To the Customer at the Checkout Counter… THANK YOU!

Dear Customer,

Thank you first of all, for opening my eyes to the sad fact that I will no longer be working at my new job. Thank you for making me look stupid (sorry for the word) on my third day at this new store. Yes, you knew that I was a trainee and learning the system, but you gave me those demeaning looks and your fingers that you loudly tapped on the wooden counter while you waited for my supervisor to assist me, and that angry sigh that you let out, THANK YOU for those. Your actions made me feel so low (as a person) that I decided on that day to just finish my shifts this month and then I’m out of the store. THANK YOU because you made me feel very very STUPID. THANK YOU because I just lost a potential income for the next few months. Thanks to you, I am hitting the classified ads again to look for another job.

It is really nice to finally take them out of the cupboard and make good use of them. So last December 01, I made a Christmas-themed bento lunch for my second grader.
