Texting and Working

I got free texting a little while ago, so I can be less cheap with my phone. It turns out I'm spending the same amount (with pay as you go) now as I was before I got free texting. It kind of blows because I don't have a job so I can't really afford to be spending too much. Job-wise, I'm not sure where I want to work. I was thinking Red Robin (Notice it's not called Red Robins. My childhood is ruined), but I can't get there by bus, and my dad works, and my mom tutors at random times, so I can't depend on rides from my parents. The only other option is to bus part-way and then walk the rest of the way, which I was willing to do...until my dad reminded me of the neighbourhood around Red Robin. It's like druggie/hooker central (For Maple Ridge anyways). So I decided to settle for second-best and I think I'll apply at Staples. I've known a few people who have worked there, and they all seem to have liked it, as far as jobs go. I'm pretty sure I can bus there, and I think they'd be fairly flexible for my hours, so I'll probably go pick up an application some time soon.

I hate the process of applying places. After how I got the job at Jacob's, it's hard to make myself write out a formal resumé, and fill out an application form. For Jacob, he just got my brother to bring me one day, and work alongside him, and I guess he was just making sure I wasn't retarded or something, and then at the end of the day he paid me for that day's work, and told me to come back the next day.

Also, apparently at Staples their electronics department is already pretty much full, so I'd probably end up restocking stuff, and maybe being a cashier. That's not too bad, just I would like it a lot more if I could work with computers and stuff.

About time this was updated ;).
Anyways I hope you find a good job, and don't get mugged on the way there or anything. If any mobsters come up to you just tell them you're my friend, they'll go running.
Being a cashier is a lot of fun and being at Staples you wouldn't even have to memorize all the codes for produce and bakery goods. 4081!*eggplant* So I'd say its probably more interesting than being a stockboy. However stockboys can be lazier and hang out in the back, where customers can't see them. -___- I envy them.
