Last night, as with Friday, went pretty well. That's not to say I want to close with Melissa as much as possible from now on, but it's fun having a change of pace, and as Laura noted to me last night, things are going back to normal starting at 8pm this evening. Fair enough, but to bring this up again (albeit in a slightly different manner), I have a new reason to be glad for going away, and it is that I won't have to work with Laura for a bit. It's not really her working style that I find irritating (except for when somebody comes in who she knows, and she drops practically everything to give them free food), but rather her personality. To take an example from last night, when I first walked back to put my uniform in the bathroom, she said that Orlando and I could argue over who would be on what when we started. I had no reason to think she wasn't being serious, so when he arrived, I told him what I would prefer to be on, and we did indeed bicker over it for a bit, which carried into the back, where Laura heard us and laughed at my thinking she actually meant what she said before. Her exact words were "You're the only one who takes what I say seriously!", and in my defense, is that actually a bad thing? It's just like back on Monday when I was working a supper shift, and she asked me to tell Orlando what Monday nights were to her. I thought my answer of doing a certain extra cleaning task was proper, because she postponed said task from Saturday to Monday the week before that, but she actually wanted me to tell him "Monday closes are get-out-of-here-as-quickly-as-possible nights", and assumed I was being sarcastic as such. On an unrelated note, Monday nights are, for me, clean the grease trap nights now, which she is none too pleased about, but otherwise, I just find her difficult to work with, and I'm sure she feels the same way of me.
At any rate, I find myself in pretty much the same situation as yesterday now, except I've given myself some more time, since I need to have a shower before work to wash the last remaining bits of not feeling well earlier this morning away. Also, before leaving for work last night, I was the only person in the house, whereas everybody else is here tonight, but that doesn't make quite as much of a difference. I'll just go have a shower and hope that wakes me up a bit, then probably continue playing DJMAX games on my PSP after that. I'm getting better at the 4 button mode, but sadly, it is the easiest one, except for Clazziquai Edition, where there's a 2 button version, which I've only watched Manoah try to play. I am getting somewhat better with 6 buttons as well, but not enough that changing the notes or gear (playing field frame) can't throw me off. More practice can only help, I guess~
