Let me just say that the fucking manager locked his keys in the store. You can kind of fill in from there, but I will retell the horrid tale if anyone's really interested. There are babies! and a lot of free drinks.
(I've fallen in love with the use of the ! in the middle of a sentence to indicated particular emphasis. I would never use it in "real" writing (fiction, essays, anything), but it kind of mimics the way I speak/think, so I like it. :P
I have snuck home in the middle of my busy day so I can check my e-mail at take my work clothes/apron/hat out of my purse. It was going to explode. I still have to down to [nearest semi-downtown area] and back, but at least my purse will be smaller.
Also, the guy I talked to at the place where I applied wasn't there today, so I couldn't pester him. Plus, Da says that Job Hunting Etiquette says that I shouldn't do anything now but wait to hear from them and apply for other jobs. The only other thing I can do--because the guy said they technically weren't hiring until April--is go in April 1st and say "well?". I do not like this. At all. Thoughts?
Also can anyone think of any jobs I could pursue in or around [the area in which I live]? (If you don't know where I live, you probably won't be able to help me, anyway.) I have retail and general clerical experience and will do pretty much anything that doesn't involve taking my clothes off (though there are days...). Actually, I lie, I can't work food service because then Charbucks could legally sue me. And that would not be fun.
So, should I continue casually stalking the store? Should I look elsewhere. If yes, where? I have this suspicion that the reason no one has "We're Hiring" signs is because no one is hiring.
