*Annoyed Version of The Infamous Lane Pout*  
Ever had one of those days (or weeks) where you want nothing more than to burn your  place of employment down with no possible witnesses just for the satisfaction of doing it and then gack Hermione Granger's Time-Turner, go back in time to the day you put in your app. at your current job and go get a job at some place like LUSH, instead?

Yeah, me too.

Stupid retail job...

I used to work in a bookstore so I'd never burn it down. But there were a few other employees I would've gladly burned/punched/slapped/kicked/hurt in various ways and felt very little remorse.


Hang in there, things will get better.

Oh, to actually work in a book store. My jealousy knows no bounds. I've always wanted to work in one, but there was never enough money in it. That said, I can totally see why you wouldn't want to destroy it.

They will, but it's just hard to tell yourself that when the store is making you crazy. *hugs back*

Boy, have I been there... *huge hugs* Times when you wish you could be like Milton from Office Space. O_o Take the money and burn down the building.

*happily takes the hugs* The sad thing? I only had a three-day vacation two weeks ago and now I'm in desperate need of another.

Let's see: I once worked for an HMO that fired me when they found out I had a silent heart attack, then called me the next week wondering what happened to the projects I'd been working on.

I once had a CEO of a travel company argue with me about kerning pairs between letters in an ad I was both writing and designing, then looked startled when I got up, handed him the mouse, and said "If you can do so much better, be my guest!" . . . and walked out.

When the first color Macintoshes came out, do you think the first one in the ad department went to the guy who designing all the Point of Purchase ads? Of course not! It went to the Department head, who did nothing but e-mail and read text, and -never- used color.

So: yes, there are times I wish the heat vision worked better . . .

*looks up at the list*

Wow. That's a lot of bad jobs, love.

Really bad jobs.

I get the feeling that I should hush now. :D

And, one thing? Why are companies surprised if you take your work with you when you leave? I mean, really... *rolls eyes*

I love the way you can always put things into perspective, Christy. *dies* And I guess you really do have a point there. :D

*poke* Don't be a goof! *tacklehugs* You missed a couple of entries that say I have no life lately.

Seriously, I only get out of my own LJ a few days a week and I've been a rotten person for not commenting so much. I'll try to do better. *snugles*

Yeah, I had a day like that. I had a customer call for a number and it wasn't listed, likely because the owner of the place used some other company to do business with. So she says. "I don't understand why you don't have it. I'm looking in the phone book and the numbers right here. "

My thought to that, because I have to be nice is, Why the Bloody..H do you need to call me when you have the GD number in front of you..ARGGGGG

Anyway I like your idea when do you want to do that??? hahah

Yeah, I get the feeling that the entire population of this country is just getting dumber and dumber. Unfortunately, I see more proof of that every day. *headdesk*

*grins* How about next Wednesday? ;)
