Country of Origin

I really need a new flipping job, I don’t know if anyone knows about the new federal law here in the united states, but all produce and bulk food has to be signed with the Country of Origin (where its from) You can read more about the federal law here in detail if you are still without a clue to which I am talking about. 

Today I swear to god I was setup, my department manager asked me to fill the carrots, so I did, him and the co-manager walked past me filling up the carrots and he looks at the case the carrots came in and he said “where they from” I said “I dunno, USA” and he goes “well how do you know” I did not say a word, well the rule is if it is not labeled where its from you have to call the warehouse to find out where its from, even though I know the carrots are from California, USA. I had all the carrots filled, so being the dick that I am, I unfilled all the carrots, tossed them back in the box and went to the back, called the warehouse and low and behold they were from California, USA. So now that I was 100% sure where they were from I went back out to the floor and filled the carrots.

About five minutes later my department manager, and co-manager called all of us to the back to discuss about the ‘COOL’ signing (Country of Origin) and our co-manager said “I am not going to take the fault, and your department manager is not going to take the fault, so we are going to have to coach the associates” I am like this is flipping bullshit, at that point I was happy it was almost time to go home because I really just wanted to walk out of there throw my badge on the floor and leave but good thing that it was pretty much time to go home because that really pissed me off.

My goal now to get hired by the State of Washington, I have the application right here in my hot little hands, Jeniece’s mom said she can get us jobs with the State of Washington, they are turning her building that she currently works in, into a Washington State call center, which she told us starting pay would be double what we are making now.

This is going to be a Jamed Packed post, not going to be blogging about one subject but going to be hitting on a few things, first of all. Does anyone live where they have a WinCo grocery store? Well a month ago we got our first WinCo Foods, which seems to try to out beat Wal-Mart on prices, they try to be the leader when it comes to a grocery store, two days ago we got our SECOND WinCo Foods, and as if one was not enough, lastnight we went to check out the new WinCo Foods and I am not impressed, we bought a few things, but just a handful of things because their prices were not better then Wal-Mart, only on a couple things that gets you in the door to buy those items, then your thinking ‘oh these prices are good’ well if you actually compare the prices between WinCo Foods and Wal-Mart, Wal-Mart was actually cheaper. First when you walk in, it reminds me of a foodbank, then like most grocery stores, you enter the Produce department first and right there I was not impressed with the quality of the produce, beings I work in the Produce department at Wal-Mart that is one thing I look at, as we walked around the store, I was looking at everything and they have alot of brands I have never heard of. The next items I was looking at was Soda/Pop prices and Wal-Mart is actually cheaper so moving right along. So we going through the checkout and the one thing that turns me off to WinCo Foods is that you have to bag your own grocerys which completly takes away the customer service. Will I go back? Just to get a couple of things like our Juice we drink because WinCo has the larger sizes.

All week I have been having nothing but problems with my home phone with Qwest, well more them problems, I dont have a dialtone, I cant make calls or receive calls, I have been on the phone with Qwest, they are even on Twitter, its been a week and they have not solved the problem, they keep telling me to do this do that, go out to the box. Mind you I live in an apartment. They ask me questions everyday I contact them (Via Twitter) Have you contacted the repair department today? HELLO MORON…. I CANT USE MY PHONE. I told them I am not going to pay a dime till they fix it. I am actually going to cancel the service because I dont care to pay my money to a bunch of morons. A week ago I canceled my DSL through Qwest because it just stopped working, I went into the DSL Modems stats and it said that it could not connect and please contact the help desk, I call up Qwest, they basicly said im a idiot and their service is working and there is nothing they can do for me. I hung up on the rude guy and called back the next day and canceled my account, now this week my home phone does not work.

I am about ready to bust out the Christmas Tree because it sure and hell feels like Winter again. It snowed 3+ inches overnight. Lastime I looked at the Calendar it was SPRING.
