It has been a year and a half since I went to work at Lowe's Home improvement. I spent a year as Commercial Loader helping customers load lumber and related product at the lumber loading zone. I loved it! Stayed at it longer than I should have. It lasted until I hurt my rotator cuff and ended up with tennis elbow along with it. I spent the last few months on "Light Duty" which primarily consists of sitting at the entrance greeting customers coming in and asking people not to exit there.
It amazes my how many lives I have apparently ruined by asking people to walk around to the other side of the customer service counter to use the exit door. All the cursing and name calling!
I finally got cleared to go back to loading when my diabetic neuropathy struck a dirty blow. I was on the last week of greeter duty when I developed a horrible wound on the bottom of my left foot.
I can't take the verbal and, yes, physical abuse as greeter much longer now that I have no end in sight.
My doctor has arranged for me to pick up a scooter that I kneel on and kick along with my better foot.
Thank goodness for my veteran status. I have spent so much time at the V.A. Women's Clinic and in the Portland V.A. Hospital in the last few months I would never have been able to pay the bills.
June 2017 is my 60th birthday. Where did the time go?
