    Long weeks just suck. I like 40 normal and 6 hours of OT pay...but it just feels like you never leave the place. :bad:

    That said, it's now my short week, and even though I get 36 hours...the extra day off is soooooo worth it. :D :rolling:

    At the moment, I'm the only male bar staff at work surrounded by females! One of the other 2 guys got knocked out at the pub last week and the other has an infection in a rather embarrassing place, apparently can't sit down comfortably.

    Melbourne Cup Day next Tuesday though and as I expected I have to work all day (well almost) from 1pm until we close at about 10 or 10:30pm

    I am sorry to be whinging but this is the place for it.......arrrrrgh!! :mad:

    This sucks big time. I can not stand the thought of not seeing my wife or kids for 6 months. Six and a half. 194 days to be exact. I have only been here 2 days and it already seems like it has been 2 weeks since I saw them. I really do have a fine job but it is at times like this that I think they ask entirely too much of people!

    Man, I am SO looking forward to be done with college so I can finally get RID of that F****** job - it sucks!

    Thankfully, I haven't stopped school and decided to work as a computer tech. That would have been the most stupid decision of my entire life. The thought of being a comp tech till retirement... *shrugs* Stick a clip of bullets in my head, it'll be shorter and far less painful!

    Grrrrrr... two months to go before I can kiss this [censored because it otherwise would be a string of asterisks] job GOOD RIDDANCE. Worst thing is, I'm not even a week down in this two months and I already want to kill myself. :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Studying for Sociology is horrible. Way too many articles to read and no substantial lecture notes avaliable, not to mention that pages and pages about health inequalities makes for a boring read. Argh!!

    I am trying my very hardest to get sacked from this job. If I hand in my notice I'm forced to work a month longer, and I actually hate it so much I'm trying to get them to sack me for gross mis-conduct, which is the only instantly dismissable offence other than assault. And despite the fact that I'd *love* to punch my manager in the face, I'd rather get out and not go to jail afterwards :lol:

    Play crazy... mumble to yourself, roll your eyes, keep looking around suspiciously, pretend that you have a tick... along those lines. :nuts:

    I'd be amazed it they didn't offer you to leave in a few days. ;)

    Don't show up on your shift and don't call to say you can't come in.

    Failing that, Tal's suggestion of pulling out the lunatic act would work just fine.

    less than 15 hours till the deadline, and i still have 1 whole report plus the hard part of the first report to go, its taken me WAAAAY more than 15 hours just to get the easier parts of the first one done. Thus, i can fully predict that i am screwed. Also cant concentrate, thus why i am taking a break and would appear to be almost babbling. Maybe i should enact my plan of getting drunk and thus not caring what i write, that was i will at least get something submitted. I HATE UNI.

    I did that in high school. NOT a good idea. Think along the lines of my drunken rant about Rome: the series :D All the grammar correct and all the words correctly spelled, but when you read it the next day, you're: "WHAT THE --?!"

    Geeze....

    It's crunch time. I've got to do all the make up work for my economics class and then take the final exam. And I also have to do a massive paper for my other class...and everything is due Saturday morning! :eek: I'm not going to get very much sleep the next few days. :bad: :rolling:

    Telemarketers are a Pest!

    [​IMG] /rant/

    Why do telemarketers :grr: think I am registered in the national registry of companies? So I can have a phone number up there for them to call at all hours? :mad: No, guys and gals, it's because I am running a freelance business, not a telemarketer :nolike: spamming central!

    I think the last one took the hint when I told her I was perfectly happy with my cell phone since 1) it doesn't cost me any monthly fee, just a nominal annual "minimum use", and 2) the number isn't registered anywhere so only clients, family and friends know it (i.e., telemarketers :flaming: can only call me when I'm at home. HAH!;)).

    /end rant/

    That might do it but I have a better suggestion. Show up drunk, that should get you fired instantly. ;)

    I have to make a prognosis for the intended federal funds rate for the end of 2008 and I'm at a complete loss from where I'm supposed to find the proper statistics for the primary indicators. The information we got for this assignment is just so horribly lacking.

    OMFG last night was basically just an exercise in endurance! 8 hours dealing with 300+ adults and little kids for our Toy Raffle, then 550+ Teachers, parents and school students for a Year 10 Graduation dinner - this included having to help with food AND drink service then clearing of plates & cutlery, then another hour of rearranging furniture so the place didn't look like a freakin bomb zone. I don't think I've ever sweated so much in 1 shift before, and we had to try to cope with 2 staff who did as little as humanly possible and one poor bar girl who looked like a walking zombie because of the flu bug she's got which left maybe 6 staff who had to work well beyond their normal level just to try to keep up. And I was only supposed to be there for 5 hours in the first place :jawdrop:
    Ended up having about :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer: afterwards

    Yes! Yes! YES!!!

    I got a C+ in my economics class! While it's not a very good grade, it's high enough so I don't have to pay my work back for the $1700 the class costs.

    This quarter is looking good so far. I've got a electronics class on Monday, and a 'Research Methods' class on Saturday monday. I'm wondering what the point of this clas is. Probably just another one of those pointless classes that they make you take so they can collect more $$$. :bad: :rolling:
