Do I exude a psycho pheromone?

No, really, do I? I think work must hang a sign that says, "Hey, Stewart is working, if you're potentially violent, come on in!!!"

I had another psycho walk-in at work today, and the truly ironic thing was that I was done working. As usual when my supervisor replaces me on the phones, I stayed to chat with her, so when psycho-guy-who's-wife-was-in-a-shelter shows up, I got to deal with him.

I'm getting a reputation for being able to deal with problem walk-ins. Dammit, I think I liked it better when people didn't think I was intimidating. I wonder how I can work that into my resume . . .


In other news, I got my first Hall Director paycheck today! Rock! I made a huge dent in my fall rent. A couple more, and I can start putting money into my car, or better yet, a better car. I hate being stressed out while I drive, because I'm worried my car will do something funky. I know annienialle is feeling me on this issue.

Well, since I'm awake now, I guess I should do something productive, like shave and shower. Vanessa emailed my roster for VB Setter/Hitter too, so I guess I can get that done before I go to work too.

OMG! I totally know the guy. I talked to him on the phone. He went on and on about how he wanted me to find his wife and tell her he loved her - how it was the right thing to do.

What a total psycho!!! I ended the call with him because he was freaking me out. Eep!

6 more shifts for me. Horray!

I know how you feel about the car; I just spent $1000 on repairs to mine. It feels like I got hit with a wrench.

Ah, my clever Spoo - you remembered. Shitty-ass Festivas are labeled Ford but actually made by Kia. Did you also know Kia used leftover parts from 1960's Yugoslavia that are not only impossible to find in modern America but also covered by an ancient curse that makes them break in half every thousand miles? It's true! Third fucking time I replaced that rear brake system - warranty be damned. Fockers.
