So today I had thought I had off work. I looked at my schedule a while ago and got it into my head that this was my first day off this week. Well it wasn't. ^^; I never got a call or anything so I didn't think differently either. So I went about today cleaning things and running my errands like I had planned. A little after 4pm I went over to clean off some of the papers from my computer desk and was looking at my shift papers to see which were the old ones so I could throw them out. When I got to this weeks I had to look from it and to the calendar about five or so times until it clicked in my head....yeah I didn't have off today. ^^;
Well again they didn't call me so I figured I could still be wrong. So I didn't panic or anything and called up work to talk to one of the managers to ask. I asked and yeah I had to come in and apparently their systems are down so they couldn't call me to come yeah. Again why you shouldn't completely rely on technology. So I had asked if they somehow got someone else to come in or something and they didn't and two cashiers called off. So I told him give me about 20 or so minutes and I'd change and make my way in. I was supposed to work noon-8:30pm, but luckily I only live about two and a half miles from the store. So it wouldn't have taken long to get there anyways. Plus this is the first time this has ever happened here so I won't get in trouble for it at all.
Though after that I was basically out of it for most of the rest of the night. That and because of the calls offs and such they had asked if I could stay till 10pm possibly when the store closed. I told them I can play it by ear and if there's that much to do then I can. I actually ended up blowing through a good bit of the store and finished most of it by about 9:50. So I had asked if I could just leave then and that was fine with them. Plus it worked out because they gave us free drinks and candy before we left. Along with I actually have off tomorrow and Wednesday. So at least things ended up working out in the end. ^^;
