A long day

It feels like it's been a longer day than usual somehow. I think this is because I worked Thursday, Friday, and today. I'll be working tomorrow, Monday, and Tuesday morning too. It's going to make for a long week. I've gotten used to having my Saturday nights off. I don't know that I'll be helping the other hostess out with this shit again for a bit. It's too much. I need my days off.

Anyway, I decided to break in the shoes I'm wearing to the interview... because most every Saturday I've worked lately has been slow. Not tonight. Oh no, of course not. At one point, I had seven different parties waiting to be seated and nowhere to put them. I had one reservation show up half an hour late, and I had another one show up half an hour early. Just... don't do that to a restaurant when you go out to eat. It throws everybody off. It's just rude as hell. Anyway, at least I brought some backup flats, though it took until 8:00 for me to have time enough to switch.

Carlos was good enough to let me stay on until 10:00 tonight, seeing as how [personal profile] katsuko was scheduled to be at IKEA until 11:00. As you can kind of guess, she got done earlier than that, but that's a good thing. That's a fine thing. And it was good of Carlos to let me stay on that late, keep making money. To be fair, it was likely because he wanted to be able to talk with his boyfriend and not have to go seat people, but that's okay, no matter the reasoning. It was still a bit more money, yeah?

What hasn't happened today was writing. I took my notebook with me today, but no words happened. There just wasn't time. I'm going to try to make it up tomorrow.
