The company Odysseus and TCA work for is run by brainless twunts. Seriously. Instead of hiring enough people to cover when one quits (or gets fired for selling alcohol to minors...or gets hospitalized for a suicide attempt), they hire just enough people to cover all shifts in most positions...if absolutely nothing goes wrong.
And corporate rations cleaning supplies. Their store has to beg for more from the warehouse, and when they arrive, they call everyone in for a three-hour "meeting," where they put everybody to work cleaning...and have to pay for extra hours of work.
So, Odysseus's second Monday where he didn't have to get up to go to class, he had to get up an hour earlier, and go clean a store that could be kept clean if corporate were run by people with as much sense as congress.
