Two of the delivery drivers at the cannabis dispensary called on Friday because they could not come to work.
Both of the guys ended up getting the flu.
The last time they worked, both of the guys had a sore throat and a light cough. I was afraid that they would get sick but I hope and pray that they would not call out on the same night. I already had the schedule made, so I couldn’t move anyone around quickly enough when they called to tell me that they were too sick to come to work. I think it’s kind of strange that both guys ended up with the flu after Jack’s girlfriend was sick. I might look into that further if it was my girlfriend and my best friend. Deliveries had to be canceled on Friday night, because one driver was not going to get the job done. There was no reason to overwhelm a single driver trying to get the job of three people done at once. It seems more likely that a better idea was simply to offer only in-store pickup and curbside delivery services. The line was out the door when we had to cancel delivery services. Part of the reason was likely due to the sale. Because we could not offer delivery services last night, we were authorized to offer each customer a free pre-roll with their purchase. The house pre-rolls are normally $16 each and the customers received them for free. The store was probably busier than any other night that I can remember and we still managed to clear a significant amount of money despite not being able to offer marijuana delivery services on that particular evening.
