I Quit!

131/365, originally uploaded by airrikajswan.

I went to work last night. Thats right, the first day of my new job (fancy hotel security). It ended as quickly as it started. As you can see by the picture, I will not be returning this evening.

Why you ask?

Well I'll tell you...

First the uniform sucks ASS. The top is a tan short sleeve button up blouse that is hot as hell. So ugly. It just didn't fit well - so it looked bad too. And the pants.. oh the pants...The pants were terrible, I took the last one of the size I needed - only to find out the top button was missing... and when I came home I realized I had a huge hole in the crotch. It was probably there when i first tried on the pants and I didn't even know it. How embarrassing. O well, I'm sure everyone loved my purple undies.

Second I was bored to tears. The shift is at night and all you do is walk around with a little wand you swipe at certain checkpoints. whoopdefreakindo. Now, I knew it would be boring.... but my god, I didn't even see a guest the whole night.

Third, I think I walked 6miles. No that's not a bad thing (yey exercise), but I got turned around 600 times, my feet hurt and the little blisters on my little toes are about ready to burst! Not to mention you have to walk that 6 miles in pants and suit jacket. This is Arizona people, let me remind you. (yes the job requires going outside at times.)

Fourth. I just hate it and can't think of an appropriate reason. I don't want to suck it up for the money because I HATE not being happy! I think I'm much better at customer service oriented jobs. You know, jobs where I actually get to interact with real live people - and not just the smoke hoebag training me. Who smoked every single second we walked outside.

I'm back to babysitting for a living until a "real" job finds me/I find it.

Sheesh, I am a fucking college graduate! UGH.


  1. Well I wish you luck in finding a new job.

    Hoebag? Ha ha! I haven't heard that term in a long time. Thanks for the giggle.

  2. haha no prob! I've been cussing a lot lately :-/

  3. You will find something out there! Just be happy you have the option to not work for just money. When you get old like me, have a couple kids and a mortgage you work at anything you can even when you are stuck at a job you hate, like I currently find myself.
