It was my turn to work at the counter at the marijuana dispensary.
I was there from 9:00 in the morning until two in the afternoon.
It was a short shift, but I had worked 12 hours the previous day. I was already starting to feel under the weather and I honestly didn’t want to go to the 5-Hour shift at the marijuana dispensary. I knew that my boss would be short staffed and it was only 5 hours, so I thought that I could find a way to power through. My boss gave me 25 minutes to eat lunch around noon. I had some leftover tuna salad from the previous day. It tasted fine and did not have any sour or weird smell. I had the tuna salad with some crackers. I also had some carrots and celery sticks with a little bit of peanut butter. I had a power bar and a Gatorade with my lunch. After I got back to the front desk, I started to feel a little queasy. I thought I ate too much, so I decided to ignore the feeling in the pit of my stomach. About 15 minutes later, I was ready to run to the bathroom. There is one bathroom for employees and it is right next to the manager’s office. I must have been in the bathroom for a long time, because I heard the manager knock on the door. She wanted to know if I was doing okay. I’m sure she could hear me throwing up in the next room. I felt very embarrassed about the entire situation. When I finally came out of the bathroom, my boss told me to go home for the rest of the day and maybe stay home tomorrow too.
