She went to work in the cafeteria at her normal time and had a visit from the principal. He showed her the new schedule and several things to have the workers do during their shift. He then asked the girl if she'd drive to Syracuse to pick up a parent at 7:30 that evening. She agreed but realized after how silly she had been.
You see, the girl had to stay until supper cleanup was finished in the cafeteria. At the same time she was supposed to be at a SA meeting to discuss Reception plans. The meeting had been moved from 6:30pm to 6:00pm because of the students having joint worship.
The girl had a very sweet friend who volunteered to finish cafe cleanup and lock everything up so the girl wouldn't miss her meeting.
She ran to her meeting and got to stay for about 20 minutes before having to run off for the hour drive to Syracuse bus station.
The girl drove carefully through the snow and arrived just in time to pick the parent up. The girl arrived back to her house a bit worn-out around 9:00.
And that was the end of her busy afternoon.
