I have decided to terminate Mr. Hawaaian Shirt, should he surprise the hell out of me and actually show up for his shift this morning.
I was up most of the night wrestling with this decision. Just after my alarm went off, having achieved perhaps forty-five minutes of real sleep, I suddenly had a vision of this disaffected drug addict bursting through the doors of the restaurant with an assault rifle and taking out my plate glass windows, my espresso machine, me, and my six-months-pregnant little counter girl.
Of course, I know this will not happen. It is merely the deranged workings of a sleep-deprived mind.
A little positive energy sent in my direction would not be taken amiss...
