Re: More Stuff

Well, they weren't ready for me to start Monday, but I got the new hire paperwork done Tuesday, and my brother and I did our route yesterday and today. Fairly light, but unfortunately one of our stops was all the way down in Eudora, so we ended up not getting back to the station in North Little Rock...

Re: More Stuff

Nope! The main star was born in 1984. Also, I don't think I mentioned it here, but I start working at DHL on Monday. I also picked up a few Dragonlance novels (Dragons of Autumn Twilight, Dragons of Winter Night, and Dragons of Spring Dawning). I don't recall ever reading the second and third, and t...

Re: More Stuff

I'm kind of reminded of the room with the fizzy lifting drinks from Willy Wonka.

Re: More Stuff

Kinda reminds me of an episode of that old show Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. There was some law against using magic to conjure up name brand items, so they had to drink Popsi and eat Schnickers bars. On an unrelated note, I'd been having some fun making characters for D&D (5th edition), and one of th...

Re: More Stuff

Well, well, well... turns out, my brother's boss realized he didn't hire enough people, and I'm at the top of the list of people they need to hire for peak season. And unlike the other guys, who would only work to the first of the new year, I would be able to stay on if I want to. I'd be taking half...

Re: More Stuff

Well, some potentially good news: I just finished applying to the UPS facility in Little Rock for their evening shift. The shift is only from 5 to 10:30 at night, and it's five nights a week, but I get weekends off. Also, the application concludes with scheduling an appointment for an interview and ...

Re: More Stuff

As it turns out, I'm not getting the job after all, because my brother's boss wants to be a dick. After interviewing me and asking my brother if they should hire me, he went and filled all the positions, then decided to hire someone to the position he already offered to my brother, and wasn't even i...

Re: More Stuff

It turns out that my brother will be training me at DHL, and then when my training is done, he'll be going into training for the supervisor position. He and I get along a lot better than anyone in my family does with my sister, thankfully, so I might have an easier time learning the job.

Re: Quick Update and New Cast 2020-07-31

I forgot all about Tina, but did she even have any prospective partners? Oh, good lord... I just pictured Hiroshi discovering the concept of "cougars," and getting curious about it right around the time they graduate. Edit: the implication being that he would think about hitting on Tina during a vis...

Re: Quick Update and New Cast 2020-07-31

Speaking of, what's Shelly up to? Now I'm suddenly wondering what would happen if any of the ladies got knocked up, or if that's even possible. Which would really just mean Shelly or Phix, since those are the only ones not in a lesbian relationship and not a golem. Edit: whoops, I kinda forgot about...

Re: March 12, 2020 (aka COVID-19 thread)

Honestly, I don't get the allure of bars. Noisy, too many people, and too expensive. But then, 8 have a tendency to be kinda cheap.

Re: More Stuff

Getting along with my sister is difficult for the rest of the family, most of the time. My brother and I are on good terms, and even then I wouldn't be likely to be working directly with him.

Re: Quick Update and New Cast 2020-07-31

Well, given that the younger of the two sisters would be in school with Cas, it'd be kinda likely thar the two would meet, although there's no reason she couldn't do that to Atsali. Or, even better, she could give Catherine some tips in front of the girls, and make everyone blush at once.

Re: Quick Update and New Cast 2020-07-31

Is anyone else hoping that the older sister teases the main cast with some racy comments/questions? I wanna see Castela get embarrassed when Dale gives her some... ahem... advice.

Re: More Stuff

My car is a bit too new for duct tape. Also, I'm gonna apply to the same olace as my brother. He says it's hard work, but it pays well. I don't mind the first part, so long as I'm actually properly taught how to do the job, but the second part is what's crucial.

Re: More Stuff

Perhaps. However, what's done is done, and I'm not worrying about it now. I have enough money to last a little while, too. Not really sure what job I should even try for now, though. There's no way I'd get hired for an apprenticeship anyway. I might as well wait a couple more weeks, then apply to Ko...

Re: More Stuff

No. I was still in the 30 day probation period, and I had another week to go, but they clearly didn't expect me to just learn everything and operate at their level in that time.

It's fine, though, as I was expecting to leave there, anyway.

Re: More Stuff

There's only five people in the whole company, including me. But it's fine, I knew it would suck to work with my sister.
