lyrics to Jaspers song [Apr. 30th, 2007|11:31 pm]
Where A Kid Can Be A Kid

mistopher
So when we first got the show i decided my goal for the quarter was to learn the words so i started a list and would write a new city down whenever i heard the song play then like 3 days later someone was telling me that that was a real song so i looked up the words with google and just in case any of you want to learn the words and impress your cast here ya go.


I was toting my pack along the long dusty Winnemucca road
When along came a semi with a high canvas covered load
If your goin' to Winnemucca, Mack with me you can ride
And so I climbed into the cab and then I settled down inside
He asked me if I'd seen a road with so much dust and sand
And I said, "Listen! I've traveled every road in this here land!"

I've been everywhere, man
I've been everywhere, man
Crossed the deserts bare, man
I've breathed the mountain air, man
Of travel I've had my share, man
I've been everywhere

This was an autographed drawing done in 1994 by Caroll Spinney, the puppeteer who portrays Big Bird on "Sesame Street", for a friend of mine who was Chuck E. at the Union NJ store but quit before I joined the cast later that year.

how does your store make magic? [Jan. 1st, 2007|10:08 pm]

Ok so this question stems from a couple of commentversations in both cec communities I posted in, but since every cec is different and does things a little differently i was wondering what do you do at your store that you think works really well that you think all the cecs should do or that would help other stores out just small things that you might do to save time. like for example here's some things we do at ours.

when we had walkins we used to tell them they can get a free ice cream at the register but now we give all parties a bday tent and the game room takes out a ice cream sandwhich with a candle in it. it saves cash time and its better for hospitality. ( i think most store already do this though)

instead of having to blow up new balloons way in the back everytime we give one away at kid check we keep a couple extra blown up just inside the kitchen door so we can replace them faster when we are busy the kidcheck person can get them and still see kid check..

at night when the closer takes down the salad bar we used to dump the ice into a bucket and then dump that bucket in the prep sink but that takes 3 or 4 trips so now the kitchen person leaves one of the big garbage cans with wheels on it empty so we can fill it with all the salad bar ice in one trip then we dump it in the mop sink. way way faster!!

I cant think of other short cuts that we take right now but what do you guys do? anything that i might be able to use at my store?

awful Saturday [Dec. 31st, 2006|03:04 am]
Where A Kid Can Be A Kid

Can i not have another day like today any time soon please? k thanx. I don't really know what made it so bad i went in at noon even though i didnt have to be there till 3 and called all the b-day parties and then Maria (a manager) asked me to clock in early and do prep because we had already used all the prep that Stef made this morning. So i did prep from 2:30 untill 4:30 just to catch us up.

Marcus (the GM) was having a crappy day too something to do with the buget getting over written and having last years budget instead of this years? i don't know but he wasn't happy plus we were almost out of pepperoni. So Marcus left around 4 to go to Spartanburg and get pepperoni and some other stuf so he never got back excpet to drop off the peperoni. so on a night we normally have 2 or sometimes 3 managers we had 1, although i gotta say she did a pretty good job.
Anyways So because i had been in the back so long and i was supposed to be up front at 3 they were short up front so that by the time i got up there it looked like a tornado had gone through. No matter what we did it felt like we just couldn't get caught up. I mean we didn't have any voids or anything like that but we just couldn't catch up we didn't even flip crocks till almost 8. And why is it that no one ever wants ice cream untill the machine breaks down?

Merch was bare i swear i have never seen it so empty there was gray everywhere i had to refill nearly everything and as i'm writing this i just remembered that i totally forgot to blow up a bunch of new balls for the wall.

At like 7 fifteen i was so frustrated i told Jet (the closing manager and my friend) i had to go outside for like five minutes, just take a fake cigarette break i was so overwhelmed i felt like i was just gonna break down right there at the register and you guys don't know me but i am NOT like that. I work better under pressure and when i am stressed out.

So me and Jet went outside and Maria was leaving as we were out there and we were talking and Jet was telling her how i felt and Maria said she felt the exact same way today, that she was in the back in tears because she felt like she needed to do so much and she couldn't do it all herself. I don't know why it was so bad i mean it's not like there was anyone not doing their job or anything it just sucked. She described exactly the way i was feeling. She said we have just been so behind all day and it was so hard to try and catch up. I couldn't wait to just get the hell out of there tonight and of course Jet made us do a team close and i was seriously not in the mood and the stuff that she had me do was just stuff that bothers her because she has serious OCD. (i'm not being snarky she really does she can't help it) I know i was kind of a bitch to her about it too but i couldn't help it i never complain and tonight i was just beyond what i could take.

Everyone says that it's just cause it's a Saturday and Saturdays suck but i actually like Saturdays they don't piss me off like they do other people. Jet said something about how i have to get used to it cause this is what sales are gonna be like this season and i know that and i CAN handle it i'm the one who helps everyone else handle it i just couldn't tonight. I almost never have a night like this where i just feel like i might spontaneously combust if i have to be there two seconds longer. I think i deserve it. I came home and took a long hot bath and just relaxed and i'm going to sleep in tommorow so i can be in a better mood to close tommorow.
I'm glad we have this group cause you guys will know exactly what i'm saying.

And the ear infection that i'm still trying to get over also didn't help at all because my right ear is all plugged and its really hard to hear the guests at the register especially when i have bad hearing on a good day.

I hope your Saturdays were all better then mine.
