Yes, exactly. Yesterday's chore is one that needs to be done routinely, and yesterday just happened to be one where two of us were told to make it our priority for the day. And so we did. And actually, I didn't think it worked out that badly-- sometimes there are technology hiccups that didn't occur yesterday. Or the space where one must do the chore is too hot, too cold, too full of customers. Or too empty, and one gets bored.

Well, co-worker apparently got bored and annoyed, but once his mother turned her attention to her job rather than interfering with his, my day wasn't so bad, apart from the annoyance of having a helper who accomplished as little as possible.
