Pete: Day 4

Spring
Week 1, Day 4
Wednesday

Pete collects a frog, HypnoFrog, in the hopes of breeding them to sell at a later time. He also starts a small garden.
1

(A/N: Doors are now locked so pets are unable to go inside the store!)

He just met Malcolm Landbraab who seems to relish being an evil snob.
2

To prevent himself from saying anything that might lose him a potential customer, Pete steps outside and fills the automatic feeder.

He’s pleased to see Brytani Cho swerving her bike to avoid the cats on the sidewalk. Although … she could be trying to avoid the paparazzi busy with his phone.
4

Pete has enough perk points to purchase the one that temporarily reduces the price for restocking items.
5

That’s a bit annoying!
This dog empties the bowl and then proceeds to sleep with his head in it … preventing the feeder from filling the bowl and feeding those poor starving cats.

Pete did okay with sales today.

Hopefully, he can finish restocking before he slumps to the ground. Pete is exhausted!

(A/N: I had him take a couple of naps instead of sleeping through the night so he could get a few things done in the morning before opening the store. It didn’t save much time. End result: I’d rather him get a full rest instead of doing what I did. Poor Pete kept trying to take a nap when customers were there!)

Poor guy eats a little, takes a nap and finishes his food before heading to bed.
(A/N: I did NOT manage his time well today! Yellow hunger and fun bars, red energy)

    1. I felt so bad for Pete! By the time he was done restocking, he had 21 minutes left on the timer before dropping to the ground. It was a close call!

      I’m pleasantly surprised by how well his store is doing.

      The perk for paying less to restock is really nice but I think I will save my perk points for more permanent things. Hoping this is a good decision on my part. {{fingers crossed}}

    Poor Pete! Although, this part is a lot like real life, unfortunately, a lot of those that work in retail live like Pete, very little sleep, not much time to eat and overworked! I hope all this pays of since he is the owner. Hopefully, that dog that likes to sleep with head in the feeder finds another spot to sleep.. Poor cats! Great story, looking forward to see what Pete does to make his situation better..

    1. Thank YOU for reading & commenting! ❤
      I had no idea how closely Pete’s day mimicked real life. As for it paying off, I think it will … eventually. The stray animals add a bit of interest but poor Pete can never seem to keep the food bowls filled & satisfy all of them.

    When I worked at Dollar Tree, my poor managers often lacked on sleep and had very little time to eat or rest.. I remember conversing with my supervisors during our downtime and many times they came to work feeling exhausted!
