Simon blogs about his summer job in his free online teen web log.

July 25, 2006

Okay, so it turns out my dream job at Water World isn't quite what I expected. I had this vision that I'd be casually serving ice cream all day to beautiful girls, who would be dazzled by my ice cream scooping technique, and just be dying to hang out with me. But it's not like that all.

For starters, my boss is a total knob. He never gives me any breaks at work, so I never have any time to just hang out and check out the slides. This guy also has a major anger management problem and he goes into a total rage every time I do anything wrong. He's more frightening than my mom after I've come home with a "F" on my report card. Yesterday, I accidently dropped two scoops of ice cream on the floor and he acted like I'd just blown up the snack bar. He started yelling at me like crazy and said next time I spill any ice cream, he'll take the cost out of my next pay check. What a freak! I thought he'd be cool because his daughter, who works there, is super cute - but apparently there's no relation between the cuteness of a girl and the niceness of her dad.

And even though I get free ice cream, that's not really much of a perk. I've tried every flavor about 500 times and I'm actually getting sick of the stuff. Even when I fall asleep at night, I have dreams about scooping ice cream over and over, while my boss watches over me like he's some sort of evil dungeon master. The only good thing is that once the summer ends, so does this job.

Have you ever had a boss you really hated? Or a job you couldn't stand?

    Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

    You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says

    My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion
