I Have No Patience

This is starting to become more than annoying. I ended up walking straight home from work tonight, because I had a headache from listening to loud music after we'd closed, and didn't feel like fussing about with all the fish flies that are out there now. Seriously, when I first got there, none were to be found, but as soon as it got dark out they swarmed up and all over the windows, garbage and cardboard dumpsters, menu board, and pretty much any other lighted surface out in the parking lot. A couple even got inside too, but the most I had to do about them was jump up at the light to get one that was just out of reach. They're still annoying though, because I don't want to get swarmed by the things when I sit down outside before my shift starts, and most certainly cannot stay in the dining room, as Manoah even made a comment tonight about how it was cooler in the back than it was out there. Oh, but the air conditioning is broken again, for the fourth year in a row, as I said in a previous entry, and the people responsible for the maintenance of the building seem to be taking their time trying to find the cheapest way to fix it. I'm also annoyed with myself for my behavior tonight. I'm not Steve, so getting all angry and impatient because the customers won't stop coming in isn't me, but that's exactly what I was doing. I know it's almost summer so we can expect it to be busy, but tonight just wasn't the best from the start.

What's more, as if that wasn't plenty, I immediately went upstairs upon getting home, and was in there for about five minutes when I heard somebody walking up the stairs. It was Adam, just returning to his room, so I thought nothing of it, and went down to the kitchen to find something to eat. What I found instead was a big pile of dishes, all of which he should've washed. I know he has other things on his mind right now, what with his girlfriend / fiance visiting and all that, but I want one of these passes that excuses me from all responsibility. Dishes take literally an hour and a half at most, so pry yourself away from the computer for a bit, actually wash, dry, and put them away, then you can go back to whatever you were doing before knowing you'd fulfilled your obligation for that night. I mean it. So I ended up going back upstairs to get my laptop, then went back to the kitchen again and did all of those. Not the worst thing ever, I know, but it seems he's graduated from only soaking the things before putting them back in the cupboard to not doing them entirely, and as far as I can tell I'm the only one who notices or cares enough to say something about it.

Still, I don't want this entry to be entirely about bad things. In truth I enjoyed washing the dishes after a point, because now Dad won't see the same big pile when he goes down there, and it was nice doing something other than what I'd been planning for most of the night - coming home and watching the last few episodes of DS9, which I'd rather get to tomorrow after I go out to Walmart and have everything I need to make cake. I've two days off now, and the next shift I work close with Orlando which will definitely be more fun than with George alone, so yeah. The only downside is that I have a mere five packages of peanut butter cups left, and two of them will be saved for the cake, but I'll do my best to spread them out over the next week. Not sure what sort of treats I'll have to share next, but maybe it's time somebody else took a turn. James used to always buy little boxes of Timbits when he closed, but for some reason doesn't do that anymore. Although now that I think of it, I'm relatively well off for money these days, so maybe I'll plan ahead and get a small something from Dairy Queen for all of the closers on a random night <3 Little surprises like that are fun, but I'd like to be surprised too for once.

I have a rather large blanket to fold up again before going to bed though (I tried sleeping with it last night, but only got one or two really restful hours), and a few other odds and ends I've been putting off since I got up here. No sense leaving them for any longer~
