It’s not that I’m slacking. It’s not that I’m lazy. It’s not that I’ve given up. I started a “real” grown up life. I am slowly transitioning from having loads free time, to nearly any at all. That is why this is my first post in almost a month. So I’m just going to blog about a few things here and there for today.
I have two new-ish jobs. One I think I have told you about, an automotive parts factory. The other, Jimmy John’s where I deliver freaky fast delicious sandwiches. Autometer is a lovely place. And overall, I don’t mind working there. Friendly people and easy work with overtime and benefits. The thing I hate is the tiring work and pain of lower back and feet. One thing I did want to talk about this though is one of my co-workers.
At first I thought he was just friendly like everyone else. (Let’s call him Tom for security reasons). Well, Tom is nice, but there was just a hint of a motive there. At first, every time he saw me he said “Hi, How are you?” And I mean every time. We cross paths approximately ten times a day. Then he asked when my breaks where so we could get a ‘chance to talk.’ That’s when the first light popped in my head, Tom is into me. I’m going to assume by his looks that he is at least fifteen years older than me. There is nothing wrong with that, people of different ages date all the time. There was another day where he asked if he could get me anything for lunch. I already had my lunch packed so I turned him down. However, he asked me at least three times if I was sure. That was another light blub that he was into me. Then there was a day that he told me he couldn’t leave work because I “stole his heart.” I turn to finish my work and say “Oh.” No matter how many times I turn him down, he doesn’t get it that I am not into him. That weekend was our company picnic. Of course, you all know about my boyfriend, Batman. I brought him with for the free food and beer (that will get him to go anywhere with me). I did see Tom, and he waved to me. I thought he would have realized that I have a boyfriend, but since the picnic he has suggested we have lunch together, take a break together so we could talk, and go see a volleyball game together. The guy just doesn’t get it. Though, maybe I should say “No thanks, I have a boyfriend.” sometime, but that just never seems to fit into the conversation.
The only things that I ever really have to say about Jimmy John’s is “WHY DON’T PEOPLE KNOW THEIR ADDRESS???” and rants about not getting a tip. Which I understand tips are for doing good things and not everyone tips, but that is the majority of my paycheck. There is no point in having a second job if I am not making any money.
I just need to find a real life grownup job to apply for and not be miserable about my work situations. I guess, not miserable, but just disliking my situation. The only way to fix what you don’t like is to change it, I guess.
