I Hate That Place¶
I don’t know why I agreed to work today but I did. No sooner had I got there Andy H (Deputy Manager) was on my back about not working hard enough. I felt like turning round and saying “I am here cos you asked me to be, if your not happy with my work then its your fault, live with it” but i didn’t. After Bread/Dairy and freezers it was time to advise on the computer problems buggin’ the staff. Firstly it was the ancient EPOS system I suspect to be running either a custom OS, syncom or Unix. Whatever the OS it wasnt responding properly. You know its usual operators are not trained when they dont know how to enter the ‘*’ sign using the shift + 8 keys. That done i was needed again to show Andy H how to shade in a cell in Excel. You see how little computer skills you need to get by in a supermarket management position. The grim day was lightened by Hollie being around. Although she hasnt been speaking to me online of late its still nice to speak to females and get a response from general conversation.
When it came to bring the trollies in it was the security guard who proved best at fiddling the trolly locks with the key off of a corned beef tin. Somehow I dont trust these ‘Security’ people. I managed to set the alarm off when i broke the beam of the PIR (Passive Infra-Red) detector on the main door of the store (Silly me, lol). Only 6hrs on wednesday to look forward to now. Lucky me.
