A Day In The Life (#23)

This morning I had my alarm set for 8:00, 8:30 and 8:45 a.m., as I do every morning. I let the one at 8:00 go off, shut it off, and sleep until my 8:30 one. When that one goes off, I start to wake up, check my phone, and go through my social media until my 8:45 one goes off. After I motivate myself out of bed, I grab my clothes and towel, and head to the shower.

There’s nothing quite like a hot shower in the morning to get myself motivated to start the day. I wash my hair every other day, and today I didn’t have to. I decided not to worry about shaving, either, as I did that the other day, too. 

Once I got out of the shower and dressed, I went downstairs to let the big puppy outside and to get myself some coffee started. This past week I bought myself some yogurt and granola bars to motivate myself to eat breakfast – which I really need to do. It’s one of my efforts to get myself to slowly eat a little healthy, even if it’s not the best thing I could be doing. I’ve told myself that once my period is over this week that I need to cut back on junk food as well. She’s not happy about that (there I go with third person again).

This morning I brewed myself a French Vanilla Cappuccino in my Keurig. The same day I bought the yogurt and stuff, I found some store brand K-Cups that were $4.99 for 18 cups (the French Vanilla), and $3.99 for 18 cups (Pumpkin Spice). I’ve never seen them so cheap, even the ones at Wal-Mart weren’t as cheap I don’t think. So I splurged and made sure to stock myself up. They’re actually pretty good.

After making my coffee and grabbing my breakfast, I moved back upstairs to actually start writing this post. I have work at 10:30 a.m., so the rest of this post will be written after work, which ends around 6:00 p.m. for me today. The other day, my one friend from Pittsburgh mentioned he was going to be in town and I think I may be getting food after work with him and his former roommate. 

As for the rest of this morning, I’m listening to some music, and about to work on some other posts before I have to leave. I got a head start on posts for this weekend, I’m so excited to get this week done and over with. But for now, I’m going to break this post and come back to it later tonight.

Work was long, but I’m counting down the days until Friday afternoon. I started off this morning feeling like it may turn into a good day, and after I got to work, the phone kept going off with the same caller asking me questions about our menu. The funny part is, this person comes in all the time. She called three times before even ordering. So every time I went to finish doing something, the phone went off. It was very annoying. 

Not to mention I’m on my period so stupid things aggravate me even more than normal. Some days I’m all cool with people and don’t mind it, today was not one of those days. It just felt really off this afternoon. While I was getting things ready before we opened, I noticed we didn’t have any extra large boxes downstairs for pizza. There was a huge stack of larges, but no XL’s. Or so I thought. My one manager went to go get us temporary boxes only for Alex to bring up a stack of XL boxes that was apparently in the middle of the large stack.

Throughout lunch, I kept saying the wrong things (oh that’s supposed to be take-out, oh wait, I’m wrong, you were right). I did this enough I told people to stop listening to me. Lunch got a little busy, but died after. I did my daily tasks, filling sauces, dressings, etc. And then I had the fun task of rearranging all of our Four Loko and Twisted Tea 24oz cans cases. Because this weekend was busy, my other cashiers had them all out of whack (I always keep everything organized). Then when the distributors dropped the rest off this morning, it made it even worse. It took me about 20-30 minutes to get everything organized. But hey, it looks so much better, for now.

Oh, we also got Christmas beers in already. Fucking Christmas beers and it’s not even the end of October. They sent us Fall beers in the middle of August, so I’m not surprised, but it’s just so backwards! We sold out of majority of our Octoberfest beers before October even hit. I think we have one left. Most of our fall beers are also gone. It’s crazy. I don’t even want to think about Christmas until this month is over – at the very least. Let’s me enjoy what’s left of the fall weather. November is all about preparing for the holidays anyways.

My coworkers know how I feel about this so they’ve started singing Christmas carols lately. Drives me crazy! 

The rest of the day wasn’t too bad, just folded boxes and stocked some beer and did my job. I could be here awhile if I talked about everything I truly did do today, and honestly, it’s really not all that exciting. There was one guy who came in, on the phone and also with a friend, and ordered some food to go. I even read back his order to him to make sure I had everything, because like I said, this guy was on the phone and I fucking hate that. After he gets his food, leaves, and gets home, he calls the store. I answer the phone, and he goes, “I was just in there and I didn’t get any gravy for my beer battered fries, and that’s the only reason I wanted to get them.”

Ummmm… you never fucking ordered any gravy. I was nice to the guy on the phone, but I simply explained that I remembered him, I took his order, and that I had even read him back his order because I wanted to make sure I got it right. That it did not say gravy on the ticket either. And I left it at that. The customer is not always right. He was too busy trying to talk on the phone and order. Maybe next time you should ask your friend or whoever on the phone what they want, and then come up to the register to order. I dunno, it’s not only a little more respectful, but you might get your order right. 

