I'm certifiable !!!
It has been an interesting week at work so far, and today is only Monday ! On Sunday, one of the parts/warehouse guys, fell off of a ladder. He was about 7 feet up, and landed on his side, and smacked his face against the concrete floor. So he is now out for a few days. A cashier/service desk person, has called in sick the 3 days, and did no call/no shows twice, he hasn't been to work in a week.
My bosses now think, I'm the greatest thing since sliced bread, because I can work any day, and anytime. Today was supposed to be a day off, but because that one guy, fell from the ladder, they asked me if I would come in, and help them do warehouse. I agreed, I figured, what the hell, I can use the extra money anyway. At 2 o'clock, when the other warehouse people were leaving, they game me a till, and made me work the register, until 6 pm. The other guy, didn't show up to work again today.
The reason I had to run a register, is because the cashier that was there, got all bent up out of shape, because she would have to work, an extra hour. So, my boss, finally got tired of hearing her, and sent her home early. At 4 o'clock, another cashier showed up, and she was going to work, from 4pm to close. Ramadan is currently going on, so at 5:20, the cashier who just started, had to take a break, to go eat. She comes back from break, and then the manager on duty, pulls my till, and I get to go home.
I get home, and look at the schedule for tomorrow, there are no cashiers scheduled, until 11am, oops, the store opens up at 8 am. I call my boss, to let him know, and he tells me, that I should just come in tomorrow, and work from 8 am until 1 pm. Tomorrow was also supposed to be a day off. D'oh, that's what I get, for opening my mouth. By the end of this week, I'll have 60 hours, unless they give me a different day off sometime between now and Sunday.
I did that little job knowledge test thingie, I'm now a certified service desk person. Yippie !! Go Me ! Now I can start my training at the parts counter. "Would you like some oil with that ? Thank you, please drive thru. "
