It doesn't really feel like Sunday... (Long days)
So, I've got ten minutes left before I get off phonewatch duty and open the reception of the hotel I work at... and watch the phone simultaneously, for another four hours. I've been at work basically for the last 24 hours and it just dawned on me how much I've done during these latest three days. I took two consecutive evening-shifts followed by the full-day I'm currently on, but this day has felt so long. Not really boring, just really, really long.
I woke up at 7 a.m to get myself tidied up and fix the breakfast buffet, sat in the reception for three hours, basically getting paid to sit and watch the guests eat. That was followed by the day-shift of the hotel (Where you get swamped by a lesser hill of paperwork) and some phonewatch. Sitting in the reception does get tiring since you don't do anything (Paradoxical, isn't it? People who excercise will know what I'm talking about) so I went for a jog on my two-hour break.
Back on the phonewatch for two and a half hours where I haven't really had that much to do, and now I'm here with minutes to spare before opening the reception and psyching myself for four hours of waiting. Eight arrivals in four hours...
Anyone else who's had really long days? My 24 hour streak doesn't really count since that was all chips, coke and playstation. Followed by a surreal morning walk. I fell asleep because there wasn't that much left to do.
