I miss being on here all the time!
I started a new job on the 17th and my hours are a little long, so, by the time I get home, I cook dinner, unless dh does, eat and go to bed:wacko:
The first job was HORRIBLE!! I went the first day and didn't go back. They were so mean and rude. I was called stupid, ignored at breaks and just couldn't understand their program because of the trainer.
That's okay though, this job is great. It's with a huge self storage company that has over 500 storage units, including climate control, about 100 RV/Boat storage spaces and they are expanding even further. We also rent UHAUL truck, trailers, car transports and tow dollys. This is the first real retail like job I've had. It's tough sometimes when you have so many people in at the same time trying to get things, but, it's actually fun. You get to hear where people are going and coming from. There are some really nice people that come through there. I've always had bad experiences with people with lots of money, but, the people that own this company, work there everyday and are just so super nice!!! I've been there since the 17th, worked 4 days the first week and by this past Monday, they gave me keys to the place to open and close. I'm still getting use to closing. You have to go through the receipts and seperate the cash, checks and credit, then total each and count the cash drawer, print reports and match everything to make sure of no discrepancies{sp} but, I'm catching on. I was told that it usually takes people close to a month to learn what I have in a weeks time. That made my day!! I also had an offer to go back to BIL's company, my nephew, who was the only other one to know my job, quit!!:lol: So, I told my new manager last Thursday that I may go back and she went and said something to the owner and he called me in and flat out asked what he could do to keep me there, that they really liked me:wub: . He said that they want someone that can be trained to be assistant manager and that his plans were to build another facility and wanted them to go there and manage when he does and that they felt that person could be me.:smile: BIL can kiss my butt!!:tongue:

Just wanted to catch you up on what is going on. I'm happy to find this job and that money is coming back in.

Howdy TG!! Great to hear that you are doing well with your new job!! Yeah, it can be always a bit rough at the start of any new employment, getting used to the new routine, new chores, new people... but trust that everything will get easier and settle into place as you get more into the swing of everything, and it is good to hear that now you are with nice people... if I were you I wouldn't go back to that old place of yours, you said that company was like a sinking ship, and after they treated you like they did... I think you would be much better off with this new opportunity.
Take care of yourself, great to see ya again and come join us whenever you can!!

Glad to hear that the new job is going so well. It sounds like you might really have a great future there.

Nope, I won't be going back!! I love this place and the people I work for and with. I've even lost a little weight from all the walking. LOL
I'm finally going to break the 160 on the scale, WOOHOO!!!

Thanks you two!!
