I'm working in a pet boutique. Every Monday from 9-5 and then the rest of the week my schedule is flexible and I will be filling in for folks who can't make it in for one reason or another. This week I am covering for a gal who is caring for her mother who fell and broke her hip recently.
Today was my first day, and their busiest day of the week. Lots of phone calls for grooming appointments and lots and lots of people bringing their babies in for their beauty appointments. Today I learned to tend the register, which was new for me because I have never worked retail in my life. Also, when customers came to collect their babies from their grooming appointments I got to go collect them in the grooming room and deliver them to their families. This was my favorite part of the day...being able to hug them and tell them mommy or daddy was there to take them home.
I already knew but today firmed up the fact to me how I love people who love their animals. I loved talking to the little old lady who bought a big bag of treats for her baby, who was terribly spoiled, but deserved it. I just wanted to hug her!!!
