These past few days have been extremely hectic. Well, not really, but still. I've had to work more than I normally do. I'm always on the closing shift so I usually work 5pm-9pm Mon-Fri. Yesterday and today, I had full shifts and it was horrible! I've been spoiled with my four hour shifts that working 8 hour shifts are pure torture. Last night, I went in at 4:30pm and when I walked in the door, my manager managed to track me down to ask if I would mind staying until midnight to help straighten out the clothes section of the store. Me being the person who can't say no to anyone, agreed and it was hell. Not really, I just don't like working so late, I honestly don't know how I did it when I worked in restaurants during the closing shift and had to work until 2am or later. Like I said, I've been spoiled!
Today wasn't as bad though, I went in at 1:30pm and basically just walked around the store, helping people here and there or just talking to coworkers. After 4:30, I was asked by a manager to help package cookies in the bakery and it was fun. Time went by so much faster than it would have normally and the next thing I know, it was already 6pm! Time really flew by, I had been thinking only half an hour had passed but nope, an hour and a half had. I actually had fun working there and talking to the lady that normally works bakery. Today goes to show that I don't know everyone who works there. She had already been working at that store for over nine years but I saw her for the first time about a month ago! I think the biggest thing out of working in bakery is that even though I was packaging cookies, I didn't eat a single one! Even though I was tempted. Yay for me.
I gotta be back tomorrow at 11am and hopefully, I get asked to help out in bakery again. Or if I don't, I'll just ask if they need help. I like it there.
