Snow Owl

Yesterday was one of those days...

So, yeah, I haven't been posting as much as I could, much less as much as I used to. Things at work have been busy again lately, and by the time I get home I have other things I want to do (even if I don't) than type up what's going on. Yesterday, though, is going to be the exception. Yesterday I worked a day shift (10:30am to 6pm). It was also one of those days where nothing seemed to go right.

The first thing, although far from the worst, was that I was late clocking in by 9 minutes which is a huge deal for me because I'm normally half an hour or more early. The next thing, which is probably the biggest thing, is that it was truck day and the only two people who really knew what was supposed to be done kept getting pulled away to do other things. This, along with feisty customers and too many stupid questions and interruptions, put the manager into a really bad mood.

The truck load did finally get stocked, though, so it was time to do prep work. The problem at that point was that the only thing we could get out of the manager was "do whatever you want." Seeing as the manager had stopped doing all managerial functions and had instead gone back to just working on the make-line, I stepped in. I went into the freezer and made a mental list of items that were low and needed prepped. I then relayed that list to one of the other drivers before I had to make a delivery run myself. By the time I got back he had half the items already done and they were working on some items I had missed since I didn't have experience with prepping them before.

All in all, I would say that experience was pretty fun. What happened is everyone did what they knew needed done even without someone telling them what to do. We do still need a manager to fill in the details on things where we lack the experience or knowledge, though. I wouldn't mind doing things like that regularly, minus the headache on the manager that caused it.

A little more personal...

I'm sure some of you probably just want to know what's going on in my personal life (not). Well, nothing really.

I was supposed to have a boy over tonight but it seems that this boy can't keep out of trouble with his parents and had his cell phone taken away, so unless he gets in touch with me some other way then I don't see that happening. But whatever, I was reluctant about seeing him anyway, since I know he's going to want to get physical and right now, as much as I would want to, I'm uneasy about getting close to someone while I have this cold (The plus side of that, though, is that it's going away now. A few more days and I'll be as good as new, thankfully).

There haven't been any new guys lately (even the one above is a relatively old one). One of my co-workers says he has the "perfect" match for me, and another one has offered to hook me up with one of his wife's friends. Yet another of my co-workers may or may not be being more friendly to me than he was, but I honestly can't tell. I've even started to give up hope on the guy from Hastings. I mean, I still like him and any time I see him there's this raise in hopes, but I've stopped trying to seek him out only to end up just tormenting myself.

As for work, I've specifically told two people I'm gay (both of which said they had no idea, nor do they really care/mind that I am), one already knew previously from online, and two may or may not know from gossip. There are still several which, unless they've heard gossip from the others, don't know. Ya know, despite the fact that it doesn't make that big of a deal, I still feel more at ease around those that already know and worried around those that don't. If I don't really care about coming out and know it's not that big of a deal then why does it worry me... meh. *shrug*

There is also a big plan in the works, but I'd rather not spill it just yet. I want it to be a surprise if it does happen and not a mockery if it doesn't.

The Wonderful People I Work With

My manager discovered that one of the other drivers have been drinking her slim-fast. She said she wouldn't minded if they had asked her, but she had discovered who it was by watching him walk out of the freezer popping the top on one. Mmhmm... yes indeed. =X
