The snow fell down heavily, covering the Road as the large white van drove past the oddly empty streets of New York. It was only 4:30 AM and even then the streets shouldn't be as empty as it was. The van stopped at a red light. While waiting, the driver saw something odd; a man, probably a bum because of his shaggy beard and old looking clothing, was sleeping on the side of the road leaned up against the lamp post. As the light turned green the van drove on, pulling into a large parking lot that is surrounded by a plaza of stores. The only store that was seemingly open was the gas station, which was open 24 hours. The van pulled up front of the Big Deal's Grocery Store, and out stepped a six foot four African American male. He reached into his large winter jacket and pulled out a set of keys, and unlocked the front door to the large superstore. He walked right past everything and down to the janitorial office. He stripped himself of his regular, every day clothes and pull on his grey jump suit. He zipped up his suit and looked down at his name tag that simply read "Dewayne". He yawned and grabbed his keys from his jacket before hanging it up in his locker and making a fresh batch of coffee. Once his cup was filled he added his cream and sugar. He heard the footsteps and voices of the night guards leaving and the day shift taking over and heading up to the security room. Dewayne walked to the boiler room. He sipped his coffee and then flipped the switch to turn on all of the lights and electronics of the store. He then grabbed his mop bucket and mop, filled the bucket with water and soap, and washed the floors. This took him until around 6 o'clock, which was thirty minutes from opening time. That was generally when the employees started to get there. It takes a lot of people to operate a Super Store. Since everyone would be getting there soon Dewayne got in his van and drove across the parking lot to the Home Depot, and repeated all of his steps he just did (minus the cup of coffee). Jared reached the store right as Dewayne left. As the manager he attempted to be there before everyone else. He made sure that the rock radio was playing lightly over the PA system. He never quite got why Dewayne rewashed the floors in the mkenijng; the night crew generally cleans the floors and such. He expected that the days would be easy for Dewayne, but Dewayne took his job really seriously. Oh well, as long as Dewayne got the job done, who was Jared to complain about it? Jared went to the loading bay where he saw that the crew who generally loaded and unloaded all of the food and shipments were already strarting to get there. Things were on a good track, there was to be a new shipment of produce today, not that they were running low or anything, its just always good to have extra food in case it's needed. Jared proceeded to go too his office on the second level. He hung his jacket up and switched from his boots into his black dress shoes. He stretched an yawned. It was always a long day working ast the store, and today would probably be even longer. He had an odd eelin about it.
