Default Methinks I need a secretary ...

Just got up a while ago to prepare to go to work -- 11:30 to 3:30.

For some reason I decided to double-check.

Um, it's NEXT Friday that I work that shift. My shift today is 4:30 to 8:30.

I either need a secretary or I need to learn how to read a calendar -- not to mention I need to remember what the fuck day it actually IS.

The joys of working retail ....

I'd make some snarky comment back, but I can't remember why I'm supposed to be insulted ...

*peeks in* 'Who am I?' 'What am I doing here?' *Ah...it's the old un's thread... no need for me in here...just leave them wittering away about how much better it was when they were young...*






*I'm sure they'd try to poke me with their sticks,but one would topple out their chair trying to pick it up, one would hook the old dear next to them by mistake and another would be sitting there wondering what on Earth they'd picked up that stick for...*

Do you have a smartphone? Use the calendar app to enter your shifts for the upcoming week, and set the reminder for the day before, the morning of the shift at the time you need to get up, and again enough time before your shift for you to get ready and get there.

During the middle of the Brain Thing, that was me. I was in my early 30's. I never did get all of my short-term memory retention back, and still have to write down anything important since I am unable to remember verbal instructions for more than 30 seconds.

I can tell you that I have never been so glad that I have a smartphone with a calendar function, since it's always on while I'm awake and I never used to remember to check my little pocket diary.
