Just wow.

No money for two weeks. Seriously. I just paid all the bills and there's nothing left.

I've got to work out a better budget.

RE: Ranting corner
I know.

I'm bad.

I had to bring back some tortillas that were totally out of date (sell by date, was June 11!!). I love my store, no questions asked handed me $4 cash (the tortillas were 3.99).

So, I went down the ice cream aisle.

That was a huge mistake. They had Ben and Jerry's for 2.99 a pint.

So yeah, I scrambled some other loose change, and bills and walked out with three of them.

RE: Ranting corner
Watched the dance line of a high school marching band dance a routine more appropriate, by far, for a strip club, while their announcer said something about enjoying "the juiciest peaches." I don't have to work for a school band program, which I do for two, to know how wildly inappropriate that was. So what the flying monkey fuck?!

When I say we - I mean the girl that actually does payroll and me who has been forbidden to participate in payroll. SHE DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO WRITE A CHECK!!!!!!!!!! Facepalm

So here we are writing checks and have about 80 done when, some have been handed out. CFO says stop - we are going to pick up checks from the payroll company. No more handwritten checks. About half end up not being handed out...then others are returned to us because they want 'real' checks.

My entire day was working on something that isn't my job while my actual job and my extra 'help out the inept billing department' job piles up on my desk.

Payroll girl leaves early to take her dog to the vet - again! This is about 6 times in the last month. Guess who got to work late - yeah, don't ever touch payroll person - me.

I told CFO this whole exercise was like a Chinese Fire Drill or another thing that starts with 'c' and has almost the same number of syllables. Dodgy

And, and...I have to go in at 10 tomorrow for a meeting - yep, Saturday morning meeting. I had to postpone the appointment for my dog in order to make it. I made a Saturday appointment so it wouldn't interfere with work...fancy that.

Gosh, I've said it before, but I really hope you find folks who appreciate you and their workers.

RE: Ranting corner
I had a fantastic day at work today. And I had to reset furniture (reorganize) department.
My problem is 100% that I do nightshift. If I did day shift I would be so much happier and stress free.
Day shift is just so much better. My boss during the day is far far superior to my team leader at night. It's busier during the day, always something to do. Never have anyone standing over my shoulder. Time flies by. If I'm doing nightshift 2 hours will go by and I'll be itching to go on break. On day shift 3 and half hours went by before I remembered that I should probably go on break at some point, which I did half an hour later. My boss isn't up my ass, I'm left to work in peace it's so glorious. The day shift staff are better and like me more. There's always plenty of customers to help which makes for nice breaks between stocking shelves and reorganizing the entire furniture department. which makes the job not mundane and boring at all.

I really really need a transfer to day shift.

All I can think of is to not say "just" in your presence.

Failed. Laugh out load

RE: Ranting corner
I need to stop reading newspapers and watching news on TV for a while; I know that picture of the dead syrian three year-old on that beach in Turkey is the picture of the year, but I've been unwillingly faceraped by it three different times, in three different angles and three different mediums. It's takes you five fucking seconds to put up a disclaimer you lazy coldhearted dicks.
