And now I don't

...have a roommate that is. In my last roommate update I wondered if I should post the crazy ups and downs of this ride. Dawn said yes so here's another one.

Amanda's not ready to move out. Fair enough. I didn't leave until three days before my twenty-fifth birthday. There's no point in rushing it. She was worried about telling me but *I* am not worried and I told her so. Who knows, she may change her mind by January. Or, the boys may get really good paying jobs and be willing to pay me storage. Or I may find another roommate. Something will work out. For now, the ride continues.

My new job is going well. I worked yesterday from 2-6 and today from 12:30-5:30. My feet are SORE but I'm getting the hang of things and even starting to remember where certain things are in the store. Today it was just my boss and I and I had really high sales that way over shot the goal she set for me. Yeah!!!

Yesterday was quiet and it's MUCH harder to work when it's quiet. Today it was busier and I learned how to do mark-downs. I got to use the little pricer gun and everything. Small things for small minds LOL It's good though. My boss is super supportive and makes sure to give me feedback on what I'm doing right or wrong. I'm looking forward to the Christmas season although I'm pretty sure all our customers will have their shopping done by Remembrance Day :P

Oh kind of thought this was a possibility. But maybe she'll change her mind again, you never know.

And you think your customers will have done all their shopping? Ha! Sounds like you have a little to learn about retail :)

The reason I say they'll all be done with their shopping is because they're mostly women over 45 who are super organized and anal about being done early.

Yes we'll have stragglers but not as much as some stores.

And yeah, I always knew that Amanda may back out.
