Yep, a one day weekend for me this week as I agreed to work different days this next week so a coworker can take his newborn son to a doctor appointment. The payoff is that I’ll have a three day weekend coming up! And I’m gonna do some traveling during those days too, but not too far away.
I plan to drive south of Las Vegas to visit the tiny town of Searchlight and then on to Laughlin, which is pronounced ‘lawflin’. I’ve never been to the very southern tip of my adopted state. Laughlin is located right on the Colorado River and according to the Wiki link I posted, it’s economy has been in decline which stinks. I’ll be sure to have photos for you from this upcoming ride.
In the mean time, I’ve not been taking many photos in recent days and even skipped posting anything yesterday which is kind of odd for me since I usually upload something every day. I’ve been a bit annoyed with my little part time job the last few days. Extra things have been added to the daily routine and I don’t like it!
Extra shit we are expected to clean, as in the water piping for the sprinkler system inside the building. Also, I and my coworker who has the same responsibilities as I do, are going to begin learning the front desk operations which entails answering the phones and working the computers. Again, I don’t like it.
I didn’t hire on for that, it was never in the job description. And I really don’t want to work directly with the public which I can do, and do it just fine but it’s not part of my initial job description. Am I just being a weenie? Technically, in terms of income, I can walk away from this job and the bills will still be paid. I ask myself, is the hassle of driving eighteen miles of Las Vegas freeway and the nutter drivers worth this?
