- After Work Recap!
- October 10th, 2009
So work was fun today. It was long, but it went by really really fast. Like super fast. Like imagine running, only faster (terrible analogy). ANYWAY, they sent me to front and T again, which you know, I don't mind, because it turns out I like working in the front and T, if not to just talk to guests and make people smile. At least I catch them before they get into hardcore serious competition mode. Speaking of competition, today we had a bevvy (bevvy?) of events: softball, cross-country, archery (yes, archery, arrows and legit bows), and some Team Canada baseball team that played the Houston Astros. It literally got to the point where I couldn't go out to the front of the property to check my trash cans because too many cross-country runners were just blocking my lane. It was really awkward. Look at the person, they make eye contact. I make a slight move to indicate me going in that direction wanting to get through, and then they just stand there. Awesome. Thanks.
I was ridiculously efficient and speedy at cleaning today. I went through stadium bathrooms like it was my JOB (oh wait....) and cleaned the stands really well too. And the dugouts. I was on fire when it came to work, which probably explains why the day went by so fast! Highlight of the day..well, there were two of those. First, a little kid and his dad were walking by and the kid was totally wearing a Peyton Manning jersey. For those of you who don't know, Peyton Manning is the starting QB for my favorite NFL team, the Indianapolis Colts. So I said: "Hey that is an amazing jersey." And the kid just lit up and was like: "YEAH! He's AWESOME!" And his dad just laughed and let us converse. Turns out he collects jerseys (the kid), and Peyton is his favorite. Any kid who's favorite QB is my favorite is a friend of mine!
Second thing that happened to make my night--well, there's this kid I work with that just doesn't work. He doesn't work, and talks too long without breathing (on and on and ON...) and nobody likes him. So he hitches a ride with me and my two co-workers (to our utter dismay) and we decide to go through a Wendy's drive thru so I can eat tonight. The kid gets all pumped like "YEAH! LET'S GO!" And we're just: "ok..".
So he orders, and the following ensues:
Me: Do you have money?
Him: Yeah. I got my card.
Me: And you have MONEY on that card?
Him: Uh, duh.
Now at this point I totally believed him. So when we get to the first window to pay, my card goes through, and he hands over his card. The guy at the window just gets the most hilariously disgusted look on his face and promptly says: "Your card's been declined." AH HA! We died laughing. He then goes on and on about how we just got paid, and he should have money, but he's not sure the amount, and blah blah. At this point all I'm thinking is "to get money, you have to show up to work...which you don't. And then you have to WORK WORK, which...well...you don't."
That was it. Made my night, possibly even my life here. And if everything is in bold in this post, blame it on LJ. I dunno. Usually I use bold to emphasize something interesting or funny, or even perhaps BOTH, but right now everything is in bold and, to keep myself honest, some of this ain't so interesting or funny. Or at least not to my blog's standards.
