Recap of the new job.

Some of you may have noticed to recent posts, one letting you all know I accepted a job offer for a small part time job, and the second letting you know I was headed out the door to my first day. As promised here is a tiny glimpse into my first day.

I was really looking forward to it, and excited that it was my first day. I totally wasn't nervous, ok maybe a little bit, not because I thought working retail in a small children's boutique that consigns items would be tough, but it had been a while since I had done anything "New". Sure I had switched jobs here and then but that mostly consisted of changing health care facilities or moving floors, but never really outside of some type of medical world. So this, well this was just a little bit of the unknown.

I wondered what you talk about at a non medical job. I was so used to discussing the lives of patients, or doctors, or what the guest of the patient in room 3 was wearing, or how the patient in the waiting room has already been here 4 times this month. I thought this might end up being boring, with nothing to really talk about.

Boy, was I wrong. Let me tell you... you get a few moms together in a small store, some with small children running around, some with a baby in the oven, even some who dished the baby in the oven could possibly not belong to the same father as the other babies who came out of that oven. It was like as soon as they stepped into the store, they could just tell all, and not worry about it leaking out.... I must have missed the " what happens at the childrens store stays at the childrens store" memo.

It was an exciting day mostly filled with estrogen comfort talk, celebrity gossip, the who's who in local playgroups.... I'm telling you these women have more drama in their lives then the Real Housewives of the O.C. (But don't tell that to Alexis, as she thinks everyone is most interested in the daily happenings of her life)

I'm excited to go back, just to hear more chatter!  O and because I spotted a few things I will be spending my paycheck on using my employee discount on, because if truth be told, that is pretty much the only reason I took the job.

Sounds like you made a good decision! Glad your first day went well..speaking of RHOOC.. I am beginning to find myself on team tamra instead of Gretchen. It's going to be an interesting season.

How exciting! I am not sure how I would do at a job outside health care!

Yep. I love retail sales and this is part of the reason. I say as soon as my kids are old enough to not want to hang with me in the summer, I am going to work at Bath and Body Works again. It's so much fun.
