I wish someone could explain to me the mentality of people who bitch at a cashier because of incidents that had nothing to do with said cashier.

Tonight, this woman asks me for a price check on some olive oil that was on sale last week (our sales start Thursdays and end on Wednesdays). It's back to its regular price now and she gets mad because someone named Amanda told her it was still on sale.....back on Wednesday. Yes, it was still on sale back on Wednesday when this person told you that. But the best part? There is no one who works at our store named Amanda. So, I don't know what the fuck she was talking about. So, she walks away, puts the oil back on the shelf and comes back to bitch at me about spending $300 on pharmaceuticals at our store while I'm trying to ring up another customer. And she says she's finished with our store.

Ahem...

WHAT THE FUCK WOULD YOU LIKE ME TO DO ABOUT IT??? Jesus Christ. First you tell me about some person (who, for all intents and purposes, doesn't exist) telling you something that was factually correct; and then you complain about the price of your fucking prescriptions? I'm lowly cashier guy. How exactly do you think I can fix these problems for you?

I fucking hate people sometimes. I swear to fucking God.

Venting in a "this is cool and I want to talk about it" way here.

My friend and classmate Sean Grassie has been away from class all this week. Why? He's been representing our province as the skip of Team Manitoba and the Canadian Mixed Curling Championships up in Iqaluit, Nunavut of all places. He's done alright so far, 10-1 record in the round robin portion of the tournament nets him first place and a bye to the final. He plays tomorrow in the final against Team Ontario, a team he crushed 8-2 in the first match of the tourney.

Sean's the guy on the left.

I'm a curling fan as it is, but this puts it over the top for me. Our entire class is pulling for Sean.

Grr. I just walked from my house to the centre of Bristol to check out the 10am showing of Zach & Miri at the brand new Showcase Deluxe cinema. This place is supposed to be great, digital and standard screens, even a special directors theatre with extra big comfy seats, a special menu and the ability to pre-book a specific seat for a showing (plus its over 18's only). Apparently the hype is big enough that at 10am on a Saturday over a month after it opened the place was packed.

I've been to 10am saturday showings of Star Wars movies on opening weekend in this town with only 7 people in the theatre. I love being in an empty cinema, theres no noise and no stress. 90% of the time I see new films its alone at a weekend morning showing, its practically a ritual now. I've only been into a packed cinema twice in years and that was just for Special early showings of Hot Fuzz (with cast interview) and Transformers.

Frankly if I ever decide to go back to this place it will be for some as yet unknown special film for an early morning weekday show in the Directors Theatre when I have time off. I just don't see the attraction of going there for a screening over travelling 10 minutes the other direction and paying the same amount to sit in an empty VUE cinema.

It also annoys me that there is an IMAX in the centre of town that had to shut due to lack of business but this place in packed around the clock just because it has a fancy menu. However good it is the screens won't be up to IMAX quality.

Just Facebooked my name and realized there are 5 people who share it in this town. I now have an uncontrollable urge to hunt them down and kill them, like a psychotic Dave Gorman imitator.

There are five people in your town call Stavros Russianovich?

Its Stavros Oblivarious Kaplinski and you know it.

Update on my Zach & Miri outing attempts. Went to a midday showing at the nearest Vue, there were three people in the cinema including me (win!). Great film too, my housemate told me the Daily Mail hated it so I figured it would be right up my street. The moment the Pixies started to play my heart slowly break.

Well, it's one thirty in the morning, I have to be up in six hours, I'm not tired.

I just finished a shitty paper due last week, so I'm losing 10% of the marks already, which is my fault, I know.

I write it up tonight and what breaks down, my printer, so i have to e-mail that and something else to myself and pray that i can find a working printer tomorrow.

My room is such a shithole with people not respecting me or my stuff and just treating it like a bin, which is all well an good for them, but they don't have to stay in here, I do.

I am so stressed out and the worst part is, i don't have anything really to be stressed out about, so WTF is going on with me.

Oh and I got offered a chance to backtrack on something I made a possible mistake on a while ago and I may either fix the problem, or fuck everything up. Oh it's fun being me.

Alright, so excluding the year my folks died, I think 2008 is in the running for worst year of my life so far, and bearing some sort of miracle in December, I don't see that changing.

Let's review.

January: My supervisor at work, a friend that helped get me the job, decides to take advantage of our friendship and starts treating me like shit. I come to the realization that while he's good for a laugh at times, he has zero respect for anyone and an obnoxiously large ego. At the end of the month, I chose to cut him off, as upper management is of no help. I just ignore him and do my job. The rest of my time with the company, he (a 40 year old man, mind you) decides to antagonize me at every turn, falsifying reports on my work and trying to get me fired for utter bullshit.

February: I got probably 6 hours of sleep this entire month. Start of a huge insomnia cycle.

March: Windows XP decides to eat itself and wipes out my entire hard drive. I had a grand total of TWO stories backed up, the rest are gone forever, including four short stories I was working on, two screenplays, my back ups of every past and in progress E-2 piece I'd ever worked on, and six novels.

April: An ex girlfriend finds me on MySpace and I discover that she's now an amateur porn star. I try to act surprised.

May: Insomnia cycle ends for about two weeks until...

June: My girlfriend of over four years, the girl I intended to marry, dumps me and disappears for weeks, not once offering an explanation. I briefly lose a vast majority of my material possessions during this time, including all of my video games as part of the "divorce".

July: I start searching for a place to live while my ex starts trying to convert me to her new found religion. Later on, I realize that this just so happens to be the same religion her new boyfriend follows and I learn that he is the reason she broke up with me. If that wasn't enough, she comes to my room crying every night, telling me that she misses me and doesn't know what she's doing, completely fucking with my head.

August: I move in with family that can't stand me and decide to utterly rape me on rent. I have no bed, no privacy, and my internet shuts off at 1AM every night, making recording an absolute bitch.

September: My car battery dies in the middle of the highway and I have no cell phone. I sit for 4 hours, finally hitch a ride, and spend every cent I have getting total strangers to help me with my car.

October: I turn 24 and realize I've done absolutely nothing with my life. This is also the month I go through a handful of horrendous dates and realize that I don't hate myself nearly enough to start dating again.

November: Due to issues with my former friend/supervisor, I'm put in a position in which I have no choice but to quit my job. To cap things off, today I was told that I have to be out of here by February, meaning that I have to move yet again.

I have no money, no bank account, one part time seasonal job that still hasn't gotten back to me, no "real world" friends that I can shack up with, and a nagging back pain since I haven't slept in an actual bed in over 5 years.

I seriously think I'd go insane if I didn't have this place.

All joking aside, sorry this year has been so rough on you, DW! :shakehead:

Let me clarify, I've never actually SEEN her "work". She just told me about it.

Something about knowing that I was with her before has prevented me from actively seeking out what exactly it is that she does with chopsticks, a midget in a wheelbarrow, and five pounds of honey barbecue sauce.

Damn, I think that ones just about as my own personal, 2008: Worst year ever.

Currently stuck at school. I need to do a Photoshop assignment that will take me about 2 hours. Problem is, only the class computers have Photoshop, and those rooms aren't free until three, so for the next hour or so, I'll be cruising the net.

It's actually much more tasteful than it sounds.

Thanks peeps.

I'm trying to get back into school, and even ignoring the fact that no college in existence offers Creative Writing as a major, I need money to pay for school. But to get money, I need a job, and to get a good job, I need to have gone to school. It's a vicious cycle.

Actually, my college does.
