Yet at 7:30 AM, I get a call from my manager. Two coworkers who are supposed to be there called out, the store has no power, and she wants me to come in. What for, since, with no power, I can do approximately fuck all. But if she didn't, then she'd just call my mom and bitch at her until I went anyway, so I can't get out of it. I show up. I see not one, not two, not three, but FOUR carts jam-packed with books that I was intended to shelve. By myself. One coworker who showed up proceeded to do... fucking nothing. The other (who came in late) had her own shit to do. So here I am stuck with these carts. Which- we have no fucking room for anything out here. So I get through one cart. I do my best but only get a few books off of another two carts. I can't even get to the last cart because UPS dropped a metric fuckton of magazines off for me. I got all of one box done when ANOTHER shipment got here, slamming me with two wooden pallets stacked high with boxes of books. So there's me, drowning in my boxes, incapable of actually doing anything about ANY of them due to the lack of power. I get set to go on break, and lo and behold: power! Yay. Now that leaves me with THREE fucking hours left to get as much of this shit done as possible with no help. So there I am, unpacking... unpacking... unpacking. Coworkers bitch at me. They pile on garbage yet refuse to take it out. They whine about how tired and sick they are. I do as much as I can, yet you can still barely walk back there. I go to escape, and get snagged by these two idiotic motherfuckers looking for a USMLE exam book, yet this brain donor didn't even have any specific one in mind. I rattle down entire lists of these, making orders, cancelling orders everytime these fickle bitches think it's not quite the right book, or a different edition, or what-the-FUCK ever. I do this and get stuck a good solid half hour after I was supposed to leave. ... And my car also needs an oil change and a new tire.
So doesn't your problem seem like a little insignificant piece of flotsam now?
