What was your blunder today?
Permalink   


Well let's see:

Earlier this week, was the last UC for nights above 18 and was doing trash. Get the spare key to open the compactor, disarm the compactor alarm (why we have two alarms if one isn't even tied to the system??? Stupid!!!) and I open the door, only to find out a few seconds later I hear the store keypad in alarm. Quickly go to a store phone nearby and page for MOD, but they don't show, so I have to call them on their portable directly. Oh that was fun! Not! The one freaking time I forget to check the panel before I open the door.

I accidentally punched out for my shift rather than punching in from my break. Apparently I got excited and pushed the button too soon.

 I've done that a few times. Especially when I've been really tired to not be paying attention. Hence, I try and get my break in before I get THAT tired. Since they took away the little papers you could fill out, if you did and accidental punch. Not 100% sure why they did it though.

Wasn't quite a full blunder on my end of things, but will be if they can't get all the information we need and enough man power to complete it in time. But yea, long story short a customer calls in for a lunch box order for 205 students that are taking a field trip out of state. I'm not a newbie by any means, but I have NEVER taken an order for ANYTHING of that size and magnitude before. So naturally I'm trying to go from my DH, deli back up managers, and even folks that have more experience with doing trains trying to figure out answers on things. Needless to say the only help I got from my DH was to take the order and he would do the delivery himself. And also that it would be a separate cost for bottled water from Grocery. But in between doing all this running around and trying to figure things out, the dude was like just tell me who I can ask for tomorrow as he has to figure out how many kids have special eating needs as well. Which is kind of a relief in a way as I was feeling kind of overwhelmed with not having any real particulars for this or that while on the phone.

But yea, the real blunder is going to be, when this dude calls back, and someone picks up and we STILL are trying to figure out prices for everything for him. Most especially if/when our more senior deli back up is on a day off. As I swear she is about the only back up, I've seen that is truly willing to run around the store checking and cross-checking this, that, and the other. To make sure what the prices are, where the customer will need to go to get the water, check with bakery on them ordering in enough of a particular bread that day. What can be swapped out to make the boxes more fitting to the special needs kids. I mean she truly goes above and beyond when it comes to doing stuff like that. But other peeps are like, "um yea, we'll figure that out when we get to it...." But dude, it's due for next Tuesday and I'm wigged out I'll get the brunt of any BS if something isn't going right or as it should, since I initially picked up and STARTED(did not fully complete) the order for the guy. Actually had my nerves on edge for a few hours well after the call ended.

That my Lead walked away from me when I wanted to talk to her. She took the time to talk to another team member, but completely brushed me off. I'm her back-up and she walked away.

 That's beyond rude. Has that happened before? Was she just distracted with something else and didn't see you?

 Update:

The RIGHT deli back up manager was back on today and she totally got all the info we needed gathered together. Even got management involved. So now my ass is out of the sling if something goes wrong. :D

Yes, it has happened before. No, she wasn't distracted and yes, she seen me and heard me.

 Then I stick with that was rude on the other person's part. And not a blunder on yours' at all. As it sounds like she has an attitude problem.
