For anyone who has been following along with the shit show that has been my job since January, guess what?!

 

I got moved to a new store... a new shift and have had a ton of unwanted responsibility dumped on me.... AGAIN.

 

Starting tomorrow I'm the Manager/Weekday opener at yet another restaurant... I don't want to be there, I don't want to do this job, but I do want more money, I do want to save the money I no longer have to spend on a bus pass and I do want predictable hours... There are serious wins and some serious fails about this damn job, we'll see which one wins out and if I start job hunting for real again...

 

Anyhow, actual challenge goals!

 

  • Rebuild my sleep schedule, sleep 10-5 on Sunday-Thursday nights, get 7 hours of sleep a night on weekends
  • Lift 3 days a week, dunno which days, depends on how alive I feel after work (I will make an actual plan when I see what work is going to be like going forward)
  • Start and Finish scarves for my two little nieces for Xmas this year, I want that shit done asap :P If I finish them I will continue working on the knitting project I started for myself in summer.

 

For now that's it, I don't think I can handle much more with how in flux my daily life is going to be.

 

Wish me luck people! Or if no luck can be tossed at me, helpful tips on hiding a body are welcome. :)

I will, for the remainder of this challenge, attempt to rhyme Leigh and die because my brain is ridiculous like that.

 

So, manager huh? That sounds like a promotion to me. You actually get the title and pay to go with it?

It's a slight promotion, I'm normally an assistant manager, which I enjoy, but I'm not looking forward to this new store... the staff are either really new, or have reaaaaally tight availability so I'm already having issues with the schedule and I've been working there a grand total of one shift... FML :/

Making Christmas gifts... that's something I should get on top of. Last year I crocheted a ridiculous number of scarves (+ one pair of handwarmers) in a short amount of time because in December I had the bright idea of giving hand-made gifts.

 

Yeah, I usually like to start my xmas yarn projects in summer, and I doubt I'll have any issues at all making scarves for two little kids (4 and 1) and they're both girls and both hyper girly with their colour preferences so it'll be easy, if nauseating... I loath pink as anything other than nail polish or hair colour haha :D

Like the instructional video, use your levers and assists to reduce the raw weight you need to heft. The trickiest part is their torso, so maybe consider scooching the body into a trashcan, and then rolling it up a pair of 2x4's? Remember, the only PR that matters in loading a corpse, is not getting caught.

Everyone knows to cut the body up into manageable pieces for disposal.  And also to remove all the teeth before you feed them to the pigs.

I woke up today at 3:45 am to go to work early because that store is unfamiliar to me after being away from it for so long... I worked from 4:45 until 2:45 then went home... Only to get a message from my closer that she is violently puking and is going to the doctor because she feels like she is literally going to die. I ask every single employee that knows how to close and they all cannot. I ask the manager at the other store (the one I was stuck working nights at for most of this year) and he's got nobody.... So now I get to go back to work in twenty minutes and train a new guy AND close the store... that I have to then turn around and open tomorrow morning...

 

I've had about 4 hours of sleep, badly broken up and I have had a grand total of a Clif bar and a salad that I didn't like to eat today...

That's awful and I'm so sorry you have to deal with that.

But...

 

EAT YOUR FOOD! THEN EAT SOME MORE! If sleep is shit, you need to keep your energy up. Really Focus on good food choice until you can level things out.

I'm trying to do that, but being the broke jerk that I am, I'm trying to save up for Xmas starting now so I'm on work food for meals, and anyone who works in food service with fresh veg know that sometimes you just have really shitty veggies (over ripe tomato, bitter celery and/or peppers, really watery cucumber, etc) so work food has been a chore so far. I didn't get any real time to eat last night but my lovely girl friend send me back to work with a container of chicken and shrimp curry we had the night before. Right now I'm honestly more worried about my stress levels and my caffeine intake than what I'm eating.

 

Besides... I could do with a cut... *pokes her middle* :P

 

But yeah, I do need to work on better food choices, but I think this week and next week are going to be me in full survival mode until I hit equilibrium at work or tell my boss that I need to transfer back to my home store pronto or he needs to find a new employee willing to put up with that store and it's nonsense.

See that's the problem right there, the secret to Teleportation is on page 2 of Google search... haha :D I was okay last night though, had one of the better rookies working with me until close so that I could attempt to get his closing training started (I did badly, but I wasn't in any shape to be really putting forth the effort given how pissed off and tired I was at the time). Got out at five after 11 so I got about 4.5 hours of sleep last night. I hope tomorrow goes better than today and that people stop pulling crap on me so I can learn this damn job and either do well at it, or at least survive so that I can hunt for something better.

Sleep was on point last week with the exception of the Wednesday night horror story that was work. I've yet to get any lifting done, but considering how stressful last week was, I am not surprised by this at all. I'm about to toss in some laundry and take a peak into my yard pile to see if I have some workable colours for the scarves for tiny humans, and if not, I'm going to trek over to my local Michael's and pick out some suitably garish colours for my ultra girlie nieces :D

 

Lifting is tentatively scheduled for tomorrow after work, but it's inventory day and I am unfamiliar with the program I need to use so I'm not going to be all that upset with myself if I'm too tired to get to my workout after work tomorrow.

