Working Stiff

It had to happen eventually: today was my first day of work.  Driving into work I thought to myself that I should just go immediately to Columbus and acquaint myself with all the local customs before the school year begins.  Wouldn’t this be a better use of my time?  Sadly the more rational side of my mind knows that it wouldn’t be.

As a temp my job is basically to learn jobs quickly.  You don’t really have to master the job, but you need to be able to do most everything within a day or two.  Luckily I’m pretty good at this.  I may not get the fine details right immediately, but I pick up 80% after a try or two.  So my first day at the job went pretty well.  Of course I wasn’t learning most of the job, but relearning it since I held the same position for nearly two months last summer.  Enough has changed at the pharmacy (computer programs, procedures etc) to keep me on my toes, but I was able to stay busy for 8 hours with no supervision and only a couple questions.

Here’s hoping that tomorrow likewise brings no overdoses or lawsuits.

Apparently you are working so hard you cannot find the time to let us in on the secret world of pharmaceuticals. We are waiting patiently for your report.
