I’ve never been a fan of the DI. This weekend I had the opportunity to volunteer at the DI as one of the sorters. I thought I would be serving on the doc where everyone drops off their junk, like I do occasionally. Instead they asked me to stay inside and help stack the items on carts that would then be taken inside and put on the shelf. My job was to tag the price on the item and put it on the cart. A team on the otherwise of a wall decided what the price would be. I started out helping a girl who enjoyed her job but left on the first break to leave me to do the job alone. It turns out that its not so bad by myself. I was able to organize the carts much faster and I could do the work that I wanted to do. I organized a nice system and I was able to keep up with those on tphe other side of the wall. One of the workers decided to come give me some tips on how to speed up work. That was annoying. I had a system and I was not falling behind. The only time I had extra buckets to sort through was when they on the other side would save up the buckets and send them all over at the same time. I could work through those fast enoug though. My neighbor showed up a little later and they it him on the doc where I thought I would be put at. All in all it was a decent experience. I didn’t learn much but I did realize how fortunate I am to have the job that I so have. I have done work like thay before. Its not a job that I want to do again.
I would have posted more, but I decided not to. The cool thing is that I posted everything above from my phone. I blame all typo’s on that as well.
