I'm getting myself adjusted to my actual work schedule here at MOP#1 (we're #1, yay!), so I haven't had a lot to say in the last week or two... I'm working four 10 hour days - Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 6 AM to 4:30 PM and Saturday from 9 AM to 7:30 PM. Yes, that's 6 AM. As in, in the morning. As in, the bane of my existence.
And yes, as I confirmed to my boss the other day, I did pick this work schedule. I like 4-10s, and I couldn't work on Sundays, so this was my best alternative over the Sunday-Weds late shift and the Monday-Friday with rotating Saturdays.
Having worked it for 3 weeks, I have to say the Monday-Friday shift isn't bad. I'd probably actually pick that shift if I had to pick all over again, because it gave me time to work out every day before work, as opposed to stumbling out of bed at 4:45 AM and rushing to get ready, pack a lunch, and leave the house by 5:30 at the latest to be at my desk and ready to talk on the phone at 6.
But, as Adam Again used to sing, "It is what it is (what it is)". (That's a great song, btw. Watch that video.) And for better or worse, I'm getting adjusted to early mornings, albeit reluctantly. This is why I'm writing a blog post before 6 AM on a Saturday, and why I tend to be utterly exhausted and ready to go to bed around 9 PM most nights. On off days, I find myself staying up until 10. Whee. For an avowed night person, you must understand how much I hate this. Normally I'd be feeling rather alive and alert in the evening hours, and it thoroughly sucks to be yawning at 8:00. Just sayin'.
In any event, there haven't been a lot of customer stories that stuck with me enough to compel me to write lately, at least until the last couple of days. Today's stories involve Ms. I'mNotCrazy and Ms. VeryInformedConsumer.
