Shiftless…

June 30, 2008 at 3:40 pm (Cussed Dumbers)

I find myself stuck in an impromptu 5-day vacation. “Oh, poor me!” you say? It would be more fun if I’d known it was coming.

Last week some legal issues came up (jury duty, the good kind of legal issue) and I piled on the hours early in the week so I wouldn’t lose income by doing my civic duty. That worked out fine, but then I got an e-mail from the boss stating that due to personnel issues I would be working Tuesday through Saturday this week.

Whimper.

It’s freaking Blues Festival week, and there are bands I wanted to see this year. Isaac Hayes is playing Thursday. Yes, children, Chef is headlining. (Will he play Theme from Shaft? Love Gravy or Chocolate Salty Balls from South Park?) Maybe I’ll get lucky and he’ll stop by the store for some late-night porno or Little Debbie’s.

The other is on Saturday night. Elvin Bishop. I’ve been a fan since 1975, when Fooled Around and Fell in Love was a Top 40 hit. His album Ace in the Hole is a favorite. Gone Fishin’ is a classic, and the instrumental version of Fooled Around… rips it up. Maybe I can take a very late lunch and listen from the Hawthorne Bridge.

So, now, what the hell to do on Monday? I’ve already gone on a long bus ride. Went shopping for a new wallet. Paid my phone bill. Stopped by work, no emergency shifts to fill, thereby giving me negotiating power for Saturday. This means I will be working the next ten days with one day off. I see a cranky bastard in the near future.

I must be getting old. I actually miss going to work. We’ll see how long that feeling lasts…
