So today is the first day of work at the book store

Eugene, Oregon
December 5, 2017 11:14am CST
I will work today, 11 to 5, learn how to use the checkout for customers (point of sale) and probably be confused a bit. There is a lot to learn initially. I am not scheduled for too many hours so far and breaks are included in the schedule. I think it will be fun and I even get a discount! I am hoping not to spend all I make on books and coffee.

At least you don't have to clean up a messy spill on aisle 5.

It was quite nice really. The other employees were all helpful. I only bought one book today, Stephen Hawking's "A Brief History of Time."

Thanks, except for standing in one spot mostly for too long, it was not bad.

When there are no customers, you won't be bored. You'll always have something to read. :-)

True, but this store is very busy over the holiday season. I don't expect too much idle time.

Standing on my feet for six hours, minus a thirty minute lunch and two 15 minute breaks was not so easy. I will choose different shoes on Friday. Other than that, it was fun.

@JamesHxstatic Couldn't you sit on a chair James?

@Hannihar No, standing is the only way to do the job, but it is only a few weeks.

No kidding, it is really amazing, so many books I can't decide what I want to buy!

@JamesHxstatic it must be also hard putting a limit as to how many to buy as well!

I wish you all the best on your new job. Don't spend all your earnings on books although it will be hard for a book lover to resist the temptation.

That's great! I'm not surprised if you end up spending on books, I'd probably do the same if I work at the bookstore.
