      I've officially quit Pier1 Imports. I decided to not give 2 weeks because I wanted to watch that bridge burn... and also to fuck with my ex - supervisor. He was such a dick.

      I asked my immediate supervisor how he reacted after I left, and her exact words were: "He said were fucked !"

      Ken was with me when she told me this, and he got to see me to my maniacal laugh of deviousness. That made it totally worth it.

      The reason he's fucked, is that despite me only being there 7 months, I had the most seniority of all the staff including the 3 new supervisors (whom I found myself training when I was scheduled with them) and was the only other person besides my immediate supervisor who could run the store.

      Moral of the story, don't be a dick.

      I can only tolerate so much bullshit. This is especially so when I'm tired.

      This morning I go into work, incredibly early for a Sunday, thinking that I'm going to be working on putting merchandise out in the store (there is a mountain of it in the warehouse). However, much to my disappointment, it turns out that I was scheduled to come in early for a meeting.

      This particular meeting was for the entire staff of the store, including my manager, her manager and his manager, and was infuriatingly referred to as a "workshop." During said workshop we were required to watch a video of some woman who was clearly reading lines on a prompt spout bullshit in a much-too-forced-happy way. That was bad, but I could deal.

      Next, the movie gets paused and my supervisor's supervisor begins asking questions about what we just watched. It's early, nobody is into it, except for one annoying ex-supervisor who was trying to brown nose the others, and I sure didn't pay attention to whatever the video was saying since none of it was important anyway. His questions were superficial, scripted by corporate, and ultimately useless, but again, I could deal with it.

      It should also be noted that during this time, anyone who answers a question is being given a piece of candy like they are 5 years old and in elementary school.

      Finally, he has enough of nobody except miss brown nose answering and announces that he's going to start calling on people randomly....

      *twitch*

      ...and he calls on me...

      *anger*

      ...and asks me what future part of the meeting, as mentioned in the overview, I was most looking forward to...

      *limit reached, too much bullshit*

      I look directly at him, and simply say, "the end."

      His jaw drops, the big-boss looks at him, then at me, then back at him, my immediate supervisor covers her mouth to keep herself from laughing, and silence fills the room. Interestingly enough, he didn't bother randomly calling on anyone after that.

      I may or may not still have a job when I go back in for my next shift on Tuesday.

      The last three years have been the best years of my life. They say that it takes a few years before you really get to know someone, and I'm incredibly grateful that Ken was that special someone I was able to do that with. Looking back, I can see that neither he nor I are exactly the same people we were at the start of our relationship, we've done a lot of growing together and it's been beautiful. With his hand in mine, I look warmly to the future and all the adventures it still holds for us.

      So, I found my first white beard hair today. I'm hoping that I go gracefully into a nice salt-and-pepper look until I turn into George Clooney.

    • The Transformation Continues

      A couple days ago (I don't remember which day exactly due to my inconsistent work schedule) my cousin (well, my cousin's boyfriend, they've been dating for 5 years so he's like my cousin) sends me a message asking if he could invite himself over after I got off work. The girls (my sister, her girlfriend, and his girlfriend) were going on an all afternoon/evening shopping extravaganza, and he wanted to make plans to get out of it.

      So he comes over and he, Ken and I wind up going to get some authentic Mexican food before heading over to GameStop. Malcolm (my cousin-not-cousin) was the one who wanted to go, but it was Ken who wound up getting really excited at seeing so many video games in one place.

      You see, I have been working diligently since we've been together to convert him into a gamer, and the assimilation has been progressing nicely this last year. He had to increase the difficulty of Mass Effect to normal because easy had gotten to easy, and he can now hold his own when playing the Halo games on co-op (I've yet to expose him to the terrors of online multilayer).

      So while Malcolm and I both picked out out a couple games each, Ken wound up getting 3 different games: Assassins Creed 2, Mortal Kombat, and Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Then, the impossible happened... and he signed up for a year membership. He did this, he says, to get the 3rd game at a discount, but I was impressed nontheless. My membership had expired years ago, so he made sure to get the points from my games as well.

      On the car ride home he even expressed his excitement over activating his membership card online to make this next-step on his gaming journey official. So the story of Ken, the soon-to-be gamer continues.

      For the first time I was able to pick out an item used as set dressing in a movie that we sell at Pier1. This bowl www.pier1.com/Bowl-Shape-Glass-Vase/2228663... was used in the film Oculus in this scene as a fishbowl.

      The funny part is, yesterday I had a girl looking for a unique fish bowl for the goldfish she'd won at the fair the day before, and I had recommended the this same bowl to her.

      When I took Angel to the shelter the first time, I thought it was a no-kill shelter. I didn't know until after she had been taken to the back that they were putting her in isolation because of her condition and had no intention of treating her at all. I don't entirely blame myself for what happened, mostly I blame him.

      I'm not trying to justify my actions, I just thought that I would be able to heal a little more if I was able to tell my friends what I've been through.

      XD wwweeelll ill have to make room in my schedule -wips out large appointment book- hmm yes i think i could fit you in sometime in november.......

      well the personal stuff about him, im very curious to know cause as i said before, he pretty much cut me out after that day, i dont know anything about him

      its all a very im-dont-know-how-to-think-for-myself-so-im-gonna-let-other-people-decide-how-i-should-feel-and-treat-you, which is exactly what mrs kendall olsen did too, they should all be friends, shallow little friends

      my biggest joke is that i could be a crack addicted whore but as long as i went out in service and made all the meeting no one would care

    • HarlequinGrl

      10 years ago

      well i just went a got caught up, though i see you hid one of his comments or something

      Oh i havent understood that boy since the day he looked me straight in the faced and told me he had never had any feelings for me. ive been worried about him, but he made it very hard for me to really feel any pain for him after that day

      OMG THAT REMINDED ME I GOT KENDALLS LETTER!!!! You would die laughing with me i suspect, ok maybe its not that funny, but it amused me into a good mood for the entire day after it came in the mail, they are such idiots and self righteous like you wouldnt believe, we have to hang out before you leave and i can read it to you, its too long to type >.<

    • HarlequinGrl

      10 years ago

      well you know why im asking -clings to your ankles-

      and as far as people finding out from me, the people we both know either wont talk to me, i wont talk to them, or i would never talk to them about anything important to me, or for that matter, something i know very well that you want to keep private, though i will attack you for information for myself ;)

      I hate people like that... there is no excuse.

      No excuse, agreed; but I'd feel a little better if I could come up with a reason. I just had the feeling she was doing it for kicks, and that makes it feel worse, the idea that someone sees other people at little more than toys to play with and abuse for pleasure.
