There's the finish line!

As of 1:57 pm (EST) today, I can officially say that I survived Liam's birthday, UNC Graduation/Mother's Day in a food service establishment, and all of my mixed feelings (mostly bad) about today.  Without losing my temper, (most of) my marbles, crying, or stabbing anyone who waits until you have the drink half full to say "Oh, did I forget to say I didn't want any ice?"

I might have done the last one, but we were running low on plastic knives and needed to save our silverware for paying customers, not employees who finally snap.  And plastic knives are flimsy and cost money.

I did walk away with free cheesecake, because I was the only mother on staff who worked today and we were handing out free desserts to moms.  I should have angled for two or three pieces, because we WAAAAY overprepped.  It was hot today, so no one wanted anything heavy and usually opted for cookies or a brownie.

Big Boss was plotzing when I was getting ready to leave.  Corporate says we have to give shit away, yet it still counts against us when we order to prepare and don't sell it.  Guess who is going to be trying to push heavy desserts on a nearly non-existent clientele this week?  This girl!

Today was our Superbowl, and now it mostly dies until August

Which means it's second job time.  At least for the summer.  I'll also be getting my 90 day raise in about a month, and that will make a huge difference.

But...pounding the pavement again.  Ick.

On a better note, I went to Free Comic Book Day. Warren  Wucinich drew this for me:

Doom! 004

I am SOOO getting a frame and putting it in the living room.  :)  Gir is my favorite.

I'm confused - are they letting you go until school starts back up, or are you taking a second job just to have one?

Everyone's hours are getting cut because this place becomes a ghost town over the summer. A temporary second job would help pick up the slack.
