I thought you guys was just a phrase as that is what we said on the east coast, anyway, I do not mind the reports but I like it better when I can do them the next day.
Fun thread. One option for avoiding involved, lengthy, or difficult reports is to do app shops. You would have to decide for yourself if this quick & easy reporting method is right for you. For some people, it is a wonderful way to accomplish many assignments sequentially because (as long as connectivity is good) the report is finished when the shopper leaves the location or very shortly thereafter. There is no lag time or down time for taking notes or rummaging around in the memory for missed or forgotten details. Would it be good to try a few app shops and mix it up with your other shops that have typical reports? .
Usually that's Jackie, unless she is a manly kind of woman. But it's certainly possible.
I do restaurant for lunch alone 70% of the time, and it doesn't bother me at all. When dining with a friend, yes, I want to continue the fun and resent having to do a report, but think about having saved the money, then I put my big girl pants on and do the job. I usually find a friend that will drive and pay the tip and doesn't complain, so, I get something out of it. When I have to have a drink, I really would rather not do a report...but, I want to get paid, so it's never an issue.
