We were short staffed. Leslie was home with a bad cold, Janis and Greg-the-Manager were in a training class Upstairs. Heren, the teller supervisor was in a class at another branch and Steve, the regional manager, was covering at a branch in the far south suburbs. This left me with one CSR and three tellers. And non-stop customers. Literally,
I had somebody at my desk straight through from 10:00 through to 2:30. Since the cut-off for work on today's business day is, theoretically, 2pm I had to scramble to write the credit and debit tickets I need for the accounts I had opened and closed. I knew the tellers couldn't balance out the day 'till I came back there and balanced the vault with Shobha. I finished my tickets about 2:50 and ran back to the teller line. Bcause of something that got bugged up on Tuesday it took us a good half hour to do the vault. I got back to my desk at 3:20, intending to grab my jacket and purse and run out for some lunch. well, three customers later, I did just that. I finally sorted my paperwork out and was down to bare desktop by about 6:30. Just half an hour after we closed. Now, I still have, literally, a stack of filing about 4 inches high. (And I just thought of something I forgot to do that I will have to run in and do before 2:oo tomorrow. I have to remember to wear something really tatty so they can't ask me to stay.)
When I got home I found a message on my answering machine from my Ex. He only calls me when something is wrong. Sigh. He didn't leave his number so I'll have to wait for him to call again.
But... In my mailbox I found the dvd copy of Roper's concert at Sixteen Tones last Year. SO, I'm sitting here on the floor of the family room watching Roper sing on the big screen TV and doing a brain dump into the wireless laptop.
My day is saved.
Thanks for listening. And you folks in England, Thank Martin GK for me. : )
