Had to clock in late because buses in Oxford seem incapable of running in the rain, and when I got there, there were signs up in the changing rooms saying "NO WATER - DON'T USE THE TOILETS".
So I wandered downstairs, where Jenny hands me a packet of antibacterial wipes and says "We can't use the taps... wash your hands with these!".
Okay, how strange. About ten minutes later, the Duty Manager runs over to the counter and says "You're going to have to shut the counter!". Jenny waves the antibacterial wipes at him too. "But we have wipes!"
Moments later, there is a tannoy announcement. "Due to problems with our water, we have been forced to shut our Delicatessen, Salad Bar and Meat and Fish counters." Customers seem to think this means "Quick! Run to the counters now before it's too late!" I suggest beating them back with spades, but Jenny is unimpressed. Instead, we covered everything up and sent them away.
Suddenly, there were about thirteen people with nothing to do. The Duty Manager ran back over and told us to go and help on Provisions, which we found insulting, because counter staff are Band 2, and obviously too well-qualified to help lowly Band 1 shelf-stackers.
Emma (who was so incredibly hyper it made me look sedate) and I managed to hide in the warehouse doing NO work whatsoever for about 45 minutes, before somebody gave us a cage and told us to get on with it. :P So we went and stacked vegetable samosas together for a while, then had a large pile of crates to put outside.
Outside was FUN. The Sainsbury's lorry had just arrived, so whilst the driver was inside the warehouse taking the load out, Emma and I tried to climb into the cab. Sadly it was locked, so we went and sat on the other side of the giant skip with our crates, wondering if anyone would notice if we stayed there all day.
Then we SCREAMED when Ryan appeared suddenly on the other side of the skip. Ryan refused to sit with us and do nothing, because he is more afraid of the Hell Troll than I am and thought we'd be...
