[08:07] <FireFly_9> So I am excited inside by the chance of a weekend to get away from the damnable store and back home to rest from the week when my employer comes up and asks in that puppy-dog voice of his, "Hotaru-kun, can you work Saturday?"
[08:08] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> Did you tell him to jump off a ridge??
[08:09] <FireFly_9> No, but I wanted to. Just because I have a family at home willing to support me doesn't mean I can just walk away from things. I have to treat this as if I was own my own, fully. So I need this job.
[08:09] <SpeedRcrX> Yeah and he knows it which is why he's f[BLEEP]king you over.
[08:10] <FireFly_9> This will be the SECOND week in a row I wont' have a proper weekend. And the worst of it is that I'm so tired after working that any free time I *do* have I just want to spend in a daze instead of enjoying it.
[08:10] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> Welcome to retail, Hotaru-chan??
[08:10] <FireFly_9> "Welcome to hell" is more like it.
[08:10] <SpeedRcrX> Like there's a difference?
[08:11] <FireFly_9> I now fully understand and appreciate all the connotations of the phrase "wage slave".
[08:11] <FireFly_9> It is a truism beyond reproach.
[08:12] <FireFly_9> I make a pittance, I have to wear some stupid brightly-colored shirt that doesn't suit me at all and I am subject to the whims of my maanger like a marionette having her strings pulled.
[08:13] <SpeedRcrX> LOL give up and come home
[08:13] <FireFly_9> Some days I think about it.
[08:13] <FireFly_9> Some days I really do.
[08:13] <FireFly_9> But I'm no quitter, Haruka-poppa.
[08:13] <FireFly_9> I will tough this out.
[08:14] <SpeedRcrX> LOL you're trying to pull a whole Prince and the Pauper thing but the fairy tale ended with the Prince coming home.
[08:14] <FireFly_9> :/
[08:15] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> A wise man once said something on the back of a coffee cup:
[08:15] <[gTV]C'est_la_V>:
The Way I See It #65: If you're worried about getting a job--or keeping one--start a company of your own. By doing so, you'll reap the rewards of your hard work and you'll only get fired if you fail. This is the land of opportunity. Live in it.

[08:15] <FireFly_9> Who said that?
[08:15] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> Bruce Campbell-sama
[08:16] <SpeedRcrX> ASH!!!
[08:16] <[gTV]Red Crow> Oh yeah, he said that on the back of a Starbuck's cup. I had to drink that overpriced burnt-sludge one time.
[08:17] <FireFly_9> Karasuma-san, from everything I've seen of you, you never complain about your work. Why is that?
[08:17] <[gTV]Red Crow> I love my work.
[08:17] <[gTV]Red Crow> I love every second of it.
[08:18] <[gTV]Red Crow> The difference between me and you, kid, is that I do what I love all the time. You're just stuck in a dead-end job trying to do what you love but being treated like just another cog in the machine.
[08:18] <[gTV]Red Crow> You're going to burn out.
[08:18] <FireFly_9> I'm already there.
[08:18] <[gTV]Red Crow> Then change careers.
[08:19] <FireFly_9> Don't you think I'm looking to? The market is sparse.
[08:21] <[gTV]Red Crow> That's the world economy tanking for you.
[08:21] <[gTV]Red Crow> One of the reasons I love my job is I come across gems like this:

[08:21] <FireFly_9> ... LOL
[08:22] * FireFly_9 looks at her watch and almost cries.
[08:22] <FireFly_9> I have to get ready to go now.
[08:22] <FireFly_9> I have to go put on my blasted red jumpsuit top that makes me look like a "redshirt" from Star Trek.
[08:23] <SpeedRcrX> LMAO well look at it this way
[08:23] <SpeedRcrX> their lifespans were never very long
[08:23] <FireFly_9> :/
[08:23] <FireFly_9> Wage Slavery then death. O, what a miserable existence doth man live in order to earn his daily bread.
