WARNING: RANT AHEAD!
When I accepted this job in January, there were three sales guys.
One quit in March, just before I started. The second was fired in May. And now the third is leaving us in a month because he found a better job. I’m sensing a theme here.
Thus we have NO SALES PEOPLE.
On top of that, my co-worker who brought me to this job (and the 37+ mile move) is no longer giving me rides after work next month. Meaning, I either cab it to the closest bus stop (5km/3miles) or walk/bike it (in which case I’m miserable during rain and boned when it snows). I’m not cabbing it home every day ($30) and I’m not getting a car just to stop using it in two months when the office moves. I got bills and a student loan to deal with, I do NOT have the money for a car and everything else it requires.
On one hand, I don’t have to worry about sales. It doesn’t affect me at all. My job is still my own. On the other, I now have an hr and half commute after work to look forward to (bus after work doesn’t go by until an hour after work ends).
I really have to keep in mind that the office will be moving. A LOT of my issues will be avoided if we move into town.
I NEED this office to move.
Why? Because I love my job. I. LOVE. MY. JOB. I don’t want to look for other jobs. I don’t wanna work for anyone else. I can deal with all the other quirks and blunders that come if I can just get to and fro work without resorting to a $100 cab bill per week. Continue reading
Earlier, I was whining about the one week wait for my AC and that it was arriving midweek, the peak of the heat wave. Well, someone was itching to show their skills.
I checked tracking this morning at 7am, Canada Post was now saying they would be delivering this today! The Summer gods must have clued in, because they also pushed forward the peak day to, yeah, today. It’s roasting outside at 35C.
And no, the delivery truck hasn’t gotten here yet.
It’s on the way!!!
Oh this sucks. This really sucks.
Y’know how I said I had ordered an A/C and that I was hoping it would arrive today or tomorrow. Apparently, I had read “One Day Shipping” incorrectly.
ETA Aug 13th
What it MEANT was “leaves the warehouse in one day, but takes a week to arrive.”
Note that 30 Celsius = 86 Farenheit.
Clearly, the weather is just making the most of my pre-AC days.
Alright, so the last few weeks: hectic, active, and possibly killing me in slow degrees on account of it being summer in Abbotsford (Why is it hitting 30C/86F degrees when this isn’t even Montreal or Malaysia???). Continue reading
This relationship has been two years in the making. The octopus came home with me (and the stickers from Meg Lyman) in 2012. The shark, Bruce, joined our happy household two weeks ago. I just rediscovered the stickers today.
Apparently, fate likes long-term games. I can relate.
I’m a sucker for plushies, so I’m not surprised that when I walked into a science-themed store, I came away with a toy shark. What I do find surprising is how long I’ve taken to get said shark.
Look at those teeth!
Once I get home, I’m introducing Bruce to Octavious.
