Of course, the main topic of discussion most of Saturday was the e-mail received from the Camperforce folk Friday evening about our end date of 12-19, and all of its ramifications. When we weren't talking about our plans we were grinding up and down the long picking aisles of the FC averaging between 200 and 250 picks per quarter. I, somehow, got sucked back into Pick Mod 'E' Friday, and never escaped all day Saturday. In the interests of full disclosure I did receive a one hour respite when I was sent to Pick Mod 'F' for an all too brief spell, but I otherwise spent my day on P-2-E and P-3-E picking apparel, and apparel related items from row 1 to 57 and back.....from the #1 bin all the way to the 273rd bin in each row.
Our time here at Amazon is quite finite now.....after Saturday we have just 6 work days left (barring any MET days). We have already discussed and set our final dinner together as a group.....December 18th at Colton's Steakhouse and Grill. As my good friend Roscoe (Yellowstone General Stores) would say at the end of each shift...."Time to wind 'er down!".
TLE requested and received from one of our managers special dispensation the other day and is now permanently 'locked' out of Building 'C' where the dreaded Pick Mod 'E' resides. Her sinuses are affected by the dust that is blown around by all the fans. If only I had a sinus problem.....NOT! As I head off to Building 'C' at the beginning of each quarter she sweetly mocks me as she heads to my beloved Building 'B' to pick. Will I escape the surly bonds of Building 'C' in the next 6 days? Only time will tell....perhaps Sunday will be the day....stay tuned as 'they' say.
We emerged from the concrete bunker shortly after 5 pm to gusty, cold to the bone wind and the feeling of moisture in the air which immediately caused a quickening of our walking pace....we were home in record time! We managed to get home without being rained upon, and it didn't really begin raining until sometime after midnight, but it sure felt like rain was in the offing. It was nice to lie in bed this morning listening to the rain on the roof before finally arising at 4 am to another day of endless pacing in Building 'C'.
Thanks for stopping by!
