10 Items or Longer and other stuff
I was in Whole Foods today and had only 2 bottles of water, so I decide to get in the 10 items or less line because the people in the other lines had a lot of stuff. Um, why did it take me 15 FREAKIN' MINUTES when the people in front of me had less than 10 items? I stood there watching the other lines going faster, and this lady in one line I would have been in was at the register and leaving and I was still in line....WITH 2 STINKIN' BOTTLES OF WATER! Sheesh!

Today I also totally forgot I had a blog, I was so busy worrying about my job. I forgot to come to my online support system. How's it going you ask? Well, Friday was better, much better. There is a lot of data entry and I have a lot to do on Monday, but you know what? I'm just gonna do it as fast as I can, rushing never gets you anything but mistakes, which I can't afford. Ever.

I know they wish they had one of those I, Robot robots there to work like a slave, but they don't, they have me, and I can't do it as fast as they want, at least not yet and I have to learn to just let it go that I can't do what they want right now, I'm still adjusting.

I know they're a cheap ass firm, but they really do need two Receptionist, why load one with all that damn confusing work? Friday I answered the phones while she did the data entry, that's the way it's supposed to work so twice the work can get done. They're so stupid and backward. I've resigned myself to a year (If I make it) then I'm outta there. Just long enough to get some more experience and fatten my resume. They don't pay enough for the continued headache.

Oh, and a Legal Secretary gave her 2 weeks notice on Friday. That's why the Office Manager is freaking out, no one wants to stay. I went into her office to tell her something and she asked me 'How's it going? Does this seem like a job you'd wanna stay in?' WTF? What was I gonna say ? "I don't know, I'll let you know by Friday if I'm gonna stay or not? or how about "Hell now, this shitty job, but it's all I got so yeah, I'll stick it out for a while and let you know." Idiot.

I bought myself the first season of Roswell today. It was a treat to myself. I think you should always treat yourself.

I hope I do okay on Monday. I'll let you know on Tuesday.

You guys are great.

    I hate it when I get into the wrong line. I'm notorious for choosing poorly when I'm at the drive up windows at the bank.

    Ooh! Good quote...but please tell Mimi she'd better not go calling ME a "bag"! ;D ;p

    Don't you wish you could win the lottery & never worry about any of life's not-so-little problems again? Need water? Rind a bell! Need to pay bills? Automatic bill payers are great! But only if you have the money in the account, damn it.
    Some day, we will look back on this period in our lives and laugh, right?

    Diva--With the way you get around, you'd never be compared to a wrinkly old bag, I bet your bodies tighter than a rich mans fist. Right? LOL

    Steph--I WANT to be able to look back one day and laugh. But what I really want is to be looking back in a year to when I started this stupid job and to the 2 weeks notice I'd be giving them. Yes, If I could fast forward a year, I would.

    And the 'all money' thing? Sweet! Sometimes I fear I'm gonna be a professional job looker. lol

    Mr. Fab--My mom goes 'well, you wanted a job, you got one' That didn't help. Oh, and yeah, I landed in the middle of a great big wad of it. And it ain't pretty.

    "your bodies tighter than a rich mans fist"

    LMAO!!! *Ahem* That'd be a, "No". But thank you for thinking that ;D.

    Diva--lol, oh and I realized I spelled 'bodies' wrong, it should have been 'body's' but anyway, who's correcting, right? heh, I thought you'd like that one.

    Good luck hon, at least things are going a little better. You need to give yourself more time....you are still learning. I dont know why they dont pay a decent wage....it would certainly give people more of a reason to stick it out with that job.
