Work (mainly)

Post length: 592 words, about 2 and a half minutes.

Hmmm, I just had what I think was one of the best weekends of my life.  It was just perfect.  At the end of it I didn’t want Natalie to go home, I just wanted to snuggle up with her again and spend another two days with her.

But first, I haven’t written since last weekend, and I need to get all up-to-date…I worked last Sunday, and it was good fun actually (hmm, I say fun, but I suppose it wasn’t ‘fun’ in the usual sense of the word, but still fun in a strange sort of way, lol).  I was in 9.45 until 4 (they open 10 till 4 on Sundays over peak season).  I was working with John (the senior salesman), Gary (one of the other salesmen who I know from when I was at school), and the deputy manageress person (who’s name I can’t remember at all).  I was introduced to the warehouse and shop floor, and started off in the small cupboard in the corner of the shop putting all the games in alphabetical order (they were just in a random order before, but they are all in alphabetical order now…or at least were last Sunday, lol), then the deputy manageress and I went up to the warehouse and get some cables which were needed on the shop floor and we got some other things as well, just to stock up.  She showed me how to use the till (although I didn’t have a pin for the system, I had to use Gary’s) and priced them all up, stuck stickers on and security tags, and put them out!  One thing I don’t like about being on the shop floor, is that people kept asking me things…some people I helped (like the lady asking about speaker wire, and the lady who wanted to know the price of two printers) but most I had to hand on to other people.  In the course of all this I had to run up and down the stairs a few times to get things for the sales people who had sold things, which was useful for finding my way about the warehouse, lol.  We stocked up again, and then towards the end of the day I was set on to changing the tags from white to yellow (they change them every 6 weeks to show trading standards they check the prices regularly apparently)…and that was my day at work.  We looked at when I was meant to be working again, but the rest of the week on the rosta was blank (except Monday which was crossed out…), so I called in on Monday to ask Simon (manager) when he wanted me next.  He didn’t know, said he would ring in the week, didn’t, and so I called back on Friday and asked again.  He said 2 – 5 on Wednesday (which is the day they get their delivery), so I imagine that I will be in the warehouse then…have to see what happens.

Oh, apparently one of my friends from theatre school has put me on, and I have a 7.2, but I’m still looking for me…I might get the name he put me on with at some point, just to check up, but until then I am going to keep looking, lol.

The rest of the week has been pretty dull, with nothing exciting happening at all, until this weekend…and I think I will write about that in the next entry, just to break it all up a bit 🙂
Read on 😉
