The parking lot was looking pleasingly occupied when I drove in to work last night. Not bulging full mind you, but a decent array of Sunday folks.  As it's my last shift prior to a short vacation I'm taking, I make a point of heading around to the schedule case to see if next week's…

    Saturday night, and I'm booked for the lounge. Better still, because we're still short-handed from Morgan's need to have a physical altercation with a co-worker, we're down another bartender. We have two in the house total.  Myself, and Jerry the Older.  Normally, this would mean we'd just shut d...

    Thursday night, once again. My determination to get my personal logistics on hand started to pay off as I clocked in about 10 minutes early for the first time in a while. That's good.  I'll need to make sure to stick to that. The new point system is... Well.  Let's just put it this way.…

    Just a summary for this one, guys - I worked. I went home. Nothing crazy occurred.   I did take a minute to confirm my time off in a couple of weeks with Rickie, and it's a good thing I did too, as with Charon being out of the house now, no one had recorded…

    And it's that time once again, time to go hang out in the Service bar with Jerry...  erm.... what's that Mr. Schedule on the Wall?  Not so much? Well bugger.  So it looks like Cherry swapped her Saturdays off around.  So instead of service bar for a few weeks, I'm now in the lounge for…

    So at this point, several Thursday nights in, I'm realizing a few key things about the service bar night in the middle of the week. It sucks just as much as mid-week service bar has always sucked. The supervisors currently on -hand aren't big believers in seniority. Even if I wanted to, therefore...

    Sunday night, my bread and butter.  At least until the schedule gets put into the Yahtzee cup and shaken around again. In all seriousness, though, I do love my Sunday nights. The liquor sales are largely down to me and whoever's cocktailing, I have the bar to myself, and I can often make just as&...

    Saturday - a massively loud party band in the lounge, and me in the service bar. This is a good thing. The parking lot looked... well not hectic, but busier than it has looked at least. There's also a few  busses in the back bringing tour traffic. So the night -could- be all right.  I'm…

    The word of the day, ladies and gentlemen, is ..... (Take a deep breathnow) FUCKMERUNNINGUPAHILLNAKEDINARAINSTORM!!!!!! ... ... ... Too sudden, hm?  Fine, fine.  Plot exposition, then. So I arrive for the Thursday night shift, bracing for the customary slow weeknight service bar type thing.  I se...

    I arrived at work about a minute late, but given yesterday's news regarding our new revised 'point' system for attendance, and knowing that the whole toteboard is going to get reset in 20 days anyway, I was feeling rather 'fuckit' on the subject and didn't let it sway me. What did give me pause f...
