Ok, ok, this job's not so bad. I've actually just been sitting back here on my laptop for the last three hours waiting for something to do, be it help a customer or do my actual job. I'm still in training, but the guy training me is sitting out at the desk watching HBO - not that I need training, really. I've been doing this type of work for 6 years now.
I think what I don't like about it so far is the fact that I'm not used to working with other people, particularly not ones whom are looking over my shoulder to make sure I'm not screwing up. It's been four years since I've been in training anywhere, and I'm totally not used to it. I'm sure once this next week is over I'll be alright with this place. Still, that doesn't mean I won't be seeking other employment opportunities.
Barack Obama takes over on Tuesday, and I'm convinced that with a Democrat in the White House, things will get much better for the economy, and there will be more places hiring at decent wages. This $8.50 / hr. shit is ridiculous!
