Weekend Work Grind

Hey all, I hope you had a great weekend! I didn't really do anything exciting(unless you count declaring war on the garden bugs that keep finding their way into our house). Since college is hella expensive, I work part-time as a cashier/stocker on Friday and Saturday nights at a local grocery store. I don't always get to have exciting stories to tell on Mondays because cashiering is about as exciting as it sounds.

When you work retail or in a supermarket it's hard to stay enthused so you have to find ways to entertain yourself. After mentally writing a million posts about work in-between scanning items for bitchy customers, I decided to just jump in and put something out here in Blogland for everyone to see. Without further ado, I bring you the very first edition of Shit I See at Work!

 Okay so first up is just one of the many goofy safety signs that are put up in the break room every month. Other titles include Cracked Floor Tile and Marinara Mayhem. I think Doorway Downpour is pretty appropriate for this month anyway.

Next is the lovely safety sign that resides on our cardboard baler. I use this machine a lot, but I still get the heebiejeebies every time I look at this damn warning label. It basically produces the same shiver as nails on a chalkboard. Disclaimer: I don't do well with broken bones, needles, or detached body parts.

Here we have a hard-working dirt trap that lives under the conveyor belt. Now onion peels I understand, but part of a blonde weave and cat litter gives me something to think about.

*if you don't know what a weave is, click here*

I found this  weapon knife hiding in a milk crate under a stack of chairs in the breakroom the other day. What's not pictured is the the tiny Svedka bottle hiding under the green signs. I wonder if the boozer is the same person leaving Coors Light cans in the ladies room once a week.

Last, but not least, is the sweet gift my friend Hannah left on the table for me. I love how she always has my back and protects the Boston Creme donuts for me.

I hope you all enjoyed the first installment of Shit I See @ Work! I'm glad I can share this wild part-time cashier's journey with you.
When Sunday rolled around and all the working was done, I finally got to watch the rest of The Perks of Being a Wallflower with Kristo. He might've liked it even more than I did. Go figure. Well maybe he'll be cute and make me a mix tape. *wink wink*
