A Long Week

I just worked my first 40 hour week ever. And I’m dead. I know what you’re thinking. That I work full time. How is this my first 40 hour week. Full time at HPB is 35 hours. And this past week was coupon week. Extra hours were available. So I worked 40. But it wasn’t your regular 40. It was two ten hour days and a nine hour day mixed in with two eight hour days. It was LONG. And it was insanely busy.

So now I’m ready to relax. For about a year. My back pain still persists and I’ve recently been assigned to a new section of the store that sees WAY more books than my old section. But it’s okay. Someone always has it worse. And honestly, I don’t even have it bad. I’m just tired. And sleepy. And I could do without seeing any more education books for a few days. Ha.

I don’t know what this is about. Just a post about nothing, I guess. No question this time around.

  1. I know the feels! Of course, my 40 hour week is the usual 5 8-hour days, but it’s still long! I work at a grocery store, so I’m interested in this “coupon” week.


    • Do you live near a Half Price Books store? Go in! Sign up for the mailing list and you’ll get everything emailed to you. You wouldn’t believe how many people use all seven coupons. Makes sense.


  2. Isn’t that 45 hours? I would consider that a lot of overtime even as someone who works 40 hours regularly. Especially if you’re on your feet all day. Rest well, John!
