I work in an optical retail store and I am near the end of my 3 month probationary period. My manager was the one who sent me to counselling and that was how I found out that I have depression and anxiety. One of the main reason for her action was that I was too quiet which causes customers to lean in in order to hear me. Because of this, I was close to failing my probationary period.
Since I am in the middle of my mid year university break I have more than enough time to come into the store for training. Just to make sure that I know enough and that my manager knows where I need to fix in terms of customer service.
Today was one of those days.
In all honesty, all I did today was organising the overdue tax invoices and statements from the end of financial year period. Nothing interesting. But I did learn a thing or two and developed my telephone-ing skills.
One thing of interest was, I did catch the wrong bus to work today. It went to the same destination but took 30 more minutes. I didn’t realised this until the end of the trip because I was asleep for more than half the trip. I ended up 10 minutes late for work.
I hung out with a few friends at Oliver Brown. Voyageur and her family were mourning over the loss of her great aunt, who she barely knew. And she craved chocolate. I happened to be in the area and joined. 2shy also happened to be in the area and wanted sweet stuff.
It was a short and small get-together. We didn’t talk about much except work. Probably because I came back from work.
I will always be amazed by the amount that people can eat. Compared to them, I can eat enough for nearly 3 of them.
In case you’re wondering, I had a s’more waffle (for 1 person), Voyageur had a slice of chocolate cake and 2shy had a cookies and cream cheesecake. Both of them could not finish and tried to force me to finish for them. I didn’t because I was at my limit with the sugar. But was not full.
Here’s a random picture of a waffle. Not my waffle because I forgot to save my picture. All credits to My SeeFood Diet. A very clever choice of name. I see food and I like to eat too. 🙂
I am now home.
I am hungry.
My mum told me to clean my pig-sty of a room by the end of today. But I want to eat. And sleep. That is all I do when I don’t have martial arts training, work or uni.
