Working for a living

Well I didn't want to say anything sooner, since I'm superstitious and didn't want to jinx it, but it appears I do have a job at the big box store. It's not much of a job. It's not at all clear how many hours I'll get out of it. In fact, it's not even a job yet since it appears there's about another million hours of orientation to go through but I am in possession of my official new hire folder and went through the first two hours of orientation today.

Have to go back Saturday for a few hours of watching videos on how to be a good employee I guess. And then there's another training session which I assume will cover how to operate the cash register.

The worst part is I'm going to have to buy some clothes. I got the black pants covered. Hell most of everything I own is black but I don't have any white or red shirts. It appears I can get away with just a white tshirt though if I do the shirt and vest thing so that's okay. I saw Walgreens was selling generic white tshirts for 4 for ten bucks. Guess I'll go pick up a couple.

Anyway, I have a job. I won't make enough to pay the bills but it's a start. And it appears I'll get an employee discount card, so there's that.

Glad you got the job. Work it until you find something better. Cat

Thanks Cat. It's good in some ways to be out and about interacting in meat space, so there's that. ;)
