From A Novel Writer To A Ticket Writer

Today is my last day working at this supermarket. I will take a maternity leave for... uhm, maybe forever? Cause I don't know whether I'll come back.

I've been working there for a whole year. I remember my first day, I was so nervous that I made a lot of mistakes. I didn't understand most of what people said. I thought those NOT English (at least not clear English as I learnt from school). But I learnt many things from working at a store, especially learnt how to handle a very demanding customer. Aussie people, especially the grumpy old man and woman likes to complain, almost on anything. Sometimes it's annoying but sometimes it's sooo silly.

Now I am a more confident person and can handle the most difficult customers.


I was promoted to be a supervisor on January. Writing a ticket (price tag) was one of my job as a supervisor. Some friends said I had a beautiful handwriting. Oh really? I told them that back home I'm an author. It's nothing to do with handwriting, actually, but still... this surprised them. "So what are you doing here, then?" Hmm, good question. But no job is a bad job. Now that I retire, I can start working on my novel (again). I, however, enjoy working in the supermarket. At least, as a ticket writer, I've never experienced a writer's block ;-)

A.K.


ps: yes, we also sell Indomie here. And that's my handwriting.
