On Sunday I returned from camping. Monday I voted. Tuesday I returned to work to learn of a situation that exploded while I was gone camping. I trained a new GM Wed-Fri while trying to handle the explosion plus another issue. We had a biggish-wig visit on Thursday morning. I spent hours and hours preparing for my upcoming training session in St. Louis next week, I learned I get to reprise my trainer role again for next year, and we had a massive sale rung in on Friday.
So I worked 7am to 11pm all those days, got little sleep, and am still alive. I logged 85 hours of training time in October, and that is above and beyond the time it takes me to run my store, which can be anywhere from 45-80 hours a week, depending on time of year and situation. Just running a store is too easy and too boring, so I love that I have the trainer piece to supplement that.
Today I am off, but I have to go in for a few hours to finish up my training prep and show a couple people a few things, and have some more conversations, then I have to go to another store tonight and help them move fixtures around. That pisses me off, but I do it anyway.
Tomorrow I work until noon, then drive to St. Louis.
How was your week?
