I went to work at Pizza Hut . . . for one shift. That's right. I worked for 4 hours. When I left, I just felt . . . exhausted. The idea of going in there after already working a full-shift made me want to cry. When I went home, I washed my uniform (I had spent 3 hours on the computer, doing training modules and the last hour doing dishes) and put it in a bag. I was scheduled for 13 hours my first week and I saw the schedule for the week after, where I was scheduled for close to 21 hours. I just couldn't do it. There was no way I was going to be able to make myself do it.
So, let's go back to the day I started at Pizza Hut. When the owner of the hotel that I work at came in after lunch, I said, "I want to tell you before you hear it from someone else. I got a second, part-time job at Pizza Hut. It's only supposed to be 12 hours a week, in the evening, so it won't interfere with the hotel."
He got this look on his face, like he was offended. "Why didn't you ask me?"
Um . . . "Ask you what? I already work 40 hours a week!"
So the next day, I asked him if he was still willing to give me extra hours (under the table . . . we'll see how that goes) and he didn't hesitate when he told me yes. I told him that I was taking him up on it. And then he proceeded to tell me that I could take as many extra hours as I wanted and that I could stay late on some days and get the stuff done for the hotel that I can't get done when I'm the only one here.
So far, so good. I picked up the evening shift last Sunday and then came back in on Monday morning. So I only have Wednesday off this week. I think I'm going to pick up an extra shift every other week or so. For now. He was talking about getting rid of two of the front desk clerks for a few different reasons and I think he's expecting me to pick up some of the slack. I don't know about all that, but we'll see what happens.
I don't want to go to bowling tonight. I joined a league back in late August and it's EVERY TUESDAY night. I don't want to go. And the weather seems fine here in Western PA, so I can't even hope that it gets canceled because of some sort of storm. I wanna sleep. And I have to go look at a car tonight - a 2012 PT Cruiser in blue. If I like it, I'm thinking about calling it the TARDIS, because they look bigger on the inside . .. get it?
I'm a geek.
NANO starts on Thursday. I have a few ideas, but nothing solid. We'll see.
How's everyone else doing?
