    He actually told you to "shut up?" Wow.
    IMO it doesn't really help to know that a manager is equally crappy to everybody. In fact it kinda makes it worse. I always wonder how these people ever got in positions of management/power when their people skills are totally trash.

    On the way to work this morning I heard a radio ad for a handmade crafters and artists expo my old work is putting on. Just so happens they are putting it on at my gym too. I'm sort of interested in finding out how much it costs to buy a booth.
    But at the same time that means I have to call the station... talk to a sales rep, meaning an ex-co-worker, and the only sales rep I would have LIKED to talk to has now left... give them some of my MONEY... and will have to go into the station for meetings and stuff.
    And I really don't want to. I mean I just really really. I went by the station the other day to talk to my friend and he asked me if I wanted to come inside and no, I just kinda didn't.

    It still feels like a bad breakup.

    At the same time I know if I ever started a business or anything, that is where I would go to advertise... and it would be the smartest business move... so this could legit be a good idea... but.
    But.

    LOL I know. It's true. When McGuinty was reelected here, I tried to convince hubby to move to AB.

    I think the winters would kill me though.

    Meh, I don't mind the censorship. For the people that prefer censored material, it's available...and for those that don't want censored material, it's available, too!

    My vent:

    I was going to run errands right after I got off of work. Then I realized I didn't have my checks to deposit. And didn't know what kind of ink I needed to get for the printer. And then my plan just fell through. So now I have to drive 20 minutes BACK in to town to just do some odds and ends errands. Boooo.

    But, at least it is a beautiful day and I have the rest of the day off!

    Well we'be had brown Christmases for the past few years... Just a couple of storms. So if you really like to have snow for all of winter, don't move here. Otherwise southern Alberta is fantastic.

    Basically, and I wouldn't have had a problem with him asking us to stop joking around if he had gone about it differently. My manager is only about nineteen, since my job is at the local pool, but I still feel as though he should've been professional about it. He isn't too great with people to begin with, but I've been able to tolerate it up until he said that.

    He even had the audacity to say the same thing the night before, except it was at a staff party... at someone else's house. Once again, it was because I made a light-hearted joke about my sister's "roots" and even though she was laughing and going along with it, he decided to tell us to stop being annoying.

    I am just keeping my fingers crossed that this year's assistant manager takes his position next year... because he is much better at communicating and is just easier to be around. Nor does he constantly pull rank surrounding Nationals, which is basically something you need in order to lifeguard at a university or beach. He says himself that Nationals is irrelevant and it doesn't make a better lifeguard, yet he always makes jokes. It doesn't bother me personally, but it irritates a few of my co-workers... even the ones who have Nationals themselves.

    Basically. I just got a debit card and access to my savings account when I turned 18, and some days I just want to spend ALL OF IT.

    Nothing will make me question my provincial education system more than browsing kijiji ads.

    There's a missing Bull Massive, someone searching for a mini golden retriever and a litter of sheppard shizu mix pups...

    Meh, In my area I do not have to dose my animals with chemicals. And even when we drove through BC to Vancouver I did not give them chemicals. If I was stopping in the Okanagan, then maybe yes I might dose the dogs up but probably not since its still pretty uncommon there.

    And I never dose my dogs with stuff for fleas and ticks. My dogs actually had flea issues when we lived in Spruce Grove. So far no fleas or ticks here. And even then we just let the fleas run their cycle and then they went away.

    I spent a fair share of time in Fort Mac, you could not pay me to live there. I don't know how you do it. All the bugs and terrible drive to get there and the seclusion. Plus it costs a fortune to live there.

    But each to their own :)
