:: Tuesday ::
so my kind of boss b/c there's no boss for my section has finally figured out i'm frustrated, and is offering to move me to his side of the floor to rescue me from the anarchy. cool. but i don't know jack about shoes. but i didn't know jack about mens clothing when i started so we'll see, might be a good idea. why does it feel like i'd be "giving up" on my current section tho? maybe b/c i'm below plan. need to fix it first then i can jump, must go out of the top. but after i've fixed it i'm so jumping, my whole department is anarchy. seriously. people come and go with no reguard to the schedule, they say/do completely inappropraite things in front of customers, they don't clean up, etc etc ad infinitum. they are overgrown children. i'm not saying i don't ever goof around at work, of course i do, i'm human. i am saying that when i goof around i do so in apporopriate ways that customers won't notice as goofing off, and that don't effect my ablilty to noice said customers and take care of them. standing and talking in the middle of the department where you can see customers and stopping to help them when they do is one thing, hiding in the corner to talk is another. argh.:: Friday ::
so i haven't been blogging in awhile. sorry. not only have they changed the format of blogger (it looks more user friendly, actually, but it's different and since the only person who actually enjoys change is a wet baby - at least according to a stupid non motivation motivatinal poster i once read - i don't like it. anway...) but i've been playing final fantacy until my eyes bleed. seriously. just checked my play time and once i've logged another half hour i will have spent litterally a week of my life playing. scary. it's engrosing b/c it's online w other people, tho. like all the other characters running around are geeks like me lol. so when i get stuck there's people to ask. there's also weirdo guys who hit on me but i just tell them my guy is a theif in bastok (which he is lol, grift) and when he's done laughing at leering idiot boy my linkshell will also chime in (go darkstars! lol). so if any of you out there play and are on the fairy server i'm rrynn. all the good spellings of rin were taken allready :).:: Tuesday ::
i got abboud. which i've been mispelling all this time. but i misspell everything...anway.....i got abboud. i'll be on commission in 3 weeks. go me. maybe i'll stop being the incredible broke girl.......:: Thursday ::
still up in the air at work.:: Monday ::
so the aboud guy left. now i just need to interview with my exbosses boss when he gets back into town (family stuff). and so i've got it, i think, unless they want to move me up to ladies instead (which might not be a bad thing. hm.....anway.....):: Friday ::
so i was sposed to get the joseph aboud position. except the person who had already given notice changed his frocking mind and kept the job. so i'm still where i was except i'm bossless. whatever. it makes it less anoying to be at work but it doesn't help my paychecks anway. argh. time to reprint the old resumes. damnit.:: Monday ::
so my boss is leaving the bloomingdales that i work at, to work at a new store we're opening in soho. wow. so i'm not tossing my hat into the ring for her job, b/c i don't think i want to fire 90% of my coworkers, which is what i would have to do b/c a)they don't make their sales quotas b)they don't open credit accounts c)they don't fold unless hollared at and d)they don't give a shit. but somehow i don't think that starting a job where i'd immediately have to fire most of my staff sounds like a good thing for me at the moment, and anyway i'm just not fond of management. i'd rather sell. i just need to be paid more for it........which i will be shortly....because the joseph aboud guy is leaving and i'm getting his job. which means i'll be really on commission and i'll be able to set my draw (hourly) so i'll set it at 11 or so an hour. 12 would be nice but it would send me into deffisit over the summer and i'd rather not operate in the red, that way i'll make more money in winter when i'm making real commision bonusus instead of just haveing to pay back bloomies my defficit. that's the plan, anway, if i don't get that i'll go back to really job hunting. wish me luck!
so i'm not a poet, haven't written a poem since my late teens, but i do have some (read about 3) poems that i'm still happy with. there are a few others that don't make me cringe, and the rest i'll keep for nostalgia but bury very deeply. one of the few i still like is a sort of megamantra of mine against the shallow urge to fit into the rigid standards of beauty in our society, a sort of reminder to myself that i'm fine as is. for some reason it's been stuck in my head for a few days now, so i figured i'd share.:: Saturday ::
waldenbooks 1014 is closed. i closed it today for the last time. the keyholder didn't show up so i got a nostalgic chance to lock up. it's sad and scary at the same time. my saftey net job is gone. goodnight.:: Friday ::
went on a book binge today in anticipation of the loss of my discount at waldenbooks. spent more than i maybe should of, except knowing me i'd buy all the books anway so buying them while i still have a discount was probably a good idea. saw marvin on the bus today going into white plains. haven't seen him in positively forever, so it was cool, even if he is way more financially successful than i am at the moment which is kind of depressing. oh well. phil and i will get lunch with him on sunday and let him buy *grin*. tomorrow is offically the last day that store 1014 is open, so phil and i are both working. might as well get the hrs while they're avalable, ya know? it is depressing, tho......this week has pretty much been baby sit the money and ring up the customers week. no real work left. it's been giving us all screw loose moments, danny set off the fire extinguisher in the back office (then did his oompa-loompa best to clean it up). tavia told people we were closeing b/c they caught on to the fact we were running a sweat shop in the back room. cyn sat on the counter playing her gameboy. phil and miriam velcrowed a chair to the wall. i stamped the back of dru's neck with the waldenbooks store 1014 stamp. stuff like that. we'll see how nuts tomorrow gets.
