Work is getting funnier. Today my supervisor, Sherry, was showing me a new validation type - Currency. (As of today, I'm at full validation, which meant I picked up a few minor new validation types just today.) This was an easy one - even easier than Date or Microline or Ammount.
Sherry: "See, now you could just push enter, and it would be validated as Canadian, but you won't get any keystrokes."
William: "I won't get any keystokes?"
Sherry: "No. But look, see, if you're in a Canadian batch, you can just look to make sure that it's a Canadian bank and that 'U.S. Funds' isn't typed near the ammount. Then key a '1.' If you're in a U.S. batch, you'll be keying '2.' See, you can push 'Enter,' and it will go through as Canadian." (She pushes 'Enter.')
William (mock critical): "You just cost me a keystroke!"
Sherry (mock peeved): "Okay, I'm just going to go home right now!"
We also hit rock bottom for the second day in a row. It didn't affect me much, except that I had no items the last five minutes of yesterday, nor the last minute of today. This is a very rare occurrence. Sherry says it's only happened twice since she's been there. I imagine the people who feed the cheques and stubs and skirts into the scanners are probably getting yelled at right now.
"Sherry, it's 8:29, and I have no items left."
"Okay, I think you can just log out and go home!"
So tomorrow's Friday Day! I'll be going to bed at 6:00 tonight; it's going to be a long weekend.
By the way, guys, I'm in the IMDB now. Coolness.