 

Cheers nerds!

I have been eaten by bears... angry "My job is currently insane" bears and I will return when they have been chased away and I can finally breath without screaming....

 

Seriously... work is nuts. If I'm feeling up for it later this week I'll do a big post about all the shit that's happening...

 

But in the mean time, as far as challenge goals are going, I am finished both knit/crochet projects for my nieces and I'm almost getting enough sleep... Working out is a wash out because my feet are dead when I get off work and I'm tired as hell so m'eh, I guess I could say I get in lifting on Tuesday/Fridays at work because the order is like 500lbs each day and while that is light as hell for what I usually lift, it's still something!

My first two ish weeks on the job in point form because I need to get it out and a few of you seem mildly curious...

  • The store is in shambles (damaged shelves, things falling down all over the place, holes in the walls, lights burned out, etc)
  • the pop machine flooded and it took Pepsi 4 hours to send us a tech to fix it...
  • My weekend opener quit
  • My weekend mid-shift girl/Friday night closer quit
  • Everyone tried to book off Halloween
  • None of my part timers want to work on friday night
  • One girl needs exactly 20 hours a week or she can't pay rent, and no more than 20 hours a week because she's on a student visa and is not permitted to work more than that
  • My only fully trained staff member that can work weekdays fucked up so hard we failed out inspection so badly we could have been shut down...
  • I was told that he was going to be fired
  • I was then told we would keep him...
  • Only four of the staff, myself included had the correct uniform
  • Three people lost their fucking hats! And then stole the spares and then lost/damaged those ones
  • the mobile application for counting inventory and inputting delivery invoices failed so hard it destroyed my inventory counts one hour before week end paperwork had to be submitted (AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!)
  • Two idiots at work prepped Roast Beef when we already had a full container and a backup... so I had to throw out almost half a case of perfectly good meat because it was now no longer food safe because the packages had been opened... And I can't even lay correct blame on that, and/or teach people how to prevent this mistake because they put names on the bins for staff that were not at work that day -_-
  • My store owner keeps flooding the floor of my back room doing the dishes because he is insane.
  • I am missing like 4 signs that I am required to have in the store
  • Three of the signs that are up on the wall have incorrect prices on them...
  • No matter what I do, my vegetables start to freeze within an hour of placing them in the front counter.
  • Every single hot food bin in the store has a crack in it...
  • NOBODY has been cleaning the coffee machine since they got it like two months ago... It is to be cleaned DAILY
  • The power went out for a second or two yesterday and reset all the timers for baking bread to zero...
  • my cash register software crashes during lunch 50% of the time
  • my customers are some of the most ignorant assholes I have ever served, they also mumble, look down, take phone calls in the middle of me asking them what they want on their lunch and 5 of my regulars don't seem to understand the concept of showering or doing laundry...
  • I have never come into work to find the same work done for closing the night before
  • our cash register NEVER balances because NOBODY is following the clear instructions I have laid out
  • The A/C broke and it is currently a toasty 85F/30C in the store at all times
  • I am left ALONE at work for up to 6 hours at a time and am unable to use the washroom without constant fear of the store being robbed while I'm in there...

The only good thing about this is horrible shit show that is my new job is that I was able to give my idiot room mate Jordan a job. And he's actually picking it up fairly well. Which means:

  • He is actually out of the house a few days a week so if he's working when my sister is working I actually have some peace and quiet..
  • He's earning money so he can buy himself healthier foods, pay slightly more towards rent, and will be able to get Christmas gifts for his family and us without having to borrow money and very slowly pay it all back.
  • I have one reliable employee with full availability that I get along with.

Oh... and our fucking toaster craps out every three sandwiches during rush times, which slows everything down and also makes a horrible beeping sound that makes my tinnitus go nuts

 

I've been eating like crap, sleeping like crap and haven't had enough free time or energy to do anything fun at all these past two weeks. Hell I even skipped out on WoW Raid last weekend because I was too stressed to focus on it :( I miss my friend Steven from the other store. I miss my snarky gov't regulars. I even miss the droning construction noise.

 

Bonus points: I found cute, comfy skate shoes for me and my girl friend for $9 each, and found a totally random thing that is going to be mailed out to one of you Nerds for the holiday season. Muahahhahaha! But I'm not telling who :P

I think you are on the same continent, but not the same country... unless you're not in Florida anymore? I think you said you had shuffled over that way the last time I checked.. :P

 

And yeah... I know it will get better, or it will result in me giving my boss the ultimatum of "transfer me back to my old store and find someone to manage here or I'm quitting right this second." which would only be a slightly empty threat... I will quit, but I'll find a new job first at least. But if I find one that wants me to start asap I will no notice quit on him and he can deal with it. I can handle a hell of a lot of stress but even I have my limits.
