8:28 am - Sunday - 52º F, 66% humidity, wind 2 mph out of south southeast......blue skies from horizon to horizon.....forecast high will be 80º F.
As reported we were back to the 'CLOSE' shift, which I think we prefer. I realize that they tend to move you from shift to shift, but I would not be unhappy if they left us on the 'CLOSE' shift the rest of the summer.
Since we didn't have to leave for work until 1 pm I took time to do a hand wash on the VW as it was looking pretty sad, and then vacuumed out a few weeks of sand and other debris. I'm starting to feel at home and develop new routines.
We were at work by 1:20 pm....since I work in the Fountain my shift begins at 1:30 pm and ends at 9:30 pm while TLE's shift as a cashier begins at 1:45 pm and ends at 9:45 pm. The fountain closes at 8:30 pm and the store closes at 9:30 pm......it takes about 40-45 minutes to clean up the Fountain after a day of slinging ice cream, chili dogs, nacho cheese, etc. so I still have 15-20 minutes at the end of my shift before I 'clock out' for the night.
When we arrived the afternoon rush was in full swing and I was immediately busy salting and heating pretzels to refill the pretzel machine, and from there until 5 pm (lunch time) it seemed like a blur. Suddenly TLE was there reminding me it was 5 and time for lunch......
Mean while, back at the 'ranch' more of our fellow co-workers are coming to the point where they may be leaving TVC, also. The working environment continues to deteriorate, and many are not happy......just reconfirms our decision to leave when we did.
Thanks for stopping by!
