My lucky day

I was rather worried as the day grew nearer. Finally, my cashier had her last day in my shop yesterday. I had put up notice informing people about a vacancy. Initially many non-Chinese asked about it but the boss said he only wanted a Chinese cashier who would be needed to learn the Chinese herbs and so forth.

Therefore, I added the word, 'Chinese' and I received lots of comments. Why Chinese only?

Never mind about that. Since it was Mei's last day at our place, I gave her some souvenirs..

..from Singapore and Athens, Greece

Then I was thinking: since Mei wouldn't be at the shop anymore, I would have to get to work early instead of my time at 12pm. What more, I wouldn't be able to take a break in the evening. Therefore, I would have to sacrifice my time..

Later in the evening, I was serving a customer and suddenly she asked me if I still needed a cashier as she had noticed our notice. Immediately I talked to her about our requirements and she was in.

I was so happy as I wouldn't need to bear too much of the burden. Hurray!

Another headache was my girl's transport to school since she started Form 6 three days ago. I had to take her to and fro her school. I actually dislike sending her to school but I had no choice as her former bus driver mentioned that her bus is full.

Well, I happened to know a teacher in her school. Her son is studying in the same school too. Out of a sudden, she came to my shop and called me. I quickly asked for her favor and she was so obliging. And it is so convenient too as she lives just a stone's throw away from my home. Problem solved and I only need to fetch her from school should she stays back for her co-curriculum activities.

I felt so good...

  1. Nice to get stuff taken care of. Just a note: If we put something like "Chinese only" on a help wanted sign here in the US we would be made to take it down for discrimination!

    1. Yes it is understandable that the Cashier needs to be chinese or at least other race who have been to Chinese School coz need to earn all the chinese herbs names.

      Hahaha...one more criteria the boss forgot to add la...must be fearless too coz some herbs are made of animal or sea creature parts like dried sea horse....some will geli to see.

  10. Good afternoon Wenn.

    I agree with Small Kucing, that the requirement is to hire someone who can read, write and speak Chinese, not necessary the person needs to be a Chinese. Don't you think so?

  11. Glad you manage to find a new cashier so soon! About the teacher who is giving your daughter a life to school in the morning, will you be paying her a token fee to reimburse her petrol cost?

  12. Oops, I mean a lift to school, not a life to school. Sorry for the typo.

    I know the feel-good feeling you are having when everything falls into place. Some says it is the law of attraction. Some says it is God answering your prayers. What do you say?

    Hope you are having a very enjoyable Saturday now!

  23. Regarding the race issue for vacancy, I would normally write "Able to read Chinese would be advantage"....
