Pluto close up


In continuing the theme of venting about work while AT work started by minerva_fan and reservoir earlier today... I AM SO MAD!!! I mean, yeah, I understand that I don't get any money no matter how long I stick around this place, but I really do enjoy being here, for the most part. I like the people, and Blaine amuses the hell out of me, so it's better than being stuck at home. It would blow much ass not to sell a damned thing, but if that happens then that happens.

At least that was the way I felt until today. I finally put shit up on ebay, right? Happy times, wouldn't you think? Maybe... until I realized that ebay charges up the FUCKING WAZOO just to put shit on their site. I knew about the fee they took when shit sold, I was okay with this. I knew about the fees they charged for adding things like pictures and other pretty things. Again, I was okay with this. I did not know about the charges they charge for everything else, and considering that I used my bank account number to get my own account per my boss's orders, I didn't think anything of it. So when he said put the stuff on your account, I was fine with that.

Then, I found out that I spent about 18 dollars JUST TO PUT TWO FUCKING THINGS ON THE DAMNED SITE!!! Two things that I'm pretty sure are not going to sell for the price that he wants to sell them at because I checked the other auctions for similar items and nobody ever bid anything on those. So, while my bank account has enough money in it to support said charges (and I've now got like 4 dollars left in my account. GO ME!), the fact that I had to fork over that kind of money is not pleasant. I'm a damned college student, dammit! I'm working here because I NEED money, not because I HAVE money to throw away. Of course, I would like to talk to him about this, but he went away.

So, you know, I've now lost about 100 dollars of my own money on this whole deal when you count the money for the new memory card (which we still haven't switched because my parents are evil), batteries (these special digital camera batteries, while pricey, kick much ass) and the ebay fees.

I think I win the work sucks contest today.

On the plus side, I was able to help Blaine out with finding something in the warehouse. It makes me feel good about myself.
