Thread: My True Calling

    Turn of events...

    The GM decided to stay (he said the other job required too much travel - I think he was just trying to get more money.) but it scared the owners into having someone else trained and I will be a part time day manager. I negotiated 20.00 an hour plus I get to keep my bar shifts - 20.00 an hour plus tips. I think this is a better fit for me because I talked to Mr A on the way to work and he confessed that he didn't want me working full time outside the house. Plus, I like working the bar. It would kill my soul to be stuck sitting at the desk all day doing boring paperwork. I'll still have to do a little paperwork but not more than 30 minutes worth and that's about my attention span for that kind of thing.

    That's so awesome! Congratulations on the promotion!!!
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Thank you. I wouldn't call it much of a promotion, lol. I'm just a bartender with keys and I only work 3 or 4 days a week. Once Uncle Sam gets his cut it won't be that much money but this is how I feel right now.

    I think I just found the funniest listing on Poshmark. Size SEXY and the creepy doll parts, lol!!!

    Vintage Acid Wash Going Out Jeans Size SEXY

    Vintage Anchor Blue jeans.
    How many times have you wished your butt was longer? Tchhh...shhh! No, don’t talk.
    These jeans can offer you that and so much more!
    The rise on these is an impressive 13 1/2” (dayyyumm!).
    If your waist is 32” (or 36” if you’re brave) and the area from your crouch to your ankle monitor holder is approximately 30”, these may be the jeans for you!
    Women’s? Men’s? I couldn’t call it.

    These are truly a piece of.....history.
    HEY, if you have any questions, ask!

    On the other hand, doll parts are kind of trendy in the craft world. I don’t think I will go that direction. My brother used to bite the toes off all my dolls and pull their eyelashes out, and it’s part of the past I choose to let remain in the past.

    Dreading work today...

    I got called a racist at work last week and today's the customer's day to come in. Backstory, there's a black man who comes in every Monday afternoon in the middle of the day and I chat with him every week. I actually thought he was really cool and enjoyed his company. Before Christmas, he found out that I collect toys for sick kids for Christmas and he brought in a huge bag of really nice things for me to take to the children's hospital so I went around the bar and gave him a hug. I guess he took that as a come on and asked me out - he knows I'm married, btw. I thanked him and reminded him I'm married but he's only gotten more aggressive. I was off over Christmas and he brought in a bunch of gifts for me and last Monday was the first time I saw him. I thanked him for the lovely gifts and sweet card and he started telling how much he loves me. I reminded him that I'm married and he decided that I won't date him because I'm racist. I told him that since I'm a racist it should be pretty easy for him to get over his crush on me but he says he can't forget about my hug. o_O To top it off, he's married too!!! He showed me a photo of his wife and I'm pretty sure she could kick my ass. I hate it when people try to bully me. Now, I'm trying to think of something mean to do to him.

    Also, the cooks have decided that it's funny to see me get mad at the waitress and have taken to stirring the pot. The lazy ass waitress keeps stealing my garbage can rather than get one and put a bag in it herself. She also steals my cut fruit and towels. Yesterday, I went to the office to get my till and when I came through the kitchen they were all grinning and told me she went behind the bar and took my can. The bitch happened to walk in the kitchen and I told her to bring my $#@! back and if she touched it again, I'd cut off her $#@!ing hand. The cooks started laughing. Apparently, she steals their cans when she can't sneak by me but they can't get away with talking to her like that because they're guys and she whines that they're bullying her. I just don't get it. It takes less time to put a bag in a garbage can than it does to go behind the bar to steal one. She literally walks right by the empty cans and bags to get to the bar. o_O What the $#@! is wrong with people?

    Nothing. Everybody is simply trying to find out how much $#@! they can get away with. Think of it as a sport.

    You should keep your distance from that customer and hope he doesn't decide to pursue sexual assault charges for the uninvited hug.
