I just got myself a part-time job. Sort of. My friend Sharon runs the record store I used to work at. She was just given a massive repricing project and has almost no help. I told her I would help her out if she needed me. She just called and took me up on the offer. She also said she contacted the home office asking if she was allowed to hire temporary help for this. She got approval from HR, but hasn't heard a thing from payroll about what she's allowed to pay. I don't really give a shit because I was going to do it for free. So if I get enough for a couple of cds, I'll be thrilled! Got my eye on the new Teddy Thompson, the new Marc Broussard and the new Suzanne Vega right now.
The timing is perfect, too, because I took tomorrow off from work for a doctor visit. I'll probably go in shortly after that and work until I can't take it anymore. Earlier this month would have been my 16th anniversary at the store if I'd stayed. I've been gone for a little more than a year now. I don't miss it.
