The long day

I have a hard time with being bored and sitting still. I already know this and have for years but it really hit me when I was at work from 7 a.m to 5 p.m. I had to get up super early, drink half an espresso, a full cup of coffee, get ready and drive to work before the sun was up. By the time I got in the store I was wondering if it would be rude to just fall asleep in my car and not walk in. I was pretty tired and I knew that the day was going to be long and full of boring events. So of course I did my best and got into work. I had to be in early because of inventory and just like every other inventory I have done it was long and the numbers were building on top of each other. I had to count everything on the floor of the store and highlight all the price tags. By doing that it took twice as long and by the time 10 a.m rolled around I was only 3/4th of the way done with my list. 

So I took my break, went to Panera and got some breakfast and of course another cup of coffee. I felt exhausted and I still had to work from 11-5. I wasn’t sure if I was going to make it and I wasn’t sure what I was going to do to pass the time. 

Once I had my hour break I came back and got a set of instructions from my manager. I was to finish the counting stuff on the floor and from there count the boxes, and papers in the back stock. My brain was hurting and I could feel myself dragging but I somehow managed to do all of that and pass the time. Once 4 p.m rolled around I knew that I was ready to pass out so I canceled on dinner with my dad and decided that once I got off I was going to go home, eat some leftovers and then pass out early. Inventory always drags me down and I have done plenty to know how I feel once it’s over. Of course once 5 rolls around I ended up getting into drilling myself on the ice cream flavors and what they had in them and one of the managers that was closing suddenly came in the store and heard me. 

Let’s just say when I left the store I was slightly embarrassed and I felt like I could sleep for two days.

I just hope I don’t have to inventory again for a long time.
