Do you know what is a split shift mean? I just happen to know yesterday when I was asked to work. It was explained to me as a shift in a day to work the first few hours and a gap after a minimum of 3 hours to work for another shift. That’s what I did today, one of the staff is unable to work so I cover her shift. I had my own shift from 8:30am-12:30pm after that I came back to work from 5:30-9:30pm. It’s not really a good shift for most of the employee maybe, but there’s nothing wrong with trying to do it, I don’t have some other things to do anyway. It helps my department and it benefit me as well to earn extra. If I don’t feel like, then I will refuse next time.
So today after my first shift, I don’t know what to do with the 4 hours vacant time. I can’t fix my mind if I'll go home, go to the mall or catch up my friend if she is available. I was decided to visit my friend, we meet halfway for a coffee, window shopping on Harbourtown and buy some grocery for her kids pack lunch at school. We queue on self-serve check-out machine as it can be quicker sometimes, while helping her scan the items I notice her son is trying to pick an item and swipe it on barcode scanner machine, he amuses himself thinking he can play with it and he may like the sound. I even assist him to scan properly as I know he is enjoying, after we finish we separate our ways. I go back to work just on time, it was a long and tiring day for me, I enjoy the shift though and had fun working with my team member as well as I’m happy for the unplanned meeting with Joan and Donna.
Now, I’m feeling so tired and waiting to fall asleep. I’m like vegetable now so stuffed and have sore legs. Hope to have a goodnight sleep.
Tomorrow is another day to live again and to be thankful for the new blessings to come.
