Scary timesYesterday Cathy came by for drinks before the 1 yr & going away party for Barb. I gave Cathy a tarot card reading, we had a really good time. The party was kind of a bust, barely any one showed and the place where they got the food did not cook the tortillas. Soon as I had a taco, I got real queasy. Not good. I stuck to putting every thing on a tortilla chip after that. Cathy also told me that they closed one Carin*s up north and there were 4 more on the chopping block. Our store is one of the lowest sellers, so we'll see what happens. Even where Steve works they are doing a 2% lay off. First they are going to give out retirement packages to those that qualify or just about qualify. Then they will see what is left. Lay offs will be given Dec 1st.
It is going to be a long month......
Our GM got wind that I gave Cathy a card reading and when he asked me if it was true I told him yes.
"That suits you" was his reply.
Heh, maybe I should start threatening him with a Voodoo doll if he pisses me off.
Other gossip news was that Mary could not come in to work because she had been arrested the night before. She and Pete, her boyfriend both work for the company.
Turns out the two had a fight and cops were called. Pete took off and Mary got arrested for drunk & disorderly. One of the guys Steve works with lives in the same complex and mary & pete. When he had gone down to see what was going on the cops put him in cuffs until they figured every thing out. This seems to be a common occurance with these two. Steve's co worker is hoping they get kicked out soon.
Pudd'n and I have today & tomorrow off from school. It felt nice to sleep in.
It was sad that it was Barb's last night. She had the cooks make us a bunch of food to eat after the rush was over and we were cleaning up. They really do treat the managers like shit, so I can't blame her for wanting to move on.
Well I guess I'd better get my ass in gear. Lots to do before going to my night job to find out more drama!
