When my friends suggested going to the beach for the weekend, I immediately agreed to go too.
We planned our adventure and fun for a month from our decision, so we had time to take the days off work.
The extra time also gave us a few weeks to save some extra money. I asked my boss for a few days off. I gave my boss plenty of notice so she could find someone else to cover my shifts at the cannabis dispensary. I’ve been working the night shift at the cannabis dispensary for the past 6 months. I usually stay until close. Sometimes I deliver cannabis orders as well, so I knew it was important to give my boss plenty of notice. I have worked overtime each week leading up to the vacation. My paychecks have enabled me to save $350 already and I still have one more check. Last week, I picked up two additional shifts from a new employee at the dispensary that did not want to work on Thursday or Friday. I doubt the new employee will last long. She gave up two shifts and called out sick for a third in the same week. My boss and the manager of the dispensary frowns upon employees that miss work consistently. I only have five more days until I will be relaxing on the beach with the sun on my skin. I can’t wait to have some time with my friends. We’re going to dance at a few clubs and visit a place that has male dancers. It’s going to be a great weekend to relax and unwind.
