Ok so, this was Easter Weekend, or Zombie Jesus Sunday for those of you who prefer a little kick-ass with their choice of holidays. For me, that meant working Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and from the get go it was pretty brutal and a whole mess of bat-shit insane.
So Friday starts off normal. Classes weren’t in so I got to sleep in, got up and got ready for my shift at work starting at 1PM. Turns out my friend Heather was coming into town and because of work, I’d have to wait until Saturday to see her. Major bummer. But it’s a fairly slow day so besides a few notes left by management, it’s fairly slow and we just take it easy. I get off at 10PM and go home. That’s when I remember that Heather is in town and so I begin a scramble to clean up my apartment before she comes over, and I get done around 1AM. So I go to bed.
Saturday decided to make things… interesting when they had me do a rapid turnaround and come in at 8:30AM, which isn’t really that big a deal, but I had stayed up to 1AM, so I was running off 5 hours of sleep. Already tired, I had two of our incompetent managers to deal with, who were trying to stack crap on top of crap to make a shit sandwich with all of us in the middle. So after finishing my notes left by management, I decided to clean up, only to find out there was some freight left in furniture, and I had less than an hour to do it before I went home. So, it’s super rush mode to get everything finished for my supervisor, who was happy and so I went to take my last break before I went home. While on break, incompetent manager shows up and starts listing off things I was supposed to do right away. I just nodded my head, waited till she left, then went and clocked out to go home. At home, I proceeded to finish cleaning up and got ready for my super lady friend Heather, who came over to enjoy some time together, eat pizza, make super awesome blueberry cheesecake muffins, and enjoy some Whose Line is it Anyway, before she had to go home to spend Sunday with her parents. I stayed up a bit and went to bed around midnight.
Sunday decided to be the day from Hell, which I guess might be somewhat appropriate given it was Zombie Jesus Day. With most of my area zoned and clean, I decided to take to dusting the large furniture displays with the help of Michele in Housewares, agreeing to help her with the notes she was unaware of that I had a copy of. Since my stuff was fast and easy, we were able to spend quite a bit of time working on her stuff to make sure it was done properly, even making one guy happy when we asked a manager to lower the price on a deleted display that we were going to trash anyway. Around noon, Kylan and Michele invited me to lunch at their house, where I enjoyed a bowl of cereal and got to meet Bebo Jr, Princess Leia and Vader, their three boy kittens that are 5 weeks old. It was here that they invited me to play D&D with them that night along with a few other guys at work. I agreed, and we headed back to work. I was scheduled to 5:30 but my foot was killing me, so I left a little early at 5. I went home, chilled for a bit, grabbed a shower, and then headed out to grab pizza for the game. I brought plenty, and we spent the time bullshitting and carrying on, creating my first ever D&D character, Humphry L. Watt, aka Wattle, complete with my hilarious Scotish baroque every time he had something to say. We played a quick game and then Michele had to get some sleep, so us guys, Kylan, Ray and Jeffrey, just chilled outside talking about how much bullshit Wal-mart puts us through. Around 2AM we had to call it a night, and I went home and slept.
