I didn't take a break tonight :o I really don't understand her at times. Tonight, I was at the back doing dishes, and she came back, and said something about "I appreciate you're a hard worker and all, but when you work a 7 hour shift, you have to take a break. I don't care if you're just twiddling your thumbs or whatever. I could get in trouble from the labor board because of it." Okay. First of all, here's what happened last night, to result in me not taking a break:
Jess asked if I wanted to go out for mine first, since I started at 8 and she started at 9, but I told her "Meh... I don't really feel like having one right now. You can go out if you want." So she went and asked Mark, and Mark came and asked me to make sure that's what was going on, and then after an initial fuss about having to cover drive through for half an hour, agreed to let her go.
I don't know whether Mark had one or not (and even if he did, I'll bet he didn't clock out), but I didn't, and never saw any need to. Some nights, sure, it's nice to sit down, have something to eat, and relax for half an hour, but other nights, not so much. I would've preferred to have one tonight (well, moreso just to have Mark take drive through for a little while so I could get the dishes caught up), but there were only three people working, and we were too busy to allow anyone to go on one.
And that's completely setting aside the "Since when were breaks mandatory?" question. Up 'till now (and probably for a while to come), all the indication I've ever been given was "You can go out for your break if you want." Well, there was that certain instance on Good Friday, but I can sort of understand why it was done then.
I don't understand her on two other points either. First of all, for some inane reason, she saw fit to tell me one of their dogs (Andreas Mark, I think) got into her blood pressure pills :s Then also, as I was walking back to try to get more dishes done, I heard her say to Jerome and the other people in the middle "Want to have an orgasm in your mouth? Go to the superstore, buy the Hersheys' cookies, put them in the fridge, let them cool down, then take one out and put it in your mouth." I said something to the effect of not knowing what I walked into, then she felt the need to tell me to take my innocent little mind back to the dishes~ Yeah, she probably meant it jokingly, but still, you shouldn't judge someone just by what you can see (I guess) :3
So anyways, it's 6:30 right now. I know Adam has to go to work sometime this morning, but given how tired I am right now, that may prove not to be a problem after all. Three days off now, then have to be back at 8 on Monday. Finally. Although I do plan on going in there sometime after 8 tonight to ask John just what was going on when he came through tonight. I think he was drunk, but he was... well... really energetic as well :p
I had planned on going to Heart and Stroke today, but looking at things right now, I won't be, but I have to think: I'll end up going Wednesday of next week, then I also have Thursday, Friday, and Saturday off, so either I can go three days in a row, or just Wednesday and Thursday / Friday.
And now I'm either going to watch some more Home Improvement or go to bed. I brought Super Paper Mario down with the intent to try it out, but I'm too tired to right now. Probably sometime tonight~
