It is the scene of carnage that makes a company slave shine.
“I’ve been waiting for you for a while, Nihama-kun. This is a real emergency.”
We were greeted by Kazamihara, a girl with glasses who was a member of the festival committee, as we headed to the classroom immediately after receiving an SOS from Fumihashi that the class stall was in trouble.
“Kazamihara-san, what the hell is going on? Fumihashi-san’s pretty freaked out, and we haven’t been able to figure out what’s going on yet. ……”
“In a nutshell, we’re on the verge of a site collapse.”
The first thing she said to me with a cool face was a traumatic word from my previous life.
There are many definitions of the word, but generally speaking, it refers to the worst outcome when the balance between the work and the processing speed is lost, and the work collapses.
“The first factor is the increase in the number of customers, with a flood of male customers coming to the store because they saw a pretty girl advertising. To be honest, I underestimated the effect of the pretty girl commercials.”
”I see. …… So the fact that Shijoin-san walked around with a placard attracted more male customers than expected? I’m sure you’ve got a lot of people who can handle that kind of thing. …”
“The second factor is the lack of …… shift members. It’s almost the last shift of the day, and three of the seven members are unavailable.”
“Eh, yeah! How can that happen?”
Shijoin-san says, looking taken aback.
“It was a …… disaster, there were some takoyaki that was undercooked and some of the boys, including three of the people on the last shift, fooled around and ate them. …… Then they all got sick to their stomachs and have since been stucked in the toilet .”
“Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah !!!”
It’s only natural that eating raw flour would give you a stomach ache!
Oh shit, I was blindsided by the power of high school students at the planetarium, but then I remembered that it’s also the creatures called high school students that can do such stupid things so easily. ……!
“In other words, if the current shift members finish their work in a few minutes, the four of us who will be taking their place, me, Nihama-kun, Shijoin-san, and Fumihashi-san,will have to handle a large number of customers.”
The people who had been preparing up to this point were in a panic when they realized the weight of only having a team of four.
Selling meal tickets, managing orders, cooking, serving food, pouring drinks, and packing take-out, there were not enough people to handle such a wide range of tasks.
“Well, you can ask the current shift members to extend their shifts, or you can call in people who are on other breaks. ……”
“That’s the hard part. …… All of our classmates whose cell numbers I have are scheduled for club activities, outings with friends, dates with their girlfriends, or something. All of the members of the current shift have plans, too.”
Kazamihara, who was in charge of managing each person’s schedule, sighed at the poor timing.
Well, at an event like a cultural festival, it’s unlikely that anyone will be free without any plans.
The only one I can call is Ginji. …… I’m pretty sure he’s also at a club event at this time.
“There are two options. We can ignore their individual business and call them on their cell phones,……, or the four of us can work together to run the site. The latter will probably slow down the speed of customer service, though.
I didn’t want to question the girls in front of me about their decision.
This was something that I had proposed and established, and it seemed to me that I should be the one to decide.
(Calling out …… to everyone who is having a good time ……)
I suddenly remembered a precious day off in my previous life.
The time when the company called me to go back to work cruelly shattered my faint elation to catch up on my backlog of anime, unpack my pile of games, or even go out for a nice meal. That experience left a scar in my heart that will never heal.
(Everyone has their own cultural festival plans. For example, if there had been a heartless caller at the time I was with Shijoin earlier, …… everything would have been ruined. I don’t want to do something that would ruin such a precious time of their youth.)
However, if the four of us were to do work as is, we would not be able to serve the large number of visitors fast enough, and our festival would end in frustration and disappointment.
That’s no good.
If that happened, Shijoin-san’s smile would be ruined.
It would be absolutely unacceptable.
Then, the answer is simple.
“I won’t call out to anyone, and I don’t have enough time to go looking for a classmate who’s not busy. That’s why it will be just the four of us, but we won’t slow down the service either.”
” Eh, what? You can’t do that, Nihama-kun! I’ve been practicing and I know, but missing three people out isn’t something we can afford!”
The complaint from Fumihashi is a legitimate one.
However, no matter what the job is, if you don’t have the right people, you can’t run the place.
“I want Kazamihara-san to sell the meal tickets and manage the orders, Shijoin-san and Fumihashi-san to serve the food and pour out the drinks. I want the customers to dispose of the dishes by themselves. Takeout will be one of the orders, and Shijoin-san will be in charge of putting the food in packaged containers instead of plates.”
“Yes, yes, I understand! But what about cooking the …. takoyaki?
” Well, I’ll take care of all the cooking. Just give me all the orders.”
“…… Are you serious? You need three people to keep up with it.”
That’s right, if there was only one type of takoyaki on the menu, but there are a total of six types, seven if you include …… the big wasabi jackpot, so until now, three people have been running the order using three takoyaki machines brought from each household.
“Yeah, I’m dead serious. I don’t want to be the last person in the class who hurts the performance we’ve done so far. Besides–“
Unknowingly, I was faintly smiling.
This is my domain. The keyboard and mouse have been replaced with takoyaki picks, but nothing has essentially changed.
“I’m used to this kind of situation, you know.”
