First thing to happen at work was the handing out of ID cards, I call them that but they were just white rectangles with first names on them. I didn’t get one, suspected that signalled the end for me but pushed it to the back of my head, just spent the rest of the day feeling bitter at being left out. Guy threw keys at me, failed to catch again, it was underarm and he was close, I wasn’t watching them, just expected them to fall into my hands if I did the catching motion.
Friendly guy from the arcade who spoke to for a few minutes spoke to me again while I was working, this time about drugs and pets, I had some input regarding the pets. Gonna at least buy some weed now I have the means, maybe check out the ‘Sylvia’ he was on about too, it’s apparently what all the NEETs are doing these days. He came by again later in the day, I stuck my hand, waving to acknowledge him, he thought I wanted to chat again but fortunately his attention was quickly swayed.
Couple of ex-staff visited the park, got some acknowledgment, cool, don’t know what they were doing there, surely there are better ways to spend a Sunday. Think they maybe wanted a go on the ride I was operating, in hindsight I probably should’ve let them.
End of the day I picked up a rota for next week without looking at it, assumed I would just be working the weekends. Went to ASDA before departing for the bus stop, on my way I saw half my colleagues gathered, having a smoke, I walked passed the pack without looking at them, chavvy pig saw me though and shouted some stuff, think she called me “pishy”, asked about my weekend and if I’d bought underwear. Didn’t give her the satisfaction of a response, didn’t really care, walked on without looking at the beast. Don’t know why she was being a bitch, there has been some politeness over the last few days.
Took a look at the rota out of boredom on the bus, couldn’t find me name, guess I’ve been essentially fired, my hours have been reduced to zero. It was a shit job, glad to have an excuse to no longer work it but it’s a real insult to no longer he required for this bottom of the barrel gig, ignored my employment rights, accepted less pay than I was due but instead of quitting, I’m fired, fucked up that there are more people willing to put go with this treatment. Not losing out on much in terms of wages, would maybe like to know why exactly I was sacked but it probably comes down to the operations director just being a slime ball. Fucking sucks, I was loyal, worked 15 days straight once, I expected a little something back from my employers. Blames on me, should’ve known the type of arrangement it was and taken advantage of it where I could.
I know the animals from the amusement park will read this so I’ll explicitly say, the people with some seniority were all based (manager, pregnant one, ginger one, to a much lesser extent the old guy and crutches), guy who got fired for being creepy, black guy, two of the guys that quit/got fired were also alright but that was before the drama. Rest of them I don’t give a shit about or can go fuck themselves. The one who trained me was the nicest of all, she wasn’t a supervisor or anything so she didn’t have to be which makes me appreciate it all the more, quite eager to help out too, again, she didn’t have to.
Need to return my uniform for the deposit, next weekend, I guess, don’t want to see the manager, feel like he might be disappointed or disgusted by me. Pretty sure it was all down to the ops director cutting me loose.
At work I saw the friendly Polish guy, stuck up my hand to great him and mouthed “Hey”, he ignored me completely, looked down at his phone. Possible that he was offended by me not continuing to work in the arcade, believing I thought nothing of his friendliness. Other theory is that he was just performing his job well, making his subordinate/colleague feel comfortable and now that that is no longer my position, he no longer has any commitment to me. Choosing to believe the later is my preferred option, fuck him, he’s just like the rest.
Went 12-1 in the Hearthstone arena last night, proud accomplishment, today however I went 1-3.
Chinese Chad is still playing his guitar and singing, I can hear him from the other corner of the house, it’s annoying but it feels great knowing Chad is even more annoyed and he will absolutely reach his breaking point during the year.
Blog is public again because why the fuck not? Only went private to keep my job and spare peoples feelings.
