My assistant manager gave her two weeks' notice today.
Classes start in four weeks.
No way I'm getting a replacement in time. I'm going to be working open-to-close all the way through Rush, which'll take us into September. I'm actually scheduled for 57 hours the week before classes start.
And if that wasn't enough, my DVR appears to have coughed up a hard-drive and died. Thankfully, I just rent it... I think. But I lost all the movies and stuff I'd recorded. Like the entirety of Firefly in HD. Don't let nobody tell you different, "Our Mrs Reynolds" is worth watching in HD. Oh yes, yes it surely is.
I'm already there, I think.
I curse out loud in commiseration. Unfortunately, I can't do more.

Get yourself a series 3* TiVo and hack it. Then you can download anything you can record (not to mention upgrading to 2TB drives so you can store every Good Eats episode with tons of space left over).
No suggestion about your assistant manager though
* TiVo Series 3 or TiVo HD.

(Also, the DVD recorder, even though it was made by a different manufacturer than my previous one, apparently used a variant of the same software, which is horrible as a player. For example, A-B repeat must be selected from a menu, each time, which takes three or four button presses, AND can not be set unless the player is PLAYING. No pausing and advancing to just the right frame.)

Maybe you can get a temp assistant manager? Maybe alums of your bookstore can come and do a tryout?
Maybe you've already thought of all these things....

Actually, I didn't get comp days when I was hourly, come to think of it.
