Santa Pete is magic

They cut me in the middle of my break yesterday AND I had to go back after two for my check.

Note my lack of amusement.

Yeah, doubling down on applications.  I hate it for my residents, but I am SOOOO fucking out of there.

AND they had the nerve to try to call me in today.  Uh, no.  I have to take two buses to get in to work.  By the time I get there, it will almost be lunchtime.  Get a supervisor or a med tech off her ass and make her do the work.  And how do I know I won't get cut again?

Anyway, back to Pete.  He called yesterday afternoon, was thrilled to find me home, and wanted to know if I was available for crab legs and a viewing of Despicable Me 3.  Like that's  question.

The film was only showing in the ridiculously overpriced movie "palace" (which we both agreed was a little much, and should only be reserved THOSE FILMS.  However, he did inform me that the next Star Wars film will be one of those, and he and Kent had already discussed it, and they will be feeding me cocktails while I mourn the loss of my princess.  I love my guys).  And the crab place was closed.  :(    And Five Guys has just...disappeared.  So we went for dinner at Option #3 (which has amazing salads.  Which is exactly what I needed.  Yes, there are days that can only be fixed for me by a salad with eleventy-thirteen ingredients, accompanied by an incredibly high AC craft IPA).

The waiter was chatting me up and being entertained by Pete's roadie stories.  He nudged me under the table and I asked if they happened to be hiring.

I was brought a job application with the waiter's name scrawled on top.  And he brought the hiring manager over.  Who seemed quite enthusiastic that I would want (and have experience in) early morning prep.

Please, Goddess.  Please, please, please.  Get me back in a kitchen.

Hooray for Pete nudging you - it's hard to get back in the mindset of "remember to see if they're hiring" at any opportunity. Here's hoping you find something awesome soon!

Good luck with it, and all the other applications! You don't deserve to be jerked around.
