Wednesday I had my first Hebrew class on Second Life. It was kind of annoying because I told the teacher I still recognised some of the letters but she insisted on teaching them anyway, had to tell me the name and the sound. It was basically review, except that I didn’t remember any of the vowels, But I felt like I was being treated like a six year old.
I just updated Safari and apparently there is spell check. Well not spell check, so much as…if you spell something…or grammar apparently, wrong, it will underline in red. i don’t like it.
I came home on Friday. I went to get my schedule. I couldn’t find this week’s schedule, only Sat and Sun, so I said to someone “Is next week’s schedule not up yet or am I blind?”…forgetting that the blind guy that works there was a few feet away from me…oops! I don’t think he heard me, but I still felt bad. In case anybody is wondering what a blind person would do at a restaurant, he rolls silverware.
I told the girl who makes the schedules that I wanted a lot of shifts. i didn’t expect her to schedule me for nine shifts in five days, but I was wrong lol.
Saturday night was my first shift. I made $123 in tips, including having given away four of my tables, including a seven top. Also, somebody i worked with at Rainforest is now working at Red Robin, but he didn’t remember me. I was also there until midnight (doing sidework, not still waiting tables) then had to open at 10am the next day. BTW if anyone is ever wondering if they have lots of random small cuts on their hands, I suggest cutting lemons lol.
They got new POS machines last week, but I am calling them POA machines for Pieces of Awesome. They are the best. We also now have one more than we did before, which is great because more people can use them. Now if only we could get one more bev station heh.
I have $68 in my checking account right now, so I figured I would have to make $300 in tips if I wanted to be able to pay for my next month’s rent, electricity, cable, and minimum payment on my credit card. I worked a total of 40 hours and made $356 in tips, since it was pretty slow all week (with the exception of Saturday night). Apparently i no longer have direct deposit, so I won’t be able to get the check for my hourly earnings this week until next I am home, but the money I made from tips will be enough for what I need. Then I will be getting my financial aid check in a couple months, God willing. I also now know what it’s like to get triple sat. It’s not very fun.
I also gained a lot of weight in the past couple months (well 7lbs, but because I am so short, if I gain or lose a couple pounds it’s really noticeable), because of all the sugar I’ve been eating and now all the Red Robin food. Time to go back to just drinking water and not soda or freckled lemonade lol.
Right now the plan is to go back to Chuckvegas tomorrow night after dinner. But ti’s snowing right now and is supposed to snow tomorrow too. If it’s snowing tomorrow night I’ll go back on Friday morning, I guess. If it’s real bad I just won’t go back and see if I can pick up a shift on Saturday night. I don’t want to go back yet, but I want to go to Anne and Ted’s wedding.
Also I accidentally ripped my Chanukah banner so I went to Walgreens to get a new one since that’s where I got it last year. I went to one in Lincolnshire since 10 it was on the way home from work (though the one near my hours is on the way too) and 2) Lincolnshire is a very Jewish area. They had a pretty big Chanukah section but no banner. So I go to the one near my house, the same one I got the banner at last year, and I don’t see the Chanukah section. So I ask someone who works there where they Chanukah decorations are and she takes me to the seasonal aisle and says “here are our candles” and they’re like Yankee scented candles. Psh. People are ignorant.
It’s so weird to not be at work right now since I have been there so much lol. And I’m tired. And it feels weird to be able to sit down. Oh, also my GM asked who started calling me “Jammy” since pretty much everyone at work calls me that and I hate it. He asked so he could fire them lol. Now the person who started it finally asked if I like it and apologised, but it’s too late lol. I wouldn’t want him to get fired anyway, because he’s the one who hired me hehe.
