Every morning my brother will send me to the train station at 6 plus. Since my work only starts at 9.30, I'll usually have breakfast by myself and it's usually during breakfast that I discover myself. Like how I'm bloody unadventurous when it comes to food. I either go to the kopitiam opposite the train station or the mamak near my workplace. The food that I eat according to these places are limited to:
1) Kopitiam : Nasi Lemak Sotong OR fried noodles WITH coffee.
2) Mamak: Thosai WITH coffee.
I've been eating that everyday for 2 months, what is wrong with me T___T But I frequent the kopitiam more because the timing was perfect, After my meal, I'll enter the train that is not moving cause the one that arrives later leaves earlier but is damn packed. So I usually enter the one waiting and choose the perfect spot where the view is in the same direction as the train and there's a window beside and is spaced perfectly that I can lean my head to the side without leaning on the window. The I'll listen to my iPod and sleep. You know, things that make me feel like I win in life. Occasionally I miss my stop because I was daydreaming. The worst was when I was already running late and I missed my stop. Had to run to punch card, so embarrassing.
I then take the BRT from the train station. It was free for a few weeks and it was the best time of my life. It was freaking expensive after the trial period I wanted to cry every time I scan my touch n go card.
Then I'll walk through this long bridge that I love. It gives me time to think, like whether I have to time to poo or not. Just kidding. When I pass through this bridge every morning and look at the high rise buildings, it makes me want to work in one. It looks soooo cool and important but that's just a constructed thing.
Usually when I pass by this part, there will be families or couples from Saudi Arabia, walking on the bridge taking selfies. EVERY MORNING. Why you up so early bro, the world is not up yet. Sometimes I'll see the cleaners and want to offer them my beautiful smile but they never look at me, I don't know why.
When I arrive at the shopping mall, the first thing I do is go to the perfect dark toilet to poo. Hahaha. Cause most of the toilets are closed for cleaning! It took me 2 weeks to find the right toilet okayyy. Then I'll go to the security room, punch my attendance card, and pathetically put on some make up cause my colleagues don't think I did put on any #fail. But they don't know that in actual fact, my face is so pale it looks like I'm sick. There was once after I ate lunch with them and didn't bother to touch up my lipstick and it caused misunderstanding. My boss wanted to bring us out for "drinks" but I politely declined. He looked at me and said "oh, I know why, you're having your period." And everyone else was like "yeah, you look pale/ sick" wtf T____T
We usually gather and have a briefing then leave to our respective counters. On the lights, connect the phones, on the desktop and music, clean the strollers and wheelchairs, check the power scooter, check the buggy, record some stuffs, open the baby room. It sounds easy but this part of the work zaps the most energy out of me. My job includes attending to customers and phone calls, loan them the strollers/ wheelchairs/ power scooter, drive the buggy (yay!), make announcements, and getting unnecessary hate from customers lol.
When I first started, attending to customers questions was really tough because I know nothing! And one of the colleague that I'm usually paired with always leave me alone in the counter -___- At times when I don't know the location of a certain shop, I get unnecessary hate from certain colleagues too. Some customers are really nice and encouraging, some are just devils. My usual line when a customers approaches the counter would be "hi, good morning. How can I help you?" and certain customers that misheard me would go "of course I need help, why else would I be here then". So I just give them my biggest fake smile.
I hate phone calls. The fear is real. I hardly answer phone calls at home or on my own phone. I sometimes love making announcements, depending on who is on duty with me. Most of the time I'm just bored lol. Some of my colleagues are reallyyyyy nice to me. They treat me lunch and treat me like a princess lolol. Some blatantly ignore me. In general, I'm just an awkward, shy worker. I can't start conversations with customers and I answer them in a err textbook manner? Then I wait for my brother to pick my up and we'll be stuck in the jam together while singing songs.
P/S: I'm too exhausted to continue my crap, hence my half-assed post. But all of my posts are half-assed, LOL kbye,
