Especially in places that aren’t theirs and with things that don’t belong to them?
It was IMPOSSIBLE to keep the store clean today. I did nothing but picked up piles of merchandise scattered all over every area and corner of the place. Retail is a pain in the ass enough without people grabbing random items off of the shelves and throwing them over their shoulders for no reason. (Or so it seemed.)
I understand it is “my job” to put things away after customers carelessly leave them out of place…but it just seems an unnecessary inconvenience over common courtesy. People (who think they’re being cute) try to call it “job security”, as if I do NOTHING ELSE but clean up messes all day. Actually, I could get a lot more of my ACTUAL JOB done (and far more efficiently) if people took the time to think, “This isn’t my home and these aren’t my things, I should put them back where I found them”.
It’s that whole “Do unto others” thing that I’ve heard so much about.
I also munched on an extra slice of bread while I was making this, which I show the remains of in my picture.
Snack before work:
A little granola and greek yogurt. It was going to be a long night and I was hungry.
At work I had half of a turkey cranberry sandwich and a cup of soup. I love this time of year because that is totally my favorite sandwich and we only carry it from October till about the end of December. I try to take advantage of it.
It wasn’t exactly a BAD day or anything, just very busy and a little overwhelming as we are often understaffed for this sort of mess. Tomorrow will be a better day.
Exercise: 3 mile walk
