For starters I finally stole a picture of Saturday's beautiful bride, LEX. I would have taken my own pictures but I was a little too far back for the zoom function on my ancient camera, the first digital camera. Ever.
My own personal pictures were all taken withen the first hour of the wedding when taking pictures was still a thought that occasionally crossed my mind. 6 Vodka's later and my thoughts alternated between, "I LOVE this song. Let's DANCE!!" and "I NEED another drink!"
Somewhere in my job description as Accounting Associate it reads, “Responsible for entering all receipts brought in by technicians.” I also believe that if you were to read the Technicians job description it would read, “Responsible for writing what was purchased and why on the back of each receipt.” Now I can say in all honestly that I am keeping up my end of the bargain here. Every day (or second day, close enough) I enter each receipt into our accounting system. The other end of the bargain, the one I’m not responsible for is more of a Moot point, as in nonexistent.
See each purchase goes under a certain account. For example, “Small Tools under 350 dollars”, “General Supplies”, “Tools for Service” , “Janitorial Expense” or “Shop Expense” just to name a few. It’s important in the long run that these be correct. Putting a Sledge Hammer under “Travel Accommodations” might skew the company’s profit and loss statement. ANYWAY, yesterday I was hit with a slew of descriptionless (fake word) receipts. Exactly how am I supposed to know what a “Weller Iron Professional 25W” is and where it might belong? Or how about a “BAG.RBKXTPRO.WH”? I’m sorry but we do not have an account for the alphabet.
I think the part that bugs me is that the Technician did actually write on the receipt but failed to write anything helpful. He wrote “Approved by Tim” (the Tech Manager). Well that’s fantastic, I’m sure glad Tim told you to go ahead and buy yourself that BAG.RBKXTPRO.WH. I hope it’s everything you wanted and more. Perhaps you can also bust out your new “United Chemi 100UF @ 400V” and have a party.
WHERE…. AM I…. SUPPOSED…. TO PUT THESE THINGS?
Hi Tech 8,
I have a couple of receipts here and since I don’t work small tools (other than Technicians) on a day to day basis I can’t decipher what these are. I have receipt from Canadian Tire for a BAG.RBKX something or other, a Weller Iron from B&E and a Cutting Wheel from The Bolt Supply House. What exactly are these things?
UGH, the life of an Accounting Associate.
After a stressful day of decoding gibberish I was off to a fashion show rehearsal. Now I love doing fashion shows but I’ve never loved rehearsing. I suppose that’s why I never really excelled at sports. Game? Yes please. Practice? No thanks. Practices are for suckers. If you’re good, you’re good. If you’re bad, you’re bad. If you’re mediocre, you’re mediocre. Hi, my name’s mediocre.
The reason I hate rehearsal has less to do with the actual rehearsing, I could walk up and down a runway all day long. For free. It has more to do with the fact that they're always scheduled around 6-6:30, SUPPER TIME. It must be universal, they're trying to indirectly keep the models skinny. A message within a message.
Fashion Show Coordinator: You COULD eat but rehearsal starts at 6:30.
Model: No problem, i'll just eat at 5 then.
Fashion Show Coordinator: Did I say 6:30? I mean't 5:00.
I’m sorry, I’m here in body but in spirit I’m at Moxie’s eating my Cheeseless Quesadilla. It actually ended up being fun though because Mel and Kam were there. They're the stars of the runway show and the upcoming fall campaign. See...
In keeping with the theiving photos from facebook theme...
Mel and Kam are on the right. Those pictures are small but they were the only two I could scrounge up.
And this is my other girlfriend's face on this past Spring Campaign's poster. She attends functions she doesn't even know about.
I wonder if she learned anything.
