First Night Back at Work

It was uneventful to say the least.  We weren’t very busy, I didn’t make much money, and everyone was very quiet.  In other words, it was a snore of a night.

My last table came in 4 minutes before closing.  They were tourists and were kind of shocked that we closed so early.  It’s still sort of light out when we close so it does seem early.  The guy asked if Cody would get the snow that Yellowstone Park was getting.  I wasn’t aware of a storm in the area so he explained that the park was getting a lot of snow right now and they closed the gates.  Yeah dude, it’s called WINTER.  Yellowstone Park is closed for it every year from November until May.  He was all bummed out that he and his wife couldn’t go up there.  Way to research your vacation destination before you got there, Clark W. Griswold. 

The only other notable event was the Eye Candy made the Page of Shame in the local paper.  It seems he goes out by his house every morning to pray before he comes in to work (yeah, he fits in with us) and some woman called the sheriff to complain that he’s sleeping in his car.  Sleeping/praying, it all looks the same.  The sheriff called him at work today to ask what he was doing out there every morning.  WTF?!  You can deal drugs, watch child porn on your computer, beat your spouse, and/or abandon your animals, but you damn well better not pray in your car.  The Eye Candy thought it was a little funny and couldn’t believe people actually called the police on that sort of stuff. 

Oh yes we do.  Yellowstone Park is closed and we don’t have anything else better to do.

    Sounds boring but at least it got you back in to work gently, I suppose.

    Recently we noticed a kid of about eighteen, parked in our private parking space, rolling a joint. Dave went out and asked him to move “I can’t smoke this outside my Mum’s house” explained the kid. “Well you can’t smoke it outside MINE either!” Dave replied. The kid drove off and parked in the car park of the old people’s home opposite.

    I can see the cops showing up and the kid telling them he bought the weed from you. Kids are so dumb.

    I think boring is good more often than not. So enjoy the ease back into work. On the other hand, not much money sucks.

    Why does dude pray in his car? Isn’t he allowed to pray in the house?

    I think it’s being closer to nature, but nature is still pretty cold around here right now.

    Oh my gosh! They didn’t know Yellowstone was closed for the Winter? LOLOL

    In truth, I didn’t know that either, but I’d damn sure call before I showed up!

    Glad you had a slow night to ease back into things. I bet everyone was glad to see you! Did they have any stories about what happened while you were gone?

    I got many hugs and texts from people who weren’t working making sure I was back. There were lots and lots of bitching about Little Miss Know It All. I think she convinced Darren to fix her schedule so she doesn’t work with me any more. Sounds good to me. HAHAHA!

    Were those tourists from back East? I bet they’d never met a real mountain before. LOL

    They had southern accents. I’m not saying anything else. 🙂
