|White Rose at the Inn where I work|
Just touching base here folks to let everyone know that I am still alive and well. I worked at the hotel last night 3 pm to 11 pm then in this morning from 7 am to 3 pm. I don't have to tell you workers out there that I'm operating on exhaust fumes at this point.
Thank goodness my manager hired the replacement full-time front desk clerk today. This time it is an elderly man like me. That's good news because unlike the front desk clerk who left, who was a single Mom with two female children, I probably won't have to be called in on short notice like I have been in the past. You know how it is with the single moms, always one of the children is sick or she can't get a baby sitter. Us single guys, rarely a crises unless we're passing kidney stones (which happened to me a couple of years ago causing me to miss a week's worth of work).
So here I am folks, pushing off of of these blog postings that I hate to do. Little content and nothing clever to say for you all to remember and gush over. Just touching base letting you know I will be on this schedule for at least another two weeks. The new front desk clerk doesn't start until May 27th. At least his training will be minimal, he is coming from a job as a hotel front desk clerk. Thank God for small favors.
The hotel is full this weekend. As I left today at 3 some of the kiddies were already in, screaming and talking non-stop. I can forsee a LOT of calls to the front desk for extra pillows and blankets. Hopefully I don't get THAT call for the clogged up toilet (a not unusual occurrence when the kids are in the rooms - they tend to throw towels down the toilet - probably one of the reasons our major competitor hotel in town doesn't accept children).
I'm in tomorrow afternoon 3 to 11 and the same hours for Sunday.Then I have two WHOLE days off until I do it all over again...for the next two weeks.
Hold all my calls.
