So much for an easy shift

Another decent day to wind down the week at my main job. This really has been a very easy work cycle, I’m hoping that the one that will be starting a week from Monday will be easy too. We’ll see.

It was good that the start of my day was easy, because I had a long shift at the Major Home Improvement Retailer, 4:30 to 10.  It looked at first as if it would be an easy shift, as heavy rains kept most customers away and there were several other people working in the Garden department. Of course this state of affairs didn’t last. Around 7, the worst of the rains having passed (and the temperature having plummeted), the manager on duty decided that me and a couple other workers had to disassemble these now-empty temporary plant racks, consisting of boards laid atop cement blocks. Lots of heavy 10″ x 12′ boards and heavy cement blocks. I won’t quite say it was backbreaking, but it sure wasn’t easy. I was very thankful that the temperature had fallen!
