I normally don’t mind going on business trips.
The business trips are a part of my job and I get paid well when I go on them.
The only reason I didn’t want to go on the current business trip, was because my wife had recently had a baby. She was still having a difficult time with the newborn, and she didn’t like to be alone overnight. I tried to talk to my boss about this, but he wouldn’t hear about it. He told me that I had to make a choice. I could go on the business trip and learn the information. This would result in me getting a promotion and a huge raise. My other choice was to not go on the business trip and possibly lose my position. I couldn’t afford to lose my job, but I worried about being away from my wife. I talked to her about the dilemma and she told me to go and enjoy myself. She would ask her sister to stay with her. The next morning I was on an airplane along with one of my coworkers. I checked into the hotel and I stood looking out the window and thinking about my wife. I saw that right across the road was a legal medical and recreational marijuana dispensary. I had never been in one before and I was curious as to what kind of products they carried. I walked across the street and looked around. I hadn’t planned on buying anything, but I didn’t know the budtender was going to be persuaded. I walked out of there with edible marijuana gummies that made me forget about my anxieties the entire time I was in the city.
