I used to like my job. Sorta. I mean, it was a bit dull but I liked going in. Now I'm dreading Monday morning.

It started about two weeks ago. Someone at HQ in York noticed that the company was losing money. It was traced back to our office and this contract we have with a certain charity. We buy the bags from the charity to deliver and then claim the money back based on our returns and routes delivered. Or so I understand it.

But the bosses have been taking out the routes with poor results from the reports so it looks as though they haven't been completed - and yet we've paid them because they have been delivered. Maybe we only got one or two bags, maybe we didn't get any - but if someone phones up and asks why they haven't been paid for a route they've delivered, either Alison or Susan will tell me to pay them.

I've only been taking over doing the pays for a few months, not the whole time we've been delivering these bags. But since last May, the company has lost about £30k (or so I gather from listening in on phone conversations). All through routes that have been paid but not put on the reports. Only routes with good results get put on the reports so taking out the poor routes makes the company look better, which is all the bosses were concerned about.

Until they realised the company had been losing money.

Cue mad panic to find out how and why and where the money had gone. :| Bosses were in danger of losing their jobs, apparently.

So in the attempt to reclaim some money, they fired me.

For doing my goddamn job.

Which is such bullshit, it makes me speechless with rage. What the actual fuck?!

But my aunt campaigned on my behalf and got me my job back - working less hours and only three days a week but it's better than signing on at the job centre again. :| I just... wish I didn't have to go back now. It's going to be all awkward and stuff. Plus I'm still pretty angry at how this has all turned out.

And the worst thing is, I knowif Susan apologises, then I'll accept it and move on. If she bitches at me for not doing anything in work, then I'm going to tell her that it's only because I don't have enough to do - the job she was supposedly giving me to do was taken back by her without even telling me. Plus, there's only so much time I can spend filing before it's all done. :| So of course I'm going to sit and write fic on my phone. I HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO DO UNTIL YOU HAND ME THE PAPERWORK I NEED. And I can't just take it from her because she needs it first. She needs to input it into the computer (supposedly my job except she won't let me do it) although I suppose that comes after she goes dress shopping online.

No, seriously. She looked up a dress online, supposedly for some event, and sent one of our drivers to pick it up from the shop. :|

But I can't sit and write out a couple hundred words of fic in my downtime. Peacefully. Not disrupting anyone.

I just. Augh.

Rage.

Shutting up now. Not looking forward to work. Taking my time to get there in the morning, I think.

 Okay,  sod Genesis and Albel. What Daisychain really needs is a kender! >_> I just watched Dragons of Autumn Twilight. Not as epic as it could have been but I'm going to forgive that because Tasselhoff Burrfoot was fantastic~ *huggles kender*

What could be better than a halfling who's just going to stand and stare at Big Mommy going "Wow!" with a huge grin on his face? Yes. Need to app. Tas.

>_> Others can come later. 

But still...did give myself a month to decide on a character. But...I'm sorta getting excited about Tas. Besides, the app. will give me something to work on during my official haitus. XD

Of course, I'll need to find Tas pics and make icons or something, think up a username for the little guy...

However...time for a short movie review~



Okay, I should maybe get on with reserving/apping Tas. I'm gonma reread the books if I can, do a little digging around the internet for possible icons or find pics and make my own.

When I was still new to fanfiction, I didn't mind seeing the odd japanese word or phrase if it was based on a anime/manga/game set in Japan. I kinda saw it as a way to learn a little Japanese. But since I pretty much only learned otaku-speak Japanese, that got old really quickly.

And now it just annoys me. Why, when the rest of the story is in English, would you bother to put in Japanese words? Unless it is not set in Japan but one of the characters happens to be from there. Then I can accept it. Providing there's a translation.

But when a story has absolutely no apparent connection to Japan at all (save for it being the origin of the anime/manga/game), why bother having a character randomly say it?

Sorry, this just sprang out of nowhere. I'm happily reading an AU Kingdom Hearts fic (never as good as Eco's stories) when suddenly Zexion, for no apparent reason is suddenly speaking Japanese after bursting into song (Teenagers by MCR... >_<) with Demyx and Axel. Moments later, he's telling Demyx "I need someone to love me. Please will you love me?"

The OOCness is now killing me.

I wonder if there are any Demyx shounen ai fics where he actually seems to be in character? >_> Or maybe I've been reading too many fics by Xanvirash?

Gods...

Adam and Steph are here and I've been reminded quite horribly just how annoying they can be! At least Adam is not quite so desperate to impress her anymore. God knows after the one and a half plus years they've been together that he shouldn't have to by now but still it seems like he's trying. Which is probably why our mother's just waiting for them to break up. If he's still trying to get her attention and keep it, odds are the relationship just isn't going to last much longer.

But really, why do I have to be involved, in the "victim" kinda way. And why oh WHY does he have to ask me stupid questions that make me want to get him sectioned? And I can't lock my door anymore! When I go to bed, I'm going to have to be sure to block it securely and play games or type all night.

I also wantt o know why they watch phonejacker or whatever it is, because I've seen a couple ads here and there and the show basically looks like shit. *eye roll* Why can't they be interested in Doctor Who? Then I'd have someone besides my mother to fangirl with! Because I cannot do that with Iain. He just doesn't get the way my brain works sometimes.

Anyway, I'm ranting about Adam and Steph here. Just what is her surname anyway? How come after they've spent all this time together, I still do not know that? I mean, Christ, I've even met her mother! Who seems to recognise me after only two meetings - we bumped into each other in HMV one day and it wasn't until Adam showed up seconds behind her that I realised who she was. Gods, that was embarassing. >_<

This has turned out way longer than I expected. And I've been left alone for five minutes. I can still hear them quoting that goddamned show though.
