What a week it was. I was scheduled to work about 35 hours while Jackie (my manager) was on vacation in Florida. I was kinda excited that she was gonna be gone for a week and that Todd (asst. manager) and myself would get to run the place. Todd is still fairly new to the company, so honestly, I was pretty much in charge. That was a nice feeling. Until Thursday. Thursday afternoon, I left work around 1:30 and got a phone call from Todd around 4 saying he needed me to open on Friday. I wasn’t supposed to go in until 11. He was sick. So, I go in, expecting him to get over his 102 fever and relieve me of my duties around lunchtime. Didn’t happen. I worked 11 hours straight, open to close.
So then I was free for the weekend. Or so I thought. He called me Saturday around 2 saying that the rash was coming back and his face was swelling. So I go in and let him go to the doctor. All in all I worked almost 48 hours in 6 days. May not sound like a lot, but when I typically only work 30 at the max, its a ton! The overtime pay will be nice though. It should be enough to help me get a kitten
Almost bedtime here. Just have to write one more thing….see above….
