Tuesday- So I get to the restaurant and after about an hour i am greeted by a bald headed man with one of those shiny badges that you see all those police officer guys wearing. He proceeds to tell me that I need to pay him $8K for back sales taxes. Apparently the Department of Revenue doesn't think to highly of you if you don't give them their money. Long story short it doesn't fall on me but I did learn that even after bankruptcy you are still responsible for owed sales tax.
Wednesday- get to the restaurant about 9 am and start tearing down the counter that they used to serve pizza at. At about 11 am greeted by a nice blonde haired woman in a blue suit. Unfortunately she to has one of those shinny badge on as well. Not worry though she just wanted some lunch.
Thursday- Ok need to finish up on some of the projects i started.
1st I need an office to keep computer and files and the such safe. Check
2nd I need to get the dish pit and back hallway cleaned. Check
3rd Sweep kitchen floors so they can be mopped. Check
4th Remove all Direct TV boxes and remotes. Me doing the goodonya thing I decide to call Direct TV and see if they want me to mail them back to them. Phone Call: D; press 1 if your requesting new service, 2 if your a current customer. Me; 0#, D I am sorry i didn't understand please enter your account number followed by the pound sign, Me; 0#, D I am sorry i didn't understand please enter your account number followed by the pound sign. so this goes on for about 15 minutes until I somehow get a hold of a person and yup you guessed it just throw them away. Really brand new boxes and remotes just toss. OK whatever.
Friday- After going through boxes and drawers from previous owner I have come to the conclusion they were hoarders. A drawer full of used ink cartridges, bags marked 1.00 with pennies in them, I mean really who the heck saves pennies in $1.00 bags, make a coin jar and take it to the grocery store at put it in one of those coin machines, and clipboards I mean like 25+ clipboards, different shapes, sizes, colors, however they all looked brand new, maybe he kept the clipboards organized so that they would get in the way of all the other stuff just randomly placed around the restaurant.
Saturday- Time to break down some walls! Natasha, Eric and Jaime all helped out demoing the old service counter
