Some variety is better than no variety
My work at the Major Home Improvement Retailer these three days did not involve anything remotely approaching variety. While I worked slightly different hours each day, 5:30 to 9:30, 4:30 to 11 and 5:15 to 9:15 respectively, the work was pretty much the same. Help customers, reshelve returns, pack out freight. It wasn’t that the work was bad, and except for Tuesday the shifts went by quickly, it’s just that there was quite a sense of deja vu. While I’m mostly a creature of habit I do appreciate some variety.
Fortunately, things were a bit different at my regular job. Monday was an ordinary day, but I worked on a special project the other two days. It wasn’t the sort of thing I’d ever done before. While both days were fairly hectic, I was glad to have the chance to do something different.
