school hols 2..
1 more week till sch reopens.. i have been working since last wed at x:odus holland village. hence this late post. its pretty faraway.. 40 mins bus journey from my place to hv. transport fees are high.. oh well, its better than town. i don't like working in town. the crowd turns me off. =l
low down of doing sales is my thighs ache fr all those standing. (hee.. if anyone
of ya are buying me pressies, get me one of those leg soothing gel or scrub ya? fully appreciated. =) locations: body shop, origins, scholl, sally hansens.) plus lunch/dinner at work are often clogged with old chang kee's oily snacks... don't think im gonna lose any weight after all. =p
HOWEVER, one great perk about this job is i get to buy a maximum of 2 pairs of shoes per mth! Yeah! oh right! my shoe collection is definately growing. *pleased* hmmm.. other than physical gainings and torture, i quite like this job.
though, i don't think im cut out for sales.
the story is: i sold a pair of white ballet flats yest to a gal with her bf. its was a size 37. the last pair. she didn't mind taking it so everythings cool right? well, not really. i found out that the color was yellowish instead of pure white. e inner me yearn to tell her about it and offer to check other outlets for stock. but sid (my in-charge) was around. i didn't dare. whispering, i told sid about it. hoping that she will 'allow' me to tell the lady. apparently not. says sell it to them since she didn't say anything about it. ugh. so, with a tiny
guilty conscious, i took her $ and handed her the bag with a smile. hoping that she won't find out about the off-color and still come back.
i don't know about others. but, i feel that even though we are trying to increase sales and hit the target, isn't good customer service our priority to serve customers well and sell them stuff thats of satisfactory quality?
that they will still adore that pair of shoes even when they reached hm? or after several times of wearing? i mean, i can't tell them that : "oh, that pair sucks because i've worn that for mths and it still hurts like hell." Doing sales is such a hyprocricy job! i can't even overcome my own conscious. oh well, this job is all for the money. but, next time, if the same thing happen again, and sid isn't around. sue me but i'll definately tell.
also relieved yet glad that i got my $210 starbucks training pay yest. i can finally go for a small shopping spree! heading down to topshop wisma later to get a paisley top.. goody goody. hmmph. next on my list is a joss stone's mind body and soul cd, a pair of jeans (hopefully i can get and STILL fit into TYPE 1 size 27) or more, specs for outdoor wear, a pair of sandals and black heels fr x:odus and perhaps some highlights for my black hair. these will be all set for next months pay.. im waiting.
xmas is coming.. won't have extra cash to buy pressies for my beloved friends.. so sorry.. *apologetic* i can only give ya a big warm hug. any takers?
P.S: btw, can i know whos the anonymous person who wanted me to lend him/her Carrie Pilby? well, i've returned e book. You might wanna go check out any libraries in singapore. chill~
