A lot of my time at work is spent trying to find ways to keep myself from falling asleep. Don’t get me wrong, I like my job, but I work in a specialty store and hours can go by without a soul walking in the door. I bring along plenty to do but sometimes it just isn’t enough.
So I find myself sitting behind the counter, eyes tired from reading, hands cramped from knitting, and any actual work long since completed. But I still had four more hours before closing! What could I possibly do for all that time? What do my peers do when they’re bored?
Take pictures of themselves and post them online complaining about how bored they are.
It’s seems like a silly idea, but actually…nope, nevermind. There was no way to justify my logic. Everyone does it, so naturally I should go jump off a bridge. Or something. But I can’t say I was seeing the appeal yet. Maybe I needed to try harder…
by doing over the top yet still half-hearted facial expressions to see if I could one day make it big as a stock photo model.
Okay, that took an even bigger leap in logic. But it was slightly more entertaining.
