Well, it looks like next week will be a rest week. Went into work last night and they had me scheduled for Monday through Thursday, next week. I reminded them, I had already asked for Tuesday night off. They came back later and said it was taken care of.

Don't know if taken care of means, I'm scheduled for a different day than Tuesday, or just have it off. If it's the latter, then next week will only be 4 evenings. (There's also a 2 hour training session on Sunday night.) Which means I wind up with about 15 - 16 hours total. I guess I shouldn't complain, two of the guys only ended up with 5 hours each.

They say, they are trying to run lean for the next couple of weeks to keep labor costs under control, because mid-November, there will be lots of new people hired for the Christmas season. But, even though we're short staffed, we have to keep providing the same high level of customer service. Yeah, right.

At one point last night, I had 6 customers wanting computers at the same time, and there was no one else in the department. How am I supposed to give each of them personal service, when they are piled up that deep. They all got their computers, but they didn't get the regular sales pitch, so they didn't buy all of the options. So, at the end of the day, we were way short on options. And we got bitched at, because of it.

Shit, I'm ranting again. I have tonight off, maybe I just need to go out and have a relaxing evening. (Or go find somebody to fuck. Like that would ever happen.)
