Going on what I hope is a job interview tomorrow. I'm wearing a dress, tights, maryjanes, and hoping for the best! In other news, some guys really need to man up. No, I will not hop on the bus and ride for a couple of hours, then transfer to whatever transit system your redneck county offers just because you can't be bothered to get in your car and come pick me up. I can already guess that you wouldn't have been worth it anyway.

This Christmas seems to be coming together nicely. I usually can't stand Christmas and always want to just skip over it, but I'm really satisfied with how this one's turning out so far.

I was able to buy everyone on my list (three people) what they wanted. I've already visited a lot of my family members, some I haven't seen in years or am just now meeting for the first time. We aren't completely broke like we usually are this time of year, and that's a great thing.

This all adds up to a nice Christmas, in my book. Going to do my best to make sure this keeps up!

What's your favorite holiday food? Is there any holiday dish you hate?


I LOVE turkey! Although I do think ham feels more appropriate for Christmas, I don't really care for it. I also love cranberry sauce (COLD) and little appetizers people make for holiday parties, even though I never attend many holiday parties. Pie is another must. For dishes I hate, there's fruit cake and any type of congealed salad. Disgusting.

So maybe I can actually commit to using LJ again. We'll see how well it goes this time. For now, I must get back to my second cup of hot chocolate and catching up on missed Gossip Girl episodes. Wish I didn't have to work tomorrow!

Apparently, I have not updated in eleven weeks, and I am not ok with that. So I'm just writing this to have some kind of recent update.

Nothing new is really going on. Same old stuff with work. I'm desperately searching for a new job. It's not that I'm not grateful for the one I have. I am. I NEED my job. I just would like to find a better one. I've been working at Kroger for about a year and a half, and I feel like that is long enough for me. Of course, I will not quit the job I have until I find another one. But I am looking.

That is all for now, I guess.

What a day it has been. Well, I'm mostly just referring to the four hours and forty five minutes I spent at work today, but maybe also the after effects of the stressful workday I've had.

I don't really feel like getting into much detail about it, which seems stupid, because if I didn't want to get into details, why would I even make an entry? But I guess I just kind of feel like bringing it up. In summation, the people I work with are highly unprofessional. And I'm not even talking about my fellow cashiers. I'm talking floor supervisors and members of management. Well, I'm really only referring to one person in particular right now. I think I'm just going to make it a point to keep to myself on each and every shift I work from now on. There are few people I can trust at my ghetto-ass place of employment and I'm just going to keep that in mind. Fuck them. I'm sick of that place and if I could afford to quit, I totally would.

Change of subject. There's this guy that's interested in me. I don't really think I'm interested in him, though. We met at Kroger. He was my customer a few times and then I gave him my number because he said he wanted to talk to me. I seriously regret that now because honestly, I'm not really interested in starting anything with any new guys. While I'm not exactly happy with what I have, I'm more than happy with what we could become. And I'm just not ready to give that up yet.

Feeling kind of down, so I'm window shopping on the internet. I'm also broke, so maybe this isn't the best idea, seeing as how Charlotte Russe has several items I am lusting after. But whatever. I need something mindless to do so I won't dwell on the present state of things.

So yeah. Trying to think of something else to fill out this entry with, but that's pretty much all I came here for, to inform anyone who cares of my window shopping and self pity.

I love you, but you're hurting me. You've already gone away three (3) times since we've been together (that's three times in a little over a year), and you didn't take me with you. And I know you can't because of her, but it still hurts. A lot.

I'm trying to tell you that you're neglecting me. I deserve more. A lot more. More than just text messages and eating lunch and making out in your car and seeing you maybe once every two weeks, if I'm lucky. And the sex? Basically nonexistent these days. I give you everything, without holding back, and honestly, I know that I'm not getting all, or even most of you in return.

Stop telling me that you think the best thing for me to do is leave you and move on, find someone else. I don't want someone else. I want you. I want you to try harder, do what you have to do, prove that you love me as much as you say you do. Because I am tired of always being second best. When will I ever come first? After all, it's only fair. You love me, not her. Right? That's what you told me.

I don't know how you're going to make this up to me. I don't think you can, unless you decide to surprise me by saying, "I did it. I left her." I hate it that you're always there for her, no matter what she goes through, and yet I've had to deal with every one of my problems alone. You were never there, even though you should have been. Even though I hear you say that you love me and you care about me. I see no physical evidence of that.

You're not even here so I can say all these things to you. You're in Ohio, I don't know how many fucking miles away. You broke our plans for the weekend so you could go with her. And I know you had no other choice, but that doesn't do anything for the pain I'm feeling.

I'm tired of talking about this.

The past couple of days at work have been..... stressful, to say the least. And I know I talk about work a lot, but honestly, I really don't have much else going on in my life right now. So, since I am beyond stressed out, I have decided to compose a master list of things I hate about customers. Initially, I was going to take up several paragraphs to describe the specific incidents with customers that have happened most recently which have me so stressed out. But I really don't feel like doing that anymore. So instead, I'm doing this list.

WTF is wrong with you?! (this is the official title of my list)
I hate when a customer comes to my register and they believe something is ringing up the wrong price, and even after I do a price check and prove them wrong, they never apologize for wasting my and everyone else's time. May I suggest learning how to read?
I also hate when customers blatantly refuse to get out of my line, even after I've told them that I'm closed because it's time for me to go home. I mean, I'm sure anyone who has a job wants to leave on time, so why should I be treated any differently?
I cannot stand when, after hearing their total, a customer says something like, "Damn. That much? What did I buy?" Ok, you fucking idiot, everything in the store is clearly marked with a price, with the exception of maybe a few items. I know for a fact that some people come to Kroger and just throw things in their buggy without even attempting to estimate how much it might come out to be.
Along those same lines, I also hate when someone comes to my register with a shitload of stuff and they get it all on the belt and I get through half of it and they announce to me, "I don't have enough to get the rest of this." Now, for me to include this on my list may seem a little harsh, but I'm not just talking about one or two items. I've had customers who tell me that they're not getting an entire buggy full of shit. They knew how much money they had when they came into the store. And they give no consideration at all to the person who is going to have to put it all back.
When I used to stock shelves, I had a ridiculous number of people ask me, "Do you work here?" That used to piss me off more than I can say. Not only am I always wearing my standard issue red Kroger shirt and name tag, but also, if I didn't work at Kroger, why the hell would I be arranging merchandise on a shelf at the store? People, please use your brain, if you even have one.


In conclusion, the majority of the people who shop at Kroger are idiots. Whoever coined the phrase, "The customer is always right" has obviously never worked in a customer service field.
