In a perfect world The Seattle Mariners would sign Ken Griffey Jr and have an AMAZING Miracle Tampa Bay-like season.  The M's would win the World Series and Ken Griffey Jr would retire as a Seattle Mariner finally getting that long awaited Ring.

I Give Up! [08 Jun 2006|10:59pm]
I just can't win!! Okay--so a few weeks ago I posted how I procastinated getting gas and because of that the price went up like 5 cents per gallon or something like that....WELL today I decided to just go ahead and fill up at Fred Myers $3.11 a gallon--originally I was going to wait 'til tomorrow right before I drive to Puyallup-but no I didn't. THEN tonight after work I went to get some food at FM--AND GAS IS FREAKING $3.09! IT WENT DOWN TWO CENTS IN LIKE THE 8 HOURS SINCE I'D GOTTEN IT! :-( :-( The world hates me....haha it's just two cents per gallon I'll live

You Are Teal Green

You are a one of a kind, original person. There's no one even close to being like you.
Expressive and creative, you have a knack for making the impossible possible.
While you are a bit offbeat, you don't scare people away with your quirks.
Your warm personality nicely counteracts and strange habits you may have.

Duuuuuuuuuuude the Seahawks are a NUMBER ONE seed it's unbeleivable!!!

People's stupidity/rudness shocks me. At work this lady needed help with baseball gloves and seeing as I played fastpitch and someone was covering the register I offered to help her. So she had a first basemens mitt and I believe she asked me if it was an infielders glove so I was explaining to her that it was a firstbasemens mitt and and then she was like "Well is there someone that knows for sure and can help me" I was thinking "LADY I JUST TOLD YOU WHAT IT WAS!!!" haha oh man...but you know honestly I deal with worse people at Cheney Stadium and I find these customers amusing.

Wow...talk about a bad night. Luckily it turned out okay but I was stressed for about 10 minutes on two seperate occasions.
When my till was being reconciled I was missing a check so after looking all over the office and having no luck we went back out to the cashier area, I'm freaking out because not having a check is NOT a good thing!!!! We looked in the cash drawer I used...empty. Looked on the other side...empty. Then we looked in the other cashiers folder (where we file credit slips etc when were working cause the drawer gets too full). IT WAS THERE!! HAPPY TIMES!!!!!

So we go back in I'm telling the manager, Shelly, who was reconciling my till how happy I am! And she was like "Yeah me too, I really didn't want to write you up and missing a check would have been really bad, cash is one thing but a check..." So on we go to the credit slips--and I missing a Visa one I counted them like 5 different times and she counted them, still onlhy got 49. Then the other manager on duty (Justin) happened to come in the office and he looked through my other piles to make sure I didn't put them in the wrong pile when I seperated them then he left to go back on the sales floor. I got on my hands and knees and looked on the floor in the office. No luck...back to the cashier area, I'm about to cry at this time. No luck in the drawers Justin comes over to help again {:-)}so I look through Melissa's (other cashiers) folder and I get about half way through and there it was! I WAS SO HAPPY when I saw my ID number on that slip I just held it up and smiled and Justin was like "Did you find it" and I'm like "Yes!!!!!" He looked so happy for me :-D haha I wanted to hug everybody (esp one in particular lol jk). Then we go back in and we get to the returns and you guessed it I'm missing one (two actually) luckily I just miscounted those. And then I signed the papers and got out of the office before something else went wrong!

I can understand how the credit got in Melissa's folder because I was on that side to begin with so it probably got really busy and I just put the credit on the counter with the plan of filing it when the line went down and I probably never got around to filing it and then when she came and I switched sides the credit slip was probably still there so she thought it was hers and put it in her folder or when we were both on that side I may have accidently put it in her folder instead of mine.. But I don't get the check because I always put it in the drawer right after it goes through the machine! I mean obviously I didn't because it got in her folder but man.... Then to top my night off I forgot the coke I had just bought at the end of my shift on the counter. I guess Justin threw it away (because they couldn't put it back or it would screw up inventory) grrr I text messaged Melissa and told her to put it in the fridge in the break area so I could get it tommorow and I guess she told him to take it out of the trash we'll see if he actually did it. I also forgot next weeks schedule which is no big deal I can get another one tonight but it's still annoying. MAN it was a stressful night! Let's hope tonight I can keep all my credit slips and checks organized!

Well, shoot! [15 Dec 2005|10:43am]
Christmas is just over a week away and I have not done ANY Christmas shopping AT ALL. It just does not feel the same this year, like I don't believe Christmas is so near! I think it's cause I've been so busy. Speaking of busy, starting tommorow I work thru Thursday straight, no days off! Then I work Christmas Eve, but I get off at 1pm (supposidly) so if that stays the same I'm happy I got the early shift!!!!And luckily no more school so hopefully I can get shopping done before/after work.

