well...seems I've secured my payraise.. but then I did threaten to leave if I didn't get it... I'm one of the few people there who actually dose any work.. now only need to see how much of one, all I can say is it'd better be substantial
forever shall this be an infamous moment in NZ history..almost as bad as that underarm bowling incident in the cricket world cup.. bloody australians...

such a wonderfully frosty night.. a quiet night, though the cold tends to bring out people who actively seek the company of someone who can't make a hasty retreat when they complain about how cold it is.. I was hopeing for hail.. I haven't enjoyed a propper hailstorm this winter yet.. at least we got a little snow the other week, though as usual it didn't stick around more then a few hours
hmm, I need to stabelize my sleeping patterns again, been sleeping at all the wrong times lately not tired when I should be most of the time, and too tired when I shouldn't be, tried to do that last night..didn't quite work, overslept
all in all, it's been a better week..and with all the extra work I ended up doing I've made a fair bit, now I can't wait till monday night when everythings back to normal hehe =)
hopefully the person I should have been online to chat with tonight/last isn't too upset at my absence
ahh yes..did I fail to mention we finally got rid of the village idiot!? ...no? hmm..can't recall.. hehe *glee* tell you anyway..well I shall explaine as it pertains to my absence of late, due to the shear stupidity of this guy (barely been working 2 weeks) he was not doing any of the stuff he should have been..like..say...working... and instead doing alot of things he should not have, such as washing his car at 3am, sleeping on the job, being generally rude to customers, spending half the night smokeing...
all this is makeing my job much more dangerous then it currently is.
See pissing off people in this suburb is NOT a smart thing to do, ok there's much worse places to be, but when you're on your own with the only security being shatter proof glass (not bullet proof..we don't have gun problems like most countries, our police still don't carry any other weapons then a nightstick and pepper spray) and a shitty camera system that still records in black and white to video/cassette.. anyway people are more inclined to rob someone else if they dislike that person and think you're alright..(course most of petty crims here are usually either drunk or stoned) or they could easily come back with their cortieure to have a little fun...
so, I've been covering the shifts till the new guy starts which will be monday night, on that night I'll be superviseing to make sure he knows what he's doing if he's got any questions ect.. and basically being paid to just sit there, I think I'd best bring a book ;)
