Gobble Gobble

The whole Thanksgiving thing is close at hand and I'll be glad when it's over. Partly because I work in a grocery store and this time of year the already insane hordes that are shoppers are even more psychotic than normal. Also, my girlfriend is planning to come to see me next week.

I miss her a lot and no amount of time together is ever enough, so the more the better. I asked for three days off while she's supposed to be here. Now she just has to get the time off approved. Here's to hoping.

Ring... Ring... Ring... and other things

Well, they have phones now. All three of them (Kenny too, Tammy's bf) got the same phone... and they got the same phone I have.

This not only means I need to pay attention to which phone I pick up when I go to visit girlfriend (because her father has the same phone I do) but I also have to pay attention whenever I'm home, or with my sister. Then there's the fact that my mother refuses to read directions for anything because she says she never remembers them anyway, so I'll end up having to show her how to do everything.

Wouldn't be so bad except that she won't sit down and let me show her everything at once she'll only come to me for one thing at a time as she thinks of it. So I've got a long road ahead of me.

Other people's phones, other people's business

Well for some reason my mother and sister have decided that I'm to go with them to get cell phones. I guess because I have one I'm a functional expert on them or something. *shrug*

They've decided on Sprint, mostly, I think, because of coverage. The downside is that since they will end up with unlimited phone to phone calling, and I already have it with Sprint, they'll have no reason not to call me ALL THE TIME. Argh...

Oh well, nothing much to be done about it. They'll get it if I go or not, and if I don't I'll just have to hear about how it was all so confusing, and how they wish someone would have been there to explain it all to them (as though that's not what the people at the store get paid to do), and I'll have to hear that for months, or even years.

So I'll go... it's easier that way.
