and also fitting for a friday. or i guess any day really.
but i have a plan and it's something that i need to discuss with you guys and also i'm going to need all of everyone's positive energy sent my way in hopes that it will work out.
so newsflash i don't want to work the second job tonight. surprise, surprise.
and the deal is is that i'm not a liar. so you won't find me making up some bullshit excuse about not being able to work because i'm sick or something. and i won't not do that because of my moral compass or anything. mainly i won't do that because i'll forget whatever i made up as my excuse and end up posting something on facebook that will get get me busted. like go figure i'll be like "I AM SO VIOLENTLY ILL I MIGHT DIE." and then i'll get drunk and forget and post a picture of me chugging peppermint schnapps or or something and the owner of the restaurant will be all "glad to see you're feeling better." and then i'll be drunk and won't know how to respond and then everything will be ruined. so typically i like to err on the side of honesty mainly to save my ass.
but i digress. back to my plan.
the plan is that around 10AM i'm going to text the manager and i'm hoping that the conversation will go something like this:
shannon: HEY JOHN.
shannon: i'm probably going to no call, no show for work tonight so could you just tell me that i don't have to work tonight and save us all the trouble?
john: fine shannon. you don't have to work tonight.
and then this will be me:
UPDATE: it worked and zomg HONESTLY REALLY IS THE BEST POLICY.
also please note that me no call, no showing was a total bluff on my part because i'm such a giant pussy and also it's just not nice and i would not and have not ever done it.
p.s. his initial response his my favorite. it's like he know that whatever is coming at him next he's not going to like. it kills me.
