Last night I was texting with my friend while he was at work (he’s a manager, he can get away with it.) Meanwhile, I was just sitting back and enjoying some video games. It really made me appreciate the position I’m in with my job. Five days a week, same time each day, no weekends. No surprise overtime, and any meetings are planned at least two weeks in advance. It’s really nice working for a place that has its stuff together. At the deli, I was lucky if I got my two days off side-by-side.
Today I went out on the town, and by that, I meant doing errands. I was driving my new car, toting my new smart phone– I’m not bragging, there’s a point to this. I also came from work, meaning I was dressed slightly better than usual. Heading out of Costco with my pack of sparkling water and bag of coffee beans, I realized that I had taken my first steps into being a middle-aged yuppie.
I guess you have to start somewhere.
