Halloween Night


Well I survived another day at work.   It was crazy all the people buying candy at the last minute.. I think I kept up prettty good.  Learned some new tricks tonight on how to be faster.  I just want to make sure I am friendly too. One of the checkers I work with is my best friend.

She was telling my husband tonight that she heard two of the baggers talking about me and that I was too slow.  Well I am not too slow because my items per minute has improved everyday.  I think they are just jealous because they are baggers and I started as a checker.

She told them off and to leave me alone because I was new and of course it was going to take time for me to increase my speed.

I don't know what those witches were talking about because if it is who I think it is, she couldn't even keep up with me and the purchases were getting all crowded where she needed to be bagging them.

I hope they aren't going to try and cause problems for me because I am just there to make a living and pay my bills.

I don't care if I win the fastest checker or not as long as I take good care of my customers and make sure their bread doesn't get smashed by going too fast for the baggers to keep up.

This is the first year that I haven't dressed up. :(

My son called today and said he got his student loans and that it was going to be a payment of $400.00 a month. OUCH!

I hope that I will be able to make alot of hours and send a little money his way to help.

I still got to pay my electric bill.  It is late and I don't have enough yet. 

Tomorrow I work 4:30 to 8:30 .  That will be a little easier than it was tonight.

Hope everyone had a Happyand Safe Halloween!

HI; just visiting your journal. Wow, you would think people would have gotten their candy much earlier than the last minute considering they put the candy out so darn early (at least they do where I live in Montana).

You take your time when you are checking - people appreciate the care given to items (like no squished bread etc) especially since they have to pay so much for things these days. With time, like you said, you will pick up speed.
