Strange things are afoot at the Circle K; I took a veto week from LOST and Crêpes. Though,we did celebrate our weekly viewing of course! We recreated the breakfast scene between Ben and Kate, and enjoyed an old world meal while eagerly learning about Ricardo's past.

Though training @ jetBlue is complete, (I have the diploma to prove it) and my normal working schedule has begun, I however, can't admit quite yet that I have adjusted to my new responsibilities.
I actually have a lot of experience dealing with frustrated people. I managed apartments for 6 years, and I get it! I've even done my own fair share of yelling and arguing and accusing over the phone, hassling over a bill or a charge or an unexpected what have you; but never, never have I personally attacked.
