Have you ever had it, where you can’t focus late at night or go to sleep? For some reason, I seem to always have this, and can never calm my forever racing mind.
One of the ways I usually try to calm this constant stream of thoughts is by taking a drive outside.
Usually a 15 minute drive is enough to do the trick, but if not, I do something else to get my mind off whatever it’s thinking, like getting fast food. While driving back, I saw a nearby fast food place still open close to midnight. I drove in line, and waited at the speaker, but no one acknowledged my existence. I drove around to one of the windows, and I didn’t see anyone. This was incredibly disappointing and I was hoping that someone was still there. Thankfully, I walked in and there was one person. I asked what happened to all of their staff and apparently due to insufficient heating, most of their workers didn’t bother showing up today, leaving their manager alone. While I can understand heat systems are important, it was very cold outside. At the most, there’s a slight cooling breeze. But the manager informed me that the heating system is apparently needed to deal with more difficult customers, otherwise the cold might make them snap. I bought my food and left, and felt sorry for the manager left to deal with no staff and no furnace. Admittedly, I don’t think I would be able to do that shift alone, so I am glad they had such a great manager.
