I am so tired! Two NINE hour days of sitting in a room with about twenty other people have worn me out. Orientation was just as borning as I feared it would be, and then some!So, now, I'm going to veg out and watch some Flavor Of Love...Yes, I am a dork...and, I AM THE HOME DEPOT!!!-Von
Blah... so bored here. I have Home Depot orientation at 8am tomarrow and Sunday. Poo... I hear that orientation there is soooo boring! At least I get paid for it, right?-Von
What did you do today?
Me? Well...I GOT A JOB! So there! Ha! Beat that!=P-Von
I really wish that I could just skip this whole interview process and get strait to the job getting. That being said, I have an appointment this Friday at the South County Home Depot. My mother in law knows the hiring manager there, so she helped alot in getting me this interview.Is Home Depot my ideal job? No... a pet store job would be much closer to ideal, but since I don't forsee any pet stores calling me back anytime soon, so I'll settle for Home Depot. It's still better than fast food. *shudders*A book store or libray would also be great... but... that ain't gonna happen any time soon. *shrugs*My valentines day turned out to be really nice. It didn't look like it was going that great, but it picked up really fast! I bought Drew the Wallace and Gromit movie, he got me a Hello Kitty watch, and my mother got me The Corpse Bride. *w00t!*Then, Sunday, Drew and I are going out to Pennies BBQ with Jess for her birthday! Why? Cus we were invited, and totaly live near by! Life is good, yo.-Von
So, PetsMart isn't hiring anymore. Apparently they just hired three people. But, my application's on file now. At least I did'nt have to sit around for several weeks wondering why I haven't heard anything yet. ...still sucks, tho...I also put an application in at Pet Market Place, which is where we buy our rat food and bedding. Hopefully I hear back from them soon.My mother in law is also suppossed to be calling her friend at one of the local Home Depots on my behaf. Something's gotta come through, right?-Von
Busy day, yo! Drew had the day off, so we did a bunch of running around today.First, we went to PetsMart at Chippewa and Kinshighway, cus they're hiring. I was told that they have "Hiring Seminars" every Tuesday, so they took my name and number, and I go in Tuesday to talk to the hiring manager. I wish everyone would hire like that. I think it makes things much easier on both the applicant and hirer. Only one small problem with PetsMart... they don't allow visable facial piercings. That's no problem for my eyebrow, lip, and septum piercings, but my nostril ring is still healing. I went to Iron Age and got a clear plastic retainer for it so that it will be less visable, but I'm still nervious about changing the jewlery. You're suppossed to wait at least 6 weeks before you change the jewlery, and I haven't even had this piercing for a month! Here's hoping that everything works out... *crosses fingers*While filling up at QT, Drew noticed that our back passenger side tire had the tread coming off. *sigh* But, after a call to T&B Auto's (our dealer and where we got the Taurus) all was well again. They gave us the name of a used tire shop where we could get a really good deal. A good, deal, indeed! We ended up paying only $25 for a good tire. Thank goodness that wasen't the huge deal that it could have been....and now for something compleatly different...Seen on a bumper sticker on a car driving down St. Charles Rock Road:"If you can read thisThen you're not the President"*rotfl*-Von
