The Daily Grind (or What I Am Currently Doing for a Living)
Before I start, I just have to say I can't name my employer or their affiliates. I'm not really supposed to be talking about them on any form of social media including blogs and I'm not supposed to say anything at all negative about them.
Luckily, I don't really have anything negative to say about them, as a company, at all.
I work in a packing warehouse. Basically, we get orders in online, I'm one of the lucky ducks that gets to package the orders up into boxes. Sounds dead simple, right? Pee-easy. And it is, mostly, there's very little that can go wrong. I just have one thing to say.
OH MY GOD MY FEET.
The shifts are long at this place, 10 hours, and we get two half hour breaks. Twenty minutes of each of those breaks is spent sitting. The rest of the time I'm standing. Oh my lord my feet. MY FEET. I swear they've swollen. I know it isn't the company's fault, I knew the hours and said yes anyway, but I just didn't realise how much of a battering that meant for my tootsies. It also means I get home shattered and not able to think, let alone do what I want to do. Like put vapid things on the internet.
On the massive plus side, however, it means I only have to work Monday to Thursday. Score!And everyone who works there is really nice, seriously. Incredibly nice.
So yeah that's why I haven't been keeping to my regularly updated blatherings. Hopefully this job won't last long and something much more "Alice" will come along.
