A lot has changed since the last time this blog was updated, I worked at subway for about 10 months and most of my time was spent there, making sandwiches for undeserving cunts. But that’s a whole other blog. I only worked a couple days at the gas station a week, so I wasn’t experiencing much that was actually worth updating about. But about a month ago my friend Michelle got offered a better job down state, so she had to quit the gas station. This fortunately opened up full time hours for me, which I gladly hopped on because fast food really is the worst job I could ever hope to have. People are mostly rude and ungrateful and they treat you like you have the IQ of Lindsay Lohan, because you’re the one behind the glass making their food. So I’m glad it’s over, because now I have my sanity back and stuff to write about.
I don’t really have a specific topic to talk about, just some interesting people I have encountered over the past two weeks. First I would like to to talk about the crazy lottery lady that treated me like I was a casino dealer. I seriously have never seen this lady come into the store before, but I’ve had the pleasure of seeing her like 3 times over the past two weeks. It’s funny because when she comes in she is actually driving this giant van for her ‘job’. I put job in quotes, because driving this van is just her side job, her real job is buying multiple scratch tickets from me and scratching them off with pennies she takes from the ‘take a penny, leave a penny’ jar. She is a shorter woman, in her mid 40’s and she has some kind of crazy zest for the Michigan lottery. One day she scratched at least 20 dollars in tickets and won like two dollars, always calling me lady as she ordered more tickets from me. There was also a maintenance guy there that day fixing a cooler door and they were creepily flirting with one another, but that guy also hit on me later, so I’m pretty sure he was just some kind of pervert. But that’s besides the point, this lady is extremely annoying and too peppy for her own good, I’m scared she might kill me one day if I don’t deliver bigger winners. More updates on her if she comes in within the next couple weeks.
This next person I’m going to talk about was actually quite a little gem. A taller woman in her mid to late 40’s comes bursting in the door demanding to use the bathroom. Her clothes were from the mid 90’s and her hairstyle was in full mullet prime. I pointed to around the corner and told her someone was in there. Then she proceeded to turn to me as she held her crotch saying “But I really have to go” and she then wiggled and almost jumped up and down, it was bizarre. She then went on to talk about how she always stops her before she goes to the casino for a pit stop and I continued to just ignore her. She bitched about how the person was taking forever in the bathroom and the person in the bathroom must have heard her, because she told her to hold on another minute. And then the crazy bitch was like “Ohh, she heard me. Oh nooo, I just really have to go to the bathroom!” as she continued to hold her crotch and rock back and forth on her heels. I just rolled my eyes at her and continued to try and make myself look busy until she was like, “Ohhh, there’s milk spilled on the floor over here. Someone spilt milk.” So I walked over there and saw milk on the ground, because apparently some idiot knocked one off the shelf earlier and it busted open everywhere. So I picked up the jug to go and throw it in the sink and then she pipes in “Ohh, honey, ohhh you’re leaking milk everywhere.” This is when I snapped, I had heard enough of her. So I piped back “Thanks, because I didn’t realize it was spilling all on the ground. You don’t have to tell me, I know, I’m just trying to get it to the sink.” She just look astonished at this point, like she was trying to do me some giant favor by letting me know I was leaking milk on the ground. She piped back with “Well I was just trying to let you know.” After this I just walked around the corner and threw the milk in the sink and she finally got into the bathroom and shut the fuck up. When she finally departed I just looked over at my co-worker and shook my head.
Sometimes I just don’t understand where these people come from, or what on earth gave birth to them. But even with the craziness that goes on all the time there, it hasn’t been so bad being back there full time. There’s a lot more to come, especially since it’s the New Year with plenty of new stories. Adios for now, stay tuned!
