Thanks for Listening, Josh

Shortly after I clocked in tonight, he asked me if I'd talked to Alec (someone who worked there last summer) recently, and I said no. Apparently he (Josh) is going to have to get me in touch with him because he's furry as well... Problem is, he used that exact word, so screw the trying to keep it hidden. One of the things I still don't want to have happen is to have one of them find my LJ here, and one of these times I'm going to forget to change the "Send From" thing to that throwaway address. Thus, they'd have my real email, and all they have to do is search Google for that. One of the results is my thing on furry.ca, wherein I included a link to this :s

Really though, the only one I still have to tell is Ange, and that's purely because I don't know what email address she's using now.

There was something even better than that later on in the night though. Josh and I were out in the dining room sitting down, and he asked something like "This furry thing you're into... is it a sexual thing?" Told him that it could be ("could" in the "It depends on which way you look at it" sense), and of course, his next question was "Well is it for you?" Erf. Said that I wasn't going to tell him, because some things are better to remain mysteries (I was going to say "better left unsaid", but that would mean "Yes, but I'm not going to tell you"), followed by some other question after that. I can't remember exactly what he said then, but it had something to do with "Is it the fur, or...?", followed by him telling me that he likes long legs. Great Josh, seriously, but to quote Manoah, "I don't want to know what you do in your bedroom, and you don't need to know what goes on in mine."

And then right at the end of the night I put the tail back on while I was changing, despite him having previously said that if I was wearing it in his car he'd shove me out while moving at high speed :p

The thing about Alec is interesting though. Apparently Patrick's (somebody we were friends with in high school) Mom saw me wearing one while I was on my way somewhere (to work, presumably), so next time he saw Josh, he asked if I was a furry, which must've been after I sent him the email, because he said yes. Then some friend of Pat's asked where I live so he could come burn our house down ;_; Thus far, I haven't had any problems wearing a tail around, outside of the initial getting over my apprehension the first time with Noir, but I'm not just going to say "Oh, meh" if I run into anyone that actually tries to make a problem out of it. I'm wearing a tail because I'm a furry, and they just take up space on my chair otherwise. I don't care if you don't like it, but please at least *try* to keep it to yourself, or be civil about it.

Anyways though, went to Sobeys about an hour after getting home, with the airbrushed one instead, so next time I have to work (Saturday), I might wear that one in. We'll see ^^ I'd still like to be able to meet up with you again sometime, Noir, and probably just walk around the park / swing on the swings, or take a longer walk again depending on what the weather's like, so what do you say to next Thursday or Friday?

But finally, in terms of handpaws and ears, sent the email to SPark, but still haven't heard back from her, so if there's nothing by this time tomorrow or so, I'll poke her to see. Chesh should at least have the ears started as well. I requested she let me know when they get shipped out too, and got a "not a problem ^_^" in reply, so I'm just waiting on that now too~ It would be cool to have them by the next time I go to London, but that all depends on how fast she gets them done. I suppose I shouldn't complain though. Half a year later, and I'm still getting a pair of ears for free ^^;

It's time I was heading to bed once again though. I could write about work, but it was pretty much a standard shift outside of that furry stuff, and being called by Karen (from home) for a URL for a website to download homebrew PSP games *shrug* Hopefully it remains cold too, because I'd like to sleep in for as long as I possibly can. The first step is getting upstairs though~

More Thoughts About Work

They aren't so much thoughts as much as stuff that's been going on, but the other word sounds alot better :p

[1] As soon as I walked in on Tuesday night, Joe said he had a serious question for me. At first I thought it was going to be about the tail, but as it turns out, he has some sort of plans for this Friday, and had asked everyone else possible to cover his shift (5 - 9, I think), but they all said no. In his words I was his "Last hope", which is really annoying. How exactly am I supposed to say no to that? But thankfully he left without ever getting a definite answer, although I should also mention that he offered to give me $20 to go along with it as well. I don't mind getting called in at night, as long as they're willing to meet *my* conditions, but for a supper shift is a different story. I plan on going there tonight with Adam though, because Manoah wants to buy his other PSP, and Joe might be there then too...

[2] One of the other things Josh brought up last night was how he and Earl got into a shouting match outside the other afternoon, and how Earl wants to get him fired either because of the outcome of it, or for something he did beforehand. Apparently it's going to take an awful lot to do so, because of how long he's worked there, and I don't see why Earl can't just suck it up, given that Josh is moving to London in August. From what I've heard though, he's having other problems outside of work, so that could be one of the causes too. I'm not sure where Josh got the other thing he said, but if it's true, Earl won't be the GM for a whole lot longer anyways, and if / when he does get let go, they're probably going to "clean house" of the rest of the managers, and almost all the staff will leave too because our store is one of the most lax there is, and they won't like all the new rules and such. That went on to how I'd be fired if I didn't have my shirt tucked in three times, or would be sent home if I didn't have my name tag on, and the like. I hope it doesn't actually come to that, but even if it does I can't picture things turning out to be as horrible as he seems to think they'll be. The biggest thing will be stuff we normally do on closes, like bagging line, or cleaning the fry dump, and in those cases, it's a simple matter of asking "Can this be done?" and if the answer is no, "Why not?" All we hear these days is "You guys can't be doing this at night", and I'd like to know why bertha, for example, can't be bagged. Surely it's a better idea to clean and put a garbage bag inside it, so in the event it gets filled up, the bag can simply be taken out, and a new one put in. It has to be a good deal more sanitary than letting the stuff accumulate in there all day is.

[3] Further to the Shawn coming in to check up on us thing, recent events have shown that relatives of his come through instead, and as opposed to phoning in the morning, or the same night, if they have a problem with their order, they go to him. I could be sure I wrote about this before, but I guess I am again. I got into a slight argument about it with Josh last night, which culminated with him asking me if I thought he should be coming through to order their food for them then, and completely missed the point in doing so. If we get told that Shawn will be coming in to make sure we're doing things right, then he himself should be doing so. If he can't be bothered to do that, however, and instead either asks his relatives to go for him, or they come through without being asked and still have some sort of problem, there's really no way to hold that against us. At least for him. Earl and / or Shelia, sure, but not Shawn himself. The only unfortunate part of that argument is that I doubt I'll ever actually have a chance to use it.

But also before I forget the few bits I do remember of them, Collapse )

At any rate though, it's probably time we were off. Oh, and enjoy your parties, Noir ^^ I could've just posted that in a comment to that entry, but that'd entail saying something about the rest of it, and I really can't think of anything good :s
