It’s sweet getting phone calls about possible new jobs but getting woken up by them then getting asked lots of questions while trying to sound professional and not half asleep isn’t great. Plus I’ve forgotten which company she called from so I can’t research it while I wait for a call back. Whoops.
You might not realise it, but even Morrisons chicken counter gets regular customers, and working full time hours gets you to know them. A lot of them I hate, they’re regular but rude and arrogant, as well as always buying all the stock and leaving me with nothing. However I digress. A few of my regular customers are deaf and/or have trouble talking causing their orders to sometimes be quite difficult to understand. I really sympathise with these customers because losing those senses must be so difficult to cope with. Anyway, after realising that I would be seeing these customers more and more often I took it upon myself to learn how to say thankyou in British sign language. Saying thankyou to the customers is something I do take pride in if they’re polite and friendly, and I didn’t want it too be any different with customers I couldn’t communicate vocally with. When I do sign thankyou to these customers their faces light up and seem to really appreciate it which in turn makes me feel good.
I guess this is me making the best of my rubbish job. At least I can make people who unfortunately lost the senses I take for granted smile and feel good and show that I care.
