But I'm not complaining coz this is my first foray into the restaurant world (which I've been dying to try for a long time) and I need some experience before I can work for other classier restaurants. I've done a lot of jobs from retail to office to childcare to...ok that's about it. I love working in different environments coz I am greedy and want to experience everything in life ha. Makes my resume looks impressive too :3
Boss man is very happy with me and was impressed with how fast I learned everything under 3 hours despite having no prior restaurant experience; reason why I got hired immediately the next day. I know people probably think me crazy but I do love working. I absolutely adore learning new things and I get a thrill executing things flawlessly and secretly thrive on busy days. I cannot slack off because it bores me which is a win-win situation coz my employers would love me and I get a kick out of being busy ha. Making customers happy also makes me ridiculously happy too despite it being draining once I'm off work coz I am still an introvert no matter how I appear otherwise.
Anyways, right now, I'm pretty happy because my job feeds me two meals a day, I can drink all the boba teas I want, get paid+tips and my co-workers are really nice people :3 One of them is this cute Eurasian guy who just got cuter in my eyes after he opened his mouth and out flowed flawless Chinese ok *___*
Also, I now know where all the cute guys in my school go to eat hurhur. Swear almost every guy who walked in are fiiiine. I have their names for order purposes but not their numbers u__u
So one thing I discovered after working here though is that boba teas are so not worth your money and I won't be buying them much in the future. It's 10% syrups/flavored powder/coffeemate for milk teas with 50% tea and 40% ice. I'd say they cost 30 cents or less each. Prolly less. Tip: Skip the ice. You'll get more tea that way and your money's worth. Well, more than what you would get with ice anyways since its still not worth the 3 bucks no matter what you do.
The same goes for your slushies and smoothies. You get no real fruits. Only scoops of flavored powder :\
Swear every time I work at some new place, my illusion of the world shatters one by one. Like how I worked at a certain popular lingerie chain store last year and due to my employee perks where I get stuff at super discounted prices, cannot bring myself to ever pay full price for their items every again.
I find myself becoming stingier each time I work someplace new wth. My asian side absolutely refuse to be knowingly gypped kays! Sometimes, I truly think the lesser you know of certain things, the better. You're happier off that way.
Although your wallet would be better off if you knew.
Give me a few more years of part time jobs and I'd probably end up a hippie living protesting against every world corporations as evil capitalist pigs and how everything should be free free free while living in trees and where every item I own would be leaves and other free natural resources wteff.
