Lovely, annoying day today…
I oversleep, but get up fifteen minutes before my shift. Which is when I need to leave my house to make to work on time. I have to shower and shave too, at the very least, but otherwise I’ll look like some hobo and not smell too nice.
So I call work, tell them “I’m sorry I’m running late, I’ll be there in about half an hour.” The manager who answers says “Okay, thanks for letting us know.” and that’s handled.
I get ready to go, and drive down to work, getting there a little earlier then I estimated I thought I would be.
Our store manager is there, who I’ve never seen in the store this early, is there and annoyed at me for being late. I apologize, but I’m not insanely late, and I did call fifteen minutes before my shift and warned them. Heck, we get managers sometimes who show up half an hour late for their shifts, or people who sometimes just don’t show up and don’t get in much trouble.
Anyways I get clocked in, shoved into back drive, and start work on prep, which I know is going to be an issue today, because I’m already getting a lot of orders.
About an hour into this…something happens to the register. Some sort of communication error. I call over a manager, and they manage to figure it out, and ask me how it happened.
I have no fucking clue. I just hit the ‘Total’ button to bring up my latest customer’s total.
Anyways it gets fixed…then half an hour later, something wigs out on the other monitor, where I punch in the cash or card stuff. And an order that does get paid out doesn’t say so up front. The store manager bitches at me like it’s my fault, like I forgot to take someone’s money.
1. No. No I didn’t.
2. If I had, you should have caught that it wasn’t paid out before handing the person the food.
I even managed to find the receipt for the order in our Re-Print Receipt stuff, to prove that, yes, I didn’t mess up.
So that’s just annoying, and the store manager is trying to fix it, unable to get a hold of our boss. Somehow, the problem fixes itself, and that’s the last that was left of it after I left for the day.
Ugh…Not a fun day. On the plus side, I got to go off order taking in my last hour of shift to finish prep and do random stocking.
