Returned to work today, to see how well I work with one arm, T had me up front. Things went well; normally customers were friendly and understanding about my one-arm restriction, and happily lifted paint, or items in general onto the counter. Only had one customer ignore my plea to lift it, so Matt did it while informing the customer I'd broken my arm and wasn't allowed to lift it. Another customer lifted the bag of whatever it was, but slammed everything else down. I don't know if she was irritated or just normal behavior. I ignored it.
Only had two 'oopsies'.....1) I thought customer said she wanted to pay $45 in cash; turned out she'd said $35. Had to wait for HC M to rescue me. 2) Tried to look up my schedule before clocking back in after lunch and didn't realize the cap lock was on. Had to call IT to get me unlocked.
ASM Scott had fallen on the ice and busted his knee. Saw him and said, "Imitation is the highest form of flattery...but you didn't do it right!" He laughed.

Day 349: Back in Lumber!!!
Arrived; everyone was happy to see me back, even a few customers:) Was steady; managed to get pop count accomplished by 5:30, when Alexa came to send me to lunch. When I arrived back, she said she'd sanitized everything and pulled the trash. I'm glad I double-checked; she'd missed 3 trash cans! At 7:30, I was able to do my LU, AP4Me, read my email, change my log-in PW, and complete the two training courses. HC C had me hop over to #2, since the $$ was getting close to going over. At 8:50, customer came in and asked what time we close.
"Is there someone in plumbing who can help me?"
At closing, the customer is still shopping. C and Mgr T left me open and he finally showed up. Rang him up, then took C's vest back to her locker. Clocked out around 9:25.
My name is on the anniversary list for Feb! As of tomorrow, I've been here 2 years:) Minus 4 months and 3 weeks, lol!

Day 350: My 2nd year anniversary with the company:)
Arrived; Marci was happy to see me! Shift was slow. Had pop count done by 5; all early work finished by 5:30. M sent me to lunch at 6, and when I returned, began the closing duties. Was slightly steady until 7, then thoroughly swept and sanitized the entire area.
Loader J told an off-color religious joke within earshot of one of our more conservative cashiers, who promptly complained. I whacked him with my broom when he told it to me. Later when questioned, I said it was slightly offensive, but the smack-on-the-wrist kind, not fireable. J later said he was waiting for a manager to talk to him about it. Don't know if it ever happened....and he finished out the night.
Outfit: Mama Bear sweatshirt, black leggings, starry night mask
Day 351: Rare Sunday!
Alexa had asked me if I'd take her shift today, so she could study for some school tests tomorrow. I went in at 11:30 and was thrilled to find out I'd be working with Cindy and her trainee Carson:) They went to break, which was fine; things were slow and steady nearly all day. Cindy went to lunch at 1, so I coached Carson on the register, and she did well:) When C returned, we were slightly busy, so I didn't go to break until 2:30. When I came back, got the call at 3 to go to lunch, so walked over to McAllister's:) When I returned at 4, things were fine, but after clocking in, it was hectic! Carson's shift was over, and Cindy went to break. I did the pop count and started the closing duties. Makenzie came down at 5, and when she left at 7, I pulled trash and began sanitizing. My final customer arrived at 7:45 and needed 16 deck boards, a few 2x4s, and a few 4x4s, plus some screws. Rang her up just as we were closing. Locked the doors after K and Matt got everything loaded, then took the trash down.
