I wish I could play Game of Thrones:Ascent on my phone :(

Gonna be shutting this blog down. Putting in my two weeks today, then off to bigger and better things
When people think that just because they don’t need the ad, we’ll just put in any price they tell us, like we’re trained fucking monkeys. You don’t need the ad, because WE have them and can supply them. Don’t go threatening me with a phone call to corporate just because you don’t know the fucking policy
I'm always pleasantly surprised
when I’m put on a register with a working hand scanner. Half of the stuff there doesn’t work. Which is weird, since there’s so much money in that store, and we’ve pulled in over $1 million in profits, consistently over the last few years. Our hardware department still uses dial-up, for fuck’s sake.
The one thing
I really, really like about Walmart: The bonuses. Aw yeah
Okay, I’m sure absolutely none of you know this, but about a month or two ago the GM of my store was put on leave. Apparently she was being investigated by corporate about something, I’m not entirely sure what. While they were investigating, some of the other managers were put on leave too. Well, yesterday it turns out they fired our GM, and her co-manager was being demoted and...
at work this one lady said I should get an agent and try to get into acting. That’s totally something I should try to do.
Hiatus and one whole year
As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I’ve not been posting here regularly. Shock, I know. My life is just too thrilling to be able to devote time to this blog. Or at least, it was. I’m getting into a routine again, so that means (hopefully) more blog posts. We’ll see what happens. In the meantime, yesterday (Thursday, the second of February) marked my one year anniversary at...
Customers throwing a fit over some almonds.
When I say throwing a fit, I mean it. Here I am, checking out this one lady and she put all the price match items towards the end of the belt. She tells me that she has an ad for the grape jelly from CVS and I just ask to see it. I start flipping it around, and she asks, incredibly annoyed “What are you looking for?” I calmly reply (Because she hasn’t lost her shit yet) that I...
Have I got news for you! It was my last 20 minutes of work, and Kevin popped up behind me. Kevin is our newest CSM, he’s been a CSM since the beginning of this month. He asks me if I’d like a raise, and I say yes. He asks me if I’d like a promotion, and if I could have said “fuck yeah I do!” I would have, but some people got in my line and they had two kids with them....
I had the joy of working self checkout today. One of the self check registers, #43, has had some trouble with it’s debit card reader. Usually it’s not a problem, you just use the bag trick or, if it’s a bigger hassle, suspend the transaction and bring it over to the cashier stand. And normally, it’s not that big a deal. Anyway, I had just gotten back from break, and this...
God bless the crazy people at Walmart. They’re the reason I’ve started drinking.
This past Easter, I had the joy of having to go in to work. Of course, I got time and a half for this, so I wasn’t complaining. What I did not enjoy was being taken off register to do whatever the hell management wanted me to do. Like, doing the garbage for the entire store. That wasn’t fun. But again, I got time and half for it, so it was alright. Anyway, at some point in the day they...
Yesterday I was working the express lane. I enjoy working the express, it makes my day go by faster. Or at least it seems that way. Anyway, I had been there maybe 30 minutes when this Asian lady comes through. She’s not like most Asian customers, she’d actually talked to me, and didn’t give me any shit when I accidentally scanned one of her items twice and had to take it off by...
So I’m working one of the express lanes yesterday, and this African family comes up to my register. Not African as in “black,” but African in the sense of having immigrated. They have WIC purchases (which in my opinion, WIC is the worst of the foodstamp programs. It’s such a hassle.) so they put all their milk and cheese and cereal up at the front. They’ve got 4 half...
