    Well I got a new job. Going back to the same grocery store where I was once a part-time stock clerk, now I'm going to be full time produce clerk.

    Went down to talk to the managers today and had them argue over what department would get me. It's nice to feel wanted and have your previous hard work recognized.

    This will hold me over nicely until I go back to school in the fall to work my way towards a marine engineering diploma.

    Just too bad the gun shop wasn't hiring.

    Working in produce means that you can finally perfect the corn cannon. It's not really that much fun working in a gunstore. You tend to get sick of hearing from some people.

  10. Congrats, bunny. Hey, as a produce clerk maybe you can snag a few over-ripe watermelons to use as range targets. :D

    Thank you guys..................and gal.

    And Al, I have heard tell that Canada is weighing options where establishing our own Marine force is concerned. From what I hear they'll be modeled more on the Royal Marines than the United States Marine Corps. though I think our crest will be a globe, killick (look it up) and sea-gull. :p

    Update.

    The job is going great! Like I said, I worked at this place before as a stock clerk but quit to go to University. Now after nine months of being away it's like coming back from a long weekend.

    I took a minute to see what was on sale this week, what the price of milk is and see what we have in stock and what we need to order and then got right back in the grind. Was cracking jokes and generally playing grab-a$$ all day just like I never left, everyone seems glad to have me back and that means SO MUCH.

    "Training" for the produce department is going well, as the manager and the senior produce clerk are around my age, just a little older and I've worked and partied with them before. It's basically three friends who happen to hang out in a grocery store and play who can put more stuff on the shelves in an hour.

    Going to the staff BBQ tonight for a few drinks and a bit of catching up with some of the cashiers. :cool:

    Glad to hear that the new/old job is coming along well. I guess you're pretty skilled at judging really nice melons from bad ones, huh? ;)

    I'm interested in knowing what a supermarket in Newfoundland is like compared to what I'm used to (Publix, Albertsons, Safeway, Frye's, et al). How about posting some pictures of the interior of this fine establishment, and maybe a few of you grabbing ass.
