wow! I am so pooped! 

 there is so much happening in my life right now I don't even know where to start! 

Lets start at the end of my old job at Ciao Bella....so we stopped serving the public on March 29th. and then for the next three days we threw away, took, scrubbed, got high on fumes, etc...until the store was so shiny and clean I hardly recognized it! hahaha so much work! three full days of that I was exhausted, from cleaning, and not having a day off since the week before we closed! I was mentally tired cause I was loosing my job, my boss's cancer had come back, I was moving, and on top of that had interviews with the new company coming in!

so that is a good transition,  Yes I was interviewing with the new company. I am sick of scooping gelato....but I also knew, or was pretty sure that my unemployment would probably just cover rent (if lucky)  and I would have no money for food, bills etc. So I needed to be an adult about this because a full time job would most definitely pay me enough for everything....tight but secure. I have been working for Ciao Bella for 2.5 years (shock horror gasp) So I knew that I also wouldn't settle for less than upper management cause I have the knowledge, skills, and experience. 

After my interviews (while I was closing Ciao Bella down) I got a call saying they wanted to hire me, they could only (at this time) offer me a dollar less that I made for CB. I thought about this for a while cause a dollar is a lot, but I would be full time....so I would probably make more than CB anyway.   They told me that it was an assistant manager job, . I thought about it again. I was really stressed about this decision because of a few things, I was scared I was not making the right decisions, I really hated the building owners and the chocolate guy, so I would be subjecting myself to them for a longer amount of time....and lastly I would be scooping gelato still. 

I took the job. 

I cried a few times (I'm sure having it be that time of the month really helped me out a lot =| ) 

Ciao Bella closed on March 31. Lush Gelato opened on April 1st. my first shift was April 1st at 6 pm. O_O

wow just jump right in right? 

This is getting longer than I thought it would be...

my first day FUCKING SUCKED! and I kept asking myself "why am I here?" "why did I take this job?" "what was I thinking?" "omg I made the wrong decision doing this!" 

Basically long story short, the guy I worked with on my first day was a total and complete asshat. and I mean that with great emphasis on ass! and at one point he told me, "I'm just the manager of this store don't ask me." 

mind reeling! for a couple of reasons, one if you really are the manager then, yes I know it is a bran fucking new store, but you should have a small bit of information! TWO....and this one is big....MANAGER? I thought him and I were co-managers! :( fuck now I'm super sore and upset. and Like great I have a total douchebag for a boss. 

well I told Monica, whom I considered my real boss, how he treated me on my first day, and how I didn't appreciate it, I know I am new to Lush, but I know my way around a Gelato shop so I don't need to be treated like a child :| She said she would talk to him...he "apologized".

I had one other major incident with him where he was ubber sexist! He also took to touching me randomly. so I called him out on the sexist bit but forgot to ask him to stop touching me and he is so gross! and I told Monica! because I don't deserve to work in an environment like this!!!!

Well then he got hit by a car....while on his skate board...my first thought (yes I'm going to hell) "SERVES HIM RIGHT!" and then my second..."oh shit is he ok?" hehehe :look

well Monica had all of his shifts covered for the rest of the week....I didn't have to work with him and it was amazing!  I get along with everyone else so far! so I didn't understand Joshua, cause I'm nice and easy to get along with. 

(wow really long now sorry)

SO I went to work yesterday afternoon, thinking I worked with Joshua...I get there and Monica is there. Hi hi hi. She tells me some updates, and then pulls me into the back room to tell me that Her and Frederico let Joshua go this morning. me outside--->calm cookie. me inside----> O_O eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!! so she tells me that there were too many incidents (not just with me) in the short amount of time that he had been hired that they just couldn't continue on like that, so woot! anyway then she said they have to hire another full time person cause we have so many part timers but we just need someone really flexible. 

then....wait for it....

She asked me if I wanted to be the other manager!!!

So I thought about it for a min. and then I said that I would love to. and she said that she is super excited to work with me cause I know what I am doing. and then called me partner. 

I am pretty excited cause I almost didn't take this job at all and now I am a co manager! Things are getting better. 

ok I was going to post pictures...but it isn't working....so go to my facebook page! Ill put them there! 

There is definitely more but that is all for now!

holy shit people! [25 Mar 2010|11:03am]
 sorry I haven't been around much guys but there isn't internet at work anymore :(

and I have been so effing busy!!!

Lets see....WE GOT THE APARTMENT WE WANTED!!!!!!
now we just have to pack stuff wee! but we have a month to be out of here so I am going to take my time a bit get rid of stuff I dont need. ^.^

I also had an interview with the guys who are moving into my job location. They have one other location about 4 blocks from my new apartment, so I am kinda hoping to work there and not at my "old job". Turns out the manager and the other location wants to work in Berkeley so maybe we can just switch!
woot!

