The scale had me at 219 last night. Although I did only eat a big breakfast and a very, very light lunch and supper. So I suppose that had something to do with it. That said, I had to once again remind myself to stay hydrated.
The new job is going relatively well. I’m still waiting for the pay raise to make it all worth it but in the meantime my biggest problem is remembering that customers will not be happy with me no matter what I say. Some of them know the drill and show me their receipt. Others just hate the inconvenience and they will bitch and moan no matter what I say, or do. So the important thing for me to do is not to rise to their bait and say something that could get me fired.
The hardest part right now is that there hasn’t been much in the way of formal training. Mostly I’m just working with another “experienced” associate who may or may not be doing their job correctly. But at the moment, I can’t afford to showboat or be argumentative because that’s the kind of behavior that can get me bumped back over to the place I was getting tired of.
No one said taking a new position in the store was going to be easy. There is always going to be a trade off. I have to keep myself in the mentality of going forward and upwards and not falling back on old comfortable positions.
