next entry

well, after the last post i will fill you in on the next few weeks of how my life went.  so i had just quit my job, i had also gotten my tax money back, so i was set for cash for a bit. however i still wanted to get a job ASAP. so i started job hunting immediately. after about 2 weeks i got called for an interview at walmart to unload trucks. i was extremely surprised about that. i went in to the interview and was told it was a difficult job. they asked if i was still interested, i said yes. they gave me a piece of paper and told me that as long as i passed a drug test i would have a job. i passed the drug test. went in for orientation, got all the info i would need and started the next day.

catch up

ok, so i realize that since my last post a lot has happened. i never told yall i had a job at walmart. so ill start from where my last post left off.

 i was transferred to a different store, located on just down the road from Busch Gardens. this store was terrible. it was run by a lazy woman and all her employees were just like her. when i came they just threw ALL their responsibilities on my shoulders. i would literally walk i the door, clock in and find them sitting in the back office while i had to take care of customers waiting in the lobby. i was there for 3 months. during this time my car, a 1967 Chevy Impala, started acting up really bad.

Eventually it just stopped running altogether. there was a lot of stress during this period, but luckily tax time came around and a perfect storm occurred which led me to walk out of that store and never return. That story deserves its own post so i'll hold that one until next time.

lets see where this goes

Well, I decided to return again and post more stuff here. A lot a changed since my last post, for one, i am out of a job. I no longer work for Wal-Mart. I'll leave it at that. so for the past month i have been searching. i went out and got my class d security license. hopefully that plans out. I've been playing minecraft a lot lately. its something to do while waiting for the phone to ring. its 2:30 am right now, so this post is going to cut short. I'll be back tomorrow. there is a lot still to talk about.

last day

well, today was my last day at my current store. it was eventful to say the least. it started at 8:30, when i arrived. after waiting 20 minutes, my manager finally showed up to let me in the store. she immediately ran to the beck crying her eyes out. after clocking in, locking the doors and turning on the lights i finally ask her what was wrong. apparently while she was getting ready for work, her dad was mauled by 2 pitbulls... while she was watching. ao i told her to leave and that i would handle the rest of the her shift. so before i could start my morning routine, i had to call around and find a person to come in so we wouldnt be understaffed. eventually i found someone to come in. everything was going smoothly for aobut an hour, untill out bun toaster stopped working. the gears started sueeking, then screeching until they just stopped spinning. so i opened it up and sinsce we didnt have any wd-40 i sprayed it with Pam. this worked, but it still squeeked all day. very annoying. then our customers started coming and i dont know what got into people today, but they were all asses. one asked if our drive-thru guy was a breech baby, then another just flat out called him a f'er. they yelled at us and claimed we were overcharging them, treatening to call our corporate office to tell them. i refused to give them anything, but the others snuck the free food to them.  people, man.

a lul in gaming

for the time being i am out of new games to play. its been a crazy 3 months, what with skyrim, saints row, assassins creed, dark souls, and arkham city. with soul calibur, racoon city, mass effect, the darkness, ninja gaiden, and the recently announced Resident Evil 6 coming down the pipeline it seems that the gaming market is becoming flooded with a-list games. this is NOT a bad thing, it just means that my wallet is going to be tighter that usual. now on to the 3 month update.

 i got my brother a job where i work. i was in line to get a promotion, but the higher ups put a halt on all promotions to focus on making more money (for them). about that time our district manager got transferred and a new guy took over our area. then about 2 weeks after the new guy took over, he promoted my brother. needless to say, i was pissed. now i am being transferred to another location that adds 30 minutes onto my morning commute. all because the new guy wanted a team that didn't really know the previous DM. but it gets better! i am not just working at the store i am transferring to, but am still working at the store i am at now. i they have me working both locations and am getting 10 hours less a week than i made just working at on store. this is going to kill my gas, a 67 impala isn't good with fuel.

i am probably forgetting something, but it will come to me later. its good to be back.
