So, I'm sort of employed.
The other week the owner of the comic shop down the road PMs me on Facebook. He wanted to get together for drinks or something.
So I said, "Sure!" and we met at Red Robins.
We talked for a little while and he asked if I'd still be interested in working for the shop. I said, "Sure." So, I've been doing a paid internship there the last week and this week too.
Owner's already told me I'm going to get hired. When I'm put on payroll, I'll be working full time. Which, unfortunately, means I won't be able to help out at my old shop as much.
I've been filling in on weekends there, when the new owner is out of town at conventions and stuff.
I'm still locked in for a week in April, but after that? I can't make any promises.
The New Shop is very different from my Old Shop. They have a POS system, which, IMHO, stands for 'Piece of Shit.' Not a fan.
They bag and board EVERYTHING in the store. Part of this is because their sister store is a smoke shop. But I think they need to leave a browser copy out among the week's new releases. People aren't going to branch out and try new stuff if they can't sample it.
There's a lot of retrograme stuff in the store. Ugh. I hate video games and know dick about them.
Their collectibles are kind of 'meh.'
They sell boardgames and t-shirts and movies.
There are less than 100 graphic novels in the entire store.
The store is small.
On the upside, the people are nice. I've seen a lot of familiar faces at the store from my Old Shop. The boss is pretty cool. People who shop there seem to genuinely like the place.
It's just different.
And different is scary.
But I'm pretty sure I can make a go of it. :)
