Of Course This is Going to Look Suspicious

I'm still waiting 'till 4 just to give them the benefit of the doubt, but if I'm not feeling better by then, will be calling in. Yeah, I could just go in and drag myself through a second shift in a row where I'm sick, but no, and they already have Michelle, Orlando, and Marissa (a new girl that would at least be able to work drive through) closing. I'm actually supposed to be done at 3 if I were to go in, and even if I did I would make sure Michelle saw for herself that I was sick / not feeling well, and would prefer to get the dishes / prep caught up for them, but still, I shouldn't be anywhere near there while I'm still in this condition, so we'll see what happens in an hour and a half.

As for what will look suspicious, a certain coworker sent me an email asking for my help with registering them for a certain site. One of those that offers to give you all the secrets and training necessary to make tidy sums of money each day just from randomly surfing the internet. At first I was just going to suggest that it might be a scam, and let them actually figure it out on their own, but then I went so far as to get to the payment page, and was rather bemused. No Paypal, no Google Checkout, hell, no option to contact them about sending a check or money order. Then again, to be fair the "Electronic Shipping" price was only two dollars, but what, pray tell, is electronic shipping? Are you truly expecting somebody to pay for you to send them an email? Anyways, the response I sent to the individual in question was as follows:

So yes. As you can see by reading that, I warned them I might be calling in sick, but assuming I do, they could very well end up thinking I'm avoiding them because I said no. That is a problem I'll deal with if it comes up though, because first and foremost I'm not about to give *my* card number out to a shady site like that (although it does only have ~$8 on it right now, so it would be funny for the first few minutes to see what happened when they tried to take $70 off of it ^^;), and I'm also not going to let somebody I know fall for something like that, even if they are just a coworker.

On the good side of email things though, I received one early yesterday morning to say another package was shipped out and should be here within 6 - 10 business days. I am quite looking forward to that, but it may require me to rearrange my room too, the biggest problem with that is the location of my bed in relation to where the outlets are, but meh. With the way things are going, I'll have most of the night to do nothing constructive with, and that could count ^^ Also along the same line, I came to the conclusion the other afternoon that my closet really needs to be cleaned out, because there are years upon years of old school work in there, along with a plastic toy dish set, bags of bedding or other bedroom-related stuff I can't use, and other such fun things. Therefore, everything that isn't *mine* can be put into the spare room, and Mom and Dad can decide if they want to do anything with it or just leave it there.

Anyways, I might as well go get calling in done and over with, and give them a decent amount of time to find somebody else to close (James is the only one that comes to mind, unfortunately, and he worked yesterday night too...), so let's go find the phone, then see what happens after that. Surprisingly, Dyno has yet to be online this afternoon, and DJ signed in for only a minute earlier, which was long enough for him to read the pounce I set up, but then he went offline again and hasn't been back yet either, which he's been doing an increasing amount lately, but then again, I will have the rest of the night to wait here and see if either of them come online again, so maybe~
