Total Goal

Tuesday, January 20, 2009

Well I had my first night on the new job last night. I must say right off the bat so far I'm happy and I'm looking forward to tonight.
- The people are great.
- The uniform is tolerable.
- The job itself is interesting and fun.
- They keep you busy, if you have nothing to do they play a game. The manager gives you a product and you have to find it. It sounds gay but actually it really helped me get to know the store. You have to find the product and read the label, so your learning. There are ppl who have been there for 5 years that still do this.
- There are always at least 5 ppl on shift so I'll never have to work all alone.

So far so good. It perfect for me at this time in my life. The discount to support my zoo at home is perk too. 15% is more then the 10% at most places.

Another girl started yesterday as well. She was dumb. I would have paged her at about 16-18 years of age. Did you know what Aviation meant at that age? I think I did. She got Aviation sun as a product to find and was looking everywhere! I told her to look in the bird section. Duh! I could tell that this was maybe a first job, she stood around a lot, looking stunned.

I found out the girl who interviewed me has 2 more years and she's going to be a vet. I watched in interest as she helped a baby snake (a rainbow Python) remove it's skin, he was having problems. So that was rather interesting.

Of course there's always dogs, puppies and such around. There was a 9 month old Newfoundlander in the store, what a huge dog. His name is George. lol. George, what a great name for the dog. Anyway, George was in the obedience class and decided he didn't want to leave. The lady had to drag him out! It funny, but frustrating for her. But I couldn't help but chuckle a little. George, lol.

There's going to be 2 beautiful Golden's for sale as soon as they get their vet checks. They are super cute of course. One is really playful and the other is really calm. OMG if only I didn't already have a zoo I'd snap up the calm one in a minute! She's so gorgeous!

Well on the weight loss front of things, I've been trying my best to take what I learned on weight watchers, and on NS in combination to loss some weight. I'm using the daily schedule for NS, with the point teachings for proportions from WW. Does that make sense? I hope so. So far I'm doing pretty good. I've been using up some of the NS I had left that hasn't expired. The dry cup stuff and such. I'll let you know how it goes.

Luv you ladies.

Yay for enjoying your job so far! How bad could working at a pet store be! When sad, cuddle puppy, life is good.

Good luck on the weight loss front. I'm sure you'll do great.
