On Wednesday afternoon, I got a voicemail about an interview. I went to that interview on Thursday at 3pm. I was on time but it started late, which gave me time to bond with one of the guys that works there. By 3:30pm, I was hired.
By 6pm, I had gone home, changed from interview clothes to crap, had a quick snack and bused back downtown to start my first shift. I'm officially the new dishwasher/minor food prep guy at Patty Boland's Irish Pub and Carvery in the market. Huzzah! Full time nights! Money! And likely the chance to be promoted fairly quickly. I was hired Thursday and I've already heard it mentioned twice.
I asked to be directed toward someone who would be in charge of me for the night, and I was pointed at Curtis.
Here I am with Curtis and some girl name Tia or something, in April 2007. I met Curtis in March of that year because he was dating my roommate Krista's friend Nyssa. I thought he was pretty cool, and wanted to stay friends with him. Naturally, they broke up soon after, and this picture was probably on the last night I ever saw him. UNTIL NOW. [I didn't even know his last name, so Facebook was of no help].
So of course, we saw each other and were like HEY! and my mind instantly went to *yay! I'll have a friend at work!*
Minutes later, I found out that Curtis would be working his last shift 3 days later. Because that's how my life works. But now I've got him on Facebook.
On Friday, I had to go to Old Navy to quit without notice, which I totally hated doing. I LOVED working there, even though it was only for a few weeks. I loved the staff there. Thankfully, I've got the best Old Navy kids on Facebook already as well. None of my favourites were working when I went in to quit, which was good, since I probably would have cried. Seriously. But with that said, I like the new job, and I feel financially stable for the first time in months, and I'm happy, and the people are nice there too. And the free meals help!
Now, I will leave you with this sort of picture of a random restaurant kitchen that I took somewhere in the market during last week's photo walk.
