My last day at this job is Friday. I've been here for 4 years. I don't do much. To prove that, they've asked me to make a list of the stuff I do, so the next person with this job knows who to contact for vendors, shipping, supplies, and other crap. I call it:The Most Fun You Can Have At The Front Desk While Still Wearing Pants
It hasn't made it past the boss's desk yet, so I don't know how long the title will stay up there at the top of the 12 page document.
What's that? You'd like to know what it says? Well my friends, here is a sample:
PRETTY FUCKING EXCITING, ISN'T IT????
KITCHEN ACTION FUN TIME
So much fun to have in the kitchen!
There are pre-packaged containers for the coffee maker. One package = one pot of coffee.
Fill the coffee pot with water somewhere between the 10 and 12 cup indicator lines. Pour the water into the top of the coffee maker in the back-right corner (youâ€™ll see numbers mirroring the cup indicator inside). Place the coffee pack into the bucket. (If you are using loose grounds, you can use either a paper filter or the gold plastic filter, but you donâ€™t have to use both at the same time.) Make sure the lid is on the pot and place it on the burner. Make sure the dial is turned to BREW. Flip the switch to ON, and wait. The coffee brews slowly. It will beep a few times when itâ€™s finished. The burner will turn itself off after 4 hours, and will beep when it shuts off, too.
You can program the coffee maker to go off at a set time. This will be very handy for early morning shoots. Fill the coffee maker as described above. Turn the dial to PROGRAM. Set the time you want the brewer to turn on. Setting the coffee to turn on about 10 to 15 minutes before your call time will give the slow brewer enough of a running start so that you wonâ€™t have to wait too long for it to finish. After setting the time, turn the dial to AUTO ON and flick the switch to ON. The coffee maker will turn on at the programmed time and turn off 4 hours later.
The pot, lid, gold bucket, and the bucket under the gold bucket are all dishwasher safe.
Load the dishwasher throughout the week. Folks should be putting their dirty stuff in there already, but youâ€™ll find a few strays in the sink from time to time. On Friday at the end of the day do a sweep of the office for any cups, spoons, bowls, etc., that are still in the wild. Load up the machine. Pour the detergent in, close the door, and press NORMAL WASH.
You can do this as youâ€™re on the way out the door on Friday and leave it to run after youâ€™re gone. Monday morning, open up & unload the dishes.
There are no plants in the kitchen, but the watering bucket is there. There is a grey/white plastic jug under the sink. Fill it up with water and visit the plants in Frank and Davidâ€™s offices. You can do this once a week, generally on Fridays at the end of the day. Talk to David for more details.
Christ. They made me leave instructions on how to run the dishwasher. I really genuinely enjoy the people I work with. It's the work they make me do that has me running to the hills.
New job on Monday. More news to follow.
