I bought the new Eminem CD yesterday. I know that makes like five CD's that I've bought this year... a new record for me considering I used to buy like I'd get an award for having the most CD's. So far it's a pretty decent CD, and the song Just Lose it is definitely not an indication of the rest of the album, much like all the other first singles from his CD's. There's actually one song on there called Ass Like That where he raps as Triumph the Insult Comic Dog for a while, poking fun at celebrities and somewhat at Triumph as well. Definitely a good CD though.
I see they found Scott Peterson guilty... it's about damn time. I wonder when they will start pushing for either a mistrial because of the jury changes or for whatever other reason. I say just put him in prison, I'm sure someone will fuck him up pretty bad in there. We can hope anyway.
Today was yet another shitty day in the saga of my job. It was actually going very well until about 11 when the credit card machine wouldn't take people's EBT cards. Then I called our corporate tech desk and talked to some asshole there that eventually put me on a speakerphone thereby making it so I could only hear every third word he said. And of course he didn't really help me either, not that I expected it from that place though. Of course the previous week has been hell too because of all our stupid Christmas stuff that has come into the store that was not in our system. Technically we aren't allowed to put things into our scanners ourselves because they do it all for us. Well apparently not all, because I had quite a bit that wasn't in at my level. But of course that wasn't their fault, it never is. After emailing them about five times I start getting responses back telling me that everything seems to be good on their end, that maybe we will have to put the stuff in on our end... even though we're not supposed to. Well, if they're making an exception to that rule then to me that means that they fucked up. Speaking of them fucking up, they sent me 150 turkey pans on Tuesday. Well, I already have 100 sitting around the store, thanks for asking assholes. OK you say, Thanksgiving is coming up and I'm sure they are all going to sell. Shit, we only pay 70 cents a piece for them so I should be able to sell them at a low price and still make a decent profit. That is of course if they were in the FUCKING THANKSGIVING AD. That's right; they didn't put turkeys into our big almost two week ad. They are in the ad that ends today, but not in the week where we are pushing Thanksgiving stuff and turkeys. My regular price on these are $2.79 and on Thursday I emailed corporate and asked what the deal was and mentioned that I would like to put them on a deal for 99 cents to go along with the ad. And as you guessed... no response. What a bunch of stupid mother fuckers.
