Well Lets see.... It started several Weeks ago... :
David's parents had just left and the week had just started.
Monday: After entertaining the parents and running around with everything else I am exhausted but have to be to work at 5:30am to help meet the truck. I wake up late, have to run out the door (No shower for me), and get yelled out and crucified all day by the staff. Jeff doesn't leave till way late.
Tuesday: Head chef is supposed to be out for Doctor's Appointment. - which is ok. I start work at 6:00am tired but ok (I always have coffee), Cold prep chef doesn't call or show up, and the temp calls and says she is having a heart attack. Thats Awesome! Jeff has to do the work of three people while co-chef is also running around to get the food out. Jeff works long,hard day because he is not sure who will show up tomorrow.
Wednesday: 6:00am Cold prep chef comes in, but is in super foul mood because she almost left her husband the night before.(Too much drama) Really busy day and we barely get everything done in time.
Thursday: 6:00am Sales director come in way late (what is up with this week an being late) Jeff has to leave kitchen and answer the phones most of the morning because no one else will. Food barely gets out the door and kitchen staff gives me attitude for having to answer the phones and not helping with the food (Hello. I can't be in kitchen and taking orders upstairs at the same time. Thats how accident happen)
Friday: The hurricane is causing Fuel and everything to go up. Everyone is freaking out because gas is over $3.00 a gallon. And I get a call from our disposable company telling me about price increases due to the rise in gas prices. (they had been slowly going up but not a jump like this)
Saturday: Went to the lake ,but wasn't really feeling it. Floated around and had ok time. Didn't sleep much the night before.
Sunday: A Blurr! I don't even know what happen this day. Sleep Maybe?
Monday: 6:00am Breakfast has to go out first thing in the morning, and I am the man for the job. I am gone most of the morning and have to take a really crappy run for lunch. Get crucified for being out on breakfast run (have no control over)
Tuesday: 6:00am work hard in the kitchen and in the afternoon get yelled out for not having finished the new Holiday menu (WTF, when the hell did I have time for that). What ever!
Wednesday: 6:00am I get there before six and pick up doughnut munchkins at dunkin doughnuts. YEA! Operations manager come in early, because she slept over at cold prep chef's house because her husband is an asshole. So she is a rip-roaring bitch and bites off my head all day. She yells at me b/c I have to do all the cleans ups that day. Ok, Not sure what the big deal is. There was only one. WOW! That set her off. Won't repeat what was said. Just bad. (Jeff shouldn't have had to endure that)
Thursday: Joe's wedding is on my mind and I am trying to get off work early to go get some last minute stuff. Doesn't happen. people get called out of the office and I have to stay and answer phones all afternoon.
Friday: Everyone one in pretty foul mood. Glad week is over. Go home and get stuff sorted out for the wedding tomorrow and call to make sure time is 6:00pm tomorrow. (never got invitation, yet I am the best man)Supposed to have bachelor's party for Joe. He says he has to wait for his friend to get there before he can come up. Joe's calls and cancels because Trish (future bride) took too long getting her nails and hair done. No Bachelor's party! Great what a waste of time planning that.
Saturday: So tired!! Get up and have to run around getting last minute stuff ready. (Gift wrap & stuff to mess up joe's car Shaving cream, TP, ETC.) Get back and get late start up to helen. I wanted to get there early in case of traffic or something. I get there at 5:30pm Early yea! But I soon find out the wedding started at 5:00pm Oh Crap! So I am late and the pastor is yelling at my brother and I telling us that he needs to start the wedding now or their won't be one. My parents are not their yet, because they think it is at 6:00pm too. (They also did not get in invite) Trish's family is pissed and the pastors tells us that she is not going to put up with that crap when Joe is Married and that he knows whats going on and that my parents are not going to come because they don't want the marriage to happen. (BASTARD!! I had to do everything possible not to punch that MF out. David helped alot with that. Thank you Boo.) My parents get there and are made to feel like shit and the pastor rushes my handicapped Mom so much she loses her shoe, tears a hole in her hose, about rips her new little outfit, and almost makes her fall in the process. (I am telling you, what a man of god!) The rest of the wedding went ok. When the pastor found out MY parents were paying for the whole wedding and the mother of the bride wasn't paying a dime, he figured out what had really happened and that my parents had been told a different time on purpose. They had been the ones wanting them to have a wonderful marriage, not have to deal with someone being late.
Sunday: Glad yesterday is over, and go down to celebrate Julius' 3rd Birthday (my nephew) Makes me feel better but I am so wiped I can hardly enjoy it.
Well Thats my Past couple of weeks. What a bitch! I don't think I slept a bit since the beginning of all that. Glad it is over and moving on the happiness. YEA! I Like Happiness!
Finally get this off my chest
