It's really a lot better than my job was last year... I get paid less, but the working environment is much more comfortable/flexible. If I need a day off, I just tell them and they let me go. Just like that. Of course, I don't get paid for them, but I wasn't expecting to, either. The last few days at the park have been almost unbearable-- it's so freaking hot, just sitting there! We all get so sweaty and disgusting... bleh. At least we all understand that it's not our fault we're sweating! *laughs* I'm wearing my bathing suit underneath my uniform tomorrow so that I can go take a quick dip when times get slow. I'd ask them about giving Jen a job, but I think we have too many workers as it is... sometimes, just so we look busy, our superiors send the boys out on "walks" or in the big yellow park truck. *laughs* The last time my friend Chris had to take a walk, he wound up in his car with the air conditioner on high. Lucky, lucky, lucky. Did I mention that he took Driver's Ed with me last summer? He was in my lecture class.
Well, tomorrow my hours are 11-7, so I guess I should be skipping off. Today with the wedding and everything (my cousin Joey got hitched!), I've had a very, very long day. There were some grand reunions with cousins of years passed... and sorry to say there weren't any cute unrelated guys around at the party, although there was a nice looking waiter. I smiled at him, but that's pretty much it. Oof. I think I need a nice, looooong night's sleep before I get to work tomorrow, otherwise yours truly will be a zombie. Hope everyone had a kick-ass July 4th, despite the news of the shooting at LAX.
Remind me that next time I have a funny story to post about work. I'd go into it now, but I really want to post this before the 4th of July has passed! G'nite, godspeed... and I think I have Saturday off. Who wants to see me? *sniffle* My parents might force me to go to some party upstate with them, but it all depends on when I'm supposed to be working on Sunday.
