Eighteen hours made for a long day, her third this week alone. Walking wearily towards the time clock she could think only of falling into her bed and deep sleep. Sleep for days is what she wanted, but she had to be back here in 8 hours for her next shift. Before her card hit the time clock, she heard the manager yell “No one clocks out! We have 15,000 more units to produce for this order, let’s knock them out and be done with it.” Angry, tired tears threatened to spill down her cheeks as she put up her time card and walked back to her station.
Feel free to use the words in any order you like and post your link back to the challenge page when you post it.
