Sleepy Work Icon

(no subject)

In an effort to make sure things don't get screwed up tomorrow, I'm going in. On my day off. There are two fairly large orders that have to be out before noon and only C is there to take care of it until 11. She could *probably* do it if she really focused on it, but I just want to make sure that it gets done, especially if there are more orders called in before those two orders need to be out.

So, Day 16, here I come!

Today I was interrupted in sleeping four times. Once was at 9 in the morning, and I don't even remember what that call was about. I really have absolutely no clue. The second was at 11 in the morning. Something was wrong with the money. I switched the pile of $20s between the deposit bag and the till bag. I told her to check the deposit and see if it was way short. It was. Then I got ANOTHER call from D, who was doing our inspection (which we failed) and wanting to know where I kept X, Y and Z in the office. THEN the last one was at 3:00, when I decided to go back to bed for a nap before work since I had been interrupted all those times this morning, to figure out what to do with credit cards or some such nonsense. THAT'S what the first phone call was about, I think. Ah, whatever.

So, yeah, lots of interruptions today. Although, if it were not for those two huge orders that interrupted my sleep we would have been nowhere near our projected sales for the day. Summer is really hitting this store badly. I am not happy about this. What's interesting is that our daytime business is really picking up while the nighttime business is really dropping off. With the exception of assholes who like to call 10 minutes before closing time. Yeah. I hate those people. Especially when it's for a delivery.

But, I got everything done that I needed to get done. So, hopefully, I won't be in there too long tomorrow. Just get the orders out and then come home and clean a little, maybe go sit poolside before cleaning. We'll see. :)

My family is nuts

It's true.

No, really.

I talked with Aunt Gloria today, she's having a spat with one of her sisters over the grandchildren. That's a whole thing I'm not even bothering to go into. Anyways, she was telling me about one of my cousins.

He married this girl, M, about 2 years ago. She was all of a sudden pregnant, even before the honeymoon. WOW! Amazing you might say. Not if you are getting it on before you get married. Bad little Catholics. Anyways. So, he just found out that he is going into foreclosure on his house and his cars. Why you ask? Well, he works for the fire department and she's a realtor. Or so he thought. She's been telling him for months that she's making lots of money selling real estate, so not to worry about the bills, she's taking care of everything.

Except, she wasn't. She's been writing bad checks all over town, not paying the mortgage, car notes or credit card bills. Oops. Oh, and she's not a realtor. It's true. She's a receptionist at a Dodge dealership. I somehow doubt that is big money. She also doesn't even have her realty license. Oops again. Oh, and she's pregnant again. The kid may not be his. She's got two or three guys calling her at all hours of the night. While my cousin, her husband, is lying next to her in bed, and she's talking to them on the phone! And letting him hear part of the conversations. WTF?

So, impending divorce, he's filing for bankruptcy, apart from her (as advised by the attorney) and getting a DNA test on the kid once it is born. At least we know the first one is his, she looks just like him.

How did I turn out to be the normal one? Seriously.

In other news, right now there are phone repair people at the store. I had no idea they were coming. Isn't that nice of corporate to let me know?
