Pizza Pit is still better than Slemslations. That being said, there is something that's been bothering me about this place. That thing is Rude.
My schedule is always the same at PP, which is awesome because that lets me schedule time with friends and family. As Thanksgiving started rolling closer, I knocked on Rude's door. "Hey, I just wanted to ask if I could have a couple days off around Thanksgiving so I can go back to New York."
His response was "No, we need you here."
That sucked, I haven't seen my mom since August, but I understand if the shop doesn't want to let me off. He assured me that I'd have plenty of time to see my family for Christmas, since he knew that I was far from home and missing my family.
So I went on my merry way and did shop stuff. He posted the Thanksgiving schedule a couple days ago (this would be Sunday of Thanksgiving week) and lo and behold, I had three days off. In a row. My father had already left by the time to go to New York, but I was angry. I could've legitimately gone home, and spent the holiday with my family, but Rude hadn't told me ahead of time, and I didn't have money for a plane ticket saved up. If this happens over Christmas, I'll be very angry indeed.
Otherwise, things are going well. The way things go at the Pit is that we are very busy for a couple hours, then dead for the rest of the day. At first, I took the manuscript for my book with me so I could do some much-needed writing, but Rude got very angry for some reason about the whole thing, so I was barred from that. So I brought my knitting with me, and he approved. At least I'm getting a lot of Christmas presents out of the way doing my all-day knit-a-thons, but it would be nice to be able to do something a little more intellectually stimulating. My shifts are about 8-10 hours longer, and doing work for the shop takes up maybe a third of that time. There's only so many times that I can wipe down tables and the pizza cabinets and stuff. Ugh.
Expect a big Black Friday post. It'll be terrible.
Love, kisses and the hell I'm getting turkey this year,
