Today I honked my horn in anger for the first time ever. (Listen California license plate dude, in a double turn lane the vehicle on the left turns into the left lane, the vehicle on the right gets the right lane. Just like the stripes on the asphalt are painted. If you really wanted to be over in the right lane you should have decided that before you chose the leftmost of the two turn lanes. Cutting me off gets you honked at.)
Today I nearly cried in front of my staff when B_ showed them a slideshow on the history of the place they will be working (and I will not.)
Today I re-certified in CPR.
Today I packed two cases of frozen peas, two cases of frozen mixed veggies, one case of green beans, six top round beefs, six turkeys and two cases of pork chops into the smaller chest freezer and still got the lid closed.
Today I discovered I have one more damn problem to solve because my big freezer quit running.
Today I talked with a Florida guy who did not know what the electric plugs on the front of trucks are for.
Today I learned that my weekly delivery won't get here until after 7:00 PM.
Today I spent 12 hours on the job but only wrote eight on the timesheet because I cant afford to pay myself that much overtime.
