Strangely, I was never asked to work inside the store to cover someone else who had called out
On my 1st job after leaving school, I had many primary responsibilities. I worked at a sizable box store. On any given day, I could either bring in shopping carts from the corrals and into the store, or I would work at the apartment & gardening section. Whenever my fellow co-workers would complain about their jobs, I would always remind them that, at the least, they had a very powerful air conditioning system to cool them as they worked at their currency registers or stocking the shelves inside the store. On the other hand, I was almost regularly perspiring my butt off! I especially liked how anytime 1 of the workers in my department called out, someone who normally worked inside the temperature controlled section of the store would be sent to assist me, and they would act as if it was the worst thing in the world. Strangely, I was never asked to work inside the store to cover someone else who had called out. What a delight that would be to be able to work in the air conditioning for just once! For several times, I would clear the parking lot of carts, entirely by myself, and then take a moment to rest just inside the building to enjoy the air conditioning. One of the assistant managers would guess that I was slacking off, but I was just trying to cool myself off! When things were honestly busy, and the carts were piling up despite our best efforts, the same manager would sarcastically offer a “team building” exercise in which they would go out to help us! Fat option that would ever happen!
