Monday, December 21 – Tuesday, December 22

The never-ending shift

Monday marked the start of the second of three weeks off from my main job, and in keeping with that theme it was pretty much of a day off from everything. Other than a few errands I did very little of consequence for most of the day. In the early evening I went to the gym for some back work, mainly cable rows with some supplementary work on machines. Not a top-performing session but a decent one nevertheless.

Tuesday was a workday at the Major Home Improvement Retailer, a somewhat unusual 2pm to 10pm shift. It also happened to be an utterly endless shift. The MHIR is not the sort of retailer that gets much last-minute Christmas shopping, yet despite it being quiet there were four people on duty in garden. For at least the first five hours of the shift I had little to do except wander the aisles and straighten up things on the shelves. Thrilling! Time went so slowly it seemed to be running backwards. I was insanely grateful when some freight was ready for packout around 7 and I actually had something to do.
