My dad keeps getting mad at me for things he doesn’t understand. He thinks cup noodles and pillow ramen are the same thing. What do I have to do print out pictures of food for him on a shopping list? Fuck that shit!

I get a call telling me to go to an orientation today. I stupidly agree to do it. I’m like “Oh crap!” Now I gotta take a shower and get ready in like 3 hours. The only reason I agreed to was because my dad was bugging me to move the date up so he could go to the dentist. It’s not my fault you tried to save money by going to an incompetent dentist. While I’m bathing I overhear my dad say I need psychological help because I can’t find a job. Maybe I’m not the only one who needs something like that. I do this for you and then you say that about me. I can hear you in the other room! This place is small.

“I was in my room and I was just like staring at the wall
Thinking about everything
But then again I was thinking about nothing

And all I wanted was some chicken flavored pillow ramen and he wouldn’t get it for me.”

At least they knew I was coming. The whole thing was low key and funny at the same time. At least I didn’t have to tell my life story of employment like the deli. It was long drawn out and boring. And somebody at the same table as me was just talking about her parents getting separated because of an affair. (not to everybody but the person she was sitting next to) I thought it was I crazy because I thought it was too TMI.

At this one nobody really talked except for the people facilitating it. There were only 2 people; me and some other girl. The funniest thing they did was make us watch an anti-union video. It was short like 2 hours or so. When it was over I tried to call my manager because it was took place at another restaurant to say I completed the orientation. I couldn’t get through then one of the facilitators did and they couldn’t get through either. I think this job is a house of cards built on lies. My parents keep telling me to ignore the glaring red flags. Fine! But I don’t expect to stay there longer than a week.
