Remember how in my last journal I mentioned that I had mixed feelings about the upcoming week with the assistant manager going way, well that Wednesday (July 15th) all my mixed feelings went out the window, it was a goddamn disaster!

My manager came into work and started barking order while we were all wrapped up doing other things. So we all began doing what she told us to do but then we got a rush so we stopped and began serving customers. During this rush my manager barks to me, “The tables are filthy.” Honestly, we have a line up of 10 people, what the fuck was I suppose to do about it? She was the one doing nothing!

And if that doesn’t seem like her being psycho, this will. After the rush, I mopped the floor as I was told to do by her. A customer came in and the assistant manager served them. When the assistant manager went back to refill Parmesan cheese, she slipped and fell. This is the best part, the manager blamed me! Her exact words were, “She won’t have fell if she wasn’t rushing back to fill the parmesan cheese you should have fill!” And she did this in front of customers. I am only one fucking person and she expects me to be five!
The assistant manager told me directly that it wasn’t my fault, it was an accident and accidents happen. Even the other girl that was one with us (I hate her by the way) told me the manager was way out of line.

That day I did my dishes and left. The tomatoes I started cutting when she began barking orders were still sitting on the counter because I wasn’t going to stay one more minute if she was going to be such a bitch!

And after all of this happened on Wednesday, she had the gull to text me Sunday and asked me to work Monday and Tuesday because the-girl-I-hate was off sick with a doctor’s note. I was so close to telling her to go fuck herself but I told her I could work Monday and made an elaborate excuse for Tuesday (which was needed because I had no way to get to work that day and I didn’t want a ride from her equally unstable, apparently abusive husband). So needless to say I only had Sunday and Tuesday off...I had not having two days in a row off.

Yeah, so the last few days have sucked because my manager is crazy! This is what I deal with one a weekly/monthly basis. This is just a snapshot of a week.

On a lighter note, my Totoro and Jiji arrived and I was so happy. I’m positive my squeal cracked a few windows. The Totoro was so much bigger than I expected and uber cuddly. And Jiji is a little smaller but he is so cute and his fur is the softest thing ever! I was over the moon!

I have mixed feelings about this coming week and I am not sure how to feel about it.

To start off, I am super excited because my order from Hot Topic is suppose to be coming Tuesday. This is the first time I have ordered anything online and I got a great deal on shipping. I ordered a 9” grey plush Totoro (which will compliment my 6” blue Totoro) and a plush Jiji from Kiki’s Delivery Service. I am going to be so happy when they finally arrive. They are in Toronto currently so it won’t be much longer.

I am nervous because one of my co-workers is starting her vacation Wednesday. She’s my friend and she stops me from flipping my lid of this other girl that works with us. She is also the assistant manager and with her gone, my manager will probably turn into a super-tyrant once more. I am very worried about that. I don’t know how I’m going to survive without her for two weeks.

I also have mixed feelings about other things that are going on at work. We got a new employee (who used to work for my manager) and at first, she seemed really nice but I’m starting to think she is a shit disturber and is going to be a huge problem.

Secondly, our second night person “quit” all-of-a-sudden which forced all of us to work extra hours and days. I really hate having to work 9 hour shifts and when I say 9 hours, I mean 9 hours (we don’t get breaks at work). Our other night person is going on paternity leave soon too. We hire a new person for nights but that leads to another subway scandal.

You have no idea what I have had to deal with the last month. Everything that has been going on has been pure hell. All I can say is when The Eagles wrote Hotel California, they were writing about Subway. “...You can check-out any time you like, but you can never leave!”

I am hoping to get back on track with “Rebellion of the Commons” soon too. The break from the comic is what I really needed. I might ever update every other week instead of every week, just to keep my sanity.

Excuse me, but do you have a Skype I could contact you on? I'm planning on leaving dA for good, but I don't want to lose you as an RP partner.
