So today was the first day back at work after a whole 2 months! For some odd reason I was super nervous. So nervous that I didn’t even go out the night before to ensure that I wouldn’t sleep in or be a wrack going in like I usually do. My manager actually commented on how tired I DIDN’T look, that’s a first.
Anywho, my manager and I were talking and he informed me that if I keep up my hours that I’ll finally be promoted and contracted through Diamond by next month! So stoked! That new Diamond jacket and free parking all around town! Yes! We also talked about the new workers and apparently we hired about 260 people last season… What the fuck, for reals tho? I bet a fourth of them are already fired… Just saying.
But yeah… Today went by pretty fast, thank god! I looked at the forecast and it had mentioned rain around noon… But it rained before that, which was alright since I was just chilling around for the last few hours. I had to direct hella noobies with directions… Like I don’t understand why you need help when they give you a print out of the directions from the office and even a sky view of the lot, but whatevers. I guess not everyone is as gifted in navigation as I am…
Moving on, I was pretty ticked at some people who weren’t following directions, like for example, when you’re suppose to leave the lot, what you’re suppose to do when your lot is full, how to park the cars in a lot with no marked lines, ect. These are questions that you ask before you leave the office or when our manager does his runs. Not that hard.
Back at the office I usually get my work done in 5 minutes cause I’ve literally been doing it for years, but my manager actually came into the room and told me to help the new workers out. A little twinkle in my eye. *acknowledged* I got to the office at 1235 and didn’t leave till 1:45… OMG. Time literally flew by, I didn’t even know that that much time had passed. I guess this means that I really don’t mind my job.
The creepy part of the day? So one of the new workers came to “help” me out at my lot because his lot was full and I got to talk to him for a bit and he was actually really weird. He seemed like he was in his 50’s? Looked like he lives a hard life due to the old car he was driving and working with us. He had complimented my car by saying, “you must be married or something to be driving this big rig”….. Yes… My Honda CRV, alright. Back at the office he was more concerned with the amount of money that he would be making in the future than what hte company makes, makes sense, but the way he phased it was was really weird…
Great part of the day? Besides the part about my manager, these guys that park in the lot asked why a smart looking girl like me was working this job. I honestly told him that I actually don’t mind the job and do it for a few bucks, tips, and moving up the ranks, but I left that last part out. Very nice of them.
Anywho, great start to the new season!
Apparently I have neglected to tell a lot of people that Ngoc is going to Rome in 10 days… Swear, I’ve told people nonchalantly and maybe people forgot? Whatever the case is, he is leaving not forever of course only 10 days. 10 whole freaking days. Like what am I suppose to do during that time?
Anywho, it’s really reassuring that he told me that he wasn’t going to drink on the trip. I’m surprised cause I didn’t even have to mention it. I just showed him this article about a college student who also study abroad in Europe and got a little to drunk and walked into the subway tracks and died… Yeah… So he’s taking the extra caution to not drink cause he tends to have a little too much fun when he takes these trips. Good for him.
I am seriously jealous that he is going. Rome has been on my bucketlist for the longest, I guess I’m just amazed that he’s going somewhere before I am, I’m really happy for him. I honestly couldn’t imagine him going anywhere a few years ago, look at him now, so open to the world!
Can’t say I didn’t influence him!
