Thank you :)
I know I only feel this way because I’ve been watching Korean dramas and they always have the cutest couples. But, I really do wish I had someone to be with. Someone to hold hands with and cuddle and just have the purest of fun with. Someone who I could tell anything to and they would understand and be there for me. Love is something amazing I think and anyone who has it is so lucky. So many take it for granted and throw it away like it’s nothing. But I would be so happy if I were able to just have it even if it were only for a small time. But to really fall in love is something I want so badly. I know I have a long way ahead of me and maybe I’m wishing for things to happen too soon. I’m sure I’ll get over this feeling soon, or maybe not who knows.
Okay, just going to state right now that the ‘stupid mistake’ was not mine. So last time I worked was on Black Friday. As I was leaving I asked the manager when I would be working next. She told me I wouldn’t be working the following week but the week after that and that she would give me a call to let me know. So I went through the next week like normal, waiting for her to call but I got nothing. So today, I get a call around 1:30 pm and it was her. She says: “Hey, you were suppose to work today from 1-5.” So obviously I’m thinking what the hell? So I told her, “well no one told me that.” Her response was: “No one is suppose to tell you, you have to check the schedule the week before.” So I said: “Well you told me you were going to call me to tell me.” To that she said: “Well I have someone covering your shift anyways.” So we talked a bit about my next shift which I won’t be having anymore this week so she told me to call Wednesday to find out the schedule for next week and we hung up. I’m not in the wrong right? I was even told by my trainer that I wasn’t allowed to go to the back unless I was working. So, it’s not like I could have gone back to check the schedule. Plus she did tell me that she was going to call me. She acts like I’m just suppose to know everything when I just barely started working. This better not affect me getting kept from this seasonal job. I do really love working there I just hope something like this doesn’t happen again. I’ll make sure it doesn’t.
Okay, so I got the job at Hot Topic! My first day of work/training was Wednesday, November 14th. I was so nervous to go in but I got the courage and got there early. I didn’t know if they wanted me to actually be in there early or what so I waited outside the store in the mall until It was pretty much exactly 3. My heart was pounding as I went inside. The manager smiled and asked me to go to the back to set my things down. As I went in the back I saw that it as actually much bigger than what I had always thought. The guy inside shook my hand and told me his name was Justin and that he would be training me. So I told him my name and sat down as we waited for another new hire who came in a few minutes later. He went over the basics and then gave us a few things to do like fold shirts and jeans. I have to say, the way they fold shirts wasn’t something I was use to. So next he had us go out into the store and told us how to greet the customers and how to help them with things. This is the most difficult part about the job. I’m not the most social of people and so my voice doesn’t project very much. I can get it there if I’m feeling confident but of course being in a new setting I’m not very confident at all. We did some exercises and I felt like I did okay. We went to the back again and went over the handbook then took our 15 minute break. The guy who also got hired is named Josh. He’s awesome and I feel like we could be good work buddies. So after some more going over things in the handbook and greeting customers on my own, we were told we could go home. The next day was training as well. We learned how to work the cash registers and I greeted more customers. I don’t know why they keep putting me in the front, I don’t like it haha. They probably know it’s a weakness of mine and want to get it out of me early. But now the next day I work is Black Friday and my manager already said I was going to be out in front again. So on top of just beginning and not being a loud person, I have to greet the tons of people that are coming in and help them with anything. It wouldn’t be so bad if I just had to greet them but I do need to keep my section clean and I can only imagine how messed up it’s going to look after that many people have been through the store. -Sigh- The joys of working. But, I am glad and very grateful to be working here. I’m already starting to get attached to the people and I hope they decide to keep me. But, in case they don’t I’ll at least have had a good experience here.
Thank you :)
