In the Store
Working in the shoe store is good honest work. And I love it!
My jobs range from serving a wide spectrum of customers (toddlers, kids, teenagers, young adults, mums and dads, middle aged and the elderly), specialist fitting of shoes on difficult feet (wide, large, narrow, small, painful with bunions and needing orthotics etc) to processing (checking & ticketing of new stock) & moving stock to various storerooms (ie piles of shoeboxes) to the mundane like vacuuming the carpet, polishing mirrors. Then fun jobs like window dressing and creating in-store displays, all in a store that is a family owned business roughly 72 years old!
It's challenging and mostly very rewarding dealing with those customers and the diversity in the job is far from boring.
Today I received a bottle of champagne as a thankyou for a period of very hard work. The gesture was much appreciated!
