Being able to say TGIF

Leaving work for the dayAs much as I’ve complained about not having enough time to get much sleep this week, I happy that I’m able to say ‘Thank God it’s Friday’. When I was in school, and working service industry jobs I always said that I could never see myself at a desk job. And now I think, “What a silly little kid I was.”  What I didn’t realise was my need for routine… something that will enable me to do something out of the blue.

I think what i hated the most about working customer service related jobs was the irregular schedule. Not being able to make plans because your schedule could change at a moment’s notice. But it was also the fact that because you’re on such an irregular schedule,1 it meant you pretty much partied with your co-workers. It was condusive to a life of work, you spend all your time with the same people… it becomes inevitable that you start to become attractive to someone from the group.

I don’t want to get into too much detail about this, so I’m going to stop now. I’m so glad it’s Friday, even though I’m not doing anything fun tonight2. I haven’t been paid yet so I’m not going out with my friends but I do have xPeriapexx’s Pig Roast tomorrow, and I’m pretty excited about it. I also hope to get some work done for my friends’ website that I was supposed to have drafted for them by today. Oops3.

What are you working hours like? What would you prefer your working hours were like?

  1. @Øyvind: Sounds like a lot of fun =P hehe

    @CK: 9-6 is a pretty long day. Maybe you could ask to work 9-5 instead? Though that won’t allow you to travel more. Don’t you get a lot of vacation days?

    @Chelle: What hours do you work now? Yes, I agree even when I wasn’t working regular hours I noticed that everyone was always happier on Fridays.
