Day 65: $10,171
I have a Con hangover again. Around 4:30, was fighting to keep my eyes open. We were slow all night; shift dragged. Was sent to lunch at 5, and when I returned, had a small 'rush', but nothing major. Did my AP4Me and LU to kill time, then swept and sanitized everything. Clocked out at 9:30 after bringing in the cull carts and retuning a bunch of stuff to Plumbing and Electrical.
Outfit: Rebel tee, cut off capris.
Day 66: $6,701
Arrived; hopped on #2 to help with the line. Discovered Kem had a trainee, and he was with me for an hour. I did the soda count, and prelim duties, then at 5:15, was sent to lunch. When I returned, I swept, then began the closing duties around 7. Friend Sheila arrived, needing someone to take a wooden panel to her house; I offered up D and the kids, who said they'd come out. A hung out with me for a while until D got everything loaded. Didn't have to return anything at the end of the shift, and clocked out at 9:20 with the rest of 'em.
Customer irritated me; I was putting things in the bags and she'd grab the bag before I was finished filling it. Okay lady; have a bag with only 3 light items in it....grrrr.....
Discovered Jim quit; he had another job and Hannah quit. Plus, our delivery driver quit and Marty's on vacation, so no deliveries until next week.
Outfit: Blue Vancouver Aquarium tee, cut off capris, gold textured earrings.
Day 67: $10,656
Shift was busy for 2 hours; had to have Karlee come down and help out for an hour. Customer bought 3 cull carts; Mgr T had to come down to give my o/r, since the HCs were busy. Had another o/r earlier, when some air filters were only $15. And a third one, when damaged pipe was knocked down 75%.
Ran out of dollar bills, and ran short of quarters before any were brought down.
Alexa relieved me for lunch at 6; when I returned, things slowed waaaaayyy down. Saw Abe W, but he didn't come over; he just waved and said hi.
Didn't have to take any returns back; brought in the three cull carts and locked the doors. Clocked out at 9:20 with the others.
Outfit: White Bon Jovi tee, cut off capris, thin gold hoops.
Day 68: $12,244
Today was one for the books. Arrived, and hopped on #2 to help K with the line. She left; it took me 2 hours to do the soda count, due to customers, including Mr and Mrs. Lewis and his brother. Tried to print off a loading ticket for Paul A, but it wouldn't print, so had CS do it. Was sent to lunch at 5:20; when I returned, did the rest of the closing duties as well as sweeping and sanitizing.
Was frustrated with my loaders tonight. J left early; R went to lunch and couldn't get ANYONE to cover his code 50s. R returned, and he still seemed to be ignoring my pages. Finally the girl from flooring arrived to help. Took the trash to the hopper after HC E cleaned me out, and returned an outlet cover to Electrical. Clocked out at 9:20.
Outfit: Red Tools tee, cut off capris, small silver hoops.
Day 69: $13, 729
Arrived and took over for HC M. HC E came down; I asked if we were going to do pop count, or should I save the paper? He said he'd bring down some Dew. So I got to be count-free! Found out Loader B called in, so J was in a bad mood. He and W took the trash out; I quickly gathered what I could and tossed it in the hopper.
Had a CFH around 5:30; they arrived with cabinets and flooring....and a countertop. None of the barcodes worked. Woman tried to tell me which one to zap....it didn't work. I grabbed the cheat sheet as the hubby says, "Look lady...I don't have all day while you figure this out!"
At that point, I put down the sheet and rang up everything else...then returned to the counter top, found it on the cheat sheet, and they paid and were on their way. The next customer in line asked if I was all right; that the previous ones were just downright RUDE! I agreed, and we actually laughed about it.
I also got the token lecture to push for credit apps. I started asking, then saying, 'Do you want your cashier to shut up about it?" and generally got a giggle from the customer. But it did pay off; I got one 'maybe' and a 'yes' about 8:40!
Saw Will P, and after the spiel, said, "Do you want your cashier to shut up and hug you?"
I did have time to sweep and sanitize the counters and registers. Had to return stuff to aisles 22, 17, 15, and 14, plus tools and back by the break room. Clocked out at 9:20, and stopped by Marci's to deliver her bath bomb.
Also discovered an issue with my schedule: I'm scheduled for Aug 8th, the day I'm RETURNING from MOA! Asked Marci if she'd work for me that day. For whatever reason, I didn't request it off. WTH???
Also discovered Kennedee was fired (she turned in her 2 week notice, then called in. S canned her) and George quit, because he couldn't get weekends off. Since he's scheduled to work with me this weekend, we'll see if that's true.....
Outfit: Yellow Fla tee, cut off capris, small gold hoops.
Day 70: $19,307 (Rare Sat)
Arrived and was surprised to find Marilyn at #1! She gratefully surrendered it and went back up front. Shift was BUSY! I kept track of how many customers declined the credit app vs who used their LU cards. Actually got 4 credit apps, though one might not have actually done it.
Took my break at 2:30, and went to Subway at 4:30. At 6, was having difficulty finding anyone to load a couple's flooring; Bryce and Brandon were down at the other end, pulling down deck boards for another customer.
Had a lady show me the bar code, and for fun, I took a piece of paper and after asking her name, wrote, 'Erica was right!" Her hubby laughed!
Saw Peppers and BG:)
Took my 2nd break at 8:30. Filled out the pop count and needed snacks, but none was pulled. Accidentally left my phone at Subway; a customer went over to get it for me.
Clocked out at 9:30 after returning items to Millwork, electrical, Paint, and Hardware.
Outfit: Las Vegas tee, cut off capris, zirconian studs
Day 71: $13,780 (rare Sun)
Arrived; HC E was with me for the first 2 hours, then he went to lunch. Was fairly steady, and did get one more credit app. Jillian came down at 3 with a return, and I asked her to watch while I took a pit stop. HC E came down at 3:30 and sent me to lunch; went to McAllisters and when I returned, Marilyn was relieved to see me. At 6, Loader J traded me a $10 for a roll of quarters. Hopped over to #2, then was told to stay on it the rest of the night. Had one customer pay me $5600 in cash.
Had several o/r, all for discounted carpet and one for flooring.
Was able to sweep and sanitize, since I averaged 9 customers an hour. Brought in the cull carts and took the trash out to B, then locked the doors and returned an air filter, a door knob, and four hinges. Clocked out around 8:20.
Outfit: Blue lacy shirt, original capris, gold textured hoops.
