What's that smell?
Posted by tim in Work Sucks on July 25, 2005

Oh wait, it's just my flesh burning.

"Dude" and "Other Dude" are both out this week. "Dude" has taken the week as vacation. "Other Dude" has been suspended (possibly for good) for various reasons.

So today, it was me and "Guy", the new guy. Guy knows his stuff and is a very hard worker, so the day went rather well in that sense. The problem was the customers...

Around 11:30, I went to get my lunch (a salad) from the pizza joint just across the way from the shop. When I got back, before I poured the dressing on the salad, I told Guy that as soon as I did a car would pull up. I was right.

From then on, there was car after car after car, and at one point we had 3 waiting outside with 2 inside. I think the rush stopped around 5:00.

Overall, I believe we had 29 or 30 cars, brought in over $950 in sales, and even got the shop cleaned up and half the weekly "to do" list done.

The word around the boss is that there are going to be 3 positions opening up in the company. No, not new positions... EXISTING positions.

If anyone near me is reading this and is looking for work, you know where I work, so come in and talk to the boss.

So do you think you'll get promoted? (Do you want to?)

Nah, Tim allready has too much spare time on his hands, he wouldn't like to get promoted to get even more spare time then he allready has!

Well, considering what the boss said today, I probably will get promoted.

She said something along the lines of "We're pushing everyone up the ladder in a hurry."

Do I WANT to get promoted? I dunno. We'll see.

It could mean better pay at least.
