For someone who has as many guy friends as I do, apparently I know nothing about them.

Go ahead hate me. It's been awhile since I have last blogged. I am proud to confess that the reason is that I am now employed again. After spending a week laying across my couch watching daytime television wondering how much money I could make if I pimped out Brody.... I got a phone call. It was my manager from this gas station I previously worked at. I started back a week ago with a promotion.

Yes, I do know that being an Assistant Manager at a gas station is not the most desirable job on the planet. Well guess what.... You can kiss my ass because I took it. I started thinking about working in the office environment. I wore incredibly uncomfortable heels with no grip on a slick floor, I worked with the most stuck up snob who was cheating on both her husband and her boyfriend (no joke), and a boss that resembles Meryl Streep's character in The Devil Wears Prada. Screw that. I'm done working with people like that.

I am now back in an environment where the only office people we deal with are the customers who (even after a college education) can not pump gas. I now wear sneakers to work and a loose fitting smock that does not make me feel like I am being strangled to death.

All hail to Starbucks!!!

For those of you who do not know me very well, I pretty much rely on caffeine to get me through the day. Yes, I am aware that this is not healthy. For some reason, I hear that caffeine is bad for me on a regular basis.
I love my pot of coffee in the morning, my Java Monster in the mid afternoon, and I absolutely adore my sometimes daily trips to Starbucks.
Without these things I would not be moving around at all. I just sort of lay around like I have a hangover or something. So, before preaching to me on how unhealthy this stuff is for me.. Take into consideration on how I am without this stuff.
I found out a couple of weeks ago, that Starbucks is now giving you the option of adding energy powder to your drink. Whoever came up with this idea is a total genius and I love you! Because in addition to the extra shot of espresso, I can now totally tweek out with an additional energy powder that makes me bounce off the walls. :)
I tried it a couple of weeks ago at work (I miss work), and WOW.... I definitely got a lot of filing done that day!
It lasted almost all day long and I gave multi-tasking a whole new meaning. lol
So, if you are an avid coffee drinker like I am, try it.

Lacy Lou graduated!

Let the job hunt begin...

Now that the tequila is out of my system, I am now going to temp sites. It just felt wrong waking up this morning and not going to work. Kinda makes me feel like a dead beat. If ya'll have any tips feel free to share! I'm going to be going crazy by Monday with no job.

I decided to re-write this blog for today (some of you may notice). In the original I was pretty upset, so that there are no misinterpretations I am doing a re-write...

I lost my job today. This afternoon I was handed my paycheck and told that I was being let go. I have a good feeling I wasn't the only one considering I heard about some payroll checks that would be sent out through certified mail. I probably wasn't supposed to hear that but oh well.

I was pretty pissed off when I left (who wouldn't be). I had just got this job not too long ago so being back on the job hunt won't be fun. I have three prospects, so hopefully by Wednesday I will have a new one. Cross your fingers on that one.

In the original blog I posted today I said some pretty nasty things. As upset as I was I'm sure it is understandable. I have never been written up, fired, or laid off from any job I have ever had, so this was quite the shock for me. But after a few margaritas with Kayle I think I have mellowed out a little bit.

The one thing that I do not like about this situation is that I was never given a straight answer. I hate that. If you are getting rid of an employee you should be able to look them in the face and tell them exactly what is up. Instead of, "It came from the higher-ups." I'm sorry but that doesn't sound very professional. I think that's what really made me mad. More than losing my job. If it's for budget cuts then say so. If it is because I did something wrong, then say so. But, do not hand me my paycheck, sit me down, and just say "bye." I think every person deserves better than that. It sounds kinda shady to me. I have always been honest to employers and my coworkers. I think they should show me the same respect. I felt like Milton in that movie "Office Space." They just took him off the payroll and hoped the situation would take care of itself 'naturally'.

Oh well. Right now it is whatever.
