The First Time.........
.....i got a job, it was the worst job EVER!!! it was at a local grocery store. i was under age, so i had to get a permit signed by my parents. i was just excited because i had gotten my driver's permit and i liked driving myself to work (accompanied of course). but let me tell you about my duties...
i was a cart-girl. yes, a cart girl! they had me and my delicate self lining and pushing carts back into the building in the dead of summer. i highly objected to this so i had a fellow teen co-worker do my carts for me. in exchange, i let him eat lunch with me (hey, i was always fabulous! lol).
then one day, they bumped me up to check-out girl. the issue with this is that they sold beer in this store and you had to have a blue name tag (meaning over 18) to check beer. if you had a red one, you couldn't swipe it. so i witnessed a fellow teen co-worker asking the customer to simply pick up their beer and run it across the scanner. it was a simple solution because if you were a red-tagger, you had to stop everything, call for a manager and wait for them to come from wherever to swipe it and it pissed off the other customers.
most people were happy to swipe their own beer because no one liked waiting for who-knows to show up whenever to do something that took 1.3 seconds.
MOST people....well, of course i would run into a snooty older lady one day who had some beer. i was checking the express line and i knew that they people were really gonna be upset waiting in express so i asked her to swipe it. you would have thought i asked her to swipe her booty across the scanner the way she looked at me. so i explained to her why i asked and she became enraged telling me how i was insubordinate for suggesting such a thing. she folded her arms, shook her head and huffed and puffed asking to speak to the manager. i called for him and i was fine.....
....until she kept on whispering under breath. and all i caught wind of was "makes no sense," "can't believe", "outrage," and "these people" SKREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEETTT!!!!
REWIND! WHAT people? i can't really remember all i said...just a lot of "what", "old lady", who do you think you are?" "take this job and shove it", "!*&% B!*^#*# !(^#!*^" as i was floating right outside the exit doors. end of job.
***WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST OR WORST JOB? EVER RUN INTO SOME DRAMA ON SAID JOB? SPILL IT.........***
