HEY REMEMBER THAT POST FROM YESTERDAY THAT WAS ALL GLOOM AND DOOM?
Turns out, it was WAY WORSE than what I could imagine? That talk that went down? It just so happened to be the predication of my ass getting laid off. Sucks, huh?
I was told (short story) that it was because someone was coming back full time (herefore referred to as The Red Menace) and that she apparently needed the hours that I was taking up (How DARE I) and that because I was the newest person hired, I was the one to get the cut. Nevermind that The Red Menace was almost fucking fired back in October, but she got moved to the Starkville theater in order to keep her job. From stories that I’ve heard, she caused nothing but trouble.
The Head Brass knew that and they wanted to go in a total new direction because her being a total bitch to everyone was really hurting business. Hey, I wonder what will happen now that things are back to the way they were?
But yeah, this whole situation stinks to high heaven and I don’t like how it went down. I don’t like the reason it went down and neither do my two co-workers, especially when I told them. They were both none too happy.
I mean, it’s not like I had no idea what I was doing. I picked up everything that was told to me the first time. I even did things that I wasn’t even told to do like adjusting projectors, all that kinda stuff that The Red Menace has no idea how to do. But whatever, it’s like what I told the Boss, it’s his decision, I can’t really argue with it. It’s something he wanted to do so nothing I could really say could change his mind. His loss. He said he’d give me a positive reference, at least.
Funny side to it all, I got home, went to my laptop, and immediately signed up for unemployment. I found out that I can get more per week from unemployment that an average week’s pay from the theater. Why the hell didn’t I do this sooner?
This couldn’t come at a worse time, either because Brave, Spider-Man, and Batman all coming out in the next month and I really wanted to see them and now I have to actually pay for them. Do you know what it’s like not paying for movies for the last 9 months? It is AMAZING. Now that perk is gone. :(
So Madison and I went to Starkville today, but before I went to the video store to see if our paychecks were in. Maybe get a little extra spending money. Whatever. Of course, they weren’t in. We left for Starkvegas. Had fun. Et cetera.
We got home a few hours later and I decided to check for the checks (boom, wordplay) before we headed to the house. They’re in, but when I get it I was told that “whenever I see the boss down at the theater, he wants to talk” to me.
Now, 95% of the time whenever I hear “Hey, I wanna talk to you.” it’s usually been news of the not-so-good nature. So me being me, I’m gonna freak out until I hear something. Always looking towards the worst. Because I suck.
Hell, it may not even be bad news, like I’m expecting. It may be good news, who knows. Maybe he wants to train me to do some video editing or something for his video production company.
Blah blah blah, I can be such an insecure little twat sometimes.
Man, fuck the Yankees and their stupid ballpark with little league dimensions.
But to be fair, the Mets defense and bullpen lost that game for them. Jon Rauch himself even admitted that he was shitty today. Jon Niese pitched a hell of a first 7 innings and it just fell apart after Russell Martin’s bullshit cheap homerun off the top of the fence.
