I have decided I suck at my job. I can’t balance my drawer to save my life. All during training, both classroom and on the job, I balanced perfectly. Eight days on the job and I’ve been short twice. I thought I was short three times but I figured out what I did on Monday and corrected it on Tuesday which made me happy. Today, I was short again by $20. Sonofabitch! If I’m already short twice in eight days I’m not sure how the hell I’m supposed to stay under our allotted amount for the month/year. And it’s pissing me off! I guess I need to start looking for another job because this one is not working out.
I’m tired and stressed. My week so far looks like this: Monday- go in at 3 instead of 4, so up at 2:20 am instead of 3:20. Work until 7. Take my daughter to school. Get ready for the second job. Go to work from 8:45-5:15. Discover I’m $20 short for some reason. Wrack my brain trying to figure out why. Run home, pick up my daughter and take her to work. Stay awake until 9:30 when she got off (they got out early; she wasn’t supposed to be done until 10). Tuesday- Get up at 3:20, work from 4-7. Run home, take my daughter to school. Come back home, finish getting ready, go to work from 8:45-5:15. Figure out my mistake. Get very happy. Think I might be doing okay at this job. Run home. Take Picasso to a school thing for his high school from 6-7 which worked out because I had to pick Rock Star up from cheer at 6. After the school thing I grabbed something for the kids to eat and then went grocery shopping. Got home around 8. Today: I only worked one job! Got up at 6:30, started getting ready, took Rock Star to school. Came home and finished getting ready. Went to work from 8:45-5:15. Had to deal with the fact that the buses were running an hour behind and find someone to pick Picasso up so he didn’t have to sit up at the school for an hour. Lamented the fact that I could no longer be “mom” and do that for him now. Came up short again. Decided I suck at my job and need to find a new one. Ran home, took Rock Star to work. Now I’m busy downloading music and waiting out the time until 10 before I go pick her up. Tomorrow I’m off to work at 4, running home to take my daughter to school and then I’m traveling all day.
I need to dye my hair. I’m trying to download some current music onto my iPod. I haven’t downloaded anything new onto it in over three years probably.
Anyway, that’s my life right now. I’m pretty bummed. And tired.
