I try to not watch the clock at work because it tends to make the night move slower. I usually give myself a list of tasks to complete — and try to make the list longer — before checking the time. Most nights seem to drag but when the last hour comes I get really excited. My job is either really stressful or slow and boring so I always long for freedom. At this point in the night I’m super attentive, making sure everything is stocked and tables are properly set. I check and recheck and watch the clock like a hawk for when I can ask to leave. Unfortunately, our out times aren’t definite so I wait an extra 10-15 minutes before tracking down an ever-elusive manager.
