I started my Ikea part time job last Thursday. It´s quite ok, I´m busy learning a lot of new things: Getting to know about the merchandise, the things we are selling and where they are in the shop; answering customers questions and directing them (as this is supposed to be a self-service shop), sometimes looking up the prizes in the computer, what things we have in stock and orders and when they will arrive if they are not in at the moment...
But, and now I´m maybe being too nasty...but I´ll just put it here regardless: One thing that has struck and amazed me at Ikea: It is that for about 50% of the young people working there this sentence would fit very well if printed on their polo shirts:
I sure hope I´ll not myself start growing horizontally as a result of working in that place... as the only direction I´d like to grow in at this stage in my life is upwards, mentally and spirtually!
Maybe she works at Ikea?
