Yay! This lil' girl got herself a job!!

  1. Ok, I got a job on Friday. Now I'm hoping my mom will get off my back. But, I have this feeling that things are going to get worse. She's gonna try to tell me when to work, and that now that I have a job I can't do anything. Well, tough cookies for her. I'm almost 18 I'm gonna be making decisions for myself. Why not let me start now, and let me live MY life, make MY OWN mistakes. She is making the mistake of..........well....I'm done.....I don't feel like getting into it tonight.

    I just wanted to share my good news, and look at what it turned into! I hate every thing that is going on...I lost it this weekend. Said things I wouldn't normally say, did things I wouldn't normally do. I got really physical and agressive this weekend. I mean pounding on my poor boyfriend. He finally asked me what was going on and i just broke...

    Ok. I'm doing it again! I'm sorry! This is supposed to be good news. The crummy things in my life are getting the best of me.... Alright. I'm really done this time!!!!

    Night all!!

    Jenny, I'm almost falling asleep at my computer here. But I'll be home from training tomorrow at 12:30. I will be a cashiere at a small grocery store. It's called P & L. It's small but that's a good thing. I think I'm gonna like it.

    Congrats girl!! Tell us about it ... :hatparty::hatparty::hatparty:

    btw mom's probably just wanting to shelter you & is having a hard time adjusting to your age.

    I'm here if you want to chat about it.

    Kristi, I'm a night nurse so I'll be sound asleep at 12:30PM.

    You take care of yourself, girl, and I DO want to hear about how things are going with you, okay?

    Well, it went really good today. I only worked for 3 hours. 9-12 but it went really well. It is very easy. It only took like an hour to get the register figured out. I've already memorized some codes for the produce stuff. Bananas are 121, pears are 132.....

    It's fun, the people are really nice. And almost everyone that works there knows my grandparents and father or parents.....I'll never be able to hide from them!!! Ahhh....no jk..

    Kristi, This is a good starting job for you. being a cashiere wil definetly teach you how to deal with obnoxious customers. This will street you right when you become a nurse. Good luck and congratulations!!!!!!

    I've had experience working with people when I worked at the shop n' save. Some people were so nice, and others were jerks. Today went good, everyone that came through my line was very nice and they put up with my mess ups. I think smaller stores bring nicer people.
