    but much of today at work felt like a clusterfuck.

    My favorite coworker called in sick.  So I've got this n00b (second day on the job) plus an employee from a nearby store who has already worked a ten-hour shift and is ready to drop.

    It wasn't as busy as Friday, thank FSM, but busy came in waves.

    And the n00b kept wandering away.  Or the woman from our sister store.  Or I would start to do something and have to run over and show n00by how to run the lottery machine, or get change or -- whatever.

    Finally n00by left, and exhausted worker and I were there until another worker from sister store showed up to close with me.  By this time we're kind of behind on a bunch of tasks.

    We DID manage to play catch-up, mostly b/c it wasn't as busy as Friday, but oh, my stress level was through the roof for all ten hours.

    I wish I had some of Dumbo's whiskey.
