Day two was also pretty busy, and it had it's fair share of hiccups. The internet cutting out made processing credit cards impossible for a few hours during the day. And now we have TWO machines not functioning properly. Ugh! This really needs to get easier at some point soon!

Just wait until some REAL stupidity occurs and gets in the way. Like one of your fellow employees forgetting to close the freezer door the night before so your entire inventory thaws overnight and your left without food the next day. 

Or an angry, mentally ill customer storming back into the kitchen to yell at you over some smushed onion rings that were completely intact when you handed them to her.

Or (and this is my personal favorite), a customer unironically and unknowingly recites a quote word to word from the "Hated Customers" scene from the movie Clerks.

Fire burned up the mountainside behind my house and came within 100 feet of my porch. Some of my neighbors it came to the grass line. Multiple agencies responded. Our neighborhood was evacuated. The fire is out now they have large trucks spraying everything and rows of firefighters with shovels putting out hotspots to prevent it from flaring up again. Lightning struck a power pole and exploded a transformer causing two live wires to fall and ignite the grass on the mountainside. An estimated 30 acres burned.

Thank you sir. I'm looking forward to a day in the near future when I'm NOT working 10 or 12 hour days.

Sounds like you've been down these roads.

Holy cow, close call.

A critter caused a power outage on my street so my mom and I slept at a hotel last night.

I had a nice day today. It was my grandfather's 70th Birthday, so we all went over to his house to celebrate. Got to see my uncle and catch up with him. It was a fun time.

Man, today is great. First day of the Fair, and it's like a mini vacation to nostalgia land, far from the weight of the yogurt shop craziness! Here... I can breathe

My fair was in town last week. I decided not to go however, as I am horribly depressed enough about living here without going out and looking at the locals. According to one of my friends who did go, he counted about 13 teeth among 10 people, which I largely anticipate is an overestimation on his part.

On a note about my day, my aunt discovered a poppy looking fungus growing out of the grout by our tub. Given the history of mold that has been in that bathroom, I largely anticipate this is the least of our problems. As such, I am saying my goodbye's now as I anticipate dying from a mold-related respiratory illness sometime within in the next year.

Today, while I was at work, I got hit in the head by a piece of wood, and started bleeding. I had to head over to the emergency room to get it checked out. Thankfully, it was nothing serious. Just a scraped in the back, and did heal on it's own. Still, it feels a bit scary when you see you're bleeding at the back of your skull.

Glad you were okay blue. Scary situation, that.
