Movie and cleaning day!  
I'm a little bit frustrated. I asked for Halloween weekend off. I put it in the "big book of people who want time off" and was even told that no one else had asked for that weekend yet. Mr. Storemanager said that there was a very very good chance I'd get it.
But, I'm scheduled for Sat. 1-6pm. Midshifts are good. I like midshifts. I don't get many. I don't mind closing, either. In fact, all kinds of work are good. I was really hoping that my shifts wouldn't be on the days I asked off, though :/ Akuma has to work, too... so... This is just GREAT. -..-*
There are going to be people at my house and neither Akuma nor myself are going to be there. Not good.
I'm going to have to talk to the manager, and see if it was just a simple mistake... Maybe he forgot to check the book or somthing...
Or see if he meant it. :/ If I'm lucky, the store will be over on hours, and I will get my shift cut, like it was today. I usually don't like when my hours are cut.. (Don't get me wrong. I love not being at work. Work's not bad, but being a bum at home is better. I just don't like cut hours because cut hours=cut paycheck)
Worst case scenario: Mr. Manager says that I have to work, and that it wasnt' a mistake. Maybe I'll be able to trade a shift or somthing... dunno. Probably not. No one likes working weekends. So, Akuma& I will have to delegate a trustworthy person to be house nazi for a few hours, and make sure nothing gets broken or accidentally pocketed. (Most likely N-kun)
Best case scenario: Mr. Manager says it's a mistake.. (But I will more thank likely still have to work, which, at this point, does me no good anyway, and might as be the worst case...) He did this to me at Animefest too, you know. I told him I wouldn't be driving into town until late Sunday, and would PREFER not to work until Monday, so I could.. you know... drive an hour and a half into town, late afternoon, and then unpack. So.. what happens? Someone calls up to my house Sun.. not more than 30 min after I get into town, and they beg me to come into work early, since I was obviously scheduled that closing shift anyway.
I love Mr. Manager... but I swear he doesn't pay attention when people ask for time off... I really can't be too mad at him, because he's got a lot to do.. being store manager and all....
But I just don't understand. I don't work many shifts! Maybe two or three a week, tops! All I wanted was to see if he could schedule my shifts around that weekend. :( I don't work weekends often, so he obviously has other employees that are open on weekends... so I don't know why I always have so much trouble getting time off.
I don't know. I'll have to find out if he's going to be there tomorrow so I can go in and talk to him or somthing. :( I don't like the idea of Akuma and I both at work while people are at my house unattended.

So.. that brings me back to cleaning. I still have a lot to do. Hopefully.. if everything goes well, I can get the kitchen clean again, and finish my Buttercup dress. I don't have much left to do on it.. but I need to hurry up and get those costumes done. After I finish my dress...everything else is all on Akuma. When I'm in the mood to sew, I can't ever get him to try the shirt on, so I can't fit it to him. IT's frustrating me that it's turning out like shit and there's nothing I can do about it, aside from buy new fabric and re-sew the whole goddamned thing.

I don't think the costumes are going to get done. Akuma's isn't wearable at all. There is no shirt.. there are no pants... I've made everything I can without getting measurements on him. I need to make some stupid pants... and I have to make his bandanna, and I have to make the shirt.. and I have to make a belt and a frog-thing for the sword. I just don't think it's going to happen.

Oh.. and Onmyoji is very silly. I don't regret buying it, but that doesn't make it any less of a silly movie.

*hugs* You're so much more forgiving to your manager than I am. Sev scedualled me Otafest(calgary) weekend when I'd booked it off, so I told them to go fuck themselves and quit. ^_^ And that was just for Otafest!

Sorry to hear about the costumes. *kisses you* I wish I could help, but I'm up to my elbows as well... and in Canada.... *laughs*

:O
You are up to your elbows in Canada? XD

Yeah... I like this job, though.. and I've only been at this one for 2 months or so. I really don't want to quit, because it's a nice job, and I had a lot of trouble finding one... Since I like everyone, it's hard to stay upset.. especially when it could be an honest mistake. As much as I want to get pissy about it, I'm just going to have to try to be patient until I get a chance to talk to the manager :)

yeah.. There are many of you that I do trust with the house... That's why we're not thinking about calling everything off. If there wasn't anyone we could trust to help keep things in order, we'd just be forced to call everything off, or send everyone home early, since we'd have to be gone. Since there are trustworthy people, though, we can let people stay. Doesn't make me any less nervous.. :( But I trust you guys will keep the place from burning down.
