And the Lunatic was a wallflower, so the Lunatic went to wait in the break room. And while the Lunatic was there, the Lunatic heard a nice rational support of Bush: Bush Senior did good things for immigrants from Mexico, so this guy supports Bush Junior.
I gently mentioned that I didn't think that Bush Junior was doing as good a job as his daddy.
The guy who looks like Evil Mick but isn't made the noise and said, "I don't think either of them did such a great job."
I whispered to him, "I was trying to be diplomatic." Heh.
And just as I was resignedly shuffling up to do the survey on beer, the Cute Chick Monitor came up and asked if she could pull me to monitor today -- the Trader Joe's Queen Monitor was out.
So I monitored.
There were people. There were a lot of people. There were a lot of people who needed just that little bit of extra help. Problem Child was a main feature of the day. I discussed Problem Child with the Cute Chick Monitor (who was the shift lead, and therefore it was Work Conversation, and not just idle gossip); she has noticed that Problem Child is a problem as well.
Stuff happened, and things. I learned new things about technicalities and what's a problem and what's not. Problem Child is doing very well at skirting the edges of what's acceptable, but he's still very problematic, and will very likely one of these days go over the line.
I was exhausted when I got home.
