Working a Double is exhausting. Its been about four months or so since the slow season started and it is now officially ending. Last night I was at my part time job and since there is so few staff at this time I had to pull a double. Now that is totally fine by me. I was able to bring me a snack, I had coffee, good staff and a pretty nice day. IN general I would say that it was a nice way to spend my Sunday and I do need the paycheck. But there is also something about working a double after a long period of time where you work 6 to 8 hours and then just go home vs working the entire open to close and nothing else shift.
By the time we were an hour away from closing I was pretty irritated and I really was thinking about the big pot of chili that was waiting for me at home. I wanted to eat and sit down so bad. I could only tolerate so much and I was at the end of my thin strong. It went from being a fun day to being an exhausting day by the time we had thirty minutes left. We had two big groups come in and I was dreading having to redo most of what we had already done. I just wanted to sleep but of course I toughed it out to the best of my abilities. Really that's all you can do sometimes.
When we finally did close I tell you that it was quite the victory. I was so excited to go and get back in my own bed after a nice hot meal. Just getting to my car after we had finished was enough to give me that extra boost.
There are gonne be many exhausting days coming up and I can tell you it’s going to be a long few months. I look forward to what can or will happen. For now I will just ride it out as best as I can.
