Tales of a grocery store clerk

The past three days at work have been painfully slow! The Christmas rush is over and where I live we have been put into lockdown. I think people are actually listening to this lockdown notice and are trying to stay home as much as possible.

Despite that, there are still people coming into the store. We are an essential service after all, people need to eat and feed their families. I have been very pleasantly surprised at the appreciative people that have come in the past three days. Everyone is keeping their distance, being respectful of others in the store, and are generally in a good mood.

I believe the next couple of days will be busy, with New Year’s eve coming up and the fact that we are closed on New Year’s Day. Perhaps not, but I suspect that will be the case.

In any event, people

are behaving, and there have been no incidents. I wish it was busier, or at least steadier with customers, to make the time go quicker, but I’d rather people being safe. I actually sought out more work last night – I ended up dusting the perimeter of the store, which took almost 45 minutes of my time. It helped pass the time away.

Be safe everyone, follow the rules and we will all be able to get back to normal soon! Till next week…
