SPN 4.22

Yeah, I know. Epic fail on keeping up with any commentaries. I can only plead stress, lack of time, and the inability to say what I want to if I have to think it out after the fact.

So apparently, some customer claimed I refused to change his order a few nights ago, stormed in the next day to demand my name from management, and called customer service to complain.

End result - unemployed, once again. Right after I went ahead and ordered the tickets for this, too.

Oddly enough, the last time I was fired? I was still saving up for The Gathering of the Fellowship in Toronto. It's like there's some conspiracy trying to keep me stuck in Kansas.

SPN 4.01

Okay y'all, I'm going to try typing this out as I watch. No promises on how well this'll work, mind you - last time I tried this was the '02-'03 season of 24, and that didn't go so well....

I got a haircut yesterday. Walked in, told the stylist to cut it as short as it'd go without becoming a buzzcut, and almost had a panic attack at my first look at the work in progress (I remember thinking 'all I need now is a lightning shaped scar'). Turned out good, though.

Granted, I have gone from just-past-shoulder length to the shortest it's been since I was a baby, but from everyone's reactions, you'd think it was the most important thing to have happened ever.

Good news - Transfer went through this week. Co-workers and managers who treat me like a person, not a braindead screwup. Also am allowed to wear my mp3 player during my shift. *grins*

(Slightly) bad news - Seems I'm working six days a week now, rather than the four a week at the previous location. Good for my bank account. Not so good for having much of a life outside th' job, though.

Ah, well.

I hate my workplace.

My managers have, so far:

-told me several things about my job that I have later been informed "No, that's not how you do that."
-assured me that the important paperwork for SSI I needed them to fill out by a certain date would be taken care of, when in fact, it wasn't.
-insisted that I was mad about something when I wasn't (though I get this from quite a few people, for some unknown reason).
-this week's schedule (which normally goes up Wed. morning/afternoon) was apparently posted sometime late Friday. After 2 in the afternoon, because that's when I went in find out what happened with the SSI paperwork. They still had last week's up, and silly me, I neglected to check the dates as well as the times. End result, I didn't work Friday night even though I was suppose to. (The only reason I was not called about this, they said, was because it wound up being a far slower night than normal.)
-and in general, made me feel like a useless fucking cunt who can't do a single goddamned thing right, no matter how hard I try.

I'm checking about transferring to the other store (smaller and a bit farther from home, but the people there are are easier to get along with), but I'd have to switch from full-time third shift to part-time second and third shifts. Provided the part-time is more than 20 hours a week and I can keep my insurance, I'm going to go for it.

...then again, too many more nights like these and I'll go for it regardless.
