I Hate Coupons

Read the above title over a few times. Take a real good look at it. Do you notice anything unusual about this statement? If not, read it over a few more times. Pay close attention to the words “I hate.” Now did you catch it? If you still haven’t caught the message, let me spell it out in clearer terms. I hate any and all customers that have come into Quizno’s with a coupon and therefore made me work an hour overtime. Got the message now?

Ever since the most recent set of coupons were sent out, we’ve had non-stop business. Kyle even wrote a message to Paul saying that we needed to have more staff on at nights, because we’re not getting our breaks (required by law) and we’re still getting out late. Even today, on a Sunday – usually the day with the least business – we made over $1000 with cash and Interac. That’s just unheard of at Quizno’s.

This is my third day working in a row, and the past two nights I’ve gotten out an hour late. And it’s all due to this coupon traffic of people saying, “Ooh, I’ve never been to Quizno’s! I should go try it out and buy six different subs to try all the different choices they have.” I can’t stand it anymore. That’s the main reason why I quit. I can’t handle getting out an hour late every night and then trying to study for exams or do homework or any of that crap. I actually enjoy working there, just not closing there.

So that’s my night. I ran around the store constantly, and when that was all over I ran around some more. Tomorrow I’ve got to do a Parenting and a World Religions exam, which I’m not looking forward to. Considering right now I’m running on about 6 hours of sleep, and tonight likely won’t be any different, I can see that tomorrow is shaping up to be a nightmare. I only wish it were. Unfortunately, I must actually live it out instead of waking up and having it all over with.

I’m done my rant. Now I just have to study for World Religions… Ahh, screw it. I’m just going to sit here, eat, and listen to music. I deserve it.
