Friend: You always do stupid stuff when you drink
I work at Amazon. I have been there for less than a year. I started around Peak 2019 or aka when everyone floods Amazon.com for two months to buy everything that they think they might want for the various holidays lumped together at the end of the year. Amazon pays decently so I, like most around me, was happy to take the offered overtime. I faithfully worked more than 40 hours a for almost three months. Then it stopped. Then Covid-19 struck the United States and suddenly it was back along with extra pay all across the board. At the time it was enough to pull me out of bed for 4 nights a week and work 12 hour shifts back to back, sometimes even 5 nights. It was exhausting but my bills didn't stop and honestly I just didn't know what else to do. So I kept my schedule.
