HAPPY NEW YEAR ( You Assholes at Pencils)

I've been told that it isn't just our store, but we're open New Year's Day! That's right, instead of being able to stay up late and actually have a few drinks, I'll probably be going to bed.  For what exactly? For nothing.  On New Year's Day, you can fire cannons down Main Street and not hit anything.  I suspect if people do brave the bad weather to come in the store, they'll just be there to return things, not to buy. Happy New Year, you greedy bastards!

So, here is my situation. I have been stuck at an absolutely shitty job at this pizza place where I have been for a little over a year now. My manager is a total bitch who is secretly bitter towards me because I am a full time college student. She is only two years older than me and is obviously jealous that I'm getting an education. She insults me on a daily basis and I am just done with this bullshit. My hours have also been severely cut and I only work two days all of this week. I figure what the hell, I'm only 18, why not work in retail instead? I have been filling out LOADS of applications in an attempt to be out of this shit hole by early January. Well, guess who called me this evening? You guessed it, Pencils. The guy wants me to be there for an interview at 4:00 pm tomorrow, for a cashiering position. Unfortunately, my options right now are very slim. I can't just quit the job I have now because my family is reliant on me for money and I have to buy my own textbooks for school. It is necessary that I have another job before putting in my 2 weeks notice. I do find it sad that I am desperate enough to still want this job even after reading through this site. So Pencils employees, what's a girl to do? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
