First day of my real shift, and I’m feeling good! Lots of energy, still smiling, conversations are fresh- it’s going good!

Here’s how Day 5 of CamperForce Peak 2016 went:
Let’s see where should I start? Okay, let’s start with miles 1 through 5- basically before lunch. I pretty much stayed in the same two-three mods which all happen to be on the first floor, so all concrete, with the occasional Hot Pick up on like P4B, where I had to climb 3 flights of stairs for one item, then continue as usual…
I tried to break up the boredom- with general chit chat and about a million smiles (some of which are not returned!!!!) to just about anyone I could get to make eye contact!
I snuck over to McDonald’s for lunch and grabbed a Southwest Chicken Salad. Drove like a maniac back to work, parked, checked my teeth for ‘left-overs’. TMI! Sorry. Then did a speed walk back inside the building, and over to the lunch start up, where I felt it was my day for trivia!
Trivia today was great, but apparently, it wasn’t my day. To be honest, all the questions seemed to be things I knew, but only after the actual answer was revealed. Go figure!
Anyway, after lunch I still had a lot of energy. Then I saw a lady who literally looked like death. I may have made a similar comment about her dreary disposition to myself, then regretted it instantly as Karma slapped me twice in the face. Within like two minutes all my energy was drained- and I was dragging my feet through the aisles, trying to stay awake.
Ahhh! No way- I still had 5 hours to go. And either Karma was cursing me or lunch wasn’t as nutrient dense as I had hoped. I guess it might have been a combination- but whatever the culprit the rest of my day dragged like no other. At one point, I was hunched over the cart and the tote driving it through P2C… not my finest hour-
By 4:55pm I couldn’t get to the time clock fast enough!