I LOVE Tacoma BUT... [01 Dec 2005|05:16pm]
no really it seriously snows EVERYWHERE AROUND TACOMA BUT NOT IN TACOMA sure we got a few hours of snowflakes and a trace of snow--but look everywhere else..Puyallup, Fife, lywood, lakewoord, seattle and the list could go on and on...It will probably come tommorow while I'm working and by the time I get off all be gone--but the roads will be icy. Now they say the snow is moving North, welcome to Tacoma. heh

EDIT-You see what a little complaining can do? :-D

We were robbed (though not really robbed cause I think that involves violonce or attempted violence or yeah...) for a paint gun at work today. He played ALL of us. All being the two guys on sales and me--I don't think he talked to the manager on duty at all. I'll explain to those who want to know at some point in time--the rest of you that don't want to know well FINE! :-( haha jk. OH did I mention I wasn't even suppose to be working today!? Got called in again...I'm enjoying the job though but I REALLY REALLY REALLY WAS planning on doing HW. One of the managers bribed me with a soda which BTW she never bought me! She promised she will though. The new new manager is cute in his own way I can't really describe it but there is just something very attractive about him he's young too like he just turned 21 and he's VERY VERY VERY skinny--like seriously a twig. lol.

Why do people have to throw me off in my first five minutes at work? First customer yesterday just had to be from Oregon, stupid Oregonians and there no tax! Haha actually it was okay cause I figured out how to do it all by myself I just needed the manager to sign the form. Oh and of course I was asked to work today, I actually could have said no this time though, because it was one of the other cashiers (who I know from Foss) that asked me and then later the manager on duty asked me "So are you going to work for Melissa or no?" and it was in a way/voice that I really could have said no, but I still said yes and I'm trying to figure out why....lol

I had this really strange dream--I DROVE from here (Tacoma) to Ohio so I could catch a plane to Pennsylvania. Yes, in my dreams I obviously have problems...

Some losers came to see me at work today.
And I made Austin come in ahahahahahah--Dana (manager) was complaining cause one of the sales guys had to leave and she was like "No, you can't I'll get fired blah blah" lol half serious but of course joking about the fired part. Anyways, I was like "Call Austin" then she started telling about how he always says "No" when asked to come in and last time he was like "But don't forget me if you need someone else he said he wouldn't let me down (pause) What's his number!?" haha so I gave it to her and I think his mom answered then got him and she told him that he promised he wouldn't let her down lol, then he agreed to come in and she goes "YOU WILL THANKS! NOW I WON'T GET FIRED!!! Oh by the way Krista told me to call, Bye!" haha I was like "thanks, now he'll kill me!"

I was so scared my till would be off today! But it wasn't, wahoo! Actually it was over by 4 cents but that was no big deal and I actually do know when that happened. Some lady had 4 cents change and I really thought I gave it to her but she said something like "Did I donate that four cents" which confused but I was like "No, I gave it back did you want to?" Then she said "Oh, no I just don't know what I did with it" So oops...I guess she DID donate that four cents, my bad. THEN I was off by one debit card receipt but luckily I remember one was filed with a layaway purchase so I dodged that bullet and my till was good.

Oh and just kidding about the losers they were pretty cool :-)

Okay so there I was putting hats up at Big 5 and what do I see? BUT A LUKE RIDNOUR HAT!!!!!!! OMG I HAVE TO HAVE THAT HAT!! I HAVE TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ARGH but my discount doesn't kick in for another 15 days and sure I could get it without the discount but they really don't like it when employees do that (cause its better if there is a record of the sale approved by the manager (so we don't get accused of stealing) which there only is if the discount is used blah blah). ANYWAYS THERE IS ONLY ONE LEFT I NEED THAT HAT!! I'M GOING TO HIDE IT!! If somebody tries to buy it when I"m cashier I'll cry! Okay actually I'll live if I don't get it I'm just making a big deal because it's better then revising that stupid english paper I forgot about. The one i don't HAVE to revise but our teacher makes us feel guilty if we don't...I really do want the hat though...so back off people!

Supreme Court paper...I just want a few extra points to get that 82 up to an 86 or so--sad I know but work sucks--I know. haha actually work doesn't suck yet in fact i'm emjoying it kind of I feel more in like im getting to know the other emploees I'm not SUPER comfortable but there is hope==yes hoe there is WAHOO Wow I've lost it. Is this the strangest post I've ever posted? Oh and I felt so good because I was talking to Melissa, who I know from high school, then I found out she works at Big 5 and we both worked today at the same time and she said her till was off my like $20 one of the first few times she worked so I'm glad I'm really NOT the only one which I knew but it still makes you or me feel good to know know that==no really I'm done now but imgagine if I wrote my paper like this.
