The job itself is fine. It's just my boss.

I'm supposed to be part time. So why am I working 32 hours last week and the week before, and 40 hours this week? He's also refused to grant me a weekend off that I need in late November for a wedding out of state, where I'm in the bridal party. He also won't work with my schedule when I start school in January.

I really should post this on the WFD thread, but tonights dinner is Tomato Salad Appetizer, With four kinds of tomatoes from my garden, chives and basil from my garden, and the herbs in the vinaigrette I'm serving it with are from my garden. The only non garden items are blue cheese, blue cheese croutons, sauteed onions and BACON!!!!!!

Then we are having a steak with steamed zucchini that came from the garden! I'm not sure what all the potting soil cost, the pots were like $17.99, but I think we might have recouped some of our costs financially if nothing else, we have flavor-wise. These tomatoes are really good. The only problem is that Fran didn't know the "Yellow Pear" variety were going to be like cherry tomatoes only they are yellow and pear shaped.
Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter

Your dinner sounds fantasic.

Happy birthday early, since I only know it is sometime next week and never caught the actual date.

Me, too. I'm really not thrilled about this, especially since he told me when he hired me that he'd work with my school schedule.

I doubt they will. The store is in the same union as my mom's store and she spoke to the union steward about some other issues (we were without air conditioning for about 3 weeks, during a major heat wave) and even he said that the manager is a jerk (although he used another word I can't use here).

Well that sucks, does it mean that you are still looking for a job?

Such a shame that you've had to apply for other jobs when the issue seems to be with an *idiot* who really should be doing what he needs to. Is there any way of appealing to corporate or is policy implementation based on what the individual wants to do?

The one good thing about our last thread shutting early is that now I don't have to think about how to sneak in here during work hours.
