The Priorities of a 20-Something GG
“I’m sorry!” I said as I burst through the cinema doors two hours late.
“Why are you even here?” Jason, my manager, asked.
“I told you I would be,” I said.
“I told you not to bother.”
“Yes you did.” I tied the apron behind my back and took his place behind the small concession stand between the only two screens the theater had.
“Where were you?” he asked.
“I told you,” I said. He waited.
“We got lost looking for a cool-looking tower.”
“It’s your first shift after holiday.”
“Holidays make memories, but not like life.”
“Did you find it?” he asked.
This happened. Mostly. I hadn’t just returned from holiday. Not to mention it’s generally referred to as vacation in my vernacular. I did go to work two hours late after a spontaneous road trip that was just supposed to be a run for breakfast. Remind me to tell that story sometime.
