I'm gonna sound like a pretentious introvert. But this job is shrinking my social battery immensely. Normally I get more irritable around 7 hours of my 8 hour shift (or when I need to leave, lol). But I really wanted to leave after half an hour. Didn't help that I had the irritating customers first thing. And I'm considering a new job, but I've recently been promoted to an assistant manager. Every one of my bosses are saying how they'll "support" me every step of the way. Yeah, yeah. They must've said that to the other two candidates. Plus there aren't any better jobs around my area besides food service and more retail. Anyway, this one woman accused me of charging her 3x for the same item. But what was weird is that I apparently charged her 3x at different times in the transaction, as shown by the receipt. And furniture items normally have the same code, so she must've gotten confused. But I had no choice but to have the supervisor refund the money. Sucks when you know you're right but you have no way to prove it. Which makes you look like you're in the wrong. Eh, whatever. I should just get the fuck over it but I needed to rant.
*sigh* So a closer called off, and for some reason, everyone in the town decided to flood the store. And the other closer wouldn't fucking cooperate until the supervisor and I yelled at him to cash out people. I didn't even get a break for four hours. So out of pettiness, I took a 50 minute lunch instead of a 30. That definitely wasn't the right thing to do, but I was beyond infuriated. And I may have put in a veiled threat if I didn't take that long lunch. Yes, that wasn't my shining moment. But I made it up by not taking my last scheduled break. It all balanced out. If the HR manager gives me a strike for that, then I don't fucking care. At least the supervisor wrote up the dumbass closer multiple times. If nothing comes of that, then I will be pissed.
Discount FF's voice and impressions are pretty good. But I don't think Joji would be OK with someone else copying his old content. Only if Joji gave him the green light to do this (which I doubt). It'll probably become more of an issue if this guy's making money off of this. Besides, not everything needs a sequel.
Being interested in true crime (or anything vaguely macabre) doesn't make you "unique" or "weird." Everyone has at least some interest in the strange. It's only when you become truly obsessed that it becomes a real problem.
I'm a pretentious person both online and offline. And I always liked the idea of people putting up pretenses for various reasons (self-preservation, to hide their inferiority, etc.) It makes me intrigued on what they're really hiding underneath. Hence the endless psychoanalyzing Yeah, that's my .👁️ .✮。• *profound°。 ☆°。👁️ reason for choosing this username.
Tomorrow's my first day back to work. I wasn't sure whether to post this in General, but fuck it. It was shifting around in my mind. So I should just write this down before I go crazy from it. So some quick background: My mom also works in the same shop as me (but a different department). She knows everyone in my division and is even good friends with some of them. And she said not one person in my division asked how I was doing after my eye surgery. Rationally speaking, I didn't tell everyone there about my surgery. But the people who I did tell never asked. They only asked when I arrived at the store two days ago to drop off my restriction note. Eh. I don't know if I should casually bring this up or just let this one go. I guess the moment you stop being useful, you become an inconvenience. But that seems to be a truth in other workplaces. Perhaps I'm taking this too personally. Or my coworkers resented me for missing two important sale days. Or I'm just a covert narcissist and I don't even know it.
Presentation just wrapped up. The professor critiqued each and every one of our slides, but he said we did a good job overall. He just ripped into our presentation so that the other groups would learn from us and do better. And the project only had to last 30 minutes, not an hour. Thank God for that. Update: Aced it
At this point, Kenna's like a fish flying into the fucking sun. The girl is flailing. Like everyone said, it's clear that the criticism has affected her and her channel. She pumps out bland, mediocre content on Japan and fast fashion because those are the safest bets for her. (And by safest, I mean what requires the least amount of effort.) But everyone's getting bored of that. The numbers don't lie. This culture vulture really thought moving to Japan would inject new life into her channel. It just shows how much she's struggling. But her pastry-puff ego is stopping her from holding herself accountable. She's making the right move asking her followers for video ideas. But it won't matter if she has no motivation or diligence to follow through.
Group presentation in t-minus 12 hours. And lo and behold, I don't want to do it. I thought it was going to be 30 minutes, but nope. It has to be a full hour.
To add to that, the whole project will be group graded. And I feel like I half-assed my share. I don't want to get anything lower than an A. But I did have eye surgery last week, so I couldn't work on it for long periods of time. They already know, but still. Maybe we should come to an agreement to only take tiny points off our final grade, so that the professor won't get suspicious of all us getting 100s. Oh, well. Guess I'll have to stretch out my parts as long as humanely possible.
