there was one really great moment. okay, two. as one of the oldest (in terms of time worked not age) dealers put it, "your street cred is the bomb" which i take to mean i scare people. i like to have the rules followed so there's less chance of anyone getting in trouble at a later date. but i don't think i'm that scary. i think the rumors about me make me out to be worse than i am - not that i do anything to discourage this, of course, it makes my job easier.
so, okay, i know for a fact that the new security guy, jason, is scared of me. megan gets on the radio and asks him to come unlock the day cashier's tip box so she can cash out and go home. he comes on and asks if no is an option. i went on and said that it wasn't because i was still working. he was at the cage like a shot. *snickers* and i was still being polite to him.
the second one was when the night pit boss - who i HATE - asked who was in surveillance. i replied that it was me and his behavior changed. he started going by the book, calling things in promptly and behaving himself.
when my night shift guy showed up at midnight - yeah, so going to bed here - he asked if i could lie to everyone and say that he'd called in sick and i was working all night so they'd behave themselves. i'm kinda enjoying this now. it used to really bug me, but that was when i didn't know what people were saying about me. now i know and it just makes me laugh.
but the day still sucks yeggs.
