Don't think I've mentioned it here yet but I was just recently hired at Five Guys. Gotta work at the downtown mall location tonight, 6 to close. Most of you probably don't know but in Charlotesville during the summer, every friday there's this concert thing held at the Cville pavilion called Fridays After Five. It's always suuuuuuper crowded, lots of families etc.

Basically, tonight is going to suck.

I feel your pain bro -- I'll be working 4:30- 2 am tonight  :|
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

I bailed from work at noon to have lunch with a friend who, befofre last friday, I hadn't seen in a dozen years.  Today, I left work so I could have beers wih lunch.

Now, on the train, five beers later, I learn that were having people over for beers tonight. 

Look for me in the "I'm Drizzunk" thead soon.

You have no idea how many of those jokes I've heard in the 3 days I've been working there...
Just two whiskies, officer.

I'm not sure if I followed this thread correctly, but what guys are saying is that Dave Thomas sold crack in inner-city DC in the mid-80's, right?

We used to do that all the time when I was a Manager at a Pizza Hut.  :smoke:

Hope everyone else is phonin' it in - the weekend is almost upon us.

I feel like crap today - beginnings of a cold creeping in. I have a 9am con-call in 5 minutes. After that, I may just go back to bed. How's that for phoning it in?

So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Today I hate:  Not getting to this thread until 11:32am

Ridiculous!

I'm gonna have to concentrate pretty hard this afternoon just to break even on phoning it in.
