Digs on the new job

Hello Everyone,

I haven't updated all week because I have been busy with my job. Our hours are long and I have been exhausted every day. But I am still having fun.

We open at 7:30am and close at 6pm. But those hours mean crap. Because if we are there early, say at 6:50am and a customer is there then we have to help them. That happened today.

15 minutes before we closed today a woman made a reservation and I had to drive about 15 minutes to pick her up. So I picked her up and made it back into the office by about 7pm. But her credit card didn't work so I had to drive all the way back to her place. We didn't even make a sale. I also had to take another woman too. I clocked out at about 7:45pm. We are supposed to close at 6.

As I was leaving some guy was there accusing us of taking his wallet while we were closing out his contract. He demanded that we call the police. So my manager had to call the police and wait for the officer to come down and write up a report. I dunno how he thinks that we could steal his wallet in front of him and other customers.

Some Indian guy asked my boss about our rates and we couldn't rent to him because he was under 21. So he turned to his friend and called my boss an asshole in his native tongue. But my boss is half Indian and understood everything. Why do people make assumptions ? So many people make assumptions about what language people speak based purely on their appearances.

This week our bosses invited us to a happy hour. This job is cool because it really is a happy hour. We are allowed to have alcohol, unlike my previous jobs where we were regulated. A lot of our managers were there so I got to meet them and talk to them.

Yesterday they also invited us to go bowling. That was cool too. I consider myself to be an average bowler, but I sucked so bad. The balls kept going into the sides and I didn't even knock down one pin most of the time. It was cool socializing with my coworkers. Everyone there is around my age, even the higher management.

Anyways, that is a little of how my week has been. I will write more soon. I don't think there will be any social events next week.

Ciao for now.
