It’s been a while, but I’ve been busy.
For the last two weeks or so, I’ve been working two jobs, going between Costco and Subway. Costco’s been a lot of fun and I’ve enjoyed it. Subway, on the other hand, not so much.
But now that’s all over. Today was my official last day at Subway. I am done with making sandwiches.
I’ll admit it’s a little bittersweet: I will miss some of the people who worked there. But as for the job itself, I’m not at all upset. The work wasn’t difficult but the hours were long and the pay was terrible. I lost count of how many times I was abandoned by my coworkers on busy days or forced to stay and close the place when someone couldn’t or wouldn’t show. I lost count of the petty feuds that arose between some of my coworkers who, for whatever reason, simply couldn’t stand each other. I lost count of the days I came home with my back sore and feet aching, because I had been standing for 11 hours straight.
All of that, I will not miss. The days spent finishing prep while joking around, I will. But I’ll happily leave that behind for better things.
I wish my coworkers well. I also hope that they can find something a lot better than Subway. They deserve it.
