I’m so excited because today I am officially turning in my “two weeks”. Really more like three months… but whatever. My official last day will be August 24th and I cannot wait! Working at MOC has been a pretty good job as far as minimum wage jobs go. The benefits are pretty good and my boss tries really hard to be flexible about scheduling. It is still just a minimum wage job that feels very unfulfilling to me. I hate working for the capitalist system in such a direct way that it often makes me really angry. One example is the way “the system” encourages rude behavior is horrible. The loud, mean, and complaining customers get what they want (discounts, free food, whatever). Managers will do anything to keep people shopping there. Sure, nice people get an extra large sample sometimes but that’s about it. It’s the mean ones that get their way. And that is true for pretty much anywhere a capitalist system is in place. The only people that ever get banned from our store are those that steal things and I just found out that one of the girls I work with was wrongly accused of stealing. She went and explained what happened, got the ban lifted, and later got a job ?! Anyways, people often think of the capitalist system from the money perspective and how it creates these corporations that only care about money…. this is true. I think I have also just noticed some of the secondary effects of what is happening. We are creating more and more people to treat other people like crap through a Pavlovian dog system. It’s very nice.
Anyways, that was a tangent. I’m happy about my “two weeks”! The end is near! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!!! Horray!
