When I come in for the night shift, I do a cursory check to make sure we have everything we need for the night. Dressings, puddings, bread, etc etc.
However, it never fails that the one thing I forgot to check, didn't think to look for, or just underestimated is the thing that I (always me!) need. Last night it happened three times, and I thought I was going to slap everyone in the place. Need strawberry ice cream? It was left empty. Mint chocolate chip? Also not replaced. Coleslaw? Empty and no one put a back-up in the walk-in.
I really came up with some new bad words, as I was cursing a blue streak. So, I guess that's a good thing.
