“Working at the Major Home Improvement Retailer” is a succinct way of describing this weekend. Granted, that’s not all I did, among other things we went to Bobby’s Burger Palace on Saturday evening, but working eight hours on Saturday and six on Sunday does tend to dominate ones experiences. Saturday’s shift was 8:30 to 5 and was mainly the normal customer service stuff. Sunday I worked 3 to 9, and concentrated on inventory preparation. For the last hour I got the decidedly unwelcome task of throwing trash into the compactor. It’s a hard, dirty task, especially since much of the trash consists not of trash bags but of debris: warped lumber, damaged drywall, broken cement blocks, you name it. People take turns on trash duty, so at least I’ve done my share for a while.
