Five-Hundred Word Challenge 655: Morning Rushing

Actually this morning I am rushing about a bit as I haven’t given myself enough time before the start of my shift to get everything that I need to get done done. Bit of an issue, but if work is quiet enough I can hopefully get through everything that I need to do. Still, I should have made sure that I had enough time. Kind of my problem there, but sometimes I’m a bit lazy in the morning. I think I will survive, somehow. Really not sure. We’ll have to see how it all goes.

Hopefully the day is slow. I want a bit more space right now. Can give customers a bit more attention and make sure that I’m giving them the best service of customer that I can. I’d rather not be all over the place and stressed out trying to manage customer expectations without feeling like I have enough time to manage them. Sometimes the job feels that way and sometimes it does not. We’ll see.

Right now it’s more of a race to get through everything. Less than forty minutes to go before I’m thrown into the deep end and needing to service all of the customers and all of their whims and queries. A lot of telling them I can’t do much at the moment. Fun times. I’d rather go back to operating in a manner closer to normal.

Well, I’d rather another job, but that’s a story I think I’ve covered more than enough times and it probably isn’t a story. In fact, it would be fair to say that it’s not a story at all.

Anyway, we’ll have to see how the day pans out. Maybe there will be space and maybe there will not. So long as I get a bit more breathing space, I’ll be happy.

So long as the day doesn’t drag, I’ll be happy.

So long as I come out alive at the other end, I’ll be happy. I think that is where I’ll draw the line today. Maybe not the best place to draw it, but at the same time maybe it is the best. I don’t know. I’m just rambling at the moment.

Well, I think I really should get on with getting other things done. The day is yet to begin, but it already has. There are two days operating today: the work day and the rest of the day which kind of overlaps with the work day. It’s two different modes, two different methods of operation. We’ll have to see which one comes out stronger than the other, if there is indeed anything to see at all of course.

But now that I have said all that, I really should get to it. I need to keep on getting ready. Need to water the plants. Need to do other things that take up time, but all things take up time. Just need to make sure I’m getting the most out of this morning before work.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 05:10:25

Watered the plants. Had to bring the lavender and dragon fruit inside as it started raining. Then it stopped raining but I had to start work. Oh well.

Happy with the speed of this. I think the text mostly makes sense. Could be better, et cetera et cetera.

Written at home.
