I have a pet peeve, well I have more than one, but I would like to focus on one in particular this morning. I would like to preface this rant by saying I really do enjoy where I work, it's a small quite environment. I can get dicey some days but most of the time it's really enjoyable and not too stressful. When I say small it really is, there are only about 8-9 of us here on any given day. This is great most of the time, but on days like today...not so great. Each morning, like clockwork at 9:30, the guys go on a drink run. Honestly, I don't mind that they go on a drink run, in fact they usually grab me some ice and an odd hot chocolate every once in awhile. But what really makes my butt itch is when all 4 indoor sales guys go. They justify this by saying, "Randy will cover the phones". This is not a solution to the problem of leaving me alone with demanding customers. What they know, as well as I do, is that Randy is what we call a long talker. Of course Randy will cover the phones while there gone as long as that means one phone call every half hour. Personally I think that drink runs could be covered by 2-3 people tops, but apparently I work with a bunch of middle school girls who can't go to the gas station by themselves.
IT JUST BUGS....that's all!
