Ancient, huh?

I should stop feeling guilty about eating free food. I ate a lot of shrimp. Then felt bad about it, because other people probably wanted some, too. I tried a smoked oyster. It was gross.

Yeah. PC products are pumped full of brain altering chemicals. Not that I mind. Their chocolate chip cookies are good.

Did you break a window? With your arm?

Why yes, I did break a solid plastic window with my weak brittle arm. The sore is all puffy and oozing now, and I got some bonus points from the managers by working my ass off while handicapped (especially since the other grocery guy didn't touch the pop during the FIVE HOURS I wasn't there afterwards... When there was a HUGE SALE on Pepsi and THIRTEEN pallets in the back) I rushing like Hell to clear some space in the backroom, so I was setting up end displays all over the store, dragging and dropping pallets wherever. I quickly then stocked a pallet of misc. Pespi cans and completely emptied it. I was dragging the empty pallet back to... the back, when the only ailse that lets me through was blocked by shopping carts and the elderly.

I pulled out the pallet-jack and shoved it into a random display, and carried the empty pallet by hand. I stuck my arm out to push the door open, but I apparently aimed for the window and BAM! Out it came along with a good amount of my blood and flesh.

You'd think it would end there, but it doesn't. I went to the meat storage because there's a first aid kit there. Turns out it was out of bandages, so off to produce! The first aid kit was COMPLETELY empty there. One last hope was fish, and they ACTUALLY had STUFF I could use. The bandages weren't staying in place, so I duct-taped it to my wrist and went about my duties.

I return to the backroom to see two of the managers waiting around with the broken window, and explained what happened. Nancy yelled at me to go wash my arm and get a proper bandage. A proper bandage costs $1.75 each.

Despite my gaping wound, I STILL worked my ass off and proved myself a ho-jillion times superior to the new guy. That made me happy.

Wow this is a big post, and my supper is very cold now. Ah well, I still have a microwave.

Hmm... That would explain the INSANE amount of Pepsi people were buying...
Sounds like your day was shit. I wouldn't have even thought it was possible for your arm to break a window without the help of a large heavy thing... Why'd Nancy yell at you? Because you hurt yourself doing your job? And that new guy sounds like an ass. I hope he gets crushed by a truck.

You know, some old lady was complaining that all of these boxes and crates were blocking off aisles. I told her they were probably restocking shelves, but NOOOOO. She couldn't accept that, because the shelves were almost empty. I told her, that's PROBABLY because they're being RESTOCKED. Since I was off, and she was my last customer, I left, while she was STILL complaining loudly to herself. Stupid old hag. Grr. But I didn't get injured. So you win.

Nancy yelled for emphasis, "it's not worth the risk of infection" or something like that. Yeah, i went through quite a few bickering old hags yesterday about the blocked ailses. For a while, we weren't allowed to drag pallets on Saturday because of those whiney bitches. But then the Pepsi truck came, along with a hearty "Fuck your rules!" and "CHRIST!! MY ARM!!"

Okay, well at least she wasn't yelling because you got hurt. That's just be stupid.

Angry old women are an unstoppable force. Like a hurricane, only louder. People should learn that. Then confine them to their homes and send the younger, less irritating people out to do shopping for them.
Bah! Let them complain! They just do it to remind themselves that they are indeed still alive. ... *growls*

The great thing about the elderly is, if you throw them off and yell out the names of various genetalia at them, they have strokes and die.

Hmm.... Thanks for the tip! ^^
Thought I get the feeling death is frowned upon by most of the Superstore managers...

Rob doesn't care ^o^ Rob's great that way. And Feschuck (who knows HOW the Hell to spell his name) is all giddy because he's gonna be a dad soon. And Nancy... Nancy hates the customers a lot, so, it WILL not be frowned upon at all! Oh no, it will be SMILED UPON!!! AHAHAHAAAA!!

But I think my supervisor actually LIKES people. Real people. I think it's wrong and twisted, but she does.

My day was quite boring. I talked to the snake. She wanted me to feed her, but I'm not allowed.

Feed her what? A visitor?
I can see why that might be frowned upon.

No......Not a vistor. A fish. From the aquarium. (Which is what we feed her.)

Wow, my computer is being disgustingly slow...
