At least the weather's cooler

Did I post yesterday? I don't remember. I had such a bad day at work Wednesday that I spent much of Thursday in a fog. The good thing is, I did get to see Matthew McConaughey without his shirt on in Sahara. The bad thing is, my work week is starting again and I don't feel like I've had a day off.

Wednesdays are usually stressful anyway, what with the twelve-hour shift and the irrationality of 50¢ day customers. This one was worse, because there were a lot of little irritants--sort of like a paper cut: it's not bad enough to bandage, but it hurts like hell.

Parts kept jumping off projectors, so that I had problems with all three of them at various times. A toilet paper dispenser fell off the wall in one of the men's rooms, and the storage cabinet locks had gotten so sticky with "butter" that we had to buy graphite when we bought the liquid nails to remount the TP holder. But worst of all, my hopes were dashed when the GM informed me that the owner had decided we weren't going to get the computer that we had been promised, and was supposed to be installed yesterday. Since both the GM and I thought I was getting the computer, we had let our ticket supply run out, so I'm starting the weekend off on the thin edge of ticketlessness.

I think if we run out, I'll just let the people come in without paying. That'll teach the owner not to disappoint me!

Give them squares of toilet paper, the amount based on how bad 1. they behave or 2. the movie sucks.
Even if they don't get it, you can smile inside with that knowledge.

Give me the liquid nails & I'll "explain" to the owner that the computer is an important purchase.
