Ya know what really irritates me? When people are screaming at me, over the phone, and asking me questions that I do NOT know the answer too. I wish I did, I really do but unfortunately, I do not. If I knew it, I would tell you! I wouldn’t keep it to myself just so you could bitch at me more then you already are.
If you know me well enough, you would know that when I get really frustrated with something… I cry. So, in the middle of listening to this person bitch me out because I could not answer the question they way they wanted to hear the answer (aka give them what they wanted), my eyes started tearing up and I was like ‘oh shit’ and had to put them on hold while I did a few deep breathes. At least after I did that and explained it, again, and then gave them to my manager, he apologized to me and told me that he hoped I had a great weekend and that he didn’t ruin the rest of the day for me. Uh yea, you kind of did.
Moral of that story: Do not bitch out customer service reps, we are humans just like you and we do not know all the answers and we really do want to make you happy. Or at least this one does.
I had to go to my parent’s house this weekend, this is what I see on my drive to and from there. What a fun filled Halloween eh?
I suppose I never told you the latest car drama, which lead up to why I had to go home this weekend. Two weeks after my exhaust system went out, I was on my way home from work and I was in the middle of rush hour traffic (bumper to bumper) when the stop lights in front of me turned red. I put on my brakes (not slammed them, just tried to stop) when the floor pedal went all the way to the ground and my car did -not- stop. I panicked but somehow, I remained calm enough to not freak out and die in a car accident. I finally got through the rush hour traffic and onto a quiet side street, parked the car and called a tow truck. I was then told the next day that my fuel pump also went out and the bill was $1130.00.
$1130.13 to be precise.
WHAT?! I just put $1000 into the piece of garbage. I wasn’t about to shell out another $1000. So my dad called me and told me he found me a new car. I had to decide on the spot. Literally, on the spot. It was 4:25pm, I was at work, and I know absolutely nothing about cars. This was a really hard decision. It was a gold colored 2006 Pontiac G6. It’s pretty.
I went home to sign the title and get insurance today. Next weekend I go home and sign the loan. That is not what I am looking forward to.
I am currently going onto week three of my new job already! Time is really flying and I get my first paycheck on Friday. That also makes me quite happy because it’s actually going to be for a decent amount of money, for once. The place that I work is really nice compared to my old job. Unfortunately, I cannot state where I work but it’s in an office setting which means that I am, once again, uniform free. It just seems more, I don’t even know how to put it, of my type of environment. The head boss seems to really care about the employees and making us happy, which is freaking awesome. Not that my old GM didn’t care, he did, but there was only so much he could do there to make his employees happy. Plus, I am not dead tired with sore feet or legs from standing all day like I was at my old job.
I don’t really have much to say other then that. I am waiting to start my savings back up so that I can start saving up for a new car. Oh, on the first day of work at my new job, guess what happened? My exhaust system went out. It literally fell off! I was so upset and I was late for my new job, and the damage was $1130. Yea.. that is a shitload of money. I cried, needless to say, but I got to drive a ’11 Sonata for 2 days and I did NOT want to give it back. Sigh. So, I need to start saving pennies so that I can get a newer car. I won’t be able to afford a 2011 car but anything newer then what i have now, is a new car to me. hahaha. I am also hoping that I will be able to move to a bigger apartment soon *crosses fingers* because the one I have now is itty bitty and I HATE it. I need more space!!
I really don’t have much to say other then that. My life is so exciting. Not.
I haven’t blogged in quite sometime but I figured it was time for me to share my exciting news.. I finally have a new job! I haven’t started it yet but the fact that I only have nine days (work days) left at my current job makes me quite happy. Though I will miss the people I work with a great deal. I have lived in this town for four and a half years, and I have met some great people where I work. The sad part is that I will probably never seen some of my closest coworkers ever again due to the fact that they don’t have a Facebook account or what not. I shared this fact with my favorite person at work and low and behold, his BROTHER works at my new job so I told him to call me at work haha. But he just told me that “you know where I work, come visit me” psh. Geez.

I just know that I need to start saving my money so I can do two things: 1) buy a new car and 2) go on vacation. I’m sure moving to a better apartment and buying a TV are also on my to do list somewhere but meh, I need a new car. My current one…well… I need to move on. Besides, I really want a Pontiac Vibe. They stopped making them so I can’t wait to long or it will be super old and yuck. Or maybe I want a Jetta.. either way, I want a new car.
Okay, that is all that I have to say for now.
Last week Tuesday, I was talking to my boss and he said how how he should train me to be a manager, etc. and I told him I wanted to be a manager. Well, he went and talked to his first assistant and they both agreed that I should be a manager and all they had to do was talk to the owner about it. I was 99.9% sure that I was going to be the next person promoted because it just made sense. I am out of school, I can work anytime they need me, I have been there for three and a half years and I work my ass off for them. At the review last week, I had the best marks out of all the employees.
All I needed was for them to tell me “you are promoted, congratulations!”.
I log into Facebook today and saw one of my coworkers, who is way younger then me and still in High School actually, change their facebook status to “How does Manager _____ sound?” Guess they decided to promote him instead of me.
I am so hurt and pissed off. I dont even want to go to work tomorrow. I feel like I work my ass off for nothing and get no appreciation. I even had to run the store during summer on Friday. Its like Im a manager without the freaking benefits/pay. Maybe its because I’m a girl. Seriously, 90% of the management team is male.
I need a new job.
