My Fourteenth Day

Although I have big news, I'm going to go through the day first.

I started at 5 pm and went until 9 pm.

It's a very good thing that my cold took it's second day recession. It often does this to get my hopes up, but comes back en fuerzo the third or fourth day after the first signs. I'll let you know if it was only allergies from yesterday. I am allergic to cats and I have 3.

I've found out they really treat me poorly compared to the others because I'm young and male. The other kid who has been working here for a long time gets treated the same. Here's a little diagram of who gets treated the worst to best, excluding managers:

Young black male
Young white male
Old foreign male
Old black male
Old white male
Young foreign female
Old black female
Old white female
Young black female
Young white female

There are no young foreign males, so I excluded that group. Heaven knows how that list is going to affect the search engines. I just hope it helps people like my friend from Australia who wanted to know how fast food is changing women's "rolls." See comments from yesterday.

So that girl from a while ago was back, tonight. When she was leaving, I saw her in her civilian clothing, and I have to say: yikes. She really isn't my type. I was completely wrong. Anyway, and I feel like that guy in Starved, she's fatter than me. I know I shouldn't use that as a qualifier, as that would exclude most girls my age, but it just seemed apparent. Oh, and her shirt said "Single and loving it." I thought, good for her.

I've noticed that the sound of grills warning that they're about to open is very similar to the opening of "Nothing To Show" by Supertramp, thus making that song just repeat over and over in my head. The ice cream machine reminded me of another song, but I forgot what it was.

Okay, you probably want to hear the big news: I got my first paycheck!!!

Normally, I wouldn't be excited about such a thing, and this is no different. In fact, I'm even less excited since they only paid me $75.

I saw that, and I sort of laughed on the inside. I actually laughed on the outside, too. I've worked here 14 days, and they give me $75. They're damn lucky that I don't work there for the money. (I just love my job) So I asked the manager how many days it was for.

"28th to the 30th; 2 days. Wait, no, 3 days."
"Yeah... I've worked here for 14 days."
"The rest will be on the next paycheck, which will be on Monday."
"Okay, thanks."

When I had time to think about it, I realized that I started on the 15th. I got 2 hours for the orientation on Sunday, 3 hours for Wednesday (the 18th, which I know because I wrote my first entry about it the next day), and all the days after that. The hours say 24.67

It's impossible that I worked that much in 3 days. Maybe that is my first couple weeks and they just wrote it incorrectly.

Either way, I have no idea what I'm going to do with this huge increase in my income. Maybe I could buy that boat I've always dreamed about, or maybe start a grant.

I think I'm going to cry.

12:12 AM, August 16, 2005

In college, my sister was employed by HARDEE's. On her first night there during the graveyard shift, she ate one french fry. She was fired 5 minutes later. There were no customers in the place. It was 3 AM and she was fired for dipping her paws in the fry bucket and eating one cuz she was hungry. I have never worked in fast food. But in college, I worked out at Mount Rushmore South Dakota. I had to dress up as a cow girl every single day. I am not a cow girl. I had to say gay things like "Howdy" and "Y'all come back" was the gayest thing ever. I lasted less than 2 months. Hang in there!!! And keep writing about it. We feel your pain. inky    

12:32 AM, August 16, 2005

Thanks for your comments, inky. Everyone eats the food at my place. They take whole sandwiches. I'm always amazed because they see what's put into it. I guess it's not so bad if it's their disgusting hands that made it. During the day, the managers are assholes, so they sneak it. Whenever they do, I just fill up with pity, because they're like pack-rats or squirrels.

Thankfully, this will only last about 2 months for me, too. Just yesterday, a nicer supervisor lady asked me when I was going to uni. I told her September 16. I neglected to tell her I'm off to Peru in two weeks. I wonder how they'll take it.    

3:13 PM, August 16, 2005

This is a question about your first entry...There are new SATs? Who'd a thunk? (no I havn't read all of them in one day, who do you think I am, some kind of giant nerd? I'll have you know I'm not, sir)

I've never had any desire to work in fast food, only to eat it, but it only seems a little worse than retail. I've always had a little fantacy about working in a Factory, though....Maybe some day if I play my cards right.    

3:31 PM, August 16, 2005

Yeah, the new SATs are out of 2400, I believe. They added a writing part which is replacing the writing subject test (not to toot my own horn, but I got a 680 on it) and I think your score is directly affected by your income level. That might make my coworkers geniuses.

I haven't worked in retail, but I can guarantee that it isn't as disgusting or hazardous as working at a fast food place. In case you haven't read any of the reasons why you shouldn't eat fast food, consider that there's a very high chance, depending on the time you eat there, that your burger will be laced with cleaning acid.    

3:49 PM, August 16, 2005

Burger?!?! Who said anything about burgers? Haha! I just widely narrowed down where you work, my friend...

I am going to toot my own horn, I got a 1540 on the Ol' SATs...that's how come I caught'cha on the burger slip. Aha!    

6:42 PM, August 16, 2005

1540 is pretty sweet. The most I can counter with is a 700 in world history.

The saddest part is how all those numbers mean nothing now. They got me into school, but from here on out, intelligence isn't an issue.    

1:36 AM, August 17, 2005

"...her shirt said "Single and loving it." I thought, good for her." hahaha! Sorry your first paycheck was so meager, I hear you on that. It'll get better. Hang in there:) p.s. I don't think I'd go as far as hire a lawyer for sexual harrassment. That reminds me of those 1980's commercials. "This is sexual harrassment, and I DON'T have to take it". I'm just going to swallow it for now. I couldn't even afford a lawyer anyway. I'm too broke for that.    

9:47 AM, August 17, 2005

Was anyone else shown a video about sexual harrassment in school that involved a fat guy in sweat pants getting pantsed on a bus? So funny.    

12:31 PM, August 17, 2005

I must have missed those commercials. It was just something to think about. I have idea #2: Go along with it, as in fight fire with fire. If he ever does something like that again, laugh, and playfully kick him in the balls. That's a surefire way to get any man not to repeat any behavior. It's the reason I don't play soccer.

So, I am still sick. My cat is sick, too, so we sit together sniffling and watching M*A*S*H. I don't work again until Friday, but I might make a post later today or tomorrow about working for my ex-employer. He's still trying to mock-sell the car.    

10:54 PM, August 17, 2005

So I'm guessing that your foray into the fast paced business of the fast food industry is solidifying your dreams of going to college and getting a job that will allow you have a lifestyle to which you would like to become accustomed???

Keep up the hard work my young friend. It will pay off eventually!! :-)    

11:32 PM, August 17, 2005

My dad keeps saying that, too, but my response always is: "I already knew all that. Can I stop working there yet?"
