Sleepy Work Icon

(no subject)

I'm really stiff this morning. Probably because I lounged around in bed so much. Started a load of laundry. Shower, then RG for an hour of football. And chicken fingers. I'll be going in in my uniform. Sad, no?

Made decent money last night. Was kind of funny, since I was an hour late. Oops. I thought I was scheduled from 6-9, but it was 5-10. I walk in and M asks me why I'm an hour late.
"What do you mean? I'm five minutes early!"
"You were scheduled at 5."
"Bullshit. Really?"
I go run and look at the schedule.
"Oh crap. I'm sorry! I'm so used to being 6-9 on Fridays!"
"Just tell G that you had to stay late at your other job."
So, I go over to G and ask for my bank and he asks why I'm an hour late, and I tell him I thought I was scheduled 6-9.
"We figured you just had to stay late at your other job."
"No, I didn't go in today. My back was still sore."
"Oh."
"Am I in trouble?"
"Nah, we weren't slammed, so it's ok."
"You could have called you know."
"Yeah, but no big deal."

I love this place. :)

So, after work I went to 4th, had a slice and talked with A from corporate for a while. We talked about hiring practices, bleeding stomachs, HR debacles and Target. Good times. I left there and headed over to Congress for a free show. Pretty good stuff. I enjoyed Molehill Orchestra. I was more amused by all the willow dancers, though. They crack me up.

Left about midnight, came home, got the heating pad (lunarcamelI'll give it back soon, I swear!) and went to bed.

Let's hope that this stupid back fixes itself by Monday. I'll be going in early.

OH! I didn't tell you the best part of my night. I start the car up after a delivery and it's being all...well, not wanting to get going. Uh oh. Make it to a gas station. Got some gas, the low fuel light had just come on, and decided to check the oil. BONE FUCKING DRY. Threw a quart in, it's much better now. Guess the heat really does a number on the oil. Gotta keep an eye on that.

Ok, need to check on laundry and get showered and ready to go to watch some pigskin and then...work. I am actually scheduled 6-9 tonight. :)

Ah, football

So, I just sat down at the bar at the RG. Had a nice spot to watch the UF/UT and the FSU/Clemson game. Ordered an iced tea and was just about to order my usual chicken fingers, when my phone rings. "The earlier you can come in, the better."
"Alright, I'll be there in ten minutes."

So, I tip Aribe and head out the door. No football for me. I catch a little ASU and UA action on the radio during the evening and Bobbie, bless her heart, was my own personal ticker for UF and FSU scoring.

I got to work and...it wasn't busy. Why the hell did he call me in early?
"Just to be prepared."

*sigh*

It did wind up getting busy about 7:30/8:00, but I was on the run from hell at 8. I took a triple. That usually will take me about 35-40 minutes. This one took almost an hour. I went from the store at Swan and Speedway to Craycroft and 5th, then headed to 4th and Forgeus (which is west of Country Club which is out of our delivery area) only to find that the address didn't exist. Then headed to Ft. Lowell and Columbus, then back to Swan/Speedway. As I'm approaching Speedway my phone rings. It's the chick I tried to deliver to on 4th. It's 10 blocks east of where I was told to go. So, I'm kind of nearby (not really) so I head over with her pizza. *sigh*

I get back and there are five deliveries left on screen. There was six when I left, which means that Mike took the other six while I was gone for a freaking hour. I take the last run, which is another triple, but they are all to the Sheraton. Kind of lucked out there.

I take the first one in, it's a fairly large order for a bunch of soccer kids. $10 tip, not too shabby. Then I head back to the car to get the other two deliveries for rooms on two different ends of the freaking hotel. By the time I finished that delivery, I was already gone for 30 minutes. FOR ONE DELIVERY! I ran my end of day, folded some boxes and left for the night. I'm still walking funny, but that's ok. I need to be at like 75% for Monday, so I'll probably just stay for 2 hours at brunch. Sitting for long periods of time seems to make things worse. Long enough to see Raising Arizona. :) :) :)

Ok, off to bed with me. Need to find something to read while I heat up my back.
