Well, that was ghastly. · 10:07pm Jun 23rd, 2014

I switched from my old gas station job to one inside the store doing night stocking.

After barely a week of being too slow, knocking things over and having to re-assemble them, putting things in the wrong place, trying to fulfill the most contradictory orders I've ever received, maybe getting two hours of sleep a day in my busy, busy house, slicing my hands open on things, being run ragged for eight hours a night and still getting everything wrong, exacerbating a couple of joint issues I've been having, and feeling like a worthless millstone to every worker around me, I walked into the new store manager's office and got out: "I-If possible, I'd like to t-transfer back toβ€”" before I broke down sobbing uncontrollably like a pathetic thirty-one year-old man-baby. Right in front of this perfect stranger of a boss.

And that's how I got my old job back. Today.

What does this mean for you? It means I'm a giant wuss who blew a chance to make more money.

I'm Watching You Because:

You said or did something interesting or funny somewhere, wrote something I liked, and/or you seem to be an interesting or cool person.

I'm actually really shy, have difficulty articulating myself at times, and dislike saying the same thing "(You seem interesting/cool") over and over again.

Hence, any inquiries about why you're being followed shall likely be met with goofy jokes, because indulging my bizarre sense of humor is actually far easier than explaining myself.

...That probably didn't help.

Thanks for the follow. May I ask why?

Thanks for the watch! May I ask how you found me?

I like being told that I'm interesting/cool, but I apparently am not going to be getting told that, so I'm going to instead content myself by staring at you across the room in an attempt to make you uncomfortable. :rainbowkiss:

Thanks very much for the watch! I'm happy to imagine my own goofy joke, so no worries there. :twilightsmile:
