This weekend, as you can see above, looks busy. And I think I'm coming down with something. Bleh.
I'll be glad when this week's over. The first week of the semester is always the worst. Student employees not showing up for shifts, changing their class schedules, forgetting all they knew from last semester or the past few years they've worked for us, and not knowing what's changed since last they worked. Customers with all of their problems that have accumulated over the break, desperate to have their computers fixed or to get a loaner, despite the fact that the semester's barely begun. The faculty are stressed, the students are stressed, and it's hard to calm so many people down a day.
In a couple of weeks, things return to their nice normal pace. But right now, I'm handing out chill pills like they're party favors.
