The Best Day of The Week
This photo is the mountain of snow at my work!
The one and only day off. I don't know if you guys saw the tv. ads but tomorrow we are giving free food away. From 6am-2pm. you can go to Denny's and get your free grand slam. I heard last time we did it the line was around the building. It is at every Denny's. My boss was most inventive during the storm. He sent one of our regular customers out to pick me, two other waitress's, a cook and a dishwasher up. We opened and yes, there were people with cabin fever out and about yesterday. Mr. Jean drives a mail truck to deliver bulk bags from post office to post office around our city. Yesterday, if it were not for him, our store would have closed and I would be $80 lighter in my pocket. So God Bless him. I thank my dad for my work ethic. I was raised that the only excuses for missing work is death and it better be your own. I don't see much of that ethic these days. We have a manager who is phenomenal. His name is Reggie. He got snowed in at the restaurant because the owner told him not to close on Friday. He was there from 6pm Friday til 3pm Saturday after he, and the three employees dug his car out and escaped the store. I was amazed. When I explain these stories to Baggy Pants he just shrugs. He doesn't get it. I felt like saying, "Hey dumbass, I am going out in this blizzard to feed your behind"..He just knows his mother goes to work and there is food and a roof. Are all kids so oblivious? I think alot are. I am going to use this day to run some early am errands, and than take my pajama day. If you want your free meal, arrive early on Tuesday at a Denny's. Be nice to your frazzled waitress. Remember, the food is free, but we only make $3.25 an hour. For those of you in warmer climates...I hate you right now...
