Dull Day (so far)

Now that was a boring afternoon. I walked in at 1, and one of the other volunteers was there, and said something about "Michele's going to be out until 3, but she said you know what you're doing..." That I did, so I walked back to the office that has one of the only color printers in the place, changed the ink cartridge, and printed out 17 copies of the Christmas party flyer that I made up yesterday. That took quite a while to finish, but when it was done, I put everything back to the way it was before I'd gotten there, and went up to one of the computers up front. I couldn't think of anything else that needed to be done first, so I opened up the questions I was working on, and did all of 6 more in two more hours :|

So anyways, I do have to work tonight, from 9 to 4. If I remember correctly, it's me, Kevin, Glenda, and Jerome, and possibly Amy working. I already know what position I'm going to be on. However, thinking back to what previous Thursdays have been like, we shouldn't be that bad tonight. Last week, I got to leave at 1, instead of having to stay to close. Tonight I'm actually scheduled 'till 4, so I'll obviously be staying for the full shift. Just so long as it isn't too busy.

Tomorrow night's going to be sweet as well. I start at 9, and am there 'till 4. Josh is one of the closing managers though, so chances are he'll ask me to stay to actually help close. Maybe I will. It just depends on what things are like when that time rolls around. I'm off on Saturday, which is amazing in and of itself. I've been thinking though... the past few Saturdays (5 at most) have literally seen us with nonstop orders, except for a couple 5 minute breaks. Thus, it won't come as a surprise to me if they try to call me in that night. Here's what I've been thinking of to say in response though. Either "Let me guess. You have solid cars, dishes are piled up at the back, and there's plenty of other stuff to be done. Well, I hate to say it, but I'm going to say no this time. I know what it's like there, 'cause that's what it's been like the past few Saturday nights as well." That or this: "Well, I guess I'll come in, but I'm not going on line or on drive through. I'll do dishes and whatever other stuff needs to be done, but I'm not setting foot up front. If I don't have to, I'm not wearing my uniform either, because as long as the customers don't see me, they'll have nothing to complain about." We've been screwed over on a Saturday night before (when it was me, Eric, and Josh), and yet we managed to be out of there by 5. Last Saturday Ange was looking to call someone in even though we had plenty of people. Two of us were on line, and one was on drive through. There was nothing stopping her from going back to wash dishes, but from what I gathered, the thought didn't even cross her mind. Heh, even after I washed them for an hour, she still had to go do other stuff (that's a lie), so I had to go back up on line. Bah.

I really don't know. They screwed up my days off this week somehow as well. They gave me this Saturday off, then some random day (I think it's either Tuesday or Thursday) off next week. I'd much rather have two days off in a row, because then it allows for much more of a break, as opposed to having single days off aren't really days off anyways. See, in any close, you're there for two days, technically. Say tonight. We'll start on Thursday night, but end Friday morning. So, for example, let's say I had Friday off. I'd end up getting home, sleeping for half the day, doing whatever during the night, then getting up again the next day, and having to worry about being in for work again. It's good for having a night off, but otherwise it doesn't make sense.

Anyways, it's time now for something you might not've expected to ever hear from me. Regarding this name I'm posting under. I got to thinking a couple times in the past whether I really wanted to continue using it or not. First of all, this didn't even start bothering me until I started watching canadianfurs, then I started thinking about "Well, if I'm going to be serious about this, then there are a couple things I'll have to take care of."* See, it comes from this book. Back when I was going through my "dragons = l33t" phase, I joined a couple sites that had to do with 'em, and I used this name. I'm sure if you read the book description you'd be able to figure out why ;) Obviously I no longer go to those sites (nor do I even have the desire to), so one of the things that bothered me at first was "Do I really want to continue using this name, even though it holds such a dark past for me?" I think my answer is yes.

Not only can I not think of a better one, but I've used it for so long that I don't think I'd be able to get used to another one. Yeah, there are some things connected to it that I'd rather weren't there, but it's too late to do anything about them now :p

* the other one is actually telling other people about all these things. I really don't care what their reactions are anymore. I just want to get this stuff out on the table. Soon though. Very soon :)
