Doing the "Right" Thing Often Sucks

Almost had myself convinced to send Michele an email to say I wouldn't be in today last night, but decided against it, because I'll be missing going there on the 25th anyways for having just come back from London, and also the work they would be having me do is by no means difficult or annoying. Just checking the master spreadsheet for consistency, and if that's done before 5, quite possibly saying goodbye early in order to come home. Seeing as I have the night off, I would like to get out to Little Caesars, and if it's still raining out like it is now later, it's just going to be easier to call for a ride from Heart and Stroke, then go right out there. With the way things have been going lately, there's a slight chance of being called and asked if I want to work too, but screw that.

From 10:00 on yesterday night, Manoah and I were the only ones working, with pretty much a normal shift's amount of things to be done. Dishes to be washed, line to be cleaned up and readied for close, frying and prep to be done, floors to be deckscrubbed, dining room to be cleaned, and so on. Best part about it is that Earl was apparently the opening manager today, and asked Manoah before leaving last night to make sure it was a good close. Yeah, sure, Earl. Whatever you say. As soon as you and Sheila start giving us the proper amount of staff for closing, they'll get better, but right now, you're lucky to come in to what you do half the time.

Then when I came home Windows Update wanted to run on this laptop, and several optional updates came up for the hardware I don't have official drivers for. Thinking it couldn't hurt to allow it to install those, I checked them all, restarted, and was somewhat chagrined to see that the touchpad didn't fully work anymore. For touching and tapping, yes, but not for dragging your finger along the edge to scroll up or down. Also, I've found that pressing both the left and right buttons at the same time performs the same action as clicking the wheel on a USB mouse, or third button on one that actually has it, so that's rather handy.

As for ways taken to work and home, I took this route there, and this way home. If it keeps warming up at the rate it is right now, I'm going to be walking home without a shirt well before the summer hits, but meh.

Anyways, if I'm to be getting a ride to Heart and Stroke, we need to leave right now. Yay~
