A year and a half (went back last summer because I'm stupid...) and in that whole time I only insulted a customer once. Called him an asshole, was during peek time and there was a line out the door and I was on till and everybody herd me.
But hey, everyone agreed he was an asshole.


Actually, the three white people that worked there were the 3 delivery boys...Dodgy

and OMG comon DLJ! Canberra!!
You're not American, no excuses good sir. Tongue



Just applied for three jobs. Repco (car parts place, so dealing with bogens), New World (grocery store) so dealing with stressed out mothers and my preferred, Noel Lemmings (an electric goods store), so dealing with ignorant grannies.

Oh! That's why all the parliament / federal buildings are in Canberra. I often wondered.

D'oh!

Good luck with the job-thing. Personally I think that the yummy mummies job has more potential Evil_monster

*facepalm*

RE: Ranting corner
My *&^%^#$@R^%^$ waterpump went out yesterday! I have no flowing water, 2 acres of landscaping and vegetables, 3 Llamas and my dogs and cats to water. Can't happen, I can get the dogs and cats but not the landscaping and Llamas. To make it more interesting, we will have a heat wave of 105 degrees today.

So I am facing the loss of years of work and thousands of dollars worth of landscaping.

Additionally frustrating is that I finally got my two aquariums ready to set up after receiving two broken ones, sending them back and getting replacements. I have the substrate in - which is moist and full of beneficial bacteria for a balanced eco system in the aquarium. I poured in the substrate and went to fill the aquarium with water to let it cycle - that's when I discovered I had no water. Probaby now without water the bacteria will die and I have to buy more expensive substrate. Plus I have been chomping at the bit to get these set up for weeks now - and they need one or two weeks to cycle to create the proper environment for plants and fish.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrr.........

How do they expect to get a good education?

Maybe they were as bored at school (in their school) as Muffsy.

They were cutting for the halibut.

Gee, you guys so punny. Dodgy

Yikes and UGH!
I can relate to the 105. In fact, it's kind of freaky when you start thinking of 97 degrees as comparatively "cool"... but that's where I'm at. Confused

Gosh Dom, the plants might be able to take it for a day but, I hope you will at least be able to get the critters watered!! Sadcryface

Pheeeew, got a temp fix. next week they will replace the tank - major expense but what are you gonna do - you need water.

So happy about the temp fix, caught a guy who knew what he was doing.
