I hate work...

I was at work today, when I took 3 customers in a row because the other front line person was in the back. That wasn't so bad. It happens. Anyway, one order was 2 sandwiches, the second was 2 sandwiches and a fry, and the third was a soda and a vanilla shake. I get the first order, notice the second one's not up yet, so I go to make the shake for the third one. I get it a third filled when I realize I accidentally hit chocolate instead of vanilla. So, slightly peeved at myself for that. Not too bad yet. Then, as I'm filling the shake with vanilla, my coworker comes up and says "Mike... You've got customers..." I look back for a split-second and see only the customers that I just took orders for. I shake my head and turn back to find the shake overflowing, which is precisely what I DIDN'T want it to do, since the machine's auto-filler is broken. So, what else can I do but throw the shake away, because no one wants a cup with shake all down the sides. So what does she say? "Mike. Don't be wastin' shakes like that!" Stress meter climbing... I get my orders out. Then she says, "Mike... Clean up your mess..." Exactly what I was about to do, and she apparently has to spell it out for me... I go to the back, grab a mop, clean up the shake, then go back to put the mop away. As I'm coming up, she says "Mike... Quit playin' around in the back and help me up here." Stress levels rising some more... So, I'm up taking more orders. Two of the orders had shakes with them, so I decided that I wasn't going to be distracted again and I would focus on the shake to make sure it didn't overflow. Well, by this time, Shanee, my manager had come up front and asked me "Mike. Is this order for here or to go." I told her "For here." She said, "Well you should have put out a tray first." Stress level rose to high levels and I let out a frustrated grumble/growl. She sent me home for that. I hate my job...
