Not a Moment too Soon

On the way to work earlier, I was expecting it to be a standard night. Perhaps I'd get put on line instead of stuck down in drive through again, but that was the only concern I had. Upon getting there that changed though. First of all, in the single day I had off, the End World Hunger donation drive is back (although it's masquerading as "Fill the Cup" this time...), with one new addition, being these large, unsightly buttons we have to wear in addition to our name tags. Mary was working when I went in, so as you may expect, I was quickly informed that if I didn't have both, my uniform would be seen as incomplete and I'd be sent home, even though George had told me the same thing in the back not five minutes before that. It's only lasting until the end of October though, so that's not too bad. The other special thing about tonight was Melissa or Sheila or somebody else had informed anybody who would listen that the store owner is supposed to be coming down tomorrow, presumably to see how Melissa is doing as the GM, so tonight's main focus (aside from orders) was extra cleaning. I did all of main line and mini, which amounted to more cleaning done in one night than I ever have before. Best part about it is I have five days off now, but we also didn't leave until about 3:00, so two hours after we'd closed.

I need to leave myself a note or something for tomorrow though, because I let Manoah borrow some money to pay his mom for whatever she needs it for, because we hadn't been paid yet, and he didn't have any money in his account otherwise. He swore he'll pay me back tomorrow, but I'll probably end up walking out there then maybe stop by 7-11 on the way home, because I didn't tonight, and continuing with things I forgot, yesterday (Tuesday) walking up to Heart and Stroke's back door. Finally, somebody doesn't see my tail and ears and automatically assume "cat". Some guy sitting up on the second floor balcony of his house shouted out "Hey! Leopard man! What's that all about?", and went on to say that I was walking so nonchalant, as if I didn't even notice they were there. Am I supposed to? For the most part, my tail stays out of the way, thus it's only natural for me to walk around normally. Still satisfying though, because being meowed at every time I went out for a walk was slowly getting annoying.

As for those dreams mentioned earlier...

Anyways, I was planning to write more, but I just wrote most of the previous two paragraphs there with my eyes closed, so it's about time I was getting some sleep. Tomorrow, Shoppers then grocery shopping to start out, but it should end up being a full day altogether~
