Honestly, having the ability to count past ten, without removing my shoes to do so, has turned into a huge employment disadvantage to me.
It takes a scheduled day off and turns it into a day of work, albeit a short day.
We are required to do an inventory twice a year. Another requirement is that said inventory process start at 6:00 a-effin-m in the morning. This ensures said inventory is completed prior to the store opening of 10:00 am.
Of course I'm scheduled off today, and as you've probably already guessed, today was inventory day.
There are two things which are annoying about inventory. One being the start time of 6:00 a-effin-m. We open at 10:00 am and inventory takes all of 45 minutes, and that's at a leisurely pace. I'm getting up at 5:00 a-double-effin-m to do this. My total drive time is equal to the amount of time spent counting shit. We could start this process two hours later, or more, and still have ample time to complete this before store opening.
The other annoying thing has to do with worthless co-worker who never, ever, has to be involved in this process. When I asked the boss why he never has her help him with inventory his reply was "You know Alicia cannot count past ten without removing her shoes and relying on her toes to get to twenty. Hell, if she lost a finger she'd never accomplish counting to ten again. Plus, she has trouble in getting to work on time as it is, do you honestly think she could get here at 6:00 am?"
My reply, "Why is she still employed here then?
His reply... was nothing, just a deer in the headlights look back at me.
Whoever came up with the saying "Silence is Golden" is certainly no friend of mine today.
