Yes, thank goodness it's Tuesday.  Know why?  Well, I really don't expect you guys to know why.  I've worked the last seven days and today is the first of my three day "weekend" as I'll call it.  Let me tell you, it's been a horrible...horrible weekend...

First off Saturday was just busy as all get out with very little coverage on our sale's floor.  Sunday...Sunday was hell that just kept getting worse and worse.  It started off with two people covering the sales floor at 7am.  That's sometimes more then what I am used to...  Well let's see...  I went to check who was coming in to work and what times...I come to find out that no one basically was coming in until 11am that day...

What the hell??  Seriously...how can you expect two people to cover the entire store when there is two people to cover it...you can't...you just can't.  To top it off...I have to watch Electronics and Jewlery and those can't be unattended..so if I went on break, the other would have to watch and there is no way a person can do hardware/fabrics/sporting goods ...you can't.  I bother the service desk and I am able to get a cashier to cover me about 9am that morning for break...I was hungry :(

The cashier comes back and this couple wants to buy a ring and want it set out to be sized just as I am about to go on break...well I have to help them.  So I do so, and it's another 20 mintues before I go on break.  8 minutes later...power goes off...yay...I shorten my break and head out to the floor, and tell customers that they need to go up front towards the doors.  I had one lady ask "Why?"  You serious lady?  It's fucking dark in the store...only emergency lights are on...Do you really need to ask why?

Well she goes up front and I go to inform the other group I saw heading towards fabrics and auto. Trying to get there attention was less then likely to happen and I told them that they needed to head up to the front of the store for safety reasons.   "Are the cash registers working?"  >.>  Why do I get the idiots??  Why???  Of course they are working...cause you know...the lights are totally off...meaning that there is nothing wrong with the power and the Cash Registers surly are wind and water powered...

My assistant manager of the day kicked all the customers out of the store at this point and locked the doors.  <3 Yay...now we don't have to worry about shoplifters.  The funny thing also I saw...people outside were still trying to open the doors...not like the building is dark right?

Anywho, power comes back on about 30 minutes later and we open the doors 10 minutes later after the cash registers have time to reboot.  My hand scanner isn't working and I can tell you...you never know how much you use something until you can't.  So I have to hand key in serial numbers and such on iPods cause they are too small to scan from the regular base.  So I get my lunch finally about 12:30pm and come back about 1:30.  I should have someone at 3pm so I only had an hour and a half by myself.

Ten minutes till 3, my photo associate comes back to me and tells me to go to break.  I told them that my coverage comes in at 3 and I'll take my break then.

"That's going to be a problem..." She said.

At that moment...I sighed, finished checking out the customer I had and looked at her.  "He called off didn't he?"

No need to reply...I already knew...What a wonderful day this was...the closer called off and no one else was going to be there from 4-midnight.  Well we got it figured out and I still left at 4pm when I was supposed to.

That night I played some more FFXI to relieve my stress...about 6pm...I see a shout "A Goldstruck Gigas" Do you need it?  Briareus fight!

Hell to the yeah!  I jumped on whm and joined up...

An hour later, and much...much to the realization...We weren't going to fight Briareus...instead...going to farm the Key Items...then pop him...I didn't mind...I have the stones...but one person didn't...

So we get all the items about 3 hours later...and a few said "I only have 60 minutes left"  and another said "I have 34 minutes left...your shout said nothing about farming for the key items first...just said the Boss fight."

The next statement made me sick to my stomach.

"Alright, I'll replace you."

Ya..the fight gonna take more then 34 minutes...but the other option was to let him stay outside and have him join in when the NM was down enough.  I mean...it's not like he didn't help get the key items for the alliance leader..right?

The PLD said "You can't expect to get a free ride for the NM Boss."

The way I see it, the group was misled into farming the Key Items, and no one was told how long that was going to take because there is no way of knowing when a key item that isn't 100% to drop will drop...another thing...it's still not really a free ride to the Boss especially if you still have to kill the boss.  The NMs to get the key items are not that hard...really...they aren't.  You really have to work on the final boss because it doesn't mess around.

