At our homeschool co-op, I have two very part time jobs. The school is only open two days a week, and I work while my kids take classes. For one job, I teach a fine arts class. The other, I am a lunch lady.
Not your average lunch lady, because it's just me, and I don't really make the food, just serve it and handle data entry and such. With my restaurant background, it is a super easy job on most days. The kids at school order their lunches a day in advance, then the main kitchen from the district sends over the completed orders for me to handle from there.
On average, there about 20-25 lunches ordered for each day, but it always changes depending upon who ordered. Today was business as usual until I noticed a bunch of the orders were kids that didn't even attend campus classes, or at least were on campus, but never ordered. With such a small group, I know everyone and who usually orders what.
Turns out, some wiseguy took it upon himself to order a bunch of lunches on the sign-up sheet for lots of other people. Like 15 extra people who weren't even there. Leaving me a tray full of assorted sandwiches and like 38 leftover milks...
He wasn't a very smart criminal. You know the people that rob coffee stands, then drop their wallet? Then come back for it? It was like that. For one, he said "Wow. Lots of food today" when he picked up his order from me. Odd for a kid that normally doesn't even utter 'thank you'. Error two was that he pulled the prank again for today's new sign ups, using all the same pen as what he marked in for himself. Genius. :) I should not be a lunch lady, I should be a detective!!
