Ok so tonight I am making a yummy yummy dinner and it all starts with the crock-pot. So this morning I had to run over to the store to grab a couple ingredients. Nothing major..just a few things. I went directly to the self checkout where 3 machines were in use and the fourth was broken. I took mental note that the person monitoring the whole process was in a white dress shirt, telling me that he is the store manager (everyone else was in those green polo shirts). WELL, knowing that I only had a couple items and needed to get to work soon I decided to go over to the one open lane with a real person. That was a mistake. Once I got there, it was obvious that there was some kind of problem and she was waiting for help. Since there was still someone in front of me, I went back to the self checkout, where ALL three people were still there and ALL having computer problems. One machine didn’t give the cash back, another wouldn’t take the cash, etc…so at this point it’s like 7:30am and I am just cranky so I go back to the real person who has just finished and starts to take my stuff. JUST before she scans the first item, the store manager asks HER how to open the cash drawer!! THE STORE MANAGER. He couldn’t do it and she actually had to walk over and help him. Finally he was like, oh go ahead and get her. SO she came back and checked me out.
Granted, it probably wouldn’t have been as frustrating if I had been more than half awake, but still, you would think that the store manager would at least know the basics of operating his own register!
The good news is, the beef ribs are simmering away in the crock pot and it smelled awesome!!!
But I did spill coffee all over my shirt the second I got to work. I have a feeling today could be interesting.
