Last night and tonight I was scheduled for the patio at work. This is a primo section. Everyone likes to sit outside. The only problem is that it was really windy last night and the napkins and even the chairs were blowing all over the place. It's windy again today and the temperature has dropped quite a bit. So, I'm hoping tonight will be okay out there. I tend to get really cold easily, so if it's cold tonight, I'm going to have a tiny problem. Moving around a lot helps, but still.
I paid my rent today and my cell phone bill. It feels good to be all caught up. I actually owed roomie a few ducketts and I paid him in full - so we are totally square. Yay! Now, I just need to start putting money away when I make it instead of spending it. It's hard when you make $60 here and $80 bucks there and it's in like quarters and dollars and fives. You just spend it here and there and before you know it, your broke. I have to start hiding money from myself or something.
They called a freind of mine in for a meeting today at work. I know that means she's getting fired. That's how they do it. She was in the bottom of the sales report two weeks in a row. But hey, someone has to be in the bottom. Ya know? I hate to see her go because I like her. Luckily she has a 2nd job so it won't be tooooooo bad. On the brighter side, the more people they fire, the more shifts I'll hopefully get.
Last night I was a selling machine. I sold 20 pieces of glassware and I sold an all access card which is HARD to sell. That makes two that I've sold so far. We've been open three weeks so I'm not even averaging 1 a week yet. Hopefully that'll pick up though.
I had a little moral dilemma last night. Someone paid with a credit card and he signed the bottom and then he lef the tip and the total completely blank. For like 3 hours I walked around thinking about what to do with it. I was SO SO SO tempted to write my own tip in there. I mean, did he forget to fill it in? It's like, if you wanted to stiff a waitress, wouldn't you make sure you drew a line through those spaces? I certainly would. After I thought and thought about it. I decided to leave it alone and turn it in without a tip. I mean, it's just now worth losing my job over ten bucks or whatever it would have been. Ya know??
But, damn, I really wanted to do it. The old me would have definitely filled in my own tip. But, at least I can sleep soundly knowing I did the right thing.
What would you guys have done??
