One step closer

To the weekend! I half jinxed myself yesterday – got into work and right off the bat found a big hairy issue and spent the better part of the morning trying to figure out why the software responded with, “LOL, fuck you” when I mashed the buttons. Then towards the end of the day, it registered that my to-do spreadsheet had some things due on 4/18 – and the QC spreadsheet (not mine) said 4/14. Mine was right, but there were some “Oh shit!” moments there.

And this morning as I poured my cold brew I realized I don’t really have enough to get me through the whole morning (enough for the moment, but…) and thought I could hit up Starbucks and opened the app and my local store is closed today. Can’t help but wonder if some retaliatory short scheduling happened after they filed for a union election – there have been days when mobile ordering is turned off cause they’ve been short scheduled. The app says they’ll be open again tomorrow – I can’t think Starbucks Corporate would be stupid enough to close the store altogether, but their behavior has been pretty atrocious lately.

For a long time, Starbucks has been known as a fairly decent workplace, and boy are they blowing that with their anti-union bullshit. It’s incredibly disappointing, especially considering the outgoing CEO had a $60 million golden parachute. Just let the stores unionize and be a union friendly employer – it won’t be the end of the fucking world.

[ETA: Realized they are closed today cause the union vote has started. LET’S GO MY BEAUTIFUL BARISTAS AND GET YOU SOME WORKPLACE PROTECTIONS!!!]

Yesterday I did the Easter shop and was reminded that my local Giant has developed a weird habit of taking down 90% of the holiday stuff a week before the holiday. Thank you CVS for actually having Easter candy. (My brother had been at Giant last week and said they were still fully loaded so I don’t think they sold out of everything.) But we have candy and brunch stuff, so it’s all good.

Yes, I am a grown ass adult and I make up Easter baskets for myself and my brother – cause you’re never to damn old for an Easter basket.

Welp, time to go do the thing – my shit is still fairly well under control, so it may be an early in, early out day!

Have an awesome day.
