Overtime

At work today, I was restoring a really nice old desk from the 1910s. I'd finally finished applying varnish to the top when I examined the bottom. The legs were intact, but on the bottom of this five thousand dollar desk, some little kid had stuck a wad of gum. A big wad. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I started my shift thinking I would get to leave early. Then we had about ten orders come in for pizzas with everything on them. That's unusual for us. Then it happened again. I smell like anchovies now and it won't wash out. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, we had an all you can eat pasta special. I've found there's always one fat guy who gets the most out of it at any all you can eat place. Well, we have ours. Turns out he's extra special. He complained when we closed at 11PM. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, nobody was doing anything because of the heat. Turns out our AC was broken over the winter. That's when we found out we have a deadline to process all orders for the week. Great timing. I'll be staying late and sweating on my desk. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I spent most of the day watching Hulu on my computer because I had nothing to do. I was about to leave when my coworker emailed me that we had quarterly forecasts due the next day. I wish I'd gotten it at 9AM instead of 5PM. Now I have to stay all night. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I photographed a family with seven kids. Seven.  Plus, three of them were under five years old. Try getting one baby to sit still or smile for a second, and you know it takes a while. Three is a little harder, especially when the kids are brats. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I was a good worker drone and swept leaves off the sidewalk in front of our building. Well, about a half hour later, they blew back again. I swept them another time and the same thing happened. For waste disposal reasons, I'm not allowed to bag them. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I had to drive home because I'd forgotten to turn off my oven. When I got back, there were two customers waiting at my checkout lane. I realized that I'd left the light on my stand. Even worse, nobody had walked over to turn it off.

At work today, we announced the teams for the annual basketball tournament. Even though it's "just for fun", everyone takes it really seriously. My team includes two people over 300 pounds. And they aren't tall. We're going to have to practice. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I worked an overnight shift at the hospital working in the pharmacy. At the exact point when I thought I'd finished all my assignments, a doctor dropped off five more orders. I was tempted to take some adderol for myself. I'm dumbemployed.

At work today, I finally figured out how to make my chocolate-peanut butter cookies taste right. I gave one to a kid as a surprise. He swelled up immediately. I didn’t know he had a peanut allergy, so I spent the rest of the day at the hospital making sure he was OK. I’m dumbemployed.

At work today, I was assigned to the student union in my college. It’s finals right now, so things were busy with students buying coffee. As a student, I have finals too. But I’m also broke. So now I’m working every shift. Who knows when I’ll have a chance to actually study. I’m dumbemployed.
