What a Day

It was a pretty uneventful day, although it was kind of long. For some reason I started waking up at 2 a.m. this morning and had a hard time sleeping, so when the alarm finally started going off at 5 I kept hitting snooze and didn’t get up until almost 6 a.m. I still made it to work shortly after 6:30 though. That’s one of the nice things about having the districts realigned. All three of my stores are within seven and a half miles of my front door. Not only that but it will (should) be an increase in pay for me as well. I lost my slowest store and picked one up that should make me an extra $600 a month or so. Can’t complain about that.

The ladies were pretty happy with me this morning. Apparently they and the customers are used to having their food take 30-40 minutes when it’s busy. The store is nasty, nasty and production crawls when it’s busy, such as on the weekends. There’s nothing on our menu that takes longer than eight to ten minutes to cook and our table turn time is supposed to be 22 minutes. The girls couldn’t keep up today. Most of the day their food was up before they could even get the drinks on the tables. What’s really funny is that although the store has been in a sales decrease for two years straight, my sales were up 15% this morning over last year. Funny how that works.

I think my biggest challenge their will be to get it clean. The restaurant is just extremely filthy. The floors, walls, vents, windows, even the light fixtures need to be cleaned. I left them a short cleaning list when I finally managed to get out of there at 5 this evening, hopefully it will get finished.

I was going to come home and post for a while, but the nasty nap monster caught hold of me and then mean Mr. gravity finished the job and I took a nap for a couple of hours, and THEN I watched Gladiator. I love the movie even if old what’s his name is a jerk.

I do have a couple of things to post, as well as a review and then I think I will hit the sack. I have to go back out to that store tomorrow and I don’t foresee getting out of there prior to six tomorrow night.
