Thanks Mom...

Got to work, knocked on the door, and Josh opened it up. First thing out of his mouth was "You're not supposed to be here." Apparently Earl canceled my shift (as well as Steve's), most likely because there were too many people closing tonight. 5 is plenty enough, but meh. However, instead of just telling me to go home, he said something about "But Steph wants you to take her shift, so she can go home". So I wanted to say "No, I want to go home", but then I'd have felt guilty all night, but at the same time I didn't want to say "Yeah I'll take your shift for you", because then I'd be screwing myself over. Josh also tried to offer me an incentive, by saying that if I stayed, we could probably convince Dad to run to his house first, so he could pick up his guitar (for Guitar Hero II), and that way we'd be able to do some more two player. Two glaring problems with that.

First of all, regardless of what happens, Dad would have to stop at his house first, no matter what. Second problem is that the odds of him changing things as soon as we got in the van are very high. Instead of him coming over here, I'd end up going to his house instead. He's done it before. Oh cynicism~

So finally Steph (assumedly) got tired of waiting and told me it was fine if I wanted to go home, so I did.

Excellent timing too. Ange arrived right then, stomping all around the place, snapping at Alec about his shirt not being tucked in, and getting even angrier after he said "Whoa". Just as an observation right now, it almost seems as if she's behaving like Earl. She's a manager, but she knows people don't treat / see her as one, and thus is quick to point out any flaw, mistake, or oversight anyone happens to make. And I get to work with her tomorrow night. Oh yay. With Elischa too. Although I haven't yet worked with her since she started there again, so whatever.

But as for Ange, it's almost like she's taken what power she has over the regular employees, and stretched it way out of proportion. Yes, managers have the right to tell people what to do, but they are not supposed to snap at other people if they make an... unfavorable comment - if you were a manager, and told me to drop fries, and I did, but not before saying something with a tone that gave away that I wasn't pleased, there's no call to get all pissed off about it. Well actually, either the power-hungry theory, or maybe she just had a bad day. Actually, what's more, while I was trying to decide whether to stay or go home, I figured I'd try to phone Mom to see if she did get the message or not, and used the closest phone, that being the one in the back office. Then afterwards, I was still sort of standing in it, as Ange walked in, and the first thing out of her mouth was "What are you doing in the managers' office? No regular employees back there period!" Feh.

But that aside, called for a ride around 10, then went to the bank (where I managed to find out the amounts of those deposits Paypal made, so I've got that all set up now), then to Shoppers, to get Dad a Fathers Day card, then to Tim Hortons after that, and finally back home. What a night~

Still quite a few hours left though, so might as well find something else to do :3