More on that later I meet with them again on saturday.

Our last day of serving is on monday!!!!! and then tue. and wed. we will be cleaning O_O bah I dont care we'll be done!!!

WHAT IN THE OMG HELL..... O_O [12 Mar 2010|12:04pm]
 HELLO AGAIN!

lets see....story time with Aleena weee

we keep our cases at -10 F (I think F....I don't know why it would be C) over night....anyway things get very very very frozen at that temp. and in the mornings we turn the cases up to anywhere from 10 to 20 F so that they stay cold and stuff but soft enough to scoop.....the softening up process takes at least 45 min to an hour....which is why it is a good idea to turn them up when you get here at 10 am cause we open at 11.

OK that being said....I got here at 10....and at 10:10 there was this woman waiting....mind you my gates are still down and the lights are off still...I did turn the cases up but it had been like 5 min. 

I thought perhaps she was looking for later....which a lot of people do....

so I waited a few minutes and she was still there....so I thought ok you should go tell her you aren't open.

Key: M=me BOL=Bitchy old lady =D

M: Hi, we actually don't open until 11.

BOL: *glares at me* seriously?

M: Yea sorry. I just turned my cases up

BOL: Do you seriously expect me to come back here at 11? its raining!

M: Sorry I just turned my cases up

BOL: Oh COME ON!

M: *lost patience* I am sorry, every thing is rock hard I cant scoop anything until 11! 

BOL: *makes a very loud harumphy noise and storms off*

HOLY MOTHER OF WHAT IN THE GODS FUCK WHAT IN THE WORLD JESUS!

><

DEAR GOD THE WORLD IS GOING TO END BECAUSE BOL CAN'T HAVE HER GELATO AT 10 AM! 


seriously people?!!!

So much to update so little time.... [11 Mar 2010|08:05pm]
First I will start with....I roughly have 20 days left of work! wooooooo 
secondly I am seriously getting sick of my dumb customers though ><

In other news there must be something seriously wrong with me....mentally....yea....ok that is probably not news to most of you.....but I will explain why this time...

ok so do you know those parents that don't really pay attention to their children....like they walk far in front of them or seem to ignore them?

well I was walking to work the other day and I passed a few of these along the way....and I thought to myself....how hard would it be to steal one of these children? 

I deduced that it wouldn't be hard at all actually because I work at a gelato store...so I could be like why hello little child would you like some ice cream? 

>>

<<

Like I said I'm mentally special! 

well the parents would never notice! :D

and I just had some whiskey at work....wooooooo  ^_^

it is slightly awkward to be at work and have the people who are taking over your business to be here measuring and prodding while I am here....but guess what I don't care!!!! 

<3

More of the crazy chocolate shit.... [17 Feb 2010|03:54pm]
So my manager and our boss had a meeting with the building manager about what happened two sun. ago. (or is it three now it took me a while to update :\)

the building manager said well I'll talk to the mexican restaurant to see if they can use better products. Valerie and Jim both said that isnt enough b/c Ponos pushed one of their employees.

(Jim is my boss)

So Jim says I'm getting Ponos he needs to be here... so he gets him and when Ponos comes outside they say we need to talk. and he said "not now not like this!" and Jim said "no we need to talk about this and today"

and ponos kept saying no no no.

and then Ponos started walking back to his store so Jim said "oh ok you want to talk in your store" and followed him but Ponos was like no outside!

so the four of them went out side to discuss the door issue and what happened on sunday. and ponos started blaming Valerie for everything saying it was all her fault and we were plaing games with him trying to ruin his business. goes on and on and finally Valerie gets fed up and starts yelling at him...

this goes on for ten minutes...until finally Valerie says to him "WE ARENT PLAYING GAMES WITH YOU WE ARE COLD!" and then storms inside.

SO then they were like ok we will look at the video tapes and see what we find.

so yesterday the building owner said that nothing on the tapes look suspicious....but he is a lying mother fucker. cause he also said the security tapes were on his computer but they are upstairs...

I want to see this video. cause I witnessed all of this and there was lots of suspicious shit.,

grrr =|

wtf [08 Feb 2010|08:41pm]


hokay so....this post might end up being longish....

Ummmm so I dont really know where to start....there is this chocolate place across from where I work...perhaps I need to draw a diagram...

<---- this should help...

SO as you can see there are two sets of doors and we get a cross wind at our store. the chocolate place which I have re-named Chocolate Hell =D tries to always keep the doors by us open.

Now I know for some of you you have a million ft of snow and itsbelow freezing etc...so you might be thinking during parts of my story COLD?! but trust me it does get chilly here.

so it is winter and it is colder here than most other months. especially after the sun sets. two of my co-workers have colds right now....and Im starting to feel iffy...

