I feel so incompetent.
So it's Saturday, just another 8.5 hour shift just like any other day. I work doing the same routine stuff I do everyday. Then around 7:45 my manager says that she needs to run for some petroleum jelly to lube the ice cream machine, so I jokingly shout that I'd do it (I kinda did wanna do it so I wouldn't be working) so she said fine; note that we have always used the same lube that looked like it was some hardcore specialized jelly and I had to get that kind. She gave me $20 and out I went. I went to Walgreens and didn't find it. I went to Home Depot and didn't find it. I went to Walmart and didn't find it. So I called the store and my boss picks up, I'm like, shit.... because I was out for an hour and he's a penny pincher. I told him I couldn't find the lube that we used and he said that I was looking for the wrong thing -____-. He said just ordinary Vaseline petroleum jelly that you used on yourself or whatever and he said to get the one in the tube. So I grab the ones in the tube and I drive back to work. Halfway there I look at it and ITS THE WRONG KIND!!! It's petroleum jelly cream so I U-turn into Walgreens because I had just passed it and spent my own money to buy the one in the plastic container. I then floor it back to work because it's 15 mins past our closing time and I had to stop by another franchised location to drop off the jelly for them too (I had to get 1 for my work and another one for anther location). So I now have 2 tubes of petroleum jelly cream... So that was my day.
