Hey ya'll! Doesn't it always seem that the day back to work after a few consecutive days off is always SO MUCH worse than a normal day?
Today ended up sucking for so many reasons. I need to vent.
My coworker texted me and informed me she would be late. I happily agreed to count her drawers for her, even though she was in a totally different department. I arrive on the sales floor 10 minutes before the store opening; plenty of time to count co-worker's registers and move on to my own. WRONG.
Literally TWO MINUTES after I began counting her drawers, one of the managers walked by with the keys, and sauntered over to the doors to begin opening them, a full 8 minutes before we were scheduled to open.
I remark "Um, manager, can't we wait until the time we are scheduled to open? I am just counting these registers for someone else, I am not scheduled over here today. " She replies "Well, honey, I guess you'd better stay up here then."
So, I get trapped in a totally different department by the horde of sunday-morning shoppers (don't these people have anything better to do than hang out in a parkng lot until the store opens?!??), meanwhile my money for my register is just laying around on the counter in my department, totally unsupervised, just begging for someone to pocket it.
