Crapberry? I quit!!!

June 27th, 2011 1 comment

Well, not really.

The job is about what I expected it to be, preventative maintenance, tenant complaints and the occasional stupid project. And a fair amount of sitting around. I’ll be at the main building for a few days, then they’ll start to spread me out.

The dudes are cool. There’s the manager, the site lead and three other guys. I guess I’ll hafta come up with code names or some shite.

The phone, sigh, yes a Crapberry. A Bold to be exact. I don’t know why I was laden with this particular burden, most of the guys have flip phones, some have iPhones. I, sigh, have one of these. Blah.


OMG, so much bicycle

King neighborhood to PSU (mmm, Dosirak, so good, so much food).

Thru PSU to Central Library (pick up book, pay debt to society).

Down to Riverplace (get day late final paycheck).

Across the Hawthorne to Lloyd (Wage & Hour Division FTW!).

Back downtown to credit union. (FSCK!)

Walk to convenience store for Mt Dew.

Rest and drink pee-colored nectar of the gods while anticipating the return of my will to live.

Now I’m cheating and riding the damn MAX part of the way home!

My faith in the American legal system, democracy and humanity remains nonexistent. I wouldn’t trust some of these morons to properly flush a toilet. My dedication to fascism is renewed.

After only about 7 months at the RiverPlace Hotel it’s my second most hated job, beat only the place (justly) known as the Shithole. It’s only a modestly badly run hotel, but it’s still a fucking hotel. You’ve all heard enough bitching about that place, so I won’t bother you further.

The new place, which I will be cagey about following my personal social media policy is a (wait for it) high rise commercial building contractor! Huzzah!!!

It’s actually a federal contractor. Also, a union shop. But the union contract is being negotiated so I don’t have to join yet.

It’s over HALF again what the hotel was paying me. 156%, to be exact. There’s no concern about layoffs from budget cuts, being cagey I’ll just say it’s a part of the budget no pol will campaign about cutting. Also, not affected by shutdowns.

It’s day shift, business hours so no more missed Yelp Elite events!

Apart from that, it’s gonna be a fucking job. People are going to annoy me, tasks are going to frustrate me. It’s a job.

It’s just way better than what I have now.
