where is my mind


My new store is weird. For one thing, the money drawer is in a different spot than usual. It's over to the side, instead of being right in front of me. The self-checkout terminals are also quite strange. So much different than the ones at my previous store, they're also slow and lag a lot.

For about the first 2 hours, I wasn't given an operator number to log onto the register, so I had to keep calling over the supervisor to help me.

I still haven't really met anyone. Some people came up to me and asked me if I was here temporarily, so I guess they didn't care at first to meet me, but once I told them I had transferred, they became a bit more interested in my story. It seems like the younger crew starts later during the day, so maybe as the days go on I can actually talk to somebody and make a new friend! Ahhh. I just want people to like me. I used to be the head honcho at my other store, and now, I feel so belittled here.

When I was walking out of the building to go home, this guy yelled out in the parking lot, "Hi new Jewel-Osco employee!""What's up?" I had no idea who he was, and how he knew that I was new there, but hahaha it made me laugh.

Anyway, today is John and I's official 2 year anniversary. We like to think that we really started dating on New Years Day, but he asked me to be his girlfriend on March 9, 2008, so we go by that. Luckily, I don't get out too late tonight, so we can make dinner and watch Reaper.
