Running a store is interesting. It's so different from my day job as an engineer. The two jobs stress my brain in different ways.
The store is developing a routine, though we still have a long way to go. It sounds like I'm the easy boss, and RO is the hard boss. Yesterday, RO needed some supplies for the front desk, but couldn't find them. He asked one of the girls (We employ three highschool girls) to look for it.
We looked together but couldn't find the supplies. I asked her to tell RO. She asked me "Can you do that? He'll yell at me."
We had a small Christmas Party at the store. About thirty people showed up. It was fun.
We had a white elephant gift exchange. It was fairly fun, but went on way too long. RO was a bit drunk and tried to rule the proceedings. But, you really can't get 30 drinking adults all be quiet and act professional.
Boone drank a lot and got sick-- he doesn't usually drink. I could tell he was on the verge of puking when he got into my truck for the ride home. I kept my eye on him all the way. As we pulling along side home, while I was still driving, he opened the door and proceeded to unload.
