      Okay, I'm just about to start my new job on Sat. and a friend calls and tells me about her new job. She says she thinks they're still hiring.

      Now, she I place an application at the new place or stick with what is definate?

      Here are some of the facts.

      1. This new job has better starting pay, while the one I know I have is union w/decent benifiets(sp?) and room for advancement.

      2. They would have the same working hours, overnights, doing the same basic job, stocking.

      3 The job I have is at a grocery store, stocking canned and boxed goods. While the other is a department store, which means it could be clothes, housewares or who knows what .

      What do you all think? If you'd like more fact just ask. If you don't care, please ignore my journal.

    • I'm looking for 'bad movies

      in Forums > I'm looking for 'bad movies | Follow this topic


      Okay, I'm a fan of 'bad' movies. What I mean by bad is movies that are poorly acted, poorly directed, poorly written, but fun to watch.
      As long as it's entertaining, even a little, I like it.

      So what I'm looking for are movies that would be considered terrible, if they weren't so freaking entertaining.

      Some examples of this would be anything from Troma entertainment (Toxic Avenger comes to mind) and Full Moon Entertainment (Puppet Master, Demonic Toys, Dollman... the list goes on and on).

      Hopefully this topic won't get locked for any reason and I'll get some new favorite movies.

      I did a bad thing last night. I made a topic which got locked.

      Why was it locked? That's the bad thing I did, I neglected to read the forum rules before posting. I feel like an idiot.

      I just want to say, not that anyone cares, that I'm sorry for not reading the rules before posting. That's something I always try to do, but I had a slight lapse in judgement.

      And to the mod that locked it, not that they'll read this, Thank You. I broke the rules and you enforced them.

      I just wanted to get that off my chest, I feel better now and will do my best not to make the same mistake twice.

    • Alas poor Xbox....

      14 years ago


      We hardly knew you.

      Well, I got a nasty suprise tonight. I was sitting down to play a little Burnout 3. I pushed the power button on my Xbox and.... nothing. I checked the power cords, looked good. Hmmm, now that was odd. I went to turn on the TV... nothing. Okay, now this is pissing me off.

      Upon further investigation I discovered that both my Xbox and TV in my living room were FRIED! That's right, dead. It turns out there was a nasty thunderstorm a couple nights ago and, stupid me, I didn't have them plugged into a surge protector. Now I'm gonna have to spend several hundred dollars to replace them, and since I don't start work until Aug. 7th it's gonna be quite some time.

      Just wanted to get that off my chest. Man am I an idiot.

      Employed at last.

      Here's the story. In march of 2005 I attended a job fair for Rainbow foods. I do the drug test, I wait by the phone.... nothing. I go about looking for another job, with no luck.

      Skip ahead to early May and I recieve a call from.... Rainbow foods. I waited two month for the call, but I finally got the job. I begin training in a different store (the store I applied for was a couple months from opening). One month later I'm doing a good job, showing up on time, not complaining and what do I get for my trouble? "I'm sorry, we're going to have to let you go. There have been budget cuts." Ouch.

      Skip ahead one more month and what do I spy? Rainbow foods is having a job fair. WTF? Why not call back the people they 'had' to let go? Anyways, I went to the job fair today, brought an application, talked to the person doing the interview, mentioned what had happened a month earlier and low and behold... I'm employed once again.

      If the trainees are good enough to rehire, why not just lay them off and call 'em back when the store is ready? Why waste a month to train and just cut them loose?

      Oh well, it's all good now. I think I'll just STFU and go about my 'new' job.

    • The Insane Babbling of a Sleep Deprived

      14 years ago


      It seems to me that no one is going to see this (okay, maybe one person, if he bothers) so I can say just about anything I want without worrying about reprecussions.

      The problem there is that I have little to say. Sure I could complain about being unemployed, but what good will that do? Or I could complain about the heat, but again it'll do no good.

      So I'll talk about what's on my mind right now. I'm currently watching Red vs Blue season 3 with the commentary on and I have a problem with it. My problem is that there are too many people involved and too few microphones. If you are going to have multiple people in there, get more microphones. It's very obvious who's close to the mike, who isn't and who's in another room (or that's what it sounds like). I know that's a lame complaint, but I did state that I had little to say.

      Okay, I'mm gonna get some damn sleep... I hope.
