Yesterday while I was giving Randy and his fiance a lift, Wal-Mart called and asked if I wanted to come into work tomorrow despite it being my day off. They requested I come in at 8 in the morning and train the new stockman they hired. I accepted. The first thing I had to do was make sure I woke up early enough, since I usually wake up around 10. Well, my brother, Matt uses my alarm clock radio to wake up at 6:45 for school, so I wrote a note telling him to wake me up too and left it on the clock. Then I went to bed, around 2:30 (silly me).
I woke up by my dad and he had Wal-Mart on the phone. I asked him what time it was and he said it was almost 8:30. It was CSM Courtney reconfirming that I was going to go in today. I told her that my source of waking up was unreliable. She said it was okay, just to come in as soon as I could, and she'd have the new guy do the CBLs (computer based learning). Everyone has to do them so they know all procedures and whatnot. I clocked in at 9:20, an hour and 20 minutes late, but it was okay because I wasn't scheduled.
Perry, the new stockman is my height, has short, black, barely curly hair, and Elvis sideburns, and he's 30. I showed him the ropes, and basically had a normal day and left at 4. He came from New York, but lived here long enough to go to the University of Oregon. I'm freakin' tired now, and this ripping of CDs takes forever. It'd be nice to have someone to take a nap with though. I kind of miss the very few times I did.
