A Long Week

The last several days have been difficult, to say the very least. My job has taken a mental and physical toll on me, so much so that at several points during the last few days I have honestly thought of walking out the door and never returning. Friday was a prime example of this.

On Thursday, a day which I was only supposed to be in the building for eight hours, I was alone for nearly two hours before the rest of my co-workers arrived. During that two hours, I was insanely busy and not once had a moment to do anything other than serve customers. We were behind on prep, dishes, cleaning, you name it. Even worse? The phone kept ringing off and on as I scrambled to fill order after order. When my co-workers arrived, they took over up front and I was able to answer the phone.

It was Kent and he wanted to know if I could close that night. Oh and could I come in and close the next day as well?

Being an idiot, I said yes. Thursday wasn’t so horrible, as I had two people who could run the front and I could work in the back but Friday…

Friday was a nightmare. It was a rainy day and a local music festival had been rained out. So everyone had to come to the mall. And I was short a person, as it was only me and one of the newer girls until eight that night. And we were busy. Very busy. I didn’t stop serving customers until 8:35, which almost never happens on a weeknight.

I didn’t walk out of the building until 10:50. I was tired, pissed and extremely hungry, as I hadn’t even been able to get a meal break that day. I just wanted to walk out and never return to that building ever again.

Soon enough, that day will come. I just want to make it until then.

    There is a feeling of satisfaction in having endured some trying times before moving on to something better…

    Oh yeah, that is true. Some don’t enjoy the marketing that we’re doing right now but as I’ve said, “It could be worse.”
