Seven Quick Takes Friday: It’s the Final Countdown Edition

1) Current mood:

2) This is your weekly reminder that you now live in a dystopian hellscape. I love being stuck in a shithole country.

3) Thought for the Week: For only being six days long, this is the longest decade of my life.

4) Just a quick heads up: Next week I’ll be at BotCon so both the Weekly Reader and Seven Quick Takes Friday will be on hiatus next Thursday and Friday, respectively. However, they will be back the following week so look for both of them then. Caturday and Sunday Morning Nostalgia Crush won’t be affected, so they’ll be posted as normal. But there will be BotCon updates throughout the weekend, so stay tuned for those!

5) Wednesday we had the CEO walking our store. Things went well enough, but management was acting as if we were going to be taken out back and shot if anything went wrong. I had to deal with that exact same mindset while working at Walmart and it drove me crazy then. Apparently, it still does; I’m afraid one of these days I’ll snap and start telling people to chill out about it. It’s really nothing to stress about.

6) I had to go to Walmart on Thursday night and damn, am I ever glad that I am out of that hell hole. None of the motorized carts were charged or working, the shelves were empty, there were no regular registers open, and one of the items I tried to purchase had no UPC, so I couldn’t buy it. The store was in disarray and the only associates working were picking orders for on-line purchases. As always, Walmart is hiring and they’ll start you at $15.00 an hour, unless you’re a cashier. Then you make a dollar less. But hey! Work hard enough and you can watch your boss buy a fucking football team! Won’t that make you proud?! I fucking hate Walmart.

7) Thursday afternoon, I spotted Kim on the exit door. She absolutely detests the exit; when she’s on the entrance side, she will not switch with anyone. If she ends up on the exit, she whines and complains about how busy it is and it’s not fair that she’s there by herself. When I was sent to the door, I didn’t care. I rarely asked her to switch and I stayed on the exit side. But now the supervisors are sending other people and Kim can’t throw her weight around like she has been for the past few months. I give this about another week before Kim decides to throw a tantrum and go crying to management. Oh well. Go right ahead, you whining little hose beast. Let them deal with her. No skin off my ass.

On that note, we’ll stop for now. But I’ll be back in a fortnight with another update on my so-called life. Until then, have a great weekend and I’ll see you at BotCon!

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
