“Oh my gosh, this has to be the worst job ever…”
You looked yourself over in the employee break room mirror, sighing. You’d just received the uniform for your new job: Pet Store saleswoman. Okay, maybe it wasn’t the worst job in the world, but it wasn’t it exactly the job you were searching for.
Ever since you left high school, you’d been job-hunting like mad. You asked friends who were already employed, scoured the internet for suggestions, heck, you even checked the ‘Help Wanted’ section of the local newspaper! Seriously, who still reads those?
Anyway, you’d searched everywhere and were considering giving up when you found it. The mall’s Pet Shop. Whenever you decided to go shopping, you’d pass by that store without giving it a second glance. Unless there were bunnies in the front window. You loved bunnies.
One day, you were just about to head out when you spotted an employment sign. To make a long story short, you made an illegal U-turn, filled out a job application, and boom! Here you were, being the Vanna White of the store, trying to coax skeptic parents into buying little Jimmy a new dog.
You would’ve thought that you had to have some medical experience with the animals, in case any of them got sick, but it seems the boss could really care less as long as the ‘vermin’ were gone. Such a pleasant man.
You straightened out your nametag as you stood by the kitten display, a small smile playing at your lips as you watched them romp with each other. May be this was a good job for you. Not only did you get to be around the cutest animals on Earth for a living, but you got to meet some pretty interesting people too!
For example, a small group of German tourists came into the store, marveling at the wide array of animals. Of course it was rather overwhelming, seeing as you only knew how to say ‘Yes’, ‘No’, and ‘I love you’ in German. Somehow though, everyone left satisfied.
“Hey ______!” One of your female coworkers flagged you down on the way to the front desk. She was nice to be around, but loved to gossip. “What’s up?”
“Have you seen the customer at the door? He’s totally hot!”
Seeing your confused look, she tugged on your sleeve and pointed (So rude!) As your (e/c) eyes met his, you couldn’t help but blush lightly. Oh my gosh…
