I still have treats to dispense, but don't worry, I haven't forgotten!

I did forget to mention the results of the COOOOOORN MAAAAAZE which were that I went into a strange "my dad" mode and was like "I WILL LEAD THE WAY" and for the most part I did, with some assistance from [livejournal.com profile] infinityduck and [livejournal.com profile] latenightarting. I felt terribly accomplished when we made it out.

But I kind of have to talk about work for a moment, and for once it's sort of hilarious.



So Sunday morning I woke up to a call from Richard, because the spare set of keys to get into the safe room were missing. Apparently Richard had called Peter, gotten no answer, then called our boss, whose brilliant idea was not to come give him her keys to open her own goddamn store, but to call *me* so *I* could bring him the keys.

Really? Really?

So in light of how incredibly bitchy that was, I took five days off next week, and she'll have to cover half of them. LEX TALIONIS, BITCH.

I did not mention this to her, largely because of our previous conversation where she essentially said "I don't want to cover for you and open my own store." So I let Peter do it. And apparently Peter did it by saying, "So next week you're opening Friday to Sunday," and when she apparently stood up in shock, amended it to "Well, Chris and Richard can probably get Saturday and Sunday, so you'll just be working Wednesday through Friday."

At which point she promptly called up a girl I really like and hired her for the opening shift on the spot. I probably don't have to mention that until that point, she'd been dragging her feet hardcore about hiring anyone even though we desperately need it.

So you get my boss to actually do her job by suggesting she might have to do her job. Interesting.

Regardless, it was well played, Peter. Well fucking played.


And in conclusion, I have a "staycation" next week and I will get shit done. Hopefully.

Now here is a meme from [livejournal.com profile] thistlerose:



1. Amber
2. May/Maypirate
3. Nuzz
4. Burrz
5. Buttz (thanks to [livejournal.com profile] starsandgraces's amazing autocorrect :F )
6. Tacomouth

THREE THINGS YOU ARE WEARING RIGHT NOW:

1. My tweed (I think it's tweed) newsboy-ish hat that I wear pretty much every day
2. Exciting sweatshirt/coat of fuzz and beauty
3. The "Sex and Sashimi" shirt from [livejournal.com profile] yawmin

THREE THINGS YOU WANT VERY BADLY AT THE MOMENT

1. The guinea pigs to clean my room while I'm at work so I don't have to do it later
2. For my [livejournal.com profile] startrekbigbang to be done
3. The store not to smell like rotting every day starting at 2 pm. Why must this beeee. ;_;

THREE PEOPLE WHOM YOU HOPE WILL DO THE MEME

1. [livejournal.com profile] jou
2. [livejournal.com profile] starsandgraces
3. [livejournal.com profile] sail_aweigh

THREE THINGS YOU DID LAST NIGHT

1. Attempted to hold an aim conversation with [livejournal.com profile] feels_like_fire on my ipod, with laughable results because typing on that shit is awful.
2. Went to "Taste of Tibet" with [livejournal.com profile] infinityduck, then watched the movie "Burnt Offerings" which we thought would be all campy but was actually surprisingly good and suspenseful and distressing.
3. Laid out my gym clothes so I could go when I got up (but I ultimately was toooooo lazy).

THREE PEOPLE YOU LAST TALKED TO ON THE PHONE:

1. Customer
2. Customer
3. Customer (no one calls Amber)

THREE THINGS YOU ARE GOING TO DO TOMORROW:

1. I have to go pick up the paper from my parents' house, cuz they're out of town.
I actually have no idea.
2. Maybe clean some stuff? I dunno if Kat wants to go to the comic store or something like we've been talking about.
3. Try to write, probably.

FOUR OF YOUR FAVOURITE DRINKS:

1. Soda of the "cola" variety, with a strong preference to Pepsi and RC over Coke.
2. Earl Gray tea latte/London Fog
3. Moscato
4. Bottled Japanese teas, like Jasmine and Gogo no Kocha.

THREE THINGS THAT MADE YOU SMILE TODAY:

1. The thought of Peter tricking my boss into hiring someone good. That will make me happy for a long time.
2. Trumpy
3. The fact that the most recent comment from [livejournal.com profile] jactrades on my STBB is her yelling at me about where I decided to stop writing for the night. :F


I should go hang up store anniversary decorations now. I promise I will get to my other memes and such soon and things and stuff. Peace.

RC COLA. I haven't had that in YEARS. Now I have a sudden craving.

Ahaha "sex and sashimi", that is amazing.

It was, for a long time, the soda of my house cuz I felt bad no one paid attention to it. Kind of like how George was my favorite Beatle because no one cared about him. :F

It is the title of a story she wrote! It is for Kenshin and it is is good times!

As it should, since that is a fantastic story of sneakiness.

3. Try to write, probably.

I liked that reading that Trumpy made you smile today made me smile. So thanks for that!

Also, way to take time off and make your boss do her job simultaneously.

You're welcome! Trumpy brings joy to all the children of the world all the time.

Lisa is working my shift RIGHT NOW!!! I'm so pleased.

I'm still hoping for a win on that pumpkin drawing!

Having not heard anything yet, I'm afraid we did not succeed in pumpkinating.

Your boss is the worst, ugh. How damn lazy, that is just ridiculous. I love that you took days off work in retaliation, ha! I have no idea what 'lex talionis' means, but hurrah anyway!

Lol at the idea of worker bee guinea pigs cleaning up, haha, that's so cute!

Customer (no one calls Amber)

D'aww! *squish* Only my mother calls me, if that helps. ALONE FOREVER.

Earl Grey tea will never not make me think of Jean-Luc Picard. ^_^

Good luck with the STBB!

She is something else, I must say. But as I type this, she is working my shift, so I am having the last laugh. Or at least the current laugh.

"Lex talionis" means "the law of retaliation." I just learned it. ;)

THANK YOU FOR THE LUCK! I should be writing but um...I'll get there? >.>

AS WELL YOU SHOULD.

...your boss needs to meet some of the bears I work with. Cage match!

Let's set this up! I bet we could make some good money off these fights, and then we would never have to work again! It's FOOLPROOF.

Your pigs probably haven't been paying the rent either, right? If only they weren't so fluffy and cute and seemingly squishable...

Date: 2011-11-09 06:05 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] maypirate.livejournal.com
Yeah, they have a really good deal going on here. I've thought about telling them to go stand on the corner and have people pay to pet them, but I don't actually want to whore my fuzzy children out.

Still, you'd think maybe they could learn programming or something. Maybe they could make and sell mittens...
