dis' N dat'

I received the phone call today telling me I got the job at Joann's. :o) It is kinda scary starting a job after not having one for so long. Training starts Oct 4th. The Mgr is on vacation, so it is scheduled after she gets back...I wonder what happens to my quilt class? I suppose I need to find out if I can work around class....
Since hubby posted about his *favorite* store....And it was once considered my 2nd fav store...I will say, that I am very disappointed with the new Wally World! I have only been back into the new store, that we waited so long to open, a few times. I *don't* like going there! :o( The employees are always to busy socializing to take care of the customer. Most customers are of the type that they think everyone owes them. They don't have any respect for the merchandise or other customers.... :o/ each time I have been in there (other than the first time) the store has been trashed! Funny thing, my sis said that the old WW, is much nicer now and the employees are always happy! :o~ There are 2 more WW opening near by...I wonder if when they open my store will be better??
I am sure there was more....But my brain is short circuiting today....

Yay! You got the job! You already have the store memorized so working there shouldn't be too hard, right? ;) Plus you are familiar with some of the "crafty" stuff from your stamping. You'll do fine!

Congratulations! Having that discount will be nice when it comes to buying more quilting supplies, eh?

Enjoy -- hope you get to meet some nice co-workers.

I already know my job will be at the cutting counter! I am afraid that I will cut something wrong ! lol I also know that I will learn how to operate the cash register, just incase. I suppose being behind the counter with sharp objects is pretty safe huh? :o)
And Marie, I am already pretty well known by the other employees. lol. I ran in there yesterday for a quilting emergency for a friend. Several of them asked where the kids were and wanted to know how I got out without them. "Um, I'm at the post office!?" :o~ lol I really *DID* go to the post office! Only took a short detour on the way home! :o)

Sounds like a dream job! Hope the hours work out and that it's a fun/not-too-stressful thing.

Wait!!! You mean Stuff Mart clerks don't get paid to socialize with their co-workers? What fun is there in serving patrons?

Congrats on the job, too!
