First Day of Work

Yesterday was my first day of work at Best Buy. It was an interesting experience. When they had me work the registers I picked it up really quick and I was really confident that I had it down. Then they threw my on the floor into the computer section where I will be working. That was when I started to panic. I know nothing about computers and tablets. I know how to use a computer, but I don't know how to sell them to people and explain all the inner workings of them.
I don't know what RAM and CPU and all this crap is! I hate going into situations and not being the best at them. I makes me feel icky and useless. Not a good feeling.
And to top it off the uniform is tan pants and an ugly blue polo. Not very goth friendly. I have to wear the tan pants and a white button up till my shirt comes in. I feel totally out of my element in these clothes. I would feel more comfortable if I was able to wear black pants. I have always had an aversion to light colored bottoms since I was 14 and started my period while wearing a white skirt.
Also, there are a lot of people that go to my school that work there. It's a little weird. One girl came up to me and said, "Aren't you that goth girl that I see around campus?"
At first I had no idea what to say so I just said, "Yeah, I guess."
That was really weird!


  1. Good Luck for your work :)
    I also like to wear black skirt...long black skirt if I wear two pieces, I can mitch match any color for the top, haha

  3. Don't worry so much -just pass off the comments and you can't be expected to know every thing !-you're new to the job -best of luck -(I'm blackbird 4 from swapbot)-I subscribed

  4. That sucks! I'd hate to be expected to sell something as complicated as computers if I wasn't fmailiar with how they work. Better brush up on your computer terms and general knowledge before the big sale. I'm sure learning this stuff will help you in the future.

  5. Oh MY! Hope now you are fine with this job and everything goes well, I understand how you feel, it will be good if they can sent you a mentor to guide you for at least half a day but it's just the real world. ALl the best~
