    I got a job!

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Torana, Sep 19, 2007.

    Well I am pleased to say that I have finally got myself a job! YAY I get cash in hand as well which is really good, but I still have to declare my earnings to the government as I am on a single parenting payment.

    But early hours this morning at exactly 2am I got back from Perth and stopped in to visit a friend to talk to her about some things and so she knew I got home safely. She informed me that her neighbour wanted to know if I could work for her.

    So of course I said yes. So this Saturday night at 6pm I begin working and go through until 2am on Sunday morning. All the work I will be doing will be this kind of shift as I am going to be working behind a bar serving alcohol.

    I am so excited as I haven't worked now in four years basically.

    Yeah well anyways sorry for the new thread but I was just so excited and had to share it with someone :p:D:rolleyes::eek:

    Ah, yes, the yellow, I prefer the orange, seems less, criminally bright and ugly.

    Yes Banzai you are that obvious.

    And I agree the orange isn't as bad and the green blends in well too. But alas I was doomed with the yellow banana looking rain gear and I hated it too. I looked like a banana!! lol I miss working outdoors though. Orange is definately better!!!!

    It is hard to do really. I have to memorize price listings and where everythig is and stuff like that. Plus you get sore hands from opening bottles and cans all the time.

    And putting up with sleezy drunks ain't ever fun. But yeah it will be great fun I think. Especially since me and my best friend are working together and know a lot of the people that will be there already lol

    Yes well that was to be expected Banzai. The main thing is that you get the money and do spoil her cause she deserves to be spoilt :)
