Getting Away with Shit @ Work

We need to talk about Jaslene (not her real name of course) and how the things she gets away with drive me crazy and I know it ain’t my business (it isn’t) but I just need to vent. (Also the character Jaslene in my upcoming novel is actually based off the girl I’m about to rant about.)

(I need to put in a thing about how I accept that I’m not allowed to discriminate against people with disabilities, and I usually genuinely like her, except for tonight, she pissed me off, probably why I’m ranting.)

Jaslene has worked for the fast food company for 3 years. (So I get that is where is she granted leniency.) She recently began having seizures. One of was so bad she broke her foot, banged up her face and did some other damage to herself. (She didn’t have it at work.) As far as I know she’s not diagnosed epileptic, she just has seizures and is on a medication to control them. (I also mentioned that she could get a service dog that would notify her of seizures before they happen. See I was nice!) From what I understand she has to take her medication with food and at specific times a day, 7:15 PM being one of them and I know this, because of this: Everyday management at work ask her if she’s taken her meds. She then claims that she needs to eat to take her meds. So she is allowed to take a paid lunch to eat and take her meds. Jaslene just doesn’t eat like a couple of nuggets and take her meds, she makes a sandwich, fries, (sometimes a sandwich and a potato) and a drink and goes sits down in the dining room and eats. This is at 7:15 PM. Then at 8 PM-ish, she takes an unpaid lunch and leaves the store for 30 minutes.

The reason I’m bothered by this is because I was told to eat between customers, and when I did I was accused of not getting up to help customers because the manager never saw me get up (I actually blogged about this here: Pet Peeves @ Work ) so now I don’t sit down to eat anymore. I just make my sandwich (usually a small $1 one) and stand at the trash can behind grill to eat it. I’m usually never out of line of sight with my station.

The reason I wanted to blog about Jaslene is truly this. I like Jaslene, always have. Currently she and Brett are having a thing, pretty sure they’re “taking out the trash” just to make out at the dumpster (it is enclosed). Brett lives at home, and Jaslene has a “fiancĂ©.” Tonight Jaslene was a dick. She put in her earbuds around 6 PM and ignored everyone. She worked sandwiches and I worked grill, so I need her to communicate with me over how much chicken she has available or how much meat she’s taking from the grill. She didn’t say jack to me and when I tried to talk to her, she ignored me. This made me feel low, unwanted, which developed into an anger towards her tonight.

What I’ve Been Doing w/my Life Since Last Post

After watching the Warcraft movie I decided to go back to WoW. After buying Legion and playing it for less than a month I’m back to where I was when I quit Warlords of Draenor. I’ve got a max level character (two actually) and I need help from others to do quests that require mythic dungeons and raids. You can easily gear your character without actually doing anything except daily quests. As your item level increases, it increases the item level of the gear rewards. When I joined this guild I was asked to raid, to tank actually, and so I leveled my DK as a tank and started gearing as a tank, then I was told that they needed DPS and so I switched to gearing up my DK as a frost DPS. My ilvl is above what is needed for mythic +0 and I wanted to get attuned to Karazhan, but I hate pugging mythics. I’ve pugged 2 and they’ve been horrible experiences. I think I’m also going to go back to being ranged DPS. So much easier to avoid standing in crap if I’m not melee. I love my DK, I think he’s awesome, but I’m having issues (mostly coordination issues) playing him.

DOOMSORROW

I’m still working at my fast food job. I work the grill position a lot more, which makes me happy, cause I’m not in Drive Thru. Remember the girl who said I was racist, well she honestly doesn’t like working drive thru with me. I think it is because I think for myself and make my own decisions. I dunno how many times someone has ordered ice cream at the window and when I go to make it she’ll ask me what I’m doing. I really wanna say, “My job, and I know what I’m doing. I’m not some noob.” Well the last time we worked Drive Thru she said that we were gonna have problems because both of us have big asses. So I traded to work inside sandwiches with another girl. This other girl is the first girl’s bestie, and her ass is as big as mine. They worked together just fine. I’ve started claiming that Drive Thru is just too claustrophobic for me.

My husband finally bought a new car, well new used car. It is a 2012 Hyundai Genesis, has less than 100,000 miles on it. Very luxurious and well taken care of.

I’ve managed to read a couple books, well listen to them rather. I really like the Alex Delaware cases, and have listened to the first 3, and now trying to delve into the Rick Riordan Asgard series. I really enjoyed his Children of Olympus series, bought and read every one. Got the new Special Agent Aloysius X. L. Pendergast novel and since I didn’t like how Crimson Shore ended, I’ve only read a chapter of the new book.

31 Days of Horror 2016 Day 2

Since I hadn’t seen the Freddy movies since I was a teen and couldn’t remember the plots of them (they were all the same really, Freddy terrorized teens while they slept and somehow they managed to do away with him at the end of every episode) but I simply chose 5 because it was before my favorite one: Wes Craven’s New Nightmare.

This Freddy movie had to do with his child getting him out of the original starting city where he was burned. It was as cheesy as I remembered it. Freddy was more prankster than scary by this movie. He still killed everyone, but it wasn’t by what scared them the most.

On a side note of the movie watching I forgot the Resident Evil and Species franchises and wondered what equalled a franchise, more than 3 movies?

31 Days of Horror 2016 Day 1

According to critics this movie was the worst one. I’ve seen the first movie only of this series and I thought the first movie was rather dumb. I consider myself a cult classic horror movie connoisseur (as in my tastes are often opposite of the critics).

This movie is Paranormal Activity 6: The Ghost Dimension, and I hadn’t even realized that there were 6 movies. I was certain TGD was number 4 or something. PA has almost as many movies as Star Trek and Star Wars.

PA:TGD was all jump scares, but that was basically all the other movies, but I think I was more impressed with the camera being able to see the paranormal activity, and how cool and trippy everything looked in this movie.

I do have to point out that the last 15 minutes of this movie became an episode of Supernatural minus Sam & Dean. If Sam & Dean had been there, they’d have probably solved this problem in 30 minutes.
