Not always Smrt

Some days I shine with brilliance and other days I will blame a lack of caffeine. 

Take yesterday morning. One of my supervisors was not feeling well and with how it all played out I ended up working 6-10 a.m./7-11 p.m.  Had me a three hour nap in the afternoon. It was awesome. 

However my tale is one that took place at 5:45 a.m. I had only arrived at work and was getting the front set up with mats and blocking tills off when I heard the phone. 

I beetled off to the Customer Service (forever after known as CS) to answer the phone. There are two things you need to know about our phone system:

1) Before 7 a.m. it rings on ‘night’ system so any phone can answer the line calling in.

2) Our phones also pipe through music.

So half asleep I grab the phone and do my spiel only to hear: 

‘why wouldn’t you answer the phone?’

It was Santa calling me! Holy shit what did I do? Had I really been that bad? And why was he mad that I would not answer the phone?

In my defense I had not yet had my coffee.

As I stated stupidly at the phone I realized I was speaking to no one. Someone else has answered the phone and when I picked it up the Christmas carol continued playing. The actual line was ‘and you better be good tonight.’

Needless to say when I told K3 she died laughing. I was so befuddled. And in hindsight I guess I already know how naughty I am Santa does not need to call and tell me. 😁
