#4846: I have escaped with sanity intact.

I made it. It was assholes and elbows for six straight hours today--I ended up staying an hour over--but I left and didn't look back. I'm done with that place. Hallelujah.

Six hours at the counter with almost no help, no time to take a leak unless I begged a customer's indulgence; I finally managed to have my snack (oringinally intended for 12:30) after three. I worked continuously the entire time I was there.

Why should my last day be any different? Way to go, Best Buy, for making it obvious that I'm doing the right thing, here. Holy crap.

The Russian military relies heavily on engines and parts made in Ukraine, so it's no surprise that Russia is now having trouble getting engines and parts after they attacked Ukraine. This reminds me of Apple suing Samsung for patent infringement, thus increasing their own parts cost.

Life sucks when you're stupid.

Yesterday there was a customer at work who was mad at us that he had to wait because he was a day late for his appointment.

Explaining to him that his appointment had been for the prior day did not penetrate his dense cranial armor.

Got to love the idiots.

I kind of half-hoped that there would be a miggim in today's lineup, some asinine bully who gets his jollies by abusing someone who can't fight back; boy, would he have gotten a surprise!

But I'm glad that didn't happen, because this way I was able to go to work and do my job properly, putting in an honest effort and not being a screw-off. Heck, I sold a lot of tech support today, without half trying.

Never know--might want a good reference from them some day.

But! I'm really tired, and I have nine days before I must report to work at 6 AM in Bolingbrook. In the next week I hope to restore the Fiero to full function, because it's got to be done.

It's a party!
