sonic failed the health inspection.
10 days to fix all the critical violations or it's going to be shut down and all the employees fired.


this is like...some kind of overwhelming victory for me.
i love it.
I fuckin' love Sonic. I know it's probably just as terrible as all fast food, but I love it still.

Especially since I only get it when I go down South, which I haven't done in YEARS.

Tomorrow or Thursday afternoon, I'm going into town to apply at a couple places:

1: The local bagel shop, which is a less-than-five-minute walk from my house.
2: Lou's, a lovely little restaurant in the nearby college town.
3: The Dirt Cowboy, a small café in the same town.
4: The Dartmouth Bookstore - self-explanatory.
5: The Gap, which is close by, plus I'd be getting paid to act like a stereotypical homo and tell people how to dress. Easy money. PLUS Ben works there! YAY!
6: Lui Lui, a nearby Italian restaurant.
7: Three Tomatoes, an even closer Italian restaurant.
8: Salt Hill, a nearby pub.
9: The Nugget, a movie theatre in the nearby college town.


My cousin used to work there, she loved it. And according to her, once they know you're a homo you're automatically hired.



Places I want to work:

The Library
A book store
Lush
Urban Outfitters (so that I can be a role model and tell everyone, 'You don't have to be anorexic to wear these clothes', and I'll help people with any questions they have, and be the friendliest stranger there....because I'm not evil but I know how to sell).

Your cousin's gay too?

Anyway, apparently if you work there you get everything sold there and at Banana Republic half-off. While most of it I wouldn't be caught dead wearing, there is probably some stuff I'd find quite dapper. And at half price. Awesome.

my only job was a mother tongue french teacher at highschool, for like, 3 months.
i had students from 13 to 19 (and i'm 20). it was pretty fun. i made them do all sort of creative stuff, games, writing stories and poetries, listening to music. strangely enough they liked me i thought it'd be awkward as hell and they would all make fun of me, but no!
so , it was cool.

I have the best job ever xD

I work as relief staff at the library for £6.30 an hour, and rarely have to do more than serve people on the counter and put books back on the shelves. Everyone I work with is delightful, and all the people who come in are lovely or at least amusing.

I've also started working at the local visitor's centre - it was my first day today, but it was RAD.

No job.  Kickass unpaid internship with a theater group called Cabaret Vagabond here in Chicago...totally punk cabaret.  I'm helping them with their residency at the University of Chicago, choosing furniture for the set and planning for future work.  Basically, a dream come true.  Now, if only I were getting paid.

I work in an office for a finance company, and today, my foot stool broke. So now I'm all lost and distressed at work because I don't know what to do with my feet!
So today I hate my job
They didn't even give us footstools!
Arrggh! Sue the bastards!

I am still in love with my job. It's still so new that I love being able to say "I have to go to work now!" but, even the thoughts of going in aren't like UGGGGH I DON'T WANT TO, cos I really like it. I am gushing :D

Funny thing...  There's no law that says your job has to suck, or that you have to hate it.

I have a friend who drove a garbage truck for years...  didn't have a terribly high opinion of
most of his co-workers, but he loved the job.
