    Today a wasp got the better of me. You could say that stung.

    Never thought the day where I'd be out of touch with internet insults would come. When did "guys" become a derogatory term now? I've seen the rise of a lot of dumb terms become insults over the last couple of years, but this one just confuses me. Not trying to bust anyone here, I'm legitimately curious as how that word became an initiation of violence.

    Also work later. Just let me know if people are getting bored of my complaints. Rest assured I am looking elsewhere.

    Not sure if this should be the best part for the news or worst for breaking the news. I took a month's notice. Yup, it's actually happening. It sucks hearing your coworkers be sad about it and you being the one to break the news.

    My worst part of the day occurred yesterday when I found out that Italy failed to qualify for the World Cup. So now that is two of the countries that I root for that failed to qualify for the World Cup. So odds are I probably will not watch the World Cup next year.

    I think the worst part of my day was getting out of bed. Oof. I want to be asleep.

    You do enough talk, my little hawk, why do you cry?

    One of my meals turned out to be nothing but fat and gristle. It was a Korean beef dish that looked great on the cover. I'm quite disappointed right now. >:I

    I got to come home early today... only because I threw up at work after feeling crummy the whole day. I don't even feel that sick otherwise but my stomach is super upset and I don't know why. : (

    I'm real sorry this is happening. Maybe you could take advantage of thinking that now, you won't have to deal with that slacker on the team. I hope you find something better.

    Your optimism is amazing satopi!

    Sadly this job is making me miserable and although I should be happy I don't have to go in as much - it's the fact that I will now have to go through processes to try and reclaim that day, while also informing benefits people that I'm not working as much.

    Also I asked for time off next weekend and didn't get it but that's the least of my concerns.

    Looking elsewhere desperately - I don't think my current job is run well at all.

    Hey, that's what I'm saying with my current job! I see and now that's going to be an annoying hassle. @_@

    Since you know your current job isn't running well, it's best that you leave before it gets even worse. Trust me, I stood by my job through thick and thin where it at one point got better, only for it to quickly turn out 2x even worse. Keep looking out for those opportunities!! You could always try out a different job temporarily until you got the job you wanted. I seriously hope you hear back on a better job soon!!

    A friend of mine on Instagram just posted to say that they're leaving the site. I understand that they probably have reasons to leave but it doesn't stop me from feeling really sad, since they were really fun to talk to and they were one of my main inspirations to keep on drawing.

    Yeah...

    put on my adulting pants today and asked my boss why my hours had been dropped - apparently it's because it's not as busy so there is less need for me to come in. Like, sorry the business isn't running as well as expected?

    One plus is that it sounds like I'm unwittingly gone on a zero hours contract which means I can refuse weekends if it's the case. At least I'm still getting paid...for now xD

    Ultra Sun came out on payday too, just in time

    Fell out of bed and now my arm is really effin' sore. At least I have Ultra Moon to help ease the pain I guess. :T

    sheridan has sent me my info but the entire faculty is on strike. the website says that it wont effect me just yet, but it's been a whole month so the year may be significantly cut.

    also my backup school has probably accepted me but im still anxious about that :P

    Welp another complaint about my job.

    This time it's more legitimate. One of the slackers on the team ended up not turning up so got sacked. This left us with his workload on an already busy shift. Another two staff had left the day before as well which isn't helping, considering hours are dropping across the board...

    On top of that my hands and feet were more or less ruined due to the amount of scrubbing I needed to do. I got blisters from running around so much. Also back pains but that's becoming bearable.

    Thankfully I was given an extra day off next week so I won't be doing one weekend and can spend it recovering and hanging with friends. I shall use the weekdays to think about a plan of action.

    EDIT: I have found a funny picture that accurately describes my situation. Sometimes Front Of House can annoy me so much...

    Residents at this assisted living facility I work at have been getting the flu since last Tuesday and now people at my home have been catching colds. It's going to be very hard trying not to get sick before or during Thanksgiving break and my hands are extremely dry and cracking from all the hand washing I've been doing the past week. :/

    Not getting support over a decision that's only going to affect me. I know I am by all means capable and legally able to move to wherever I want to but it would be nice to get some supportive words. I mean, I'm the one making this life changing decision all by myself. I wish I didn't give a f*** but I don't know, I'm just not programmed that way. I do give a f*** and I'm ok with that but I will do what I believe will benefit me then to stay unchanged and allow others to control my life.

    Getting told that the fifth grade teacher would do a joint teaching exercise, only for her to leave me with the kids alone for nearly the entire class. Fifth graders can be crazy/hyper without the head teacher in the classroom to keep them on track. Luckily I had the lesson already planned out just in case, still it was a hectic experience.

    I had booked time off work to spend time with a friend but they have to be away for the time I booked off.

    Doubt I'll get a weekend off for a while now.

    Second grade, holy crap, usually they have a strong teacher to keep them in line, but the principal had to sub in today and the kids went absolutely nuts! I am shocked I made it out alive, especially since leaving the classroom involved having five children cling to me.

    Been told to do more hours. I would be fine if they gave me additional responsibilities but no it's just 6 more hours washing dishes.

    I used to do that in the beginning of my job as a housekeeper (I helped out at the kitchen to try out different positions in the hotel.) It became stressful when we needed more plates during rush hour (breakfast) yet we didn't (and still don't) have enough plates to accommodate the whole hotel. Sure washing dishes isn't particularly hard but it's mentally aggravating (especially when you deal with the head chef who doesn't seem to understand how quickly and time consuming a pile of plates can stack up!) Try a different position (and it can be outside or inside the kitchen. You just gotta find your niche. Don't try housekeeping... too much drama!!!) I know you think office jobs seem more cushy, you can aim for it and try it out!! Your boss should assign you more hours if he/she thinks you should work more, it ain't your job to assign yourself more hours! If you're comfortable doing this, you can request for them to give you additional responsibilities or at least give you something else to do than just washing dishes.

    It's really weird. Yesterday I was told to make some chips.

    Hooray responsibilities!

    ...except that there were three Kitchen Porters on (my role) and about 8 chefs including a prep chef - and they still made the KPs (me and another guy) do prep work and food run despite there being more than enough chefs leaving the new guy by himself on sink which inevitably meant stuff started to stack, not to mention servers in general don't stack properly making it a hazard that needs sorting...

    Yeah we didn't get out until 2:30 am. I'm amazed we didn't get shouted at for being late out.

    Got 40+ hours next week but honestly just done. Office work seems far less stressful.

    I think you're just in a bad kitchen with terrible management. That's insane that you guys stayed out til 2:30 a.m. That's way too late!! If you wanna try office work, check out the mailroom and be a sorter there (something even I've been thinking of as a part time job) and I heard data entry is pretty good. Definitely look elsewhere if your job's stressing you out like this. There's better work out there and you'll find it and get it!! A different is always good going into because then you'll know what suits you, what things you don't like, and what you don't mind doing.

    Those roles are so screwed, that stuff is supposed to happen when you're understaffed! (something my job is facing)
