So here i go again lol... hello everybody and thanks for taking time reading to my ever non-sense paranoia and anxiety.... tomorrow around 7:45 a.m ill be officially working at Ace hardware as a cashier (full time 40 hrs/week)... and this will be my first time job without the comfort of my husband's business and the comfort of our home as a home agent...

i already have work here in he US after i got my GC in my husband's store (handling cash registry, inventory, merchandising, cleaning, customer service etc)... the thing is i can what i want, i can do go home when i want and that i can just tell my boss (my husband) that i dont wana work today lol... so it isnt a "real" job per se plus the check im getting feels like not a "real" paycheck since it coming from our own business hehe... so i applied as a home agent handling cable billing (comcast) dealing with customer on the phone if they wana pay some bills, or if the want upgrade or troubleshoot their TV... the thing again is that there's a bunch of irate customers that they will yell and get angry for no particular reason and i cant handle such attitude which i cant blame them coz somehow they felt the company gave them a bad customer service... so after a month i quit... lol... :whistle: hindi ko masikmura (i cant stomach it) hehehe... i can say, my english is ok but when they started yelling, suddenly i felt like im talking to them as if they come from mars or from pluto... we cant understand each other hahah...

and so here i am again, was hired by ACE hardware last saturday and will work right away tomorrow... yesterday my husband and i bought some food for lunch for my work, lunch box, water bottle and some clothes and working shoes... and it really feels like its my first day of school :rofl: my husband and i were laughing about all our stuff that we bought and that im really really nervous and cant sleep and i think there's an elephant in my stomach aside from a butterfly. lol...

so this is it... i really hope ill do great tomorrow and they wont fire me right away hahaha... wish me luck y'all and may God give me strength and presence of mind while working...

God bless and will update you about my first day!!! :luv:

I'm 101% positive you'll do great! :thumbs: Every start of a new thing is always a cause for anxiety but then once we have immerse ourselves in that task/undertaking or whatever new thing, most often, we would find out that our worries were for nothing.

Sleep tight now, have the sweetest dear and GO GET 'EM tomorrow. I'm sure they would all adore you there. :thumbs:

Don't worry, you'll be fine. As long as you bought a Spongebob Squarepants lunchbox, you'll fit right in with your co-workers. :jest:
