Good morning. This post was not in my original plans, but I wanted to say thanks to our customers and to get this down while the numbers and timeline are still fresh in my head. This is graduation weekend at Texas State University here in San Marcos, America, and yesterday was the first day of ceremonies. Last night we had a crowd of about 100 people up at the Veranda at 11:30 when the skies broke loose. Our customers were instructed to clear the roof due to the torrential rain, and 100 people came down the stairs without ANY problems. For about the next 45 minutes I hustled around between Harper's and Slackers, and I was informed at about 12:15 that the Veranda would be reopening. By 12:40 we had gone from 0 to 200 customers (capacity) on the roof, and again, without ANY problems. My friend Paige also gets a shoutout here because when I reestablished my position in the hallway, she brought me a cup of Coke and a cup of water which got me through the rest of the night. I also had other customers who offered to bring me something to drink (which is a common occurrence), and I thank you as well. For those of you who are celebrating the end of the spring semester and the graduation ceremonies, keep doing so responsibly and thank you for helping last night to run so smoothly under unusual circumstances. Have a great weekend everyone!
Coach, thank you for being nice enough to thank others.ReplyDelete
I'll have that drink for you since you can't do it yourself!
It was pretty impressive Serge, all of those people moving around without any problems considering the NASTY weather. Our owner called to let us know that bad weather was expected around 11:30, and BAM!!!, that's when it hit... And you need to have a drink - you have a great reason to celebrate! :)Delete
30,009 page views! You are zooming up, my friend, zooming up.ReplyDelete
I'm sure that has NOTHING TO DO with readers enjoying the tales of my fantasy teams going down in flames, again... :PDelete
one of the main reasons I read is to hear you regale tales of your fantasy teams sucking :)Delete
It's a shame that I'm not in Vegas so that could include tales of my poker game and sports betting sucking (the perfect trifecta)... ;)Delete
