Went to Work A Little
Tuesday, May 05, 2020
Yesterday I was asked to go in to the office to notarize a document! Yay, I got to go to work! The first time in my life I have EVER voiced that sentiment. Pandemic ravings I guess.
So I drove the ten miles to the school, got masked up and stepped into a ghost town. The Headmaster was there and the Controller and that was about it. I did the notary block and then quickly left. A school without kids in it is so sad and lonely!
Then I stopped at Wal-mart. They tried to charge me $7.49 for a 4-pack of Charmin toilet paper! I said no way and left. How could they do that? I thought they would be trying to help but that is price-gouging. There were only a few left on the display and I think they upped the price due to scarcity. I hate that store anyway.
We still have two rolls so I will get TP at Aldi, where they don't seem to be as greedy.
One thing about going to work yesterday. I remembered how boring it actually is to be there all day. My desk looked un-thrilling and my office, although quite large, looked stale and dark. Being away like this for 5 or 6 weeks and looking at it all with a fresh perspective makes me seriously consider retiring. My job seems meaningless when there is no daily hustle and bustle. Maybe I don't care about it and will arrange to exit after I get back there.
Lots to think about.