Chocolate Hell wants the doors open all the time...we wear jackets to make up for it but we arent really allowed...ok fine whatever. if it gets too cold we shut the doors.  we have gotten in to discussions with them many times over the past two years about this.

Supposedly their chocolate is very tempramental and the smells in the building affect them....supposedly. and apparently they cant change the thermostate because then the people down at soup and sushi would get too cold....HYPOCTRITE MUCH?

anyway last night took it one step further. They closed their little hell shop and left, leaving the doors open....I was cold so I shut the doors...WE ARE CLOSING! =|

not even 5 minutes later and hell owner comes back and opens the door telling me they need to stay open all pissed like...this is what ensued after that...(all caps means there was yelling....like serious yelling)

Me: I was going to open them after we finished closing and

Hell Man: NO I DONT THINK SO THEY ARE STAYING OPEN! 

Me: I think that is ridiculous we are cold

HM: NO THEY ARE STAYING OPEN YOU ALWAYS ARE BEING SELFISH WITH THE DOORS AND THE SMELL FROM THE MEXICAN PLACE WHEN THEY ARE CLOSING IT JUST IT JUST THEY ARE STAYING OPEN!

my co-worker Kat has had it at this point because I was trying to be mature and come to a compromise and he just started yelling at me! and she walks over and shuts the doors again.

Kat: NO I DONT THINK YOU UNDERSTAND PONOS (his name) IT IS COLD AND WE ARE CLOSING THESE DOORS! 

HM: WHY ARE YOU BEING SO SELFISH YOU ONLY THNK OF YOURSEVES THE SMELL IS TOO GREAT FOR THE CHOCOLATE! THEY ARE STAYING OPEN!
and he opens them....so she closes them
KAT: LOOK WHO IS TALKING. YOU NEVER RESPECT ANYONE ELSE IN THE BUILDING YOU ACT LIKE YOU OWN THE PLACE!

HM: WHY ARE YOU BEING SUCH A BITCH. (and he opens them)

Kat: (closes the door closest to us) FINE DO WHATEVER THE FUCK YOU WANT WITH THE OTHER DOOR BUT THIS ONE IS STAYING CLOSED! 

he goes to open it again and FUCKING PUSHES HER!!! PUSHES HER! 

kat: DONT YOU TOUCH ME!

hm: DONT YOU TOUCH ME! 

KAT: I DIDNT TOUCH YOU.

so then this goes on for a few minutes him calling her a selfish bitch all of us selfish that we dont care about anyone else in the building that he does stuff for us but we never do anything for him! that he bends over backward and shit. and all kat had to say was look how is talking because he is being such a hypocritical liar! he never does any of this shit he is saying. explains that we are in a cross breeze that they would never understand how cold it is in our store and they never will because they are in the corner and they dont get the air flow that we do.

kat: IF YOUR CHOCOLATE IS THAT FUCKING TEMPRAMENTAL DEAL WITH YOUR PROBLEM DONT FORCE THE REST OF US TO FUCKING DEAL WITH THE CONSIQUENCES.

HM: BLAH BLAH SELFISH BITCH BLAH
 

and storms out of the building.

yea. not even fucking kidding.

today has been interesting cause I see them goissiping to some of their "friends" I bet ponos has left out that he shoved my co-worker and I am a fucking witness so try something ass hole I fucking dare you.

this is great though they are calling us selfish bitches....fine we are bitches that dont give a flying fuck about anything cause we arent here after march....so mess with us we will fuck you up!

=|

I am pissed...and possibly going to set of a stink bomb in their store :D

yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

two fucking ridiculous stories! [21 Jan 2010|10:52pm]

pardon my temporary terrets fucking cocksucker motherfucker bus driver passed me tonight at the bus stop in the RAIN with lots of GROCERIES. I cussed for two blocks and then dared people with my eyes to mess with me because I was now walking in the RAIN with GROCERIES fucking cocksucker.  yea....pissed....still am.

I want someone to hurt from this.

and my second story is another tale from my lovely crack den.

SO we might.....well we do knowing our building and luck....have rodents.  of course the way we discovered this was through a half eaten pot brownie....of course we would have stoner rats to go with this house...and poop dropings....so I called my land lord to let him know.

first he was shocked that there was even the possibility....and even more so that they might be in my roommates bedroom,,,,even though my roommate has two very sizeable "hidden" doors in her closets...
Door one...

and door two...covered up (by us!) because it didnt have a door!

and so I said to him....really even with the HUGE holes in her closet? so he says ok Ill send Nick by and he'll figure out whats up and seal up holes (even though they are doors)

and then he told me that he is pretty sure there arent rodents b/c they just re-sided the house and they would have seen them if they were in the walls.

