For the 4 months I waited for a name tag, I only got that question of Do you work here? once or twice. Now that I have a shiny new name tag, nearly every person asks me this. On Black Friday, I was tired after opening Thanksgiving as well and just trying to get tags stuck into a lock up box so people know the prices along with trying to not get hit by carts since I had to sit on the ground to even be able to get into the case. Then it happened and I couldn't stop myself.
*Has keys to the case, rmu, a label maker, ~shiny name tag~ and an open electronics case in front of her*
Customer: Do you work here? Me: Nope, just reaching into this case to steal shit. *brain screams no in Shatner fashion* Customer: *not even a pause* Do you know where flashlights are?
So tell me, question club. Has there been a time and place where you got asked a question so frequently that you went into a Bill Engval 'Here's Your Sign' quip before you could stop yourself?
Has anyone here ever moved to a new city by themselves without a job lined up?
If n/a, what (if anything) would you tell a friend if s/he expressed interest in doing just that? Said friend has a college degree and has tried to find work in the new city (though s/he has been unsuccessful thus far).
Hi peeps, I have a fake tree that has a ton of fake leaves. It's incredibly dusty and I'd like it to look a little more spiffy. I tried cleaning it leaf by leaf, but I could be there for days :D I took it outside and shook it, but that didn't help either. Am I just lame at cleaning fake plants? :) What can I do?
I'm on a work visa. I have to make up a certain amount of hours, can get asked/forced to work any time and I don't know my schedule week by week. In short, work comes first, life comes after. I am on a roller derby league (in the recruitment phase). I have explained to them I will have trouble making every practice/volunteer requirements because of work, especially during the Christmas period. I have missed a fair few practices but am still ahead of most of the other recruitees as i've been skating for years. Today we had our minimum skills test. I took the day off work for it, only to get there to be told I can't test. I asked to be able to do the tests alongside anyway. I 'would have' passed every single one. After an hour of being treated like the naughty kid at school, I walked out. I felt humiliated and singled out. My 'big' (mentor) and also coach texted me saying she guessed I was thinking of quitting and what could they do to work with me. At this point, I feel like they just feel guilty for treating me badly, and I don't really want to go back as I won't get on the league proper anyway due to my inability to make every practice and service hours, despite being a very good skater and having a good attitude toward the practices I can make. I do want to reply to the text explaining how I have conveyed my issues with work which no one has aknowledged and that there is probably not much point with me continuing with them as I will never make league requirements as they are clearly based on more than skating skill. Is this really passive aggressive?
Do I give them another chance (and probably end up only allowed in the kiddie rink and not allowed to scrimmage) or find another league?
Tl;dr, roller derby can be really bitchy and mean. Should I throw in the towel/find another league?
ETA: There is another local league having a recruitment on Tuesday, i'm just not sure how connected the two leagues are (but i'm 90% sure theyre not at all)
