Night Audit Wednesday June 1st, 2016

The good news is the internet is working. The bad news is it’s very slow. It’s just after 0:30. I’ll check back in on it after 2:00. I figure everyone in the hotel is online trying to stream Netflix. I’m still on my first cup of coffee and am just now getting started. The shift before me didn’t finish all of their duties so I had to wrap that up first. However, I am by myself all night so I should be more productive. If not, I only have myself to blame. I’ll shoot for 2,500 words and/or three scenes. 0:42 – It has begun. I’m at 129 words, but I’m out of coffee and could use a cigarette. Time for a break. Then fury typing to hit my goal. 1:15 – 709 words, and I’m out of coffee again. I’m starting to get that coffee buzz. I keep finding […]

Night Audit Tuesday May 31st, 2016

Tonight is rough! Internet is out. Yeah!!! There is little I can do. The issue isn’t with out ISP, but with the internal hardware. I’m confident that I found the issue, but I can’t be 100% sure. I also don’t get paid to be our tech support so I’m not going to risk breaking anything further. The rain out here has been crazy the past week. With it being Memorial Day weekend, our guests had been in a bad mood since their weekend was ruined by weather. Now that we’re in our regular week, most of our guests are here on business. So now with the rain it’s caused tech problems, which means guests aren’t able to work online. I find the whole situation annoying on a personal level, because I’m addicted to the internet. Also I’m unable to get on blogger, and have to wait until I get home. […]

Night Audit Monday May 30th, 2016

Almost done with the first week at my new job. Not to undersell myself, but a monkey could easily do what I do. My job requires me to babysit the hotel. As the Night Auditor, I’m responsible for closing out the day and running reports. I also have to check in any guests that show up late. I usually see one or two people a night.  As for running the Night Audit reports. The first night took me almost an hour. Now I’m usually done in about five-teen minutes. Most of that is me taking a smoke break, and the system talking to the offsite server. On days that the breakfast attendant isn’t here I also have to make breakfast. That takes about forty-five minutes, and happens at the end of my shift.  I’m left with a minimum of five hours by myself with nothing to do. Thus, writing time!  Training […]
