One thing about my work schedule is that “weekend” is a largely meaningless concept. While I have Fridays off from both jobs, Saturdays and Sundays are ordinary workdays at the Major Home Improvement Retailer. Still, “largely” meaningless is not quite the same as “completely” meanigless. I don’t work my regular job either day, and at the MHIR the pace of work is rather different than on a weekday evening. There’s no freight to pack out and usually no special cleaning or moving projects. Mostly it’s just dealing with customers.
These three days.pretty much fit the pattern. I didn’t do too much on Friday, just savored the day off, and my weekend shifts (1 to 8:30 and 2 to 8) were quite busy with customers. At 8 on Sunday was the semiannual store meeting, which lasted until about 9:45. It wasn’t too bad staying the extra time as there was food and games, and I got my second “meritorious service” award. And yes, everyone got paid for their time.
