This is a terrible shot, but I wanted to bid farewell to the “reg.” On Monday around 1PM we went live on our new Dinerware POS. The transition could have gone a little smoother if the reg hadn’t caught wind of his replacement about a week ago and started acting out. Every morning starting from last Wednesday on there was a different problem that prevented us from signing into the machine and making transactions. A puzzle the managers had to deal with every morning at 8 am—after desperate calls from the opening staff. We were so close! We couldn’t pay Mike, the repairman to come out with 3 days left on it! Somehow we made it work without him.
On Sunday, after those daily tantrums, it decided it wasn’t going to work with the cover on anymore.
By Monday it was a sad sight. The reg lost his fight. Sorry, reg.
