The Greatest Fucking Genius of All Time

So I get to work today and quickly notice that the power went out last night. It must have gone out for a long time because the computer clock was all messed up. So after I log in to the computer, I adjust the clock so that it's correct and then start getting ready for the day. About a half an hour into the day, I am ringing up a customer and they want to use a credit card. So I swipe the card through and the ZON machine tries to dial out and it's failing. I find this odd, so I check to see if there is a dial tone and there is none on either phone line. This is really odd, so I go the bar next door and ask if their phones are working at all. Vanessa was there and told me that her phone was out as well. I felt like there was something going on here cause she seemed stressed, but she is pregant now and so i figured it was that. I came back to the store and called my manager on my cell to let her know what was going on.

Fast forward a couple hours. The phones are still out and there is rumors going around that the phones were cut by construction or something. My manager comes into the store now. We are both glad that we have cell phones else we wouldn't be able to contact anyone and let them know what was going on. My manager goes over to the bar next door and is talking to the owner over there. When she comes back she lets me know what was going on. Last night, the bar was robbed. Someone cut the phone lines of all the stores on our block so that the alarm wouldn't call the police and then broke into the bar and stolen the safe. They didn't just break into the safe, they stole it outright. The police think that a professional did the job because of all the preperation that went into it. Someone knew what they were doing, that's for sure. I feel really bad for the people over at the bar, but I'm really glad that it wasn't us that was hit. I so wouldn't want to deal with that shit.

So that's my big story for the day. Unsure of plans tonight yet.
