My Life As a Video Game
OK everyone knows I work in a warehouse. The warehouse is set up in a maze like grid of racks and aisles and we drive up and down them all day. When I started there I used to think of myself as a rat in a maze. Running up and down the aisles as fast as I could so I could get my reward( my paycheck).
But no longer. My company is currently trying to save energy by replacing the mercury vapor lights with energy saving fluorescent lights. Every single fixture has a motion sensor on it and will turn off if nobody goes under it. When we come back from breaks almost every light is off. So as you drive down an aisle the lights turn on one at a time. I am no longer a rat I am now Pac Man. Except I turn on the lights. I drive up and down the aisles as fast as I can turning on the lights so I can get a bonus( incentive pay). I hope I don’t run into any ghosts in the dark when I’m about to finish a level( work day). We don’t have any bouncing fruit( ok we do when we drop a pallet) but we do have tours that I could run into. Maybe I could get a bonus if I knock them all down. ( Actually I have long referred to the tours as bowling pins, they are usually chefs and occasionally they come in wearing their tall chef hats and uniform. To me they look like bowling pins especially if there is a group of them.)
