Under Construction

I am sure that I have mentioned that our store is undergoing a massive renovation. Store is expanding. Departments are moving. It is an exciting time for all. And the fact that I roam the store shopping for curbside I am the person everyone turns to now when they are in need of assistance.

Once we are done it will be amazing. New tills. I am ever so hopeful for the tills we have are as old as the earth. Falling apart. I keep threatening to blow them all up that is how annoying they are. And I know how to do it having once been the one who did all the fixing of the tills as supervisor.

To start our deli and bakery have made their way into their new homes. Tuesday our bakery was shut down while they moved everything over and got it all set up. Yesterday they did a massive production amount due to the closure Tuesday so for the morning and early afternoon I was in there packaging up buns. I was a bun packaging fool. Hot dog/hamburger/dinner/kaiser/tray buns. I bagged them all. And donuts! I packaged up six packs of donuts.

Had put the hotdog buns in incorrectly and when the young lady I was working with pointed it out to me I told her to leave them and I would correct my error. She says to me ‘oh I like that you are responsible.’ I looked at her with my eyebrow raised and said ‘I am 49 I think I can correct my mistakes.’

This same young lady came through my curbside area as the bakery runs off from it. I had my water bottle there and was taking a drink when she says to me: ‘Oh this is a good place to hide your water. I never thought of that.’ Me turning to her: ‘This is my curbside area. My workspace. I have my bottle of water out I am not hiding anything.’

I laughed it off sort of but as you can tell it niggled a little bit at me. However she works bakery and each department is a little mini-kingdom unto itself so I get it. But when I am old enough to be your mother’s mom please do not put on a ‘I know more than you’ attitude.

If you look closely (not that you want to) at two of the pics there I am hairnetted and gloved with my tongue sticking out (on my mask lol) packaging away. K was taking the pictures so I am sure that she did this on purpose.
