1:35 pm - I am commited to fighting cancer in my community!

I know far too many people whose lives have been touched by cancer. Chances are, you know them too. That’s why I’m taking action against cancer by supporting the American Cancer Society Relay For Life event right here in Simi Valley, California.

Relay is an overnight event that unites our community in a common effort to raise much-needed funds for cancer research, education, advocacy, and patient services. Every year, the funds we raise help bring the American Cancer Society one step closer to eliminating cancer from our lives for good, but we can’t stop now. Because there’s no finish line until there’s a cure.

I hope you’ll be able to join us for this year’s event. Please click on the link below for more information, including details of the inspirational Survivors’ Lap and the moving Luminaria Ceremony. If you can’t join us, will you please visit the site and make a donation to support our efforts? Either way, you will make a real difference in the lives of people facing cancer – and in the lives of the people who love them. Thank you!

Please visit my personal donation site:


I will be walking this Sunday, September 25th from 3AM to 5:pm

No one updates in here anymore... I no longer work at the corporate music store anymore... but I love to reflect on the wonderful memories. Like when that guy took a crap in the used rap section.

10:00 pm - Wherehouse Stores 1358 & 1475

Hello all, I don't know if anyone reads this anymore, but I guess it's worth a shot. I've recently quit the Wherehouse after working at the ones in Santa Barbara and Goleta for three years as an Assistant Manager. Now that I'm moved to the Bay Area, I think I may have to return. Does anyone here work at stores 1358 or 1475 in SF?

12:27 am - Woo hoo
pucksnplucks Wow this is awesome. I too need a music store anonymous 12 step help program. I had worked at Sam Goody #783 in San Jose for a year and a half. And then last month, we, like so many others, closed down. So what did I do? Got a job at Tower, that's what. So now I've been working at Tower #122 for a week now. Yes, I too, am a music store whore. The first step is admitting you have a problem right?

7:04 pm - Wherehouse

My sisters ex boyfriend gave her a Wherehouse gift card for her birthday...
There arn't any Wherehouses open around us anymore. There is one by my work but it is the super gay.

When I worked for the Wherehouse and someone got a gift card and didn't want anything from our store, they had the ability to demand cash back for the gift card.

I am trying to convince my sister to do this.

I hate the Wherehouse and I am so glad that I do not work for them anymore!

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2003
4:13 pm - Yay!! I got my wish!

I'm so excited. I'm back at my old store as of tomorrow [Sam Goody 4572], the VP may be paying my old stupid-head [for not wanting to swear multiple times] boss Rich a visit, and i'm filing a MAJOR complaint [sexism, favoritism, bad work ethic] through human resources.. here's how my "transfer story" went:
*walk into store.. head to manager.. no look of leaving on my face* Can i please have my paycheck?
*rich looks at me.. blinks.. says nothing..* me- "i kinda need that money."
rich- "i don't give a sh*t what you want. oh, and you're f*ckin' fired"
me- "huh? why?" rich- "insubordination, too many cigarette breaks, immaturity.." *rants on with about 10 other random things*
me- "umm...." *assistant walks up, sighs* "i'll get your check for you sharon."
i follow her into the office.. "um.. is he serious?" her- "well.. he never mentioned it to me.. i'm not sure"
*we walk back onto the sales floor* rich- "oh by the way.. you're not really fired. i just wanted to see your reaction. but you will be if you f*ck around with anything else"
me- "oh.. about that. i need to be transfered back to stamford."
*he gets a dumbfounded look*... "good. one less f*cking thing for me to deal with."
isn't he great? >:( i'm so happy to be gone from that store.. but now i don't even want to set foot in it without one of my football-player size friends.

current mood: cheerful

11:13 pm - i can't believe..

I can't believe what I'm going to do in a few days. I am so miserable at my current store [Sam Goody 4526], double thanks to my store manager for making me cry multiple times. So, I'm literally going to beg my old manager [who i'm not too fond of, but she doesn't yell.. and i'm not exagerating.. my current boss raises his voice at me.. for things that i didn't have anything to do with] to transfer me back. if she will, it's only an extra 10 minutes commute.. which i'll gladly accept in exchange for not bawling on the clock weekly.

current mood: frustrated

2:42 pm - Just thought i'd say hi..

My name's Sharon, & i'm a Sam Goody employee. It's truely a black hole.. i've been working for this company as a part-timer for THREE YEARS.. as long as i've been legally able to hold a job. Started at 4572 in Stamford, now i'm at 4526 in White Plains. I mostly do new releases and shipment, though i can do anything else as well [including stuff with keys i shouldn't be able to.. woohoo corrupt past management!] I've tried to get other jobs.. but i just can't escape. It really is an addiction.. i have friends who worked and quit, swore they'd never be back.. and now are.. for the 4th time. Just wanted to introduce myself. :)

current mood: okay

9:56 pm - *waves hello*

Hi all. I'm new.

I had an interview with Best Buy this afternoon (I'm desperate) and had to sit across from the guy smiling and telling him how great it would be to work there because I loved music so much.


So I'm hired. I'm working in "operations" which is incredibly vague...

Corporate music here I come!


current mood: depressed

8:46 am - newbie

this community is too funny. hi, my name is dina, i just joined. i worked at sam goody for nearly 2 years of my life and it was the best/worst thing thats ever happened to me. i saw in the interestes "over worked and underpaid" and one of my managers always use to bitch about how we were all "over worked, underpaid, and under appreciated". i was at 4521 region 501 if anyone cares. i ended up quitting for sexual herassment charges my store decided to conviently look the other way to. the beginning was great but my store actually crashed and burned while i was working there. we had 2% shrik when i got there and the last inventory was 16%.

anyone else chase shop lifters? i chased one with a friend through snow for 8 blocks and then a cop saw us and grabbed him and like threw him down to the concrete. he was off duty and we had to wait 2 hours for a real cop to take him in. yea, lol.

anyway, hi, i'm new.

current mood: bored
