I started my first (real) job yesterday. Woo, I work at a grocery store ^^;. Its not terrible, and it goes by pretty quickly, and I make money, so those are all good things ^^. But I need a nap right now, because standing on your feet for 5-8 hours straight is harder than it looks. At least my feet aren't numb, like yesterday ^_^. I'll get used to it, and take the grocery world by storm! Or something. Just joking. I'll stick with the writing/art stuffs instead, because at least those things don't feel like they're sucking my soul from my very being. Scanning corn and potatoes for long amounts of time will leave a large void in your heart, promise ^^.

Nap! *thudsnore, Jiroh style* Zzzzz...

There is no grocery store heaven, it's straight to grocery store hell for everyone, I'm sorry ^^;. I only know this week's schedule. But I don't work tomorrow (Thursday), yay ^^! I need to find out the rest of the week, I forgot ^^;.

Wow, how many people bought corn and potatoes today? O.o;; I bet you remember those numbers the fastest ne? XD As for standing I know how you feel... well I move around 'cause I have to put whatever into the blender, get ice from the ice machine, then back to the blender machine, to the cup sealing machine and back to the customer. ^^;; Lots of moving around so my feet aches a lot.

So! I have to sit down whenever I can or I'd be dead. x_x

Actually, I still don't remember corn, I just realized -.-. But billions of people bought it today, I swear o.O;. Potatos- 4728, cantalope- 4050, bananas- 4011, local newspaper- 820, Springfield newspaper- 821, ice- 3... *brain explodes*

I hardly get to move around at all. I just stoop a lot to unload the carts onto the check-out lane. I hardly move from the same 3-sq-foot radius for all the hours I work. Until my 15 minute break anyways, then I go collapse on a bench outside ^^;. No chaaairs, its a tragedy.

But you work so loooong, how do you survive o.O;;;? I must know your secret ^^.

Oh my. ^^;; And here I thought it was hard to memorize numbers but then again if a frillion people buy the same thing, you have no choice but to remember. ^^;

My breaks are never set. If there are no customers then it's like a long break. Breaks stop when a potential customer stands and stares at the menu; I have to get up and wait by the cash register until they order... or they smile and leave (that happens a lot). On really bad days, I don't get to eat until several hours after a meal time. ^^;; So so bad. How do I survive? I have to fill in the order quickly so I can rest. Usually if it's a simple order, I can get it done while they're getting money out. ^_^

You and your mad slushie making skillz ^____^. You have to take their order, swordfight them until they give you their money, give them a slushie, kill them, AND dance on their corpse? You have so much to do, I hope to one day be an awesome worker like you. *clang! clang!* ^^

People are weird sometimes... They place an order, don't pay me, leave, return, and ask where their order is. -_-;; *wishes she has a real sword*

You'll do fine M! ^_^

o.O;;;. *petpet* Here, take my sword. I prefer using a rifle anyway. *sends sword through e-weapon slot*
May. 27th, 2005 01:26 pm (UTC)
Graaaaaaahhhhhhh... I have to fill in AGAIN today!! *flails violently* Why is it that when crap happens to people always have an adverse effect on meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee? [/whine]