The person who only have about 34 minutes replied, "Thanks...it really makes me happy that I helped you all get they key items."  And he was kicked after that.  Kaze was RNG in the group, and he left because of all the BS that whole mishap was.  He didn't say anything and I may be a little vengeful...but I /salute him for doing so :)  Because he was the only RNG, and the alliance leader wanted a special WS from him :)

Come to find out...about an hour into the boss fight and such.  All this one ws at a time was just to try for a fucking atma...what the hell???  I didn't come to help you get an atma...I came to kill the damn boss.  Do the ATMA with your ls.  /rant

After it turned "black" we went full out on it and kited it around the lake from there.  The BLMs would nuke and such...and oh one thing to add...

Girlygirl...I swear English must not be her first language...just seem broken...choppy...and just wouldn't answer when asked questions period...  Well she wanted me on my whm to cure the DDs as they TPed.  I don't mind that, that's fine.  She told us to TP off flies though...so we started...and linked like 6 and we all died, and she goes on to say "Pull one and if link comes WHM repose them."

Ya...like my macro didn't tell you I did that...  "Repose Just used it.  << <t> >>"

Ya...so didn't use it..

There were pixies on the other side of the lake...and those don't link/agro.  So a few people said to just TP off those, and that taru said 'No!  TP OFF FLIES"  fuck that...  As i disagreed with that this "Omnivirus" chick goes to say "How hard is it to cure DD and repose links?"

Hello??  Excuse me?  whm/sch repose...and sleep with dark arts... I do not have an AOE sleep to begin with.  And then proceeded to yell at that taru Girlygirl again.

She started with "You listen!  You tp off flies!"

"No you listen!  Flies fucking link and pixies do not!  You want another Wipe??? Go for it!"

Omni again when on to say something and i said in party "If it's so easy why don't you cure them?"

She/he/it ignored me and after we started killing the damn nm we take it down about 45 minutes later...and 2am now...finally I left without a word and was done from there.

Well...I'm done ranting so I'll just leave this blog at that.  :)

Just Another Day

It was such a wonderful evening... not really...

Dynamis - Jeuno was a wreck.  That zone chewed us up and spat us out and then proceeded to stomp there feet and wipe at the front door.  Only good thing that really came of this zone is I am now 5/5 on PUP gear.  yay me.  woo~

Tonight though we had a few new people in our mix, and we pulled the zone a little different...the results...second wipe we had to HP cause we repoped the stones from the AH.  Myself...i HPed about 3 times...thrid time I just went to bed because we had less then twenty minutes left...and I wasn't going to just sit there for 10 for a chance at rng hat.

Work was...work.  Just a long day and tomorrow gonna be twice as long.  There is only going to be me and my other co worker this whole weekend...know what that means?  No...but I'll tell you.  It means I'll have to fight to have someone cover my lunch periods :/  It's gonna be twice as hard because they will most likely have to watch Jewelry and or Photo.  Blah...

Gonna cut this short tonight...I haven't slept well in five nights...and I need to have some sleep before I get up at 6:30am...  Sleep well all.

I'm such a bad blogger...

Wow...I really need to visit you all more often here. I haven't been up to much but working and playing ffxi...the usual. I placed the song above just because it's how I feel at the moment. A lot is going on in my life and I haven't been a good friend to a lot of you, and you know who you are :( I'm very deeply sorry for not being a good friend. I'm just an airhead and a lot going on. On a lighter note...i'm still singing to keep my spirits higher. Also...come one? You can't say that Three Days Grace Nightcore isn't Epic :) Gotta love this song, but I kinda like there softer/sadder song on there latest cd. "Last to Know" Man...that song touches base with me so much...but in the end, I know things will be okay because people will see how "he" was/is and will never change.

