#2585 – "hey, you're like 5 minutes away, right?"

i just was woken up by my boss calling me (the funeral march is a great ringtone for that)

“hey, you live like 5 minutes away, right?”

turns out the girl opening the store today customer care-wise didn’t know she was scheduled today, so he wanted to know if i could come in to help get things ready since she lives up by white marsh (about just over an hour away). he said i’d get an hour of overtime for it.

i told him that i didn’t think i could make it. today was my day off and i was going to be going to the beach i told him. even though the going to the beach part wouldn’t be for another few hours.

he was nice about it and understood, but i feel bad saying that i couldn’t help. but last night we didn’t get out until 11:30 pm, i stayed for inventory the night before that (another 3.5 hours), and since i just went to bed about 3 or 4 hours ago i’d probably be more of a hinderance than help.

at least that’s what i’m telling myself.

(i added up the hours i’d get for the week so far if i worked that extra hour: 46. if it would have put me over 50 hours then maybe i’d have done it.)
