I'm thinking in a Scottish accent

I've just finsihed my first week as a "Bookseller" at Borders in Birstall (It's one of those out of town shopping places with a big Currys and IKEA) and all in all it's gone well. Till work is a piece of piss and you get used to it before long, the actual "bookselling" is pretty menial and involes making things look pretty and working delivery, it's like working in a book supermarket which means that I can do it in my sleep.

I'm currently working Friday-Monday 30 something hours with varying shifts so coming down for the weekend is out the question for a while

Oh and the scottish accent thing. My manager is scottish and after spending 4 days straight with her I've started to think in a scottish accent, thoughts that pop up are strangely said in a scottish accent in my head and I think I'm going a little mad but maybe that's just the boredom :D

Jobs are like buses

Well after having waited three weeks for a reply for Borders I finally got a job offer on friday, an hour later i got a call from a pub offering me a job and this morning I was woken by some bloke from Currys also offering me a job. Three job offers in two days after getting nothing from anyone for 3 weeks, bloody typical.

I start work Monday but the first thing I need to do is ask for the weekend off :S not sure how well that will go down but I've got to ask seeing as I'm going down to Birmingham and there's no chance in hell I'm working instead.

If anyone wants a book for christmas call me :D
