Oh yeah, last night was fun. Ad set is supposed to start at 8:15, my supervisor is supposed to be there at 7:45 to get everything set up and whatnot. I get to work, take a few minutes in the break room before I clock in and head to the office. No sign of my supervisor, I think nothing of it, maybe she's getting some last minute scanning done, or getting the RF guns. 8:15 hits, still no sign of her. The whole team has arrived, so I go onto the floor to look for her. I find the closing manager (who I've nicknamed A Plus because she somehow manages to keep cool under pressure... like last night when she's calling everyone over the walkie to help cover customer service and NO ONE is listening to her), and ask her "Did you know [supervisor]'s not here?"
"Oh, NC Tony, don't tell me that."
"No sign of her."
"Do you have her phone number?"
"Not on me, I forgot to grab my phone before I left the house."
So, A Plus finds my supe's phone number, and it turns out my supervisor FORGOT there was an ad set last night. This has NEVER happened before. Luckily she only lives a half hour away, so for the next half hour the senior ad set member has to take over. That would be me. So while A Plus prints out the ad set planner, I grab an RF and randomly scan a few signs to find out what we're supposed to put up, let everyone know and assign them sections.
My supervisor comes in, finds me, and tells me we were supposed to set our RF's for the 30th, not the 29th (on ad set the RF guns have to be set for the next day). So now we have to re scan everything we've already scanned. Fortunately, most of us were less than halfway done, so it wasn't like we had to rescan everything. It just took us an hour longer to get everything scanned, and when I left at 2am, there were still people putting up signs (and the only reason I got to leave at 2 was because I had to be up in four hours to get my son ready for school in the morning).
Last night was.... not a nightmare, just a little annoying.
