Overtime

At work today, I got called over to the other building to give someone access to one of our IT system. They didn't tell me what they wanted until I got there. I could have done it from my office and not got rained on. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, we were setting up the kids party room when we realized we didn't have birthday party hats. My manager's solution? Not buying new hats- he thought a better idea would be to make them ourselves with construction paper. It took 2 and a half hours. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, we started reading from a set script during phone calls instead of improvising. I didn't think my job could become more boring. But it turns out that writing my own "lines" of telemarketing spiel was its only pleasure. Sigh. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was told a quarterly report was overdue. It should be due in 2 days, 15 business days after the end of the quarter. "Well," my boss said, "some people don't know what 'business days' are. So to them, it's overdue now." I guess those are the people I work for. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, corporate instituted a fun new policy for all the restaurants in our chain. Every half hour, we do a country western dance. In the middle of the restaurant. And we have to learn the right steps. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I thought I might start reorganizing the company photo albums. Turns out we have more photos than I thought. Who knows why somebody took 208 photos at the 1997 company picnic. But they did- and now I'm filing it. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was canvassing for a local political gruop. I don't actually agree with them, but they hired me. That didn't stop me from getting shouted off of two doorways. Before they slammed the door, I asked each person if they would just hire me instead. They didn't. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I thought I might break away from the group and work on some windows myself. Habitat for Humanity can get cliquey. Five minutes after I started, I overheard somebody else saying I'd gone "AWOL." I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, my cash register kept jamming. So I had to swing my hip into it to get it shut. Bam! It was satisfying the first time. 98 transactions later, it wasn't so fun. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I had the fun honor of being in the company dunk tank. I work with a whole mess of accountants. That means that I was sitting dry for almost the entire day. I've never been sadder than sitting up there waiting. Dorks. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, the top three beverage requests were Pinot Grigio with a side of ice, Jack & Coke, and iced tea. I work in a wine bar that only serves wine and water. We don't possess an ice machine. It's awesome explaining that several hundred times in an 8 hour shift! I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, we replaced "Evil Dave" with a new guy named Jason. He's not evil. But he's too nice. He asked so many questions I couldn't do my work. I work behind a bakery counter- I didn't even know there were that many questions to ask. I'm dumbemployed.
