I'm sorry i haven't posted in forever, but probably like everyone else this summer, i've been REALLY busy, so let me bring you all up to speed.
As most of you know i am THE not so proud employee of Arby's. Now you might be wondering why i said "THE not so proud employee" as opposed to "A not so proud employee." Lemme give you a couple of reasons why.
1.) I'm one of two employees currently employed at Arby's who can perform all the tasks required by the job with anything like proficiency
2.) I work more hours than most of the managers (usually in excess of 40 hours per week.)
3.) I work all shifts except opening. These include lunch, dinner, afternoon, evening and closing, often until 3 or 4 am.
I don't mean to sound ungrateful, i have had some great and fun times at Arby's. I'll tell you about some of the funniest, and coolest times that i've had.
One day Laila and I were on backline (where you make all the sandwiches) and everything was done and we were really bored. So we put our heads together and decided that we should play hacky-sac. Our next question was what to use for our make-shift hacky-sac. We decided to use a pack of marinara sauce, and so we did. IT WAS AWESOME!!! We had a great time. If you don't believe me i have pictures on my cell phone.
All great stories seem to begin on backline. Anyways, one evening Eulalio and i were on backline, when suddenly Eulalio disappeared. About 10 minutes later he came through the back door with a BK bag, turns out he got some BK for himself and then a sandwich for our manager. Naturally, i wasn't gonna let it go down like that. So i was like "where the heck is mine!?!?!?" He responded by telling me to grab an order of mozzarella sticks and head over to BK and i could get some free food. Of course i was like "SWEET!" and so that's what i did. Turns out i had to pay for the food because of some extinuating circumstances, but hey at least i got some BK. (Daniel, it was good to see you, I'm expecting you to hook me up with some free food next time.) Needless to say that was a pretty good night.
Another day i was working during the afternoon. To justify our actions, i have to say that we were really bored because business had been really slow all day. We have a radio on backline, and we were listening to 96.5. Then someone started ummm... "moving to the beat." Everyone working knew more or less how to hmmm "break it down," (yes rebecca i have been working on it and am getting better if i do say so myself, but i still can't spin on my head, oh well.) So, since we were all bored we all started dancing and, it escalated.... We were getting ready to dance couples when our General Manager showed up, so we thought it was best to stop. (Our manager not only participated in this escapade, he started it!)
There are a bunch of other stories i could tell, but i won't burden you with any more, assuming that you've made it this far.
Other than work, i've been doing stuff around the house, and trying to do something with friends whenever i have the time, which is not often.
And that's about everything that's been going on recently
