A coworker got the ol' heave ho today. I feel really bad for her but I saw it coming. She had been there for 10 months and still not able to use the computer. That is like a cashier not knowing how to use the till! Computer literacy is a part of the job and she was just not able to do even the simplest of tasks. The general manager started having me do all her computer related work so my job was getting more and more stressful. I feel like a bitch for even thinking that! I didn't mind helping her but last week I was doing a month end report that takes 3 days of totally uninterrupted concentration. In the middle of it I had to stop to help her with what could have been a very simple invoice. It only took about 30 minutes and I didn't say anything to anyone but I was tired of her not being able to pull her own weight. Anyway, she was fired today for the above reason and for several other reasons. It is weird to feel bad for someone but sort of thankful at the same time. I hope the next person that is hired is able to do the job.
There is good job related news. The owner and the general manager spoke to me last week and want to promote me! I have never been promoted at a job before! It will probably happen in the new year.

Don't leave a roast out to cool before putting it in the fridge then head out to Wal Mart. If you forget to put a roast in the fridge the cat will eat it down to just a nubbin.
