Perhaps the definition of irony.

At my restaurant, about 99% of the employees are coupled up. We've got a lot of married people, a lot of long-term relationship people, and some college kids who are serial dating. Naturally, all sorts of people tried to get Saturday night off, seeing as it's the big V Day (gag me). I've worked Saturday nights since starting here, so even though I'm not looking forward to it, I was resigned to being there.

So imagine my surprise when I looked at the schedule .... and I was off that night. Seriously? Me? Arguably the most single person in the place, with the least dating prospects, and I get the night off without even requesting it? Hilarious!

I took pity on a coworker and took her shift, though.

That was mighty kind of you. I might have done the same thing back in the day.

Did I say "took pity on"? I meant "selfishly grabbed up a shift for myself on the busiest night of the year so far". :)
