Not Your Everyday News

Tuesday, June 24, 2008


Kind of disappointing weekend. First, the Euro 2008 soccer
tourney is not going as we had hoped. Greece got knocked 
out first, and then Italy; the Italians lost a real heartbreaker
in the quarterfinals to Spain, on penalty kicks after a score-
less regular time and overtime. UGH.  Of course, being fans,
hubby and I will watch the semis and the final; the first semi
pits Germany against Turkey, the second has Russia against
Spain. Personally I hope Germany comes out the winner,
although the Russians have looked rather impressive. We 
shall see. At the restaurant, I had one waitress pull a no
call, no show for the second time, so she is out for good this
time; we had taken her back after she pulled this the first
time after hearing and believing her sob story. Then another
waitress gave her 2 weeks notice as she has some health 
issues and, unfortunately, a difficult family situation. So it
looks like we are about to enter another shorthanded
phase at the restaurant after going several months without
any employee issues. Not too surprising I guess, nature of
the beast so to speak!
