I first stocked canned sodas. I thought it would be nice to get them out of the way first. However, I had a lot of people peering in the empty snack machines, so I won't do that again. Then I had a guy yell at me about the coffee machine. I told him I would get it, but I couldn't get it right now, and gave him his money back.
The machine goes through a lot of coffee. People really like it because I use a very high quality dark roast coffee for the machine. I think it is important to provide a good product.
If I drank coffee, I would drink it.
I finally finished sodas. Now I had to mash up about 20 cases worth of packaging. That's where I miss Ron at work. I don't mind stocking the soda, getting the soda, getting the merchandise, etc. I do mind mashing up all that packaging for the recycle!
Now onto snacks. I stocked the chips, then did candy and cookies. Before I left, I did pastry.
Somewhere between candy and cookies, the repairman came. He had the part we needed. He took about 20 minutes installing it and got it all done. I witnessed it working before he left. Good.
He says it might need a board, but the board is only about $20 (he has to order it). The bill wasn't too bad, $250. The machine makes a lot of money so it is worth it.
I'm going to need some more chips, but not Lays or Cheetos. I always need hot chips.
I noticed hot chips in the vending machine at the rehab center. I found that very interesting.
Ron called a couple of times. I enjoyed talking to him.
I crowed about his progress to the other vendors. They kept asking in a "How bad is it?" fashion and I kept answering with all of his progress. "He can do this, they took the catheter out..."
He is doing really well.
After the repairman left I finished candy and pastries. Pastries are a little tedious because I have to write the sell by date on a label, then tag the pastry, then stock it. Probably my least favorite after mashing up soda packaging.
I did have it looking good, though, alternating rows of vanilla and chocolate cupcakes, another machine stocked with honeybuns. They love honeybuns, which have a whopping 500-600 calories. It's certainly filling.
I had a pregnant, temporary, worker screaming at me for honeybuns one day "I need some bread!" I was rather alarmed and glad I had them on hand.
OOops, I just remembered I forgot to take the jammed $1 out of the food vendor. I will have a lot of sandwiches on Monday as a result.
All done, I called my ride and went home. I took a nap. I got up and tried to find the sales tax information on Ron's computer, but it isn't there and the mouse doesn't work very well. He was "in a class" and couldn't talk much but we at least figured out he needs to do the form.
That done, I did some housework. At least I managed to get the nap. I was sleeping pretty good.
I noticed my hair has gotten really gray lately. I will try to get a photo "made" so you can decide for yourself. I am still pretty unclear on how to transfer images from my phone to my computer.
I will be visiting Ron tonight, after rush hour traffic.
Torbie is mugging me for treats, so I'm going to take care of her and make myself a sandwich.
