We have recently become even more technologically advanced at work. We have just installed check readers. Instead of needing to completely fill out the check, all the customer has to do is sign their name. The check is then run through the reader for approval. NOW comes the drawback: each time the customer uses the check reader, they MUST show their ID. This seems like a hassle even to me. Having worked at wM for 7 years, the readers there only checked ID periodically.
Tonight, I had a visit from someone who remembered me from at least 18 years ago. I previously related my tale of waiting on Professeur Peters (my high school French teacher). Tonight, I waited on her daughter. “I remember you. You were in my mom’s French or Spanish class.” Then she told me that she remembered seeing me as Rooster. WOW! Even with a little less hair.
Later, I had a heartbreak. A customer whom I know quite well appproached me and informed me that he had a little accident. “OH, GREAT! What did you break now :)” Then I came to the accident. His little daughter had a little accident and was totally embarrassed. I felt so bad for her. I told him to run up to the restroom to clean her up while I took care of the puddle on the floor.
AH… such as life during a nine hour day.
