i have been so bored that i paced up and down the shop forcing myself to laugh endlessly during the half-hour periods when nobody comes in. i had some vague idea that it would create genuine happiness with brain chemicals and stuff.

just the other day i listed all the crisps and put them in order of caloric content. frazzles are really bad for you. i think skips won. you probably don't know what those are. oh well.

i've also been so hungry at work that i've used the tea making kettle to make a pot noodle (translation: ramen? i don't know) and scoffed it in the back room, peeking through the crack in the door. i later had to flatten the pot and smuggle out the evidence in a paper bag.

generally smoke or hide out in the bathroom

 

when i worked at fuddruckers I did the crossword puzzle every shift

I miss that shit

 

chinese restaurant I worked at the entire staff smoked hardcore

was no such thing as the wait 2 hours or w/e rule

one time when the tables were full the entire floor staff was outside smoking, myself included

generally consisted of them talking to each other in chinese chiefing cigs while we stood in a circle

 

bought weed for a dude there and he spoke maybe a handful of english

good times.

 

staring off into space though is by far the winner.

I get really squirrely when I have nothing to do. when I was a grocery specialist it seemed like there was always too much to do.
I like going to work to do work, and do it well, so when I get home, exhausted, I can be comforted knowing I put in some effort


at my current job I don't report to anyone and get to make my own schedule. I could make $15/hr off browsing the internet all day if I wanted, but I'd prefer not to

Smoke, take a long break in the bathroom playing games, post on the internet, and do some online shopping (but never actually buy anything).

I like to sing annoying songs to piss off the 7 other guys in my crew. 
 
Such hits like : "Ride wit me" by Nelly and  "Here I go again"

it got to the point where the boss told me he'd give me a dollar for every cig I picked up outside

which was generally like 30-40 cigs a night

he told me this in front of the other bussers

I picked them up generally but never asked for the money

in retrospect, and making $8 an hour, it was prob the dumbest decision I've made

 

 

one of the hibachi chefs went by 'ROCK', we never had one conversation but one day he started saying my name so I would say 'ROCK!' and then we would progressively say each others name louder for like 10x

this went on every shift

 

could write a book on that place, shit.  got drunk with a coworker between shifts and dude crashed into my moms car on the way back to work.  we had to finish the rest of the night like nothing happened.

I couldn't  call it into the police because he was drunk, had a prior record, etc.

the same guy took a bunch of the chinese dudes out on the town and they rolled their vehicle following him.

 

when he got fired he poured a full bottle of whiskey into the fish water fountain.

 

I went and visited him in prison shortly after where HE rolled his truck.

 

shit was wild.

 

another dude who looked like an abercrombie model came to work on acid on a regular basis.

 

prob won't forget that job to be sure.

I dream of finally biting the bullet.

Dream of murdering my idiot co-workers.

Imagine my co-workers finding my dead body on the dock out back.

sometimes i look through the customer information. it's a couple a years of data, including the shit employees type in when they're putting though orders for friends and whatnot. it goes by keyword/phone number search, so you could type in hilarious words like "farts" and "heeb" and see what comes up.

 

once, i put in an order for a "Big Booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooty" and it was so many o's that it crashed the system when i sent it to the makeline.

 

lots of free time at papa john's.
