As you may or may not have guessed by now- I went to look for a job today.
I've never really held a job before. Embarassing I know, for someone who is almost 20. I thought so too. I decided one night whilst studying for my final exams that I have to have some working experience before graduating. I needed to save up as well, and start acting .. more responsible. Learn where money comes from. Understand my mom when she goes into a tantrum when I decide to park in Subang Parade (RM2) instead of Carrefour (free).
Well here's the summary of the whole Job Hunting Experience:
I scratched a luxury car whilst parking. I'm not going to mention what luxury car it was in case the owner, in some weird karmic order, reads my blog and decides to send me a nasty email. I'm just paranoid like that. I made a particularly sharp turning whilst turning into a parking lot, while also on the phone with my dad and .. well. That's when I heard The Sound. I can't even begin to describe the sound of paint being scraped/scratched off, so I'm not even going to try.
I went out to check the damage. It HONESTLY wasn't that bad. HONESTLY (okstoplookingatmeifeelreallybad). So I did what any other inexperienced driver would do- I fled the scene. And went to park somewhere else.
:S I'm really sorry- whoever the unfortunate person was.
I also broke TGIF's pen while filling in the application. But it got fixed in about 5 minutes. However those 5 minutes between Pen Broke and Pen Fixed were tensed because- what kind of an impression would I make? Waitress breaking the tools of the trade: the pen.
I was starting to believe that it was not going to be my day at all. Everyone kept feeding me the same, "We'll call you/My manager will call you" line. Needless to say, I was beginning to get a little disgruntled.
However, on the walk from mall to parking lot, Krystle and I spotted a RM5 note. On the floor. Pleading for us to pick it up and fulfil it's rightful destiny- to be spent.
We spent the RM 5 on Dunkin Donuts.
I had a Double Choc. DOUBLE Choc. Hey if you're going to sin- you might as well go all the way.
Was happy again. Alls Well That Ends Well.
