The best thing about having a car is driving it and having the freedom of going where ever you desire (I mean as long as its in a working condition and you have gas money). The worst thing about it, having to do maintenance on it.
I’m currently at a tire shop. Funny story, I made an appointment for a different tire shop but came to this one because my brain isn’t wired correctly. They couldn’t find my appointment until the nice associate asked me if I was at the correct store. OMG I felt so dumb but she was super nice and made me feel as if it wasn’t even my fault. That’s what I call costumer service. The best. (Americas Tire, is where I went) #notsponsered I just really love them.
The first time I was here they changed my tires very fast and they were super nice.
Now, back to the whole issue with maintenance. I hate it. I absolutely, HATE buying things for my car. I know, I’m weird. Sorry. But, the reason being is that I just paid off my car and I want all that money to myself. Sue me. I’m greedy, what else is knew.
Also, I feel like I treat my car very well so it should do the same to me, you know? But it being an inanimate object that’s going to be a stretch. Any way, my car is ready, so I have to go. Gonna go burn some rubber …lol..jk….no I would never.
There’s is so much drama at work right now that its crazy, but I wont bore you with the details. Mostly because none of them concern me, lol. Well maybe one or two but that’s my business, and now yours as well.
So, I was up for position in another department at work. They told me I was going to get it once they worked out what ever they had to work out. Turns out I’m not. Yesterday I had a meeting with Jose (Manager of operations) to talk about inventory. Turns out my lead (second in command after a supervisor) interviewed for the Supervisor position for inventory but they told her that she wasn’t going to be getting it because she questions authority too much.
She was more than pissed because that job is more than right for her and everyone knows, even Jose had promised her the job. She told me not to trust him. Now shes looking for another job because she thinks they have really treated her unfairly, she had an interview today. n I’m hopping it went well.
But how do I play in all this? Well, since there are only five of us in inventory and three of us actually know what we are doing, Jose basically said that seeing the circumstances I was too “valuable to be given away to another department.” At the same time that felt really good to hear but then again it would feel even better if my pay check reflected what his worlds were saying.
So if she leaves were are left with no supervisor nor lead. Gabby is a tasker but still, she doesn’t know what she’s doing.
In other work news I have my interview this Friday for the answering phone service. I am excited and I hope I get it. I started to learn how to type today. Its so freaking hard! I don’t know how some people type so fast. Hopefully I can learn in less than three days but yeah that will be a stretch.
Yesterday I bought new front tires for my car. Even though those aren’t the ones that actually are supposed to go on the car I still had them placed because they were the cheapest and I can’t pay a hundred and something dollars for wheels right now. The guy said that it was still safe I just wouldn’t get the mileage I was used to. I said that’s ok and I haven’t really noticed any difference, then again its only been two days.
Tomorrow I’m getting the windshield fixed, due to the huge crack it has from side to side. I want my car to be at 100% if i’m going to be driving six hours. It’s also a plus to fix it up, after all I have to take car of what I have.
I’m so stoked for Sequoia! I can’t wait to be out there in the trees! It can’t get here any sooner.
