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...
