My Life as The Temp
I think i might get the sack.
My job over the last three weeks has pretty much been to 'check' other people's work. How was i supposed to know that someone else was 'checking' me?!
Turns out, while i've been thinking about what to have for dinner, day-dreaming about my holiday to Greece and staring at people and hating... i may not have been giving 'the job' 100% of my attention. Thusly, of the (quite literally) thousands of papers i have 'checked' someone has chanced upon two (count them - TWO!) mistakes i've made.
But they're not even really mistakes, it's just shit i was supposed to enter on a spreadsheet... but for one reason of another (concentrating on 'muffin time'?) i didn't.
At first i was all like 'whoa... this is a weird feeling i've never had before... so this is what it feels like to fuck up...' But now i'm all, 'whatever, i hate that shit job anyway'.
I've never had the sack. Wonder if i'll laugh or cry.
