There's Good Here Somewhere

I suppose I could argue that it gives me a head start on the end of the month, but nonetheless, I am slightly miffed with something coming up involving work. Specifically, there's another staff meeting next week. Mandatory as usual, and it's held on Monday this time, but unlike before, there's only one time slot available (that is, Mary wants to have only one meeting), and it is 9am. What does that mean for me? That I close tonight, as normal, then go in to work again tomorrow for hopefully another normal shift, but then stay up until 9am following it to go see what's so urgent that we need to all be gathered in one place this time. I suppose it might have something to do with that thing Manoah told me about last weekend, but that would still be a bit of a stretch, so what else could be going on? All I can think of is that it has something to do with the two new notes I saw last night. One was to the effect of that there were to be no personal conversations held between employees at all, and the other said that the office is not a break room. Laura said Chelsea is / was responsible for both, but yeah, things. Getting back to how that affects me, I get to then make it back home around 10:30 or so, hopefully get to sleep by noon, and get at most five hours of sleep, before heading back to work to push through what will undoubtedly be an interesting night. That whole situation is made somewhat better by having Tuesday through Thursday off yet again, but for the moment, I just want Monday to be here right now so the meeting can be done and over with. Oh, and finally, to top it all off, on Monday after next, I close with Mary. I can't say I see that as a bad thing, but I just hope it goes the same as things did the last time I closed with her.

In other news, the way certain things regarding money have turned out (as of this afternoon) is somewhat amusing. Without me saying anything at all, Tom gave me $40 immediately after he walked in last night. Manoah, on the other hand, seemingly forgot to leave his $80 in the safe, so when I left last night, I assumed I would not get it back until Monday, but then he sent me a message in MSN about an hour ago. Following that, we had a brief conversation, in which he told me that he couldn't pay me back right away, because when he woke up this morning, his phone wasn't working, so he had to go out and get a new one. Everything else aside, I could be upset with him and his priorities, but it wouldn't be fair, because I ended up in roughly the same situation with those events that led to me getting this new laptop. Besides, it's not as if I can't make do until our next pay. Maybe what I'll do is withdraw $100 on Monday morning (since I'll be out anyway), use $60 of that to pay for the internet for this month, and keep $40 for myself. That plus the $40 Tom gave me last night, and $15 already in my wallet would be $95, and that's quite plenty.

Same as last night though, I need to be off now, but also the same, there are a couple things to be done first. I should still have enough time~
