Ended up at a place where I used to work retail the other day.
Actually ran into someone who had given her two weeks’ notice around the same time I had decided to pull a “went out for cigarettes and never came home” (a better opportunity came up) . She was back in the uniform – apparently plans hadn’t panned out, and she needed to fall back on the old job.
Maybe that’s why I didn’t bother calling it in with my old retail job. Wanted to sever that line for myself – steel a little resolve by only leaving one direction to move in.
