Today, I did a four hour shift by myself.
Okay, the owner was sitting in his office in the back, but he pretty much knows squat about where anything is or how the till works, so I didn’t go to him for any questions of that sort. I told him this when he complimented me on having only two questions in four hours, which just made him praise how quickly I figured out the computer system. I think that he’s happy with my performance thus far.
There were a few hairy moments and dealings with regulars who weren’t happy to see a new person who isn’t a mind reader, but it was otherwise fine and the shift went by fairly quickly. Training isn’t intensive enough for lottery and tobacco products, so I’ve been studying the regulations in my time off. It’s not fun, but I did something the other day that would have resulted in my getting fired and being fined had the tobacco inspector being in the store. It was just a tiny little thing, reaching for cigarettes before asking for ID, but that showed me that I have to be proactive in my training.
My schedule for the next week is excellent, even if it is for only twenty hours. I have all four hour, later in the day shifts, never starting before 10AM. This suits me just fine. I’m off tomorrow and don’t work till six on Sunday night, so I’m about to enter my first weekend since last April!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Payday is this coming Friday, so I feel comfortable enough to go do something touristy. My rainy day option is in Campbell River and my nice day option is outside of town.
Tomorrow, I will miss my two regular cups of coffee and third mixed with hazelnut creamer. 😀Share on Facebook