YES BECAUSE THEY STAY OUT IN THE OPEN LIKE THAT! ESPECIALLY WITH ALL THAT NOISE YOU WERE MAKING! WHAT THE FUCK?!

and then I said well maybe we should have an exterminator come by?! cause rodents can cause problems

Oh no they cant! we'll seel stuff up and then they will just leave in three days.

WHAT PLANET DO YOU LIVE ON!

and then my sorta landlord....well he came over with THESE...



SERIOUSLY?!

OH THANK GOD YOU BROUGHT US THOSE OH SO HUMAIN MOUSE TRAPS! THAT WILL SOLVE ALL OUR PROBLEMS YAY!

ps sorry this was so long

I owe so many cookies that I will just start rewarding hugs for reading this far ^_^

WELL DO I HAVE A DOOSY FOR YOU ALL!!! [18 Dec 2009|12:32pm]
*deep breath*

The Crack house strikes again:

ok so I'm pretty fucking tired today I went to bed at 1:30 and got up at 8:30 not too bad right?! WRONG!

Like I said I went to bed at 1:30 and I was pretty tired so I'm pretty sure I fell asleep right away. I am awoken by a banging noise. At first I thought maybe my alarm had gone off and I needed to get up for work but fuck was I tired really?! its really dark outside.... the banging is really really loud...ok is someone at my door?

BANGING!

I am suddenly wide awake and I look at my phone....its 3:30 in the fucking morning....what the fuck is this banging?!

I keep hearing it and then it dawns on me what this noise is....suddenly my heart is racing faster and there is a shit ton of adrenaline running through me...why you ask?

I realized that the banging was coming from our windows....SOME MOTHER FUCKER IS BANGING ON OUR WINDOWS AT 3:30 IN THE MORNING! Let me tell you one thing first before I continue, I live on the third floor of my crack house and the only way to get to our apt are the stairs in the hall way....the fire escape doesn't even reach the ground safe right?! hahaha...to continue (Ill have to edit a photo in here)

many scenarios are running through my head at this point and I'm freaking my self out I don't want to move my curtain and look because what if someone is trying to break in?! so then I think ok Ill go to the kitchen and look out that window because it looks at the little roof that has my window and Caroline's windows. First I ask Ricky..."am I going crazy or is someone banging on our windows?" to which he says wow yes....so we are wide fucking awake now.

I go to the kitchen slam the window open and see this guy banging on Caroline's window (let me just add this hysterical point SHE SLEPT THROUGH ALL OF IT! WHAT THE FUCK CAROLINE! ARE YOU A DEAD PERSON?!) ANYWAY... so this is the dialog that ensued...

Me: "um who are you and why the fuck are you banging on my windows?" (I am fully aware that this might be a crazy guy who will shoot me but holy hell he wouldn't stop banging!)

I shall call him Crack head or CH for short (while he was talking he was slurring and

CH: FINALLY! I'm locked out.
Me: That's nice, I don't know you.
CH: Well I'm Han's friend and I'm staying with him and he went to the bar and I didn't go but I cant get a hold of him I keep calling.
Me: I'm sorry
CH: I know this is weird but I'm freezing my ass off and could you please let me in?
Ricky: Um no!
CH: I know you don't know me but I know Mellow and pete and hans and I just cant get him on the phone please
Me: Call Luke then (Luke is Mellow)
CH: I don't have his number just Han's
Me: How am I honestly supposed to trust you here. its 3 in the morning and I don't know you and you're banging on my windows.
CH: I know I'm really sorry
Me: Fuck it fine Ill let you in, Ill meet you down stairs
CH: I'm fine with just climbing in this window...
ME: NO. I'M ALREADY LETTING YOU INTO MY BUILDING AND I DON'T KNOW YOU THERE IS NO WAY IM LETTING YOU INTO MY HOUSE.
CH: Ill meet you down stairs then.

so I let him in...but I had so much adrenaline that I couldn't sleep for at least another 30 min on top of the 20 spent talking to this douche bag. he was high as a kite.

arg! what the fucking fuck! if you made it this far I love you... you get a cookie :)

sorry about all the Ellipses :D

So I had an interesting day... [29 Nov 2009|11:21pm]
I have one funny story and one movie that I insist people watch...

So Valerie and I both noticed that we both straightened the cups when they are uneven and then I commented on how we both wanted them to be even.....then we both realized that all of us that work there do that and so then Valerie says

V: Yes we are all a little ODD
Me: why yes Valerie we are all a little odd
V: um ahaha yes but I meant OCD...ODD because we all have OCD and ADD
Me: AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

>>

<<

AMAZING!!!

Also I must add that Valerie and I watched this completely amazing movie called Ink (preview: http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi3411215641/ weeee)

everyone must watch this movie ^_^
