Saturday fight live

So the new woman did show up today, and blessed her with her presence. Everybody agreed it was a lovely.. lol I can't do this!

She is in her late 30s, and is acting up more than a poorly raised 7 year old. Asks for guidance, but when given help, she raises hell and claims it might be better for her to learn on her own, don't we think!?! HUH?! Yeah, thats right!

I can ignore shit like that up to a certain point. That point was passed, left and forgotten today..
The cunt (former new woman) was talking to customers, trying to help them while I was 'supervising' the situation. No surprise the cunt wasn't handling things the right way, so I merely gave her some friendly advice. Of course she ignored the advice 3-4 times, and crossed the line. "
JUST LISTEN TO WHAT I AM SAYING! *repeats advice* ITS SIMPLE". I admit, I snapped, but not like I would if we weren't on the clock. I kept my smile, and raised my voice just a bit over normal. But clearly enough..

Shocked, the cunt literally threw everything she was holding (including stuff for the customer), yelled "YOU DON'T TALK TO ME THAT WAY!" and RAN off to the storage room. Yeah, she IS in her late 30s..

I don't know. At that point I just didn't care at all, I just decided to totally ignore her (hey, the circle comes to an end - or something). She really isn't worth my rambling, and I'm going to take it up with my manager/boss.

Also I took next week off. I seriously cba to be in a real life drama, I can't handle it. I would turn it in to a slasher right away.

It wasn't just the one thing, all day she was yelling at the rest of us, complaining and whatnot. But I think she really has some mental issues. Not like padded room issues, but I think she was displaying psychotic tendencies. She needs help! Or a bag of planted cocaine. Haven't decided yet..

TGI Friday

I'm just too tired today. Stayed up laaaate last night, watching House MD, and Lie To Me. Solved the Lie To Me cases straight away, so it was no fun. And I'm just waiting for lupus when watching House MD..

A busy busy day at work too. Seems people are test-shopping for the holidays. Either that, or there's an upcoming apocalypse I should know about.
One of my colleagues is pregnant, apparently. I'm guessing that's why she haven't been in for the last month. Pays to be observant, huh! But she came in to day, for a 4 hour long shift. Left after one hour due to sickness. I can totally accept that, no need to vomit all over my workplace, when you can do it at home! But sticking me with overtime and extra work, when I really need to be collecting snow-globes for the guy in Lucky 38, thats just mean!

I am looking forward to tomorrow, by the way. The new woman is taking a shift! Last time she worked, she said "this is the easiest job I have EVER had! Just have to sit here, relaxing all day!".. Yeah! Good luck tomorrow, busiest day of the week, bitch!

This has nothing to do with anything, I just want to put it here. I can and I will! Come to think of it, this depicts either me, or the new woman, after some hours of work tomorrow:

Today something really funny and heartwarming happened to me. Well, it was a happy moment anyways.. And, no, the new bitch wasn't in today, but next Monday! EXPECT ME!!

I was minding my own business, trying to get some work done. Customers were also minding their own business, trying to ruin my day - as usual.
A young mother came my way, with her kid in a cart. I could tell that the mother was stressed, by looking at the pixles and so on, so she didn't really pay too much attention. The kid, who was about 1-1,5 years old, somehow opened the baby-safety lock on his seat, and stands up. I found myself trapped in a position where I wasn't quite sitting, and not quite standing. I felt concern about the baby, but I was also kind of hoping for something.. Yet I didn't feel bad, after all his mom WAS right there..

So there we were, I standing on my ass, the mother doing.. I don't know, and the little baby. He had climbed to the edge of the cart, so I knew falling off would not be an issue. And he was smiling. REALLY smiling, like only a baby can. HUGE eyes, filled with stupid love and admiration. Towards me.
Right there and then, I saw everything perfectly. I knew what was coming, and I started smiling as well. Had time to think "omgomgyes!", before the mom turned back to check on her baby. I stood up, to get a better smile out to the baby, and the baby started glowing(!) as he reached for me with every loving fiber in his body, yelling "DADDY!!"

I couldn't hold it in, so I reached for him, saying "SON!". We were both smiling lovingly at each other, and it was beautiful!

Then his mom ruined the whole thing.. Somehow teaching the kid that he could think of me as his father wasn't the right thing. She dropped everything, picked up her baby, and ran out of the store.

I felt I lost a great friend at that moment, but I knew that we would see each other again in the future..

Fatherhood, I am ready!

Boooring.. with a twist

I was too tired to care much about anything at work today. All I could think about was how lucky this little girl is..

But that doesn't mean nothing happened! I honestly think I work at the circus of daily life, or a sick parody of normality. Why can't I have just ONE day where nothing out of the ordinary happens? Is that really too much to ask?

So, since the holidays are coming up, things are a bit hectic. We got new stuff coming in all the time, and shelfs are going full. Even the floor is filling. All normal events for a business at this time of year.
We don't even do all the work ourselves! No! The company doesn't even hire others, they just show up. It's crazy! All of a sudden there are twice as many non-regulars working the floor as it is employees. It's a really sweet deal. The companies that sell us stuff, comes over to make sure that their product is being displayed in the best possible way. Then they order what we will be needing for the next two weeks, and then they just leave. Almost like a good date!
And the people are nice quite nice as well. They smile, joke and laugh and the women! Oh the women are stunning! I don't know if its the constant exercise of bending over, lifting up and turning around, but these women are beautiful creatures! Well most of them..

Today, this one thing comes in, totally ignores EVERYONE, and starts working. "... whatever" I said to a colleague, and I got a "yeah, what a bitch" in return, so I knew it wasn't just me.
Being the nice guy I try to be, I tried saying "Hi/Hello" a couple of times throughout the first hours, but to no avail. She kept ignoring everyone around her, even costumers trying to get past her. Until she wanted a small box of some shitty whatchamacallit. "Hey you, get me that box". Well she was asking nicely.. "I'm sorry now what box?"
-The one at the bottom of that pallet of course
-Of course, well help me lift the other 1000lbs of stuff off of it, and we'll have your box in notime!
-?? yeah no! thats not my job. Hurry up, would you?!
-...? fkn shit bitch go die
-I'm on it, mam.

I helped her out, and thought "OK, now I will never talk to that hag again", only to be interrupted by my boss saying "We got a new intern starting today! :)"
"You'll see.. *smirk*"

Fuck that, I turned around and went home. Don't know if I will be in for work tomorrow..
