Since I haven't really done anything much exciting over the past couple of days, and I had the day off (supposedly) my plan was to yet again go to the ACMI, because they have an exhibition going on about music videos, but since you have to pay I hadn't been interested before. However I had picked up a leaflet that gave you entry for concession price, so I thought it may be time to start paying for things to do. Then I got a text from Zoe (Hooked) asking if anyone would be prepared to maybe do her evening shift as she needed an appointment which could potentially be this evening. Amanda got a call from her boss saying since a lot of people had called in sick so he couldn't stay open today, so when I got to Balaclava, I decided once I'd gone to Coles, I would go back and hang out with Amanda and Alice (who had been sent home from work because she has a cold) instead of having to rush around the exhibition in case I did have to cover Zoe's shift.
Vicki rang me to say that the same guy who had scammed me pulled the same stunt on Anna, so she sent out a warning text to everyone which made me feel a bit comforted I wasn't the only one to fall for it.
I did cover for Zoe, which I wasn't too upset about as they brought out 2 new salads today which I got to try, and I want to take advantage of the last few days that we can get staff meals (they're stopping it for some reason). The ancient grain salad is amazing- I want to steal the recipe when I leave! It meant I had to train a new girl- a German called Yvette. I felt a bit like one of those people that dislike children and refuse to believe they were one once because I feel like I never was as new to things as she is, which I know is complete k*** s because I remember Vicki asking me to cut up greaseproof paper which I started doing one at a time- given we make up about 50 boxes every day, that would clearly take too long.
Just an insight into the logic of Laura Burr- I didn't buy fruit from Coles as it's so much cheaper to buy from the shop I discovered behind Coles off Chapel Street, so when I was in balaclava coming back home, I decided to go to Yo-Chi and get a fruit salad from there (my intention was to not get any frozen yoghurt, but I couldn't resist banana soybean which was delicious) which ended up costing nearly $10, which of course I could have spent on a lot of fruit from Coles.
