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?

Later,
Simon

    I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...

    I don't know. It honestly could be that she likes you, or she is just a really good friend.
