One of my managers has been arrested for colluding with armed robbers, she was a super cool manager too...

You're gonna have to describe this one a bit more.

Colluding can be very dangerous depending on how fast you go. 8-)

There was a bunch of armed robberies in my store chain a few months ago, one close to our work an employee was stabbed.

We got hit too (I wasn't working at that time) and it shook up the store pretty bad.

I came into work a few nights ago only to be confronted by the big boss regional manager. She asked me to open up my locker and show her my phone for contacts with that manger, she then asked me to delete her and any of her associates, and that it is illegal to keep in contact with her from now on.

The other manager I work with then told me the police found out because the the security systems got messed up that night and she was on security duty at the time.

Having a fight break out in my car and later on having someone almost throw up in it over the weekend while Ubering suddenly seems pretty tame. O_o

Think you have what it takes to enlist into the military? You sure about that?

I meant via company policy.

I wasn't around any of this when it happened due to the fact that I work weekends and had to cut down my hours significantly. All of what happen was 2nd hand to me. So I reckon you had a more interesting weekday.

As someone who's thrown up in a taxi, trust me it's sucks for us too!

Completly forgot but after months of job hunting where I tried everything in my area of expertise (I mean it), i finally landed a job in IT consulting for ArcelorMittal, my job is basically writing software to automatize this :

So far the only issue is that I feel dusty and sickly going back home. Still beat no work thought.

Getting laid off again may be back to work in a few weeks.

Found a different job reptile keeper internship. Unpaid, no accommodation and on the other side of the country so that's not going to happen

That was once, nearly a decade ago, and the first time I've ever thrown up...

Also, I only Uber sober!
