I started work at the show yesterday, starting at 10am working till 10pm. Was pretty quiet all day, had the odd one or two rowdy customers we had to boot out. I was also the show pass bitch, wich basically meant i had to run down to the main gate and give a staff show pass to those lazy employees of ours that forget their damn pass!
At about 4pm this woman that was workin in one of the showbag stalls comes in all shaken up looking for a place to hide. So being the nice ppl we are, we asked her what the problem was. And as it turns out these four punks in beenies tried to jump her when she was on her way to the ATM. She was walkin to get some cash out, and the guys walked passed and stopped, turned and said to each other “lets get her!” the poor woman freaked and ran as fast as she could back to her stall. once she got back to her stall, they came after her, she freaked again (as you would) jumped the counter and ran to our bar for refuge. So we gave her a place to sit in front of the fire to relax and calm down, she stayed there till about 9 when we were beginning to close. She was ok after that, and a few drinks to go wid it too mind you. Some people are just creeps! i mean in a public place like the show, and they want to roll some woman for some quick cash! GET A LIFE!!
I woke up this morning with the worst cough, was going to call in sick for work, in fact i tried but they needed me or they would be majorly understaffed. So i went to the doc’s in the morning and got some anti-biotics to help clear the infection out and went to work. I only went coz i need the money, but i found out when i got to work that if i called in sick i still got paid! Made me angry coz i got a doc certificate n all coz i was late. Apparantly coz im permanent part time i get all the advantages as a full time employee, wich is awsome. so at least next time i know i will still get paid if im sick!
