Some of the joys of owning your own business

Got a call from our manager today and found out he was in the hospital the night before. He is unable to work and the “assistant manager” can’t work any more than his scheduled hours. So, we end up having a couple of the non-managerial employees covering the store. They haven’t been trained on returns / exchanges and can’t close the STORE! Talk about having to kludge together a plan to make sure the store can still operate. Things like this make you want to close the doors and find some other employement. Then you think back to all the crap you had to put up with when you were in someone else’s employ and look at the current employment market and realize that it could be much worse.
