I say "possible" in the title because I'm not sure if I want to stay in it. I'm a little frightened of this job because I'm sort of an anti-social person. I don't think I work very well with people; I'm more of the type to scrub the floor in a back room.
My dad volunteered me to work for one of his friends (since I don't have a job) as a waitress for a small restraint and who also owns a small farm (mostly crop growing than animals). Being a waitress was one of the many last things I'd try to do for making money.
The good thing about it is that I only have to work 3 days a week, it's nearby, and everyone is super friendly.
The bad thing is I'm basically the only waitress there taking orders, helping prepare food, and cleaning
The job frightens me a bit because the girl I replaced didn't teach me what to do well and (I was trained last minute for 1 and a half days before she left), it's the first time I've used a cash register, I'm not fast enough taking orders when people are poring in wanting food, and I also mix up the orders.
I've worked there for 3 days now and have made a fair amount of mistakes. No one is mean to me about it when I mess up with their order, but I always feel so bad about it.
I'm going to have to figure out a system
Also, I was told by the owner of the small restaurant that all the dishes are supposed to be dipped in bleach-water after scrubbed with soap. He said it was the safety inspector's orders.
Anyway, on one of the days this girl was training me, I was watching how she washed dishes and after she washed a knife with soap, she dipped it into the bleach-water and instantly after, she started cutting a tomato with it to give to a customer. I didn't say it out loud, but I'm like, "Oh no you didn't!"
Then I saw her do something similar again, dipping an ice scooper for drinks into the bleach-water and then instantly into the ice bucket.
Mixing bleach with food and water to be served to others CANNOT be good for their health! I wonder if all restaurants do this. I'll try to be the better person and rinse the bleach off before serving anyone.
So yeah, as far as I can tell, I'll be working Friday-Sunday for now on unless I become a nervous wreck and quit. So that's what's new with me. (Also, sorry for those who are waiting on the commission list. I've been upset with how my recent commissions have been turning out lately so I'm trying to come up with good enough images to illustrate. )
