Boy things going on Here....

Hi there. Things have taken a twist at the new job. Well let me start here after Thursday night on Friday the one girl I told you about was really nice and even apologized to the head waitress. But she only apologized because the owner was there that night..

Heading on to Saturday morning I was there from 7 AM to 10:30 AM and then I called the owner and told them I was ready to be on my own. Well that evening I got called in because one of the other girls was sick and had to go home. I made 20 dollars in four hours. Not bad really. Just being new it made me feel good.

Then last night I got called in because the girl giving us so much grief didnt show up when she was suppose to at 2. She was suppose to work from 2-10 and she came in at 10 thinking she had to work from 10-6. Well I was told to have her call the owner/boss when I saw her and the boss wasnt happy with her. In a 7 hour shift I came home with 32 dollars and some odd cents..

Well today we have a meeting at 3:30 and I get this Twitters hours for the rest of the week and then next week I get my own hours and number to clock in with. So two 10PM shifts a week compared to five isnt bad. I can handle that. The only thing is I am the only waitress from 10-6. I am just hoping I can do it. The owner is going to leave her phone on for me if I have any questions.

The girls seem to be having a harder time with this new schedule than I thought. Esp Kora for some reason. She is just cranky lately. I am trying to be understanding with why she is alway whiny but I also need to be firm and get the why's out of her.. Life is taking quite the Twist here.

Its hot and I am just wondering if it will ever rain.. LOL.. It has rained but not enough to make my yard look green again after the two months with no rain really.. Yikes huh??? I have made a new scarf but still working on it. I put beads in the scaf this time and I am putting beads on the fringes. Its really cool to see. I will have it done in a few days and then I am working on another scarf with red,white and blue stars. I bought the stars for hairties but I wanted to see what I could do with the scarf for it. Its a white scarf with red,white and blue stars..

I also have another baby blanket made that was suppose to go to one of my co workers at McD's but now I am not working there I dont know if I should give it them. They are a young couple and there first baby. I really dont want to walk back into the McD's that I quit. I talked to one of my ex coworkers the Saturday and I guess the manager there has lost more than half her night crew.

I am just glad I am gone from there. I am loads happier at McD's. Well I need to go do a few things.Jeff has his appointment tonight and I need to go make dinner now where we can just heat it up when we come home and then I go to work. Talk to you all soon. Have a good week. N..

Flustered already.. Yikes.. I worked by my self lasst night. I worked the 10 to 6 shift and I was the only waitress there. but I did ok but when it came to counting my drawer this morning and counting out the other till, I was like 30 dollars short and I sure as hell didnt pocket that money. No way Jose.. LOL.. I am slightly pissed off because I thought I could handle that much and no way. I have to go and do it all over tonight. Hopefully I wont be short tonight. If I am I think I will call it quits because where is the money going and why am I short. But thougth I would highlight this instead of making a new post...

Glad it's working out for you at the new job - bet the tips feel great after McD's. Keep the blanket for someone else...

I hope tghat ash being short didn't happen again...Ot I should say won't happen again....Because then it means it is too much for one person to handle---maybe someone who sees you are alone has their hand in the till....!

I hope this job works out for you, my dear.

THAT CASH....This one finger trping too fast really gets screwy--I make so many mistakes because I am going to fast! LOL!

We know you didn't pocket the money, Tweetey. There are times when the drawer is short and times when it is over for even the most honest person.

It sounds like it's a bit scary being on your own so quick like that - YIKES! I'd be scared to death! You did it though - and like you said - the jury is still out on this job. Sometimes it will fit and sometimes it won't no matter how hard you try. Give yourself a little time and then you can always make the decision to leave if you have to. (I'm telling you - I was so glad to hear that that stupid manager at McD's lost her whole night shift! LOLLLOL! Couldn't happen to a nicer person...)

Hang in there. Hope the girls get settled into the new routine soon, too.

I detest doing anything with a cash register - give me figures on the abstract n I'm fine, I have especially register phobia because of fears of shortages .

Hope everyone adjusts ok.

Wow, hi!!!

Just so much going on. You are always up to something! I am so glad to hear you are in a situation making tips. They will begin to add up...and you're so kind and friendly people will start to show their appreciation. It will be worth it.

Iam sorry to hear the girls are having a hard time adjusting to the new schedule. Hopefully you'll be able to reassure them that things are going to be okay and to get positive. Theywill also see benefits eventually I hope.

Great to check in with you...I've been so would take a long story. Hopefully I will have time to catchup soon on my blog with different news etc.

Big hugs

How's it going now? Did you get the till thing straightened out?
We used to have a waitress who always had the till screwed up. When she'd make an error, she'd re-ring the ticket without voiding her mistakes. She drove my boss crazy!
