Everybody is an Exception to the Rule

"The Rule" referenced above is that you have to be in some sort of motor vehicle to come through drive through. I was put on it last night, and I had that issue come up twice. First time was with a bunch of girls who said we were discriminating against them, then asked if they could be served if one of them came back on a motor scooter. That's a bit hard to say, and I told them I wasn't sure because I've never run into something like that before, but better put, if your vehicle is heavy enough to make the headset ding so we know you're there, your order will most likely be taken without issue.

Then the other time was later on at night, probably ten minutes before we closed. This guy who had to be in his teens started knocking on the window as I was filling up the hot and mild sauce containers, so I opened it and told him "Sorry. You have to be in a vehicle for me to serve you". He was drunk, of course, so a good five minutes of back-and-forth ensued about how he was in a vehicle, and that I could surely let it slide just once. Hell, several more girls tried to do the same on Thursday night, and while I wasn't on drive through then, I ended up having to explain to them that if we took their order without them being in a vehicle, we would have to do so for everybody that wanted to walk through. Getting back to the guy last night though, he eventually realized I wasn't going to change my mind and asked to talk to the manager, who was Manoah last night. Manoah told him pretty much the same things I had been, but somewhere along the line his train of thought jumped to "Maybe I should just serve this guy to get him out of here". I could go off on a completely separate tangent about how he and Steve, at least, both seem to have less resolve than the regular staff when it comes to telling customers "No", but I won't.

Then there was the problem of sleeping too. By the time I finally laid down and went to sleep, it had to be about 6 in the morning. At first, I had a comforter over me, and the fan on the second speed, just so I wouldn't get too warm. I did, however, for reasons that elude me, and ended up waking up around noon, still with my headache, so I stumbled into the bathroom, then back into my room and stayed awake for long enough to take a Tylenol, which reminds me I need to pick another bottle up from Shoppers sometime this week. Instead of just going back to sleep under the same circumstances as before though, I grabbed a smaller blanket, turned my fan off, and laid down in bed with it covering me. That worked for about an hour, but I still felt uncomfortably cold, and sort of sick too (but that was present for the entire time I'd been sleeping), so I ended up waking up again around 1, for long enough to grab my comforter off the floor, and go back to sleep with it covering me and that fan not blowing at all. I feel rested enough now, but that will probably change by the time I come home tonight.

For now though, I need to go microwave the last hamburger that's left downstairs for supper, then bide my time until 7. Looking forward to Tuesday through Friday this week, because I have all four days off, but my plans for a couple of them are mostly hinging on going to Greyhound tomorrow and buying the bus tickets I need to visit Dyno. We'll see what happens~
