Well, what a week I have had. 12-13 hour work days from Monday to Thursday and a normal work day today. Tired, exhausted, out of fuel, out of gas, pooped – name all of them, that’s me. I cannot tell you how difficult it is for me to wake up at 6 am and get to the office by 8:30 am especially since I am not a morning person and I have gotten used to evening work hours.
So the last three weeks I have worked in the morning from 8:30 am and yet I only get home by 9 or 10pm because of the crazy way out office/department and team works. I get so pissed off especially since I know that most people who don’t like to extend their shifts, say so and they don’t stay back after 9 hours. Yet here I am, like a fool, because my team members got used to the insane hours plus long breaks. I don’t like that because I want to go home once my 9 hours are up. Make me work in those 9 hours (an hour break in between) but that should be it.
So after 12 plus hours each day for the last 4, today I had decided that I had to leave on time. So I said in advance that I would have to go on time so I came at 9 am and planned to leave by 6pm. A few minutes after 6:20 pm, I was out waiting for an Uber and then marveled at the fact that I was leaving after work and it was still light outside. I had skipped lunch and was very hungry so I went to McDonald’s and had a Junior Maharaja Mac Chicken, French Fries, Coke and a McFlurry. Then I came home and bought some groceries and snacks for the weekend and got to my room and changed into a lungi and now I am relaxing.
I plan to stay home for the next two days and do nothing but listen to music, play some Youtube videos and watch movies. Sleep a while too!
