I love my new job in the service station. In the main people are honest and kind. But sadly some are just thieves. They take a busy moment to drive off without paying for their petrol. It is frustrating and disappointing.
I am also tired of the ongoing disappointment of other people when I share what my job is. I love working in the service station. I call it “busy retail”. I am rarely bored and get to fuss keeping the shop tidy. It is right for me in this moment.
On one shift all 8 pumps had gorgeous bikes at them. Bliss. I also see some great older cars. People are usually happy to share about their baby!! I getting my own group of regulars.
There is an interesting gender twist with comments like “it’s nice to see a woman”. I am currently the only woman on the floor in the 3 stations.
I love my job. I am challenged by it in a different way from nursing. It is not less or better than, it just is!
