I had the last two days off.
I close tonight.
I have the weekend off.
I SHOULD call off today and give myself a 5 day weekend.
However, I just don't appear to be able to make that phone call as I've already showered and prepared for work.
This should be a shorter evening for me as I have extra hours I need to cut due to a lack of coverage in general. We are missing key players around my departments and in my departments, however I am told there is a rainbow full of butterflies and employees at the end of the tunnel and I just need to keep on trucking on to get there.
Tonight I am the lone ranger in Plumbing and Electrical (and probably Appliances) which means another shift where all I do is talk to customers and fail to accomplish any of the tasks that I feel I need to accomplish.
Then, come Monday it's Inventory time which is a week of hell.
I'm really looking forward to the fiscal year ending as well as the Inventory Period. Mainly Inventory.
This way I get a fresh slate instead of coming into messes left by previous ownership.
I also get to see if what I'm doing is making a difference for good or for evil and see what adjustments need to be made. I'll have a clear look at the end of year numbers set by my predecessor (he was there all but the last quarter that I took over) and have something to shoot at coming under. I already have a few things that I've been waiting until after inventory to implement that will help me get some more accurate numbers than the way the current system is set up.
And now, my belly hungers.
Is today going to be Spicy Chicken Sandwiches at Carl's Jr?
Am I going to have a McRib or two?
Will I settle for Del Taco's Spicy Chicken Quesadea?
Oh, I'm hungry alright.
