“Oh man…. how much longer until I’m done for today?” John thought to himself, idly flipping burgers as he counted down the minutes to when he could finally quit for the evening. The tired, worn-out twentysomething was just waiting for the day to end so he could get back home and get a few hours rest. That was all he could do, given that his boss seemed to have a bone to pick with him, calling him out to work at the most inappropriate times and everything. He had been working continuously for the last three weeks, not getting much time to rest in between shifts.
“Almost time now…” He thought, watching the clock tick closer to 6pm. Eventually it reached that time, and he couldn’t be more relieved. “Thank Arceus, I can finally punch out for the evening!” He smiled, leaving the grills as he went to get his stuff.
“And just where do you think you’re going?” An all too familiar voice called out behind him.
