Got pulled over two nights ago, the cop asked if he could search my truck, being a cooperative person I let him. Not even two minutes later here comes the k-9. 5-10 minutes lAter, no narcotics or weapons found. I wake up the next morning to find scratch marks all on my paint. From the weatherstripping on the bottom of the window seal to the middle of my passenger door. Livid, I contacted the sheriffs office and eventually got a return call from the captain. He came out, snapped a couple pictures, then instructed me to take it to a detailer to get it buffed. Gave me his cell and told me to call him with the price, this shit could have been avoided if the cops in my town had real shit to tend to. But hey, least they are coughing up the cash

Sorry man, that sucks bad. I would be incredibly pissed!
You should never let the police search your vehicle without a warrant. Simply tell them that you do not consent to searches. (If they ask)

its a pizza place locally owned in my town. i dont wanna give out too much deets because if the wrong person sees it im canned.

they are very tyrannical there and rule by fear.



heres and example: before i became ast. manager, some guy i didnt know (later to be found out its the repair man) we have 10 stores thru ohio and west virginia.

he just came in and started digging through the trash can and found my snuff spit and disregarded lump-o-dip sorry if thats gross.

he reported to the owner. and i got a write up. now theres a no rubbing policy because of me. we werent allowed to dip before but it was kinda unsaid. now its automatic termination

not the best example but you can get the gist. sometimes they just randomly come in and search the store as if we are hiding something.

its kinda ridiculous. better example: owner comes in (this is recent) bitching about my overtime (as usual) throws some folder with papers and shit in it on the ground. tells me to pick it up. (i did cuz im a bitch)

yeah lol

oh also the owner is 3 brothers. they are all three dick heads. they do have their good days tho. the one that i had the recent confrontation with said he can help me find a guy to paint my truck cuz he heard me talking about it. idk i think they need valium or something cuz its not a bad place to work and this shit doesnt happen every day. its just like 1/3 days somethin stupid happens and i get blamed or my boss bob gets blamed.

not too unpaid, but i get about 5-10 hrs of o/t each week. just depends on how much i can milk the clock legitimately if you get what im saying. the more they bitch the less i get the less they bitch the more i can stay on the clock. mind you im working at work either way. i dont stay the night there on the clock saying im scrubbing the tiles.

besides if i were to quit id be fucked and have to find a mcds job. i dont have any qualifications or a degree yet.

mistreated is kind of a relative word. since im used to being treated like shit. i fit right in. not supposed to be a sob story. just had really really bad jobs in the past. dont even want to talk about em

i believe my mom has family in or near greenville... not 100% but i know they went down there for a couple weeks a while ago.

what kinda numbers you looking at? i know i can get anywhere from 50-90/acre around here -- higher in the nicer neighborhoods. worked with a buddy last summer.

just dont do fast food seriously its the most demeaning bullshit ever. i cant imagine going back to long johns. had to work with so many more un educated people than i do at the pizza place. my manager and a couple of friends i worked with at long johns was cool and that was about it the rest of it was ridiculous dealing with people crying because they couldnt come to work and making up stupid excuses. sort of the same shit i deal with at the pizza place but just to a higher degree.

when i say un educated doesnt mean they didnt go through school. they are just plain dumb is what i mean.


im done bitching for the night. ive had enough

This is a long post. Im not posting it for people to post their opinion. Im posting it to VENT and just that VENT. I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT GIVE A SHIT WHAT YOU THINK OF THIS!


I hate all the shit thats coming up lately! My girlfriend and I are at wits end with each other lately. I own the car (my Gp) and the truck (ranger) and still owe on both of them. We got into an arguement and i took the keys for both vehicles and left. she got upset and called her folks and they offered to give her their van and get a new vehicle or take over payments on the gp. GP is an 06 base with 135k on it, not worth how much of a loan i have on it yet, but the ranger has a positive equity of about 5-8K. And because of this i might have to give up the ranger and get soemthing else. Becuase i dont want 4 vehicles in the driveway and paying for one with no use and the grand prix in my eyes is almost worthless now. worth about 3-5k on a good day. almost every body panel is dented or dinged. The ranger is not a daily driver for me with my situation. I have a 6month old that i do not want riding in the front seat of my truck when i have to take him someplace all the time.

This shit pisses me off.

WORK BLOWS lately. Managers are *******s. IF your a manager of a crew of workers dont be a complete ******* all the time. Its not always about the stupid NUMBERS NUMBERS NUMBERS.

I really dont want to get rid of the ranger tho, but im paying almost 500 a month in just car payments as well that would be nice to lower, but i like having a truck. Might have to look into a newer supercrew truck.
