Well isn’t this interesting. Stopped at Starbucks again this morning for my first fix of ‘Joe’ and was met with a lengthy line. That’s not the interesting part (but if you think it is then that’s cool).
When I got to the head of the line I noticed they had another trainee working (also not the interesting part). However, in chatting up the Barista I tell him maybe I should apply, seeing as I’ve seen so many trainees behind the counter lately. He tells me to put my name in (that was the interesting part). Me, a Barista? Hmmmmm. And no it’s not me in the photo. I’m a tad…….more mature.
Further discussion with him told me that part time was available, about 10 hours a week. I suspect the hours wouldn’t have a lot of flexibility to them though, that likely you’d be bounced all over the place and perhaps wouldn’t have a lot of notice. If that’s the case it would mean an impact on my ‘Manny duties’, if they ever came about. Click on the link if your not sure what a Manny is.
Now I don’t think I’m particularly interested, or am I? I guess part of it is that my ego felt stroked and that’s always a good feeling. Whether he was serious or not I can’t say, but when I was leaving he did say “I look forward to seeing your application on-line”. I just don’t know if I want to work, at least not yet. After all I retired so I wouldn’t have to.
I think he was just teasing me, what do you think?
