It's a beautiful day today. The sun is shinning brightly and the temperature is in the low 40s at 8:45 AM EST. I will go for a bicycle ride after I do my core exercises. I have to work at 5 PM tonight. I hope I can leave work around 12:45 AM/12:50 AM. Yesterday, I had the worst customer. He yelled at me because I didn't have his wallet in Guest Services. Apparently, one of my co-workers found his wallet and turned it in to the managers and no one told me about the discovery. The customer said that he was told the wallet was found and in Guest Services. After being yelled at for several minutes, I told the customer to calm or I will have him removed from the theater.

    Wow, that really sucks. Been in that situation exactly while working at Wal-Mart as a floor associate. You just want to tell them off when they go psycho like that, but instead you're require to just "smile" and nod your head. Ugh... emoticon

I got home around 1:30 AM last night. Although I was scheduled to work until 3 AM. The Booth Manager and I went and asked the Assistant GM to let us go early and that he closes booth. Yeah. An early Thursday night. I did 13,760 steps (6.5 miles) and burned 670.99 calories.

Today, I work in Guest Services from 5 PM to 1 AM. Not a lot walking. I hope not as many issues as last week. It was a really bad last week.

    I hope you have a better week next week. I used to work those late evening hours. The good part was always waking up late morning and being able to enjoy the daylight while others worked.

Last night at work, I was caught doing my class assignment when I didn't have any movies to thread or start. Basically, I had some down time. I was told by the Booth Manager that I shouldn't be doing that but he would ignore what I was doing. So, I put the class assignment away and during my down time I sat around or walked around doing nothing. I did walk over 10,000 steps! [10,801 steps, 5.1 miles, and 519.9 calories burned.]

Tonight, I work in booth again. 6 PM to 3 AM. I'll leave my class assignment at home. LOL.

It's back to work after having three days off. It was nice having three days off. I work 2 PM to 11 PM today. Yes, it's a long day. It's okay. I will get a bicycle ride in before going to work. I think I will burned at least 500 calories at work today as I work in booth and will require lots of walking. I will take an article that I need to read for my class and read it during my down times.

    Well, the bicycle ride was a snafu. I ended up with a flat tire on my way into Old Town Alexandria. I pushed my bicycle to a gas station where I tried to pump the tire. I filled the tire and then immediately the air came out. I think a bad valve. I did three times. So, I pushed my bicycle to a nearby shop and left it for them to repair and tune-up my bike. It'll be ready tomorrow morning or afternoon. I hope for the morning so I can get a ride in before going to work at 6 PM tomorrow night.

A Day Off (Tuesday, November 3)

Tuesday, November 03, 2009

I requested that I be scheduled to work after 12 PM and ended up with the day off. YEAH! I will go vote, ride my bicycle, register for my Spring '10 classes, meet friends for lunch, and go groceries shopping. I will also do some studying later today. It's a nice and chilly day but I will enjoy it.
