when I feel that only physical therapy will put me back together again. And this is one of them. I pretty much hurt everywhere except my arms. I even have a muscle spasm going in my upper back across my right shoulder blade. That's pretty bad because I am right handed. The bottom half hurts all the way up and, to top it off, I have a headache.
Today was a tough day at the store. Primarily because of the computer system. I went to lunch and came back to find that the debit part of the system was just NOT working. As customers approached my register I told them we had problems and I could only check them out using a credit card or cash. One guy got mad and stomped off, swearing and throwing (literally) down his stuff. Everyone else just rolled with it.
Another couple came up to the register. They had an item that rang up at $149. However, they said it was marked down to $139 on the shelf. I called to confirm and they were right. They argued back and forth about the best way to handle it. In the meantime, for reasons unknown to sane people, she stuck her credit card into the "chip" slot. The system read her card and as far as the system was concerned, it was a done deal. Once payment is initiated, I am helpless. I suggested they could go right on over to customer service and they'd be able to give them a credit. No, they didn't want to do that. I called the capo over and the woman got snotty with her telling her she didn't know her own system. I was pretty proud of the capo when she very calmly but pointedly told the lady "It IS MY system, and I DO know it". She finally convinced the woman there was no other way to deal with it. We listened to a load of caca but finally the woman went over to customer service to get her credit. So much fuss over $10............
So, let's sum it up: I could barely move my right arm without making strange strangled shouting noises and I had some cranky customers.
It was COLD today. It rained off and on all day and the wind was blowing at 26mph. At 9 something when I went out to take my break, we were actually getting tiny little pieces of hail. I was sitting them hit the hood of the van and bounce...........
It's hard to decide if I'm actually going to accomplish anything tonight. I'd like to, but it's going to be a challenge to push through all the aches and pains.
But, first, I think I might go get a nap. I am exhausted. I think I will take a muscle relaxer and see if it will help this mess in my upper back.
