On thin ice...

I got a talking-to from the manager again, just cause I raised my voice and apparently people can hear you out in the dining room if you yell. It's just that I was on fries, and I was going to put fries down, but my coworker Jose had just been changing the frying oil so I asked him where I should put fries down. Due to a misunderstanding (because I can't always understand what he says), I put the fries in the wrong baskets, so I got mad at him. I don't like to make mistakes, especially since I was already cited in a complaint for reaching in my pants to tuck my shirt in within the eyeline of a customer (I didn't know the person was watching) or something like that anyway.

My manager says if I'm named by name in a complaint again, he may have to fire me, because he might lose his job if he doesn't deal with me. I could hardly believe this (I didn't say so to him, of course) considering I am overall a good worker, and I have only had outbursts like this a handful of times in the almost 11 months I've worked there. I can keep my temper up to a point. If things pile up, I might snap, but most of the time, I am ok.

I am nervous...I don't want to lose my job. But all the jobs currently posted on Monstertrak for school I either can't do cause of the hours or cause of some qualification I don't meet. I saw one job when I did a general search that looked promising, as a secretary for a psychologist, but you have to know how to balance a ledger and a checkbook, and I don't know how to do that stuff.

I think Einstein's Bagels by the mall is hiring. I keep getting "Exciting Job in your Neighborhood" e-mails for that from Fastweb. I like bagels, and I have some food prep experience (from my current job). I am going that way today anyways, once I can get to the Fiction Express forum to check it. It's not coming up like it's supposed to.


I've started the 5th Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. It's rather interesting. I'm gonna be near Barnes and Noble today, so I may try to pre-order book 6, since this series is looking better every step of the way.

If this vent-fest doesn't interest you, the article below might. It's about life after the Iraq elections. By the way, I think it's great people got out there and voted!!
