But keep in mind that I have the lamest entry level job here, so...

I'm been working as a bag boy at a grocery store for over a year, and finally my manager happens to catch me slacking off about 10 minutes longer than my break (came back from lunch then just chilled in the break room). Now it's up to some other manager what should happen. It was a stupid ****ing mistake and all, but I'm just paranoid how this will affect my next job, assuming I do get let go. I dunno what my asshole manager is going to tell the next place I'm going to apply at. It's sure as hell better than what I do now.

Why would it affect your next job?

If you get fired, its not the end of the world.

..your a bag boy

The manager doesn't need another one, and you don't need your "job". It's more of a chore than a job

Entry level is flipping burgers or something. Bag boys is something they give to the mentally challenged kids (no offense to them of course, just saying)

Just explain your said of the story the manager and tell it won't happen again...if you've worked there for a year and this is your first offense, you will be fine....

This looks like a blog entry. Why is it a post on the Pit?

OnTopic: So what? If you do get fired, just don't mention why at your next job interview. Of course, if they ask, you could always say you got sick of being a bag boy.

Also, bag boy, is that a person that bags the groceries that are bought? Wish we had those in Norway...

Don't worry, no where you're going to apply to is going to call your previous employer.

I mean, seriously... You're a bag boy for f*cks sake, what kind of a career leap are you thinking of taking?

I worked at AMC Theatres before and applied and got hired at my current job (Kenneth Cole New York). They didn't even care to call for a reference at AMC. I doubt your next job will care about your grocery store employment.

If you're that worried about it then quit before he can fire you, that always looks better on a CV.

That is true to some degree. I'm not mentally challenged of course.

I'm just paranoid.. I do have bills though. Bah.

Bookstore, rather. It's a step, nothing really big or anything.

Even if you do get fired (which I doubt, a slap on the wrist is more likely), your next employer will most likely not call for a reference, especially from a grocery store.

With the given economy, one can do worse than being a bag boy.

talk to him. tell him you made a mistake and your sorry.
