We finally got our first snow storm of the winter this past Tuesday. But, at Steve’s there is no such thing as a Snow Day! Monday night right before the snow started and we all went home ST (Owner) comes in with his Toyota with a plow attached to the front. Talk about being prepared. On top of that Gabe (manager) asked me to come in early Tuesday morning. This meant I would be driving in the beginning of the storm but, on the bright side it meant I would be going home early when everything was over. Plus it let me try out my new “all-wheel drive SantaFe”. TOO EXCITING!
So Tuesday I woke up got to work at 7am to open and it was cold, wet and dark three things that aren’t meant to be mixed together. Me, being the genius that I am decided to wear my Uggs since they are considered winter boots but I should have worn rain boots because, every time I walked outside to get a car’s information I could feel the slushy snow go through my boots and my socks would get wet and I could feel my toes curl up and freeze. The whole day was pretty much like that because, even though no one should be driving in those weather conditions everyone decided to get their cars fixed and looked at.
These guys see snow and get super excited 8 out of the 10 times I would step out of the office I got a snow ball beamed at me. As much as I love being treated as one of the guys sometimes I hoped they would see me as a girl and wouldn’t beam things at me. Because, those snow balls are no joke. I have war wounds on my arm, back and neck. There was Christmas music playing like as if it was Christmas day! These guys are crazy I say it all the time that I’m the only normal person that works here and if I’m right about that, that’s scary. But with the snow storm, the mood went from Christmas to “Ugh, it’s Tuesday” But thankfully, I got to go home.
