Black and Blue Friday
This past weekend kind of turned into one long blur. Add on late night coffee runs and still being sick, and it was extra long. Today was the first time I got to sleep in for quite awhile, and I fully took advantage of it. Two things hinder me on days I can sleep in. One is that I am now used to working mornings, and seem to want to roll out of bed way to early every day. The next is that constant morning urge to need to pee. I fought both urges for hours, and woke up well rested, and with a dry bed!
Thursday, known as Turkey Day to the rest of the world. Found me opening at work. It wasn't near as busy as last year, but any holiday rocks to be a server. I made more in tips that day, than the total amount of my paycheck. Something that is both nice and disturbing. Being the holidaze I will not go into my rant about wages in this great state right now. I served great customers and snaked off the Turkey buffet all day. "Quality control" I call it, we do not want any customers eating bad food. I will have to say one, nameless server was very entertaining all day. The customers only selection was the turkey buffet, and than we simply had to decide if the customer was a senior or child or not. Than punch it in. This worker could not seem to get this concept down. And kept ending up with more tickets than actual customers. Each time throwing her into a panic. I was not sure were the drama was, because with only one main selection choice, Surprise! when the next customer came in, they were having turkey too!
After work I went to my brothers for the family dinner. Full of much more food. I was still not sure what I would be working on Friday morning, knowing it could be anything from starting at 5 30 AM to starting at ten. So I mostly kept my beverage selections to nothing stronger than Pepsi that night. I can say that it was a great dinner. Although I might have done to much "quality control" earlier to really look appreciative or hungry by dinner time. I would also like to note, that somehow, since I moved back in May, this is the first time I have actually seen this brother. Who lives clear across town. Be it we are in totally different social links, his hate for eating were I work, or that we are just such a close family! I snagged half a chocolate french silk pie when I left, which made me a great hit with my roommates.
Everyone should have a white mocha Steve! Git you some!!
