    • The story behind the monkey....

      11 years ago

      SaintJrad

      So apparently a lot more people are interesting in my monkey story than I thought there would be.(see last journal) So here's what happened.....

      I used to work at Toys R US for starters. At toys r us they try to sell things like warranties, their quota on batteries, customer surveys, and credit card applications. Well it's the slow time of the year for them right now and they dont have a whole lot of people coming in. Well they have goals for those different sales items.

      It was my job as a cashier/return desk associate to ask about and push these different things. Well numbers were not so good so my managers decided to come up with this "game" called "monkey on your back". They went off to the stuffed animal department and grabbed a sock monkey from the shelf, one with velcro hands so it could grab onto stuff.....

      I came into work one morning and my manager throws this thing around my neck and tell me that I can take it off as soon as I get a credit card application from a customer! At first I thought oh this could be interesting and i'll just play along. It turned out to be humiliating and I hated it! I finally got rid of the damn thing and passed it on to someone else.

      The day that I quit it was really slow and my manager had seen that I hadnt gotten any customers to say yes to a credit card application. So they decided to pull out this fucking monkey again. My manager comes up to me with the intent of sticking this thing around my neck. I told her that I was gonna pass on the monkey right then. She said to me, in that tone of voice where she is trying to be nice but is actually telling me what I had to do, that I couldnt refuse the monkey.

      So I looked her square in the face and said that I wasnt going to do it. It was degrading and was something you would do to a grade schooler! So she says, "Alright Jared, I will take note of this insubordinance!" And walks off.

      I got talked to for an hour by my 2 managers about how my opinion didnt matter and I didnt work for some "ma and pa shop" and that I either had to "buy into" their way of selling or find a new job. So the second I left her office I knew that that would be my last day.

      This whole thing started with this stupid monkey, and all I did was stand up for myself when I didnt think something was right.



      Oh and one last thing, I now have a new job at Albertsons working in the bakery. It's awesome starting pay and I even get paid extra for working Sundays! Don't know why, just do. It's awesome.

      Hey guys, just thought it has been a while since I made a journal entry. A lot has been going on with me so I apologize if some of you are waiting on stuff from me. I quit my job, I'm working on moving out, just got a NEW job at Albertsons which I'm pretty happy about. If any of you wanna know why I quit I promise you an interesting story that involves a monkey!......Fucking monkey. Anyways, hope you are all doing well, I'm about to go have lunch with a friend. Cheers. smiley0.gif

      So recently I just made an avatar for my friend RvBRocks555. (see previous journal) And I thought it turned out pretty good and he really liked it and I've had nothing but awesome feedback about my photoshopping projects. But for some reason this one was different....I got negged modded about -10.........What the fuck?! So I would just like to thank all my GOOD friends for bringing my journal entry back up from the negatives. I had "friends" on here saying I was retarded and neg modding those who commented my journal. Kingk9, you know who you are and I just want to say.....

      FUCK YOU. I know I'm probably going to get neg modded for this but I really dont give a shit.

      Thanks guys, just needed to rant. Have a good night. smiley1.gif

      Hey guys I've been hard at work doing the photoshop thing again! Don't worry, no babies were harmed in the process. Well at least not yet. I made an avatar for RvBRocks555.(show him some love! smiley0.gif ) Was able to snag a pic of him from bungie.net and thats what I worked with to make something that I think looks pretty classy.

      I started with this......

      Hello
      How are you?

    • zzzspartanzz

      11 years ago

      Body: PLEASE READ THIS WHOLE POST. IT'S SO DANG TRUE* 1. At least 2 people
      in this world love you so much they would die for you. 2. At least 15 people
      in this world love you in some way. 3. The only reason anyone would ever
      hate you is because they want to be just like you. 4. A smile from you can
      bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you. 5. Every night,
      SOMEONE thinks about you before they go to sleep. 6. You mean the world to
      someone. 7. If not for you, someone may not be living. 8. You are special
      and unique. 9. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you. 10. When
      you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it. 11. When
      you think the world has turned its back on you, take a look: you most likely
      turned your back on the world. 12. When you think you have no chance of
      getting what you want, you probably won't get it, but if you believe in
      yourself, probably, sooner or later, you will get it. 13. Always remember
      the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks. 14. Always tell
      someone how you feel about them; you will feel much better when they know.
      15. If you have a great friend, take the time to let them know that they are
      great. Add this as a comment to ten of your friends tonight and at midnight
      your true love will find you. Something good will happen to you at 2:25
      tomorrow. Get ready for the biggest shock of your life. Whoever breaks this
      chain letter will be cursed with 10 relationship problems for the next ten
      years tag ur it!! this is so scary!!! send this to 15 ppl in the next 143
      min. and then press F6 and your crushes name will appear in big letters!! it
      is so scary because it works.... but if you break the chain.. you will be
      cursed w/ relationship problems. NO SEND BACKS

      omg...... Someone else has played it!

      Mordak's Castle was the only place I would die. Just because those monster things spawned randomly and I only had one bag of peas. That and you had to capture the cat in just the right place. I need to set up my computer to play it again. Sadly, my laptop doesn't have a bad enough resolution. >.<

      Wow... that's unbelievably lame. It's hard to believe that they would MAKE you wear the thing if it was clear you were not comfortable with it.

      You have my full support for quiting that job. Hell, I probably would've done the same.
