Gawd I am so leaving early today!! Ever since I have gotten back from visiting my family over Christmas my downstairs neihbor has been back to her old habits. I have been having problems with her that started sometime over the Summer. She is a college kid whose parents are paying rent while she and her boyfriend go out at 10pm and come in around 2am-3am every day. Meanwhile I get up at 5am, work a full day at the office and often put in 6hrs in the evening at the book store I work at parttime. So that ends up to be a very, very long day. And as a result some days I just don't want to talk or touch or have any contact with any one. Especially on the days where I have been kept up by my young college neighbor who lives downstairs and whose parents pay her rent so she and her boyfriend can go out at 10pm only to come back at 2-3am talking as loud as if it were the middle of the day waking me up through my bedroom floor and mattresses!! If I had the money to move I'd do it in a heart beat! So far I've made several complaints to the apartment office and when they contact her things do quiet down for a little while about after several weeks or a couple of months it starts back up again. For living there 5yrs I have never had a complaint against me and have lived through many different neighbors but this one takes the cake!! Think it makes it worse that I'm working two jobs just to get by while she gets to go to school and have her bills paid for. Must be nice!
Okay so call me a dork already. I was listening to NPR this morning and they were talking about blogs ect... and the guy who runs their blog mentioned a site called Twitter so of course I had to join! Just another networking site to add to my growing list!!
Omg I hate the day after a 15hr day! What hurts even more is the morning after two 15hr days! Don't try and get me out on a Friday night after I've worked 15hrs both Wednesday and Thursday. I can barely function at the office where my main focus should be. I problem solve at work and do a lot of research trying to locate money or figure out what to do with money that has come in. I get so emotional on those Fridays I hate it. So right now I'm just complaining because I'm exhausted but I know that tomorrow is going to be even worse and am dreading it. At least its casual Friday and I can wear jeans so at least I won't have to work very hard on what I'm going to wear! The things I've worn on those mornings where I've woken up exhausted and am rushing to work you don't want to see!
Last night when I got to my second job I found out I would be backup cashier but mostly doing recovery on the floor which I love! While the main cashier would be Eric who was scheduled an hour before me. Yeah, well, it didn't work out that way which totally sucked. I really need to get to know the layout of the store and where each book and little sections are. Eric is kind of a shy quiet dude and as soon as I logged onto my register he booked it to the floor! That pissed me off but what can I do? I'm a newbie and a really good cashier, have years of experience as a cashier. Now, don't get me wrong, I can handle the register and I don't mind doing it but the thing is I wasn't scheduled to!! Eric was!! And my assumption is that he doesn't like working at the register, you have to converse with people and try to sell memberships, so he took the first oppurtunity and was gone! Next time I'll say something to the manager like; "Hey did I read the schedule wrong? Am I supposed to be CS1?". Thursday nights I'm always the lone cashier so I know what I'll be doing tonight. Now, if only I could get rid of this damn migraine!
Yup, that's me! I currently spend 45hrs a week chained to a cubicle and work an additional 12-16hrs a week at a large book store chain in the mall. When I am not doing that I spend several evenings a month babysitting for families that have contacted me from my profile on a babysitting website.
Tonight I'm working at the store and I wonder if I'm scheduled to be on register or to work customer service? Which would I prefer? Right now I'm already so tired I'm not sure it would make a difference.
