I miss food service

Yeah, having one of *those* days.  And it's not the residents; it's the fucking staff.

*grumblebitchwhinemoancomplain*

I mean, seriously.  Three staff members go on an hour and a half break on the clock, and I'M the one getting interrogated  as to why I got "let them do it"?  What was I supposed to do?  Knee check them as they tried to leave?  And THAT would have only worked had I known they were leaving.  And, uh, I'm the new girl here.

Yeah, and that's the Cliffs Notes version of the day.  If I had thought Kent wouldn't have a stroke, I would have called a cab on my lunch break and just come home.

Hell, what are they gonna do?  Fire me?  I'm starting to think it's as impossible there to get fired as it was at McAlister's.  Which is really scary, considering this isn't sandwiches we're dealing with.

I just have to make it through tomorrow.  And I will.  Because then I have two days off.  I'm already thinking a trip to Carrboro is going to be required.  I hope the weather cooperates.  I could use another set or two of scrubs (and, hey, with $2 tops and $1 at PTA Thrift, I could get enough so that I don't feel like I am constantly doing laundry, which I really don't have time for these days, anyway).  And, yes, an afternoon hanging out at Krave and writing in my paper journal would probably be good therapy.

Not to mention cheaper than therapy.  ;)

Gods, I'm tired.  And jealous of Kent.  He's been off for the past two days.  I don't know how he manages to get so well rested and refreshed, and I come away from two days feeling like they were woefully short.  Hell, he made turkey and ham gumbo from scratch (I do love my freezer.  And our shared, almost pathological obsession with making stock).  It was lovely to come home to, but when was the last time *I* had enough spoons to spend the day puttering in the kitchen?

(Snarky inner voice says, "Well, maybe if you weren't unofficially in charge of every household chore that isn't taking out trash and recycling.  Other snarky inner voice says, "Yeah, and who let that happen?"  Third snarky inner voice says, "Doing laundry at 5:30 in the morning before work just frees up time for...something, right?")

I need to remember that he makes food for the residents.  I do everything else for them (why am I sensing a weird theme here?).

Gods, I miss food service.

It's never easy to have to adapt to new frustrations with a new employer, but I think I can make some sense of it. The tenured employees and those in authority might be testing you to see how much stress and strain you can take. Though I understand that it's technically a legitimate pursuit, it does make being the new employee so much more stressful. I've experienced difficulty with this at some past employers.


*hugs* I hope you get well rested soon and develop your endurance.

This job sounds a hell of a lot more stressful than food service. I know it's a job that speaks to Doing For Others, but I hope you won't forget to Do For Yourself in the process. Put on your oxygen mask first, you know?

Anyway, hope it all works out for you! Hugs.
