Also, why do I seem to only havy sexy dreams the night before Shark Week starts?  So, so unfair.

Not as unfair as it's gonna be to Sausage Fest Incorporated if they give me any grief today.  As long as they just stay out of my way, let me do my job, and not get cutesy (Good Time Charlie, I'm lookin' at you), everyone will be allowed to live.

Thank the gods I open today.  S opened the past two days, and I don't know where Big Boss got the idea that S had any business training new hires, but I have got A LOT of re-training to do.  I am NOT going to have people thinking it's okay to eat food on the clock (S actually took an order yesterday WHILE SHE WAS STILL CHEWING.  I almost passed the fuck out from shock), hang out in the kitchen staring at their phones when "there's nothing to do," or take those damned 20 minute smoke breaks,  Nope, nope, nope.

In other words, I am NOT going to let the place go to hell while BB is on vacation.  She doesn't need to come back to a mess and, frankly, I don't want to work in a mess.

Oh, and irony of ironies:  one of the new hires has the same name as The Bully.  *sigh*  AND she gave me attitude yesterday because I told her she had to use the dish machine, not hog the triple sink.  That's for BoH dishes.  And taking two and a half hours to hand wash dishes is NOT going to fly with me.

I DO think I put Mr. J "I lift heavy things because I lifted a lot of weights in jail" in his place.  He tried that bullshit again with me (I don't know if he was expecting me to be intimidated or impressed), so I casually let it drop that I used to be a kitchen manager for the Northampton Co. Jail work release program.

Translation: I am neither impressed nor intimidated, child.  I used to make an entire kitchen of your clones behave, or I'd throw their asses back over the wall.


On the up side, after yesterday, I am +/- $8 short of making what I did in tips last week.  And I've got four days left!  And since no one seems to want to stay on a register, so much the better for me.

Actually, maybe I'll just let them screw themselves by hanging out in back while BB is gone.  That won't fly when she comes back.  And if flirting with Manager Tightpants is a bigger priority than the number on your paycheck...well, more for me!

(Honestly, I don't see the attraction.  Objectively, he is cute.  But how do they miss the blinking neon sign floating above his head that says "Player"?)

In other news...there is no other news.  I swear, all I do is work and come home.  The heat has been getting to Pete, so there haven't even been the usual Jeopardy! shenanigans.  :(

I really need an adventure.  Soon.

I have the same issue with sexy dreams. Every single month!

Almost every post affirms my decision to get out of food service when I did. And your courageousness!

Also, I could use a player about now.

I know it's a bit far, but if you and Kent want to take a Boston trip for your adventure, we have an air mattress and many, many bars in walking distance!

Make all the tips!

Since I work largely on commissions I don't mind when my coworkers slack off. It just means more for me. However, on hourly based job, that's not going to fly.

You work so hard! I hope BB appreciates it!

I love your restaurant adventures, but hope you have some other adventures soon, like book adventures.
