11 minutes

That’s how long I have before my laptop battery dies.

The electricity is off in the whole area. They had to do substation maintenance, and we had to close the store an hour early. We still didn’t get out of there before they turned it off. Ugh. The opening manager is going to be mad, but I don’t really give a damn. Some people came through right before we closed and had 3 different orders, all about $25 each. Who needs $75 worth of food from Taco Bell at midnight? Obviously these people do. They come through the same time every Saturday without fail. And then they’re back the next morning saying we left a bunch of stuff out and trying to get free food.

Okay, back to the point. Those huge orders caused us to be behind in our closing. Well, not really behind. We needed to be out of there at least 10 minutes early, that just didn’t happen. But hey, we did the best we could.


I started this post during the blackout last night, and was just too tired to finish by the time the lights came back on. They were supposed to be on by 3 AM, and they were everywhere I could see except for the hill I live on. We didn’t get electricity here until closer to 5 AM. I should’ve just went to bed, but it was too damn hot in here to sleep. I’m glad it’s over.

I can just here what the opening manager is going to say to me when I go in tonight. I forgot to turn off the breakers for the lights like we do every night. Hey, they were already off, and I didn’t think about it. I was trying to hurry up and get us out of there. We’re supposed to scrub on Saturday nights, and we didn’t get much of that done at all. Oh well. I guess it really wasn’t my fault, but I still feel badly about it. Kinda embarrassing, really.
