i was meant to go out with Kate today, so imagine my disappointment when work rang at 8am, asking me if I could work all day. I said yes, because there was a time when I was avoiding all extra shifts due to Uni, and I feel that I should redeem myself now while I have time away from studying. Of course, I was grumbling to myself all the time I was getting ready to leave, annoyed that I had to miss out on my day off with Kate; even the thought of the extra pay in my next paycheck next week didn't do much to improve my disposition. then as i raced into work, just after 9am, Kathie [the admin lady] called out, "Jade, you're an angel!" and David [manager] added a big "thanks for coming in!"
funny how that just made me feel a whole lot better about going in for that extra shift - those little words of appreciation just made it all worth it.
