Holy cow guys. For those of you not on facebook/my aim buddy list, I didn't die. I... well, I honestly haven't had anything to complain about in a long time. I left the old restaurant (THANK GOD) and now work in a group of smaller restaurants in fantasyland and tomorrowland. I mostly work at the fantasyland locations, and everything has been going great. The managers
are awesome for the most part, most of my coworkers and supervisors and laid back and
easy to talk to, and everything's just chill. It's like I get to be the Dude and abide while at work,
rather than dealing with all the shenanigan's of the last place.
That being said, there is ONE person that I absolutely DO NOT get along with at this place. We'll call her Bathroom Break, since her given nickname at work is the code for that (also a character from Naruto, but I digress). She's, quite honestly, the meanest, rudest individual I've ever had to work with. She takes her sweet time doing EVERYTHING, she's only about half a step above rude to the GUESTS... it's unbelievable. I'm honestly surprised a guest hasn't complained about her yet. For instance, everytime she's on register I swear she barely talks to anybody, and her voice is clearly annoyed at the fact that she has to deal with people. When she has to run pretzels, it takes her at least twice as long as anyone else to do it. =| Seriously.
The worst, though, is how she treats her coworkers. She has a bad habit of showing up to position only to take a bathroom break as soon as possible afterward (hence the nickname). It's, like, constant breaks with her. She has the bladder of a hamster with an enlarged prostate. One of my good friends who now works here has already told a manager that he just CAN NOT deal with her and to please keep them separated while working, and he's about the nicest guy you'll ever meet. She even was rude to coworkers from another area.
One of our locations is a cart. It's in fantasyland between two very popular rides, one which involves spinning and the other involving a stuffed animal of sorts. It's situated next to two carts from outdoor foods, who handles all the little carts with popsicles and popcorn and stuff. Ours sells, primarily, pretzels and churros, but we all have the ability to sell anything from any of the three carts on one register, and usually let other people pass or get them items (if we're not busy) as needed. Not her, though. One lady told me that she REFUSED to let anyone get their own food from her, forcing them to wait for her to get it for them, essentially keeping other guests waiting on her for TWO OTHER LINES.

On a lighter note, I've seen plenty of fun things happen, such as Alice and the White Rabbit taking kids to ride the tea cups (SO JEALOUS), and having various funny encounters. The best one was the girl who asked me if the tea cups were right behind her (they were). I told her "No, those are the coffee cups" to which I got "Oh. Where are the teacups then?" I swear I would have burst out laughing if I hadn't put my head onto the counter as quickly as I could. XD
Well, hopefully spring break/summer will give me more to rant about. But for now, have a magical day everybody!
