Ah, I have to say, today’s shift hearkened back to the time where I was either alone, or part of a trio taking calls during the weekend. Why so? Because not only did the calls came in quickly, the low agent count (at least as far as merchant solutions was concerned) meant that the queue backed up just as fast. Out of the five people expected to come in, only three of us actually did, which meant that the calls were almost back-to-back up until eleven-thirty or so, and it was literally only during our designated break times that we can rest our throats. It wasn’t as stressful, but just as tiring as a Tuesday shift, for sure.
While it wasn’t raining when I left for work this morning, it started to pour around mid-morning, and never really stopped. It was raining once I got home, and it’s only intensified from late afternoon onward. We weren’t even able to go to church for the evening mass, that’s how strong the rain (and the accompanying wind) had become.
On the bright side though, this means that it’s going to be cool for the rest of the night, which means it’s going to be easy going to bed and sleeping for a change. On the down side though, if the rain continues until tomorrow, then a lot of us are going to be wet going to work in the morning.
P.S. I made a quick detour to have a back massage, but I have to say it was very unsatisfactory. The masseuse assigned to me seemed to have no concept of a proper rubdown, and instead seemed to focus on pushing down really really hard on specific points on my back. Ugh.