Like I said, people annoy the fuck out of me sometimes, especially on my period. I don’t have patience for it. 

I mentioned above that I was possibly going out to eat with my friend from Pittsburgh, but his plans got changed so instead, I got food before I left work today. I ordered some pepperoni rolls (which I always get), and they dilly dallied making my food so I was giving my one coworker these stare downs and trying to make him hurry up with my food because it was already 10 after 6. Alex kept asking me why I was still there. When my food was ready, he kept telling the guys that I wanted ghost pepper cheese with it instead of marinara, and I was kind of like, no, stop, that’s not what I said. They do these kinds of things to me all the time. But they legit gave me a side of ghost pepper cheese along with my marinara. I tried it when I got home, it was actually an interesting combination and it may be sad that I actually liked it.

It’s been rainy and gloomy all day, but I lucked out when I left work because it had stopped raining. It was just windy, and honestly the sky was dark but the clouds looked so pretty, so I’m glad I walked home instead of calling home for a ride. It wasn’t that cold either.

After I got home, I got changed, went through my mail (finally got this skirt I ordered about a month ago for Ray’s Twin Peaks party he’s having. I wasn’t sure if it would come so I ordered something else I actually wound up liking better. I don’t know what I’m going to do with this skirt now. Oh well. I also got my official State ID, can set aside my temporary one.) My mom has sent me about 4 texts since I’ve been home. If I’m upstairs and she’s downstairs, all she does is send me annoying little reminder texts about letting the dog out or bringing him in. When really, I had full intentions anyways. It just annoys me. Something about being in the same house with someone and having them text you versus talking to you is just annoying. I get why she does it, but it will forever annoy me.

And now, to end out the rest of my night, I am finishing up writing this post and listening to some music. I will either continue writing out another post to get started (trying to prepare for being gone this weekend), or I’ll throw Smallville back on and keep watching that. I was feeling nostalgic for the longest time to watch this show, and after getting Hulu I discovered it was actually on there. It makes me so happy, I watched this show all the time as a kid. It’s cheesy, but I still kind of like it.

Anyways, this post may be a little long-winded, but here’s a look into a day in my life. Or at least partially a look. I could be here forever, like I said, if I went into full details.

  1. Your morning sounds so relaxing. If I had to wake up and work that early I’d be able to do nothing but brush my teeth lol. Ugh, that guy about the gravy sounds annoying and I’m glad you told him you were right, ha! 😛 I see why you’d be annoyed of texts from your mom while she’s downstairs lol my boyfriend and I would only text each other while we’re in the same house as a joke. 😛 I remember Smallville, I never watched it that often but I remember when it was on TV lol.

    1. Haha it sort of is, I have to give myself some time in the morning before I waste the day at work lol. If I wake up and only give myself enough time to get ready, I feel so rushed and hate that. And oh he was haha, I was kind of thinking to myself, “what do you want me to do about it?” Cuz he said he was home and it didn’t really matter I guess. He didn’t pay for gravy lol.
      Haha that’s one thing! My mom just does it to remind me about the dog or to ask me to come downstairs. So annoying! And gotcha haha. I used to watch it all the time as a kid because I grew up with like 5 channels and I was able to pull the WB in my bedroom. Loved it haha.

      1. I hate to feel rushed but I do it to myself all the time lol. Ugh…he wanted you to prob send him a free coupon in the mail or something. Ahh I remember when the channel was called WB instead of CW lol.

      2. Haha I know a lot of people that do it to themselves a lot. I just can’t. I was stressing about being late this morning because i took too long getting photos for a post and I wanted to post it before I left for work 😂 I actually clocked in exactly when I had to be at work. And ehh maybe! We don’t do that sort of thing though lol. If an order gets messed up we’ll give you a refund or something. But if you don’t have a receipt you don’t have proof of anything. People try to con free shit all the time. And yes!!! I actually miss it being the WB versus CW. It’s just not the same haha

      3. There was this guy who used to always call at Sonic (when I worked there) and he’d complain about his whole order. They’d always send him a complimentary combo meal coupon in the mail until they realized it, he always got ’em sent to the same address so they wrote his address in the office area telling everyone not to send him any more lol.

      4. We used to have people like that at Sheetz! After awhile we stopped giving out coupons because people like to get free stuff. That also happened at the place I work now, where we gave this guy a refund on his pizza multiple times until we banned him. Because we’d give him a gift card and he’d wind up buying beer with it. And it was more than one occasion lol. Way to cheat us

    1. Haha try working at a place where you see fresh pizzas every day. It’s torture! Haha. And exactly! People drive me crazier when I’m on it, I have a high tolerance, but it decreases a little more every day that I work lol.
