I got a job about six weeks ago at LensCrafters. In six weeks, I have gotten a pay raise that makes my pay-rate higher than what I'm making at Barnes & Noble... I have worked at Barnes & Noble for 18 months.
The B&N people keep asking if I like my new job and the reason I'm not getting any hours is that my availability has changed and they cannot work around it. If 3:00pm is the latest I can work then I don't need to work 6:00am to 9:00am, that is bullshit.
I need to quit B&N but I want to let them down gently. I've never quit a job before: Does anyone have any suggestions for how to do it?
That aside: I was outside LensCrafters on a break, minding my own and smoking a cigarette and there is this woman walking in the parking lot and she sets her leg on the curb, looks down at her leg and starts yelling at the top of her lungs "Get the fuck out of my knee, you son of a bitch! Jesus Christ, you mother fucker, I don't want you here anymore! Fuck! Jesus Christ!". I'm Watching her this whole time, she finally stops and looks up at me and then I look away. She walks towards me but just passes by. She wasn't walking with a limp at all, though. She gets down to The Macaroni Grill and then does it AGAIN!
On a related note - Has anyone read the book "The Glass Castle"? it's good.
