The thirty minute work break

I am very fortunate to say I have found employment shortly after landing in Sydney. Not everyone does but because I have have years of hospitality experience, I had a couple interviews in my first few days and one place offered me work the following week. 

If I am to be realistic about my travels, I have to sacrifice some free time for a wage. One thing I dislike about hospitality is the thirty minute break.


I’m blogging whilst on it actually. I’ve found a nearby food mall and I’m trying to balance eating and blogging. By the time I leave the workplace, I’ve lost two minutes. By the time I reach the nearest place to sit and eat, I only have 25 minutes left. Well, not really as I have to take into account the five minute walk back so I have 20 minutes to chill. Take into account the queue and ordering process it might take 5 minutes to get my food, I have 15 minutes max to rush my food. I’m more grateful for employment, of course.

Ironically, my break is the busiest time of day, the only part the shift many people don’t get paid for. 

Isn’t life strange?!