Let's see... My birthday is coming up soon...I'll be 22 this year :) Happy Halloween~ It saddens me though, because I'll see xmas stuff on the shelves before my birthday comes and goes :( Darn you holiday madness D:

What else...what else...

Work has been alright. A lot of stress from both idiot customers and just the fact that we are lacking coverage in both Electronics and Photo lab currently. I mean seriously...people do your research before you come in and then huff and puff about the price. A couple came in to look at the "Wii" and I told them the price is 199 for just the system. And went on to say that if the two of them wanted to play at the same time (The Sports Pack and the Sports Resorts that comes with it) They would need another Controller, Nunchuck, and Motion Plus, which would cost around another 70 from there. Then they went on to say they wanted the "wii fitness" and saw the software on in the case. I told them if they wanted the Wii Fit that it would be another 99 from there. Which they went on to argue about it only being 19.98 in the case. Well that's the software people...you still need the board to stand on... ugh, and then went on to say, "I only state the obvious but your TVs aren't working and you wont be selling anything like that." Which I then proceeded to tell him that 1. The tv over the Wii case doesn't even have a system hooked up to it, and that any of the "promotional ads" were back from 2008, and the only game they show that we still currently sell is Mario Party 8...which is only a 10 second clip and still doesn't make the game leave our case any faster. 2. The TV wall which had our other TVs weren't working because there was some issues with the signal in the back office, which we can't get into unless the people working in the office are there, which they weren't. He then proceeded to say in a tone that was implying how stupid we were, "Well since you're too busy to do it then you'll lose your sales." Guess what bud...three TVs sold earlier, and that's more then what we usually sell in the morning! HA!

At that point, i asked my associate for the keys, and remote, flipped the tv on. Walked away from the couple without another word, and went to the TV wall and proceeded to turn off all the TVs, which the man followed me and watched me, I still ignored him at that point and he left. I'm sorry, I don't get paid to deal with rude people and I can sure as hell deal it back.

After fuming for a little bit to myself my co-worker asked me what was up and then we laughed because I'm not one to blow up at work and then proceeded to how she would react if she had to deal with them.

On another note...FFXI is still the number one source of entertainment. I'm leveling BRD for the time being. I had a party invite the other day, and let me tell you, waste of time. This WHM invited me to party in Qufim...i really didn't want to do Qufim...but i figured the faster i get to the 30s, the less inclined to accepting a Qufim party I'll be. I'm level 26...and I need to practice distance and such for Mage's Ballad. So he insists that everyone go to Qufim immediately even though he only has three people in the party. What ever...so I go to qufim, and I end up getting killed by a weapon at the end of the tunnel right where the book and worms are. Well that WHM says "I have raise...brb" and that agrivated me. So i said in party, "While you're gone, I'm going to go and get some food real quick."

Another 5 minutes later I come back, I do have raise on, and in party that WHM seemed to have done a call, and I had been removed from party... WTF? So i raised up and asked him what was going on and why was I kicked, and he ignored me. So I told him in spite "Well i guess you're loss, I had a PL." and he replied with "Sorry, we're full." and at that point, I rested up, waiting for unweakened, and ran out in the middle of the tunnel. And I Foe Requiem a worm. He does Stone II on me and that WHM tries to cast cure II on me. I immediately put blockaid on so that no one can cure me. It may have taken me five minutes, but i soloed that damn worm using my songs and spells. They just stood by and watched. At that point my "friend" shows up and follows me around...and they proceed to check him thirty times over. So at this point, I Requiem another worm and start fighting it with blockaid off so that my friend can heal me and take hate. After i killed the second worm, I see there party running up and down the tunnel. There tanking following me around to "out claim" me and all I could do is laugh. "Am i really that threatening when provoke is faster?" As time goes by, they run back passed me with two Wights on them and my friend started to help them. I mean really...who the hell runs around qufim at level 19 during nighttime? Idiots...

Well going to try and level tonight :/ I want to start wearing my RSE gear and then go from there. Night everyone~
