Having to choose

Today was supposed to be a very long day for me.  From 8 until 3:30 at my regular job, then from 4 to 9 at the Major Home Improvement Retailer.  It would be hectic, especially since the location of the first worksite, near Exit 57, would require a bit of hurrying to make it to the second job in time.

Except it wasn’t a long day at all.  I knew that there was no way I could have made it through both jobs with the still-lingering effects of the flu.  It would be necessary to choose one or the other.  I decided to call in for the regular job, and go to the second job at the Major Home Improvement Retailer.  It wasn’t a hard choice, as I’ve been at the first job much longer.

As things turned out, it was a very very good thing that I was not completely worn down at the evening job, as I had to complete a complicated assignment while being timed, sort of a “final exam” at the end of my regular training.  I did well, which might not have been the case had I gotten to that job after working eight hours at the first job.  So, it all worked out.
