It's a circus out there

And I am not just talking about the Ringling Brothers and Barnum
and Bailey Circus in town for 4 days. There are days where it's all a
circus - work, friends, daily life, and the holidays. The restaurant's
version of a 3 ring show exhibited itself last night. We were a cook
AND a waitress short, and naturally we were busy most of the night.
Just so y'all know, it is guaranteed to be busy when you are short
handed. In those situations, I am indeed the ringmaster of the
restaurant! But in all honesty, I love running the show, no matter
how chaotic it gets at times. Just galls me when people don't show
up to work on a Friday night, which 99 times out of a 100 is the
busiest night of the week, and they know that....irresponsible and
inconsiderate....WHATEVER. Moving on. Yesterday I finally put a
dent in my Christmas shopping, actually buying the first few gifts
that I need. (those that I don't do online or by catalogue) Will try to
get my Christmas cards out in the next few days as well, and maybe
do a bit more shopping next week. What is simply absurd is the circus
that the stores have become. Everyone feeling all self-important, that
THEY
are the only ones out shopping and thus THEY need to be
waited on RIGHT AWAY. I felt so sorry for some of these ladies
working retail yesterday....yes, they chose this job, but they didn't
choose to have Mr. or Ms. Arrogant show up in front of their faces.
Hang in there retailers, just 2 more weeks! Not to mention the
circus in the post offices, with folks trying to send gifts, or the chaos
in the supermarkets, folks trying to find THE perfect ham. Me, I am
more concerned about finding some Martini and Rossi Asti Spumante
on special....am scouting all locales for that! Well, off to get our tree,
love the smell of fresh cut pine....I know, totally politically incorrect
not to do a fake plastic tree, but for me, fake and plastic refers to
certain people I run into, not trees. (fake blondes with fake tans
driving their Suburbans while on their cell phone....you overgrown
Barbies and Kens know who you are!)
