Exam time, laptop stolen

I’m done with Math. Wooo !  The test was not easy, but not hard, either. Let’s say it was guess estimated.  Today, I’ll have  Ecology and Spanish, and tomorrow, Physics .  Wednesday is my last day, then, Vacation time !!!!! < happy  dance >

Oh, I forgot to tell you. We had a group presentation last week on Ecology. Group was just me and my lab partner, another Filipino. And guess what, he choked ! ! ! Good thing I managed to take over the discussion, and our teacher said it was individual grading. I wanted to wring his neck myself.  That’s what he gets for cramming. (>~<)  I had to help him finish his part of the presentation the whole night at school. We both went  home at 5:30 AM  Thursday, the day of our presentation.  Nasty business.

Alright, about my Mom’s laptop. …………… here’s my story.

I brought mom’s laptop  to  workplace.  Well, my sister borrowed mine , and so I borrowed mom’s.  Around 8:30 Pm, a man came, ordered a pint of ice cream, a flavour that wasn’t displayed on our menu, a strawberry cheesecake flavour.   The laptop was on the counter, and I didn’t think to keep it out of arm’s reach when I went in to the freezer room  to get the ice cream.  It only took a minute to get it, but when I got out, the man was gone, and so was the laptop. Damn ! I called 911, and my boss, then, a cop came and interviewed me, my boss who was at home told the cop there was a video , but it was being recorded at her house, and yes, she saw what happened. The guy took the laptop as soon as my back was turned,  and ran off … he didn’t have a vehicle. When I told my parents about it, my mom freaked out… she didn’t care about her laptop, but she complained about my boss letting  just one person  work at night, and a girl at that.  

It was weird, actually. Minutes  before this incident, an old man came by to buy ice cream, then told me it was dangerous to work alone at night , especially in winter… then he  asked what school I go to, and when I told him, he informed me there were already 7 assaults that occured at our school last month and 1 just last week. I know all about last week.  Then , he gave me a $ 20 tip, and told me to keep it, and not put it in the tip jar. He also gave me a card . He was  a sherrif.   

 Sunday night, I went to work again. Two math classmates came  to keep watch until I closed the store at 10 PM, then we went to Denny’s for an all nighter. They were my study pals…. problem is, what about next time ? Who’s gonna come to watch over me while I work?  Mom promised she’d come early to pick me up and would just wait outside the store.  I really want to quit this job, but this is the only one I can find that works around my school schedule.

Oh, wow ! I didn’t know there was a Filipino on Glee’s cast. I’ve heard good things about this show, but I just can’t find time to watch  tv nowadays, and if I do find the time,  I watch History, Military, and national geographic channels.  Oh, and ID channel, and not to forget SyFy.  (^__^)

Anyone interested in astronomy ? Here’s something that I found from one of the blogs on WordPress. Click it…. it’s awesome !  Do you know the voyager is now 9,000 B miles away from the sun, and do you know that the signals and images we are still getting from Voyager 1  at this very moment have been beamed to us from Voyager  four years ago ?

    AH, I’m so scared for you!! I do hope you stay safe, I also hope they get that guy who stole your laptop.

    For real, sometimes you think your safe in your job, then you get hit with the cold hard reality that people suck and will do what is ever in the book to get what they want.

    So glad to hear that you have friends to look after you and your mother to pick you up.

    Well you stay safe. Also, good luck on your tests.


    • sighs….. i know it’s dangerous to be staying alone at night. I usually stay up to 11:30 PM… I close the store at 10 PM, but I clean up the place before I leave, and it usually gets done at 11:30

    Oh, have they found the guy who stole the laptop? Good God you’re okay and you really have such good friends ah. I hope it won’t happen again, I think it brought so much worries to everyone.

    Try to watch Glee. I know she’s not on scene most of the time. I’ll be posting some videos. For you to see who she is. Hihi. 😀


    • I’m supposed to be the one to call the police when the videos are available, but I don’t work til Thursay because of the exams, and the chance of getting it back is dim. I don’t think the police will bother with one stolen laptop. I’m just happy I wasn’t harmed. Being alone is really dangerous. In fact, this is one of the most dangerous job in the US. Bad men enter the stores and rob….

      Yes, I will watch Glee. I don’t think it’s on cable …. I’ll check it on the regular networks.
