to re-import them from IE, and I lost all the pages I had bookmarked since I started using FireFox. Which was alot, considering I spend way too much time on the internet.

The only possible reason I can see FireFox being retarded like this is because my laptop locked up last night, and I had to do a manual shutdown. Even that, however, is a stretch. I'm a bit peeved.

FireFox, why have you betrayed me so?

Just Odd, Mostly

Fortune cookie from dinner last night:

"Dream as if you'll live forever,
Live as if you'll die tomorrow."

Bugger.

I thought of something today that I wanted to write about. Then I took a nap, and now I'll be damned if I can remember what the hell I was going to say.

Maybe it will come back to me after the caffeine kicks in.

Effing Hell.

You know what's great? Realizing your clock accidentally got set ahead an hour, only after you've taken a shower and cannot go back to sleep because you have your hair in a towel.

I can already tell this day is going to be a winner.

Update 11:17pm - Sometimes a bad morning turns into a great day. Today was not like that. Did you hear that giant sucking sound? That was my day continuing its' downward spiral into crapville. I've had enough. Goodnight.

Everyone Wants A Piece Of Me

The Roommate in charge of household bills has just announced the tally of charges for the month, and it has left me feeling a bit grim.

Living with roommates is a catch-22. On one hand, your rent is amazingly cheap for the house you live in and everyone shares responsibilities around the home. On the other hand, you've got 4 people using one kitchen/bathroom/living room and some are not particularly tidy. Plus, 4 people also means 4 times the utility use, (usually more, seeing as 2 of the roommates are not overly concerned with power or water conservation) which sends the bills through the roof every month.

Sometimes I seriously consider whether the benefits of having roommates still outweigh the negative aspects. I'm starting to think the answer to that is an emphatic 'No'. But seeing as neither the Boyfriend or I are wealthy enough to pay for our own place, I'll just have to deal with it.

*sigh*
