Work

A day in the life of a production worker

Illustration by Rob Davies

OH NO!!! It's 6am and cold. Got up and everyone else (husband and daughter). Another day of work. Roll on 4pm!!! The world of burger manufacturing can be a very boring one.

7.40am
Arrive at work, have a coffee. Almost awake now!!

8.00am
Arrive at work, have a coffee. Almost awake now!!

8.00am
Start work, another 3 million burgers to be put in their boxes - well, at least it pays the bills!!!

10.20am
Thank goodness it's coffee break time. Need coffee and food. It's been a long time since breakfast.

10.40am
Back to work. Wish the coffee break was longer.

12.00 noon.
Lunchtime. I need a warm. It's cold in the factory. Time to catch up on gossip. Not very good today!!

12.45pm
Back to work. I was enjoying the break. Got to work right through till 4pm. Not fair. Could do with a cuppa about 2pm

4.00pm
Hooray!! Time to go. Wish I was walking - it's a nice day. Got a busy night so must get some housework done.

5.15pm
Time for tea. Shame everyone else isn't here!!!

6.00pm
Husband and daughter get home, both looking tired.

6.15pm
I have to dash out to my evening class.

6.25pm
Get to my sister's house. Her kids all greet me. Wow, they look happy. Leave for the evening class at the High School.

6.30pm
Arrive at class. D.I.Y. for women. We are learning to drill into walls. What a laugh. But we all manage it.

8.30pm
Leave evening class. Have coffee at my sister's, and a gossip.

9.00pm
Leave my sister's. Lovely moon tonight. Very cold. Winter is on its way.

9.15pm
Get home. Show my husband my handiwork of being able to attach a bit of wood into a brick!! He falls about laughing. But I'm proud of it.

10.30pm
Go to bed. Have watched the news. It's too depressing all about war with Iraq. NIGHT NIGHT
