Mt. Fuji .. check ... now Mt. St. Helens :) [Aug. 8th, 2006|11:51 pm]
[Current Mood |excitedexcited]

In three consecutive transactions today:
1. The first person payed partially with 100+ pennies. haha, oh, and they simply dumped them into my hands for me to count them out.
2. The second person, although at least partially apologetic, ended up giving me 10+ coupons to scan
3. The third person went through fine, but then was looking at the coupon and seeing that something rang up wrong (2.77 instead of 2.44 as they thought it was supposed to be). So after having told another person waiting in a diff. line that they could come to my lane, I ended up having to go back, void the other 5 scans of the item, change the price on the item, make it for 6 items, then total it and all that jazz.. yea, all that for less than two dollars (and that other person had to go back to the other lane because it took that long)

bah. but it was an okay day. continued my green streak .. 490ish now

Tomorrow I'll be leaving at about noon over to my grandparents' house, where we'll head off from shortly after. I think we'll be picking up Bud down in the Tacoma-area around 2ish (depending on traffic), and then will get over to the Mt. St. Helens area that evening, probably set up the tent and all, and then go have dinner & come back to sleep.

Then Thursday is the big hike up to the very tip of the crater on Mt. St. Helens!!! And I think we're coming back that evening. me = verrry excited :)

A very blah-ish day, in all reality. Didn't do as well as I expect of myself at work (~270 transactions, got 3 reds within those. even though the store average is like 88% greens, I expect 99+% greens of myself). Other than that, however, nothing really happened during the course of the day. *sigh* it's the one downside to having shifts that take up most of the evening - I wake up late, go to work, stay up late, then go to sleep .. and start the entire thing over again

another curve ball ... [Jul. 24th, 2006|09:41 pm]

...apparently there was an ambulance up at Susan's house just a couple minutes ago (taking either Susan or her mom, not sure who).

although my mom told me the lights weren't on or anything, so at least that could be a good sign.

(copied from away message because of the laziness of day camp evenings)
yea, so my phone didn't die, but i can basically only see the time and that's it. so the only way to get a hold of me for the time being is AIM or e-mail.

no idea what is going on w/it .. and no idea what i'm going to do at this point. especially considering i'm busy from 6am until 5pm every day this week.

112/113 = wonderful day. [Jul. 3rd, 2006|12:40 pm]
[Current Mood |happyhappy]

Yesterday's "box score" (if you will) cashiering: 113 transactions w/only 1 red (giving me a 99%!!) & had a person open a target charge card (second shift in a row!). And going into tomorrow's 4th of July shift (at $12.75 an hour, thanks to time and a half), I have a streak of about 80 greens going :)

(to put it in comparison .. a lot of the veterans there still only get 90-95% .. and my average before now, excluding the first day, has been about 95%, so this 99% brought me an amazing feeling .. haha, especially when the GSTL [our team leader] saw the percentage on the number of transactions and reacted to it, I was alllllllll smiles and grins when ringing up the next couple customers)
