    It's pretty sweet! There was barely any traffic this morning. The kitchen is filled with leftover food from yesterday's potluck. Only half the people are here today, and we get to leave early around 2pm :yes:

    I enjoyed the lack of traffic this morning that's for sure.

    What's even nicer is there will be even less traffic when I work on Thanksgiving, x-mas eve, x-mas, New Year's Eve/day, Good Friday, Easter. 4th of July........:facepalm:

    Very small group rolled in today and it'll be about 2 more hours of letting folks know they should've handled their business earlier in the week. Simple pleasures, then wine, vomit, despair.

    That's life in the hospitality industry - if you're not here on Sunday, don't come in on Monday ....

    Doesn't bother me. Just a day.
