this journal is about my Job
its going great tbh i love my job my coworkers are great and its a good challenge and i think they like me there?? anyway let me spin you some tales of my work so far
> yesterday two of my coworkers (C and D) found like, pills?? loose pills? under the counter and they were like "wtf" so were making all these jokes about these mysterious pills and D was like "nah but seriously... what are these?" and i, in my infinite knowledge (more like, me in my infinite shitty allergies and sleepless nights) said they were antihistamine (D, in a disappointed voice, "so you can't get f*cked up on these?") but they were so impressed with me knowing what the pills were lol and then C was like "what are you working at culvers for shouldn't you be in med school":')
> me and O dared A to drink a mint sauce and mt dew mixture. he took a small sip, immediately ran to the bathroom, was in there for a worrisome amount of time... walks back out like nothing happened and then asks the assistant manager about workman's comp while side eyeing us lol
> J is gonna start student teaching soon, and Z is 15 and he's like, "are you gonna student teach at my school?" (that school is what nearly all the high schoolers working at culvers go to, not me tho :^)) and J's like "no that place sucks" and Z's like "nooo it doesn't i want you to teach me" and J says "you don't even know how to read a clock. what are they teaching you at that school." i say, "wait Z do you not know how to read a clock?" and Z says, "it's not cause of the school i go to!" and J says, "what is it then" Z just sighs and goes "it's cause im gay" and J and me start laughing (J: "WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH ANYTHING. DAMN IT Z, GO CLEAN THE BATHROOMS". Z: "i can't, im gay. i told you this already. you should really listen better").
> C crafting The Artery Clogger, a hellspawn of a sandwich with 3 patties, roast beef, tuna, leftover breading from the fish, like 10 packets of mayonaise, a l l the kinds of cheese we have, some other stuff i dont even remember, and a "secret ingredient" all on sourdough bread
> D found a rotten banana behind the custard machine, prompting K, D and me to quote spongebob for the next 10mins, and D says hes putting the banana in his locker and hes saving it for if the health inspector ever comes in
> me and Z were working the registers and D's on set and he just says out of the blue, "man, i'm ready for the big sleep... yanno what i mean?" and were like No... what is the big sleep?!?!?! and after a lot of talking in circles he finally says, in the most defeated/incredulous tone, "its death. i. i wanna die. come on, guys." and were like haha yeah same (D has a weird sense of humor, usually involving physical violence, death, and animated gestures, but hes legit one of the funniest people ive ever met)
> C and me talking about league and other video gaymes, D making fun of us for liking league (D: "any talk of league while on the clock and i will FIRE YOU" C: "i dont think you have the authority to do that" D: "DON'T TALK BACK TO ME" ((throws fries))), us making fun of D for liking anime.
> several of my coworkers sing... ive only ever heard T sing christmas songs, J sings whatever comes on the speaker (80s and 90s music,,, its ok i guess, i heard some dire straits, genesis, billy joel, cheap trick... i dont know the 90s stuff tho) and if u listen closely u can hear K ironically rapping "it's everyday bro" from the kitchen
> getting a dog's business card (me: "wow, your dog has business cards?? and i don't?? ive really gotta get my life together" and the old lady couldn't stop laughing lmao)
> R is in training to be a shift leader, like D, T, and K are. but shes so nervous lol. so J (the assistant manager) and me are trying to reassure her, but it just ends with us roasting the other shift leaders lol and T was like "you're NOTHING without me!!"
> closing is nice, peaceful. i hard blast music and just do what i gotta do. im always the first one done (yesterday O said she was surprised i was done before kitchen) so i help whoever else.
> apparently, the kid who trained me, B, is like the laziest one there lol. J was like, "wait B trained you?? and you actually do your job well?"
> so this lady, Rebecca, was training me on drive (shes like 35-40, and super nice) and D's making custard. its the morning, so its Slow As Hell, and its valentines day. D was talking about how he went to the 24hr supermarket across the street to pick up cupcakes or smth like that for everyone, but there was no pink sweets, what little they had was sold out, like they just skipped v day and went to st. patty's day lol. so rebecca said something about how it was all sold out because today was valentine's day and i swear to god D just drops into like, a crouch, hands on his knees, and he just goes, "YA THINK, BECKY??" and it was the funniest thing ive ever seen holy shit poor rebecca couldn't even take a customer's order she was laughing too hard
> i was closing and K and C were there also, i was done w what i had to do, and J asked C to do something but he was sweeping so im like "i'll do it" and i do the thing and K just goes, "yo (Insert Apsa's Real Life Name Here) is clutch as hell!!"
> in the same self important vein, C was on drive with me and J's going around giving people Tasks to do (basically, you gotta do something that a higher up assigns you, like checking the ice and filling it if needed, or changing the garbage, or smth like that, before you clock out). so C goes "don't give (Insert Apsa's Real Life Name Here) anything, she's doing great" me: ((A L I V E))
> T, R and me were closing and T went to get something from his car and R was like "be careful" cause it was Snowing outside, and T fires up his car and does donuts in the parking lot. so imagine me and R just staring at the drive thru camera, deadpan expressions, watching T spinning in circles. R just turns to me and says, "i dont know how hes not dead yet."
> they encourage employees to greet people when they enter/leave and if someone says "thanks" you should say "my pleasure".
me: (walks into the store from an actual blizzard raging outside, wearing only a hoodie, looking pissed off probably)
Z: "hello, welcome to culvers!"
me: (Death Glare Activate) "Thanks"
Z: "my pleasure."
it can be stressful, or boring, or w/e but... i think of it as a nice challenge, every day. interacting w/ customers and my coworkers, and doing my job well. its fun 90% of the time, and my coworkers make it better. i keep thinking theyre older than they actually are (two of em are 15, they have to leave at 7 lol), a lot of the people who work there are actually young lol. i hope i can be Friends with some of em. idk if i told u guys this, i think i did, but irl i go by a nickname. however, on my nametag, it says my Bona Fide Real Life Name, Kathleen. so thats what my coworkers call me, which i really like. its like A New Me. also, getting money. i,m love money
ok goodbye now i need to sleep
