Once again we had our 'MID' shift beginning at 11 am and finishing at 7 pm. When I inquired of our co-workers whether it had been busy the two days we were off and the replied that it had not been very busy, which only confirms what I have noticed over the past week......the crowds are getting thinner already. Thursday was no different, and thank goodness it was.
Once the computer malfunction was rectified the rest of the day went swimmingly well.....we would have brief bursts of activity at the 'Fountain', but for the most part it was a slow afternoon.....no complaints from me!
Another change introduced Thursday was a brief tutorial by our 'Fountain' supervisor Brian. Apparently we have been scooping ice cream too generously and headquarters wanted to refresh our memories as to what a 'single scoop' and 'double scoop' look like. Apparently our single scoops have been running about 8 oz, when they should be about 4 oz. The result is we have been plowing through ice cream at about twice the rate as the other stores. Personally, I thought from the beginning we were scooping too big, but when everyone else is giving large scoops it won't work to have one person scooping way smaller, so I just adjusted my scooping to whomever I was working with that day. Amazingly, the customers are still quite happy just getting their 4, or 8 ounces of ice cream!
The day went by quickly, and pleasantly.......once again we were sliding down the Gardiner River Gorge in our Beetle to our home for the evening.....life is good, and we are in a good place mentally, physically and emotionally. We are sooooo thankful we rolled our wheels and changed our view 7 weeks ago.
Thanks for stopping by!
