I'm working by myself today

I usually start at 1050am. I get a call just after 930am that the other girl was sick and needs to go home. I don't have a key so I'm sitting here waiting for the owner to come unlock. I will then work until closing by myself.

It's more hours for you though. Now Unless I am really really sick, I still go to work. I've gone to work with my throat so sore I could hardly talk but I went anyway.

That sounds like it is going to be a long day for you at work. Although, I guess that it is better that she went home when she did rather than you having to be around a sick co-worker.

Maybe it will be a really peaceful day. You sure will not have anyone making messes that you need to clean up.

What time do you close today? I hope you are not too busy then since you will be working alone instead of with someone. I am surprised they didn't try to find someone else to cover for the sick girl so you are not working by yourself.

Now I would see that as a major benefit, because I work better when left alone, I prefer my own company and I can get a lot of work done too, when there is no boss to watch over you or any other colleagues disrupting you. Providing you get paid then yes that sounds like manna from heaven for me. I guess we are all different.

It's more the safety if something would happen, noone would be around until the following morning, which is very unsafe.

I am more worried about my safety than anything.

So does this mean that you were lucky enough to have some extra hours to work? I know for me there are some times that I like to work with other people but in the long run I think that it is much better for me to be a solitary person as opposed to being someone that works with a lot of co-workers. The reason that this is the case for me is because of the fact that I tend to think that most people don't always have a good attitude about their work and it does nothing but brings me down.

Nope, I worked my regular hours, just had more work because it was just myself not the other girl. I got about an hour or little under extra. I like working by myself, but sometimes someone being there to vent or talk to is nice.

Ohhh means you are able to work alone no problem because some time this type of situation arise everyone goes and we are working alone.

Wow... You would think that since they want you to come in early like this due to someone else being sick they would be there waiting for you. To me this is bad business but reminds me almost of somewhere I worked once.

To work alone might take up more time than to work together with someone else. In my work, most of the time I work alone, but sometimes I also need team work based on the nature of the work. Take care, Ricki.
