Bummed and hurt...

Ok, so yesterday I tried to change my availability at work to 7pm instead of 9pm because I really don't like coming home that late.  It throws off your whole schedule, you know...you eat later, and are hyper so you can't sleep right away, especially if you need to go in early the next day.  Also, I'm developing night blindness when I drive...seriously...it's a frightening experience for me to drive at night because all the lights blur into eachother....

Anywho, so I went in and turned in the request form...15 minutes later I was called to the office and the store manager...the head honcho...was there and told me that if I was serious about it, then she'd have to let me go...ok, I get that...I'm a new associate and need to be more flexible...but then she went on to say that my availability was overlooked somehow and that had she known that I was only willing to work until 9pm, that she would never have hired me in the first place...wow...so, basically I was hired by accident and the only reason why they're keeping me there is because they really need cashiers to get through the holidays.  I just feel so wretched and worthless right now....

Also, today was incredibly hectic, as it's friday and most people got paid, and I was constantly putting in action codes to get money and other things...9 times out of 10 a CSM never came...so I was giving people change in ones...like one person I had to give them $17 in ones!  I don't know if they were ignoring me on purpose or if they were all just extremely busy...which most of the time they didn't look like they were...but I felt so alone and ignored all freakin day long...and both my breaks and lunch were off...  I went to both breaks about 15 minutes late and went to lunch 25 minutes late...I'm starting to hate this place more and more by the day.

Anywho...rant over....

Walmart...

Got a permanent job at Walmart as a cashier...I was really hopeful at first because I love Walmart...then I realised that I only love SHOPPING at Walmart. lol Not being confined to the building for 8 hours.  Actually, I really don't even like shopping there anymore.  They closed down our little one in the town I live in and opened this new superstore a few miles down the road.  I really miss my little Walmart...it was nice not having to fight for parking or anything just to get a skein of yarn and a gallon of milk, you know.  It was small and cozy and just the right size.  I mean, it's nice to be able to get groceries and clothes in one place, but it just isn't fun anymore to roam the aisles...maybe I'm just weird...plus, I really don't get many groceries there anyway...I go to Winco a couple blocks away, which is specifically for groceries, is much cheaper, and has a wider variety of stuff.  Anywho...just ranting...and figured I'd post something, as I haven't in over a month...
