Limp Bizkit - Rollin'


...do you have any idea how many times I heard that word today?

If you've never worked through (or more accurately, around) a commercial shoot, it's quite an experience. They're shooting commercials in our store for three days, and they did my department today. No, I'm not going to be on TV - they have actors for that.

Not only did I have to work late last night to set up some of the counters they'd be shooting, then turn around and go back in at 7 this morning, but we were hardly able to fill any counters for half the morning as their people and equipment essentially took over the department. Had our truck been on time, this wouldn't have been such a big deal, as we could have spent some time putting our delivery away. So of course our truck was several hours late, meaning we had practically nothing to do all morning. You might not think this is such a bad thing, but management still expected us to keep busy, and you can only clean so much for so long. Yeesh.

Tomorrow promises to be a picnic as well, as they'll be shooting the deli. We have to pass by the deli when going back and forth between our sales floor and prep room, and this area will be blocked off tomorrow, meaning that we'll have to go halfway around the store just to put product out. Oh, why couldn't my boss have given me off tomorrow instead of Friday? (sigh)

Ah well - day off is coming soon, and a party the next night. There's light ahead...
