Had a horrible day at work. A customer said a price was mismarked on a shelf and I had to run and get a manager to pay her the difference. Of course, then a line ensured. In the meantime, the woman in question went into the aisle to show me the price (it was in fact mismarked) and she gave me her receipt. When the manager arrived there was a huge line which she had to help me with. The woman in question was apparently STILL in the aisle and it took us awhile to find her. When we finally did locate her and call her up, more chaos ensued as I had absolutely no idea where I put her receipt less than two minutes before! It was laying on a different register (I work at Dollar General; you know how their registers are set up.) and it took us about
45 seconds (a long time when you have a crowd of customers) to find it. I even checked the trash can thinking I threw it out. I was deeply embarrassed and frustrated. Luckily, this happened during the last half-hour or so of my shift, so I was able to hold it together before I went home.
I basically have little to no working memory and am really easily distracted. Oy.
I also meant to ask about
certain movements. I've noticed sometimes if I nod my head, my head will involuntarily nod a few more times than necessary. I don't think it's really noticeable to anyone but me. It also happens with certain arm and hand movements as well. It's like they get "stuck" a little on a certain motion for slightly longer than necessary. A good example would be a few months ago (I think it was May 6 when I had that weird arm and leg spasm in bed) when I lifted a case of beer out of the car with my left hand. Even for a few minutes after I put it down, the fingers on that hand still kind of kept making that flexing motion for a few minutes, almost like it didn't realize that there wasn't anything more to grab or pick up. Does that make any sense?
