Tonight I work from 2 to close.
I dislike it.
The time goes by just as quickly as it does during the day, but the days I work at night just seem like a waste. I enjoy the closing procedures, but they are much more physical than when we open. Machinery gets broken down and cleaned, floors are washed, Windows wiped, etc. I go home exhausted – which is great, but I usually have to be in very early the next morning. So, to me, to days feel like one, long, shift.
I also don’t like doing tok many things during the day, for fear of becoming overly tired in the middle of the shift. That’s where the feeling of wasted time comes into play. It stinks. I also wish I had more of a set schedule, but I have a job that I enjoy. I’m still thankful for that!
