I worked under a student program at a local hospital here in Wisconsin . When a year passed my fellow student workers and I began to wonder why we weren't making our GS-2's ( raise to next federal paygrade ) . The two GS-1's that work along side me stood up in morning report and inquired about getting our 2's . My head nurse said she would get on it and let them know what she found out . She never got back to them . So I decided to ask the head nurse myself what the hold up was . She jumped down my throat saying " I'm sick of all the wimmpering about you three girls making your 2's . I want you to just shut your mouth about it and leave it alone . " Her language was a bit more fowel and she embarrased the hell out of me in front of the rest of my crew . A short while later I got a certified letter in the mail saying our student programs weren't going to be renewed . I was out of a job .
I decided to try out bartending . I mean , yeah , you have to be a twisted little nut to like babysitting drunkin perverts but who said I wasn't twisted . So the backlash of losing my wonderful federal job wasn't so bad . Then steps in my bad luck again . The bar I finaly got fulltime hours at switched owners . The new owner fired all the bartenders ( me ) . So I was yet again ' out on my ass ' . I found out last night that I had an interview at Dimensions ( the hottest club in town ) scheduled for this morning . I'm thinking to myself " yeah right , I'm not on this level yet . I'll never get this " . I was so friggin nervous . I suppose to cut this short ... After being out of a job for a week now I finaly have somewhere to call home . I'm proud to say I'm a Dimensions girl and I love you drunkin perverts . You pay my bills!

Well, I am glad to hear that you got a job at such a great place. Drunken perverts aren't so bad, since can't you cut them off after they've obviously had enough?

My boyfriend's going into bartending, so I get to listen to his troubles eventually heh heh. Hopefully he will land a job at a great place like you. Either way, I learn cool things from him, like the actual difference between Triple Sec and Blue Curacao being that the later has blue coloring.

Heh, well, congrats on the new job. Drunken perverts are funny. I think you'll have a lot of fun as a bartender. Let us know how it goes at the new place!

I'm two day's in now at the new job . I love it for the most part , but the twelve hour shift's are killing me . As a bartender you don't have the option of getting a break . You're literaly standing for your entire shift . What I should say is mostly ' running ' for twelve hour's . I came home last night at 3 am with swollen feet . So Cyro soaked them in ice water followed by a foot massage ( with scented body oil *grin* ) . My feet are still swollen this morning . It's awful . But I have to suck it up , and head back in tonight for yet another twelve hour shift . Isn't it awful being working class !? Atleast we can say we have our pride , and we earned it *wink* .

Lol, yup. How many nights a week do you work?

I worked 4 nights a week (10 hour shifts) and that was bad enough.

Heh. Don't you love it when your man spoiles you? I got a foot massage when I got off work tonight, too.

I'm willing to do more than foot massages, just so you know. The bright side of her working at the bar (Uptown this time) is that I've come in to visit her every day so far. I think to myself that I'll leave after a couple hours, but I always end up staying there for much longer. I believe she enjoys my company and that makes me happy. I have to distance my self from her at times. One of the things about bartending is that you want a lot of tips from people who come in, not that she's been getting a whole lot in the first place, and guys like to know that a cute bartender is "single". That causes them to tip her more so he'll raise his chances of her coming home with him that night. If they know Sarah is engaged to me (espcially when I'm there) then the tips don't come, at least not a lot. So I try not to make things suspicious by acting like I'm a bit anti-social. If the people Sarah serves didn't give a rat's ass that she's with somebody or not and tips were just chump change to her I'd probably go behind the bar, embrace her body with my arms and indulge in long, passionate kisses just because we could. (Mmmmmm)

I do worry about her feet though. I don't know what'll happen if they keep getting swollen night after night. It isn't good, and I keep telling her to get a stool or something beind the bar so she can sit down and rest when there's nothing going on. 12 hours is more than what somebody should constantly be on their feet for. It's a bit concerning to say the least. Anyway, hopefully she can get transferred back over to Dimensions to work less hours and mke better tips. $200 that girl made that one night. I can't tell you how good Sarah would feel if she made that much.

I know this doesn't have really anything to do with this ...

But in going with the thread title:

What I hate is what happened today. I had a terrible mindgrain in the morning (it was so bad, the fan blowing on me made my head throb, so I had to turn it away and I could barely stand up), so I stayed home from work.

And, I would've worked from 9 AM to 5 PM, which is a good amount of time. And when I'm here at home playing games, relaxing, sleeping, and eating, the time just flew by so fast it's not even funny. I'm like seriously angry right now.

Meh, I just had to get that out.

Heh.

Yeah... I know what you mean, Cyro. One thing people suggested to me since I have to stand all day (especially since i"m pregnant) is gel inserts. My fiance said they are really comfy and helped him a lot at one of his previous jobs. (it's be a nice gift for her, maybe... *nudge*)

Thats insulting darling . I have made about that much in an 8 hour shift . I will be back at Dimensions . It's only a matter of time . They bought Uptown Club to fix it up and double their money when they sell . I didn't have to open The Uptown Club and play the head bartender role . I took it because it was a challenge ( my boss owns three clubs in town ; Dimensions , Outcast , and Uptown . All the bartenders request where they would prefer to be and the boss fluctuates us between the three . ) I wanted to be the one who kicked off The Uptown Clubs grand opening . It was chaos but now my boss will see me as someone who is willing and can follow through . I like standing out from the other bartenders *grins* cha - ching .
