And Winner of the Klutz Award of the Year Goes To…..

If y’all guessed me than you are right.
If you guessed yourself pour a coffee sit on down and read about my latest ‘Adventure in Jay’s Life’ as a friend called it.
In the last 5 months I have had 4 work place injuries.
And apparently I must be even.
One week I hurt right hand.
Next week it was the left.
Last week I tripped over a rack hurting my left forearm
Yesterday…..
I arrived at work to disaster.
Well not really but in the middle of the night there had been a power failure.
I was aware as the ex messaged both T and myself at 3 a.m. to see if we had power.
When the power came back on there was a surge (?) or something which blew up/fried our motherboard (?) which connected us to the internet.
And ran our tills.
And the Debit machines.
I had three orders.
Thankfully they were able to be printed off.
Shopping my customers orders without customers in the store?
Bliss.
I got to go up and down the aisles the wrong way.
No worrying about running into anyone other than my co-workers.
No one looking at me funny if I left my cart in the middle of the aisle to run back and get something.
My first order was smaller.
The second in the $300 range.
The third in the $500 range.
Shopped them all so that when tills came back up I only had to ring them through.
The shopping takes me to 1ish.
Had a coffee from 11:20-11:35.
Began ringing through orders.
Call to make arrangements for pick up.
Customers begin coming to pick up their orders.
Take a phone order.
Last customer picks up her order and I quickly process the phone order.
By now it is almost 4.
I still have not had lunch so I decide given that I need to pick T up and have him come start the grocery shop I would take my half hour from 4-4:30.
Take my order in to the cooler.
There is a pallet on the floor and as I put the box down I tripped over it.
Falling hard on my butt/right hip/right arm.
The customer’s order including two 12 packs of pop lands on top of me.
I sat there yelling fuck fuck fuck.
Stormed out of the cooler and demanded well actually snarled that I needed the pallet moved.
Told our assistant manager what happened and as he is head of the Health & Safety Committee he is on the hunt for the person who left it there.
Went and got a form from our manager so I could fill the form out.
He chuckled and said something about my having a rough time of it.
I did not mention the last two injuries either.
Left and picked T up.
Came back.
Found out my shift changed today as I am now working curbside instead of cart cleaning.
Worked from 4:30-4:45.
Took my last coffee and shopped with T.
We came home and T helped me unload and unpack the groceries.
He made dinner.
He fed the cats.
He hung out with me all evening only going to his room when I went to mine.
And has assured me that he will clean the kitchen today before I get home.
I am thinking my disappointment in him on Wednesday may have sunk in.

Tonight the plan is to hang out and play a video game.
Bendy and The Ink Machine.
Last time we played on the computer I was screaming and he left the room.
I also would not play when home alone.
I am a bit sore today.
Okay a lot.
It hurts to move and I am hobbling.
I have rubbed the anti-inflammatory into my upper arm and shoulder.
Where I could reach on back.
So that is down to a dull thudding.
My butt hurts to sit on.
It is a good thing that I stand at work all day.
I think that there is a klutz gene that runs in our family.
Everyone has it.
Mom.
Me.
T.
My niece.
My cousins.
No one is safe.
Huh maybe I should invest in Bubble Wrap stock.
Have a Fabulous Friday all.
