Going to NASA in the morning about 3am...I don’t look forward to waking up, but I do want to see what they have
*walks in to @Oegyein's pet store*I HAD MY FIRST SHIFT TODAY! WORKING PETFOOD RETAIL IS THE BEST!
The customers are generally sweet old ladies with heavy European accents or adorable kids excited about getting their first pet!
The coworkers are great too! Each of them sorta has their own specialty in the store, id est: one guy knew a tonne about rabbits (and totally saved my hide when a little girl and her mother who spoke in a really heavy French or Russian accent [it was hard to tell, sorry Val ;-;] came in asking about them), another guy knew an equal tonne about Thai fighting fish, and I knew a mediocre amount about dogs and bird food XD.
I severely underestimated the need for half-hour lunch breaks though. ten minutes in I was thinking "I've finished my lunch, I'll get back to work now!" only to learn my feet were writhing in agony within the fabric confines of my sneakers.
I also had no idea how busses worked. Apparently you're supposed to wave them down? Apparently only trains stop periodically at stations? Either way, I missed the last bus for an hour and had to walk home, which took an hour anyway + my feet-pain only got worse.
tl;dr I'm part of the retail crew now and I had a blast!
