This Frees Up My Saturdays For Star Wars Epic Duels

I finally quit my job, after my plan of getting fired went down like a lead balloon.

At my first job, aside from stealing office supplies, throwing a party without asking permission, and mistakenly shredding hundreds of vital documents, I never got to do anything really cool. So at my last job, when I found myself in the position of wanting to get fired, I got excited. My excitement faded when I realized that anything sufficient to get me fired would have to be so extreme that I wouldn't be willing to do it. Instead, I ended up quitting (after a few tries) with a long list of things I should not have done.

This one isn't that bad, but I just couldn't bring myself to post it while I was still working there:

At work I finally got switched to the Granville store. This is awesome, not just because my commute is so short, but also because the Granville store is always dead.

Yesterday there were 3 customers during the first 6 hours of work, purchasing less than $15 in total. Around 5:00, a woman came in to return two baskets, worth $10 each. So it was one hour before I had to close the store, and I had brought in a negative amount of money. As amusing as I found this, I was pretty sure that my boss would not see the humour. So I used my own money to purchase a kids golf set from our toy section and spent the rest of the day setting up and playing mini golf in the gardening section.

You know they make sitcoms that play out like that. I think this would be a Pheobe from friends type thing to do.

thanks, by the way, for comparing my blog to Friends. Next time you can just punch me in the face.

You know, regardless of how much the golf set cost... you really did bring in a negative amount of money since, you know, they have to pay YOU as well.
