Thursday was the last day of my week off from my regular job. I’m not counting Friday because I don’t work on Fridays. I know, it was still a day off, but somehow it didn’t seem right to include it. Anyway, I spent most of the day on Thursday taking care of personal business, before going into the Major Home Improvement Retailer for a 7pm to 11pm shift. It went by pretty quickly, helped along by the fact that I was really busy, and as I had no work the next day I didn’t mind staying until 11. As for Friday, it was a fairly leisurely day, nothing pressing to do. I did some back work at the gym, played too many games of Doodle Jump, and delved further into the Unresolved Mysteries Reddit. Fun, huh?
Short MHIR shifts were the theme on both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday was 2 to 6:30, and what with it being the day before Easter the garden department was, ahem, hopping. Plants were selling at a fast and furious pace. It was especially busy for me because many of the customers were obviously unfamiliar with buying plants and had many questions. I was mildly surprised to see that not everyone knows the difference between an annual and a perennial. The shift was over in a flash, and that evening we went out for a pre-Easter dinner. At a Pakistani restaurant, go figure.
Sunday was a 9:15 to 1:15 shift. I had thought it was going to be quiet, what with Easter and all, but it was at least moderately busy. Later on we had a pretty low-key holiday, getting a pizza – which, while hardly traditional, isn’t as strange as the previous day’s Pakistani meal.
