Deck The Halls With Mismanagement

| Working | December 27, 2014

(The holidays are fast approaching.)

Manager: “Are you working tomorrow?”

Me: “Yeah, why?”

Manager: “Because tomorrow, [Owner’s Wife] wants us to put up Christmas decorations.”

Me: *groan* “Can’t I just clean something instead?”

Manager: “I don’t have anything that needs cleaning… Actually, I do, but she wants us to do this.”

Me: “But my mom always says you should clean first before putting up Christmas decorations.”

Manager: “That’s because your mother actually makes sense. This is [Owner’s Wife] we’re talking about. If your house was on fire, your mother would probably make you get outside. If the theater was on fire, [Owner’s Wife] would probably make you clean something.”

(Sadly, I couldn’t argue with that.)
